Google: We Don’t Hand Rank Web Pages, It Would Be Impossible

Google’s John Mueller said on Twitter that Google does not manually hand rank any web page. He added the web is too big for that and if they tried, it would be impossible.

I Wish Google Would Stop Saying They Do Hundreds Or Thousands Of Updates Per Year

I really wish Google would stop responding to algorithm update questions with “we do hundreds or thousands of changes per year.” Like I’ve been saying for years, I’d bet 95% of those updates have little to do with core ranking but more related to UX, UI and feature changes.

Steve Wozniak: I Believe Steve Jobs Would be Very Happy with Apple Today

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak said that he believes that Steve Jobs would be very happy with Apple today because they continue to put people above technology. Wozniak also said that other mobile phone companies are not really innovating, they are just creating fun features. He said that Apple is focusing on innovations like Touch ID that literally affect everything we do all the time in life.

Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder, recently discussed how Apple continues to live up to the vision that the company was founded on:

I Believe Steve Jobs Would be Very Happy with Apple Today

In my discussions with Steve Jobs, even when I met him in discussing philosophies of the world and how it works and what’s right and wrong… I believe that he would be very happy with the company today and its concern more with end users and putting people above technology. Steve always acted that way. The users should be more important than the technology itself. You should not be a victim of the technology and what it can do. You should get to live your human life in the most human way possible.

Apple was the first one to have a smart assistant called Siri where you could just talk a thought that you had in your head. You didn’t have to memorize a structured sequence of operations and memorization. That’s what we got the world away from… becoming human.

Real Innovation is What Changes Our Life.

People look at a product as an innovation and they say, oh my gosh all of these companies are coming out with other products and each one has a different look and a style and operating system. Wait a minute, what kind of innovation is that? Buy a Samsung phone, I used to do it. I love playing with other products and seeing what they do. You could say smile and it would take a picture a second later. Well, that’s a fun feature, but features aren’t innovation.

Real innovation is what changes our life. Apple was the first of the phone companies to put Touch ID. Let’s look at real things in life. Touch ID so you didn’t have to type passwords. Every other phone company had to come along and copy Apple. Apple was the first one to come up with an easy to pay system. Don’t even turn your phone on, don’t unlock it, don’t find an app, don’t type in a credit card number pin. Just hold your phone over the device and put your finger on it to identify yourself. Every other company now had to find easy ways to pay with your phone because you always have your phone with you. Those are major innovations that affect everything we do all the time in life.

If I Could Start Over As An Entrepreneur Again This Is One Thing I Would Do Differently

It was the year 2003… Like most days, I started my morning lying in bed on my back, feeling a combination of excitement and stress as I stared at the ceiling, thinking about all the things I’d like to change about my life. I was 23 years old, graduated from…

This Area Would Be Enough to Power the Whole World with Solar Energy

Did you know the amount of electricity consumed in the world each year? According to statistics Site Index Mundi, the world’s electricity consumption reached 17,780 million kWh in 2011 and 19.090 million kWh in 2012. With a growing population and expansion of the technological infrastructure, the number increases every year, while the energy resources of our planet are limited and will be exhausted in the near future.

At the same time, the Earth receives an average of 164 watts of solar energy per square meter in a 24-hour day, which makes 84 terawatts of energy (or 84 billion kWh) per day worldwide. So the challenge is to gather the necessary amount of solar energy through solar panels. You may think it should be covered with solar panels to power the entire world with vast territories of electricity. However, incredible as it may seem, a small piece of land would be enough to meet global demand for electricity.

According to a diploma thesis of Nadine May the Technical University of Braunschweig entitled “Eco-balance of a solar electricity from North Africa to Europe Transmission,” the world could be powered exclusively by solar energy through solar panels placed in a small area in North Africa.

The three red boxes can be seen in the above picture shows the area that would be enough to meet the demand for solar electricity in Germany (D), Europe (EU-25) and worldwide (Welt).

Of course, this would require the installation of equipment and network cables needed and have ecological impacts on the ecosystem of the region, which, however, would be many times lower than those of a conventional power plant. In all cases, the benefits would far outweigh the possible environmental effects.

“The overall we can say that, from an ecological point of view, nothing prevents the expansion of solar thermal power in North Africa and the transmission of solar electricity produced in Europe,” concluded May

Interestingly, the document was published in 2005. Now, ten years later, most countries still depend on conventional sources of energy production and take little advantage of renewable energy. The problem is that much depends on governments, most of which seem to favor the development of green technology and renewable energy.

This, however, should not prevent us having our own “green revolution” – everyone can install solar panels on your roof instead of continuing the use of technologies based on conventional fuels. Remember that the future of our planet depends on our decisions and behaviors. This, however, should not prevent us having our own “green revolution” – if more and more people are choosing to install solar panels on your roof instead of continuing to use conventional fuel technologies based on the world situation will change. Remember that the future of our planet depends on our decisions and behaviors.

