Announcing JSON-LD support for Reviews and Products structured data markup.

Along with the launch of support for JSON-LD for Reviews and Products structured data markup, we've cleaned up some of our application logic.  For example, requirements for explicit reviewed item and correct property name values are now enforced. Check your markup in the Structured Data Testing Tool ( https://developers.google.com/structured-data/testing-tool/ ) and Search Console Structured Data Dashboard ( https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/2650907 ) to see if your site is impacted by these changes.  For more information about how to format Reviews and Products markup to comply with Google's validation rules, see the documentation at https://developers.google.com/structured-data/

We hope these changes make it easier to use structured data on your side!

The Swiss are testing their emergency sirens today. We have sirens all over the place, and to make sure they work (since, well, we don't need them on a day-to-day basis), they get tested once a year. It's a bit .. alarming .. when visiters from other countries are here, but nobody should claim that we're not prepared. FWIW most houses here also have fallout shelters just in case. Ours is stocked with a big hand-powered air filter, pasta, wine, and a 3d printer.

This is apparently the technology behind it all. Well, at least it's from the official channel.

At 1.30 p.m. the "General Alarm" signal is sounded across Switzerland. This is a regular ascending and descending tone, which lasts for one minute, and is repeated once after a two-minute interval. Where necessary, the sirens can continue to be tested until 2 p.m.. From 2.15 p.m. to 3 p.m. (at the latest), the "Water Alarm" signal is tested in those areas that are in the proximity of dams. It consists of twelve low continuous tones lasting twenty seconds and repeated at ten-second intervals. The operational readiness of a total of 7,800 sirens is tested.

Planning on moving to HTTPS? Here are 13 FAQs! What's missing? Let me know in the comments and I'll expand this over time, perhaps it's even worth a blog post or help center article. Note that these are specific to moving an existing site from HTTP to HTTPS on the same hostname. Also remember to check out our help center at https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/6073543

# Do I need to set something in Search Console? No, just add the HTTPS site there. The change-of-address setting doesn't apply for HTTP -> HTTPS moves.

# How can we do an A/B test? Don't cloak to Googlebot specifically, use 302 redirects + rel=canonical to HTTP if you want to test HTTPS but not have it indexed. Don't block via robots.txt . More about A/B testing at https://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.ch/2012/08/website-testing-google-search.html (302 redirects aren't cached.)

# Will the rel=canonical guarantee that the HTTP URL is indexed? No, but it's a very strong signal when picking the indexed URL.

# What's the next step after testing? Follow our site-move documentation ( https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/6033049 ). Use 301 redirects from HTTP to HTTPS, confirm the new version by adding a rel=canonical on the HTTPS page, pointing to itself, and submit sitemaps including both HTTP & HTTPS URLs with new change-dates (in the long run, just keep the HTTPS sitemap).

# What about the robots.txt file? The HTTPS site uses the HTTPS robots.txt file. Check that it's reachable or serves a 404 result code, and check that your HTTP URLs aren't blocked by the HTTP robots.txt file.

# Is it OK to have just some pages on HTTPS? Yes, no problem! Start with a part, test it, add more.

# Should I move everything together, or is it fine to do sections? Moving in sections is fine.

# Will I see a drop in search? Fluctuations can happen with any bigger site change. We can't make any guarantees, but our systems are usually good with HTTP -> HTTPS moves.

# Which certificate do I need? For Google Search, any modern certificate that's accepted by modern browsers is acceptable.

# Do I lose "link juice" from the redirects? No, for 301 or 302 redirects from HTTP to HTTPS no PageRank is lost.

# Will we see search keywords in Google Analytics when we're on HTTPS? This won't change with HTTPS, you can see the search queries in Search Console.

# How can I test how many pages were indexed? Verify HTTP / HTTPS separately in Search Console, use Index Status for a broad look, or the sitemaps indexed counts for sitemap URLs.

# How long will a move from HTTP to HTTPS take? There are no fixed crawl frequencies, it depends on the size of your site, and the speed of crawling that's possible. The move takes place on a per-URL basis.


Hope this helps clarify some of the open questions! Let me know if there's anything missing.

According to Google 
"Search Console Help" there is a 
four Step process for migration from http to https.

https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/6033049?hl=en&ref_topic=6033084
1. Prepare the new site
2. Prepare a URL Mapping
3. Start the site move
4. Monitor the traffic
