Daily Search Forum Recap: May 23, 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.


Google is into its grid layout, testing ads in that layout and also testing it on desktop search. Google does not yet have the inclusive markup schema for image skin tones. Google said rich results are not impacting by your server slowing down. Google Search Console seems like it will change “coverage” to pages” in the side bar menu. Plus we have a vlog out with James Pate, a smart SEO at IBM.

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • New Google News Trial Being Tested

    Google is testing a new version of the Google News portal. I am able to replicate it in some browsers, but not all. The message at the top says “you’re using a trail version of Google News.” The news portal looks much more news like and is a bit refreshing from the current version of Google News.


  • Google Search Tests Grid Layout For Ads

    Google is now also testing that grid layout for ads, not just for desktop results. Yes, Google launched on mobile a new visual grid layout. And now Google is testing it as a new ad format and on desktop search, which we covered earlier this morning.
  • Google Search Grid Format Visual Design On Desktop

    It looks like Google is testing the more visual grid format design that was officially launched on mobile, now on desktop Google Search results. This typically comes up for product queries and such and it is now being tested on Google desktop search.

  • Google: Slower Server Response Time Wont Lead To Rich Results Drop

    Google’s John Mueller said that “rich results would not drop due to a slower response from the server.” He said this on Twitter when someone said they “lost 90% of our Recipe Rich Cards” at the same time as a “slower server response time.”

  • Google Search Console To Change Coverage Report To Pages Report?

    Remember the new video page indexing report Google demonstrated at Google I/O? Well, I didn’t pick up on this but Google may be renaming the “coverage” report to “pages” report. If you look at the screenshot Google shared at Google I/O, the coverage report was renamed to “pages.”

  • Google Inclusive Schema For Image Search Monk Skin Tone Scale Not Here Yet

    One of the announcements at Google I/O was a new way to filter image results by skin tones. Part of that announcement, that I embedded in my coverage, was Google saying content creators will be able to use “inclusive schema to label their content with attributes like skin tone, hair color and hair texture.”
  • Vlog #174: James Pate On SEO At IBM & Using Airtable For Managing Enterprise SEO Data



    James Pate is the Technical SEO Manager at IBM, IBM has a whole group of respected and well known SEOs. I’ve spoken with Patrick Stox while he was at IBM, I also spoke with Tanu Javeri at IBM’s NYC offices a while back. So this is the third IBM SEO I’ve interviewed…


  • Two Disco Balls At The Google Dublin Office

    We have seen some of the Google offices had disco balls hanging from the ceiling but here are two disco balls on the floor of the Google Dublin office. I guess they had some wild post-COVID party at t

Happy Fourth of July - Google Doodle

Wishing you all a happy Happy Fourth of July, as you can see, this site is all dressed up for the day (on desktop) and Google has their special animated Doodle. I’d embed the Bing theme but I was once threatened with a lawsuit for doing that (not by Microsoft but one of those image legal companies).

I have a ton to post but I’ll hold it all for tomorrow and let you all rest.

Have a wonderful July 4th and speak to you all tomorrow, July 5th.

Forum discussion at Twitter.
