Here's an example of how query data could influence search rankings. It was noted by +Will Critchlow that Apple is already ranking #1 for "watch". On the surface it seems like this may have happened really quickly, and Will is right to question if it's what searches want ranking #1. But in fact [apple watch] gets FIVE times the amount of searches as just "watch" - and I believe Google is ranking Apple #1 for watch because of this. Google can associate "Apple" the brand with "watch" the product category pretty confidently What do you think?

There’s a ton of useful data that’s already collected in tables around the web,  and you can now access and add it to your work from right inside Docs and Slides. In the Tools menu, select Research, click on Tables, and search away.

Bill and Ammon (+Bill Slawski  and +Ammon Johns   ) reprise their role as the "Wyld Stallyns" of SEO, with bodacious babe +Kristin Drysdale helping wrangle comments, and stop them chasing squirrels.  (okay, a more realistic goal: prevent them chasing too many squirrels).  +Terry Van Horne joins us to release more squirrels when Kristin isn't looking.

(No squirrels are harmed in the making of this program)


About Bill and Ammon's Bogus Hangout
This is not a polished, planned and scripted event.  This is a casual hangout with old friends and new, shared with all.  Somewhere around the halfway point, we'll post the link for anyone who wishes to come and join us (space permitting) allowing us to meet even more old and new friends.

The idea of pre-planning, a set topic, or even simply knowing who will be on the show this week?  All totally bogus.

Free Air-Guitars to all attendees (exact model and colour may vary with imagination)

Our general style is to issue uninvited invitations, naming folks we think might like a chat, without asking first if they are available (or willing). 

We're doing something a little different again this week though.  You know how we love to do that.  We are inviting +Andrey Lipattsev and +John Mueller and then doing our best to not talk about Google. :) 

We're not asking Andrey and John to join us as 'representatives' of Google.  We prefer getting to know them as people - the people Google found brilliant enough to hire when they didn't work for Google.  If that doesn't quite make sense to you right now, hopefully it will once you join us for this conversation between people.

As ever, we'll open up the invitations to all for any empty seats once the hangout has begun.  Feel free to jump in and not only join the conversation, but help steer it.

We have no idea yet who will actually turn up, and that's how we like it.  
Excellent!

SEO Salary & Job Growth Research

The folks from +Conductor and Blue Nile Research teamed up for a study that looked at thousands of job listings across the web. Their analysis is here: http://ww2.conductor.com/rs/conductor2/images/SEO%20Jobs%20and%20Salary%20Data%202015%20Conductor.pdf but long story short - SEO is more in-demand and better-paid than ever (though, to be honest, some of the lower ranges still seem smaller than what I've seen in the market).
