Google is testing, or maybe rolling out, a new feature in the search results that lets you see more content from a web site without having to click to the site. Instead of showing normal Sitelinks, which are in the screen shot above on the left, you are presented with more detail Sitelinks, which are shown in the screen shot on the right. How do these new Sitelinks work? When you are shown the new Sitelinks, they are listed under the main search result snippet with arrows down to expand the results. Here is a closer look: You can expand the number of sitelinks by clicking on “show more” and/or click on a specific sitelink to see more from the web site directly related to that sitelink directly in the Google results: How can I see this in action?

Type “What is the future of search?” into Google and in 0.47 seconds the search engine replies with a list of sites asking the same question, together with a note that it had found about 2,110,000,000 other results. Ponder that number for a moment, for it reflects the scale of the information explosion that was triggered by Tim Berners-Lee’s invention of the web in 1989-90. Back then there were no search engines because there was no need for them: there were very few websites in those early days. Google turned 20 recently and the anniversary prompted a small wave of reflections by those who (like this columnist) remember a world BG (before Google), when information was much harder to find. The nicest one I found was a blog post by Ralph Leighton, who was a friend of Richard Feynman, th

Google has now initiated analyzing its mobile-first index. This new index will seem as first of the mobile version of your website for its ranking indications and stand-in on the desktop version when there is no mobile version. Google has been sluggishly going forward with a mobile-first index for moderately a while at present. Google first implied at their purposes of a mobile-first index about a year ago, but on November 4, it was the first time Google has forwarded information about the mobile-first index on their blog. Thus, if you have been slow-moving in connecting with the mobile revolution, now it is the best time to take the right action. As mobile carries on to control search, Google and the other search engines are going to set more and more stress on mobile. Let’s move our

Google’s censored search engine and news app for China has seen a considerable amount of controversy since news of the project first broke, but it may have just gotten its biggest pushback yet in the form of direct opposition from the Trump administration. According to The Wall Street Journal, Vice President Mike Pence commented today in a speech that Google’s modified search engine — currently under the codename Dragonfly — would “strengthen Communist Party censorship and compromise the privacy of Chinese customers.” The Intercept was the first to break the news about the censored search app earlier this year, with later reports revealing that Dragonfly reportedly links searches to phone numbers, making it easy for searches to be tracked and tied to specific individuals. Google has

NEW YORK -- U.S. Vice President Mike Pence sharply criticized Chinese aggression and interference, both military and economic, in a wide-ranging speech on Thursday at a Washington-based think tank that called out Beijing's activities in the South China Sea and singled out Google for its plans to return to China."Google should immediately end development of the Dragonfly app that will strengthen the Communist Party's censorship, and compromise the privacy of Chinese customers," Pence said of the secretive project, which would allow the tech company to restart its search engine operations in mainland China in compliance with Beijing's strict censorship laws. The company's plans have met with opposition from employees, who have circulated a letter demanding more transparency from managemen...
