The antitrust continuing will seemingly hold Google legal professionals busy for a couple of years, however might even have main instant penalties – for Mozilla, amongst others. The developer of Firefox has now spoken and can also be not very excited concerning the proceedings which have now been introduced towards Google. Whereas the examination of the market energy of huge companies is welcome, the motion towards Google's net search is unsuitable. Google additionally known as it very flawed on an preliminary response.

As Google search within the Firefox browser has been explicitly talked about, Mozilla is anxious that it might trigger collateral harm. Firefox is a manner for Google to make search extra extensively out there on the net – and that's precisely what it’s, amongst others. Mozilla is now prone to worry that Google might cease paying for its personal enterprise and not purchase the place of the usual search engine. As Google has proven, customers would come again to Google in droves anyway. To be able to save your self this.

For Mozilla, however, half a billion {dollars} a yr is at least 90% of the gross sales you generate. In different phrases: if Google turns off the faucet, the lights exit at Mozilla …

Transcription

Markus Hövener: Sure, there we’re. Welcome to Search Camp. Glad you’re right here. Right this moment I’m not alone, I’ve a visitor for an interview as soon as a month and immediately I’ve Sven Deutschländer with me, so not bodily with me, however the place are you now

Sven Deutschländer: In Berlin in our workplace and there I’m sitting in a separate room on their own with you.

Markus Hövener: Simply checked out it once more, your LinkedIn entry says you’re the website positioning skilled in Berlin.

Sven Deutschländer: I agree.

Markus Hövener: Since January 2010, so for greater than ten years. You do seminars, workshops, lots on the subject of website positioning, but additionally Google Adverts and all the things associated to it.

Sven Deutschländer: Sure precisely. Social media, even electronic mail advertising, is all that many understand to be alien. However for us that is an integral a part of the company, as we even have a division that does nothing all day however takes care of shopper electronic mail advertising.

Markus Hövener: Didn't you even say you even do fax advertising?

Sven Deutschländer: Sure, precisely, this yr. So if that sounds to anybody now, a bit of later within the yr we're speaking about proper now, 2020, the coronavirus, pandemic yr, is far more than ever earlier than, as if just about all of this Disaster state of affairs would result in this Again to the roots, some folks actually began to say that the quickest method is to fax folks. And we despatched extra faxes this yr than we’ve in lots of, a few years.

Markus Hövener: Spectacular.

Sven Deutschländer: Loopy, actually loopy.

Markus Hövener: So long as you don't ship homing pigeons or fortune cookies, you may nonetheless achieve this.

Sven Deutschländer: I agree. One thing like that.

Markus Hövener: We now have gathered right here immediately as a result of we need to speak about Google My Enterprise. I do know it’s a coronary heart downside for you too.

Sven Deutschländer: Mhm (affirmative).

Markus Hövener: Not less than now I've seen you at varied conferences and also you all the time have some cool stuff with you. So that you clearly are somebody who could be very actively in search of this, aren't you?

Sven Deutschländer: Sure. It has a bit of to do with the truth that the company does a variety of work for small and medium-sized companies which, as service suppliers, typically have an area or regional focus. And that's why all of this, let's name it native advertising of an internet enterprise, is such an enormous factor for us. And that is the place Google My Enterprise nonetheless performs an essential function as a key native space within the Google search engine. And simply as he was a bit of on the sidelines for some time since you thought you needed to discover Google+, he got here again after the Google+ failure. And in 2020, as a result of complete coronavirus pandemic, an insane variety of options have been added as a result of all of those native companies instantly had much more communication wants or particular communication wants. And it has introduced a variety of new challenges for individuals who need to take care of Google My Enterprise. And due to that, I've most likely spoken about it six or seven occasions already this yr at one thing just like a convention and I've already printed one or the opposite article from that. # 39; visitor on this.

Markus Hövener: At first I used to be questioning if we must always briefly clarify what Google My Enterprise actually is.

Sven Deutschländer: Mhm (affirmative). Sure, we are able to for anybody who's actually recent listening or who hasn't been an issue but. Google Maps, all of us use it, and if we don't use Google Maps, then another navigation software program. And each navigation software program has little pins i.e. retailer areas on the map and so they need to get there a technique or one other. And for that there’s a service, that layer above it’s managed by a service, and it's typically simply referred to as a spot service. It's accessible from all kinds of distributors, all of that are acquainted right here who hear, Tripadvisor has this and Yelp has that and which is accessible on Bing and which can also be accessible on Google. And that administrative degree for these locations, for these pins on the maps, is named Google My Enterprise on Google.

Markus Hövener: Doesn't value something both, so an excellent instrument.

Sven Deutschländer: Nothing in any respect. I agree. Sure, we’ve to get again to the information now.

Markus Hövener: Sure, we do, we are going to.

Sven Deutschländer: I agree.

Markus Hövener: Let's begin with the fundamentals.

Sven Deutschländer: Accurately.

Markus Hövener: I imply, let's check out the brand new options. Assuming you're the dentist across the nook and taking a look at Google My Enterprise, what are you going to get proper first?

