Has Google introduced new authorship snippets already?
I've managed to get a couple of different people's Google profiles to come up in the auto suggestion box today. Oddly if you click the suggestion  there is a message saying 'The search option you have selected is currently unavailable' above some standard search results for the term. Has anyone else seen this? +Matthew White +Moz

English is easy!

Homographs are words of like spelling but with more than one meaning. A homograph that is also pronounced differently is a heteronym.

This is an interesting development. Providing SSL providers are strict about issuing certificates it will make it much harder to set up temporary sites that rank through spammy tactics. 
 
Keeping users' data safe is important, and one of the thoughts behind adding HTTPS as a ranking signal in Google's web-search. HTTPS protects the connection to the website through authentication and encryption.  Find out more in our blog post below.

This is what happens when a language borrows from so many other languages as English does.

Story
Tagline
IT worker, political activist, regular cyclist, not always in that order.
Introduction

Currently I am the Senior Developer at Green Media, overseeing various ecommerce and online marketing operations, and the Chair of Newcastle upon Tyne Liberal Democrats, ensuring they have candidates and campaigns for the local elections.

I’m also on the committee of Heaton History Group. When not working, campaigning or learning about local history I can often be found cycling around Northumberland, sometimes lost, often slowly.

Before all that I worked at Marks and Spencer in the IT department and am a graduate of Northumbria University.
