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 does the data processing for the Google core update prior to when it launches, which is why it is so hard to recover between core updates. Apple may announce its own search engine next week at its developer conference. Google AdWords API error rates will begin tomorrow through a month or so. Google featured snippets tests leading questions. Does Google allow any level of plagiarism? Seems like a weird question to me…
Search Engine Roundtable Stories:
- Google Core Updates Uses Data Before Launch But May Update Data Between Launches
Google’s John Mueller was asked what are the timeframes for the data used when calculating quality metrics for the Google broad core updates. John said that there is a lot of “work that’s done well in advance” and “usually with data collected until then,” then being just before it rolls out.
- Rumor: Apple To Announce New Search Engine Next Week
Robert Scoble posted a bunch of items around what to expect from the Apple World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) that is happening Monday, June 6th. Robert said a bunch of things but specific to search he said “and a new search engine is coming too.”
- Google Featured Snippet With Question Header
I am honestly not sure if this is new, but I tried to replicate this and it took a few tries on various mobile browsers to trigger it. Google is showing a featured snippet that leads with a question in the header of the snippet.
- Google SEO Question: How Much Plagiarism Percentage-wise Is Allowed?
I spotted a weird question that was asked of Google’s John Mueller around plagiarism. The question was, what percentage level of plagiarism does Google allow so a site can rank in Google. Is it 5%, 10%, etc? The question is weird but I guess there are some myths out there around it being okay to plagiarize content for SEO purposes?
- Google AdWords API Error Rates Begins June 1st
As you know, Google has sunset the AdWords API on April 27th. But Google let it work over the past month or so. Well, starting June 1st, Google will increase the rates of errors you get when trying to use the old AdWords API from 50% error rate on June 1st to 100% error rate on July 31, 2022.

Google Product Grid Results Are Organic
We’ve been seeing a lot of grid-like formats with products and shopping results. We know some are ads and some are organic. John Mueller of Google just added official Google representative confirmation that many of these are organic – if you don’t trust that there is no ad label on them as evidence enough.
The other day, Dan Shure posted on Twitter this screenshot (click it to enlarge) of this grid product format and said “This is quite the search result page – there are up to SIXTEEN products below a SINGLE organic listing (in addition to the image carousels) and desktop is infinite scroll.”
Well, yea, these are organic. John responded on Twitter saying “They’re organic results too. This is one of the reasons it’s good to dig into our ecommerce site guidance if you sell products.”

Honestly, like I said before, I am not a huge fan of these grid formatted results for products. At least, they should be in some “click to expand” feature so you can see more. So show one line of these results with a click to expand. It is just too much in my opinion, even if Google is confident of the intent of the query.
Also, not all of these image snippets need markup to work, although these with the pricing and reviews probably do…
