    Google Looks at Desktop For Many Ranking Signals

    There is a lot of good stuff coming out of SMX Advanced.

    Technically, You Can Have Completely Different Content On Mobile Says Google

    In SEO there is this concept of cloaking, cloaking is basically when you show the search engine a piece of content that is not what the user sees. Back in the old days, it was done in extreme ways, like showing users adult content but showing the search engines G rated content.
    And....I'm surprised not many people are taking advantage of this, But hey, at least they have a team to watch.

    ...So technically, if you serve up a URL and on the desktop version you have content on that URL about Alice in Wonderland but you decide to serve up content on the mobile version of that URL about Payday Loans, you can and Google will rank the mobile version as if the page was about Alice in Wonderland.

    Thanks Justin.

    I've missed all of SMX. Even missed covering and catching up on the nuggets from Joy, Darren and Greg's Local session yesterday morning.

    Was recovering from and catching up from the forum crashing.
    Then I crashed and landed in ER.
    Then last night the forum crashed again, so was not my most productive day.

    So trying to catch up today. Thanks for sharing!

    You want to set up an SMX update Thread? or I can do it. Also, I think I mentioned Mercury In Retrograde? Are you a believer yet?
