| Bing: Mystified about mobile?
Here’s how we see the opportunity
"Searches from mobile devices make up approximately one third of search volume on the Bing Network. [...] Consumers are constantly shifting between devices, and to maintain relevancy, brands must meet consumers at the right point/s on whichever device they chose for that particular moment."
"If your site was hit by a manual action, it may also be hit by an algorithmic penalty and being released from a manual action might help but if your site is also hit by an algorthmic penalty, then you will have to wait for the algorithm to update. [...]
And all that's left is really that the rest of our algorithms how they interact with your website. And some of those algorithms might be looking at similar things that the manual action was looking at."
"Bill Elward spotted a featured snippet in Google that doesn't use the primary content on the page but rather pulls from the comments section of the page. [...]
This is interesting for many reasons: (1) Google should use primary content for their featured snippets, (2) Google should probably not use user generated comments for the snippets, (3) The comment they pulled is in an hidden click to expand area, which Google has said they don't index or rank well."
"Google is adding a new AMP carousel and more AMP-enabled content to its mobile News site and apps. The horizontally scrolling carousel will feature 14 AMP-powered stories. In addition, stories throughout the vertical stream that use AMP will feature a lightning icon."
"The only way page speed impacts a site's rankings in Google is if the site is unbearably slow. If your site is a drop faster than the next, it won't rank a drop higher than the next. But if your site is incredibly slow, Google may demote the site. [...]
Yesterday, Gary Illyes from Google told a webmaster not to 'worry about it too much,' when it comes to page speed."
