Here is a recap of what happened in the search forums today, through the eyes of the Search Engine Roundtable and other search forums on the web.


We got a lot of local SEO topics for you today starting with Google adding support for a new recycling attribute for some local businesses. Google updated the help documents to include how adding in-store products can improve your local visibility. Google Business Profiles review tool now works for over 10 accounts. Google My Business app is going away, Google sent out an email notice. Google News is showing a section named “see similar headlines.” How is that for your local search fix?

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

    Google News has a new (I think new) section for some news queries that says “see similar headlines from.” This section is often at the bottom of the news results and it shows a carousel of news publications with their logo and name for you to scroll through and click on to get more news on that specific topic from that specific publication.

Google Product Review Updates Still Get Periodic Updates

Google Product Review Updates Still Get Periodic Updates

Just a reminder, since I am seeing this question come up often. The Google product reviews update is updated periodically, just like with core updates. Google will run them every now and then as it sees fit, so far, Google confirmed five different product review updates.

Danny Sullivan of Google said this again last week on Twitter saying “It’s still a periodic refresh situation.” He referenced his old tweet that said “At the moment, there’s a periodic refresh. Unlike with core updates, we might not always post when a refresh happens given the more limited nature of content involved here. So overall, sites should consider the advice & keep working to it (true of core updates as well!).”

As you can see, Google might not confirm all runs of the product review update.

Here are the dates for the five previous Product Reviews Updates, keep in mind, number five is still rolling out.

Forum discussion at Twitter.

Note: This was pre-written and scheduled to be posted today, I am currently offline for Rosh Hashanah.
