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.


Welcome back and today we covered a change to the Search Console product rich results reporting error handling. Google also said site quality again is site level and even a site with different language sections can impact each other. Google said sites where the IP address is duplicating your domain is not going to hurt you. Google’s coverage report won’t gain support for the unavailable after meta tag. Google’s John Mueller was helping SEOs during New Years eve and day again. I posted the most cited people in the search industry on this site. I posted my Friday recap video and also a vlog with Colt Sliva.

Google Still Says Do Not Use Commas, Brackets Or Other Non Standard URL Encoding For Faceted Navigation


Google’s John Mueller confirmed that the search company’s 2014 guidance with faceted navigation remains true today – do not use non-standard URL encoding. That means do not use commas, brackets or other non-standard URL encoding in your URL structure.

Instead, use ampersands, equal signs, hyphens or other supported and standard URL encoded URLs for your fascinated navigation. This guidance is listed in Google’s blog post from 2014, here is a screenshot:

Personally, I am not a fan of this, it seems to really clutter up the map interface a lot to me…

Allie added “Another reason to get keywords in your reviews.”

Do you like it? Even if you don’t and Google launches this, you better have some really nice short review snippets that Google can select.
