Google showing ME the wrong domain.

Years ago I switched domains and set up 301 redirects. All seemed fine.

But recently I noticed that Google is now serving me the old domain. But only when I'm logged in as me. If I'm in another account or anonymous, I get the right domain.

Why am I getting this weird personalisation?

Back to normal. So I suspect it was something in the account search history related to my domain, and it took a while for the personalisation to update after I deleted those searches.

A quick catch up on my road trip. Lots of top down driving, which is amazing considering the area is flooded.

Looks like I'm forced to progress. Took me 5 minutes to work out how to do this post correctly.

Has anyone worked out how to move a Google My Business Page from one manager to another?

I tried adding it to a manager account but it just says I already have it!

And I can't see any way to add a manager as a user.

How do entities relate to each other across the web?

I'm trying to get my head around making sure my markup connects my entities correctly with the rest of the domain and the web. I just can't quite get a clear answer in my head.

Does itemid (@id) work across URLs and domains to merge markup of the same entity? As if they are one? Does it work across microdata/json-ld?

If you are duplicating markup, e.g. a review on two different pages, would you use itemid or another method to indicate they are the same thing?

If you have a category page that summarises products, or blogs, would just a url in each item be suffice to say that the item relates to the main entity of another page? Or maybe use mainEntityOfPage that references the URL for the product/post?

What do the big players like Google support.

Is there any way to test this sort of thing?

A client of mine has recently asked me to remove their breadcrumb markup from the site. And for a good reason.

It seems that breadcrumb rich snippets cause the https:// to be dropped from the displayed URL, even when the site is secure.

My client rightly feels that having that secure signal is more important than having a neater looking URL. I agree.

What do you think?

Some takeaways on Google's new Critic review examples

sameAs is used in several entities as a way to associate them with more official URLs about them. It is often required.

Publisher relates to the original place the review was published. I often see this set to the organisation of the website, which can often be wrong. It is required for critic reviews.

If you use a 5 point scale they no longer require best/worst to be marked up.

You can use none numeric gradings. Like B+. Specifications are mixed on that.

inLanguage is included in the review.

The review must be more than 300 words, and be visible on the url the markup references.

And the final sentence indicates you can't use reviews gathered by other site, which I believe is a change in policy:

"Only include reviews that have been directly produced by your site, not reviews from third- party sites or syndicated reviews."
