Google has not made a major update to its AdWords UI since it first launched in October 2000, when the world was still on desktop

Renaming products isn't just a Google thing. Brands have been doing it forever, usually to create new interest in a dying product or for some new executive to put their personal brand on it.

congrats +Bradley Horowitz 
 
Just wanted to confirm that the rumors are true -- I’m excited to be running Google’s Photos and Streams products!  It’s important to me that these changes are properly understood to be positive improvements to both our products and how they reach users.

Hi there... we've all heard enough about Google's infamous RankBrain. We just don't hear the important questions. What do we know about it? Is it something to think about (personally, or professionally)? What do we tell our clients/bosses, if anything?

We may not know... but we'll damned well tell you what we think, and you can take it from there. 

Join us and our guests +Eric Enge -+Bill Slawski -+Ammon Johns and +Doc Sheldon     for what should be an awesome session!
This Hangout On Air is hosted by SEO Training Dojo. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Getting your head around Google's RankBrain - my definitive deep-dive on the subject (enjoy) http://goo.gl/NsP4Yg
Recently, the Google RankBrain system has started to garner quite the buzz within the SEO community — but to a large degree, it’s not entirely being understood. We’ve even had some somewhat link-baity post titles that didn’t help things either. And of course, Google didn’t do itself any favors including the word “rank” in the name. So, let’s …

Very good, in-depth post about RankBrain.  Gotta agree, Google did not name this well.

Getting your head around RankBrain

In a few groups I am a part of there has been some confusion as far as what exactly Google's RankBrain is, and does. As such I am researching more and will likely write something fairly soon. In the mean time, here's some links to things I have been reading;

This is what i have so far... I am writing a post to try and clear things  up as there is a TON of misinformation and misunderstanding about Google's RankBrain.

One of the best real insights into how Google works today to have come from the company in years:

http://www.slideshare.net/SearchMarketingExpo/how-google-works-a-ranking-engineers-perspective-by-paul-haahr 

+Paul Haahr put together a superb presentation at SMX West recently that pretty much wowed all attendees.  With it available through Slideshare, nobody should miss the presentation.

Has anyone else noticed that Google+ business pages are no longer visible to users who are not logged into G+? I was just checking reviews for a client and noted that I had to be logged in to see the "plus.google.com/lotsofnumbers/about" URL.

Running into a couple of strange things this week. Just curious if anyone has experienced this before with Google.

1 year ago a site was moved to a new domain. Everything was done correctly and the Google SERPs stopped showing any pages for the old domain.

Recently, pages with the old domain started showing up in the SERPs again. When I look at the cached version, it's of the new page and revealing the source code Google even states it's the new domain.

All thoughts, comments etc. are appreciated as I'm trying to figure out if this is causing an issue with the overall ranking of the site as ranking started to drop as this started to happen.

Every time I've seen something like this it has always lead to a hosting issue. It could be something in the server's DNS settings as well.