Sven Deutschländer: Once you first open this backend, whether or not or not you do it in your smartphone, increasingly enterprise homeowners are doing all the things simply with the smartphone app supplied by Google for it. administration of My Enterprise, or if I do it I all the time do it within the traditional method on the desktop, there’s a navigation and within the navigation there’s a essential level in which you’ll accommodate all the fundamental issues, and this Is the knowledge space. And that simply consists of my enterprise title, which is ideally spelled precisely the identical method as within the authorized discover on my web site. Select a class, then what am I? So on this case it seems like a dentist. Then you choose dentist because the class. In our case it might be one thing like on-line advertising corporations, for instance, which might be a class. I enter the handle and a map part seems subsequent to it and I may also examine on the map part if the pin is in the appropriate place when somebody lays it down. look on Google Maps. You possibly can really transfer this pin. If it's such a giant workplace constructing and it has three entrances, you may actually transfer this pin to the place the doorway to the home is you could enter, so you will get the appropriate staircase eg. Then the opening hours are part of it. And these opening hours shouldn’t be left clean. So in the event you're not like a dentist who really has hours of operation for the general public, businesses don't essentially need to, if you’re as an alternative somebody who’s bodily there and who solutions the telephone i all the time say so put on them there Enterprise hours telephone availability. After which there’s something like telephone quantity, web handle, a brief description of the corporate, i.e. 750 characters you may enter there. And as a ultimate level, which is a problem for both, an inventory of photographs you must add for enterprise. And the view from the surface, so folks will know what the home seems like from the surface, the place this enterprise is inside. The view from the within, i.e. on the steps and what it seems like within the retailer itself. For instance, the foyer or reception space within the workplace or within the apply rooms. Then you can too obtain the workforce in order for you. I’m all the time a giant fan of exhibiting who works in your online business. You possibly can add conditions at work as photographs and issues that merely make clear your id. So, the corporate brand, if there may be one, and a canopy picture that represents that profile. That is the fundamental info that you must completely obtain as a foundation into the system.

Markus Hövener: In fact that can also be essential, I imply SEOs don't realize it in a different way, there are pointers. Because of this now I can after all name myself as an organization Heinz Meyer Fußpfleger Berlin GmbH. You'd already say, don't, proper?

Sven Deutschländer: Now we come to an space, so I all the time reply that, are you a person entrepreneur or are you a GmbH, is all the time my first query. Sole proprietorship, enterprise is definitely referred to as as sole proprietor, i.e. first title, final title. And that will after all not be notably helpful right here, as only a few can be in search of Andreas Meyer. And he’s really, what do I do know, a podiatrist, let's stick to the instance. It's a cell foot care service or one thing. Then I might write the Andreas Meyer cell foot care service within the web site imprint, the place I simply need to retailer this full details about my enterprise. As a result of it’s the cross examine carried out by this content material moderator when it’s checked. Then I can switch it one after the other to this account. With us as an company we’re dskom GmbH, as a rule, I might write this firm title cleanly. I can after all use the identical "trick", in quotes, overwriting it in a line. the right entry within the business register is that he doesn't have time to examine it, that he doesn't actually perceive, after which you can be okay with it. I additionally see very various things which have been printed. After which I all the time say, I used to be fortunate, clear and easy. Nicely, I just lately took an instance the place the corporate title was 250 characters lengthy and it had key phrases like 'Study English in Hamburg'. And it was printed anyway. And I ask, did the content material moderator sleep throughout the coaching? Due to course others sneak up on them instantly and say, I need it too, how do I get it? And the reply is: you may strive it. There are two choices, it is going to be unblocked or your account will probably be blocked. And now what you do depends upon your private danger taking. Are you enjoying by the foundations or are you attempting in a different way?

Markus Hövener: The truth is, like common SEOs, you all the time have to consider how far I'm going.

Sven Deutschländer: I agree. It's like that right here too.

Markus Hövener: I’ve now jotted down a couple of factors, I imply I additionally comply with Google My Enterprise very carefully. We wish all the things within the huge image, so the title is form of like our working title "New Options, Cooler Leaderboards, Extra Gross sales". I've picked a couple of issues, matters, the place we are able to speak about this now. The primary matter will seemingly be coated pretty shortly, which is all of those COVID-19 features. Thrilling or not thrilling?

Sven Deutschländer: There are some things that I discover thrilling as a result of they’ll stand the check of time. So they’ll survive this disaster state of affairs and won’t solely be fascinating proper now in 2020, 2021. That is for anybody now in search of these COVID-19 features, that are all the time referred to as that method and which can be totally different in a while, is discovered within the begin space, each on the app and within the desktop model. And there’s something like, for instance, the provision of the service. Is your online business open in the mean time? Sure. Can the providers be used on website? Sure or no. Do you additionally supply on-line appointments? Sure or no. After which, in the event you additionally say sure, you may first make an appointment with us on-line, you may have the choice to drop a hyperlink to entry such on-line appointment calendar, in the event you ought to have already got one. And it’s actually a operate, this availability of service, which can stay everlasting. I'm fairly positive of it. This replace on COVID-19, so I’ve such a particular submit that’s all the time above all different posts on the Google My Enterprise profile, will disappear once more. It’s then alerted a bit with a triangle with an exclamation mark in it. This can undoubtedly be thrown out once more sooner or later. What will certainly stay, nevertheless, is getting buyer help. On the one hand, you may request donations on your personal challenge, your personal enterprise, and however, you may promote reward playing cards immediately by way of the Google My Enterprise account, in every case by way of companions who’ve them there. The commonest and well-known companion on the earth remains to be PayPal, which is concerned. I agree.

