Again, I'm glad I've always kept SEM as a key part of my services: AdWords won't reveal spending threshold and you might need a continuous set of campaigns running -> Google AdWords Requirements for Detailed Keyword Planner Data via +Jennifer Slegg #ppc #seo 
Facebook Twitter Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Email WhatsApp Evernote SMSA few days ago, Google AdWords shut off detailed Keyword Planner data from all AdWords accounts except for those advertisers above a specific threshold.

Aggregated reports in Search Console, how do they work? A.k.a. "Why didn't you find my new AMP pages?"

I've seen a few posts here & there about this, so I thought I'd try to make a short post here. The tl;dr is "abrupt changes take time to be visible in Search Console." 

When it comes to the aggregated reports in Search Console, there are two time-elements involved that are good to be aware of:

1) latency from crawling to reporting. It takes a few days (to about a week) for Search Console to display data after it's been crawled. There are various processes that run over the data, and Search Console tries to reflect the final state -- which can take a bit of time to get. This is particularly visible with an abrupt change, such as going from "no AMP pages" to "lots of AMP pages".

2) Per-URL crawl rates differ. Some URLs are crawled every few minutes, others just every couple months, and many somewhere in between. If you go from "all URLs are broken" to "all URLs are fixed" (which is awesome if you have a way to do that!), it will take some time to drop to "zero errors" in the aggregated reports. This is probably too much, but I created a simple spreadsheet to show that, feel free to make a copy & play with it: https://goo.gl/1pToL8 (screenshot here too)

When it comes to AMP, if you've recently set it up for your site (woot!), I'd recommend checking the live URLs in the meantime. That way, you can double-check the important pages right away, and use the aggregated reports as a way of spotting stragglers. 

1. Read the Google Search guidelines for AMP pages: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/6340290 

2. Make sure your pages technically implement AMP correctly: https://www.ampproject.org/docs/guides/validate.html
You can check this in a browser for any AMP page - don't be afraid of Chrome's Dev-Tools :). 

3. Double-check that you're using the right markup ( https://developers.google.com/structured-data/rich-snippets/articles ) using the Structured Data Testing Tool: https://developers.google.com/structured-data/testing-tool/

If you have more questions on AMP, how they're shown in Google Search, or about the reporting in Search Console, feel free to drop by our help forum at https://goo.gl/5msNI6

You've done everything right in terms of local SEO -- but you just can't seem to get a place in the map pack. What's wrong? Joy Hawkins explores possible causes:

This looks like one more thing for me to lose.  But cool nonetheless!
 
FINALLY.

I had a great, educational experience at On-point and I want to thank Evan for taking the time to teach my friend and I what we needed to know prior to purchase. As it's appointment only, Evan worked around our schedule and it was greatly appreciated. Whilst I grew up around guns, my friend had not and Evan helped to educate her and lesson the fear that often comes with lack of knowledge. Great local business in St. Pete and I would highly recommend.

I just moved here 3 weeks ago, found myself working late at home on Thursday so I Googled restaurant delivery services and found 727FoodNow. The delivery time estimate was an hour and a half and it came in 45 minutes, very friendly delivery person. Excellent overall experience and I will certainly be using you again. Thank You

I hate to leave such a nasty review for a place I have enjoyed multiple times but my last two Karaoke experiences were awful. I can only put it down to good old fashion racism. When John is there, he is wonderful and polite and we've never struggled to get an English remote or English words on the screen. But the last two times, a woman with shoulder length hair has been there with a nasty attitude. Refusing to give us an English remote, demanding that we figure it out, refusing to show us how to switch out of K-pop. And just down right racist, nasty and rude.

I would highly recommend - first I have to thank the previous reviewers who brought me to using Gavin and now I'm happy to add to the list. I have a home office and I'm an American citizen so things were a bit more complicated. Thanks for everything & I'll 'see' you next year.

My Father is Ben Rise but he came down to my house in St. Pete last week and fixed my air conditioner that has been broke for 2 years now. It's incredible to finally have proper air con again! Thanks Dad

My friends and I stayed in a triple share last weekend to go see Les Mis and it was perfect. It was about a 5 minute walk to Her Majesty's Theatre, 5 minutes to China town and shops everywhere. The room was perfect for us and the staff was very friendly. For location, you can't beat it.

I have to thank all of the previous reviews as that was the reason I chose Beach House Florist. I'm living in Australia and it was difficult to find a good local florist to deliver flowers to my Mom. I had a wonderful experience with them from the beginning - from the phone call trying to decide what to send (I know nothing about Flowers) to the actual delivery to my parents front door step. The flowers were gorgeous, full, healthy, happy - exactly what I had asked for. I will certainly be using them again and would highly recommend them for any occasion.
