Matt Cutts says “Nooooooo” and wishes he could come through the screen and press your ESC key and Ctrl C and Break, funny guy :-) (he actually is).
According to Mr. Cutts the bottom line is that if you do serve Google one type of content and the user other, it’s cloaking and the “Noooooo” was for that reason. So don’t serve Googlebot content-only (cloak) pages optimized for load speed.
Looks as missed hits may be a thing of the past as Google is bringing in a new version of their analytics code that loads at the top of the page, not at the bottom. This should help marketers understand the gap between what Google reports as clicks in their PPC/AdWords campaigns. The code will be placed as the Body tag opens in the HTML instead in the bottom as it closes.
During a lunch break at the SES NY Nitin Mangtani, Senior Product Manager, Enterprise Search, Google is telling us about their new site search services. The idea is to improve search options on sites. According to a research done by Google around 90% of those that have search options on their sites are unhappy with the results it brings.
