Now this I'd like to see, looks like this project would be great fun... Um, or not.
The Google Webmasters team has invited any webmasters, SEO's, etc., who use the Search Console, to fill out this form to provide feedback on how you use Search Console message features.
Crawl errors alerts, new owner confirmations, malware warnings... We send a bunch of messages to site and app owners, and we'd like to understand how to improve the type of information we share with you.
Let us know how you interact with our messages and how you'd like us to improve them: https://goo.gl/tRgnHr
If you missed this post from Friday, Google is going to be allowing people to request removal of revenge porn. A welcome relief to many that need that cleaned up I'm sure.
Our philosophy has always been that Search should reflect the whole web. But revenge porn images are intensely personal and emotionally damaging, and serve only to degrade the victims—predominantly women. So going forward, we’ll honor requests from people to remove nude or sexually explicit images shared without their consent from Google Search results.
If you haven't yet read Google's research blog post, Inceptionism: Going Deeper into Neural Networks, I highly recommend it. Fascinating read!
For the last few weeks, Googlers have been obsessed with an internal visualization tool that Alexander Mordvintsev in our Zurich office created to help us visually understand some of the things happening inside our deep neural networks for computer vision. The tool essentially starts with an image, runs the model forwards and backwards, and then makes adjustments to the starting image in weird and magnificent ways.
In the same way that when you are staring at clouds, and you can convince yourself that some part of the cloud looks like a head, maybe with some ears, and then your mind starts to reinforce that opinion, by seeing even more parts that fit that story ("wow, now I even see arms and a leg!"), the optimization process works in a similar manner, reinforcing what it thinks it is seeing. Since the model is very deep, we can tap into it at various levels and get all kinds of remarkable effects.
Alexander, , and Mike Tyka wrote up a very nice blog post describing how this works:
There's also a bigger album of more of these pictures linked from the blog post:
I just picked a few of my favorites here.
This is great, been wondering why we didn't have taglines for collections.
But isn't in a hurry. Word is it will be rolling out over several months, so we're not likely to see an overnight storm.
Well that's different, but you can be sure the results will nevertheless still be tracked and analyzed with great interest. Of course spreading it out like that also ensures that other updates will be happening in the interim, so my personal opinion is that our perception of it is not likely to be as black and white as one would like.
Agreed on the excellent points made by here and I think there are too many people trying to throw out the baby with the bath water. The whole point of the WWW was hyperlinking, as you can see from this link to the very first www site.
Properly sourced articles also show relevancy and can indicate trust, which are good signals for ranking, but it seems like some people would rather turn the Internet back 20 years.
Matt Cutts has also repeatedly recommended including source links in your articles, as he says in the following video.
I really appreciate when there is a link somewhere relatively close to the top of the article...
The other thing I hate is, whenever you've got a regular news report... and they don't link to the source. I mean c'mon! Link to your sources, whether you're a journalist, whether you're a blogger. youtu.be/ZLLyIwUIXcc?t=48s
So as Mark says, relevant linking helps, it doesn't hurt:
Furthermore, there is no evidence that creating relevant links to good sources hurts the SEO of your site. In fact, the largest and most careful studies show a small, but still positive, correlation between the number of outbound links and the search ranking power of a site.

This is a reminder about last week's post warning against using interstitials, especially on mobile devices. Users hate them and Google officially recommends against using them, and you know what that's gonna mean.
Yes, Forbes. That includes your "quotes." If I ever...
Interstitials are those windows that ask you to join a mailing list, install an app, etc. that block the content you are trying to see. Everyone hates them, but they are still everywhere.
Google is officially recommending they not be used for mobile, where they tend to be even more disruptive than on desktop.
I wish they would go away everywhere.
Please be mindful with noindex directives and remember that most search engines will honour it, even if it's in the BODY element.
Check your includes, make sure you're not injecting in the DOM a noindex directive! I found the easiest way to do this is with the Chrome Dev tools: open it up on the page you want to check, hit Ctrl+F (or Cmd+F for those who like fruity flavours), and then type noindex. Nothing found? Great!
If you find something like this:
<meta name="robots" value="noindex" />
Probably not so great. Maybe fix?
Webmasters should find Google's new explanation of how to use breadcrumbs quite useful.
