Daily Search Forum Recap: June 9, 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.


The Google May 2022 broad core update is officially done rolling out, I posted a large recap of this update, which I think is one of the biggest core updates we’ve seen in a while. Google Ads API version 11 is now available. Google Ads is expanding the verification program for financial services and product ads. Google said if you serve two or more HTTP result codes, it will pick the first one. Google does not have a way for non US publishers to properly block US users without it being cloaking.

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Google May 2022 Core Update Done Rolling Out On Day 15

    Google has announced this morning at 3:44am ET that the May 2022 broad core update is now done rolling out. Google said “The May 2022 core update rollout is now complete.” This comes a day after noticing a lot of volatility, so maybe today we will see much less volatility and things to start calming down.
  • Google Expands Verification Program For Financial Services Ads

    Last year, Google began tightening controls around financial products and service ads in the UK. Well, now Google is expanding those policies to more regions starting with Australia, Singapore and Taiwan.
  • Currently, EU Publishers Can’t Block US Users Without Blocking Google

    There is currently no safe mechanism for European publishers, or any publishers outside of the US, to block US based users and also not block Googlebot or Google from your site. Google crawls from the US and if you block US users, you would also have to block Googlebot to not implement cloaking which is against Google’s webmaster guidelines.
  • Google Picks First HTTP Result Codes When More Than One Is Provided

    Google’s John Mueller was asked at the 1:20 mark in Friday’s Google hangout about serving two or more HTTP result status codes. If you serve two more more, which does Google Search decide to use? The answer is generally the first, the first HTTP result code would be used.

  • Google Ads API Version 11 Now Available

    Google announced that version 11 of the Google Ads API is now available. Version 10.1 was released on April 27, 2022 and version 10.0 was released on February 9, 2022. And Google has sunset the AdWords API on April 27th which will completely stop working at the end of July.

  • Google Rainbow Wig Summit

    Here is a recent photo from the Google New York City office where some Googlers had a rainbow wig “summit.” That is a very colorful photo and it looks like they are having fun.

Google Says Google Search Handles marquee Tags Appropriately

Published

on

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

on

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.

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?
