Mmmh, coffee.
2015. Made with Carbonmade. Breakfast. We are totally morning people. We love watching the sun rise with a cup of hot tea in a kitchen filled with delicios smells of breakfast. This is a growing gallery of our morning foods.

69% of the visits abandoned our page. These users neither went to the app store nor continued to our mobile website.

In other words nobody likes app download interstitials, so stop.

The new top level domains are a good opportunity for folks to get that domain name they really wanted for their website or business. A bunch of Googlers got together to work out a short FAQ on how they're handled in search, the result is linked below. Somewhat simplified: if you spot a domain name on a new TLD that you really like, you're keen on using it for longer, and understand there's no magical SEO bonus, then go for it :-).

Any webmasters / SEOs in Malta interested in meeting for a coffee / chat next week? I have a bit of time on Wednesday or Thursday and thought it would be a fun change to meet up in Sliema or Valletta for a coffee and Webmaster / Google Web search chat. Drop me a note if you're interested!

HTML validation and Google's web-search ... validation isn't necessary for crawling, indexing, or ranking, as we've said [1] many times in the past. However, if you have problems with meta-tags, structured data, or link-elements (for example, if your hreflang markup isn't being picked up properly), then using a HTML validator can sometimes point you at problems in your markup.

In a recent example, a site was accidentally including a banner in the HEAD of a page. That might look ok in a browser, but it breaks the markup in the HEAD, causing us to potentially ignore the rest of it. A HTML validator can catch that for you. While validators aren't perfect, they will help you get closer to clean markup, which will make it easier to automatically extract your site's meta-data. 

Personally, I use the https://validator.w3.org/ when I need one, there are lots of other options too.

... and this is how you recognize a gigantic opportunity and take it by the horns. 50% market share, 1% coverage, potential to chance society along the way. If your company is active globally and wants to remain relevant, these are the kinds of countries you need to be active in first-hand. 
 
Here is the video clip of my chat with Bloomberg today. Loads of fun!!

Hopefully you've either updated Java, or removed it from your computer.

Oracle issued a Godzilla-sized Critical Patch Update on Tuesday, fixing a stonking 193 new security vulnerabilities in its software. And with at least one new Java vulnerability being actively exploited in the wild, it's time you did something about it.
