Businesses; Update Your Business Hours Or Google Maps Might Tell Your Customers To Turn Around
http://bit.ly/1eH0Hu2

"First reported by Android Police, Google Maps added a feature that when you navigate using the Google Maps app to a specific place, if that place will be closed by the time you are expected to arrive, it will tell you and suggest that you don't bother going.
Google's warning reads, "your destination may be closed by the time you arrive.

"This gives you one more reason to encourage your clients and even for your own business, to make sure your business hours of operation are correctly listed in your Google My Business center. "

Quotes Card in Google Search
http://bit.ly/1eH0zuB

"Google shows a card with a long list of quotes for searches like [Einstein quotes]. This works in the desktop interface and the mobile site and it's a quick way to find some quotations without visiting any search result."

The results will not show the source of the quotes. Some are not pleased, and of course, quote sites are certainly not pleased about this.

Bing Moing to Encrypt Search Traffic by Default
http://bit.ly/1eGZYcg

"With the move to encrypted search by default we will continue to pass along a referrer string so that marketers and webmasters will be able to identify traffic as coming from Bing. However, to further protect our users’ privacy, we will not include the used query terms.  We will still provide some limited query term data available without compromising the security of customer data through our various webmaster and advertiser tools..."

Personally I have not seen any boost or drop after the https update. Is Google turning up the nudges or are more and more sites implementing https?

Long, but a good read about ethics with Penguin. Certainly something to rile SEOs up.

Not really unexpected. What I do like is that the spokesman (-men) from Google isn' t from the web spam team.

You get a Facebook, and you get a Facebook. Everybody gets a Facebook! But you get a Twitter.  (Insert Oprah meme here.)

"It is interesting that Bing is giving this prominent placement to Facebook, especially consideirng Bing and Twitter have a deal, and Bing could just as easily be placing tweets in that spot."

"Bing has also done deals with Facebook, most notably providing Facebook with translation features for posts in a language other than the one the user has set as their preferred language, however Facebook has alternately dropped them and reused them..."

"Bing has definitely been stepping up with social media in their search results.  Last month they added a “Trending on Social Networks” section to search results that had a lot of Facebook and/or Twitter posts."

Bottom line:
"According to Gary Illyes from Google [in a tweet link in the article] , he said that Google does, in fact, consider all SSL certificates as equal when it comes to ranking purposes."

And of course, always get a certificate from a company recognized as a Certificate Authority (CA). Well, that's m2c.

[Despite the tweet, however,] "Many believe that Google tracks bounce rate, not through Analytics, but by using data that shows when a searcher clicks through to a site, and then clicks on another result in that same set of search results in a very short period of time, especially since Google does track those clicks."

260 characters in this SERP page snippet. But we know that Google only allows 160 characters in the meta description. But now a days the rules are not maintained sometimes. One of my friend +K Neeraj Kayastha   told me yesterday that "*Google Search Results now pro-searcher not pro-SEO.*"
He is absolutely right.
I have found a logic why the larger snippet displays in the SERP. In this Image see at the top search query there are three keywords Post FREE Ads, Natun Bazar, Free Classified. All the results are below 160 characters except the last one with 260 characters. Why this snippet is larger. May be the logic is my search queries. You can see the description at the last snippet that there are all three keywords are showing. Google collected all the keywords for me i have searched from the page because she thoughts that this might be helpful for me, And the website is well optimized, most visited in Bangladesh so this comes to the SERP. I have visited the site and found that the meta description is totally different for the page. So Google collected the important text from the websites body that are matched with my queries and this is the reason for the snippet to become larger than others.
You can see that most of the top snippets also showing the keywords but all the keywords are between 160 characters so those snippets don't need to be larger. 
May be i'm not 100% right. You can share different thought. Thank you.
