if you were on a host like Linode and wanted to move to a better web host ... which host would you recommend? and why?
When clients dont want to pay for the stock photos you put in their design and use them as they are.

@dannysullivan @rustybrick No, I definitely mean search engines (among others), and Google is the worst by far, even w/o poor results: *inaccessible to anyone who cares about their privacy (improper Tor blocking) *hostile, scripts-required captchas *page redirect for mandatory, scripts-required cookie
Retweeted by SEO Book
@dannysullivan @rustybrick The fact that Google is totally unusable is no skin off my back, because I can work around it, but whoever decided every Google property should be gated by a redirect to a scripts-required cookie-gate has made the internet less safe. No law or bot problem justifies this.
Retweeted by SEO Book
@dannysullivan @rustybrick I seriously encourage anyone who has anything to do with google search to try to *any* google stuff in a privacy preserving manner: A) All scripts disabled, hardened browser. B) Via Tor (and after, via highly-shared VPNs). C) Not logged in. D) Definitely not using Chrome.

There is something hilarious to me about the founder of Visa tweeting every couple of months that his Twitter follower count is 'stuck', even though he's posting great insights. Sir, may I introduce you to shitposting?

@paulg This is a strange take in an age in which so much pop culture is dominated by Hollywood and music industry, to say nothing of trickle-down ideas from academia and filtered by Big Tech. It was more true 10 years ago, but even then it was true only of relatively few ppl.
Retweeted by SEO Book
@paulg Not really decentralized when the platforms those memes are on are owned by global corporations who control the algorithms for what gets exposure on front page and gets shown to whom. Not to mention no concern for social health and evolution, only almighty IRR
Retweeted by SEO Book
For better or worse, the basis of popular culture now seems to be user-generated content like memes and videos. When I was a kid it was TV. That's a big change, from maximally centralized to maximally decentralized.

Important note: continuous scroll is not "infinite scroll." Rather, continuous scrolling makes it easy to seamlessly view up to four pages of results, then you'll see a "See more" button if you wish to continue further.
Retweeted by SEO Book
Beginning today, continuous scrolling is starting to roll out to Google Search for most English searches on mobile devices in the US. Learn more: blog.google/products/searc…

one way to get attention, but maybe the wrong kind. hard to claim one is taking the high road while being so overt with the low road. wonder what led to that. twitter.com/jennyhalasz/st…
@rishil As a close second - not making sure there are GROWTH opportunities for the site content/traffic/income. Don't buy something that is already maxed out in any of those three categories.

I've covered how Google can provide longer titles in the *mobile* serps & how titles can be different on dtop/mob w/the title changes. Here's a good ex. G using the h1 on dtop (which I think works very well), but provides the full title tag on mobile. Make sure to check mobile :)

Hi @adsliaison Since Google recommends 2 ETAs & 1 RSA and has never recommended more than 1 RSA per ad group. Will the number of ads per ad group become restricted with this change? Will we be allowed to run 2-3 RSAs in an ad group?
Retweeted by SEO Book
Another example of why we want more control of RSAs. This is an RSA with 'excellent' ad strength. When it was paused, this ad group's conversions almost doubled due to G serving the highest CTR ad the most and not the one that converts the best. I have 1000s of these examples.
Retweeted by SEO Book
ETAs might be going away, but your ability to control ads is not. All you need to do is use 'pinning' at scale and you still have full control over your ad messaging. This is going to be essential for regulated industries and those who see poor RSA performance (*many* people).

the engagement metrics, however, end up horrible, so 6 of 1 and half dozen of the other. twitter.com/rustybrick/sta…
I remember back in the day when in spammy categories you had to regularly rotate page titles to prevent getting filtered out for anchor text manipulation created by scraper sites which republished the SERPs with a couple big fat AdSense blocks at the top of the page. :D twitter.com/rustybrick/sta…
It's ironic that @Google slammed black hatters for years for content spinning but now have developed a whole AI product (MUM) to rip people's content off and rewrite & repurpose it as their own without attribution. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ #SEO #Google #MUM #SEOTwitter

We haven't had an (indoor) dinner party since the epidemic started. Our 9 yo started to fill up the dining room with Lego sets he's built. Then he started referring to it as "the Lego room." A few days ago I caught myself calling it that.

One useful trick I've learned for startups is to strongly consider features you're nearly certain your competitors cannot idealogically build but your users would love. What can you build that would probably lead to endless debate and require a sacrifice from some other business?

This trend is visible even within Gen Z. The younger the person, the higher the probability that they have a negative view of cancel culture.

A sign cancel culture may have peaked: While it's most popular with millennials, Gen Z has the most negative opinion of it, more negative even than boomers.

The doctors who wrote the Lancet letter condemning the lab-leak hypothesis as a conspiracy theory now say their intent was to express their "working view." So now the way you express a working hypothesis that A is to publish an open letter condemning ~A as a conspiracy theory?
