Suggested January 2024 Google Shares Insights Into Indexing & Crawl Budget

Google recently published a podcast discussing what’s known as a crawl budget and what influences Google to index content.

Both Gary Illyes and Martin Splitt shared insights into indexing the web, as understood from Google’s perspective.

Origin of the Crawl Budget Concept

Gary Illyes said that the concept of a crawl budget was something created outside of Google by the search community.

He explained there wasn’t any one thing internally within Google that corresponded with the idea of a crawl budget.

When people talked about a crawl budget, what was happening inside Google involved multiple metrics, not this one thing called a crawl budget.

So inside Google they talked about what could represent a crawl budget and came up with a way of talking about it.

He said:

“…for the longest time we were saying that we don’t have the concept of crawl budget. And it was true.

We didn’t have something that could mean crawl budget on its own- the same way we don’t have a number for EAT, for example.

And then, because people were talking about it, we tried to come up with something… at least, somehow defined.

And then we worked with two or three or four teams– I don’t remember– where we tried to come up with at least a few internal metrics that could map together into something that people externally define as crawl budget.”

What Crawl Budget Means Within Google

According to Gary, part of the calculation for a crawl budget is based on practical considerations like how many URLs does the server allow Googlebot to crawl without overloading the server.

Gary Illyes and Martin Splitt:

“Gary Illyes: …we defined it as the number of URLs Googlebot can and is willing or is instructed to crawl.”

Martin Splitt: For a given site.

Gary Illyes: For a given site, yes.

And for us, that’s roughly what crawl budget means because if you think about it, we don’t want to harm websites because Googlebot has enough Chrome capacity to bring down sites…”

Balancing Different Considerations

Another interesting point that was made was how, in relation to crawling, there are different considerations involved. There are limits to what can be stored so, according to Google, that means utilizing Google’s resources “where it matters.”

“Martin Splitt: Apparently, obviously, everyone wants everything to be indexed as quickly as possible, be it the new website that just came online or be it websites that have plenty of pages, and they want to frequently change those, and they’re worried about things not being crawled as quickly.

I usually describe it as a challenge with the balance between not overwhelming the website and also spending our resources where it matters.”

John Mueller recently tweeted that Google doesn’t index everything and mentioned that not everything is useful.

Mueller’s tweet:

“…it’s important to keep in mind that Google just doesn’t index every page on the web, even if it’s submitted directly. If there’s no error, it might get selected for indexing over time — or Google might just focus on some other pages on your site.”

He followed up with another tweet:

“Well, lots of SEOs & sites (perhaps not you/yours!) produce terrible content that’s not worth indexing. Just because it exists doesn’t mean it’s useful to users.”

Martin Splitt calls the process of crawling an issue of “spending our resources where it matters.”

John Mueller mentioned if the content is “useful to users.”

For example, I recently reviewed a YMYL site where the entire site looked like it was created from an SEO to-do checklist.

Create an Author profile

Author profile should have a LinkedIn Page

Keyword optimize the traffic

Link out to “authority” sites

The publisher was using AI generated images for the author bio, which was also used on a fake LinkedIn profile.

Many of the webpages of the site linked to thin .gov pages that have the keywords in the title but are not useful at all.  It was like they didn’t even look at the government page to judge if it was worth linking to.

Outwardly, they were ticking the boxes of an SEO to-do checklist, completing rote SEO activities such as linking to a .gov site, creating an author profile, etc.

They created the outward appearance of quality but not really achieving it because at every step they didn’t consider whether what they were doing was useful.

Crawl Budget Is Not Something To Worry About

Gary and Martin began talking about how most sites don’t need to worry about the crawl budget.

Gary pointed the finger at blogs in the search industry that in the past promoted the idea that the crawl budget is something to worry about when according to him it’s not something to worry about.

He said:

“I think it’s partly a fear of something happening that they can’t control, that people can’t control, and the other thing is just misinformation.

…And there were some blogs back in the days where people were talking about crawl budget, and it’s so important, and then people were finding that, and they were getting confused about “Do I have to worry about crawl budget or not?”

Martin Splitt asked:

“But let’s say you were an interesting blog… Do you need to worry about crawl budget?”