Markus Hövener: I seen one other matter: the labels. There are issues like “ladies in cost”. However is there no "dominated by males"?

Sven Deutschländer: Sure precisely. This label is the most well-liked label ever. If nobody has a label in any respect, then he's received this story with 'led by ladies' in there. Oddly sufficient, these items are referred to as, all of us name them tags, as a result of that is the unique title, in the event you look within the backend it’s really the "Highlights" level, which is then used because the title whenever you click on Highlights Time period "attributes". You notice once more that the person expertise on Google has by no means been higher, and it’s confirmed once more right here. So attributes, labels, highlights, it's all the time the identical. And within the meantime, there are extra customary highlights, as they’ve launched such an space once more due to the expertise of COVID-19, 'Security and Well being', everybody has it now. Do you want a date? For instance, if it is a public institution: is the temperature measured upon entry? Is a protecting masks essential when coming into the premises? Do staff put on protecting masks? Then there are additionally these service choices, which have already been queried on the house web page, that are repeated right here, together with on-line appointments and if there may be service on website as nicely. After which it has class particular attributes. For instance, in eating places that is all the time the most typical, so: are you able to even have vegan choices right here? Do I’ve to e-book right here? Are there unisex bogs? Are the bogs additionally accessible to the disabled? And so forth. And all of those attributes are initially provided solely to the enterprise proprietor. Provided means in the event you look inside there’s a "+" in entrance of the attribute, after which you must determine, in the event you press the "+" as soon as, the plus turns right into a examine mark. And which means sure, it applies to me and will present up in my Google My Enterprise profile in Maps sooner or later. If I press it once more, the hook turns into a cease image, a circle crossed by a line. And which means the attribute doesn't apply to me, please don't use it in my profile pricey Google. And so I can just about undergo the entire attributes which are steered to me from prime to backside and nonetheless use that space for myself. And on the entrance, the person really sees it as an additional little marker, which is commonly backed up by a inexperienced examine mark on the entrance.

Markus Hövener: However there are solely ready-made labels, so I can't simply make a potato pad myself and say, I'm now 'run by males'?

Sven Deutschländer: No, sadly no. Sure precisely. No, there isn’t a provision.

Markus Hövener: Sure what a disgrace

Sven Deutschländer: Oh, by the best way, both one all the time desires to know the place these items come from? So some are created by the system, some I feel are a bit of AI managed, they learn it from a variety of profiles, descriptions after which they simply recommend it to customers. That is whenever you stroll previous a retailer as a Google Maps person after which that push message goes to "Had been you within the retailer? We now have 5 questions for you."

Markus Hövener: Sure precisely.

Sven Deutschländer: These questions are requested of customers first and if numerous customers, with no concept what number of, reply positively to such a query then the wording seems within the backend for the proprietor of the positioning. firm and he can lastly determine if it needs to be displayed. or not.

Markus Hövener: I nonetheless have a protracted checklist right here, the chat function.

Sven Deutschländer: Sure, the chat operate. For instance, I haven't checked out my mobile phone for therefore lengthy that I’ve lengthy puzzled if I ought to use this chat function due to course in the event you flip it on you may solely flip it on by way of smartphone utility, which is on the desktop. -Unplanned space, then you need to react shortly. If anybody writes one thing, a response ought to are available a minute or two. In gastronomy, for instance, that is clearly used very intensively as a result of they all the time have the factor with them, it shakes or vibrates, they see that somebody is asking "Is there a desk with you on this? second?" replied. In the event you reply shortly, additionally, you will get this as a bit of textual content trace in entrance of your Google Maps entry so the person will know, often react inside two minutes. After which I even have a really, very direct alternative to ascertain preliminary communication with potential clients, who’re really nearly on their option to my retailer, just like WhatsApp Enterprise or Fb Messenger.

Markus Hövener: The questions / solutions are most likely entering into a really comparable route?

Sven Deutschländer: Sure. And the Q&A have been by no means supposed for the enterprise proprietor, however are literally meant to be some type of 'user-generated content material' merchandise in Google Maps. So if somebody as a person is form of a vacationer and right here in Berlin, and so they don't understand how crowded the TV tower is, " Is there lots happening? Do I’ve to e-book tickets on-line? Then the person can ask that query and different customers ought to reply it. Google then sends push notifications to customers who’ve already rated this location after which asks them, "You, somebody requested a query." Are you able to assist and reply the query? "That’s the primary concept. And now, after all, the advertising concept of ​​methods to use it once we're us. As a Google Maps person, I'm simply asking myself one query and I reply it with the opposite account. Very simply. So I can’t solely use these questions and solutions for the numerous nonsense that’s generally put to the person, which after all I can answering questions like google maps, however solely within the backend it doesn't work, for google my enterprise proprietor shouldn’t be speculated to take part in q & a however i'm nonetheless a google maps person and like this i can after all give this a person reply, a person that’s unusual to me, and naturally I may also ask questions myself Reply these questions. After which there’s a thumb below every query, so you may virtually say this is a crucial query that needs to be voted excessive. And you then let your mates and acquaintances vote on your personal essential FAQs, in order that they're the primary to be discovered up there within the seen space and the remainder, all of the issues the loopy generally ask after which slip down into the world that isn’t instantly seen.

