Every time I use my phone to browse (which starts every morning on the train to work), I realize there's still so much more to do to encourage websites to be awesome on smartphones.

I still do not see how this animal would produce more alcohol sales?  One would think in seeing this animal in a bar that they had already drank too much.

Well, we are digressing from the original topic/question
how the GoogleBot sees such bad practices.

My guess is GoogleBot sees it differently. ;-)


The intent behind is often marketing but sometimes also for technical reasons.

( https://developers.google.com/app-indexing/ )

I do not see any good reason why to turn the open web into a landscape of walled gardens.

So we are coming again to the point does Google do it better?

Excluding without technical or legal reasons some devices or web browsers from accessing content on the web is evil!

I'd love to see more of how the Webmaster Tools API is being used, or where people are otherwise reusing data from Webmaster Tools. Who has some neat examples, or ideas? What would you love to see in an updated API?

I really would like to have an EASY way to export ALL crawl-errors (not only 5.000) and also ALL "linked from" data for those crawl errors.

That way I could decide, which crawls errors are important enough to take care of...

Really enjoyed reading through this article on Larry -- it's definitely exciting working here, with his ambitious ideas!
One day in July 2001, Larry Page decided to...

+John Mueller you should have warned us about the length of this piece. I've been vortexed into it in the first few paragraphs and 50% into it at this point. I scrolled down deciding whether I should continue or not and found bibliography at the bottom. I'm continuing to read now. +Nicholas Carlson you brilliant son of a gun.

I listened to all kinds of Voodoo Chil[de] interpretations from YouTube this morning (hey, why not :)). There are some awesome versions out there, and some that surprised me.

Kids' bands are always fun, but the lead guitarist here is pretty good: KGMC Band - Voodoo Child - Jimi Hendrix - Cover 

How about Finnish? I have no idea what the lyrics mean, but here's Huuruissa (Voodoo Chile cover in Finnish)

Apparently an improvised audience request .. on piano: Johannes Kiem "Voodoo Chile" (Hendrix) Paraphrase

Another 12 year-old: Voodoo Chile' ~ Hendrix cover by Alex Shaw~ 12 yr old lead guitarist Feb 2013 

Mandolin? Really? but it's not even that bad Jimi Hocking - Voodoo Chile (Blues Mandolin)

Harmonica wasn't surprising to find, but actually pretty reasonable: VooDoo Child (Chile) - Jimi Hendrix cover by Dick Earl - Harmonica

What did I miss?
