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 seems to now be offering SEO certification, something the company said it won’t be doing in the future. Google search is testing infinite or continuous scroll on desktop search again. Microsoft Advertising releases a new certification program and learning lab. Google Ads rolled out a new create ad user interface – the changes are subtle but roomy. Bing posted SEO advice on how to deal with subscription based content and paywalled content.

Google Business Profiles Showing Review Time For Some Edits
Google may now show you the time it takes to review a requested edit in Google Business Profiles. So if you edit, let’s say, your business category, Google may show you that this type of edit takes about 10 minutes to be reviewed by someone at Google.

Here is that screenshot:
I have never seen this before and boy does this put some pressure on Google to get edits done fast.
I do wonder if this notice about how long the edit might take will last…