Markus Hövener: Haven't seen it typically sufficient now that, particularly with museums and the like, that persons are asking questions and the neighborhood shouldn’t be answering these questions correctly. And that's why I nonetheless discover it essential that you just, because the proprietor, check out it.

Sven Deutschländer: Accurately. However persons are desperately in search of the place within the backend the place they’ll reply and the reply isn’t any, foreground so within the Maps app you must reply as a person. And I all the time inform folks, you may formally say that you’re now the boss of the shop, so this participation, no less than whoever reads it is aware of for positive that their info should be appropriate, no matter occurs simply writes about it for nonsense.

Markus Hövener: Let's transfer on to Google Posts. How do you want them? Or simply say what it’s.

Sven Deutschländer: Posts or Google My Enterprise Posts is an try and make a type of little Fb information feed attainable in Google enterprise profiles. And I'm a fan of it, as a result of you could find a lot that may't be discovered wherever else on this Google My Enterprise profile, with such content material that you may put it there. You possibly can simply submit easy information there which, if it is usually related to a really particular service or product, additionally offers the likelihood to simply point out and describe merchandise, providers, and add a photograph for it, not solely obtain a picture, but additionally a video, if essential, as contributions will be accompanied by a picture in addition to a video. As well as, the occasions will be uploaded as particular contributions, i.e. for us who recurrently promote, for instance, seminars and workshops on mounted dates, we are able to additionally hyperlink all these workshops to the web site, the place the workshop can then be bought immediately, as one. submit such a message there. Short-term provides for retailers, i.e. within the purchasing space, will be saved there. And all these particular tales which are presently in movement concerning the corona disaster. So this replace and help with reward playing cards and donations. And it may also be carried out in a really, very strategic method, whether or not you submit issues there, submit it in a focused style, put together it as info that couldn't be included wherever else right here. After which I received the possibility to essentially get into it. As a result of Google principally makes something saved wherever in that My Enterprise entry classifiable in a technique or one other.

Markus Hövener: However the issue with Google Posts is that they don't final perpetually.

Sven Deutschländer: Sure. By the best way, they final perpetually, however they don’t seem to be highlighted perpetually. So if we now think about the desktop interface, there's nonetheless the Google entry on the appropriate facet, and after I submit any information, some form of information carousel seems in that Google entry like by magic. These are small tiles the place every information merchandise has its personal tile. And flat information, that’s, easy information, can solely be discovered for seven days on this tile carousel. An occasion and a suggestion will be discovered on this carousel till the occasion has taken place or the supply has reached its expiration date. However in the event you click on someplace in that carousel besides on the decision to motion, then that carousel reopens individually in some type of information feed that’s positioned on the feed. # 39; display screen. And whenever you scroll down there, all of the messages are there, together with those which are not seen in that carousel after seven days. So issues are everlasting within the system, solely on this carousel, for which an expiration date applies. And with regular customary mail it’s seven days, with all different mail varieties it’s all the time the occasion or supply expiration date.

Markus Hövener: Now there have been a couple of social adjustments in the previous couple of months ie I can now, for instance, it impacts extra Google Maps and never a lot Google My Enterprise, I can comply with a enterprise , ie google maps entry, I may also comply with an area information. Do you discover it thrilling in any method?

Sven Deutschländer: It’s nonetheless the try and have social media in any case. So it's been a very long time since I've been saying my fluffy mouth that you just shouldn't perceive this as a navigation app anymore, nevertheless it does, and you may clearly see that in such options their try and shift from the again to the Eye neck to have an app on folks's telephones that appears extra like what Fb or Pinterest or Instagram or TikTok is. Except that is your direct space or the holiday you go. After which a technique or one other after all I'm huge gamers on this app as nicely. And for a very long time, for a superb yr now, there was the choice of following corporations, though I’ve now seen that it doesn't appear attainable with all corporations anymore. I’ve now seen corporations the place the comply with button has disappeared on cellphones. After which I didn't perceive precisely why it’s now. Nicely I’ve a query mark proper now. However they just lately introduced that each one these native guides, that’s, these individuals who actively take part within the system as customers of Google Maps, as a result of they add photographs there, as a result of that they add movies, as a result of they write evaluations, as a result of they offer evaluations, as a result of They’re proactively creating new companies that haven’t been created but, get factors for them and are enticed in an effort to simply comply with these influencers in Google Maps to see what one another is discovering in new locations. and the way he rated these locations and what photographs he uploaded. I'm two or three folks, I'm my favourite locations, I already do, I'm a kind of native guides, however I see very regular folks in lots of people so I all the time use of us like my sister or mum for example, for whom this is only one app amongst many, they don't know something about this program, simply regular mortals. There's nonetheless an incredible quantity, I feel, that Google wants to speak much more with regular folks and never simply these digital nerds such as you and me, for instance, in order that it may be used much more extensively.

Markus Hövener: I nonetheless have two objects on the checklist, and the primary one can be: Merchandise and Companies that I can add to Google My Enterprise as nicely.

