Google News Title Tags & H1 Tags Should Be Consistent For Ranking

Hemant Verma - 6:15 PM
Yesterday Google News Stacie Chan and Google Webmaster Trends Analyst John Mueller hosted a Google News Publisher hangout on Google+, which was filled with great information.



One question that many Google News publishers do not know, which I've heard before but personally do not practice myself, is that the title tag and your headline (H1) should be consistent and the same. If you do not have the same title and H1 tag, it can confuse Google News and give it a hard time understanding what your article/story is about.

With web search SEO, it is often good to slightly change up the title tag and H1 so you can rank for slight variations but maybe not for Google News SEO.

The question was asked by Jane Sanderson:
Is it better to have the Title and H1 content different? Google News rules indicate no, but some SEO's say yes. Is this just a matter that the algorithm is different for Google Search and Google News?

Stacie Chan from Google responded:

Consistency is key. One thing we always try to get right is extracting your headline. And if there are different places on the page that point to different headlines, that’s very confusing for the bot.
And that is why we get publishers sometimes writing in - "oh, you guys got my headline wrong!" And we say, "well, there are different parts of your page that say different things."
So really try to be consistent, it is the best way for us to correctly index your headline, index that snippet below.
 Here is the video where she answered this about 46 minutes into the hangout:

Google Shortcuts: Street Maps

Hemant Verma - 8:35 PM
Want to find where something is or how to get there? Just enter an address into Google. You can also copy and paste addresses, even ones with embedded carriage returns, into Google’s search box. When Google recognizes your query as a location, the results page includes a map for that location.
Google Maps’ coverage of the world is expanding, but not all countries are available. If you enter a query and get a map result (as shown below), you’re set. Otherwise, try a different query format, giving more or less information, or check Where does Google Maps work?.
The information you should enter depends on the country you’re searching for. In general, start your query with a business name or street address. Next give either the postal code, or the city and state/province. Often, the street address and city name will be enough.

Click on either the map or the Buckingham Palace Rd… link to view a detailed, scrollable map showing [ 76 Buckingham Palace Road London SW1 ].
Detailed map Google returns after you click on small map on the results page.
To get a map with travel directions from another location, enter a starting address in the box to the right of the small map and click the Get directionsbutton — or use one of the other Directions links on the detailed map.
Detailed driving directions from Google.
As the previous example showed, Google can often find where something is located without your providing an address. (We gave the starting address “Waterloo Station London”.) This works for many businesses, too — especially if the business has registered with the Google Local Business Center.
If Google finds more than one business name or location matching your query, it will show a map and several links as (currently) the fourth result on the Results Page.
Google search box with [ Eegees Tucson AZ ].

In many areas, Google can show not only a street map. At the top right corner of the detailed map, look for buttons that let you choose the type of view. The Satellite view shows the area as it looks (with high magnification!) from outer space. Not all areas are available at all maginfications, and the photos may not be completely up to date. This is a view of the “airplane graveyard” in Tucson, Arizona.

To open that map in your browser, click on the screen shot or the “airplane graveyard” link above. Try the zoom and pan controls at the top left. You can probably also pan the map by dragging the hand cursor (hold down your mouse button, then drag the mouse to move the map in that direction).

Google Shortcuts: Phone Numbers and Address

Hemant Verma - 8:30 PM
Google no longer supports personal telephone and address searches because of numerous user complaints.
Finding the phone number of a person who lives in the United States used to mean searching the white pages of the telephone directory. Printed residential phone books are getting scarce, but Google has an alternative: the Residential PhoneBook service. Just enter a person’s name and a city, state, or zip code in the standard web search box. You can also enter a phone number to find the person’s name and address. Then hit the ENTER key or click the Search button.
Google search box with [ John Doe New York NY ].  
On the results page, phonebook listings are next to a telephone icon:

