Google Related Searches With Text Icon Near Graphic Icon

A few years ago, Google began displaying for some related searches (also people also ask flavors) image icons near the query refinement option. Now, it seems Google is showing a text icon for when text is found inside the refinement option, and not just images.

Saad AK noticed this, he shared it with me on Twitter, and I was somewhat able to replicate this. Notice the text icon on the left, near “scuba diving” but then below it are two images and then just simple magnifying glasses.

Saad said “It looks like that it’s indicating that it has text only inside,” and I think I agree. Here are more screen shots he shared:

Google Search Localized Language Carousel, Despite Language Of Query

Praveen Sharma shared a screenshot of a new carousel in the Google mobile search results that shows localized language content based on the location of the searcher, despite the language of the query entered. In this example, Praveen’s query was in English but Google showed him results in Hindi based on his location.

The screenshot Praveen shared on Twitter shows the results and an overlay explaining “Why are some results in Hindi? It looks like this search is coming from Haryana, where Hindi is commonly spoken.”

How cool is that?

Here are more screenshots from Praveen:

Downgrading to AdWords Editor version 1.7 won’t help, Google said “changing versions won’t help in this case.”

Google Shopping Ads With Negative Prices

Zac Stafford posted a screenshot on Twitter of his client’s ads showing negative prices in the Google Search shopping ad results. He said Google auto generated promotions using old codes with discounts greater than the product value.

You can see here, that the Jellycat pacifier normally costs $20 but with a code, you will be paid $27.95 to buy this. Here is the screenshot:

Zac said his client was very unhappy and disappointed with this outcome.

The best part, it seems like Google did this automatically using the Google Ads machine learning stuff. Here is a screenshot from Zac showing “modified by Google.”
