Daily Search Forum Recap: December 13, 2022

Published

on

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.


No, there is no helpful content score from Google Search. Google is testing the featured snippets that are not in position zero (one). A study says that reviews from Google Local Guides stay up longer than other reviews. Google says your content does not need to be niche to rank well. Microsoft Advertising will require UK advertisers in the financial sector to be verified.

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Google: There Is No Helpful Content Score Or Threshold

    Google’s John Mueller said there is no score or threshold for the Google helpful content update. He said on Mastodon “There is no “HCS score” or threshold at which HCS [helpful content score] would switch from unhelpful to helpful for SEO.
  • Google Tests Featured Snippets Not In Position Zero, Again

    Google is once again testing showing the featured snippet, aka position zero, not in the first or position zero slot but rather under position one or even further down the page.
  • Google: Your Content Does Not Need To Be Niche, It Can Be Diverse – Just Write For Your People

    Danny Sullivan, the Google Search Liaison, said on Masoton that your content does not need to be on one topic, one niche topic, for it to rank well. You can write about diverse topics on your site. The main thing, Danny said, was that you should write content however you want for your people and not for search engines.
  • Study: Google Local Guides Reviews Stay At The Top Longer

    Joy Hawkins has published another local SEO case study, this one on whether reviews left by Local Guides do better than any ordinary reviewer on Google. The answer is yes; reviews left by Local Guides seem to do better and last longer than other reviews.
  • UK Financial Services Advertisers Now Needs Verification For Microsoft Advertising

    Microsoft announced that if you do financial service ads in its network, like on Bing Search, in the UK, you will need to be verified in early 2023. “Starting early 2023, we’ll allow only advertisers duly authorized by the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to present regulated financial promotions in the UK,” wrote.

  • R2-D2 At Google Event

    Here is a photo from the Google Dublin office from an event named “Google Unwrapped, Let Your Thursday Roar.” You can see, R2-D2 from Star Wars was in attendance.

Apple Maps Street View Camera Backpack

Here is a photo of some guy walking around Israel with an Apple Maps street view backpack. It was captured by Hillel Fuld the other day and posted on Twitter.

Google has its own street view backpack, which is more impressive to look at.

Google Internal Menu System Tracks Food Preferences Tweets

A Googler shared screenshots of the output from the Google internal menu system where it told her that one day she avoids salades and then she must have had some salads to correct that and the next day it say she enjoys salad. I am just amazed Google tracks the food Googlers eat and offers suggestions.

Here are those tweets embedded:

This is really not a photo of the day but close enough…
