If a human at Google has flagged your site as violating its search quality guidelines, you'll be told. The company recently said it reports practically 100% of such cases. More below, as well as the difference between a "manual action" and an "algorithmic" one. Algorithmic actions, or penalties, aren't disclosed.

We’ve made an update to Google Goggles for Android. In particular, it's now easier for you to use the app to shop and discover products that are right for you. Here’s a quick summary of today’s changes:

1. Improved recognition of products. We’ve increased our coverage of products and barcodes that Goggles recognizes, with a focus on international products and barcodes. Give it a whirl while you’re traveling. 
2. Browse similar products. Have you ever struggled to replace a favorite dress? Goggles can help you find products that are similar to something you’ve owned or seen before. When you take a picture of an item and Goggles can’t find an exact match, you’ll have the option to browse products by category that look similar to your image. Refine by category, brands or gender, or long press an item to explore products that are similar to that selection.
3. “Search from camera” is now easier. Turn on Goggles with one click within your Android Camera app. As you go about your life taking photos, Google will provide you with relevant information on the things you’ve photographed. It’s a great way to learn more about what you see around you, especially when traveling.

Last but not least, when you scan a barcode or QR code that takes you to a webpage, Goggles will now show you a preview of the page, so you know where you’re going right away.

Google Goggles 1.9 is available for all Android devices. Scan the QR code below to download, or visit Google Play: http://goo.gl/VzVxh. And tell us what you think on +Android.

Google lets the world peek into its data centers

If you've ever wondered what the immense data centers that house all the searches, Youtube videos and ads that you love look like then you're in luck. Google has let +Wired Magazine  take a glimpse at the treasure trove of data it has been keeping under lock and key since the company's inception. With servers hosting much of the world's information, a focus on data security at Google is understandable and necessary.

But now for the first time ever you can see how the geeky kingdom is organised. Rainbows of cables, multi-coloured pipes criss-crossing the ceiling, googly bicycles to get around on and hundreds of thousands of servers are just some of the nerdy treasures to be found in the pictures that have been released. After viewing I think you'll agree that even our data centers are "Googley."
