A Facebook post in Ethiopia lured online users with a bogus free internet data offer allegedly promoted by mobile phone company Ethio Telecom. The claim includes a link allegedly leading to the Ethio Telecom website. But AFP Fact Check found this to be fake: the URL leads to a flawed cryptocurrency site while the screenshot depicting the alleged giveaway is from an impostor account.

The message was posted on Facebook on June 20, 2022, and has since been shared over 100 times.

Written in Afaan Oromoo, the caption translates to: “Congratulations, you can get free Facebook data for 30 days here. Please follow the next steps and access the free data. Please click the link below, log into your Facebook account and use the free service.

The post includes a screenshot purporting to be from Ethio Telecom, asking Facebook users to enter their “correct password and phone number” to log in and get the free data.

John Mueller from Google answered if Google would use links in structured data for crawling. Getting links discovered, crawled, and then indexed is vital for SEO, so any perk available to get more pages crawled would help.

What does Google use links in structured data for?

The questioner wants to know if Google uses links discovered in structured data for crawling.

They also want to know if Google does not use the links to crawl if they are simply stored.

Here is the question:

“Does Google crawl URLs in structured data markup or does Google just store the data?”

Google tries to crawl many types of URLs

Mueller’s answer may seem a bit surprising because, among other things, he mentions that Google might be trying to crawl a link that’s in a text file.

Another point of interest is that he says Google will crawl anything that “looks“as a link, followed by examples of what”looks like a link” means.

Muller’s response:

“So most of the time when we’re looking at HTML pages, if we see something that looks like a link, we might go away and try that URL as well.

It’s something where if we find a URL in JavaScript, we can try to retrieve it and try to use it.

If we find a link in the form of a text file on a site, we can try to crawl and use it. »

Mueller’s answer is a pretty good look at what Google could do with alternate links, links that aren’t traditional HTML hyperlinks with anchor text.

What follows is Mueller’s reminder that all of these alternate forms of links should not be considered substitutes for actual HTML hyperlinks, what Mueller calls a “normal link”.

Mueller strongly recommends using a standard HTML hyperlink if you want something that works like a link.

He continues his response:

“But it’s not really a normal bond.

So that’s something I would recommend if you want Google to crawl that URL, make sure there’s a natural HTML link to that URL, also with clear anchor text, that you’re giving information about the page destination.

If you don’t want Google to crawl that specific URL, maybe block it with robots.txt or use a rel=canonical on that page pointing to your preferred version, something like that.

So those are kind of the directions I would go there.

I wouldn’t blindly assume that just because it’s in structured data doesn’t mean it won’t be found.

I also wouldn’t blindly assume that just because it’s structured data, it will be found.

He could be found.

It may not be found.

I’d rather focus on what you want to happen there.

If you want it to be seen as a link, make it a link.

If you don’t want it crawled or indexed, block crawling or indexing.

It’s all entirely up to you.

Alternative links

SEOs have created many alternative forms of linking, some of which (such as “link mentions”) have no basis in reality and are pure conjecture and opinion.

Many years ago, SEOs started practicing something called Google Stacking, which included adding links to Google Sheets and then pointing links to that Google Sheet in the belief that the practice would help rankings.

The idea was similar to Web 2.0 link building, where some SEOs had the mistaken notion that the so-called “authority” of a Google-affiliated site would carry over to links on Google Sheets and Google Sites.

Adding this to Mueller’s answer on links in structured data, Mueller confirmed that Google could crawl links in structured data, JavaScript, and text files. But he also said that when it comes to structured data, Google might not crawl those links.

Mueller says it’s best to use real links if you want to harness the power of links.

Food safety actions are key to building trust, says Yiannas https://web-link.biz/food-safety-actions-are-key-to-building-trust-says-yiannas/ Thu, 23 Jun 2022 04:28:18 +0000 https://web-link.biz/food-safety-actions-are-key-to-building-trust-says-yiannas/ Food safety actions speak the loudest when it comes to building trust, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Deputy Commissioner for Food Policy and Response. “What we say on food safety issues, what we write on food safety issues, but more important is what we do,” said Frank Yiannas at the ONE – […]]]>

Food safety actions speak the loudest when it comes to building trust, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Deputy Commissioner for Food Policy and Response.

“What we say on food safety issues, what we write on food safety issues, but more important is what we do,” said Frank Yiannas at the ONE – Health, Environment, Society – conference. in Brussels and online.

