Google shows the wrong date in the search results
A few days ago a lot of webmasters have noticed that Google shows the wrong date of the publication of content in the search results. This is clearly seen from the messages posted on Google Webmaster Help, Webmaster World, BlackHat World, and Moz forums.
The screenshot (see the link below) displays Google indicates that the message was published on the 30th of December, 2014. In fact, it was uploaded on the 11th of January, 2016.
The specialists are already aware of the bug and are currently working on fixing this error as soon as possible for all users affected.
Google: Noindex directive is of more importance than Index
Google rep, Gary Illyes, reminded that if the code page indicates both directives Noindex and Index only Noindex will be taken into account.
It’s not an undiscovered land for many webmasters, but a truism. However, judging by the fact that Ilsh decided to remind about this on his webpage on Twitter, such situations are not uncommon.
Number of pages in Google index is now over 130 trillion
Google has updated the «How Search Works» page, adding the actual data on the number of indexed pages. At the moment this number exceeds 130 trillion and is still growing.
In March 2013, the number was equal to 30 trillion. In less than 4 years Google has added more than 100 trillion pages into the index.
It should be reminded that now the company is testing a new mobile-first index. This means that in the near future the search algorithms will primarily assess the relevance of a mobile version of the page, and if not, it will use a desktop.
