Daily Search Forum Recap: June 1, 2020

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 Can Use Historic Data For Ranking Your Site In Search[2]
    John Mueller of Google confirmed on Friday’s webmaster hangout video that Google does and can use historic or legacy data about your web site for ranking purposes. He gave a few examples of how Google uses it; your links over time, the adult SafeSearch filter and some of Google’s quality algorithms.
  • Bing Won’t Rule Out Meta Keywords Tag Forever[3]
    In 2011, Bing said they do use the meta keywords tag. In 2014, Bing said the meta keywords tag was “dead in terms of SEO value.” Now, Bing won’t say if it is being used or not being used now or in the future.

John was asked “how reliable is it” when setting “crawl no urls” of a certain type of URL pattern. John said “it’s not a replacement for the robots.txt — if you need to be sure that something’s not crawled, then block it properly.”
  • Google Tests Blue Snippet Headers[7]
    It looks like Google is testing blue snippet headers in the mobile results. I believe this is an ongoing limited test but I figured I’d share it. Here are screen shots from Valentin Pletzer on Twitter of this in action.
  • John Mueller’s COVID Haircut[8]
    Looks like John Mueller of Google got a bit of a haircut while in stay-at-home mode. You can see from his video this past Friday that he shaved his head. I don’t see that he mentioned exactly why bu
