Travel in Google Maps via the Loch Ness Monster!
There is a new easter egg on Google Maps, one that gives you travel and transit directions by Loch Ness Monster. If you get directions from Fort Augustus to Urquhart Castle when in Google Maps, Google will show the option of traveling via Loch Ness Monster. You can try it yourself by clicking here or […]

Google has been rethinking self-driving cars from the ground up. Today we unveiled a prototype self-driving car built by Google. Watch the video from the page below to see how it works!

 I think this car will surely help your daughter. The contact lens of Google will also help her. :)

Do you like the internet? Tell the FCC to protect it!

The FCC has proposed rules that would allow paid "fast lanes" on the internet. Many people (including me) not to mention hundreds of tech companies like Amazon, Twitter, Facebook, Google, and Microsoft, Yahoo--plus tons of startups--worry that the FCC's proposed rules will break the internet in very bad ways.

So here's where the internet needs you. If you feel strongly that the the internet need protection from paid fast lanes, join me in telling the FCC to protect the internet. It's easy to do! Here's how: 

1. Go to and look for docket number 14-28 ("Protecting and Promoting the Open Internet") and click on 14-28.

2. Enter your name, address, and your comments. Hit the submit button and confirm your comment on the next page. That's it!

For example, I'll be writing that "the FCC should protect net neutrality by reclassifying broadband providers as common carriers under Title II."

But it literally takes under a minute to give your opinion to the FCC. Write whatever you feel, but if you like the internet and want it protected, you need to tell the FCC now. Right now, there's 21,549 comments on the FCC's proposed rules. I think there should be at least a hundred thousand comments from people on the web telling the FCC not to allow paid fast lanes on the net. Please tell the FCC what you think!

I usually don't talk about SEO much here, but this tip is so easy and handy that I wanted to remind people about it. The blog post below covers some very easy markup to indicate your logo. We use that markup as a signal when we consider which picture to show in the Knowledge Graph for organizations.

I'm going to be on leave for a few months. See my blog post for more details. The two things to know:
- I won't be checking work email while I'm gone.
- The webspam team at Google is in very good hands. They're all better at spamfighting than I am. :)
I wanted to let folks know that I'm about to take a few months of leave. When I joined Google, my wife and I agreed that I would work for 4-5 years, and then she'd get to see more of me. I talked a...

Very cool stuff.
Starting to test Google Domains

It's 2014 and it seems obvious, but across laptops, tablets and mobile devices, a website is one of the first places people go to find information about a business. But amazingly, our research shows that 55% of small businesses still don't have one. 

So as we explore ways to help small businesses succeed online (through tools like Google My Business [] ), we thought it made sense to look more closely at the starting point of every business’s online presence - a website. And that starts with a domain name.

We’re beginning to invite a small number of people to kick the tires on Google Domains [], a domain registration service we’re in the process of building. Businesses will be able to search, find, purchase and transfer the best domain for their business - whether it’s .com, .biz, .org, or any of the wide range of new domains that are being released to the Web. 
Google Domains isn’t fully-featured yet, but we’re giving a small group of people the ability to buy and transfer domains through it and send feedback on their experience. (You currently need an invitation code to do so, sorry!) We want input on all the ways we can help make finding, buying, transferring and managing a domain a simple and transparent experience. We also want to make sure our customer support and infrastructure works flawlessly, and that we have the right additional services (like mobile website creation tools and hosting services from a range of providers, as well as domain management support). We're working with some of the top website building providers like +Shopify, +Squarespace, +Weebly, and  to help make that happen.

While we’re still building out all of the features, our goal is to make Google Domains more widely available soon. You can check out the first cut of what we’re working on at

May 1st is the perfect time to try something new for 30 days! It can be as fun as taking a picture every day or it can be something deep that you've always wanted to try.

I'm the head of the webspam team at Google. That means that if you type your name into Google and get porn back, it's my fault. Unless you're a porn star, in which case porn is a completely reasonable response.

I stayed here for the Folsom Triathlon. The hotel is older, but the staff were very nice--they called the room to check whether everything was fine with the room. They also let me check out an hour late so I could clean up after the triathlon. The location is very convenient for Nimbus Dam Recreation Area.

The lady who runs this bagel shop is fast and competent. If you come in regularly, she'll remember your order and your name. A nice place to grab bagels on the weekend.

Showed up just as they were closing one day and Henry let me in and helped me find the right tool. Good folks here.

Very good food. Pretty fast for an upscale restaurant. Can get crowded/loud, so consider doing takeout. Especially good: BBQ ribs, the French dip sandwich.

A nice cafe with a friendly owner. I got a muffin and a water and camped. I heard Nina greeting people--she clearly knows many of her visitors. Free wifi and when I visited on Sunday, several different newspapers (including the Wall St Journal) set out for free browsing.
