Close your eyes and imagine a world where web pages are ranked not only on popularity — i.e., the links that point to them — but also by the accuracy of information they contain. That world may not be too far off.
Will Google someday rank web pages based on how accurate they are? A new paper suggests they might.

"Semantic search is a little bit like rocket science"

Say the venerable +David Amerland, though its "effects though aren’t."

I especially like this value proposition for the construction of ontologies.

_The structured data within a knowledge-based index reveals more shortcuts to computing the answer to search queries because they expose relational connections to concepts, within the ontologies mapped in the system. To understand the advantage offered by structured data and ontologies consider the magnitude of the task when asked to count how many yellow marbles exist in a room filled floor-to-ceiling with marbles and how much easier it becomes when all the marbles in the room have been placed in square boxes, each containing ten marbles and stacked by colour. _

The latest Bing Ads Editor, the indispensable desktop tool for (PC users only) managing campaigns, is now available with several new features. Here’s a look at what the new BAE has to offer.
Changes include some subtle but welcome usability updates and, best of all, the ability to edit the text of keywords that have already been synced.

Is Link Building Dead?

+John Mueller said in the hangout:

"That is a good question.

In general, I’d try to avoid that.

So that you are really sure that your content kind of stands on its own and make it possible for other people of course to link to your content. Make it easy, maybe, put a little widget on your page, if you like this, this is how you can link to it. Make sure that the URLs on your web site are easy to copy and paste. All of those things make it a little bit easier.

We do use links as part of our algorithm but we use lots and lots of other factors as well. So only focusing on links is probably going to cause more problems for your web site that actually helps."