The event, from June 21 to 24is organized by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), the European Chemicals Agency, the European Environment Agency, the European Agency Medicines and the Joint Research Center (JRC) of the European Commission.

Yiannas gave two examples of what the FDA is doing to increase consumer confidence.

“The first is food traceability, we are releasing a final rule later this year. We know from a food safety perspective that in the event of a food crisis, quickly tracing the source can allow us to withdraw the product from the market and shorten the epidemic curve, perform secondary intervention and prevent other diseases.We believe that better food traceability is a matter of transparency and that increasing this in the food system will engender trust,” he said.

“What is the opposite of transparency in food? To me that’s what we have in today’s food system, too much anonymity, we really don’t know where these products come from, under what conditions they were produced, what certifications they really have obtained and consumers do not know it either.

Data and consumer trust issues

The second action involves data, Yiannas said.

“I often say that better food safety will start and end with better data. We have the ability to use tools to convert large volumes of existing massive data into actionable preventive information. There’s this big gap, but new tools like artificial intelligence, machine learning and the Internet of Things are bridging that gap,” he said.

“In the age of data, collaboration will increasingly involve public-to-public and private-to-public organizations sharing data and converting it into information, and the entire food system will become smarter together. At the FDA, we are working on data trusts and have started a few projects to achieve this. »

Yiannas said we are experiencing a “mega loss of consumer confidence”.

“Social scientists tell us that consumers trust institutions, governments, businesses, corporations and even nonprofits less. On top of that, people are increasingly polarized over issues of politics, climate change and pandemic management. What about food? Do you think we as a society are becoming more polarized on food? I think the answer is yes,” he said.

“After three decades in the profession, I am sad to say that I see food increasingly dividing us. I think food should unite us. We hear people say I want local food, others say they’re ok with global food. Some people want organic and others are fine with conventional food, it tends to be more affordable. Some eat only natural foods and others accept processed foods. Today we have a problem in many countries where too much food is as bad as too little food.

“Never before in history has the responsibility of providing safe, available and sustainable food to so many people rested on the shoulders of so few and never before have the consequences of not achieving this right been greater.”

More than 4,200 attendees registered online for the four-day event and approximately 1,000 registered to attend in person. Of these, almost 90% come from Europe, the rest from Africa, Asia and North America.

EFSA’s perspective on One Health and the collaboration

Bernhard Url, EFSA’s executive director, said the speed of change is creating widespread uncertainty and anxiety.

Bernard URL

“The food system is in crisis: hunger, obesity, food waste, resource depletion and loss of biodiversity. With this conference, we would like to explore how food safety and more integrated health assessments can contribute to the transformation of food systems,” he said when opening the conference.

“The One Health concept aims to balance and improve the health of humans, animals and the environment. We believe the principles of One Health make it an ideal tool to support our work to address the complexity and urgency of the health challenges ahead. At EFSA, we believe that by applying these characteristics, our work on food safety will progress, be more fit for purpose and better inform policies aimed at transforming the food system. One Health acts as a springboard, linking food security to sustainable food systems.

Url said there is a need to see faster innovation in scientific methodologies to meet the challenges ahead.

“There is a problem of trust – how can we anchor our scientific advice in a society that is ready to accept it. Even if the outcome is not liked due to differences in values, people trust the process,” he said in a subsequent panel discussion.

“Everyone talks about collaboration and says yes, we need to collaborate more, it’s obvious but it’s not done enough, so what are the obstacles? I think something is fundamentally wrong here, so let’s fix it. Collaboration adds a layer of complexity, you lose autonomy and give something away for a bigger goal, which means it takes longer. There may be cultural or linguistic differences, the budgetary cycles and the objectives of the organizations are different. Maybe we need to make collaboration a goal of organizations and not just something that can help us on the sidelines. »

European Commission on regulation and the role of EFSA

Stella Kyriakides, European Commissioner for Health and Food Security, said trust in the food security system underpins more sustainable food systems.

Stella Kyriakides

“The COVID-19 pandemic and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine have highlighted how much we need a robust and resilient food system that provides sufficient and affordable food at all times,” he said. she declared.

“It also made us realize how interconnected our health, ecosystems, supply chains, consumption patterns and planetary boundaries are. The increasing recurrence of droughts, floods, wildfires and new pests constantly reminds us that our food system is under threat and needs to become more sustainable and resilient.

