Suchergebnis für eigenen Namen selbst bestimmen: Google führt ‚Search Profile Cards‘ ein

Google wird zukünftig die Möglichkeit anbieten, bei Suchanfragen nach dem eigenen Namen bestimmte Informationen anzuzeigen, die von den betreffenden Personen selbst bestimmt werden können. Dies wird mithilfe sogenannter ‚Search Profile Cards‘ möglich sein.

Bisher zeigt Google normalerweise nur für prominente Personen zusätzliche Informationen in den Suchergebnissen an, und zwar in Form spezieller Karten. Für die übrigen Personen sieht man dagegen nur die üblichen Suchergebnisse.

Das wird sich zukünfig wohl ändern: Nach einem Bericht von Android Police wird es demnächst sogenannte Search Profile Cards geben, die es den Nutzer ermöglichen werden, persönliche Angaben einzutragen, die bei Suchanfragen nach ihrem Namen erscheinen werden.

Die Karten sind noch nicht live. Es gibt aber bereits eine entsprechende Dokumentation, von der SEO Glenn Gabe einen Screenshot auf Twitter geteilt hat:

How to use machine learning (if you can’t code) to help your keyword research

Here’s an easy way to categorize 100k keywords in less than a few hours of actual working time. (…)

I’m a sucker for a trend. So the minute all the SEOs started shouting about how great Python is, of course I am on the bandwagon. My goal is to streamline the keyword research process even further and I’m loving learning such an adaptable language. But then I came across this video by David Sottimano where he introduced BigML into my life. Imagine an online “drag and drop” machine learning service; a system literally anyone can use. This is BigML.

Google FAQ Rich Result Guideline Update: One Markup Per Question Throughout Site
Let’s say you have a large site and you have FAQs throughout the site. Sometimes you might decide to answer the same question in multiple FAQ pages just because it is useful for that user reading that specific FAQ page. Well, if you do, don’t you dare try adding FAQ markup to all the pages that have that question. Instead, pick one of the pages that has the question and answer and add the markup to only one of those pages – not to all the pages that have that question and answer.

Meta descriptions and branding have the most influence on search CTR, survey finds

Key Findings:

  • The majority of respondents are not receptive to ads in the search results. Most (85.2%) preferred to click on organic results, and 66.7% responded that if Google added more ads to the results, they would want to use the search engine less.
  • Written content is still king. Despite the growing emphasis on video and image production, 55% still prefer to see written content in the search results.
  • Web privacy continues to be a concern for users. In the case of ad targeting, 62.1% had no idea why Google was targeting them for certain ads.
  • Ranking #1 isn’t everything. Yes, ranking higher is better, but most respondents looked at more than three search results before deciding to click.
  • Brand awareness matters, but it’s not a deal-breaker. The slight majority, 55%, said that they would only click on a brand they knew in the search results, while 44.9% would still click regardless of they knew the brand.

  • Good news for Google: most searchers are satisfied with the search results. When asked, 72% replied that the search engine was mostly accurate at matching their queries will search results.







How Data From Popular Keyword Research Tools Compare

To our knowledge this is the first large-scale comparison of the data provided by various keyword research tools.

And now it’s time to share what we discovered.

Summary of Our Key Findings:

  1. Ahrefs and SEMrush generate the highest number of keyword suggestions, followed by Ubersuggest, Sistrix, and SECockpit.
  2. The Google Keyword Planner provides 67.9% fewer keyword suggestions than the average output from other major paid SEO tools. However, KWFinder and KWTool both produce similar amounts of keyword suggestions compared to GKP.
  3. KeywordTool.io and Sistrix tend to provide higher than average monthly search volume estimates. Sistrix’s search volume estimates are 233% higher than the median, while KeywordTool.io is 47% above the median. Moz and Ahrefs skew towards slightly lower search volume estimates. Ahrefs’s search volumes are 37% less than the median while Moz Pro’s search volume estimates are 33% below the tool-wide median.
  4. When analyzing search volume data for popular search terms (>10k searches/month) Sistrix has significantly higher monthly search volume estimates vs. the Google Keyword Planner.
  5. All the SEO tools in our analysis had a significant negative correlation between search volume and keyword length.
  6. Certain tools tend to outperform others in terms of keyword suggestions in specific industries. For example, while they generally produce fewer suggestions than SEMrush and Ahrefs, Moz and Google Keyword Planner tend to generate a relatively high number of suggestions in the web hosting niche. And Ubersuggest is particularly good at finding keyword ideas in the marketing, travel, and diet niches.
  7. We found large variations for keyword difficulty scores between tools. Our data discovered that SEMrush’s keyword difficulty scores are 110% above the median. SECockpit estimates keyword difficulty 82% below the median.
  8. The median CPC across all of the terms that we analyzed was $1.68. SECockpit ($2.20) and Google Keyword Planner ($2.14) report higher overall CPC than the average. At $1.39, SEMrush has the lowest CPC estimates.
  9. When comparing CPC estimates found in Google Keyword Planner vs. other tools, SECockpit has considerably higher cost per click estimates compared to those found in Google Keyword Planner. KWFinder, Long Tail Pro, KeywordTool.io, Sistrix, Ahrefs, and SEMrush have lower cost per clicks than Google Keyword Planner.





