John Mueller Confirms Google Update Wasn’t Panda or Penguin
In today’s Google Webmaster Hangout, the inevitable question came up about the fluctuations people have been seeing in the search results.  John was asked specifically if there was a Panda or Penguin update. We didn’t update anything that I’m aware of.  I saw Barry’s blog post about some changes he was seeing on the weekend.  …

Introducing Google+ Collections - Posts by Topic

An attractive new Google+ feature designed to display posts in a more graphic and topical format. This is gonna be great fun diving into.

#GooglePlusUpdate   #Collections  
 
Introducing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic

Our happiest Google+ users are those who connect with others around shared interests and passions. So we set out to give people a place to express the things they love. Today, we’re announcing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic.

Every collection is a focused set of posts on a particular topic, providing an easy way for you to organize all the things you’re into. Each collection can be shared publicly, privately, or with a custom set of people. Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections.

Posts in collections you follow will appear in your Home stream, with a link to easily jump right into the collection so you can get to similar content from that author. Collections give you a great way to find more of the stuff you love from the people you follow.

Collections is available on Android and the web, and iOS is coming later. For Android users, make sure to update your Google+ app to get access to Collections.

For inspiration on interesting topics, check out our Featured Collections page here: g.co/collections

Create your collections today and share what you love.

Look Who's Just Posted Their First Tweet.

Funny I don't see any posts on +Twitter's G+ page. Since their recent data sharing agreement it appears Google is getting more into Twitter.
 
Do you tweet? Well now we do too. Follow @GooglePlus on Twitter. https://twitter.com/GooglePlus

Officially More Searches On Mobile Than Desktop

Wow! This is a significant milestone that's been passed. Who would've thought we'd be here this fast just a few years ago?


From Google's AdWords Blog:

Billions of times per day, consumers turn to Google for I want-to-know, I want-to-go, I want-to-do, and I want-to-buy moments. And at these times, consumers are increasingly picking up their smartphones for answers. In fact, more Google searches take place on mobile devices than on computers in 10 countries including the US and Japan.1 This presents a tremendous opportunity...

Well if you haven't gone all emoji in your title tags yet, it might be too late.  Google won't be showing emojis in titltes soon...
Emojis in Google search result titles will be disappearing soon according to John Mueller in today’s Google Webmaster Hangout. The question was raised about the new emojis showing up in the titles of Google search results, and even John admitted he liked them when he first saw them, but of course that quickly changed. I …

We are making some changes to streamline the Google+ experience, including removing Google+ Local from the navigation bar.

We look forward to rolling out more features and improvements based on your feedback in the future.

If you hit that sort button on the right you can compare date periods... Like last 14 days vs previous. I don't recommend doing last 10 ;)

Microsoft's new technology guesses my age, apparently also that of my button.

Surprised the age guessing can be frightfully close, but if you don't like the guess, just keep feeding it some more selfies.

Actually, this new how-old.net age guessing tool is kind of fun.

+Stephan Hovnanian I've found if you play with the pictures a bit, you can get close to any age you like. 

+Wade Harman apparently it was not too keen on my style, but I say, don't judge a shirt by its button.

Great place to take the kids, the staff is friendly and helpful. And the kids naturally have a blast looking at all the cool exhibits and animals. Have taken my kids there many times over the years and they never got bored. Thankfully the lions stay in their pens and the snakes don't get out of their boxes. But if you like to touch animals & don't mind smelly goats, the children's petting zoo is the way to go.
