SPOTLIGHT: Google Search Quality Guidelines, Google+ Redesign


What is with the all-Google newsletter?

This is a very light time of year for the digital marketing world. Cyber Monday is a week away, and we’re all watching and remaining ready to react to shifts. There’s always one major shopping surprise.

But Google took advantage of the slow time to release a huge quality document it gives its search raters, re-launched Google+, and rolled out a nifty new feature for users of Google Photos.

If you think Google is influential in the US, where it holds about 2/3 of all search traffic, the company has 97 percent market share in Belgium, France, and Finland and 90 percent across Europe.

And that is what you need to know for this week without the hype. Enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday. We’ll be back bright and early on Cyber Monday!
