A fascinating look at how the crew of Apollo 13 were really saved, all the behind the scenes stuff that never made it into the movie.
 
This is utterly, utterly fascinating (better then the movie!) Yes, its long. I wish it were four times longer!
Rather than hurried improvisation, saving the crew of Apollo 13 took years of preparation

Google+ posts can now show up in the "In the News" section.... but oh, boy, that snippet!!!
Google is pulling posts from Google+ in order to display them in the “In the News” section of the Google search results. It seems to only appear when users are logged in and following the brand on Google+.  But the fact it can edge out one of the three “in the news” slots, it could …

I really like this new style Google is testing, but it does take up a bit more screen real estate than some people would like though.
Google is testing a brand new style of mobile search results that is much cleaner and seems to take some style elements from regular desktop search. Google has taken the Google logo and placed it above the search box Android Police has the screenshot comparing the old style with the new, and I must say …

How Google Splits PageRank & Rankings Between Main Website and M. Mobile Site Version
While Google recommends that webmasters utilizes responsive web design, as it also perfectly fine for users to implement a m.example.com mobile URL strategy.  But this can sometimes result in links being split between two URLs which are essentially the same thing, just one is for desktop while the other is for mobile.

Want Your Google Local Pack Listing to Stand Out? Use a Very Long Address and you get white space to push your competitors further down :)
I noticed this example of a Google Local Pack listing, and noticed one listing standing out significantly. It is taking advantage of how a business can list their local business when they have both a lengthy physical address along with a long shopping center name. The reason was due to the use of an abormally …

Another new test -> Google Testing “People Also Ask” Box in Search Results, which displays various search queries as questions that Google feels are related.

The box appears after the top one or two organic search results.   Google then displays a box underneath showing “People also ask” with a set of additional search queries in the form of a question, …

If you have been waiting for the new AdWords reporting originally shown a year ago, it is now rolling out to all accounts.  A great look at the changes and additions by Susan Waldes​
Who remembers April 22, 2014 when Google hosted a livestream forum titled #StepIntoAdwords on upcoming enterprise level features that would be added to Adwords?

Only a week later, excited about the potential, some started questioning when exactly …

Consider this your warning... Google’s mobile ranking algo is continuous and it is very likely signals will be added to it after launch.  So be prepared for having to deal with more mobile-friendliness factors in the future :)
When the initial mobile ranking algo starts being applied to mobile searches on April 21st, it is essentially a “is it mobile-friendly or not” signal when determining the mobile search results.  But Google has confirmed that this algo will very likely continue to change. We’re always looking to improve our ranking, so this algorithm might …

If you want to hide the content on mobile for usability reasons, here's how to do it so it won't affect SEO and rankings.