Sven Deutschländer: I agree. Now nearly has advantages so each depend upon in case you have these waypoints in your backend in Google My Enterprise, it depends upon the class I chosen. That is essential info. I've seen that "Companies" has now been deployed very extensively as a navigation level. Currently, except for the hospitality business, which is principally not allowed to place something in Google My Enterprise besides for putting advertisements, which is a really nasty quantity, I feel 'providers' are actually categorized in nearly all classes. Haven't seen an entrance for a very long time, aside from accommodations that don't have this level. The merchandise, I’ve a sense, are half, half. For instance, I nonetheless don't have any merchandise activated in my profile, despite the fact that I’m promoting merchandise. Mais je viens d&#39;avoir une session avec un avocat qui a des produits, même si un avocat est vraiment très, très loin des «produits». Donc je n&#39;ai aucune idée de pourquoi. C&#39;est une selected, non pas que les gens soient déçus quand ils entendent cela et le recherchent désespérément. Donc, si ce n&#39;est tout simplement pas là, vous devrez probablement être affected person. Je pense que tôt ou tard, cela sera accessible à presque tout le monde une fois déployé très largement. Et puis, quand j&#39;ai cela, je vais à cet élément de menu Bureau sur le côté gauche et là je trouve toutes les catégories que j&#39;ai sélectionnées, écrites les unes au-dessus des autres, et je peux maintenant ajouter des providers à chacune de ces catégories. Lorsque je clique sur "Ajouter des providers", Google fait des strategies que je peux utiliser, mais je peux aussi les ignorer. Et, si je veux les ignorer, il suffit de cliquer sur «ajouter mon propre service» là-bas, alors j&#39;ai un texte libre où je peux nommer les providers, par exemple «website positioning Company Berlin». Dann speichere ich die Dienstleistung ab und wenn die abgespeichert ist, dann habe ich sogar eine Möglichkeit, das noch zu konkretisieren, indem ich dann lustigerweise noch einmal auf sie klicken muss, ich kann das nicht in einem Arbeitsschritt machen, UX by way of Google lässt wieder grüßen, und dann erscheint wie von Zauberhand ein Feld, in dem ich eine bis zu 300 Zeichen lange Beschreibung zu dieser Dienstleistung hinzufügen kann und auch einen Preis, wenn ich das möchte, sofern es da einen festen Preis gibt und ich den kommunizieren magazine. Dann speichere ich das wieder ab. Und das mache ich jetzt einfach für jede Kategorie, der ordne ich dann einfach entsprechende Leistungen zu. Und mit Produkten ist das dann ganz ähnlich. Bin ich halt ein Einzelhändler oder bin ich, was weiß ich, auch ein Physiotherapeut im Zweifelsfall und habe klar umrissene Produkte, dann kann ich den Produktbereich benutzen, dort ein neues Produkt hinzufügen, kann ein Produktbild, einen Produktnamen, eine Produktbeschreibung, ich kann einen Produktpreis, wenn ich das möchte, ich kann sogar dann dort, was bei Dienstleistungen nicht geht, einen Hyperlink zum Produkt auf meiner Webseite hinzufügen und das abspeichern. Produkte ist viel geiler als Leistungen, weil Produkte werden dann, sobald sie angelegt wurden, genauso wie die Google My Enterprise Postings als ein zusätzliches Karussell vorne auf der Erstansicht des Google Maps Profils angezeigt. Die Leistungen werden „nur“, in Anführungszeichen, in einem Karteireiter auf der Smartphone-Model von Google Maps angezeigt. Hier gilt wieder Key phrases, Key phrases, Key phrases, Key phrases. Additionally richtig schön so schreiben wie ich einen Textual content verfassen würde, wenn ich auf die Dienstleistung, die bename ich so wie die Suchanfrage zur Dienstleistung und dann eine 300 Zeichen Kurzbeschreibung, die kurz wie eine Meta Description, nur in etwas verlängerter Kind, auf den Punkt bringt, worum es da geht.

Markus Hövener: Dann hätte ich noch den letzten Punkt, über den wir am Anfang schon ein bisschen gelacht haben. Hintergrund ist natürlich, Google ist ein amerikanisches Unternehmen, ist ein börsennotiertes Unternehmen, man muss Geld verdienen und es gibt eine Bezahlauktion, nämlich für Google Assured, ist in Deutschland nicht verfügbar, deswegen wenn ihr das jetzt hört.

Sven Deutschländer: Nein, und das ist grad ganz, ganz, ganz, ganz frisch. Es ist jetzt verfügbar.

Markus Hövener: Krass.

Sven Deutschländer: Seit drei oder vier Tagen. Ich habe darüber getwittert und muss jetzt trotzdem leider den Tweet aufrufen. Ich bitte um Entschuldigung, weil ich es nicht mehr ganz zusammenkriege, wie es exakt heißt. Jetzt habe ich was gemacht, Second mal kurz. Ja, da muss ich hin und dir das rauspicken, damit ich da nichts Falsches sage. „Mein Profil“ aufrufen. Und zwar hat es jetzt einen deutschen Namen, es heißt offiziell Google Lokale Dienstleistungen.

Markus Hövener: Krass.

