"Pages with schema.org integrations rank better by an average of four positions compared to pages without schema.org integrations"

This being probably the most notable finding from the final version of the  +Searchmetrics "study of tens of thousands of keywords and more than half a million domains" headed "Schema.org in Google search results" (see the request button at the bottom of the page for the full PDF):
http://www.searchmetrics.com/en/knowledge-base/schema/

The study authors are quick to note that correlation does not necessarily imply causation, although they correctly acknowledge that there's a logical connection between structured data use and search engine visibility.

"Whether the use of HTML markups does genuinely affect the ranking of a domain, as it would appear from the data, is hard to say. In fact, it may be due in part to interaction with other factors."

"However, it can be said that the inclusion of HTML tags from schema.org to clearly flag up the content of the page will greatly help search engines better understand the Web’s content – and that is an essential consideration for a good ranking."

Other notable factoids from the study:

- Only 0.3% of domains in their sample included schema.org [1]
- "Google enhances search results with schema.org markups in more than 36% of keyword queries" [2]
- Movie, Offer, TVSeries and Review were the item types that most often ended up generating rich snippets in the SERPs (compare this to the most common schema.org classes by domain from the lastest Common Crawl data - WebPage, Article, Blog, Product - and most common schema.org classes by no. of entities - Product, Offer, Person, PostalAddress, Organization)

[1] Making for the best pie chart evah
[2] I'm interpreting this as "for 36% of our sample queries we observed a rich snippet in the top 50 results [their query depth] that appeared to be based on the presence of schema.org markup."  The language of this study leaves a lot to be desired.

I wonder if there's a Pavlonian response aspect to this headset. For example:

Dog begins to think he might be hungry > 
Speaker announces dog is hungry > 
Dog eventually learns that when the speaker says "hungry" it's about time to eat > 
Every time the dog thinks he might be hungry he actually becomes hungry.

I wrote a new post today about using Screaming Frog to bulk test for Google+ Authorship and other forms of structured data. It's a quick 5 minute video, so not a difficult concept. You just need a paid license for Screaming Frog and you'll be on your way.
 
Using Screaming Frog to Scale Structured Data Testing

Check out +Kane Jamison's latest post on the +Moz blog today:

"Quick Guide to Scaling Your Authorship Testing with Screaming Frog"

Kane recorded a quick 5 minute video showing how you can use Excel, Screaming Frog's custom filters feature, and Google's Structured Data Testing Tool together.

Content Marketing ≠ Content Strategy

If you've used the phrases "Content Marketing" and "Content Strategy" interchangeably, please stop it and read this: http://hmny.co/H1DpOE

Thanks to +Jonathon Colman for sharing.

Yeah - there's a couple mobile apps that will do them. Cinemagram and Flixel and Echogram seem to be the 3 larger ones on iphone. Or, you can just record a quick movie file on any video camera and do them on a laptop/desktop. I haven't found a great desktop app yet for Windows. There are a couple that are too flawed for me to embrace them. Do some searches for "How to Make Cinemagraphs" and you 'll come up with some good tutorials. The two above were both done with Flixel.

Pretty cool doodle activity. This guy observes nearby passengers on airplanes and then doodles cartoon heads for them on post-it notes. See more of the at http://www.doodlersanonymous.com/post/2082/doodlers-assemble/

Media Temple just got acquired by GoDaddy. Even if the quality levels stay high, I'm not sure how I feel about that combination. I was already in the process of "divesting" from the my GoDaddy account due to their owner's habits and their sales techniques. On the flipside I will give GoDaddy credit that their customer service has gotten way better in the past couple years.

We hired Akina Designs to install a brick walkway and patio at our home in West Seattle. Wendy was very flexible with our project requirements and helping us restrict the scope of the project to fit into our budget. The crew was also able to complete a large job in just a few days and fit our project into their overall schedule in order to complete it by our short deadline. They finished up earlier this week and it looks excellent and blends well with the other landscaping projects that we've been doing ourselves. I really appreciated the flexibility of Wendy and the crew throughout the process - I don't think other companies would have been quite so accommodating to our needs and requests and as a result I'd definitely hire Akina Designs again in the future, and recommend them to our friends.