And Gary responded:

“I think most people don’t have to worry about it, and when I say most, it’s probably over 90% of sites on the internet don’t have to worry about it.”

A few minutes later in the podcast Martin observed:

“But people are worried about it, and I’m not exactly sure where it comes from.

I think it comes from the fact that a few large-scale websites do have articles and blog posts where they talk about crawl budget being a thing.

It is being discussed in SEO training courses. As far as I’ve seen, it’s being discussed at conferences.

But it’s a problem that is rare to be had. Like it’s not a thing that every website suffers, and yet, people are very nervous about it.”

How Google Determines What to Index

What followed next was a discussion about factors that cause Google to index content.

Of interest is when Gary talks about wanting to index content that might be searched for.

Gary Illyes:

“…Because like we said, we don’t have infinite space, so we want to index stuff that we think– well, not we– but our algorithms determine that it might be searched for at some point, and if we don’t have signals, for example, yet, about a certain site or a certain URL or whatever, then how would we know that we need to crawl that for indexing?”

Gary Google Search Central tech writer, Lizzi Sassman (@okaylizzi),  next talked about inferring from the rest of the site whether or not it’s worth indexing new content.

“And some things you can infer from– for example, if you launch a new blog on your main site, for example, and you have a new blog subdirectory, for example, then we can sort of infer, based on the whole site, whether we want to crawl a lot from that blog or not.

frequent it’s still to be determined.

Gary Illyes: But we need a starter signal.

Lizzi Sassman: And the starter signal is…

Gary Illyes: Infer from the main site.”

Gary then pivoted to talking about quality signals. The quality signals they talked about though were whether signals related to user interest, like, are people interested in this product? Are people interested in this site?

He explained:

“But it’s not just update frequency. It’s also the quality signals that the main site has.

So, for example, if we see that a certain pattern is very popular on the Internet, like a slash product is very popular on the Internet, and people on Reddit are talking about it, other sites are linking to URLs in that pattern, then it’s a signal for us that people like the site in general.”

Gary continues talking about the popularity and interest signals but in the context of the conversation, which is a new section of a site that’s been launched.

In the discussion he calls the new section a Directory.


“While if you have something that people are not linking to, and then you are trying to launch a new directory, it’s like, well, people don’t like the site, then why would we crawl this new directory that you just launched?

And eventually, if people just start linking to it–“

Crawl Budget and Sites that Get Indexed

To recap some of what was discussed:

Google doesn’t have infinite capacity and can’t index everything on the web.

Because Google can’t index everything, it’s important to be selective by indexing only the content that matters.

Content topics that matter tends to be discussed

Sites that are important, which tend to be useful, tend to be discussed and linked to

Obviously, that’s not a comprehensive list of everything that influences what gets indexed. Nor is it meant to be an SEO checklist.

It’s just an idea of the kinds of things that are so important that Gary Illyes and Martin Splitt discussed it.

Google Launches Search Console Insights

Google is introducing a new experience called Search Console Insights which is designed to help site owners better understand their audience.

This experience joins data from both Search Console and Google Analytics in a joint effort to make it easy to understand content performance.

Data in Search Console Insights will help site owners answer question such as:

What are your best performing pieces of content, and which ones are trending?

How do people discover your content across the web?

What do people search for on Google before they visit your content?

Which article refers users to your website and content?

Site owners can access Search Console Insights via the new link at the top of the Overview page. Soon it will be accessible from Googles iOS app, with support for the Android app being planned as well.

Another way to access the data is by searching Google for a query that your site ranks for. This will return a Google-powered result at the top of the page titled “Search performance for this query.”

It’s possible to utilize Search Console Insights without Google Analytics, though it’s necessary to link the two in order to get the full experience.

Search Console Insights only supports Google Analytics UA properties at this time, though the company is working to support Google Analytics 4.

This new experience will gradually be rolled out to all Search Console users in the upcoming days.

Almost a Year of Testing

Google has been testing Search Console Insights for nearly a year. We covered the launch of a closed beta test back in August 2023.