Sven Deutschländer: Genau. Und der grüne Haken ist auch ins Deutsche übersetzt worden. Da, wo im Englischen es heißt Google Assured, wird wohl bei uns in Deutschland Google Käuferschutz stehen. Denn tatsächlich ist das ja so, das ist die Grundidee, du kaufst dich da in ein Programm ein, wo Google prüft, ob du echt bist. Additionally ein bisschen sowas wie eine „Ehrbarer Kaufmann“-Prüfung. Und dann garantiert Google praktisch, dass wenn du da was bezahlst bei diesem Dienstleister als Nutzer und du nicht zufrieden bist, dann kriegst du das Geld von Google zurück. So soll das gewissermaßen laufen. Ich habe das Google Assured anfangs gar nicht so richtig verstanden, und jetzt, als die deutsche Beschreibung. Es gibt auch schon einen deutschen Hilfetext dazu zu diesem Google Lokale Dienstleistungen. Und dann muss ich 50 Greenback oder höchstwahrscheinlich bei uns dann 50 Euro professional Monat dafür zahlen muss, wenn ich diesen Bewerbungsprozess durchlaufen bin und dafür freigeschaltet wurde, damit mir dann dieser grüne Haken in „Mein Profil“ dargestellt wird. Und es ist im Second nur für eine, was weiß ich, anderthalb Handvoll Branchen freigeschaltet in Deutschland. Für Elektriker zum Beispiel und für Dachdecker und Klempner, für Heizung, Lüftung, Sanitär, additionally die üblichen Verdächtigen. So Wasserschaden, Fensterreinigung, Garagentore lustigerweise auch, Geräte-Reparaturdienst, hier die Waschmaschinen-Fuzzis und solche Sachen halt. Die Liste ist auch auf dieser Seite abgebildet, die da Google im Help-Bereich jetzt onlinegestellt hat zu diesem Dienst. Und der Clou ist, und das ist halt das Fiese, wenn sich da jetzt Leute gefunden haben, die an dem Programm teilnehmen und dafür freigeschaltet wurden, dann werden die über den normalen Google My Enterprise, additionally Google Maps Ergebnissen dargestellt. Da gibt es einen further Bereich. Additionally bisher habe ich nur aus dem amerikanischen Raum Screenshots gesehen. Da steht dann halt sowas wie Elektriker in deiner Nähe oben drüber und ganz klein nebendran „Sponsored“. Und dann hast du erst mal diese Google Assured, diese Google Lokale Dienstleister Auslieferung in der Google-Suchergebnisseite, die steht ganz oben. Dann kommen die Adverts. Dann kommt der ganz normale lokale Bereich Google My Enterprise und dann kommt der erste organische Treffer. Da brauchst du irgendwann überhaupt gar keine website positioning mehr machen. Da bist du dann, was weiß ich, der wievielte bist du dann, wenn du das durchzählst? 1, 2, three in Google Assured, dann bis zu four Adverts, sind schon mal 7, dann der Kartenausschnitt 8, dann noch three Texteinträge Google Maps, 9, 10, 11. Dann ist additionally der erste organische Platz 12 in der Liste.

Markus Hövener: Aber das heißt ja eigentlich, additionally erstmal Gesamtkosten sind dann irgendwie 600 Greenback oder Euro.

Sven Deutschländer: Ja.

Markus Hövener: Aber wenn jetzt in einer Branche 100 Leute das machen, dann hast du ja wieder nichts davon, oder?

Sven Deutschländer: Ich habe keine Ahnung, wie das geregelt wird. Additionally so wie sie das ja in anderen Systemen einführen, gibt es dann irgendwie ein High quality Rating? Das sind Fragen über Fragen. Additionally wir werden da, additionally keine Ahnung. Aber das wird sich dann demnächst auch schon finden. Additionally wenn sich das so richtig Hardcore durchsetzt, haben sie da eine unfassbare Einnahmequelle, meiner Meinung nach, gefunden. Weil bisher sind sie an die ganzen Lokalen nicht rangekommen.

Markus Hövener: Na, das ist falsch, es gab AdWords Specific.

Sven Deutschländer: Ja intestine, aber ehrlich, du weißt, wir kennen natürlich lauter Leute, die das gemacht haben, weil die irgendwann merken, dass das zu nichts führt und dann zu uns kommen und sagen, kann ich das irgendwie besser haben. Aber ich glaube, diese Menschen sind, gemessen gegen die Gesamtmenge der lokalen Dienstleister sind es halt verschwindend wenig Leute, die jemals Google Adverts geschaltet haben. Und da, dieses Advert Produkt, das will sicherlich irgendwann jeder haben. Ich glaube, das ist eine reelle Probability für die, einen Kundenstamm zu erreichen, der bisher verhältnismäßig schwer für sie erreichbar warfare.

Markus Hövener: Und dann kannst du jemandem Gold, Silber, Bronze anbieten und hast dann noch was dran und hier kriegst du noch ein Poster mit geschenkt.

Sven Deutschländer: Und dann ist es immer, additionally auch bei mir, leichtfertig dahingesetzt und gesagt, und das alles ist kostenlos nutzbar. Damit ist es dann dahin.

Markus Hövener: Immerhin, ja, es ist kostenlos nutzbar, es bringt dir halt nichts.

Sven Deutschländer: Ja, oder es bringt dir …, ja stimmt, okay.

