I can totally believe this.
 
Google handles over 10 billion voice queries per month!
One of the statistics that everyone is talking about from the Google I/O keynote is that Sundar Pichai, Google's CEO, said that 20% of mobile queries on Google are voice triggered. Here is a tweet

Another great White Board Friday from Moz.
Are you guilty of living in the past? Using methods that were once tried-and-true can be alluring, but it can also prove dangerous to your search strategy. In today's Whiteboard Friday, Rand spells out eight old school SEO practices that you should ditch in favor of more effective and modern alternatives.

Great tips for finding duplicate NAP listings. Thanks, #moz !
Citation consistency got you down? It's one of the most important local search ranking factors, but it can be an overwhelming task to find inconsistencies, and it's often easy to create accidental duplicate listings. In today's guest Whiteboard Friday, Darren Shaw, founder of Whitespark and recent speaker at MozCon Local, outlines a foolproof way to discover all your NAP variations to prepare for proper citation building.

I've seen a number of snippets in search results that are longer than the usually visible 153 or so characters. If this is a Google experiment, I hope it sticks. +Barry Schwartz

Love the summary of the Google Webmaster Guidelines changes from SE Roundtable. 
Patrick Sexton asked if he can publish the new changes and additions made to the Google Webmaster Guidelines update I mentioned this morning. So here is his take on that. But first, Patrick Se

Rand on Whiteboard Friday talks about how to make good presentations. Be specific, respectable, and actionable:
"You used to do X, but after I share Y, you'll switch to doing Z and get better results. You'll use Y to do Z and get better results than what you were getting with X."

Still testing the new title and meta description lengths in the SERPs, but very happy to see this.
If you haven’t given your title and description meta tags some love lately, it might be a good thing you procrastinated… there are new title and description lengths in the Google Search Results. Google has increased the width of the search results for nearly all users (although they could roll it back at any time). …

I dropped in on a Saturday to get my flat tire fixed, and they did it within an hour while I waited. The waiting room was comfortable and had lots of interesting books and magazines. I particularly enjoyed the Seattle history books and photos on the wall.

What an experience. This restaurant serves gourmet meals, with great service in a genuine western saloon hall built in 1803. It's a half hour drive from Silver City. Reservations are essential.

Nice little urban park with swings and jungle gyms for the kiddies and tennis courts for the adults. The jogging circle is always popular. In the summer, the free outdoor concerts are a treasure. Great place to take the kids or the dogs for a quick bit of exercise.

Great breakfast with luxurious, large rooms in an historic building that is tastefully modernized and within blocks of the art galleries, coffee shops, and main drag of Silver City. The owner, Sandy, is very knowledgeable about local events and places to go.

Best pizza in Burien, IMHO. Very reasonable price for an all-you-can-eat pizza and salad buffet. If you are a vegetarian, just ask for a veggie pizza and they'll cook one up for the buffet. The large selection of draft beers is always very good. In the summer, the patio is a real treat.

Classy food and beer restaurant that is always busy. Nice menu choices. The cook is always willing to adjust the ingredients for allergies and vegetarians. The burgers are divine. The booths are dark wood and comfortable and the long bar accommodates many drinkers. Parking can be a hassle, but well worth it.