It appears the tool is still in its beta testing stage. The main difference between the two rollouts is Search Console Insights will soon be available to everyone, whereas last year it was available by invite only.

Aside from availability, there’s no announced changes between the version that was available in August 2023, and the version that will be available in the coming days.

It’s reasonable to think Google may have tweaked a few things during that time, but the company doesn’t highlight any updates.

Look for this new data available soon in your Search Console dashboard.

Google Launching New Version Of Pagespeed Insights

Google is launching a new version of PageSpeed Insights that aims to address many of the challenges of the existing version.

One of the biggest problems with PageSpeed Insights is how data is presented. There’s no clear separation between lab data and field data.

People who are new to PageSpeed Insights may not understand the context of the data they’re looking at, which makes it difficult to know what to do with it.

Many “how to” blog posts have been written on the subject of interpreting the PageSpeed Insights report, which is mainly due to the confusion created by its design.

The version of PageSpeed Insights that’s on the web today is using 10-year-old code, and Google says it’s time for a redesign.

With the update rolling out later this year, Google hopes to make interpreting the report easier for developers so they can quickly act on the insights included in it.

Google’s primary goals with the upcoming PageSpeed Insights revamp include:

Make the UI more intuitive by differentiating between lab data and field data.

Communicate how the Core Web Vitals assessment is calculated in the UI.

Modernize the look and feel of the UI by leveraging material design.

Here’s more about what Google has planned for the new version of one of its oldest tools.

Updates Coming to Google PageSpeed Insights

Google is rolling out the following updates to PageSpeed Insights later this year:

Separation of field and lab data: Existing labels for “Field Data” and “Lab data” are getting replaced with text that indicates what the data means and how it can help.

Core Web Vitals assessment: Currently, Google’s CWV assessment appears as a single word “passed” or “failed.” The updated assessment will appear in a separate subsection with its own icon.

Labels for mobile and desktop performance: Google is changing the navigation menu at the top to include links for mobile and desktop on the report page.

Origin Summary: Google is moving this report section to a new tab, “Origin”, under the Field Data section.

Expand view: A new “expand view” feature adds a function to the field data section that allows users to view granular details for the Core Web Vitals metrics.

Page image: Google is removing the image of the loaded page from its current location, which is next to the field data. The image and thumbnails will both be available in the lab data section.

Lastly, Google is adding a section at the bottom of every field and lab card that displays the following details about the sampled data:

Data collection period

Visit durations


Network connections

Sample size

Chrome versions

This additional information should make the distinction between lab and field data even clearer which will help users who were previously confused about the two data sources.

There’s no firm release date for the new PageSpeed Insights, but Google will share further updates as it gets closer to launch time.

Can’t Sign Into Gmail Account? Try Google Account Recovery!

Gmail is one of the popular free email service providers. If you encounter the issue where you can’t sign into Gmail Account, then please read through this article for the cases and resolutions. Since the Gmail account is the same as your generic Google account, the issue could also be useful in you can’t sign into Google Account.

Can’t sign into Gmail Account

Since the causes could be different, we have discussed each case with the resolution. Thus, try the following solutions sequentially to resolve the issue in discussion:

Did you forget your password

Did you forget the username itself

Try account recovery

Make sure your account isn’t suspended or disabled

Clear browser cache and cookies

Change the browser

The issue is with 2-factor authentication

You are under 13 years of age

You are using VPN

Google or Gmail Recovery Tool 1] Did you forget your password

If you are trying to log in to your Gmail account and the specific error message is that the password is incorrect, then it is quite possible that you have forgotten your Gmail password. In this case, you can use the Gmail recovery tool. You will get a verification code at your registered phone number or alternate email ID.

2] Did you forget the username itself

In case you forgot the username, then it could be an even more difficult problem. In this case, if you remember the associated phone number or alternate email ID, then try the username recovery tool at chúng tôi You will also need the full name associated with that account.

If you do not remember these credentials either, then you would have to ask a person to whom you remember sending an email in the past and ask him/her to check the senders email address.

3] Try account recovery

If you are sure that you remember the username and password correctly and still are unable to log in, then try account recovery. But before that, be very sure that you are entering the right credentials. You can recover your account through the Gmail Recovery Tool whose link has been given above.