Markus Hövener: Oder halt in speziellen Branchen. Additionally wenn es jetzt so ist, dass Google Assured dann, ich sag mal, wirklich nur für Fliesenleger und Rohrverleger ist, aber für Zahnärzte nicht, dann wäre es ja egal. Aber ich meine, Google wäre ja einfach nur komplett dämlich, wenn sie das nicht heben würden, diesen Schatz, den sie da wirklich haben.

Sven Deutschländer: Auf der einen Seite stimme ich dir zu, aber auf der anderen Seite, wir haben schon das ein oder andere Mal erlebt, dass sie auch dämlich sein können.

Markus Hövener: Ja, dass sie vielleicht wenig Glück hatten bei der Umsetzung ihrer Strategien, da stimmt. Ja.

Sven Deutschländer: Additionally von daher ist es nicht ausgeschlossen, dass es wirklich nur … Additionally ich weiß zum Beispiel, warum sowas wie Gerätereparaturdienste dabei sind. Du weißt es höchstwahrscheinlich auch. Es gibt einfach so viele Verbrecher in diesem Eck.

Markus Hövener: Ja klar.

Sven Deutschländer: Und die versuchen praktisch, glaube ich, da ein bisschen dagegen zu steuern, weil einfach durch Content material-Moderation kriegen die das nicht komplett in den Griff in Google My Enterprise. Du siehst einfach diese ganzen Faux-Einträge. Und die versuchen da natürlich ihr bestes, aber es ist wahnsinnig schwer. Und in diesen Branchen kannst du einfach, wenn du die Echten, die bereit sind zu zahlen und die dann noch mal separat geprüft werden, wenn du die einfach drüber schiebst in so einem Karussell, dann hast du die Faker, die du vielleicht nicht in den Griff kriegst, ein Stück weiter in der Liste runtergedrückt. Vielleicht ist das auch einfach nur das Anliegen und es geht tatsächlich nicht um Ärzte oder so. Aber wir beide wissen es eigentlich besser, es geht nur um die Kohle.

Markus Hövener: Ja. Am Ende des Tages wird es wohl so ein. Wobei, aus diesem Geld kann man ja auch einen Vorteil ziehen für sich, deswegen ist es eher ein Funding vielleicht.

Sven Deutschländer: Und ehrlich, 600 Glocken ist in den meisten dieser Bereiche, in denen das im Second ausgespielt wird, im Jahr Peanuts.

Markus Hövener: Ja klar. Wenn du nur einen Kunden kriegst da drüber, ein Mehr hast du schon raus.

Sven Deutschländer: Genau.

Markus Hövener: Deswegen ist es quick geschenkt und deswegen glaube ich auch, dass sie bei dem Preislevel natürlich nicht bleiben werden. Das ist vielleicht so wie manche Preisvergleiche, professional Kategorie hast du halt andere Preise vielleicht einfach. Aber das werden wir dann sehen. Ich glaube, das wird noch Jahre dauern.

Sven Deutschländer: Genau.

Markus Hövener: Weil so wahnsinnig agil, additionally ich habe schon den Eindruck, dass Google My Enterprise, dass da viel passiert, dass sie viel Kleinscheiß und so machen, aber so der große strategische Wurf, den kann ich jetzt irgendwie nicht so richtig erkennen.

Sven Deutschländer: Dieses Jahr 2020, in dem wir das hier grad aufnehmen, hat da wahnsinnig viel beschleunigt. Sie haben verstanden, dass die Innovationszyklen, die bis 2019 in diesem Bereich herrschten, dass die nicht mehr funktionieren. Ich glaube auch nicht, dass sie zu einem langsameren Zyklus zurückkehren werden. Es gibt eigentlich in diesem Lokalbereich so wahnsinnig viele Dinge, die man noch machen könnte, und wo auch bei denen noch eine Menge Geld zu machen wäre, wirklich sinnstiftende Dienstleistungen darin zu verbauen. Eine Wunschfunktion, wenn ich mir was wünschen dürfte, zum Beispiel bei sowas wie Google Assured, eine Dienstleistung obendrauf, dass es mir zweimal im Monat gestattet wird, gegen Entgelt von mir aus auch, über Google My Enterprise eine Push-Meldung an meine Follower zu schicken. Sowas wäre complete sinnstiftend, richtig geiles Advertising, direkt auf das Smartphone der Leute, die regelmäßig in meinem Café, in meinem Restaurant, in meinem Friseursalon hocken. Es gäbe eine ganze Menge Sachen, die man damit anstellen könnte. Und ich glaube, die hirnen da grad ganz ordentlich, weil sie wissen, dass es da eine ganz große Palette an Unternehmen gibt, die bisher eigentlich alles Google-Zeugs nur für umme genutzt haben und die dann, wenn man das auch leicht zugänglich macht, plötzlich Geld in das System schütten würden, was bisher einfach nicht da warfare. Und wenn du jedes Jahr ein Double Digit Development organisieren sollst, weil du an der Börse bist, aber dein Marktanteil in Deutschland schon 92 % ist, dann kriegst du halt durch Marktanteilsgewinnung das Double Digit Development einfach nicht mehr hin. Da musst du die, die du hast, halt ein bisschen mehr ausquetschen.

Markus Hövener: Klar. Quick ein gutes Schlusswort, aber möchtest du insgesamt noch ein Schlusswort sprechen, additionally irgendwie so noch mal zusammenfassend, was deiner Meinung nach wirklich wichtig ist, wo ist ein starker Hebel?

