Daily Search Forum Recap: June 15, 2022

Published

on

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 Search Console updated its reports to just show valid or invalid errors, to make things easier – this is just a reporting change. Google’s product reviews update is still English only, it has not rolled out more globally. Google also posted a short video on if algorithm updates are global. Google continues to test a scrollable side panel. Google turned on messaging in local panels for some business profiles automatically. Google’s things to know box is showing for 1% of queries says RankRanger.

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Google Search Console Reports Now Show Invalid Or Valid Classifications

    Google has just announced that it updated its reports in Search Console to show if an error is invalid or valid in terms of it being an issue for Google to process for indexing and ranking. This is being done to better communicate if an error is causing an issue with appearing in Google Search or not.
  • Google Product Reviews Update Still English Only, For Now…

    Google has pushed out three Product Reviews Updates, the latest being in March 2022. There was some confusion on if that March Product Reviews Update was more global in nature or just was focused on English language content. I wrote it was English only and I was right (this time).
  • Google Search Expands Scrollable Right Panel

    On April 1st we caught Google testing a scrollable right side panel for related images. Well, it seems like that test was not just for images but also for other blocks like knowledge panels, featured snippets and other image features.


  • Report: Google Things To Know In ~1% Of All Queries

    The folks over at RankRanger have begun to track how often the Things To Know box show up in the Google Search results. It turns out, based on their data, it shows up for almost one-percent of all queries the toolset tracks.

  • Is Google Turning On Messaging Automatically For Some Business Profiles?

    There is a complaint in the Local Search Forums from a local SEO saying that Google has emailed businesses of the local SEO with a message that they automatically turned on messaging on their business profile in Google Maps and Google Search.

  • Video: Does Google Search Rollout Algorithm Updates Globally

    You probably all know the answer to this question, since we covered this countless times. But John Mueller of Google made a super short official Google from Google saying some search algorithm updates roll out globally and some are regional or language specific at first.


  • Rooftop Party & Live Band At Google Chicago

    Here are some photos I found on Instagram from the Google Chicago office showing they had some sort of party with a live band on the roof top of the Google Chicago office building.

Google Says Google Search Handles marquee Tags Appropriately

Published

Google Marquee Lights

Gary Illyes, from the Google Search Relations team, said on LinkedIn that Google Search handles the marquee HTML tag “appropriately.” What does it mean by appropriately? That is Gary for you.

I assume it means Google can read the text within the marquee HTML tag.

The marquee HTML element is used to insert a scrolling area of text. You can control what happens when the text reaches the edges of its content area using its attributes.

Google even has this long standing marquee tag new easter egg that looks like this:

Here are some funny comments in the LinkedIn thread:

Again, Gary wrote, “Please note that, after digging through some ancient code, I can confidently confirm Google handles marquee tags appropriately. You’re welcome, internet.”

Google Search Result Snippet Scrollable On Some Browsers

Published

Google Mobile device

Did you know that in some browsers, specifically on Android on Chrome and maybe others, that you can scroll to see more of a longer and truncated snippet in the Google Search results? I didn’t but Kamran Badal spotted this the other day and Glenn Gabe was able to replicate it.

I am not sure if you would care but I found it super interesting that you can kind of scroll to see more of a snippet in the mobile Google Search results. I cannot replicate this on iOS devices but this can be replicated on Android devices.

Kamran Badal wrote on Twitter, “Fun fact, kind of? The descriptions in #Google search results mobile layout are scrollable.”

Here is his screenshots showing this in action:

Glenn Gabe also replicated it himself:

How interesting.

Again, not sure any of you should care about this, but I found it interesting because it seems like some sort of hack or bug that should not work in Google Search.

A new Twitter poll shows that most SEOs do not yet feel comfortable recommending using AI to write client content. The poll asked, “Would you recommend using an AI writer to your clients?” Most SEOs said no.

Mordy Oberstein posted this poll on Twitter and there were over 600 votes. About 66% said no, they would not recommend an AI writer to their clients, the rest said yes, they would recommend an AI writer.

Here is the poll:

Do you think this poll is representative of the SEO industry?