4] Make sure your account isn’t suspended or disabled

5] Check if cookies are turned OFF

If cookies are turned OFF on your browser, Gmail might not work properly. In this case, you can consider enabling cookies on your favorite browser. Once cookies are enabled for both the Google and Gmail website, it should work smoothly.

5] Clear browser cache and cookies

If the cache and cookie files associated with Gmail and Google are corrupt, then the website associated with these files will also face problems. In this case, it will be a wise idea to delete these cache and cookie files. Don’t worry, they will rebuild themselves once you reopen the website.

6] Change the browser

If you have figured out that the problem is with the browser, then changing the browser will help isolate the cause. It can also serve as a useful workaround to temporarily fix the problem. However, if changing the browser doesn’t help either, the real issue has nothing to do with the browser itself.

7] Issue is with 2-factor authentication

If your account uses 2-factor authentication, you will have to approve the same through a text message code to the registered phone number or the authenticator app. Now the thing is that most Android phones come pre-installed with the authenticator app. This means that you will not get an SMS, but it will prompt on your phone directly. So, you can approve accordingly.

8] You are under 13 years of age

Google allows users of age under 13 or as applicable per regional laws to use their services but only with family supervision. This is activated through the Family link. If you are trying to use Gmail against Google’s policies, it might not let you in.

9] You are using VPN

If you are using a VPN to log in to Google and the location has been chosen as a far-off destination, Google will not allow you to log in to Gmail. This is because it will assume that a cyber-criminal is trying to intrude into your account. Simply speaking, one person cannot change locations so soon.

One last case is if you are trying to log in to Gmail through third-party services like Microsoft Outlook. This is a vast topic for discussion and requires application-specific troubleshooting.

TIP: Locked out of Google Account? Follow these Google Account recovery steps

Is Gmail down today?

If the Gmail or Google server is down, no matter what you try, you will neither be able to login to Gmail nor use its services if you were already logged in. In this case, it is important to check the status of the Gmail server, which can be done using online website monitor tools.

Why is Gmail not accepting my password?

Total Recall Director Len Wiseman Shares His Sci

Total Recall director Len Wiseman shares his sci-fi love with SlashGear

This past week we got the opportunity to sit down with film director Len Wiseman at the Los Angeles press junket for the newest science fiction blockbuster of the summer: Total Recall. Wiseman revealed that not only is he a long-standing superfan of science fiction in general, he’s had a bit of a history with the original Philip K Dick short story that inspired the 1990 film Total Recall – and of course loves Arnold as well. Have a peek at this 2012-based vision for the future from the meistro’s seat right here and now.

Also be sure to check out our full review of Total Recall (2012) and stay tuned for a collection of interviews just such as this one coming up over the course of the week – we’ve got Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, and your favorite and mine: Bryan Cranston – coming up soon as well!

[Wiseman] It started with a phone call. I wasn’t aware there was a Total Recall script being put together so it was a surprise to me. Neal called me and had me come down and read it – and I went into it with quite a bit of hesitation, first off, being a film of the first film but also being a part of Die Hard as a franchise. I’d just gotten done with a previous project and I wasn’t ready to go through with this at first, I was still developing some things of my own.

So it was one of those projects that I read wanting not to like it, but I felt like I should just read it, and I’d been wanting to work with Neil for a long time, so – as I went through it it became more ‘ah man, this is actually pretty good.” And then I just got hooked. So that’s what it was initially, it was just at first trepidation, then just really loving the new take on the script – that’s how it all started for me.

From left: Brian Cranston, Jessica Biel, Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, and Len Wiseman as they appeared in Los Angeles for the Total Recall junket.

[Q] Obviously you stayed away from wise-crackery which was one of the trademarks of the original movie but there were lines, you did keep actual lines – what was your take on that?

[W] Yeah we did kind of our own take on certain lines and there were certain things that – you know – it’s a tough mix to bring in things that are familiar – and the original script, it deviates so much [from the original film], especially towards the second half. This film doesn’t go to Mars, and the second and third act [of the 1990 film] are on Mars. So there were some things that I wanted to bring in that were familiar. But the lines and things that we have are just slightly skewed in a different tone.

[Q] What were some of your influences in developing the look of the film?

[W] That’s such a hard question to answer because there are so many influences in being such a fan of science fiction in general. So a lot of it – for me – I collect a lot of science fiction artwork, and always have, so if you go to my house it’s just geek out, it’s like a library of science fiction material.

And then a lot of the elements, the colony world specifically, where part of what influences or builds out this world is a melting pot of different societies. Because the world is at a point where there are only two zones that are inhabitable. So it was drawing in on a lot of that district in Brazil, there’s a lot of asian influence, and there’s a lot in terms of architecture to put those things together.

[aquote]Everything from Blade Runner to Aliens and Star Wars.[/aquote]

And then everything I’ve been growing up with, sci-fis, everything from Blade Runner to Aliens and Star Wars. It’s probably endless in terms of what is probably engrained in our minds and what we’ve got to draw from, ideas where you don’t exactly know what you’re influenced by. I can’t say specifically, but you’re influenced by watching movies like this and reading books and comic books and everything since I was a kid.

[Q] Can you talk about working with Kate [Beckinsale, aka Wiseman’s wife] and speak on if she was always going to play the role she’s in or if she was considered for the other female lead in the film?

[W] She was never considered for the other role, I had considered her for the Lori role early on. It was just a combination of what I wanted Lori to be which was not exactly what was on the page. I just had the confidence and knew what Kate could bring to it. And then schedules changed and they pulled up her Underworld schedule.

So she took off to do Underworld which just meant that this was cancelled out and so we started a long casting process but it was just not going to happen. And then my movie got pushed. Luckily I was behind, so we got pushed back 3 weeks which created literally a 2 day window. She finished up Underworld, we put her on a plane, she came out. So there was this weird process – it was something that I was excited about, that happened, and then the schedules opened up again.

[aquote]She finished up Underworld, we put her on a plane, she came out.[/aquote]

[Q] With both Underworld and Total Recall both being action movies, what did you do to push the envelope with Kate and make things different?

[W] I think it’s always different. It’s just movies in general, it’s such a wonderful business because as much as you feel like you’re crafting or fine tuning your career route, each movie is a completely different challenge, so it’s different even with those little details. Every fight sequence is different, and everything even in just the terms of the action sequences, it’s always different.

So I can really enjoy that, and she’s been in enough of these [action movies] now where it’s not starting from ground zero, where she’s just terrified to throw a punch. She’s not the same girl now. So that part gets a lot easier. So it’s always different, which is great.

[Q] The idea of class separated society is an element that’s present both in the Philip K Dick story and here in the movie, and fortuitously the Occupy Movement started after you’d envisioned this whole thing – how did that factor into this movie, with the class warfare aspect of it all?

[Q] Was there talk of any cameos from the original film planned or executed here in 2012?

[W] There was talk of it, I was tempted as just a fan of the original. I think of the original Total Recall as an Arnold movie. I wasn’t really aware of Philip K Dick at the time, I was 14, and I was just went to see – I want to see the Arnold film. So there was talk about it very early on, there was talk of Sharon Stone, and I don’t know if they were contacted, I’m not sure. But as we started to develop our film, I didn’t want to distract too much. So it would be a fun idea, and that fan in me really wanted to see it happen, just the storyteller [won me over]. Every time I’ve seen it happen – Lou Ferrigno shows up in the Hulk – it does take me out of it. It just seems Comic Con a little bit too much.

[Q] What elements were you insistent on keeping from the first one? Obviously like the three breasted hooker was a memorable one: were there any ideas you wanted to keep?

[W] Yeah the first thing I wanted in there, it’s absolutely one of the things I remember most about the original one, and it’s just at the core of this concept was the representative from Rekall comes back in and sets the stage. And tells Quaid that he’s actually living out a fantasy. And it’s that great core battle of fantasy vs reality. That was one of the things that I wanted to make sure that was really fleshed out, and then to push it further, was one.