Sven Deutschländer: Aus meiner Sicht, additionally in der Funktionalität besteht der starke Hebel einfach darin, dieses Device zu nutzen. Additionally diese App sich runterzuladen, wenn ich so ein Kleiner bin und eigentlich alles selber machen muss und einfach den Push-Meldungen dieser App zu folgen, und die auch regelmäßig daran erinnert, dass darin etwas zu tun ist. Ist einfach so wie viele auch schon ihre Fb Fanpage, das machen viele kleine Unternehmen schon. Fb ist es viel besser gelungen, die Kleinen zu animieren, auf der Fanpage was zu machen, als dass es Google im Second gelingt diesen My Enterprise Eintrag zu benutzen. Additionally da wirklich das aktiv zu nutzen und genauso im Prinzip damit zu arbeiten, wie sie es eben schon mit ihrer Fanpage tun, das würde schon mal wahnsinnig viel helfen, meiner Meinung nach. Additionally wenn sie sich so an die ganz Kleinen mal richten und wenn wir uns an die Größeren richten, nicht verzweifeln, dass man da so viel manuell machen muss. Ich glaube, das ist auch ein Ding, wo die kurz oder lang dran arbeiten werden, dass man einfach viel mehr automatisiert in diesem System machen kann, weil die genau wissen, dass es eine Seuche ist, wenn du mit 123 oder 586 Filialen Google My Enterprise Postings immer noch von Hand eintragen sollst. Und dir dann von jemandem, der eben in so einem Filialgeschäft unterwegs ist und den fragst, wie automatisiert du eigentlich die Google My Enterprise Postings, du kannst doch das unmöglich von Hand machen, die Antwort ist: Die Automatisierung ist das Einstellen von Horden von Studenten.

Markus Hövener: Ja klar.

Sven Deutschländer: Additionally in die Richtung wird sicherlich auch das ein oder andere noch passieren. Und für Google ganz generell und wir als Nutzer von Google ist der Hebel der, dass je intensiver es Google gelingt, diese App zu einer vollwertigen Anlaufstelle für den Alltag von Menschen zu machen, ich glaube, darauf läuft es auf lange Sicht hinaus, egal wo mein Alltag gerade ist, daheim und um mein Daheim drumherum oder meinen Arbeitsplatz, additionally meinen Alltag zu regeln oder im Urlaub alles zu organisieren und zu regeln, was Museum und Unterkunft und Essen und so angeht, je mehr ihnen das gelingt, desto wichtiger wird für uns alle dieses Ding, egal ob wir ein großer Laden sind, der halt eben Filialen vor Ort hat, oder ob wir ein kleiner sind und einfach nur unseren Kiez erreichen wollen.

Markus Hövener: Vielen Dank! Lass uns das Buch für heute schließen.

Sven Deutschländer: So machen wir das.

Markus Hövener: Vielen Dank, dass du so viel Insiderwissen auch geteilt hast.

Sven Deutschländer: Sehr gerne.

Markus Hövener: Offensichtlich bleibt das Thema noch spannend. Additionally gerade so dieses ganze Geldthema wird mit Sicherheit noch in den nächsten Jahren, oder ich hoffe es quick, weil das ist einfach für Google natürlich ein ungenutztes Potenzial, aber für die Unternehmen da draußen gibt’s natürlich auch noch viele Möglichkeiten sich mit ihren lokalen Kunden zu verbinden. Es ist eigentlich schade, dass es noch da viele Wege gibt, die den Unternehmen auch noch nicht angeboten werden.

Sven Deutschländer: Genau.

Markus Hövener: Additionally vielen Dank für deine Zeit.

Sven Deutschländer: Hat mich sehr gefreut.

Markus Hövener: Vielen Dank euch da draußen fürs Zuhören und schaltet nächstes Mal wieder ein. Wisst ihr ja, bleibt gesund, macht keinen Scheiß und bis bald. Ciao!

bookmark_borderGoogle: web page velocity index may get extra gradations sooner or later

Speed ​​Score

Google might make additional distinctions sooner or later when evaluating web site load instances.

Thus far, Google is evaluating the loading time of internet sites solely within the "regular" and "very sluggish" classes. Which means that significantly sluggish pages might be deprived in comparison with different sooner loading pages, so long as the pages are in any other case largely equal.

This might change sooner or later. Within the webmaster’s hangout on March 17. Johannes Müller stated that it’s potential that the analysis of web page velocity might be carried out at finer levels sooner or later. Nevertheless, it’s presently not price spending a whole lot of effort to hurry up a web page by just a few milliseconds.

As well as, it’s troublesome to measure small as a result of Google makes use of a combination of laboratory and discipline information. Müller had lately defined, it’s hardly potential to find out the precise web page velocity of an internet site primarily based on various factors.

When requested if Google would give additional rating bonuses to significantly quick websites, Müller replied that one factor required the opposite. If the sluggish pages had drawbacks within the search, there could be benefits for the sooner. Müller left it open if significantly quick pages profit greater than pages with regular load instances.

So it ought to all the time apply: you shouldn't make an excessive amount of effort to optimize load instances if an internet site is throughout the regular vary. Minimal enhancements ought to proceed to have little or no affect on rating.
