The story is so badly written that it's impossible to tell if it's holographic or not, but I suspect not.

Google Officially Adds Mobile Friendliness As Ranking Factor
We all knew this was coming, the question was when? As of April the 21st of 2015 Google will roll out its new mobile-friendly ranking system, giving webmasters and SEO's more time to comply.

Google has also made the ability to identify mobile-usability issues easier with their mobile friendly test: http://goo.gl/9mBbHd , along with the previously available mobile-usability reports in Webmaster Tools.

Sites that fail to conform are likely to lose visibility to other more mobile compliant websites, as search engines like Google embrace the now heavily mobile world.

The reports of Google+'s death have been greatly exaggerated (again)

Google+ Chief Architect +Yonatan Zunger says there'll be "no big user-facing changes" connected to the reorganization of G+, Photos, and Hangouts that we've been hearing about over the past several days. ¹

His full comment: ²

A lot of misunderstanding and speculation. :) The internal org was renamed "Photos and Streams," because Sundar likes org names that match what the teams do. And since our org includes Photos, Google+, Blogger, and News, there you have photos, plus several streams of content.

No big user-facing changes tied to this at all.

So stand down, gravediggers. This "ghost town" is still alive and kickin', and we ghosts aren't goin' anywhere anytime soon.

Bragging rights
I can debug without a debugger. Developed one of the first PC antiviruses (Checkup). Developed BBSX, a popular BBS back in the day. Developed Space Ace, the first hard disk cleaner (and still the only "safe as milk" HD cleaner). Ghost-wrote the virus section of John Dvorak's first book. Wrote the first book from a major imprint (McGraw-Hill) on computer viruses. Wrote several top-selling titles about Microsoft Windows for DK Publishing. Was the first computer reporter for KYW Newsradio, and the first host of PC TALK on CBS Radio. My InfoWeek coverage of MSFT was entered into evidence in the historic U.S. v. MSFT antitrust case. Nominated for several Computer Press Association awards. Won the CMP Excellence in Editorial award for Best Cover Story. Runner-up for Best Weekend Talk Radio Show in the AIR awards. Consulted to leading IT titans on lots of other stuff that I can't share or I would have to kill you. Winner of 2013 Ragan's PR Daily Awards for (1) Best Content Marketing, (2) Best Brand Journalism, (3) Best News Release. See my LinkedIn profile for other awards and honors.
