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.


Car dealerships can list their car inventory in the Google local results with cars for sale on Google Business profiles. Microsoft Bing released a new plugin for WordPress to easily allow you to add IndexNow to your site. Google is testing a new look for visual stories and also for trending searches in google Discover. Also, Google’s people also ask is testing a “read full answer” button.

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • IndexNow WordPress Plugin Released By Microsoft Bing

    Our friends at Microsoft Bing released a holiday gift over Christmas, the IndexNow WordPress plugin. If you run your site on WordPress, you can easily click a few buttons to add IndexNow support to your site and get instant indexing from Bing and Yandex.

  • Google Tests New Visual Stories Designs

    It looks like Google is testing new layouts and formats for the visual stories, formerly AMP stories. Brodie Clark shared some screen shots of the new designs on Twitter.

  • Google People Also Ask With Read Full Answer Button

    Google is testing a new option on some people also ask results, an option to click a button that says “read full answer.” Valentin Pletzer spotted this in the German Google results and I am not able to replicate it on my end, but here are his screenshots, you can click on them to enlarge.

  • Google Discover Tests New Look For Trending Searches

    Google is testing a new look and design for the trending searches you see on the Google home page on mobile and in Google Discover. Here is a screenshot of the slick search phrase in a bubble with the trending icon next to it that Jason Mandragona shared on Twitter.

  • Cars For Sale On Google Business Profiles

    Google is showing more and more cars for sales in the local search results. Saad AK spotted it the other day and shared a video of it in action and Riley Hope shared more details on how dealerships can get their cars in these spots.

  • Google Street View Skier With 360 Cameras

    Here is a photo of a Google Maps street view skier with the 3560 Google Maps cameras strapped onto his back. Bill Hartzer shared this with me on Twitter, there are more photos below.

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 expanding to 70 languages, from just English.
  • 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
  • What’s trending in shopping
  • 3D product support expands with new tools and support for 3D images
  • Buying guides expands
  • Page insights with shopping details, where Google overlays search information in Chrome
  • Personalized results based on brand or department preferences (this is pretty interesting)
  • New shopping filters (dynamic filters) for better refinements of your shopping queries
  • Google Discover with more shopping and style features

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

Here is the 9 minute version:

Here is a summary based on Google’s tweets:
