Google Drive will become a backup tool
Google plans to make a backup tool out of Google's cloud service. Soon it will be available to track and archive files inside any folder the user specifies. This can also be the contents of the entire hard disk or the Documents folder.
The backup function will be available from June 28 after the release of the new Backup and Sync application, which is the latest version of Google Drive for Mac / PC.
It is assumed that users will have the opportunity to open and edit files located in the cloud. It is still not clear whether they will be able to synchronize information between multiple PCs using Disk as an intermediary.
Since the auto update to Backup and Sync is not planned, the company recommends installing a new application immediately after being released.
The new feature is primarily targeted at corporate Google Drive users.
Google is speeding up the mobile pages in the ranking
Google is changing its approach to assessing the speed of page loading. In the near future, the ranking will take into account the speed of mobile pages and not desktop. This was reported by the Goole search representative Gary Illyes at the SMX Advanced 2017 conference.
As you know, at the moment Google measures only the loading speed of the desktop pages. These data are used both in desktop ranking and mobile.
However, mobile speed is more important for Google. Therefore, it was decided to make changes to the search algorithm. This approach is already under consideration.
Illyes also stressed upon the fact that Google will actively inform webmasters about any changes before launching the mobile-first index. So not to make a surprise for specialists.
Earlier it was reported that Google has not been planning to take into account the downloading speed for mobile pages in the ranking.
Google My Business has added a tool for website creation
Google My Business has launched a new tool using which users will be able to create a free business card website for their company.
You need to verify ownership of the company page in My Business to access the tool. The data and photos placed on it will be used to create the website. The website appearance can be configured, and its contents supplemented.
If you change the company’ data, the website will be automatically updated. In addition, it will be optimized for cross-platform devices.
Having created a website you can publish it immediately or do that later.
A window that offers you to create a website appears after the confirmation of the company page. This function is also available in the "Website" menu.
For more information about this feature see the Help Center.
According to Google, 60% of small businesses do not have their own website. With the help of a new tool they will be able to create them.
Instagram launches tags for sponsored posts
Instagram added a new feature to mark the paid posts with the "Sponsor of publication" label with the indication of the partner company. This information was reported by the service press.
In the coming weeks, the new label will begin to appear in advertisements and bloggers’ “stories” all around the world. When you click on it, users will be able to go to their business partner account.
The content creator and its partner will have access to statistics for each publication when the label is used. This will help them understand how subscribers interact with similar materials.
Content creators will see this information in the Statistics section in Instagram, as well as their partners on their Facebook page.
Instagram authorities believe that the innovation will strengthen the atmosphere of trust inside the service.
To date, a new feature is only available for a small number of companies and content authors. In the coming months, developers are planning to launch it for a wide audience along with official rules and guidelines.
Google: 503 status code should not be applied for weeks
Google’s spokesman John Mueller said that the server's 503 response code should be used within a few hours, but not weeks.
503 error means that the server is temporarily unable to process requests for technical reasons (this may be a maintenance, overload, etc.). This is a good method to help Google understand that the website will be unavailable for a limited period of time.
However, it is not recommended to use it for longer than a few hours. According to Mueller, "weeks" does not mean temporary. He also added that the webmasters are misleading Google in this case.
If it's not accessible for weeks, it would be misleading to include it in search, imo. It's an error page, essentially.

We should remind you that John Mueller previously told how not to lose the position in the search engine, if there is a need to temporarily suspend the website (for a day or more) either due to technical maintenance or for other reasons.
