Do you use Scema.org markup? +SearchmetricsDE found that only 0.3 percent of domains are using the markup code on their websites.
More than one-third of Google’s search results incorporate Schema.org rich snippets, but only a tiny fraction of websites are actually using the markup code. That’s according to a new Searchmetrics study out today that examined Google’s U.S. search results in March “for tens of thousands of keywords and over half a million web domains.” The […]

So after digging into the recent changes of what's displayed on Google+ profiles, this is a summary of what I've discovered, including links to some history of how Google+ has changed what they've tracked over the years. Thanks to +CircleCount and +Mark Traphagen for some of their thoughts and data on this.
On March 25, many Google+ brand accounts noticed a big dip in followers displayed on profile pages. In fact, Marketing Land decreased by 20%, even Search Engine Land decreased by 40%. Initially some have thought that this was a “spring cleaning” of spammy Google+ accounts following profiles pages; however, it’s really pulling out the followers […]

Thanks for the mention here and in your great article +Monica Wright!

A quick addition: Right now the "plusone" count is still available through the API and we are also tracking this number (https://plus.google.com/+CircleCount/posts/JjE5cxkqe6k) since no one knows, maybe it will get back again somewhere ;)

Love this.
Bob Ross was a consummate teacher. He guided fans along as he painted "happy trees," "almighty mountains" and "fluffy clouds" over the course of his 11-year television career on his PBS show, “The ...

+Rob Pitt tools that use keyword ids still work and that's most tools. It's just the data that appears in Google Analytics that is (not provided). You can still get it in AdWords. It's the search query data that is affected. You can see more about how it will affect tools here: http://searchengineland.com/marin-google-applies-provided-ppc-paid-search-management-platforms-will-still-work-188729

Anyone else see a sharp decrease in follower G+ counts at about the same time that Views were introduced? I've seen this number fluctuate, but I don't recall it ever taking this long, and the decrease is significant. 

Tagging a few friends here: +Mark Traphagen +Ronnie Bincer +CircleCount 

Thanks!

As +Mark Traphagen wrote, there was a decrease on many profiles in March.

See, I like estimated reading times, especially for long pieces. Just like I like to know how many slides in a slideshow, or how far along I am in a movie or book. By +Arienne Holland.
How much time does the average adult in the United States spend with digital media every day? According to an August 2013 estimate by eMarketer: 5 hours and 16 minutes. Calculated another way, that’s 316 minutes per day. How many of those 316 minutes do they spend reading your content? Estimated Online Reading Time Basic website analytics […]

I feel like there isn't much context to this number, not yet anyway.
 
New feature/data in Google+.... View Counts!

In classic Google manner (I kid you Google, I kid!) they are aggregate counts of "you are not really sure what they are".  And come with an additional caveat "values are approximate". How cute is that? :)

Still. Something.

21 million views of my profile and content.

Would be nice to have: Views for individual pieces of content and, since most people are logged in if they are here, Count of Unique People (for the whole thing plus individual content).

I'm sure the G+ team is working on lots more metrics not just to match LinkedIn and FB, but to give us even more amazing things. Can't wait.

Now, which one of you can tell me why I'm not richer and more famous after these 21 million views? Is that not how social is supposed to work? :)
