An update on our smartphone User-agent

starting April 18th, we're gonna use a new smartphone UA to crawl smartphone content:

Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 6.0.1; Nexus 5X Build/MMB29P) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/41.0.2272.96 Mobile Safari/537.36 (compatible; Googlebot/2.1; +http://www.google.com/bot.html)

 
FYI: We're going to update the smartphone user-agent of Googlebot.

I was very happy to see the Google Dance return last week. So many search marketers never get to see Google in person, even though it dominates so much of what they do. It was a real treat for them, plus it was great that a special meeting was held to gather feedback from SEOs. Thanks especially to webmaster trends analyst +Gary Illyes and search quality analyst +Nathan Johns for making it happen.
Over 500 search marketers gathered at Google last week for a revival of its annual Google Dance celebration offering food, drinks, fun and knowledge.

A new year’s refresh of Android App-Indexing Crawl Errors data in Search Console
We’re updating and simplifying the app crawl error types we show in Search Console. You’ll now see three error types in the App Crawl Status report: Package not found (unchanged), URI unsupported (unchanged), Removed from index (new).
We’ve reset the data in the report, so you’ll see updated stats for these three error types since December 11. 

All about the new error type 
These are app pages that don’t meet our technical guidelines — for example, users get redirected to the home page or the app crashes when the user attempts to open the deep link. 
To fix this, check the example URIs both in Fetch as Google and on an actual device, and make sure your app doesn't crash on opening, the deep pages don't redirect to the homepage, and the content is equivalent. Once you fix the issues and we recrawl your app pages, these deep links from Google search to your app will be reexamined If you’ve got more questions, drop by the help forum:

Les developpeurs d'applications peuvent maintenant voir des donnees concernant les impressions et les clics du bouton "installer" pour leur app!

A essayer d'urgence sur Search Console, dans le rapport Search Analytics!

New in Google Search Console we are happy to announce that we have just launched a new filter in the Search Analytics Report called Search Appearance .

Currently, you can use that filter to see data about your 'install app' button in Google mobile search results. Thanks to this, you can now see which queries your users typed to see the install button for your app, and also filter by country to see where most of your app users come from.

Let us know what you think of it in the comments :)

Note: this feature doesn't show how many users actually completed the download process once in the play store

You've asked for it, we've made it!

New in Search Analytics: URLs with Dynamic date range

How does it work?
If you save / share / copy the URL of a report that gives you the "last 7 days" of traffic on your website, it will now respect the real last 7 days every time you paste that URL or click on it, instead of remembering the date when you actually saved / shared / copied that URL.

ex: if I save a URL I created on January 25th, with a "last 7 days" view, and click on it today, it will give me a report on the last 7 days of traffic on my website, relative to today, rather than to January 25th.

Hope you like it, and if you have any feedback, please use the comments!

Planning on moving to HTTPS? Here are 13 FAQs! What's missing? Let me know in the comments and I'll expand this over time, perhaps it's even worth a blog post or help center article. Note that these are specific to moving an existing site from HTTP to HTTPS on the same hostname. Also remember to check out our help center at https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/6073543

# Do I need to set something in Search Console? No, just add the HTTPS site there. The change-of-address setting doesn't apply for HTTP -> HTTPS moves.

# How can we do an A/B test? Don't cloak to Googlebot specifically, use 302 redirects + rel=canonical to HTTP if you want to test HTTPS but not have it indexed. Don't block via robots.txt . More about A/B testing at https://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.ch/2012/08/website-testing-google-search.html (302 redirects aren't cached.)

# Will the rel=canonical guarantee that the HTTP URL is indexed? No, but it's a very strong signal when picking the indexed URL.

# What's the next step after testing? Follow our site-move documentation ( https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/6033049 ). Use 301 redirects from HTTP to HTTPS, confirm the new version by adding a rel=canonical on the HTTPS page, pointing to itself, and submit sitemaps including both HTTP & HTTPS URLs with new change-dates (in the long run, just keep the HTTPS sitemap).

# What about the robots.txt file? The HTTPS site uses the HTTPS robots.txt file. Check that it's reachable or serves a 404 result code, and check that your HTTP URLs aren't blocked by the HTTP robots.txt file.

# Is it OK to have just some pages on HTTPS? Yes, no problem! Start with a part, test it, add more.

# Should I move everything together, or is it fine to do sections? Moving in sections is fine.

# Will I see a drop in search? Fluctuations can happen with any bigger site change. We can't make any guarantees, but our systems are usually good with HTTP -> HTTPS moves.

# Which certificate do I need? For Google Search, any modern certificate that's accepted by modern browsers is acceptable.

# Do I lose "link juice" from the redirects? No, for 301 or 302 redirects from HTTP to HTTPS no PageRank is lost.

# Will we see search keywords in Google Analytics when we're on HTTPS? This won't change with HTTPS, you can see the search queries in Search Console.

# How can I test how many pages were indexed? Verify HTTP / HTTPS separately in Search Console, use Index Status for a broad look, or the sitemaps indexed counts for sitemap URLs.

# How long will a move from HTTP to HTTPS take? There are no fixed crawl frequencies, it depends on the size of your site, and the speed of crawling that's possible. The move takes place on a per-URL basis.


Hope this helps clarify some of the open questions! Let me know if there's anything missing.

Hi Zineb.
I think after Firebase migration there is something not clear going on related to app indexing.
Can you give some hints?

Making the web a better place !
Introduction
Currently working as a Webmaster Trends Analyst for Google in Zurich.

I previously worked in Paris as a traffic acquisition and SEO manager in a start-up, as an SEO and traffic manager for a French car manufacturer and as a web security strategist for another automaker.

I Graduated from the American University of Paris in 2011 with a Master of Arts in Global Communications.  

I ended up working in the SEO fields by accident - a fortunate accident - after enrolling in a webmarketing evening course during my last semester at the university. I literally had a crush on Search Engine marketing and decided to give it some consideration as a professional option. I can now definitely say that I have found my career path and consider myself lucky to have a job I love!

I moved to Paris shortly after my baccalauréat in 2003. I lived there until July 2013 and enjoyed the culture française, in a Moroccan way, with a bit of American habits !

Next professional goal ? working at Google or... working at Google :) 
[edit August 2013] : Contributing to creating / launching a Google product !

I speak French, English and Arabic

Some bonus facts about me :

I'm a very positive person : I love to joke, play tricks on people, have a good laugh with friends and get to meet new ones. 
I try to be in a good mood everyday, I rarely get angry, but when I do (once or twice a year)... Heaven helps you :) 

I'm a real G+ enthusiast and Google lover ! I try to share interesting content related to technology and web 2.0.

Circles you can add me to :
- Googlers
- SEO
- Webmarketing
- Google news
- G+ evangelists
- Tech
- Digital
- Politics
- France (I've lived there for 10 years)
- Morocco (my Home country)
- Zürich

If you're new to Google +, cirlce Google+ Help and Guy Kawasaki

Some useful tips for Google+ beginners :

Here are some quotes from Guy Kawasaki's book What the Plus that really describe what Google+ is about:

- "Twitter is great for geting or sending immediate perceptions such as witnessing news and events"
- "Facebook is the way to learn what's going on in the lives of people you already know"
- "Google+ enables you to pursue your passions with people you don't know. Your 200 friends and family on Facebook may not share your passion for photography, but on Google+ you can have a blast with a community of photographers. In short, Google+ is for passions"
