Hi All, I had a question ElasticSearch, and what kinds of things someone who Architects or Engineers an ElasticSearch solution would do?  Is ElasticSearch open source tools and setup a viable tool-set to have? I hadn't seen this topic talked about in this community and didn't know if the SEO community uses ElasticSearch tools.

Thanks in advance for helping me think through this.

Thanks Trevor, That's why I'm asking. The architect wouldn't be someone who would be SEO savvy having an ElasticSearch specialty. But this architect would work with SEO experts to be sure they were aligning with the goals of the site when developing and deploying the content stack.

Anybody seeing weird things happening with URLs that have # in them in Google lately?

I have a URL that uses window.location.hash= to add a # specific to data about that user's location to the URL.  That page has a canonical that points back to the URL without the # in it, but if you visit it re-adds it again.

That page completely fell out of google last week.  I'm wondering if Google is starting to try to index # as actual URLs and the canonical is causing an infinite loop.

Given how well received our first week back was, why not do it again, right?

Is SEO dead in 2015.. The Google I searched shows only brands or spam. Though we are moving towards "personalized search" the results are bizzard some time. For example, my writing skills are just medium. Some genuine articles I wrote got less attention, while that scraped and re-written, got more boost. Voila. Google. I don't know what you are thinking. Just like that I have written these keyword research tips for 2015. http://www.seotipsit.com/keyword-research-tips-2015/

What's the current preferred method for age verification on Liquor sites?  If you make it a page with a redirect, Google never indexes the site. In 2010 they said "make it javascript" but now that they index javascript, they just index the age verification and not the actual pages anyway.

Curious if anybody's found a better way than cloaking ot deal with this. I thought about first click free - but legally I can't let a user in with that, so I'm back to cloaking.

It's a valid question. They haven't posted anything in 5 years about it.

With mobile devices overtaking all other platforms to access the Internet, Google search is evolving quickly. Search results are changing based on the way we speak, not the way we type.
