Google launches App Maker service
Google has introduced App Maker, which is a new service for creating applications that mostly focuses on corporate clients. The company is now accepting applications for early access to the tool from different enterprises that are using paid version of the G Suite.
App Maker is aimed at the professionals who are not application developers.
"We are mostly targeted at corporate developers who create a variety of solutions within their own company, but do not possess enough knowledge, that the mobile applications developers have," - says Google Product manager, Agee Surya.
Applications created with the help of App Maker, operate on the basis of the same infrastructure as Gmail, Google Calendar and Drive.
The data that is generated within the application can be stored in the new Google Drive Tables service, which is managed by a structured Google Drive database.
App Maker users will be able to integrate their applications with Google with a number of services, including Calendar, Contacts, Docs, Drive, Forms, Gmail, Groups, Translator, Maps, Google Sites, Tables and Google BigQuery.
Google changes its approach to the tab content processing
Google representatives have repeatedly said that the content hidden from users under the tabs and links gets less important and can be ignored by the ranking algorithms. According to Gary Illyes, after the mobile-first index is launched, the current situation should change.
During the discussion regarding the upcoming launch into the Twitter Illyes was asked the following question:
"The "bellows" on the desktop content and similar elements on the page are ignored or are not indexed. Is it processed the same way on mobile devices? ". Ilyes replied:
"No, the mobile-first world content is hidden from users and must have the full weight."
It is still a secret whether it will influence the desktop content or not.

Google launched a new feature "Resource Kits" in the Search Console in May this year. It allows you to connect up to 200 resources of any type (either the web pages or applications) into a sole group and receive all the data on clicks and impressions in a single report.
From now on the resource kits are also available through the Search Analytics API.
