Some interesting and important stuff regarding Australian domains and how the proposed new direct .au regisrations will cost you. I'm going to vote against it.

I'm seeing an increase in Google mobile bot activity. Maybe they are getting ready for mobile first.

I suppose for some it is a start but it is insignificant to what it once was. I spike traffic every time I send out a news letter which is not unusual What I look for is the steady climb in visits and I have not seen any change in that. My website refferels use to be 7 to 8 per week but in today market I rarely see any these days. I don't expect to see any improvement for us small guys at all or very little.

One ugly snippet. The text was taken from alt attributes near the top of the content. And yes, the alt text included the gibberish number (file name) and the word 'thumb' to indicate the image was a thumbnail.

The Google Search Consoles Duplicate Report does not check the canonical tag.

My duplicate test took about 3 weeks before canonicalised duplicate pages were reported.

That report causes unnecessary panic in people. At least now I can say with more certainty that they can ignore it if the reported pages are canonicalized.
This is a simple test to see if the duplicate title tags and duplicate meta descriptions report takes into account the canonical tag.

I hear they are removing the keyword report. Good move as it's another one that causes people to panic.

Website Design  - 
The rules behind using stock images can be confusing. Here are some interesting insights related to Canva and their licensing.
Canva is, without a doubt, one of the best, free online image creation sites. They have tons of stock photos, shapes, beautiful fonts, and you can create very modern graphics for your site without any design experience. But do you fully understand their terms for commercial projects? Many people don't, and I guarantee there are some using Canva images illegally without realizing it. I know of a blogger who was sued for $8,000 over improper use of...
