With Google now rendering content, are the JavaScript hacks by call tracking companies no use anymore?

Will a lot of businesses be starting to send mixed signals?

+Tim Capper A thorough article. I never thought of the idea of completely switching to a tracking number, as long as you can own it.

Another option I am considering is the use of tracking numbers in images, but then, where do I put the real number?

Does anyone have any other tips on basic things to do to improve the GA data?

Is this a new type of jump to link?

I'm probably months behind again, but this is the first time I've seen jump to links at the bottom of the snippet.

Jump to links are links to a position on the same page. This is done via named anchor tags and hash (#) based links.

The page follows the usual pattern to get the links by providing an index of the anchored links at the top of the page and have the destinations match up with headings.

I wonder if having answer based headings helps them work?

Shopping (eCommerce)  - 
 
Are you making the most out of your product descriptions?

Many eCommerce website either have no description or the just steal them from the manufacturer. To win the customers you need to stand out and engage your potential customers. This also greatly increases your chances of ranking in Google.
But there’s a gaping hole in the marketing literature and blogs. I see very little being published on the subject of product descriptions.

This is a simple and free way to discover how to match up your content with what people are looking for.

I periodically review and tweak my content against signals like this as well as terms it is already ranking for (via Google Webmaster Tools).

I've got a client who moved, and now may be moving back to the original address. And I had just completed updating all citations with the new address and phone number.

Is there anything special I should do, or is it just a case of going back through them all?

The old Google Webmaster Tools API is going to expire tomorrow (20th), and the new one does not support exporting of Search Queries yet.

This may be your last chance to do bulk export of all your data.

After the 21st April Google will be downgrading non mobile friendly website in mobile based searches.

Check your analytics and you may find that over 20% of your visitors are on mobiles, and maybe higher for local businesses.

So losing mobile ranking may have a big impact.

Google Webmaster Tools now has a report on mobile issues. It will tell you if you have problems that may affect your ranking as well as explain how to fix them.

So it's time to check if people can easily use your website on their mobiles.

Interesting insights into how Bing decides what elements show up in their search results.
 
Deconstructing Bing Search

From a programming point of view Bing started out ahead of Google. It has always been hampered by limited data sets which outside the US have not helped with the quality of the search experience. 

In this fantastic interview +Eric Enge, CEO of +Stone Temple Consulting does a brilliant job in unpacking the mechanics of search at the search query level. Notice the 'predictive' element that comes into play even before a query is typed in and then the minding of explicit and implicit intent followed by personalized and location signals to fine-tune the results. 

If you consider how complex are our human interactions it is nothing less than a miracle that we actually get to interact like this with search. It also shows you just what signals ore relevance work when it comes to surfacing content in response to a search query.

I've been sending my clients to Jarka for quite some time now, and they have always been happy with the results. Her services are perfect for what a typical local business needs in a website. I suggest you hire her before she realises that she should charge more.

A freindly cafe without the production line feel of the others on the Parade. Comfortable for a client meeting or a quiet drink with a book. I'm currently trying out their interesting selection of teas. Lemongrass Ginger today.

Open again after a long time closed. At first they tried to be too posh but have backed off and returned the pool table. They also have a ping pong table out back which is a good exercise while drinking.

This is my favorite restaurant on the Parade. The owner is always there, smiling and friendly. I like to go for lunch and sit outside doing some work and watching people go by.
