    How Google ate CelebrityNetWorth.com

    Google’s Featured Snippets are not only often wrong, they’re also damaging to small businesses that depend on search traffic.

Currently, about 1.5% of homes have solar panels installed on the roof removing the need for about 14 TW hours of power from utility companies.
