Google Gives HTTPS Pages Preference by Default

Over time Google’s way of measuring SEO friendliness has changed several times. The Panda, the Penguin, The Pirate, The Mobilegeddon - you name it. To provide its users with an even better experience, including online security - HTTP vs HTTPS - has been a trendy topic lately. For a while Google’s own pages: Gmail, Google Search and YouTube have all been HTTPS sites - and from now on, I think it’s time for you all to consider changing to a secure connection.

Bing's Search Trends for 2015

Several times before I’ve spoken about Google, Yahoo and Bing - Google being the main (and for many of us, the only) search engine. But recently things seem to have happened, especially from Bing’s side, and the company behind them, Microsoft.

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about them launching their own Mobile Friendly Test tool, in similarity to Google earlier this year - and just a few days ago they released their top search queries for 2015, sorted by different categories. Another interesting and exciting happening from their side.

Bing Mobile Friendly Test Tool Goes Live

Generally speaking, there are three main search engines: Google, Bing and Yahoo. Don’t get me wrong, there are more search engines available, I know, for example Yandex (popular in Eastern Europe), Baidu (common among Asian users) and many more. But they are all secondary. Even more so, when talking about "a search engine”, we’re usually talking about Google. The biggest and most popular of all available search engines. Therefore, I am going to talk about Bing today, and their newly launched Mobile Friendliness Test Tool. Even the competitors should get some media space - not only, "the one”, Google.
