Algo Impacts / SERP Changes  - 
 
Are you able to confirm what the suspected Google algorithm update focused on at the beginning of this month (around 4th Feb) +John Mueller ? Thanks.

+Ashley Berman Hale My only reason for pulling in John on this was that there was no word from the horses mouth that about a significant update yet many website owners noticing major movement organically.

I was curious as to whether Google could confirm if there was a refresh or update at cause for this. I don't actually worry about when the algo changes happen as it never negatively impacts our clients but if a client does ask me if there was any shake-up at Google, I like to be able to at least have the knowledge to say "Sure, Google confirmed there was an update affecting 1.3% of queries released early Feb" (for example).

Someone sends me a Word .docx and upon launching, Microsoft takes it upon itself to decide that now is the perfect time to "configure Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013" as slow as freakin' possible and completely lock my computer up in the process!

Bunch of w*nkerz.

Hah. Yes, had enough of Microsoft products dictating how and when I work during the day! Every time something grinds to a halt, every single time, it is a Microsoft product. Wish they'd give up.

Google & Bing Tools  - 
 
I wish to raise something for discussion as I have failed to see any definitive answer on this, only opinionated ones to date - hopefully +John Mueller could clarify this one if possible.

If we disavow a root domain like domain:example.com, does this also disavow all sub domains like sub1.example.com, sub53.example.com, sub32523.example.com (for example)?

I know we can safely disavow sub domains individually like domain:sub53.example.com and this will disavow the entirely of that sub domain but unsure about whether Google have confirmed that disavowing the root domain also disavows all sub domains on it as well (which for the record, I don't think is wise functionality of the tool).

There of course, is also discussion on the web about how some widely used blogging platforms such as blogspot.com and wordpress.com would be immune to this system if indeed disavowing a root domain did disavow all sub domains due to the amount of users and legitimate sites hosted at a free hosted blogging platform on  a sub domain. So if that is the case, how do we know which root domains fall into this category?

I've always took the stance that disavowing a root domain would not affect sub domains (like here http://webmasters.stackexchange.com/a/57878/12183) but with so many discussions (but I fail to see any actual proof or confirmation from Google) around the web, it would be great to have a definitive answer from someone that can explain how sub domains are handled in a disavow file specifically.

I welcome any thoughts :)

This has nothing to do with how subdomains are treated in search -- it's only a URL-based matching when it comes to disavow files. If you disavow the higher-level domain, you don't need to disavow the lower-level subdomain too. It won't cause problems if you do both, and perhaps it makes maintenance of your disavow file easier (depends on how you handle that on your side), but you don't really need to do it.

Just had a "Google Partner" contact our agency and start to 'boilerplate' waffle on about "weak web presence", "poor website" and the suchlike without even bothering to research that they're calling a full service digital marketing and creative agency with a number of web properties on the web.

Idiots. They don't even deserve to be a Google Partner! </rant>

Seriously, is there no simple way to host images in a +Google Drive  account without pissing about creating aliases and URL shorteners?

If not, that is one major oversight by Google and forces me to continue using Dropbox that allow you to publicly serve/host URL's to any content stored in your public folders.

Just a static/image would be a big help, so that when I see the drop down list of resorts I know approximately where they are.

When Drake Circus Shopping Centre was opened, I was very disappointed. Structurally the building looked great (although naf from the outside) but I've gone there to shop, not look at the building. Choice of shops was poor and most of them were those that the high street already had. Complete waste of £200M+

Not a fan of this venue, atmosphere can be good on really big line-ups/nights but normally it's rubbish. Over-priced drinks, rubbish drink promotions, some of the door security are idiots. Bar staff are generally pleasant though.

Incorrect business details from an owner verified listing, not only that, but from a marketing company as well. Doesn't bode well for potential customers... That's if they can even find the business.