Kyriakides also mentioned the 20th anniversary of the General Food Law Regulation and the establishment of EFSA.

“The common definitions, objectives and general principles of the Regulation have redefined and shaped EU food law and policy. Chief among them is the principle of risk analysis, according to which food legislation should be based on science,” she said.

“EFSA’s scientific excellence has served to give EU measures a solid scientific basis. It maintained confidence in the EU food supply. It has improved EU food safety and standards and certainly helped raise international standards in the process. Thanks to EFSA and General Food Law, the European Union can boast of having one of the strongest and most effective food safety systems in the world. »

Brave founder slams DuckDuckGo’s browser for not removing Microsoft’s tracking parameters from URLs https://web-link.biz/brave-founder-slams-duckduckgos-browser-for-not-removing-microsofts-tracking-parameters-from-urls/ Sat, 18 Jun 2022 14:31:39 +0000 https://web-link.biz/brave-founder-slams-duckduckgos-browser-for-not-removing-microsofts-tracking-parameters-from-urls/ Remember the recent controversy surrounding the DuckDuckGo privacy browser?

Remember the recent controversy surrounding the DuckDuckGo privacy browser? It turns out that the app not only allows cookies from Microsoft’s trackers, but also allows users to be tracked via URLs.

Asked about the original problem, DuckDuckGo founder Gabriel Weinberg clarified that his company has a partnership with Microsoft, which prevents them from blocking ads. He played down the review, saying the search engine protects user anonymity, even when ads are displayed from the Redmond company, by blocking third-party cookies.

Brave Browser founder Brendan Eich doesn’t seem to have been happy with the flippant explanation given by the rival browser maker. In fact, he accused DuckDuckGo of lying to its users. (The source: Twitter)

DuckDuckGo’s browser has a built-in tracker blocker and cookie blocker, this should, on paper, prevent users from being tracked by ad networks, right? It does, but with a few exceptions.

Eich says that DuckDuckGo’s browser on macOS removes tracking parameters from URLs, if they come from third parties like Google or Facebook,

For example https://example.org/?fbclid=sample

Visiting the above URL in the DuckDuckGo browser on macOS removes the tracker from the address bar, which is how the Tracking Protection feature should work. However, when you use a similar link and replace it with Microsoft’s tracking method, such as the one below, the browser does not strip the query URL parameters.

https://example.org/?msclkid=sample

The tracker part is visible in the address bar of the browser even after loading the page.

When I tested extensions like ClearURLs, Redirect AMP to HTML extension, I explained how URL-based tracking works. Here is an overview of how users are generally tracked on the Internet.

If you click on a link in a web page and the URL has certain parameters such as an affiliate ID or other tracking elements, the website can know which link you clicked and, depending on its policies, can earn a commission from the destination. site to advertise. Similarly, the page you were redirected to may know what site you were on previously, i.e. how you got there (via a search, a specific article, a product promotion, etc.). This data could be used to profile your browsing habits, serve personalized advertisements, etc. In other words, it’s not good for privacy. Google’s AMP is perhaps the most notorious example of URL-based tracking, besides Facebook, of course.

Essentially, this method bypasses cookie-based tracking, to identify you across sites. If you take a look at DuckDuckGo’s GitHub page for Privacy Setup, you can see the list of tracking parameters it blocks. Guess which one is not on the list?

Let’s take a look at this support page on the Microsoft Advertising blog. He mentions that the Microsoft Click ID, which is the tracking parameter, msclkid, automatically adds a unique click ID to the landing page after a user clicks on an ad.

msclkid advertising

This is why Eich claimed that the cookieless tracking method is not blocked by the browser, because it is not in the code. He also speculated that DuckDuckGo circumvents Bing’s tracking protection, in order to generate revenue from Microsoft.

DuckDuckGo denies allowing link tracking in its browsers

A DuckDuckGo spokesperson said The register that the advertisements users see are private and are not used to track them. They denied Eich’s claims and said the tracking parameters merely sent a click through to the provider. Interestingly, the person also pointed out that no browser protects against link tracking (based on data from PrivacyTests) and that his browser has started protecting Google and Facebook users. The company has confirmed that it will block Twitter and Microsoft tracking settings in the future.

