Daily Search Forum Recap: June 20, 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 added clearer documentation on product rich results for product variants. Google said changing your logo on your site for a theme change likely won’t hurt your SEO. Google Local Service Ads now requires five reviews, up from one review. Google said web sites that are good are also good for SEO. We posted the Juneteeth and Father’s Day Google Doodles and the last vlog interview with Alcides Aguasvivas.

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Google Local Service Ads Reviews Requirements From One To Five Reviews

    Google has updated the local service ads requirements to require you to have five reviews. This is up from the previous requirement of having to have only one review.

  • Changing Your Logo Hurt Your SEO Or Google Rankings? Probably Not.

    Google’s John Mueller was asked if swapping out your logo on your site for the site’s birthday with a special birthday logo can hurt your SEO. John said on Twitter “I’ve never seen issues around that.” In fact, Google does it all the time on its home page and heck, I swap out the theme on this site for special days as well.

  • Google Clarifies How To Use Product Rich Results On Product Variants Pages

    Google has updated the product rich results support page to add details around how these rich results can be used for product variants where each product variant has a distinct URL.
  • Google: Good Web Sites Are Good For SEO

    Google’s John Mueller stated somewhat of an obvious statement, saying basically that building a good website is often good for SEO. He said on Twitter “A lot of good accessibility best practices are also good SEO best practices, and just generally, making a site better for users often results in indirect, overall positive effects too.”

  • DuckDuckGo On The Decline In 2022

    Looks like DuckDuckGo, the privacy focused search engine, is on the decline. In January 2021 it broke the 100 million searches per day mark but since April 2022 of this year, it has dipped below that mark each month.
  • Vlog #178: Alcides Aguasvivas On Proper Infrastructure For Sites To Perform Well In Search

    In part one, Alcides Aguasvivas is a co-founder of Pix-l Graphx spoke to me about how he started him firm 18 years ago while in college. In part two we spoke about local SEO for small businesses. In part three we talk about site development and the importance of solid site infrastructure.
  • Google Jumpsuit & Dress

    I spotted these folks on Instagram wearing Google uniforms for a reception at the Google office in Brazil. They are jumpsuits for the men and dresses for the women with embroidered logo attached.

  • Google Juneteenth Doodle Replaced Father’s Day Logo

    Today is both Father’s Day and Juneteenth and Google had both logos on its home page for the day. Google first placed the Father’s Day logo up on Google.com early this morning and for some yesterday. Then Google later on today, June 19th, replaced the Father’s Day Doodle with the Juneteenth Doodle.

Most SEOs Believe Google’s November Core & Reviews Updates Will Complete In December

Published

on

Google Robot Waiting By Computer

The Google November 2023 core update and Google November 2023 reviews update are still both rolling out, and we have no estimated time of when they will finish rolling out. Both are well past their estimated two-week rollout period. I ran a poll yesterday asking SEOs when they think it will be done, and most said in December and not in the next few days left of November.

The poll had just under 600 votes in 24-hours and 79% said the update will be completed in December and 21% said in the last days remaining in November. I posted the poll on X – here it is:

Personally, I thought it would be done by now and I still think it will be done in the next day or so – but I am wrong a lot. 🙂

I do hope it is done today so they can roll out the Christmas holiday update (kidding…).

Forum discussion at X.

Update: I’ll have a story tomorrow but at least one of the updates is done in November:

Google Search Console Was Down Today

Published

Google Robot Hurt Tired

Google Search Console seems to be down right now. If you try to access it, you will get a 500 server error. I suspect Search Console will be back up shortly but right now, if it is down for you, you are not alone.

Update: At 8:52 am ET Google Search Console is back, the tool was offline for about 50 minutes.

Google’s Daniel Waisberg is 100% aware of the issue. He responded to some posts about the issue, saying, “we’re working on it.” John Mueller from Google is also reposting Daniel’s posts on X.

Here is what it looked like when you tried to access it while it was down:

Gsc 500 Error Down

Search Console went down at about 8 am ET and returned at 8:52 am ET.

Here are the posts on X from Daniel Waisberg of Google on this issue:

Who knows, maybe we will have a new Search Console feature when it returns?

Here are some of the complaints:

Update: At 8:52 am ET Google Search Console is back, the tool was offline for about 50 minutes.

Google Testing New Flight Prices Rich Result?

Published

on

Woman Booking Flight Airport Google Logo

Google may be testing a new type of rich result for flight prices. This test shows a section under the flight search snippet that contains the dates, trip details and price.

This was spotted by Antoine Eripret who was able to trigger this numerous times, over numerous days, while in Spain. Here is his screenshot he posted on X:

Google Flight Prices Rich Result Test

He also posted this video of this in action for me:

Google Flight Prices Rich Result Test

Recently Google told us not to put flight prices in titles because those prices change too quickly. Maybe Google is testing updating those prices in more real time through the use of structured data and is thus more confident to show them as rich results and not title elements?

I don’t think Google officially supports flight schema but maybe they will soon?

Forum discussion at X.
