Pure SEO’s This Week In Search series takes a look at the top SEO and SEM news stories from the week. This week is all about the Big G: Google plans on making audio content searchable, confirmed a core algorithm update, released new policies regarding autocomplete predictions, and is facing a canonical negative SEO issue. Google Plans to Search Audio Content In a recent interview, Zack Reneau-Wedeen from Google’s Podcasts team expressed that Google wants to make audio content searchable. “Right now Google is really good at giving you text and video related to your search query. With all the amazing work podcasters are publishing each day, there’s no good reason why audio isn’t a first-class citizen in the same way.” To do this, Google is planning on incorporating podcast metadata into search results. This means that individual podcast episodes have the potential to come up in search results if topics or creators are searched for — … [Read more...] about This Week in Search: Google Plans on Searching Audio Content, and More!

Google's John Mueller said on Twitter that disabling the right click on your web pages and/or disabling the ability to select content on your web pages, has no impact on your SEO or rankings. John did add that doing so is "obnoxious" and "useless" because it is easy to get around those prevention features.Here are the tweets:We discussed this topic over 7 years ago but this is the first time we covered Google talking about it.Do you disable these features? If so, why? Forum discussion at Twitter. … [Read more...] about Google: Disabling Right Click & Content Selection Doesn’t Impact SEO
At Yahoo Anecdotal today Yahoo announced that they had recently opened the Yahoo Accessibility Lab; a place where only Yahoo employees (for now) can experience the world of the Internet as a disabled web surfer would. The blog posting also states: "In addition to simulating the disabled experience, the Accessibility Lab also provides a growing collection of books and videos that we hope will help visitors become more comfortable with the culture of disability. And help Yahoos keep disabled kids and adults clearly in mind as they design and code." Congratulations Yahoo for taking the reigns and raising awareness of such an under-served topic. Now I am the first to admit that I have no concept of how difficult it must be to navigate the web with a disability. That said, I would love to get a sense of such an experience to provide valuable perspective when I create my own websites and to consult clients on their designs. My friend Lee Roberts over at MerchantMetrix is an … [Read more...] about Yahoo Champions Internet Accessibility for the Disabled
Android Market is dead. Long live Google Play! Today, Google announced that it is changing the name of its Android Market to Google Play, a move it hopes better reflects that the marketplace now offers more than apps, with content like books, video and music available even to those who aren’t using Android. “This is really an acknowledgement that these experiences are relevant not just for a mobile environment but across the web,” said Jamie Rosenberg, Google’s director of digital content. Google’s March To Selling Content Over the past year or so, Google has been ramping up how it sells content directly to consumers. The Google eBookstore launched in December 2010. YouTube movie rentals were offered last May. Google Music began selling songs last November. None of these services were Android-specific, yet the Android Market slowly became a common storefront where this type of content could be purchased. The Android Market was given a facelift last July to … [Read more...] about Android Market Becomes “Google Play,” Reflects Google’s Multiplatform Content Aims
I’ve written in the past about many of the reasons why you might find the same content at different pages on the Web, and some of the problems that duplicate content might present to search engines. When someone performs a search on the Web, a search engine doesn’t want to show more than one page that contains the same or very similar content to that searcher. A search engine also doesn’t want to spend time and effort in crawling and indexing the same content on different sites. One of the challenges that a search engine faces when it sees duplicate content is deciding which page (or image or video or audio content) to show to a searcher in search results. If a search engine provided a way for creators of content to find unauthorized uses of their content on the Web, it might take some of that burden off the search engine. A newly published patent application from Google describes a process that could be provided for people to search for duplicate copies of their … [Read more...] about Google to Help Content Creators Find Unauthorized Duplicated Text, Images, Audio, and Video?
After less than a week since its release, three of America’s largest television networks have started blocking Google TV users from watching video content on their web sites. Sort of. While ABC and CBS keep Google TV viewers out, as does Hulu, NBC actually still seems to let them in. Below, a visual look at the blocked world of Google TV. Google TV & Network Content Before doing the blocking tour, I think some basics are in order. For one, none of the networks are blocking Google TV users from accessing broadcast television. You can still go to ABC, CBS and NBC directly to watch over-the-air broadcasts through Google TV just fine. Instead, what’s being blocked are some full-length episodes of TV shows that the network provide on their web sites (some short video clips are not being blocked)> Next, it’s important to understand more about how Google TV displays video content from the web sites of major networks. The answer is easy. There’s no difference … [Read more...] about A Tour Of How Networks Have Blocked Google TV From Their Web Content
Last week, the Roku player gained support for Hulu Plus. I’ve been trying out the combo for the past few days, and it’s pretty awesome. It further fulfills the promise of streaming TV content from the internet and back to your TV in the way that Google TV hasn’t. Roku: My First Day Review & Impressions is my look at the Roku box and how it works from last month. That piece also covers Hulu Plus, a version of Hulu that allows access to more episodes that the regular Hulu offers — for a $8 per month fee. The Hulu Plus price just dropped last week from $10 per month. Coinciding with that price drop, Hulu Plus finally came to the Roku. Previously, it was a promised “channel” but one that you couldn’t actually use. I’ve used Hulu occasionally from my laptop to catch-up on TV shows. Having it as part of the Roku box makes life even easier. It just works, something Apple likes to say about its products, but this is a non-Apple product that … [Read more...] about Roku + Hulu Plus = Pretty Awesome

More searches are now performed on mobile compared to desktop and m-commerce grew three times faster than ecommerce in 2015. Even aside from purchases made on the devices themselves, mobile is also having a tremendous impact on in-store purchases. According to Deloitte, mobile has an impact of $970 billion on offline purchases. These changes force brands to have a mindset shift. Instead of just being mobile-compatible, they need to be mobile-optimized. Sites need to think specifically about what mobile customers want to see and create sites and online experiences that are tailored to them. One of the most important factors in the mobile experience is speed. About 40% of visitors will abandon a site if it does not load in 3 seconds. This means that companies are potentially experiencing massive losses in traffic and revenue if their sites do not meet the needs of customers. Google’s solution to this problem has been the launch of AMP, or Accelerated Mobile Pages. What is AMP? … [Read more...] about Google Accelerated Mobile Pages and content: the need for speed
