Good stuff. I'm especially interested in the ecommerce stuff, like the GTIN being recommended.

Warning for Aussie small business owners - do not believe Australian Business Funding Centre's government grant claims. They are scams.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has issued a Public Warning Notice about the conduct of Australian Business Funding Centre Pty Ltd (also known as Australian Business Financing Centre or ABFC) which operates the website www.australiangovernmentgrants.org.

Google is now reporting when "rich results" happen in the Search Consoles Analytics report.

It's backdated to their last official Update on the 27th April.

From what I can tell, it includes times when rich snippets are included in the displayed result. e.g. product priced, reviews, recipe data etc..

A good report is to filter by rich results then display pages. Then you can see which pages are worthy of rich snippets.

One day Google will realise that a Hotel in Australia is typically just a bar with no accommodation.

It's interesting how a common language has these differences with dialects and cultures.

Do you have any examples where Google gets it wrong like this.

I wonder if Google is making some affiliate income from the CMSs their new site tester tool promotes. I suspect those links should be nofollow!

Rich and structured snippets  - 
 
Rich Snippet Review Stars without any markup

A client of mine has installed a review plugin that rotates individual reviews in the footer of every page. There is no structured markup on the page or dynamically added by the widget.

But we are seeing stars in the search results!

The only clue I have is that the widget provider repeated the reviews on their site, and those pages are marked up with the url pointing to my clients home page.

Anyone know how this can be happening?

SEO - Search Engine Optimization.  - 
 
Many eCommerce website have products that come and go.

This is more significant if they sell second hand products that have a short lifetime value and get replaced with similar products.

Other stores have products that go out of stock for periods, then return.

What's the current best advice for dealing with this churn?

HUGE -> No more "Free" Access for SEOs... Google Restricts Keyword Planner Access to Active AdWords Advertisers
Do you use Google’s Keyword Planner for keyword research for SEO? Unless you are running an active AdWords campaign, you will no longer have access to use Google’s keyword tool at all. Over the weekend, I began hearing reports that Google has turned off access to those that use the tool without also being an …

Sounds like a lot of confusion going on around this. Maybe some backpedaling from AdWords!

I just spotted this new Google Analytics report related to AdWords. SiteLinks.

It splits up traffic related to which AdWords Sitelink caused the visit/click.

I come here to make my own cereals. A good choice, it avoids all the additives, and every time it's a bit different. And I think it's cheaper than the supermarket boxes.
