Better presentation of URLs in search results

today we’re updating the algorithms that display URLs in the search results to better reflect the names of websites, using the real-world name of the site instead of the domain name, and the URL structure of the sites in a breadcrumbs-like format.

Using Term Frequency Analysis to Measure Content Quality

In my latest article for +Moz I discuss a technical method for comparing your content to that of your competition. The article explains how the concept works, and even provides you with a spreadsheet so you can do these types of calculations for yourself!

The Current State of Search

New Blog post today on the current state of search.

http://joerega.com/blog/current-state-of-search/

In this post I discuss what search was, where it is now and where I think it's headed. As always, I'd love any feedback you can provide.
http://joerega.com/blog/current-state-of-search/ Here is a deck I put together that outlines a blog post I wrote on this topic. The current state of search is a lot more involved than it once was with more and more factors to be taken into consideration when optimizing a website. In this post I list how we should approach optimization and what no longer works. I'd love any feedback you can provide.

WARNING: Bloggers Beware - Image Licenses May Not Cover Social Media

When creating images for your blog posts, you're going to have to be even more careful about which images you choose to use. Even if you pay for an image to use within a blog post graphic, that image may not be licensed for use on social media - and of course we all want our blog posts to be shared to social!

I am specifically referring to fotolia.com, which has a subset of images that are specifically marked as acceptable for social media usage. You can purchase and incorporate those images into a blog post and then it's OK when you and others share that post, and image, so social. But none of the other images that you legally purchased can be used in that way, according to Fotolia's terms of use.

Upon further research, I also noted that if Fotolia terminates their agreement with you, according to the terms of use, you are obligated to destroy all of your purchased images.

I don't want to turn this into a commercial for +Canva, but at least there it's clear that you can take the graphic that you create, and any licensed and purchased images within that graphic, and use it wherever the heck you want.

"Once you’ve published your design, you are free to use that design multiple ways. When you purchase a One Time Use License for the images in your design, the license covers the use of the images in that design and restricts the number of designs the image may be used in, but not the number of ways the design may be used."

I also reviewed the terms of use for istockphoto.com and there's no such stipulation there, but I know there are many other services from which you can purchase images, and I'm sure, like me, many of you assumed that if you paid for an image, you can use it for blog posts that are shared to social.

So be careful out there!

Hard Numbers on Google Plus Activity

I have just published the data from a study of more than 500,000 randomly selected Google plus profiles, to see just how much is going on over here.

The bottom line? It's small, but vibrant. It is a ghost town? Not at all? Is Google going to shut it down? I don't believe it for a second.  Read on for the details, and let me know what you think in the comments below!