Clicking on the “Phonebook results” link just above the telephone icon takes you to the Residential PhoneBook page, where you may find more results:
Screen shot of a Google PhoneBook listing.
The end of the PhoneBook listing has a link to the Google Phonebook Name Removal form. Be aware that, once you’ve removed your number from the listings, you can’t add it back.
Google’s residential phonebook feature recognizes inputs in several formats.
To find a US residence, enter …Examples
First name, last name, city, stateJohn Doe New York NY ]
First name, last name, stateJohn Doe NY ]
First name, last name, area codeJohn Doe 212 ]
First name, last name, zip codeJohn Doe 10128 ]
Google adjusts their search algorithms from time to time, so you may find other search methods that work. (For example, using someone’s first initial used to give listings for everyone whose name started with that letter. As of this writing, using a first initial brings up listings with just that initial but no first name.)
Google supports reverse look up. You can enter a phone number with area code and learn to whom that number belongs.
Be aware that some listings are out of date.
If Google doesn’t return a phonebook link, try using the phonebook: search operator.
Google search box with [ phonebook:Dorothy Kansas ].  
Need an email address? Though it would be a nice feature for you and me, Google doesn’t offer an email-lookup service, since spammers could use it to get your address and send you unsolicited spam email.
When you search for a US business phonebook listing, business name and location or phone number, Google will return a map — and a website, if Google has found it. You can read more in the next section, Street Maps.

Google Shortcuts: Google Calculator

Hemant Verma - 8:21 PM
Want to add up a list of numbers, convert from miles to kilometers, or evaluate some other mathematical expression? Instead of using a piece of paper, your calculator, or a computer math software program, you can now solve mathematical problems with Google’s built-in calculator function.
Simply enter the expression you’d like evaluated in Google’s web search box and click the ENTER key or click the Google Searchbutton.

When Google recognizes your query as a calculation of a mathematical expression, it computes the result.
The Google Guide Calculator Reference provides a nice summary of some of Google’s calculator features.
Once you have a result, you can use your browser’s Copy feature (usually on its Edit menu) to copy the result. Then you can paste it into another program, a box in a form on another web page, and so on.
The calculator can evaluate mathematical expressions involving Basic Arithmetic, Advanced Math, Units of Measure and Conversions, and Physical Constants. Let’s see details about each of these.

1. Basic Arithmetic

Compute expressions containing standard mathematical symbols. The following table lists operators that come between the two numbers on which they operate, e.g., to multiply 2 times 3, use 2 * 3.
OperatorFunctionExample
+Addition15.99 + 32.50 + 13.25 ]
Subtraction79 – 18 – 19 ]
*Multiplication2 * 3 * 7 ]
/Division378 / 9 ]
^ or **Exponentiation (raise to a power of)4^10 ] or [ 4**10 ]
% ofPercent15% of 93.45 ]
mod or %modulo (the remainder after division)15 mod 9 ] or [ 15 % 9 ]
the nth root ofcalculates the nth root4th root of 16 ]; [ cube root of 109 ]; [ square root of 42 ] or [ sqrt(42) ]
Note: To do multiplication, you must include the * symbol; [ 3 * 4 ] will be calculated, 3 4 won’t.

2. Advanced Math

Compute results involving mathematical constants, such as epii (the square root of –1), and mathematical functions. The following table lists just some of the functions built into Google’s calculator.
OperatorFunctionExample
sin, cos, tan, sec, csc, cot, etc.Trigonometric functions (arguments are assumed to be in radians)cos(pi/6) ]; [ cosine(pi/6) ]
arcsin, arccos, arctan, arccsc, etc.Inverse trigonometric functionsarccos(.5) ]
sinh, cosh, tanh, csch, arsinh, arccsch, etc.Hyperbolic functionscosh(6) ]
lnLogarithm base eln(16) ]
logLogarithm base 10log(16) ]
lgLogarithm base 2lg(16) ]
expExponential functionexp(16) ]
!Factorial5! ]
choosex choose y calculates the number of ways of choosing a set of y elements from a set of x distinct elements5 choose 3 ]
The following table lists just a few of the commonly used mathematical constants known to the calculator function.
Name and descriptionExample
base of the natural system of logarithmse ]
pi, the ratio of the circumference to the diameter of a circlepi/6 ]
imaginary number, i, which represents one of the two square roots of -1i^2 ]
Euler’s constant, gammae^gamma ]

