We've been doing lots of work to clean up the visual design of our search results, in particular creating a better mobile experience and a more consistent design across devices. As a part of this, we're simplifying the way authorship is shown in mobile and desktop search results, removing the profile photo and circle count. (Our experiments indicate that click-through behavior on this new less-cluttered design is similar to the previous one.)

For more information on using authorship on pages of your website, check out https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/1408986

Few topics confuse and scare webmasters more than site moves. I know that from personal experience, and I've seen questions, blog posts, how-to guides, and more all trying to demystify the process. Well, mystery no more, dear friends.

We've just massively updated our help documentation about planning and implementing the best site move possible.

Not just that. A related type of site moves is changing the configuration of your multiscreen site. The most common question we've seen is how to move from separate URLs to a single site using responsive web design. We got that covered too!

Faulty redirects for smartphone users make for a horrible user experience and we'd like to spare our searchers, who are about to become your visitors, the agony.

Starting today for English searches in the US, we may note to searchers the fact that the site may redirect them to the homepage instead of showing them the page they requested.

Luckily the issue is simple to diagnose and fix. Full details at:

Interesting, although I can't say I understood even half of it.

if I had to boil down SEO into 3 rules, these would be it: 

1.) make sure everything is crawlable and accessible and coded well.
2.) For content, if it doesn't add value to the user don't include it.
3.) for links: get only links that people actually click on.

Today's video is about what happens if there are two links on the same page to the same URL.

Mmm...Matt said it right...Some times we major on the minor things when we could look at the bigger picture and make things better for our site and overall user experience.

My new blogpost with speculations about doorway schemes that redirect back to search results.

Dumping unneeded traffic or second level of search engine optimization and traffic re-targeting?

We’ve found a new way to reduce energy consumption in our data centers: machine learning. Learn more about how we’re improving data center energy efficiency using technology similar to what’s used for speech recognition. goo.gl/ZJcZ0q

We just launched an update to Webmaster Tools that helps webmasters debug how pages could be rendered by Googlebot.

Main takeaway from me: watch what you block with your robots.txt

"The NSA wasn’t, and isn’t, the great predator of the internet, it’s just the biggest scavenger around. It isn’t doing so well because they are all powerful math wizards of doom. The NSA is doing so well because software is bullshit."

The real state of computer security is abysmal, and if you ever wanted to know more about why, Quinn Norton gives the long but detailed truth about it.

Incidentally, if this sort of thing is your passion, if you're experienced in computer security and want to help make some of the world's biggest targets better-defended: We're hiring.
