This week in search Google deduplicated, as they are calling it, the featured snippets URLs, so if you have a featured snippet, that URL will only show in the search results page once. Google’s Search Console performance reports are not impacted by this. Some think there was also a Google search algorithm update around the same time, but hard to tell. Google also announced it is dropping support for data-vocabulary.org soon, but microfomats and schema.org are...

Here is a recap of what happened in the search forums today, through the eyes of the Search Engine Roundtable[1] and other search forums on the web. Search Engine Roundtable Stories: Search Buzz Video Recap: Google Featured Snippet Deduplication, Data-Vocabulary Deprecation, Google Datasets Search & More[2]This week in search Google deduplicated, as they are calling it, the featured snippets URLs, so if you have a featured snippet...

This is going to be a hard one to judge because I see chatter within the SEO community and also many of the tracking tools are lighting up. These are all signs that there was a Google search ranking algorithm update[1]. But truth is, this can be directly related to the featured snippet deduplication change[2] on January 22nd. What I am saying is that the tools might not be ready to process the change and thus are...

Just to be clear, and honestly, I am surprised so many people do not know this, but the featured snippet change from the other day[1] has no impact on the Google Search Console performance reports. That report only counts the top-most result anyway, so the lower results on the page did not count anyway. So many people were asking Google about how this impacts those reports, Google had to respond to that question numerous times. Google wrote on...

Google announced this a while back but now it seems to be rolling out. Profile icons for your local knowledge panel is now showing up on many local knowledge panels. Google has been testing this for about a year but it should be live for most businesses. Here is an example for my business: Here are more examples from Twitter: @somsenater[1]: @anillzenginn[2]: Joy says this seems to be live now: I believe it's rolled out now. I'm seeing it too. People that...

Google announced[1] that Google Dataset Search which launched in beta in 2018[2] is now out of beta. With that launch, it added several new features. This can probably be used for awesome research when developing rich content and might also send traffic to your site if you implement the correct datasets schema markup. I covered the launch at Search Engine Land[3] but worth a mention here as well. The new features include that you can filter the results...

Some folks are seeing Google test the old Google desktop search interface. Remember the one before Google launched those (what I feel are horrible) favicons and black ad labels[1] for the snippets? Yea, Google is testing showing the old interface to some searchers. I saw at least two tweets mentioning this to me, here they are: Saw that last night too. — Dawn Anderson (@dawnieando) January 24, 2020[2] Fav icons in Google Search stopped showing ...

I am not going to lie, there are times I miss the old days, the old SEO days. Here is a photo from I think the first Google Dance in 2006. You can see the young Sergey Brin from Google talking with some of the first ever SEOs Heather Lloyd-Martin[1] & Detlef Johnson[2]. This was at the GooglePlex in Mountain View, California. I remember taking a limo with a bunch of SEOs to the event. My wife even...

Here is a recap of what happened in the search forums today, through the eyes of the Search Engine Roundtable[1] and other search forums on the web. Search Engine Roundtable Stories: Google Now Drops A Site's Normal Snippet When Featured Snippet Is Displayed[2]In November 2019 we saw Google testing removing the normal snippet from the Google search results when Google shows a featured snippet for that site/URL. Well after numerous tests, Google has launched this yesterday and is...

John Mueller from Google said that he once messed with web site hacker who hacked content onto one of his sites. He said the content started to rank, so he locked out the hacker and replaced the hacker's affiliate links with his own. He talked about this on Twitter[1] saying that ultimately "It wasn't that valuable, but the it's the thought that counts." Here is the tweet: Someone once hacked a site of mine, and it started getting traffic...