Of Greenburg vs. Wraydecided yesterday by Judge Douglas Rayes (D. Ariz.) (key legal point highlighted):

Amanda Wray runs a 2,000-member Facebook group… “dedicated to spreading anti-mask policies, anti-vaccine policies, anti-LGBTQ policies, and anti-Critical Race Theory policies within the Scottsdale Unified School District.” … Applicant[ Mark Greenburg]The son of is a member of…the elected governing body that runs Scottsdale Unified School District #48….

In response to the activities of the defendants [Wray and her husband] and the Facebook group, the plaintiff began collecting information about them, including photographs, video footage, third-party chats about them, personal comments and thoughts, and political memes. The plaintiff stored these recordings on his personal “Google Drive” server. The plaintiff specifically shared access to the server with three people (including the plaintiff’s son), who could access the server by logging into their own password-protected Google accounts. Although the requester didn’t realize it at the time, his Google Drive sharing settings also allowed anyone to access the server by entering the exact URL.

In 2021, the plaintiff’s son was charged with defamation. He responded to his accuser by emailing “13 photographs of public Facebook comments made by his accuser, some of which were stored on the server.” One of the photographs displayed the Google Drive URL, and this photograph came into Amanda’s possession, where she noticed the URL and asked a third party to hyperlink to the URL. Once provided, she clicked on it to access the Google Drive. She reviewed, downloaded, deleted, added, rearranged, renamed and publicly disclosed content from Google Drive.

The plaintiff learned of the access and hired a team of computer forensic consultants to conduct a damage assessment. He then sued the defendants under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act…, alleging a loss of at least $5,000….

To “successfully bring an action under 18 USC § 1030(g) based on a violation of 18 USC § 1030(a)(2)”, the plaintiff must allege that the defendants:

(1) intentionally accessed a computer, (2) without or beyond authorized access, and (3) thereby obtained information (4) from any protected computer (if conduct involved interstate or foreign communication), and that (5) there has been a loss to one or more persons during a period of one year aggregating a value of at least $5,000.

Citing hiQ Labs, Inc. vs. LinkedIn Corp. (9th Cir. 2022), defendants argue that plaintiff did not allege that Amanda accessed Google Drive without permission. In Hello, a data analysis company, hiQ, collected data on public LinkedIn profiles, data indexed by search engines. LinkedIn discovered this, sent hiQ a cease and desist letter, and imposed technical measures to prevent the public profile data from being deleted. But hiQ didn’t stop and instead sought a declaratory judgment that LinkedIn “could not legally invoke the CFAA” against it for deleting data found on LinkedIn’s public profiles. Identifier. Ultimately, the Ninth Circuit determined that the scraping of hiQ’s data did not fall within the scope of the CFAA because “anyone with a web browser” could access the data.

In review, the Ninth Circuit held that “the prohibition on unauthorized access is properly understood to apply only to private information – information defined as private through the use of an authorization requirement any”. Thus, for a website to fall under CFAA protection, it must have erected “limited access”. And while “anyone with a browser” could access the website, there were no access limitations.

It’s a close call. Plaintiff acknowledges that the portion of Google Drive accessed by Amanda was not password protected; The requester had inadvertently enabled the setting allowing anyone with the URL to access the site. But, the plaintiff alleges that this parameter did not in itself make Google Drive public, since the URL was a 68-character string.

Also, Google Drive was not indexed by any search engine, unlike the website of Hello. Therefore, it wasn’t just “anyone with a browser” who could stumble upon Google Drive while searching the web – the internet user wishing to access Google Drive had to get the exact URL in the browser. . In the eyes of the Court, the plaintiff alleges that Google Drive had limitations and therefore people trying to access it needed permission.

The plaintiff alleges that disclosing the URL – the limitation – did not grant Amanda permission to access Google Drive. He claims the disclosure was made inadvertently. As the Ninth Circuit recognized, inadvertent disclosure of the means surrounding an access limitation does not in itself grant authorization. Plaintiff has sufficiently pleaded the elements of a violation of 18 USC § 1030(a)(2).

Defendants then argue that Plaintiff’s claims of $5,000 in damages are too conclusive to state a claim. Not so. The plaintiff alleges that Amanda accessed Google Drive without permission, causing changes to the files stored there, and that he had to hire a forensic IT team to determine the extent of the damage, which he claims, cost at least $5,000. The plaintiff is not required to provide itemized receipts at the pleading stage….

    Did someone just ask you for a URL and you have no idea what they’re referring to? Allow us to explain what they are asking…


    Sometimes people like to look smart.

