Bing Showing Authorship Like Google

It seems like Bing is not only showing the knowledge graph like details about people on the right, which they have done for a while. But also they are showing image thumbnails of the author's picture for that specific snippet.

Whoa! This is new. Authorship snippets on Bing. They look the same but it seems like they're getting them via the knowledge graph (aka entities). I'm doing some due diligence and research this morning.

We're working on a spam research project here at SEOmoz with the eventual goal of classifying, identifying and removing/limiting link juice passed from sites/pages we're pretty sure Google would call webspam. A score (or scores) of some kind would (eventually, assuming the project goes well) be included in Mozscape/OSE showing the spamminess of inlinks/outlinks.

We're certainly not going to be as good at it or as scaled as Google (and thus our algorithms will be relatively conservative and focused on only the most obvious and manipulative forms), but it's making for interesting research already.

Some of our team members, though, do have concerns about whether SEOs will be angry that we're "exposing" spam. My feeling is that it's better to have the knowledge out there (and that anything we can catch, Google/Bing can surely better catch and discount) then to keep it hidden. I'm also hopeful this can help a lot of marketers who are trying to decide whether to acquire certain links or who have to dig themselves out of a penalty (or reverse what might have caused it).

Would love your thoughts/feedback! Obviously, this is at the very early stages, but want to make sure we consider all the perspectives.

Should I reply to all incoming tweets? How many followers is a good number to have? How often should I tweet?

Hope this is helpful to small biz owners just getting started with Twitter.

Suspect my marketing friends/peers will disagree with some replies. :-)

Google appears to have quietly put an end to a long-running trial that added a "quick view" option next to mobile search results from select websites. http://selnd.com/1aliIXS

A recent Nielsen survey of 28,000 consumers highlighted that social media is an interesting trend in consumers' purchasing behavior.

How often do you go to a product's Facebook page to leave recommendations/complaints? Let us know in the comments!

Agreed.
 
Bing Improves Search Results UI: So What?

I am a big fan of white space, so it is not surprising that I love the new Bing search UI update. It looks a lot cleaner and I think I even like the white space around the site links (which unlike Google don't have descriptions which might even be better).

This got me to checkout others as well. Turns out Yandex is my favorite...

Google is the one I'm most used to and it is pretty good. I like the "author tag thingy" that brings the photo in.

Duckduckgo looks really nice. I like the site icons and the way the related searches were presented. But it was odd that their first answer (I'm assuming best guess) had nothing to do with everything else on the page. So why have that first answer?

Baidu's results were perhaps the most sub optimal. Across many of my searches, over lots of time, I've noticed that Baidu gives a lot of weight to domain names. This seems odd.

Ask seems to be the most cluttered. And, like in the case with Duckduckgo, the odd part was that the main body of search results seem to have nothing to do with the right nav. The "answers/questions" part seems to be running off a completely different algorithm. Odd.

Yandex is a great example of "oh I love white space" clashing with "it does not matter what the UI looks like, I would rather have better results." This is a lesson most UI designers seem to forget.

You'll notice the search results appear more cluttered on Yandex.ru, but they are immensely more useful. The top results are really good and comprehensive (though I would prefer they list the blog higher than the twitter feed). I love the pictures. And this was really awesome: I actually like that the right navigation showed the pictures and a video. Universal search results as they should be. And better, imho, than Google or Bing in terms of the look, feel, value perceived.

Which ones do you like the most? Why?
