Google Sending Warnings To Business Owners: 3 Weeks To Save Their Google Places Listing

Business owners on the Google Business Help forums have reported receiving warning messages from Google encouraging them to update their business information in order to maintain their Google Places listings after February 21, 2014. The email has the subject line: “Action Required: You have 3 weeks to save your Google Places Listing” and cited changes to Google Maps as the reason for these required updates.

Google Drops New Webmaster Guideline On Not Blocking Google Ads

Less than 24 hours after making the change, Google has removed the new clause from their webmaster guidelines. Due to unclear language, the temporary change was removed due to the confusion it caused. While it was included, the controversial clause read: “Make efforts to ensure that a robots.txt file does not block a destination URL for a Google Ad product. Adding such a block can disable or disadvantage the Ad.”

Google Shoots for 10 Gigabit Fiber in Three Years

Internet connection speed in the United States is the slowest of any developed country and Google continues to make strides to rectify the situation. Google CFO Patrick Pichette has recently announced plans to offer a 10 gigabit service – that’s ten times faster than their current offerings – within the next three years. “That’s where the world is going. It’s going to happen…why wouldn’t we make it available in three years? That’s what we’re working on. There’s no need to wait,” he said. (Source)
