Answers are in! What has +Bruce Clay seen in two decades of #SEO ? Everything. Reddit AMA with the godfather of SEO is still going on, which means there's still time to ask him anything. An offer you can't refuse. http://bit.ly/1K334Fx
Google has added search results to the bottom of the local knowledge panel that appears when someone clicks on a result in the list of local listings in the regular search results. This change makes the local knowledge panel much longer but also puts greater emphasis on those search results, particularly for those businesses that …
If you've been hungry for even more information about your website's performance in search, if you're happy to whip up some code, and yearning to play with another API, we hope you'll savor the new Search Analytics API for Search Console. There are lots of neat things that could be done with it & we're keen to see how you end up using it. Take a look, grab an editor, fill up a beverage of your choice, and give it a shot!
Staying on top of your online presence can mean the difference between business as usual and new customers at your door. In fact, a recent study showed that consumers are nearly twice as likely to find a business reputable if it has more information on Google, such as opening hours and photos. But when companies don’t keep their online information up to date, it can create an unpleasant experience for people searching the web for information -- like if a customer arrives at a local business only to find that the address or operating hours have changed.
We’re always trying to make it easier for customers to connect with businesses on Google. That’s why if you’re a business owner and you haven’t logged into your Google My Business account in over a year, you may receive an email from us soon asking you to sign in and confirm your business information. Just follow the steps in the email by simply logging into your Google My Business dashboard, then checking to make sure your information is up to date and submitting any changes if necessary. If your account remains inactive after receiving a notice from us, then it could run the risk of being de-verified, or in rare cases, removed from Google Maps.
We recommend that all Google My Business users check on your business information by logging into your account at least once every six months -- doing this only takes a few seconds. It ensures that we’ve got the right information, and that customers can continue connecting with your business on Google Search and Maps. To get going, visit www.google.com/business.

We're honored to once again rank among the country's fastest-growing private companies on +Inc. magazine's list. While success is measured by many different metrics, steady growth is an important one.
Bruce Clay said, “It’s rewarding to rank for the ninth consecutive year because it reveals not only our sustainable growth, but also our commitment to serve as a consistent, reliable, and expert resource for SEO, SEM and digital marketing.”
This is a significant change in the SERPs. On the upside, organic results get more screen space. But for local businesses, it's a game changer because you have to appear in the top 3 to be visible now.
In his seo training course, my boss +Bruce Clay talks about optimizing your site to be "least imperfect". +Ian Lurie captures that sentiment brilliantly in this article. Required reading for #seo here.
Google is taking the first step to reduce the number of app interstitials presented to mobile users when visiting a website. Starting August 14th, Google will begin treating webpages that serve users with a full page app interstitial as a mobile usability error in Google Search Console. August 14 Having a full-page interstitial popup on …
I feel like an image at the front defining interstitials would be useful because though I've seen them plenty of times I had no idea what that term meant when I saw it. Glad Google is taking a stand on this sort of thing though.