10 Google Ranking Factors You Shouldn’t Ignore

Most lists of Google ranking factors are too long. They focus on listing every factor under the sun instead of those that actually matter.
Even worse, because nobody knows them all, most contain a lot of myths.
So today, we’re going to take a different approach. Rather than listing 200+ ranking factors, we’ll talk about the ten that we think most deserve your attention.
Here they are, in no particular order:


This list contains direct and indirect ranking factors. We didn’t discriminate between the two because we think most people just want to rank higher in Google and aren’t worried about semantics. If you’re curious about the difference between the two, read this.

Critical Bugs in WordPress Plugins Let Hackers Take Over Sites

Hackers are attempting to take over tens of thousands of WordPress sites by exploiting critical vulnerabilities including a zero-day in multiple plugins that allow them to create rogue administrator​​​ accounts and to plant backdoors.

The attacks on WordPress sites have started yesterday by targeting a zero-day unauthenticated stored XSS bug found in the Flexible Checkout Fields for WooCommerce plugin with 20,000 active installations by researchers at NinTechNet.

While the plugin’s development team WP Desk pushed out version 2.3.2 to fix the actively targeted security flaw within an hour after receiving the disclosure report from NinTechNet, some users were hacked until it was available and ready to install.






WordPress: Aktive Angriffe auf Async JavaScript und drei weitere Plugins

Über teils kritische Sicherheitslücken in vier Plugins für WordPress könnten Angreifer Installationen des CMS übernehmen. Es gibt Updates.

Updates für die vier WordPress-Plugins Async JavaScript, Flexible Checkout Fields for WooCommerce, Modern Events Calendar Lite und 10Web Map Builder for Google Maps schließen Schwachstellen, die laut Sicherheitsforschern im Zuge einer Angriffskampagne aktiv ausgenutzt werden.






Let’s Encrypt muss drei Millionen Zertifikate zurückziehen

Ein Fehler bei Let’s Encrypt hat dazu geführt, dass der Check von CAA-DNS-Records nicht korrekt durchgeführt wurde. Die Zertifizierungsstelle zieht jetzt kurzfristig betroffene Zertifikate zurück, was für einige Probleme sorgen dürfte. (…)

Webseitenbetreiber können mittels eines bereitgestellten Online-Checks prüfen, ob ihr Zertifikat von dem Problem betroffen ist. Wer größere Mengen an Zertifikaten automatisiert prüfen möchte, kann auch eine Liste der Seriennummern aller betroffenen Zertifikate herunterladen.

Domain-Tricks mit Zeichensätzen: Homograph-Angriffe nach 15 Jahren noch effektiv

Neue Version eines alten Tricks: Mit IPA-Zeichen lassen sich täuschend echte Fake-Domains registrieren und mit TLS-Zertifikaten versehen. (…)
So funktioniert der Homograph-Angriff
Bei einer mit dem Homograph-Trick registrierten Domain haben Besucher in der Regel kaum eine Chance zu erkennen, dass ein Link sie auf eine gefälschte Webseite gelockt hat. Für das Opfer sieht es zum Beispiel so aus, als sei er auf amazon.de gelandet – was er allerdings nicht weiß ist, dass eins der „a“ Zeichen in der Domain kein lateinisches kleines a sondern ein kyrillisches а ist. Da beide Zeichen in manchen Schriftsätzen identisch angezeigt werden, kann der Besucher nicht erkennen, dass er nicht auf amazon.de, sondern auf einer komplett anderen Domain gelandet ist. Auch das TLS-Zertifikat, gültig für diese andere Domain, sieht aus, als sei es für amazon.de gültig.