Then some of the fun more superficial stuff we just wanted to put in: I had made a list, a list of about 10 things or so that I remembered from the film before I went back and watched it. And it had been about 20 years for me since I’d seen it, so I wanted to write that out before I watched it again. I thought that if those were things that had stuck with me through the years, that I would want to highlight some of those.

[aquote]I made a list of about 10 things I remembered from the film before I went back and watched it.[/aquote]

And they were things like – the three breasted woman was one of the top things, like I said I was 14, so that was very memorable to me. And then I just remembered Arnold pulling that big tracker out of his nose, freaking out about that, and going through the immigration booth with the heavy set red-headed lady. There were a lot of moments that I remembered. So we just wanted to put them in in a different twist. We give an homage to them but we switch em up, twist em up a bit.

[Q] Where there any things like Johnny Cab that you wanted in there or thought about but couldn’t get in there for one reason or another?

[W] Yeah there were things that – I’m trying to think of them – actually Johnny Cab was one of them, but it didn’t end up applying to us. There was also actually an element, the oxygen element that didn’t really fit in to our storyline. Obviously, we don’t go to Mars. But at one point there was a sub-plot about an oxygen level within the colony, but within this universe and on the planet it just didn’t make much sense.

[Q] Could you talk about choosing Colin Farrell, you spoke about going specifically to see an Arnold movie where comparatively Colin Farrell is a more real actor – and could you talk about that shift in dynamic?

[W] I had absolutely no intention of replacing Arnold. And there were a few things that made me want to do the movie, the first that the script took a different direction to it, and a different tone, and this was a chance to do a very different kind of Quaid. I didn’t read the short story until I went to college, so I had kind of a reverse knowledge of it.

I had seen it first as an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, then it wasn’t until college that I read Philip K Dick’s story and I remember at the time thinking, ‘oh that’s that Arnold movie that I love when I was in high school’, and just reading the story had a very different effect on me than what I remember, just from the tone of the story. And Quaid, or Quail as he is in the story, is a bit more of an everyman.

[aquote]If Colin Farrell is the every-man then I’m living in the wrong city![/aquote]

So I wanted somebody that you could just relate to a bit more. The whole idea of that story was that it has such a strong wish fulfillment to it – of a man that wishes he could be more, then turns into a super spy, verses my recollection of what I felt when I watched the original Total Recall: we’re watching a guy who you already feel is a super spy because we’ve seen him in such a capacity. So I wanted a guy who was, I think of an everyman.

My sister-in-law says that, ‘if Colin Farrell is the every-man then I’m living in the wrong city.’ *laughter* So he’s the Hollywood everyman, I guess. So that was exciting to me, when it first came out there was so much talk about, ‘who’s gonna replace Arnold.’ And The Rock came up, all these wrestlers, all these people that I was totally unaware of.

[Q] Did they pitch these actors and ideas to you, or what?

[W] Ah no, it was all over, like, online. Speculation about who the next Arnold was going to be. And I was like, ‘alright, when I announce who the next Quaid is going to be, and not the next Arnold, maybe they’ll like it and maybe they won’t.’ But it was quite a reaction and very well received and I think it immediately helps to set a tone of what we’re trying to do.

[Q] Where there any other actors that were considered for the role?

[W] Just The Rock. Ha, no. No, he was my first choice which, I feel like a director rarely talks about if you don’t, you don’t have that conversation. Like, ‘he wasn’t my first choice but man, he worked out great.’ *laughter*

[W] I’m actually glad to not have to cover or navigate around, he was my first choice and it was great, it was a situation where, also with Kate, it just works out. Bryan Cranston, who I was watching on – I had really been sucked into Breaking Bad at the time, and I was thinking, one, I want to work with this man at some point. He’s fantastic. And then when the script came about I thought he’d be perfect, and, first choice, yeah that was really fun.

[Q] What were you considering when Colin Farrell was cast, were you thinking international appeal, his accent, what do you think about when you put that together? Because obviously the movie has to hang on this guy, is he a big enough box office star, is he a good enough every-man and appealing?

[W] To be completely honest I didn’t think of any of those things, I thought just simply that he’s a fantastic actor. And I want to take an actor and more so, if anything, my job would be to turn an actor into an action star rather than an action star into an actor. That rarely works. I want to start with just a really good actor.