3. Units of Measure and Conversions

Compute expressions involving different units. By default, units are converted to and results expressed in meter-kilogram-second (mks) units. Many units have both long and short names. Use whichever name you prefer.
Type of UnitsExamples
CurrencyAustralian Dollars (AUD), British pounds (GBP), Euros, US Dollars (USD)
Masskilogram or kg, grams or g, grains, pounds or lbs, carats, stones, tons, tonnes
Lengthmeters or m, miles, feet, Angstroms, cubits, furlongs
Volumegallons, liters or l, bushels, teaspoons, pints
Areasquare kilometers, acres, hectares
Timedays, seconds or s, centuries, sidereal years, fortnights
Electricityvolts, amps, ohms, henrys
EnergyCalories, British thermal units (BTU), joules, ergs, foot-pounds
Powerwatt, kilowatts, horsepower or hp
Informationbits, bytes, kbytes, etc.
Quantitydozen, baker’s dozen, percent, gross, great gross, score, googol
Numbering systemsdecimal, hexadecimal or hex, octal, binary, roman numerals, etc. Prefix hexadecimal numbers with 0x, octal numbers with 0o and binary numbers with 0b. For example: 0×7f + 0b10010101.
Here are calculations that involve units.
Convert from one set of units to another by using the notation, x units in y units.
Warning: When your query includes “Calories” with a capital “C,” Google returns kilocalories called “calories” by nutritionists.
Convert from one numbering system to another.
In many cases, you can also get the conversion factor between units:
That last conversion is a common joke among engineers — though, as Jim Jardine points out, “There is no reason to denigrate neither furlongs nor fortnights as they are both very easily defined measurements.” (See his page Furlongs Today.)

4. Physical Constants

The following table lists just a few of the many commonly used physical constants known to the calculator function. Parts of this table were adapted from the table at the end of David W. Ward’s article Physics the Google Way.
Note: Sometimes Google’s calculator interprets lower case letters different from upper case letters.
Long NameShorthand NotationClick the Link for the Approximate Value
atomic mass unitsamuamu ] or [ atomic mass unit ]
Astronomical Unitauau ] or [ astronomical unit ]
Avogadro’s numberN_A ] or [ Avogadro’s number ]
Boltzmann constantkk ] or [ Boltzmann constant ]
electric constant, permittivity of free spaceepsilon_0 ]
electron massm_e ] or [ electron mass ]
electron volteVeV ] or [ electron volt ]
elementary chargeelementary charge ]
Euler’s constantEuler’s constant ]

proton massm_p ] or [ proton mass ]
radius of each planet and of the sunr_earth ], [ r_pluto ], …, [ r_sun ]
Rydberg constantRydberg constant ]
speed of light in a vacuumcc ] or [ speed of light ]
speed of sound in air at sea levelspeed of sound ]
Stefan-Boltzmann constantStefan-Boltzmann constant ]
Here are some calculations using built-in constants.

5. Using Parentheses

Parentheses (( )) can be used whenever they’ll serve to make complicated expressions unambiguous, and also sets of parentheses can be used within parentheses. Don’t use brackets ([ ]) for grouping.
The following are tips from Google’s online help for the calculator, which can be found on the web at www.google.com/help/calculator.html.
  • You can force the calculator to try to evaluate an expression by putting an equals sign (=) after it. This works only if the expression is arithmetically computable. For example, 1-800-555-1234= (a US phone number followed by an equals sign) will return a result, but 1/0= will not.
  • Parentheses can be used to enclose the parts of your expression that you want evaluated first. For example, (1+2)*3 causes the addition to happen before the multiplication.
Feel free to experiment with the calculator as not all of its capabilities are listed here.
