Google Tests New Look for “People Also Search For”

Google seems to be testing or launching a new look for the “People Also Search For” feature.

This helps searchers to expand their search queries.

Usually when searchers use Google, they can also see “people also search for”, and some additional search phrases expanding extra search results. This is reported several times, most recently in April 2015.

This update can provide a powerful increase to mobile friendly pages.

“We looked at the mobile visibility for 200 domains for the time frame among April 25th and May 16th, 2016. We only took those domains into account which had a visibility score of at least three points for the Mobile Visibility Index.”

Google Testing Black Links in Search Results

Google Testing Black Links Instead of Blue in Search Results

Google is testing an alternative to its iconic blue links in search results.

Worldwide, Google serves over 1 trillion search results per year, so even a simple color change can provoke a loud response.

When reached for comment, Google was characteristically cryptic. “We’re always running many small-scale experiments with the design of the results page,” a spokesperson told The Verge. “We’re not quite sure that black is the new blue.” Of course, it’s all but certain the new link color is tracking click-through rates. We can’t be sure if the company is simply testing the color, or if the color has something to do with the type of link being displayed, the type of user seeing the link, or what that user is searching. Still, if it does expand to more than a select few people, this could be one of the more radical changes to the relatively austere Google search results page we’ve seen in years.

Besides trying out black links, Google is also testing with diverse shades of blue as well. Business Insider’s Rob Price says that he’s been seeing a lighter blue than usual when not logged into his Chrome browser.

Google’s AI Reads 3000 Romance Novels to Improve Conversational Search

In a bid to improve its conversational search abilities, Google has been reading close to 3000 novels. Google engineers are feeling such huge volumes of romantic novels so that the AI can learn the subtleties of conversational language.

The list of steamy novels fed to the AI include Fatal Desire, Unconditional Love, Ignited, and Jacked Up. Apparently, this exercise is working as well. The team at Google was able to Make the AI write sentences that are similar to the ones in the books.

The aim is to make use of the AI’s language abilities to make Google’s products more human. For instance, Andrew Dai, one of the leads of the novel reading project said – “In the Google app, the responses are very factual,” he continued, “Hopefully with this work, and future work, it can be more conversational, or can have a more varied tone, or style, or register.”

There are other products as well, which can benefit from the AI’s improving language ability. The ‘Smart Reply’ feature of Google Inbox is an example. There are three different smart reply suggestions. There can be improved if the AI’s linguistic abilities are improved.

Eventually, we might see google engaging in deep conversations with us, maybe in a couple of decades.

Google Secures Every Blogspot Domains by Changing it with HTTPS

Recently, Google added an additional security layer to all blogs hosted on its Blogger service by moving blogspot.com to HTTPS.

HTTPS is fundamental to internet security; it protects the integrity and confidentiality of data sent between websites and visitors’ browsers… Today, we’re launching another milestone: an HTTPS version for every blogspot domain blog. With this change, visitors can access any blogspot domain blog over an encrypted channel.”

In September, Google introduced the option to move to HTTPS, but bloggers have to opt in. Now every blog hosted on the platform will have an HTTPS-enabled address by default.

Internet Explorer- Not the Primary Window into the Web Anymore!

Google Chrome won the crown for most popular browser for the first time in nearly two decades.

Google introduced a coding plug-in called “Google Chrome Frame” for Web site developers that instructs Microsoft Internet Explorer browsers to use Google Chrome technologies.

According to the April 2016 report Internet Explorer holds 41.37 percent market share but Chrome holds 41.67 percent.

Internet Explorer is being pushed out by Microsoft itself, which is replaced with Microsoft Edge.

Google Testing Purple Ad Labels On Google Maps

Recently, Google was caught testing green colour search ad labels almost a week ago. They are at it again!

This time, Google testing purple color on “Ad” label found in Maps matching the purple pin noting the advertiser’s location on the map itself.

The purple pin distinguishes it from the red organic pins.

It doesn’t appear to be too malicious or annoying; the locations are accurate, and it will help some businesses to populate their results right to the top.

Google also began testing green “Ad” labels in the main search results a couple of weeks ago. That test appears to be running in most major markets at this point.

Google Search Show Live TV Listings

Google Search Will Show Live TV Listings Soon!

At National Association of Broadcasters conference Google announced that it’s adding a new feature to Google search: air times for TV shows. So, when you search for a show or movie, Google will tell you when it will be available in cable.

Along with this, Google says that DoubleClick, its ad platform is getting better at targeting specific demographics on both live and on-demand TV.

It’s also automating some of the work in choosing which ads air during breaks, “so two automotive ads don’t appear in the same commercial break- and other rules like making sure an alcohol and children’s cereal ad don’t appear in the same commercial break.”

Read Also: Is Google Testing Green “Ad” Labels?

The company says searches for TV shows and films on mobile are up than 55 percent over the past year. Google is on its way to becoming people’s one-stop location on the web for everything they need — even TV listings now. There’s no word on when the update will be rolling out, though the company says “soon”.

This makes using Google for finding places for streaming or buying a show unreliable, and it’s unclear to what extent that will change as the new “live TV” updates roll out.
