This is very interesting. Mobile Rich Cards for recipes and a new report in the Search Console.

I can see it's going to be a challenge keeping up with all the structured data, rich snippets/cards and knowledge graph options.

By Lauren Hermon It wasn’t until a trio of mates from Adelaide found themselves in France when they thought it would be cool to help other travellers explore the globe. Six months after their initial idea, Lucas Lovell, Mitch Pascoe and Charles Inglis were back in Adelaide finishing their university degrees when they decided …

+Jennifer Slegg just posted about Google changing their SERP title length from 512px to 600px.

For those that like to play at home, I have already updated my SERP emulator to use the new 600px limit:

If you haven’t given your title and description meta tags some love lately, it might be a good thing you procrastinated… there are new title and description lengths in the Google Search Results. Google has increased the width of the search results for nearly all users (although they could roll it back at any time). …

A face lift and maybe more for the Structured Data Testing Tool
 
+Google Webmasters Structured Data Testing Tool gets new design, moves to new address #structureddata #semanticweb   #SEO . Wonder why they double index it ;) Perhaps they forgot to tag it semantically :0 (which they did, not a bit of structured data on the page, actually not even a rel=canonical) +John Mueller BTW, isn't the color a bit Bingish?

Today's windows 10 update just trashed my computer by breaking the start menu and all direct access to applications. It took me several hours to get it to revert back to before the update.

Windows 10 does not let you stop updates, and it's already wanting to re-apply them!

If I wake up any my computer is trashed again, I'm taking my big stick and walking down the the Microsoft offices down the street.

So my desktop seemed to survive. Today, my Surface updated and broke. No restore point on that machine. It may need a full reset :-(
