Daily Search Forum Recap: November 7, 2019

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 about it and the Local RankFlux tracker is showing changes as well.
  • Google State Specific Knowledge Panel For Holidays[3]
    Valentin Pletzer spotted 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] Google doesn’t show you a featured snippet anymore, it shows you an answer based in the state you are in.
  • Google My Business Limits Businesses To 20 Service Areas[4]
    Google announced it is now limiting the number of service areas a business can list to no more than 20. Google wrote in the Google Ads Help page “service area businesses are now limited to having a maximum of 20 service areas per business.”
  • Google Featured Snippets Are Impacted By Algorithmic Updates[5]
    Dr. Pete, Pete Meyers, from Moz, posted on Twitter “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.
  • Google Merchant Center Gets Multi-Country Feed Support & Redesign[6]
    Google has added some new features to the Google Merchant Center. First Google added multi-country feeds, which allow you to target multiple countries that share the same language by using a single feed in that language. Google also redesigned the interface with clearer workflows, simpler navigation, and more program insights.
  • GoogleBot Cookies[7]
    Here are the cookies being served during lunch at the Google Webmaster Conference from Monday. Dennis Goedegebuure shared this photo on Twitter of it. I have some video of it in my video below as we
