Google Answer Boxes and Comments on Posts
Knowledge Graph 2.0: Now Featuring Your Knowledge – by MOZ
An interesting article on MOZ by Peter Meyers into the workings of Google and how they return search results. This article isn’t aimed at SEO specifically, but instead it looks deeper into how Google returns ‘Answers Boxes’ at the top of search results so that the person searching can get a quick answer before scanning the list of websites and descriptions in the rest of the search results.
This is a very interesting article and points towards how Google is extracting data from its indexed websites, and you should definitely read if this is something you are interested in.

Why We’re Removing Comments on Copyblogger – by Copyblogger
You can probably guess from the title that this is a post on Copyblogger, and more specifically Sonia Simone, who is a co-founder and Chief Content Officer of Copyblogger Media. While this article is about an experiment they are carrying out, there is some interesting and useful snippets for all websites. Whether or not to have comments turned on is not a straight forward question, and some websites have them on and others don’t. Have a read and see what you think.