And when you put his whole body of work together: we just said we’re going to create Quaid. Just as a starting point, as a springboard, there were elements of Quaid, the Quaid that I had read, the one that I had pictured: a little bit of Phonebooth, a little bit of In Bruges, a little bit of – he’s done so much. So it was really that.

It was really that I wanted to work with an actor for Quaid, I really want to push that, everything like the physicality, once this character has to turn into this super spy, you have to really believe him. But that’s more of a thing that’s just getting people into the gym and working with stunt players and all of that. I want the security of a fantastic actor.

[Q] Did Colin feel bad about fighting with Kate ever? Or did he just go for it?

[aquote]I think he felt ok after she blasted him in the neck at one point.[/aquote]

[W] He didn’t tell me then, but he tells me now that it was a little bit nerve-racking just because of the fact that it’s the director’s wife. I think it would be kind of weird, I guess. I think he felt ok after she blasted him in the neck at one point. So I think then it was ok for the gloves to come off.

[Q] Could you speak on the conceptual design, the whole look of the film, and all the little gadgets (like the hand phone), and how real this film’s environment is compared to other concepts that films have presented?

[W] It was definitely a large part of the focus for me to have it all. I love science fiction more than the fantasy, and the distinction of how science fiction is based off of science. And where science could possibly go. It’s such a what-if quality where fantasy is kind of the study of a different thing, so I’ve been drawn towards that, and it’s this reality of: these things could possibly happen.

So it was very much – for instance that palm cell phone – I want to think that a think like that crazy of an idea [could be real.]

I saw something, it was a while ago, where it was in Japan and they were putting in LCD tattoos, that they were putting into the skin. Whether it ever came through or not. But the LCD tattoos that you see in the film as well as the phone systems – what they’re also doing is the car.

[W] With the car design we were talking to an engineer that you guys were really developing things in a way where that makes sense to how the world would progress, in a sense. At some point were going to have to start building up. You’re going to run out of room to build houses. And once you build up you have to design and build in a way with a transportation system that will also accommodate that. So that’s what we’ve done.

So yes, I’ve very much into what could possibly happen.

[Q] When Quaid is in the bank and opens up his safe and gets his money – did you have input as to who was on those bills?

[Q] Do you have any independent projects coming up?

[aquote]I love to build worlds … it’s what I got into this industry to do.[/aquote]

[W] Yeah, you know, people say why did you take three years off after Die Hard – I have not taken one day off since after Die Hard. I have been actively developing projects that didn’t go through for various reasons – mainly of budget. It’s really difficult to get an original idea that’s not attached to a comic book or a book itself or some awareness that’s over a hundred million dollars.

And I love to build worlds, since I was a kid, it’s what I got into this industry to do. Three of those projects were ones that I had written, seven months here, with Tom Cruise, and folks saying ‘this is gonna happen’, and the budget doesn’t add up.

[Q] What one was that?

[W] It was a movie called Motorcade, it had Dreamworks, and he took off to do [something else] – and the funding wasn’t coming through, it was expensive, and it was an original title, and he went to do The Time of Day.

[Q] Do you have a Rekall fantasy yourself?

[W] Rekall fantasy myself, ah, god. Probably too many. I would love to travel to the future, just to file some things so there’s no guesswork.

[Q] What effect does working with your Wife onset have on your marriage – do you ever feel like you’re working together too much?

[W] No, it’s a weird thing. And there’s lots of directors that work with plenty of the same actors, over and over, many more times than I have. And actually I’ve worked with Bill Nye more times than I’ve worked with Kate, and I’m not married to Bill Nye, so that never comes up. I love to work with actors where I know what I’m going to get from them, as many others do, so it’s not something – you build as well as you would accrue, as well, you build up the people. It’s so risky, there are people you know you can trust, you know what you’re going to get from them, its why directors do it a lot of times.

But if people would say, ‘you’ve hired Bill Nye too many times’, I’d say, ‘well I don’t care.’ He’s fantastic.

