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 is going to be testing new AR prototypes, like eyewear, perhaps similar to the old Google Glass. Google is testing new interactive knowledge panel cards, it is cool. Google Search Console now supports DNS verification using CNAMEs. Google product results are testing customer favorites, mentions of, and more attributes.

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Google Tests New AR Prototypes – Watch Out Google Glass

    Google announced it will begin testing new AR, augmented reality, experiences in the public with a limited number of Googlers and trusted testers. These include in-lens displays, microphones, and cameras, that Google will start to test next month in the real world.
  • Google Now Test Interactive Card Knowledge Box Layout

    The other day we covered a knowledge box card layout, but now Google is testing a more interactive version of this card layout. When you click on the cards they expand and show more details.

  • Limited Google Search Bug Showing Only One Result To Some Users

    Google has this weird Google Search rendering bug where it is showing only one search result to some users. This seems like a super limited bug, impacting a limited number of users. But for Google, even one percent of searchers are a lot of searches. Google said they will investigate these reports.

  • Google Product Results Tests Customer Favorites, Most Mentions Of & More Labels

    Google is doing a lot of product result testing, as you’d expect. Here are some new features we spotted Google testing for products in the search results. They include showing customer favorites, most mentions of, and more label attributes on the products.

  • New Verification Of Google Search Console Via DNS CNAME

    Google announced this morning that they have added a new way to verify your domain name and properties in Google Search Console. You can now do so through or via DNS CNAME.

  • Massive Google Key

    As you know, Google is opening the new Google Europaallee campus in Zurich, Switzerland and I guess they had a special event the other day. Here is a photo of a massive Google key at the opening event

Google Popular Destinations Overlays Google Travel Details



Google Popular Destinations Overlays Google Travel Details

Google seems to be testing overlaying on top of the web search results the popular destinations feature and details you’d normally get in Google Travel. Previously, Google would show you a snippet and when you clicked in for more, it would take you to Google Travel.

Khushal Bherwani shared a video of this on Twitter of Google testing an overlay, I currently still do not see the overlay but rather am taken into Google Travel’s site. Here is his tweet:

Google has been testing overlays a lot in web search on mobile. I guess Google rather keep people in search over those verticals?
