Google Adds If-Modified-Since Section To Crawl Budget Help Document

Published

on

Google has added a new section to the crawl budget management help document. The new section is for the If-Modified-Since request header. The section is titled “Specify content changes with HTTP status codes.”

Google wrote, “Google generally supports the If-Modified-Since and If-None-Match HTTP request headers for crawling. Google’s crawlers don’t send the headers with all crawl attempts; it depends on the use case of the request (for example, AdsBot is more likely to set the If-Modified-Since and If-None-Match HTTP request headers).”

“If our crawlers send the If-Modified-Since header, the header’s value is the date and time the content was last crawled. Based on that value, the server may choose to return a 304 (Not Modified) HTTP status code with no response body, in which case Google will reuse the content version it crawled the last time. If the content is newer than the date specified by the crawler in the If-Modified-Since header, the server can return a 200 (OK) HTTP status code with the response body.”

“Independently of the request headers, you can send a 304 (Not Modified) HTTP status code and no response body for any Googlebot request if the content hasn’t changed since Googlebot last visited the URL. This will save your server processing time and resources, which may indirectly improve crawl efficiency.”

I am not sure if I have any commentary on this, outside of the fact that this new section was added to this page.

Now the internet’s fighting over old scrollbar designs

Scrollbar design; three computer scrollbars are pulled and pushed with a mouse

Have you ever considered what your favourite scrollbar design is? It’s the kind of UI and UX design that often gets overlooked, because we use it so casually.  Web curator and coder Sébastien Matos has created an interactive journey into scrollbar design, meaning you can visit his page and fiddle with over 30 years of UI design.

There’s a lot that can be learned from experimenting with great UI design like the scrollbars of the old MacOS, and a site like Matos’, while novel, is actually a reminder we need to curate old design concepts in practical ways. There’s nothing like actually being able to interact with UI design. Check out our guide to the best UI prototyping tools for a hands-on approach to creating your own.

NORAD to track Santa’s annual voyage

NORAD to track Santa's annual voyage

A holiday tradition born 66 years ago — by accident — will continue in 2021.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command, the Colorado-based United States and Canadian bi-national military organization charged with the missions of aerospace warning, aerospace control and maritime warning in defense of North America, will track Santa and his team of reindeer as they traverse the world delivering toys to good boys and girls.

Starting at 3 a.m. on Dec. 24, visitors to the NORAD Tracks Santa website at www.noradsanta.org can see updates as the jolly elf prepares for his flight.

Then, at 5 a.m., trackers worldwide can call to inquire about Santa’s whereabouts by dialing the toll-free number 1-877-Hi-NORAD (1-877-446-6723), where they will either speak with a live phone operator or hear a recorded update.

Due to COVID concerns, the NORAD Tracks Santa Operations Center will have fewer phone operators, so callers who do not reach a volunteer will hear a regularly updated recording as to Santa’s current location.

On Christmas Eve, Amazon Alexa users can ask for Santa’s location through the NORAD Tracks Santa skill for Amazon Alexa, and OnStar subscribers can press the OnStar button in their vehicles to locate Santa. Santa Trackers can also use the Bing search engine to learn of Santa’s location.

The website, which was launched earlier this month, also features Santa’s North Pole Village, which includes a holiday countdown, games, movie theater, holiday music and webstore. The website is available in eight languages: English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese and Chinese.

Tracking Santa has been a tradition since 1955 when a local newspaper advertisement informed children they could call Santa directly, but the contact number was misprinted. Instead of reaching Santa, the phone rang through to the crew commander on duty, U.S. Air Force Col. Harry Shoup, at the Continental Air Defense Command Operations Center, the predecessor to NORAD.

Shoup was quick to realize a mistake had been made and assured the child he was Santa. Shoup then assigned a duty officer to continue answering calls.

NORAD has carried on the duties of tracking Santa since it was created in 1958 and reported Santa’s location on Dec. 24 each year to millions of children and families worldwide.

The official NORAD Tracks Santa app is available in the Apple App and Google Play stores, so parents and children can count the days until Santa’s launch on their smartphones and tablets.

Tracking opportunities are also offered through social media on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram.
