Google to penalize sites that prompt you to download their app


When we visit different sites, we often find there are pop-ups, showing to download application. So Google takes into account such sites and helps us by penalizing such sites. As we know that Google is one of the largest search engines in a worldwide basis, so it has announced that those sites which will prompt the user to download any kind of mobile app will be penalized from the day one of November.

“After November 1, mobile web pages that show an app install interstitial that hides a significant amount of content on the transition from the search result page will no longer be considered mobile-friendly.”

After not being considered as mobile friendly, such sites won’t be taken into account by Google and will not be shown in the search engines. As, Google takes into consideration only mobile friendly sites. The testing tool for mobile friendly is being updated by Google. Along with that the usability report is also being updated, and it warns you if it finds a huge number of app download.

Also, Google helps you in the other way by letting the browser promote app, which are useful or user-friendly. So without using App download interstitials, people can download from the browser itself.

In July last year, Google made an announcement with a blog, by asking to reconsider App download interstitials. So it is trying to give penalty to app interstitials.

If any issue is being recommended by Google, it is wise to follow it, because there is a possibility that some change might take place. So it is better to take the advice of the Google.

Google maps introducing new features


To bring new features in Google map, Google is working on it. It is trying to add things like more personalization, filters and content for the Android. This is being done in places like UK and US. Also, if you want to dine out to the nearest location, Google map will help you to get some new-curated recommendations.

After you select the place where you want to dine out, you can go into the depth of it and find out the details of the place. All the photos are available and you can just look into it. Also, for the benefit of the user it gives the review and ratings of the place. This helps you to decide whether you want to visit it or not. It also saves your time by giving the best-rated place at once, so you do not have to search for it.

Also, it helped in exploring the process of translation and made it very much user-friendly with the mobile phones. Thus, helping the user to understand it at ease. The key word used are ‘near me’ and ‘nearby’ and has been used hugely by people since 2011.

Google maps introducing new features

The recommendations, which have already been given by exploring, changes with the change in location. So here you can adjust it by yourself with the help of the filter option and easily generate some different result. This proved to be very much useful with incremental.

Such new features and capabilities have projected out the visibility and utility of exploring. This explores feature is being used a little less now in Google maps. This makes it bring out something more in it. Also, it would have been very much useful if Google brings in the explore feature inside Google now. This would help the user to use and access it with ease.
