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 confirmed that its backlogged with manual actions that need to be processed. Google’s page experience update for desktop is coming next month. Google said links need to be indexed to be counted and even some pages that are indexed don’t count. Google Ads launched a new disapproved ads auditor tool. Google Ads local campaigns do not support ad scheduling. Google is testing web stories for NFL games in search and more.

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Google: Manual Actions Backlogged & Delayed Responses

    Danny Sullivan of Google confirmed on Twitter that there is or was a backlog of manual actions issued by Google. Google has been slow and delayed in responding to those manual actions but is working through the backlog.

  • Google Ads Disapproved Ads Auditor

    Google Ads has a new scaled ad auditing tool set of code you can download at GitHub and use in your own software systems for managing your ads. The Disapproved Ads Auditor tool helps you both flag and automatically delete ads that violating Google Ads policies on your accounts.
  • Google Tests Web Stories For NFL Games (In Place Of YouTube Videos)

    Google is testing displaying web stories in place of YouTube videos for searches on NFL games. Personally, I still see the YouTube videos but some folks, like NFL enthusiast Mordy Oberstein, is seeing Web Stories instead of YouTube videos.

  • Google Logo On Barbell Weight Plates

    We’ve seen Google label dumbbells in their gyms with the Google logo, but here is a photo (taken from a video) of the Google logo on the weight plates of the barbells. This was shared on Instagram, h

Everything Google Announced At Search On 2022

We had another Google Search On event yesterday and in case you missed it or you simply do not want to read through a lot of fluff, here is the short version. Note, I am pretty sure we covered tests of all of these announcements in the past at this site, so everything should look familiar.

Again, this is the quick format version, since I did a longer version at Search Engine Land.

  • Multisearch near me launching finally for English/US
  • Google Lens translate overlay much cleaner now
  • Google iOS app adds shortcuts
  • Google Search autocomplete with tappable query builder and richer results
  • Google Search adds filters to the search tools bar
  • New ways to explore Google Maps on your phone
  • More visual knowledge panels
  • Explore as you scroll to roll out
  • The discussions and forums feature also
  • Machine translated local and international news
  • About this result displays personalization for search results (mostly shopping)
  • Search with the word “shop” where Google will refine the query to be more shopping focused
  • Shop the look in Google Search

Here is the replay of the event if you want to watch it or read about it here.
