Google Testing Search Bar Filters/Options On Top Right Side

We recently spotted Google testing the search bar navigation on the left hand side and now Google is testing different search filters on the left side bar. These are for product related queries that let you filter by feature, brand, department, size, etc.

Ryan Mews posted a screenshot and a video of this on Twitter saying “I was just thrown into the facet style filter test in the SERP,” indeed he was. Here is his screenshot (click to enlarge):

He even posted a video of it in action:

I am not sure I like this look but Google always be testing…

Google Says 60% Of The Internet Is Duplicate

Google Says 60% Of The Internet Is Duplicate

And you think you have a duplicate content problem on your site? Google said, “60% of the internet is duplicate.” Gary Illyes from Google posted this slide at the Google Search Central Live in Singapore the other day.

The slide was taken from a tweet from Kenichi Suzuki who was at the event, here it is:

I do wonder how Google defines “duplicate”? I mean is that 100% exact matches of the content, HTML, near matches, similar topics, etc?

Google has a lot of choices of what it can rank these days for almost any query (minus the 15%) – and this 60% figure really shows how much choice Google has. So that means you need to produce something way more unique and useful than most of what is out on the internet.
