Google Search API documents leaked

Rand Fishkin of Sparktoro (ex Moz) has written a great piece explaining what these are and what we can learn from them.
Here are the main headings of the article:

  • Navboost and the use of clicks, CTR, long vs. short clicks, and user data
  • Use of Chrome browser clickstreams to power Google Search
  • Whitelists in Travel, Covid, and Politics
  • Employing Quality Rater Feedback
  • Google Uses Click Data to Determine How to Weight Links in Rankings

If you’re short of time, skip to the Big Picture Takeaways for Marketers Who Care About Organic Search Traffic part.

38% of webpages that existed in 2013 are no longer accessible a decade later

Interesting article from the Pew Research Center:

When Online Content Disappears

However, there’s no big conspiracy here:

In most cases, this is because an individual page was deleted or removed on an otherwise functional website.

The article covers links on government and news sites, as well as referencing a surivival analysis of Twitter / X posts:

  • 1% of tweets are removed within one hour
  • 3% within a day
  • 10% within a week
  • 15% within a month

WP Engine news: Introducing the New WP Engine

“We’re elevating our brand identity with a new framework to create a seamless, unified experience for all!”

I haven’t had a proper look at this but it seems to be a ‘put the brand house in order’ type of exercise, starting with a tweak of the logo which now makes more sense.

Storyblok’s State of CMS 2024 report

It makes an interesting read, and there are 6 references to WordPress.

You have to submit your details to get the report. But worth it:

Event: Monetization Week – Charting Publisher Success

A State of Digital Publishing event is coming up soon: 21 – 27 May, Online

The program features five days of 1-hour sessions: presentations, panels, and workshops. You can register for a single session or the entire event.

I’m unsure if it’s free or not. I can’t find any pricing. Either way, State of Digital Publishing events are always great. If you are a publisher they are a ‘must-attend’ event.

Breakdance builder pricing set to change

Louis Reingold, CEO @ Soflyy, is giving the community advance notice of price changes:

As we look ahead, we want to keep you informed about upcoming changes to our packages and pricing. Around the time the first public beta of Breakdance 2.0 is released, we’ll probably be adjusting our pricing plans for new customers. However, existing customers will be grandfathered into their current plans indefinitely. Anyone who purchases before the price changes will also retain their existing rates. We’re giving you this advance notice because we value your loyalty and want to ensure you’re aware of the opportunity to secure your pricing indefinitely.
