Numerous SEO studies have claimed that "longer content ranks better".But NONE of those studies went deeper than observing a very weak correlation.Does longer content really rank better, or is this yet another example of "correlation does not equal causation"?This second post in CanIRank's data-driven SEO series digs deeper into the data to identify whether or not Google's algorithm actually rewards longer content.Other issues addressed include: Does longer content just earn more links?Are big brands more likely to publish longer content?

Words like organic and even free-range are more marketing language than anything else, but now the Department of Agriculture has changed that a bit.A new rule establishes stricter USDA criteria for foods labeled organic.The new rule won t be completely implemented until March 2018, which gives farming operations time to adjust to the new standards if they want to keep their organic label.Under current standards, the label organic doesn t have much to do with animal welfare.It basically just refers to restrictions on what the animals are fed and when they re given antibiotics.Some consumers know this; others assume organic means animals are treated humanely.

The hacker and activist collective Anonymous, which wasn t a heavy-hitter during the presidential campaign, has now warned Donald Trump that he is going to regret the next four years.The group made the threat in response to Trump s tweet earlier this week suggesting that outgoing CIA Director John Brennan may have been the leaker of what Trump called fake news — the revelation of an unsubstantiated report by a former British spy that claims Russia has compromising information on the president-elect that could be used to blackmail him.Anonymous vowed that it will seek out and release damaging information on Trump s activities and finances linked to Russia.Information doesn t vanish, it is all out there, the group said, promising to reveal details on financial and personal ties with Russian mobsters, child traffickers, and money launderers.This isn t the 80 s any longer, information doesn t vanish, it is all out there.You are going to regret the next 4 years.

sometimes It is said to integrate memory closer with the processors in computers, to get better performance.But now, the singaporean and German scientists in cooperation instead designed a memory chip that can function as a processor.It can also lead to smaller, slimmer and lighter devices, like phones, because a component of the processor can be deleted.In the extension, perhaps this opens the way for completely new types of units.We can now increase the capacity for översättningsmaskinen, " says Anupam Chattopadhyay, assistant professor at Nanyangs technological university in Singapore, IDG News.It is about a memory chip of the type Reram, see box.

The revamped Apple TV hasn t had the strongest start of any streaming video box.When it came out, many critics myself included panned it for delivering too little, too late – especially in the gaming department.But a recent change to Apple TV s app size limitation could change that.Today Apple announced that it would up the maximum allotted size for apps on the Apple TV from 200MB to 4GB.What this means is that developers now 20 times the space they had before to include more graphical elements, which will be especially useful for game designers.The reason Apple launched with such a low data ceiling in the beginning was to prevent people from filling up their on-board storage too quickly.

Wearable technology can tell when you are ill before you even realise it, a study has found.One participant, and author of the study, was alerted to changes in heart rate and blood oxygen levels by sensors he was wearing, which correctly predicted the onset of Lyme disease.Carried out at the Stanford University School of Medicine, the test saw a team of scientists collect nearly two billion measurements from 60 people wearing a range of sensors to record their vital statistics.In all, over 250,000 data entries were logged each day.As well as data recorded from wearable sensors, laboratory tests of their blood chemistry and gene expression were also logged.Data collected included heart rate, blood oxygen level, skin temperature, activity including sleep, steps, walking, biking and running , calories burnt, acceleration, and exposure to gamma rays and X-rays.

PC gamers who are already growing tired of the awesome power of Nvidia s GTX 1080 graphics card and if that s you, just know that we re all jealous have been hotly anticipating the reveal of the 1080 Ti, which promises to up the ante considerably.A new report alleges that Nvidia was actually ready to formally announce the new card and even show it off, but decided against it once they watched AMD s press conference, feeling that the announcement of a new high watermark simply wasn t needed just yet.Citing a purported interview with an Nvidia manufacturing partner, WCCFTech reports that the 1080 Ti was on the slate for CES but was pushed back at the last second once it appeared that AMD s Vega graphics technology wasn t going to headline its own CES presser.Nvidia took that as an opportunity to further refine its 1080 Ti messaging and marketing ahead of an eventual reveal at PAX East, which takes place in March.AMD is said be planning the release of its first Vega-based GPU in late Q2 2017, so it would makes sense for Nvidia — who is already leading in GPU market share by a mile — to hold its next big thing until it can take the most wind out of its competitor s sails.The GTX 1080, which is generally considered the go-to for enthusiasts and gamers with healthy budgets who don t want to jump all the way to the high-priced GTX Titan cards, debuted in late May of last year with a price of $599.

When it comes to live entertainment, there may be no substitute for being there - but Snapchat's director of partnerships Ben Schwerin wants to make sure his company can provide the next best thing before its rumoured high-profile IPO in 2017.That means abandoning the choreographed, performance-focused filmography of a professional camera crew in favour of the chaotic, collaborative stream of snaps and snippets from the crowd.Live Stories allows a Snapchat partner to create a geofenced content hub, granting posting access only to those present at an event.A three-day Live Story around the 2015 Coachella music festival, for example, generated 40 million viewers, and Schwerin has claimed the average audience for a Live Story runs to around 20 million people in 24 hours.For events where more professional production is required, Schwerin has arranged partnerships with broadcasters.Most notable was one with NBC and BuzzFeed to create highlights coverage of the 2016 Olympics.

HPE's new chip marks a milestone in optical computing We may use photons to carry our data, but we rely on the electron to put it to use.One day that division of labor might not be so stark.A team at Hewlett Packard Labs, in Palo Alto, Calif., has built a demonstration chip that could help push some particularly thorny computations into the realm of light, potentially boosting speed and saving energy in the process.EFF's 2017 wishlist For the last five years, EFF has greeted the holiday season by publishing a list of things we'd like to see happen in the coming year.Sometimes these are actions we'd like to see taken by companies, and sometimes our wishes are aimed at governments, but we also include actions everyday people can take to advance our digital civil liberties.Last month it became apparent that these concerns are not just one-sided complaints, when the U.S. Government launched a criminal case against two of Prenda Law's principals.