Katniss Everdeen Would Be a ‘Huge’ Fan of Lorde and Taylor Swift, Says Jennifer Lawrence

Katniss Everdeen would be a huge fan of Lorde and Taylor Swift. So says Jennifer Lawrence, the actress who portrays the herione in the Hunger Games movie franchise. phorotocall for Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, the third installment of the series in London.

“I think Katniss [Everdeen] would be a huge Lorde fan and obviously Taylor Swift,” the Lawrence said at a photocall for Mockingjay — Part 1, the third episode of the series in London.

Makes sense, since Swift co-wrote two tracks for the first film and Lorde curated the soundtrack for the latest installment, according to Stuff.

“It was so bizarre really to hear a musical version of what emotionally you feel. She captured that character so magically,” Lawrence said of Lorde‘s song, Yellow Flicker Beat, which she wrote for the latest film.

Lawrence said she can relate to Katniss, even though this is really the first time she’s felt an affinity for a hero from a young adult novel.

“I’ve never really felt that inspired by somebody who’s from a young adult novel,” said Lawrence. “But [Katniss] has this kind of raw, embodied confidence and the way she makes decisions is very impulsive and just driven by this very clear moral compass she has, so that’s pretty appealing to me as someone who makes decisions in a similar way.”

Although Lawrence admires her character, she’s quick to point out how she differs from Katniss.

“She’s completely bare and has to rebuild herself,” she said of Katniss. “I would have just been crying every day, ‘Where’s my mom?’”

What would you like to see from Webmaster Tools in 2014?

A few years ago, I asked on my blog what people would like from Google’s free webmaster tools. It’s pretty cool to re-read that post now, because we’ve delivered on a lot of peoples’ requests.

At this point, our webmaster console will alert you to manual webspam actions that will directly affect your site. We’ve recently rolled out better visibility on website security issues, including radically improved resources for hacked site help. We’ve also improved the backlinks that we show to publishers and site owners. Along the way, we’ve also created a website that explains how search works, and Google has done dozens of “office hours” hangouts for websites. And we’re just about to hit 15 million views on ~500 different webmaster videos.

So here’s my question: what would you like to see from Webmaster Tools (or the larger team) in 2014? I’ll throw out a few ideas below, but please leave suggestions in the comments. Bear in mind that I’m not promising we’ll do any of these–this is just to get your mental juices going.

Some things that I could imagine people wanting:

  • Make it easier/faster to claim authorship or do authorship markup.
  • Improved reporting of spam, bugs, errors, or issues. Maybe people who do very good spam reports could be “deputized” so their future spam reports would be fast-tracked. Or perhaps a karma, cred, or peer-based system could bubble up the most important issues, bad search results, etc.
  • Option to download the web pages that Google has seen from your site, in case a catastrophe like a hard drive failure or a virus takes down your entire website.
  • Checklists or help for new businesses that are just starting out.
  • Periodic reports with advice on improving areas like mobile or page speed.
  • Send Google “fat pings” of content before publishing it on the web, to make it easier for Google to tell where content appeared first on the web.
  • Better tools for detecting or reporting duplicate content or scrapers.
  • Show pages that don’t validate.
  • Show the source pages that link to your 404 pages, so you can contact other sites and ask if they want to fix their broken links.
  • Or almost as nice: tell the pages on your website that lead to 404s or broken links, so that site owners can fix their own broken links.
  • Better or faster bulk url removal (maybe pages that match a specific phrase?).
  • Refreshing the existing data in Webmaster Tools faster or better.
  • Improve robots.txt checker to handle even longer files.
  • Ways for site owners to tell us more about their site: anything from country-level data to language to authorship to what content management system (CMS) you use on different parts of the site. That might help Google improve how it crawls different parts of a domain.

To be clear, this is just some personal brainstorming–I’m not saying that the Webmaster Tools team will work on any of these. What I’d really like to hear is what you would like to see in 2014, either in Webmaster Tools or from the larger team that works with webmasters and site owners.

How a Super-Villain Would Spend Google’s Revenue [Infographic]

billionaireWith Comic-Con just behind us and another weekend on the horizon, I thought it would be a great time to bust out the super-villain infographic.

This hand-drawn work of comic book-style art comes to us from Customer Magnetism, a digital marketing agency in Virgina Beach. It features a seriously insidious look at how a super villain would spend the 50.2 billion dollars that Google raked in last year.

The internet giant is probably going to spend its cash on silly things like product development, data security and hiring amazing and creative programmers. What a waste! They could be spending that money on a secret submarine lair in Norway or a crew of robot butlers. And let’s not forget a pen of hammer-head shark with “lasers.” Yes. I said “lasers.”

The folks at Customer Magnetism say that even though the comic book world is fictional, the dollar figures in this infographic are real. Reminds of those people who try to add up the 12 Days of Christmas gift costs.

Enjoy this walk on the wild side.

Google-Super-Villain-IG-72dpi-DONE

 

How would you spend 50.2 billion? Would you go super hero and spend it for the greater good? Or would you rather have laser sharks in your swimming pool?
