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.


Google now uses MUM for featured snippets to determine consensus and pull out callouts and reduce false premise queries – this is super interesting and a must-read. Google also expanded the About this result and content advisories features. Google Search Console Discover performance report had a data logging issue on July 26th. Google removed the rich media file best practices because it is not 2005 anymore, the company said. Google added GTIN12 to the supported properties in the product structured data docs. Google is testing search refinements in the desktop autocomplete.

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Google Featured Snippet Callouts, False Premises, MUM & More

    Google has launched some improvements to featured snippets, about this result and the content advisories in Google Search. MUM now works with featured snippets to help Google understand the notion of consensus and then highlight words in the featured snippets, known as callouts.

  • Google Search Console Performance Report For Discover Reporting Issue On July 26

    Google has confirmed it had a reporting issue in the Google Search Console Performance Report for Discover traffic. Google said the issue was on July 26th and may result in a drop in clicks and impressions on or around that date.
  • Google Adds GTIN12 Property To Product Structured Data Support Doc

    Google has the gtin12 property to the Product structured data documentation in its help center. Note, the gtin12 property was always supported but Google just didn’t have it in the documentation until today. Google also clarified that you can use the generic gtin property for all GTINs, but Google said it recommends that you use the most specific one if possible.
  • Google 404s Rich Media File Best Practices Help Document

    Google has deleted and 404ed the Rich media file best practices. Google said removed its “documentation about rich-media files, such as Silverlight and Flash.” Why? This is the best part, Google wrote “turns out it’s not 2005 anymore.”

  • Google Tests Search Refinements In Autocomplete For Desktop

Video: Google's Overlapping Algorithm Updates, Product Reviews Update, Confusing HTTPS Report & Google Ads Serving Bug

In this week’s video, we cover how Google said they try not to overlap search algorithm updates but then announced the rollout of the fifth product reviews update before the core update was done. We also dug into the product reviews update and what we are seeing from it. There is a bug with Google Ads preventing some ads from serving for the past day or more. The other week, Google released a new HTTPS report in Search Console, well, it is causing a lot of confusion. Google’s John Mueller posted what he considers to be a quality issue with a site. Google Search Console’s international targeting report is now really gone. Google said it de-duplicates based on almost duplicates as well. An SEO survey says that SEOs find link acquisition the most challenging part of SEO, and this year. Google is testing highlighting text in the people also ask box. Google is testing placing the image thumbnail in a different location in the top stories carousel. Google is also testing two people also ask results. Bing is testing colored sitelinks box. Google Ads self-upgrade tool is rolling out for local campaigns to performance max campaigns. Also, Monday and Tuesday are a Jewish holiday, Rosh Hashanah, and I will be offline but my site will have scheduled posts – however some folks turn off their site and John Mueller shared tips on how to turn off your site, temporarily, in these cases. Also, I am offline Monday and Tuesday for Rosh Hashanah, happy Jewish new year. And if you want to help sponsor those vlogs, go to patreon.com/barryschwartz.