Insights On Change Control Management

Each organization has to embrace change to grow, irrespective of its size and nature. These changes can be the requested ones or the unplanned and unexpected changes, like changes in customer trends. Whatever the change is, the manager has to work with the team and the supervisors to address and analyze them before implementing them in the organization. The team carefully evaluates the effects of the change on the company, its long−term objectives, employees, and other resources. Based on this, the change is either accepted or rejected. In this post, we will discuss all that you need to know about change control management. Keep reading.

What is Change Control Management?

Change control management is a set of procedures followed to ensure the changes are implemented as required, that no organizational process or resources are disrupted, and that the resources are used efficiently to ensure smooth functioning. No company can survive long without making changes to its procedures.

Not adapting to these changes can result in the business losing its competitive edge over time. That’s because customers’ demands, technology, and the business environment keep evolving. A change could be upgrading or downgrading your services, adding a new product line, implementing new technology, discontinuing certain products or tools, etc. The question is, how do you ensure that other areas of your business remain unaffected by these changes? In other words, what’s the best and most effective way to implement changes in your organization?

Steps in Change Control Management

Change is not a one−time procedure but an ongoing process. It is an inevitable part of the company’s growth. The best you can do is adapt to these changes in a way that benefits your organization and promote your business’ growth in the long run. Below we have compiled a list of some effective steps you must take to implement change control management.

Hire the Right People

Selecting the right people for change control management is key to a successful change control plan. You don’t want the meetings to be delayed or the new product addition to cause problems in your current work procedures just because you have delegated this part to unskilled people. Your best bet is to add people from different departments and varying levels of expertise, such as HR experts, accountants, legal service providers, IT specialists, marketing members, and so on. Remember, the team you select for change control management will determine the success or failure of the change implementation. Delegate this responsibility to trusted candidates that have a proven track record.


Like any other management process, implementing a change requires a planned strategy. An effective plan works as a roadmap that shows you where to start, how to go about implementing a change, and how to finish. In this phase, you need to list the resources you will use throughout the project execution, the total budget you have and estimated expenses you will incur in implementation, the objectives of bringing this change, and how it will affect the other areas of your business.

You need to outline the project with detailed steps and expected results. Once you have planned and documented everything, you need to send it to the higher−level management for approval. You can proceed with the plan once you get the green light.

Effective Communication

When implementing a change, the manager and stakeholders must concisely communicate their goals with the employees. The results of any project depend on how well the process of execution was communicated to the team. From planning to implementation, each step between these processes must be discussed before starting work on them.

Project Post-Mortem

Project managers must have heard of project post−mortem. It is practiced after completing the project and is used to evaluate the results. During a project post−mortem, the manager conducts a meeting with the team, stakeholders, clients, and other people involved in the project to discuss whether the project was successful or if it met the original target.

In this discussion, the team reveals their experiences working on different tasks. If the project fails, the stakeholders and the employees discuss the root causes of the failure and what they could have done better to avoid the mistakes. When you are implementing a new change to the company, it’s important that you conduct a project post−mortem to analyze the success or failure of the project. This will help the team to understand where they made mistakes and how they can improve.

Review, Revise, and Improve

Not every plan turns out as well as you discussed with the team. Reviewing it at every stage is crucial to ensure that you are on the right track and each process has been carried out as planned. If anything doesn’t go according to your plan, you can review and revise it to suit your requirements. Several changes are made during the project execution to ensure the best results without going over the budget and exceeding the deadline.

Why Does Every Organization Need Change Control Management?

No company can grow without implementing changes in its procedures, service, product line, customer support, technology, marketing, and other departments. You need a change control management solution to implement these changes effectively. Here’s why you need them −

Build an organizational culture that promotes change and mitigates the risk of its failure after deployment.

Ensure seamless communication throughout the change implementation journey.

Plan the resources, skills, and costs required to execute the project effectively.

Reduce cost and ensure the project is completed within budget.

Establish a deadline for the project and ensure that it’s completed by then.

Collect feedback from employees at every stage of project execution to track the progress of change implementation and how it is affecting your business.


Regardless of the industry, you are working in, you can’t avoid change. How you adapt to and implement these changes plays a crucial role in determining your company’s success. The change control management will help you monitor these changes and reduce the risk of failure.
