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 probably won’t be launching the page experience update and core web vitals label in search result snippets. Google is testing a new search refinement named people search next. Google is showing “updates from customers” prominently in the Google Maps business listings. Google has a bug with dark mode for some users. It is not a bad thing to have multiple verified profiles in Google Search Console.

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Google Page Experience & Core Web Vitals Label Probably Won’t Go Live

    In November 2020, Google said we may see a label for the Google page experience update show up in the search result snippets. Then in December 2020 we saw actual examples in the raw of Google testing this icon and label in the search results. In January 2021, Google said it might not go live and we didn’t know if it would go live.

  • Google Maps “Updates From Customers” A Nightmare For Business Listings?

    Google has added to Google business profiles listings in the Google Maps interface a section named “updates from customers.” This seems to show some recent reviews from Google Local Guides and this might be a concern for some businesses where Google may highlight a review that might not be what you want your customers to see.

  • Stuck In Google Search Dark Mode Bug

    There seems to be a bug that Google is working on where some searchers are getting left in the dark. Well, stuck in Google’s dark mode or dark theme setting and unable to go back to light theme. Google’s community manager, Minhaj K., said it is investigating the reports of this issue.


  • Multiple Google Search Console Properties For Same Site Is Okay

    It is okay to have multiple properties verified for the same site in Google Search Console. It is not a bad thing, it won’t hurt you, in fact, it might give you more granular data to use if you do. In fact, John Mueller of Google confirmed it is fine to have multiple properties verified for the same site in Google Search Console.

  • Google “People Search Next” Search Refinements

    Google has a new search refinement titled “people search next.” This is in addition to the related searches, the people also ask, the people also search for and the others. Here is a screenshot of this in action, but I found this via Saad AK on Twitter.

  • Polestar At GooglePlex

    Here is a newish Polestar all electric car at the GooglePlex, the Google headquarters in Mountain View, California. It was posted on Instagram where they wrote Google’s Android Automotive OS was spec

Google Says They Have Algorithms To Detect & Demote AI Plagiarized Content

Duy Nguyen from Google’s search quality team said in the Google office hours video that Google has “algorithms to go after” those who post AI plagiarized content, then the algorithms can “demote site scraping content from other sites.”

The question was asked at the 9:19 mark which was “How should content creators respond to sites that use AI to plagiarize the content, modify it, and then outrank them in search results?”

Duy Nguyen said, “Scraping content, even with some modification, is against our spam policy.” Duy added that Google has “many algorithms to go after such behaviors and demote site scraping content from other sites.”

If Google messes up, and “if you come across sites that repeatedly scrape content, that perform well on Search, please feel free to report them to us, with our spam report form so that we can further improve our systems, both in detecting the spam and also ranking overall,” he added.

Here is the video embed:

Later on in the video, at 17:05 mark a similar question was asked and answered by Duy:

Kunal asked why Google is not taking action on copy or spun web stories? Can you check on Discover?

Thank you for the report. We are aware of these attempts and we are looking into them. In general, sites with spammy scraped content violate our spam policy, and our algorithms do a pretty good job of demoting them in search results.
