Daily Search Forum Recap: May 2, 2022



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 may have done another search algorithm update around May 1st, but the prior week was pretty volatile anyway. Google says you can use hashtags in your meta descriptions if you want. Google Discover added a long tap to preview a story. Google Search added tips to dictionary results to give you similar sounding words. Google has changed the format for the SEO office hours – which is a bit concerning to me. I also released a vlog today with a former special ops and now PPC consultant, Lior Krolewicz.

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

    • Possible Google Search Algorithm Update May 1st With Rumbles All Week

      For the past week, I have been seeing a different pattern with a possible Google search ranking algorithm update. The forums and SEO discussion around a possible Google update was brewing a good part of last week but the automated tracking tools, most of them, didn’t really pick up signs of a Google update.

    • Google Discover Long Tap To Preview Stories For iOS Chrome

      Google has added long tap to preview for Google Discover within iOS for Chrome according to Glenn Gabe. Glenn Gabe posted about this on Twitter and said “Google just launched “long tap to preview” functionality in Discover in Chrome on iOS. Long tap the story & you see a preview of the article, you can open in a new tab, incognito, or add to your reading list.”

    • Google Search Dictionary Has A Tip For Similar-Sounding Words

      Google has been offering dictionary search results over a dozen years and the search company continues to make tweaks to that feature. Google now will show a “tip” section on some terms that communicate “similar-sounding words” to the word you searched for.

Flash Dressed Crocodile On John Mueller Desk

John Mueller posted this photo on Twitter saying he found this Flash dressed crocodile toy by his desk when he was in the office the other day.

I am not sure if there is an inside joke here, hence the joke being inside… But is funny either way.
