Daily Search Forum Recap: March 4, 2022

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.


The Google page experience update for desktop is now fully live but it didn’t seem to impact rankings, as expected. Google said it has ways to verify that the Google Shopping merchant experience scorecard metrics are legit and if they are faked, those merchants will be penalized. Google temporarily paused as from serving in Russia. Google may one day crawl from outside of the US, maybe. Google does not have a demo account for Search Console. Plus, I posted the weekly video recap.

Google Updates Video Best Practices For Thumbnail Transparency

Google Updates Video Best Practices For Thumbnail Transparency

Google has added one line to its video best practices document explaining that you should have at least 80% of your thumbnail pixels have little or no transparency to enable video indexing.

The new line was added over here and says “Transparency: At least 80% of the thumbnail’s pixels must have an alpha (transparency) value greater than 250.”

This is specifically under the “ensure your videos can be indexed” section of the document.

So if you want those videos or video thumbnails indexed, make sure they are not that transparent.