    They often do this using alternate words that you may not be familiar with.

    While the issue in question may also relate to the industry the person works in – if they work in IT, “URL” may often be a more appropriate word – there is usually a much clearer way to refer to this what is a URL.

    The majority of us use them every day, but at no point while using them is there any indication that they are referred to as a “URL”, so let us clarify that for you…

    What is a URL?

    A Uniform Resource Locator, or URL, is a method of identifying the origin of a resource on the web. It is what we use to access web pages as well as to download photos, movies, software applications and other types of items stored on a server.

    Double-clicking a file on your PC opens it, but we need to use URLs to access files on remote systems, such as web servers, so our web browser understands where to look.

    In many cases, “URL” is used instead of “web address”, so a URL can be as simple as a standard web address, such as “https://www.knowyourmobile.com/”.

    So unless someone asks for the URL of a specific image on the web, you can usually get away with linking them to the website.

    Examples of URLs

    As of this writing, the URL is obviously not live yet, but if you look at your search bar, you’ll see the URL looks like:

    “https://www.knowyourmobile.com/user-guides/what-is-a-url-how-do-they-work/”

    Or at least now I’m going to make sure he is.

    This is a base URL that locates the exact page you are currently viewing.

    However, a URL can be much more specific, like:

    “https://www.knowyourmobile.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/joe-rogan-morning-routine.jpg”

    Look, it’s Joe Rogan! Here’s the URL if you’d like to learn more about her morning routine (it’s as active as you’d imagine):

    “https://www.knowyourmobile.com/news/joe-rogans-morning-routine-is-as-active-as-youd-imagine/”

    How is a URL structured?

    Each part of a URL serves a specific purpose – it’s far from just random code.

    Here’s how the Joe Rogan photo URL can be broken down:

    • https://” is the protocol that defines the type of server you are communicating with.
    • Knowyourmobile” is the domain name or website name.
    • Comis the TLD or “top level domain”, similar to “.co.uk”, “.net” and others.
    • wp-content/uploads/2022/04” designates the web page or file directory. These are the actual directories you need to browse on the web server to locate the file specified by this URL.
    • Joe-rogan-morning-routine.jpg” is the file itself that the URL points to.

    URL syntax information

    A URL can only contain letters, numbers and the following characters: () ! $-‘ *+.

    To be approved, other characters must be encoded. Some URLs have parameters that separate them from other variables.

    Whether URL text is uppercase or lowercase is important in certain parts of a URL, especially everything after the domain name (directories and filename).

    When you see a question mark in a URL, it means you want to submit a particular command to a script hosted on Google’s server in order to receive personalized results.

    Anything placed after the ?q= section of the URL is detected as a search term by the particular script that Google uses to perform searches. So anything typed at this point in the URL is used to search on Google’s search engine.

    After a question mark, one or more ampersands are used in URLs that use multiple variables.

    The question mark will precede the first variable, but the next variable, the field keywords, will be preceded by an ampersand. An ampersand would also be used to separate other variables. “I’m looking for this? &this &this &this”.

    Depending on the context, some URLs can switch between arguments. Adding a timestamp to a YouTube video is a good example. An ampersand is required for some connections, while a question mark is required for others.

    Anchors can also be used in URLs. These are found at the bottom of the page and describe where the link will take you when you click on it. The pound sign is used to create anchors when adding links to a web page.

    Striking facts about URLs

    Sad that our URL discussion is coming to an end? Don’t worry, we’ve prepared some fun facts about URLs before we part with this discussion.

    Buckle up!

    • Some URLs are quite long and complicated, and it is advisable to click on them as links or copy/paste them into your browser’s address bar. A 400-series HTTP status code issue, the most common of which is a 404 error, can be caused by a typo in a URL.
    • The port name is not required in most URLs. It is possible to open google.com by adding the port number at the end, such as http://www.google.com:80, although this is not required. You can visit the page by changing the port to 8080 if the website was running on that port.
    • If a URL points to a file that your web browser can display, such as a JPG image, you don’t need to download it to your machine to view it. You will be asked to upload files that are not normally displayed in the browser, such as PDFs and DOCX files, including EXE files.
    • FTP sites use port 21 by design, although some may use port 22 or something else. If the FTP site does not use port 21, you must specify which port it uses in order to connect correctly to the server. The same principle applies to any URL that uses a port other than the one the software used to access expects by default.
