How to Improve Page Speed from Start to Finish (Advanced Guide)
Good and profound article / checklist :)
Except maybe for the misleading title – it is an advanced guide, after all… But it is not for the advanced user, but for maybe intermediate users, because they go into every detail, explaining everything.
I was shocked by:
„Take a look at the Request Map below for Forbes.com. Each point is an individual file request, and each line is where one file is referencing another file that has to be downloaded. Overall it’s 363 requests across 128 connections.“
And I didn’t know: „A fun fact revealed by Martin Splitt of Google is that Googlebot saves time and resources by not actually painting the pixels of a page. They have the information they need after layouting.“
Did you know how to „Loading CSS Asynchronously“?
That was a reveal!
Marketers surveyed say they would choose Google Ads over SEO if they had to
A separate but thematically related survey found that only 30% of SMB owners had an SEO strategy.
During this time of marketing budget freezes and re-deployments, the question of which channels to use for greatest impact is top of mind for most marketers. Two surveys cast some light on the current thinking among marketing professionals and small business owners about the relative merits of SEO and PPC.
Webmaster Conference Mountain View 2019 Videos
Welcome to the first ever Webmaster Conference Product Summit held in Mountain View, California, in November ’19. Watch all the recorded talks given by Google software engineers and product managers covering topics from Googlebot, rendering and Google images to how Google works on improving Search.
Google Images: Best Practices for Search
Fundamental veränderte Herangehensweise beim Bilder-Ranking in den letzten Jahren, viel mehr auf Surrounding Content bzw. den Content der Seite, also ob das Nutzerbedürfnis befriedigt wird.
Was hierbei interessant war: Auch die Google Crawler sind Ressourcen-limitiert und fetchen nicht immer alle Ressourcen einer Seite. Das könnten / wollten sie gar nicht bewältigen.
Sie cachen also sehr (!) viel (im Prinzip alles, was geht).
Und sie haben CPU-Limits. Wenn ein Script zu lange braucht, brechen sie auch mal einfach ab.

Deconstructing BERT: Distilling 6 Patterns from 100 Million Parameters
From BERT’s tangled web of attention, some intuitive patterns emerge.
The year 2018 marked a turning point for the field of Natural Language Processing, with a series of deep-learning models achieving state-of-the-art results on NLP tasks ranging from question answering to sentiment classification. Most recently, Google’s BERT algorithm has emerged as a sort of “one model to rule them all,” based on its superior performance over a wide variety of tasks.
BERT builds on two key ideas that have been responsible for many of the recent advances in NLP: (1) the transformer architecture and (2) unsupervised pre-training. The transformer is a sequence model that forgoes the recurrent structure of RNN’s for a fully attention-based approach, as described in the classic Attention Is All You Need. BERT is also pre-trained; its weights are learned in advance through two unsupervised tasks: masked language modeling (predicting a missing word given the left and right context) and next sentence prediction (predicting whether one sentence follows another). Thus BERT doesn’t need to be trained from scratch for each new task; rather, its weights are fine-tuned.
Google ends support for data-vocabulary.org structured data in rich results
A last reminder to switch to schema.org markup before April 6 to maintain rich result eligibility.
Beginning April 6, data-vocabulary.org structured data markup will be ineligible for Google rich results. Site owners must switch to schema.org markup if they want to maintain Google rich result eligibility. The company announced the coming change in January.
Google Chrome finally gets serious competition: are YOU going to switch?
GOOGLE CHROME remains the most popular web browser around right now, but Microsoft has seen a colossal surge in popularity for its alternative for the first time since it launched. Here’s everything you need to know.
Google Chrome is comfortably the most popular web browser on the planet – accounting for more than 69 percent of all desktop web browser traffic worldwide. Until now, there hasn’t been much competition for the Google-owned app on desktop, which gained huge traction thanks to its fast performance and innovative omnibox (that incorporates Google search and an address bar for URLs) when it first launched September 2008.
But Microsoft Edge is now nipping at the heels of the colossal Chrome.
How SEO Ruined the Internet
Today, if you’re looking for something that is technical, specific, academic or generally non-commercial, good frigging luck. The world’s best information retrieval system has devolved into something reminiscent of 2006-era Digg: A popularity index that’s controlled by a small number of commercially motivated players. They call themselves „SEOs.“
Asked Google: Does Searcher Behavior Changes Influence Overall Ranking
A week or so ago, I asked Google’s John Mueller in a video hangout if it is possible that the changes in searcher behavior we are seeing are influencing the overall Google search ranking algorithm. We have been seeing a lot of fluctuations in Google search, so I asked if maybe that is why.
While Google does handle spikes in specific queries differently, such as with QDF and of course custom one boxes and other special search boxes – especially with what we are seeing with COVID-19 searches. Can that influence all queries, even queries outside of the realm of COVID-19.
John Mueller pretty much said no, he said:
I don’t think that would be happening. I mean it’s something where we we always see user behavior shifts and sometimes certain topics become really popular and we try to show the right search results for those kind of things. And this happens all the time like this is one of those things where it probably is a little bit bigger and it’s lasting longer than kind of like the Oscars when they come and go. But these kind of shifts are things that our algorithms have to watch out for it so it’s not something that I’d say would be specific to this this current situation.
