Published

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.


We saw some tremors, volatility and signals of a Google search ranking update over the Father’s Day and Juneteenth holiday. Google’s John Mueller cut down the number of office hours he is doing monthly. Google posted a cool interactive infographic on Google Search that brings back many SEO memories. Google Ads will fix the performance max comparison report. Google is testing bolding words in the domain name again.

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Google Juneteenth Search Ranking Algorithm Tremors?

    I know we had a long Holiday weekend with both Father’s Day and Juneteenth but there were some tremors of note related to a possible Google search ranking algorithm update over the weekend. It might be just normal holiday weekend chatter but some of the tools are also showing volatility that match the chatter.

  • Google SEO Office Hours Now Down To One Time Per Month

    Google’s John Mueller has been doing Google SEO office hours for what feels like a decade or so. It is when John Mueller would answer questions live from SEOs and then that would be published on YouTube for all to watch later. We would cover a lot of those recordings here and even ask some questions live.

  • Google Interactive Search History Infographic Brings Back Many SEO Memories

    Last week, Google tweeted about its interactive infographic on how Google Search has changed since it launched in 1998. For me, this infographic triggered a lot of SEO memories.

  • Google Ads To Fix Performance Max Product Listing Tab Comparison Report Bug

    Google Ads has a ton of reporting tools in the Ads console but some don’t fully work as expected. For example, the date comparison in the Performance Max Product Listing tab but doesn’t actually allow us to compare the data. It does give you a way to compare date ranges but without reporting on any of it.

  • Google Tests Bolding Domains In Search Results Again

    Google is again testing bolding the domain name or portion of the domain name in the search results again. Google has tested this numerous times over the years, I believe the last time we covered it was 2018 but Google has tested it before and after that.

  • Monk GooglePlex Meditation

    Here is a photo of Phra Sanitwong Charoenrattawong, I think a monk, on Instagram, meditating outside of the Google office, the GooglePlex. He does this at other popular locations on his Instagram fee

New Google Rich Results Guidelines Prevent Prohibited, Regulated Or Harmful Products

New Google Rich Results Guidelines Prevent Prohibited, Regulated Or Harmful Products

Google Search has added new content guidelines to the rich results help document. These new guidelines directly disallow you to markup product or content that are widely prohibited or regulated, or that can facilitate serious harm to self or others. Google said it will simply not show rich results on such products.

Product examples include firearms & weapons, recreational drugs, tobacco, vaping products, gambling-related products and other products that can pose acute threats of physical harm.

The new guidelines were posted over here and read:

Don’t mark up content that promotes widely prohibited or regulated goods, services, or information that may facilitate serious and/or immediate or long term harm to self or others. This includes content related to firearms & weapons, recreational drugs, tobacco & vaping products and gambling-related products.

This new policy is effective already and I assume you will soon, if not already, not see rich results in Google Search for these types of products. This includes Google not showing star ratings, prices, or availability information and so on.

Google told me “this policy change will align the rich snippets feature with other Search surfaces that display product information from merchants, to help provide consistency and clarity.”

Google will not issue manual actions in Google Search Console for violation of this guidelines, Google will simply will just not show the rich results in Google Search.

Here is a screenshot from Glenn Gabe of it already going missing for sites:
