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: Bing Spam Penalties, Google Local Ranking Update, Speed Reports & More[2]This week in search I posted the big monthly Google Webmaster report, so catch up there quickly.

This week in search I posted the big monthly Google Webmaster report, so catch up there quickly. Bing announced a boat load of new search spam penalties that is rolling out. Google may have done a local search algorithm update this week. Google shared some details on what it is working on for health and medical queries. Google has rolled out the speed reports in Search Console, there is no ETA on an API. GoogleBot is...

Earlier this week, I wrote how yet another Googler once again said Google does not use user behavior signals[1] for rankings. But what happens is people don't believe Google and they come up with theories on how Google does use user behavior as a ranking signal no matter how many times Google says no. Martin Splitt from Google was the last Googler to say no, Google doesn't use them for ranking purposes. Here was that tweet: We're not...

We had a slew of tweets triggered by Gary Illyes of Google and then followed up by John Mueller of Google around robots.txt and XML sitemap files ranking in Google. In short, if they rank for normal queries, John Mueller said "that's usually a sign that your site is really bad off and should be improved instead." Let's start with Gary's tweet: Triggered by an internal question: robots.txt from indexing point of view is just a url whose...

Google's John Mueller said you should absolutely not "use robots.txt to block indexing of URLs with parameters." He said if you do that then Google "cannot canonicalize the URLs, and you lose all of the value from links to those pages." Instead use rel-canonicals and link consistently throughout your site. John said this on Twitter[1], here is an embed of the tweet: Don't use robots.txt to block indexing of URLs with parameters. If you do that, we can't...

Google released[1] Google Ads Editor version 1.2 yesterday. This release has a lot of new features including support for new campaign types and updates to multi-account management. Version 1.1[2] was released in July, so it has been a while since Google came out with a new version of Google Ads Editor. Here is a complete list of what is new: Hide empty repeated fields in editing pane Some entities have large numbers of similar fields, but only a few...

SEO was featured on Jeopardy the other day. The statement was "wanna boost traffic to your website? Try SEO, short for this." Marshall Simmonds shared this on Twitter[1]. Google Glass was on Jeopardy[2] in 2013 but I don't know if SEO was on Jeopardy prior to this? This post is part of our daily Search Photo of the Day[3] column, where we find fun and interesting photos related to the search industry and share them with our readers. References^...

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 My Business Local Listing Update This Week[2]For the past couple of days I have been noticing changes to the local pack rankings in Google. The Google My Business local results are changing but the forums are pretty quiet about it. But Austin Holdsworth posted on Twitter...

Dr. Pete, Pete Meyers, from Moz, posted on Twitter[1] "Any algo update that impacts query interpretation or relevance will impact Featured Snippets." This was retweeted by Google's John Mueller, so I guess that is a vote of confidence without passing DA ;-). In all seriousness, we've all seen it, featured snippets are very finicky and change a lot but algorithm updates can cause them as well. Here is the tweet: General FYI -- Any algo update that impacts...

Valentin Pletzer spotted and posted on Twitter[1] that Google doing what I think might be a new knowledge panel, one that replaced a featured snippet. This is for a search on holidays. If you search for [holiday 2019[2]] Google doesn't show you a featured snippet anymore, it shows you an answer based in the state you are in. Here is a screen shot: I see it for New York, because that is where I am. But you might see...
