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 are seeing big swings in the Google Search results, maybe a continuation of the unconfirmed Juneteenth Google search ranking update? Google updated its help documentation for HTTP status codes, Googlebot and job postings. Google Business Profiles now supports a new attribute for LGBTQ+ owned businesses. Google is testing rounded favicons in the search results. Microsoft Bing is testing the Secure and HTTPS labels in its search results.

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Unconfirmed Google Search Ranking Update Spiking June 23rd

    We have been watching what I named the Google Juneteenth Search Ranking Algorithm tremors since the weekend and it is now spiking even more this morning. Seems like some sites hit by the May 2022 core update are seeing some big recoveries, many are not, and sites in general are reporting on big swings in the Google search results.

  • Updates To Google HTTP Status Codes, Googlebot & Job Posting Help Docs

    Google has made changes to a few of its Google search help documentation over the past couple of days. The documents updated include HTTP status codes, the Googlebot and job posting help documentation.

  • Google Adds LGBTQ+ Owned Business Attribute For Business Profiles

    Google has added yet another business attribute for Google Business Profiles – LGBTQ+ owned businesses. This is a new label that can be added to your business in Google Maps and Google Search “making it easier for customers to find and support them,” Google said.
  • Bing Tests Secure & HTTPS Label On Search Result Snippets

    Microsoft Bing is once again testing security labels on the search result snippets. Here is Bing testing adding a “secure” and “HTTPS” label on some search results based on my tests in multiple browser types.
  • Google Tests Rounded Favicons In Mobile Search Results

    Google is testing a rounded corner design for the favicons displayed in the mobile search results on snippets. Brodie Clark shared some examples on Twitter saying “On the back of recent testing of favicon sizing on mobile, a rounded version with a grey background has appeared. Similar to previous tests, the brand name/domain is also repeated at the top.”

  • Tombstone For Internet Explorer

    On August 16, 1995, 26 years ago, Microsoft launched its browser named Internet Explorer. It was on Wednesday, June 15, 2022 that Microsoft officially discontinued Internet Explorer. So one person in

Google Product Grid Results Are Organic

Google Search Results Rolls Out Much More Visual Design

We’ve been seeing a lot of grid-like formats with products and shopping results. We know some are ads and some are organic. John Mueller of Google just added official Google representative confirmation that many of these are organic – if you don’t trust that there is no ad label on them as evidence enough.

The other day, Dan Shure posted on Twitter this screenshot (click it to enlarge) of this grid product format and said “This is quite the search result page – there are up to SIXTEEN products below a SINGLE organic listing (in addition to the image carousels) and desktop is infinite scroll.”

click for full size

Well, yea, these are organic. John responded on Twitter saying “They’re organic results too. This is one of the reasons it’s good to dig into our ecommerce site guidance if you sell products.”

Honestly, like I said before, I am not a huge fan of these grid formatted results for products. At least, they should be in some “click to expand” feature so you can see more.
