A Lot Of First-Page Google Results Are Using HTTPS

  • Skye Leist
  • October 18, 2014

[ Search]

Two months ago, Google announced that HTTPS is now a ranking signal used in its algorithm. The company had been pushing the use of HTTPS (HTTP over TLS/Transport Layer Security) for quite some time, and called for “HTTPS everywhere” at Google I/O earlier in the summer.

This week at SMX East Google indicated that 30% of first-page search results have HTTPS URL, which seems to say a lot. Barry Schwartz at SMX sister site Search Engine Land reports:

Gary [Illyes] explained that while only 10% of the crawled and discovered URLs on the web are HTTPS URLs, that 30% of the first page search results contain at least one or more HTTPS URLs. So if you are looking at all the queries done on Google, 30% of the first page of the Google search results for each of those queries have at least one HTTPS URL listed in the results.

He didn’t know why that was the case but he said it was indeed something Google noticed and wanted to share.

Google said when it announced the ranking signal that it would be a very lightweight signal at least for the time being. The c

Furniture is unwittingly designed by street artists

While graffiti may be considered an eyesore for some, others appreciate street art for its energy and authenticity, and its already becoming commodified. Projects such as Rebel Nell have taken pieces of crumbling graffitied wall in Detroit and turned it into unique jewelry. Now an Israel-based design studio has created Street Capture, which turns wood thats been painted on by anonymous graffiti artists into contemporary furniture.

Conceived by Eran Shimshovitz and Ariel Zuckerman of Ariel Design, the project first fixes wooden boards to locations that are frequented by street artists. The boards are left to be scrawled and painted on before being returned to the studio. Theyre then cut up, treated and reassembled as pieces of furniture that feature genuine art from the streets of Israel. The project has so far developed tables, desks and cupboards out of the grungy art.

Watch the video to see the designers in action:

The project could simultaneously help consumers enjoy urban art in their homes, while also reducing the impact on public spaces.

How to solve nasty money problems with payday loans in no time

  • admin
  • October 15, 2014

Sometimes you need some extra money but have no idea where to look for help. Getting payday loans can be a very beneficial solution depending on your situation. The benefits of these financial products include instant approval, quick availability of funds (24 hours or less), no hassle of credit check and affordable fees.

The good feature of cash loans low interest from Ecraal.org is that you can find out instantly if you are approved or not. By filling out an application form, you simply provide your name, address and employment information either through bank statements or payslips. Lenders check this information and tell you in 20 minutes if you are approved.

Once you’re approved, the money is usually transferred into your bank account within a few hours. In most cases, a call on the phone or a few mouse clicks and you could have the money the next morning in your account. Often it’s as simple as that.

You do not need to worry about your credit mistakes, because payday loan lenders do not ask for your credit history. In addition, more often than not, if you have bad credit, it is not even a problem because lenders have your employment information, which takes the place of your credit.

The application process is quick and easy. In addition, it is discrete. Nobody needs to know the amount you borrowed and for what purposes. This is great relief if you can not get a bank to lend you money or do not have other options available to you.

If you can reasonably afford the costs associated with getting a payday loan, it is often a great solution. However, if you know you will not be able to repay the borrowed money back in a reasonable amount of time, you should consider other options. You must also make sure that you do not have the habit of taking loans, because once you start, it is difficult to stop.

What Can Your Small Business Learn From Starbucks $1 Cups?

  • Finn Torode
  • October 12, 2014

Something is different at my local Starbucks. In line for my requisite morning latte the other day, I noticed several regulars already holding the signature green-on-white cup. Perplexed, I asked the barista what was happening. Apparently Id missed out on the launch of $1 reusable hot cups. The cups were deployed right around the turn of the new year. Available only in Grande (thats 16 ounces to the unfamiliar), they are intended for approximately 30 uses and are dishwasher safe, top rack only of course.

So why is Starbucks (who commonly sells tumblers over $20) selling these? What inspiration can your business take from it and other companies that have blazed the path? Well it depends on who you ask, but from my perspective its both an ethical and marketing endeavor.

Spend It, Make It

Obviously, businesses operate to make money. But, as the old adage goes, you have to spend money to make it.

Home Buyers Pay Extra $120K for Family’s Cat

  • Savannah Selle
  • October 12, 2014

Its difficult to put a price on a familys love for their cat, unless youre in Australia, where $122,000 seems to do the trick. A buyer bid that amount over the asking price for a home valued at about $2 million—as long as the owners threw in their cat, reports the Herald Sun of Melbourne. If youre expecting some kind of heartwarming stand taken by the Perceval family over their beloved Tiffany, forget it. They took the money and plan to get another cat at a shelter, maybe the same one where their 19-year-old son picked out Tiffany four years ago.

“We said to the agent, She goes with the house, hahaha not expecting at all to actually have a clause written into the contract saying it includes the cat,” Fran Perceval tells Sky News. She made the joke because Tiffany sat perched on a couch as potential buyers scoped out the house and drew a lot of attention, including from a child of the soon-to-be new owners. T

5 Unbreakable Rules of a Successful Business Lunch

  • Finn Torode
  • October 06, 2014

The most important business deals are discussed over a great lunch; however, simple mistakes can lead to failure. If you follow five basic rules, your next business meeting will be a huge success.

Discuss Your Plans During Breakfast, Lunch, Or Dinner
Business owners no longer have lunch only during the middle of the day. The term lunch was coined many years ago because business operations were tackled based on nine-to-five schedules. Today, however, most businesses operate 24/7. As a result, traditional lunch is considered as any meal; lunch can be held in the morning or in the afternoon with coffee at any location, such as the Monte Carlo Inns.

Objectives and Agenda

When employees are presented with food, they forget that they are at a business meeting. This is why you must have an agenda that involves what you want to discuss.

What is a “Natural” Link?

  • Skye Leist
  • October 05, 2014

In a perfect SEO world, the kind that Google would like us all to live and work in anyway, a natural link is one that the site owner had zero hand in actually creating. They didnt ask for it, barter for it, submit something for it, and so forthit was totally created by someone on the linking site with zero input from the site owner themselves. However, most of us cant afford to live in this perfect SEO world and just wait for great links to fall from the sky. With so much competition and so little room to go around, most site owners invest in a multitude of marketing tactics, such as content marketing, social media marketing, and SEO to help generate activity that leads to these natural links (as natural as they can be) that still adhere to the Google Webmaster Guidelines.

However, we have seen some natural links that are absolutely horrible getting ripped apart by Google in a manual action penalty.
