This is a very interesting interview with Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook. Mark mentions that if he and Facebook were doing this only for money, it does not make sense. Because the "first billion people using Facebook have more money than the other six billion people not using Facebook combined". So after you watch this interview you will see Mark Zuckerberg's sincere desire to help the 4.2 billion people of the world that do not have access to the Internet. Forty percent or 3 billion people do currently have access to the Internet.

Below are emails about why and how we are fixing a website to become a responsive web site design that passes the Google Mobile Test.
As mentioned in a previous post, this is a big deal for 4-21-15.

Please see details below.

For some sites it may be better just to start over using the Bootstrap Framework.
Top 5 Reasons to Use the Bootstrap Framework. In other cases you may only need to add some code for "media query in CSS".
Please see:

Besides using the Google mobile test, you should also run:

You will see more website optimization information by running both Google tests.

On 4-21-15 Google will start giving more search engine ranking points (e.g. "expanding our use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal ... and will have a significant impact in our search results" as Google likes to say) to websites that are optimized for mobile devices. "This change will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide." This seems like a powerful statement from Google.

You want your results to look like the screen shot below.

You do not want to have your Google mobile test look like the following. Even my team has work to do to fix this one.

Google seems to be adjusting the search results and they are becoming slightly worse.

The newest search results from Google are fantastic. If you want to see them in the USA make sure you are logged out of Google and set your location to USA.

I am not sure what is happening outside of the US, however Google has made some improvements in the algorithms it uses in the US to produce search quality results vastly superior to Bing's search results.

I do not pay any attention whatsoever to any of these code names (Panda, Hummingbird, etc.) people or Google come up with for updates to the Google ranking algorithms. Because if webmasters focus on building super high quality merit based backlinks Google will reward you more and more over time.

Please remember Google is an a quest like a Terminator to kill off Spam and to reward quality content. Some people that call themselves SEO experts, just keep coming up with new blackhat scams one after another. Then Google keeps finding these blackhat tricks and filters them out. The only games that may last as long as these search engine cat and mouse games, are the games Greece and Germany are playing in the Eurozone.

I consider this update by Google a "major one" based on the significant search result improvements, and by how long Google is taking to completely release it to all Google servers. I believe many search engine power users like me, will agree when they test out the latest Google search results.

thank-you-for all-the-positive-comments-and-feedback


I want to thank everyone who reads this website for all the positive comments (1847+ recently) you send to me.
Of course this gives me motivation to keep going when I receive nice comments like this:

"Wow!  At last I have a blog from where I can genuinely obtain useful data helping my studies and knowledge."

"Amazing!  It's a truly remarkable post; I have a much clearer idea concerning this complex topic (Search Engine Optimization) from this excellent piece of writing."

The Search Engine Optimization (SEO) process is an ongoing continuing process that we perform every day for our clients. It is possible to become very successful with top natural/organic SEO rankings, as most (68% to 90%) searchers skip the paid ads. This large range is highly keyword dependent, e.g. if someone is searching for "buy refrigerator" vs. "what is George Washington's birthday". People searching to buy a new refrigerator have a higher probability of clicking on a paid Google Ad, then someone searching for George Washington's birthday.
The other major benefit of natural or organic #1 rankings is you do not have to pay per click.  Google Adwords can run as high as $182+ per click for highly competitive keyword phrases.
It is very important to stay with SEO methodologies long term in order to achieve the desired results.  If you stop this process your web traffic and rankings will drop, and it may be difficult to recover previous top rankings.
You can not turn natural SEO on and off like you can for Google Adwords.
Also website owners that jump around from SEO Company to SEO Company are in danger of being penalized by Google.
Google is very complex and secret so no one can claim to be 100% accurate as to why Google makes the decisions it does.  However we do know that Google has many different types of penalties some of which are manual and some of which are automated via advanced software algorithms.
The quality of your backlinks and the longer your backlinks are aged, make up major factors in the Google software ranking algorithms.  Please remember if you lose important authoritative backlinks, then you must start the aging process over from the starting line.  Besides losing PageRank, this also brings suspicion from Google, and you do not want that to happen.  Google detects all these changes looking for unnatural suspicious activities.
