Daily Search Forum Recap: September 19, 2022

Published

on

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.


Some are asking if the Google September core update is rolling out more slowly in other countries. Google’s Danny Sullivan reaffirmed that Google now tries to not overlap search algorithm updates. Google will update the new HTTPS report in Search Console to make some errors less confusing and scary. Google is testing double people also ask results. Google Ads is rolling out the self-upgrade tool for local campaigns to Performance Max.

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Google September Core Update Slower To Roll Out In Some Countries?

    Some folks in the SEO community have been asking if the last core update, the September 2022 core update, has been slower to roll out in some specific countries than in other countries. John Mueller of Google replied with his “it depends” response.

  • Google Tries Hard To Not Overlap Different Search Ranking Algorithm Updates

    A lot of folks were thinking that Google in order to bolster the helpful content update rolled out a core update right after the helpful content update was done. As we covered before, that is not the case. It was just that Google had a core update ready to go and now that Google tries not to overlap updates while other updates are rolling out, it waited to push that forward after the helpful content update was done.
  • Confusion: Google Search Console’s HTTPS Is Invalid And Might Prevent Indexing

    Last week, Google rolled out a new Search Console report for HTTPS, and with that came a lot of confusion around a specific error. The error was “HTTPS is invalid and might prevent it from being indexed.” This shows in the URL inspection tool, which was part of this upgrade.

  • Google Ads Self-Upgrade Tool Now Rolling Out For Local Campaigns To Performance Max

    Google announced on Friday that it has begun rolling out the self-upgrade tool for Local campaigns to Performance Max. We knew this was coming, as we reported last August and now the tool has begun to roll out to help you along with the upgrade process.

  • Google Tests Two People Also Ask Results In One Question

    Google is testing showing two people also ask featured snippets in a single question expansion. This acts similar to the multifaceted featured snippets and the new featured snippet design we saw earlier but now within the people also ask box.
  • Vlog #189: Christine Zirnheld, aka Shep On Google Ads Performance Max Campaigns



    In part one, we learned more about Christine Zirnheld, aka Shep, the Digital Marketing Manager at Cypress North and a co-host on Marketing O’Clock. We also spoke about her being a PPC hypocrite specific with broad match and its powers, in some cases…


  • Balance Beam At Google Office

    Here is a photo from the Google office in Zurich of a balance beam. Yea, they have a balance beam available for workers to make sure they are truly balanced. Work life balance – etc.

Google Says Google Search Handles marquee Tags Appropriately

Published

Google Marquee Lights

Gary Illyes, from the Google Search Relations team, said on LinkedIn that Google Search handles the marquee HTML tag “appropriately.” What does it mean by appropriately? That is Gary for you.

I assume it means Google can read the text within the marquee HTML tag.

The marquee HTML element is used to insert a scrolling area of text. You can control what happens when the text reaches the edges of its content area using its attributes.

Google even has this long standing marquee tag new easter egg that looks like this:

Here are some funny comments in the LinkedIn thread:

Again, Gary wrote, “Please note that, after digging through some ancient code, I can confidently confirm Google handles marquee tags appropriately. You’re welcome, internet.”

Google Search Result Snippet Scrollable On Some Browsers

Published

on

Google Mobile device

Did you know that in some browsers, specifically on Android on Chrome and maybe others, that you can scroll to see more of a longer and truncated snippet in the Google Search results? I didn’t but Kamran Badal spotted this the other day and Glenn Gabe was able to replicate it.

I am not sure if you would care but I found it super interesting that you can kind of scroll to see more of a snippet in the mobile Google Search results. I cannot replicate this on iOS devices but this can be replicated on Android devices.

Kamran Badal wrote on Twitter, “Fun fact, kind of? The descriptions in #Google search results mobile layout are scrollable.”

Here is his screenshots showing this in action:

Glenn Gabe also replicated it himself:

How interesting.

Again, not sure any of you should care about this, but I found it interesting because it seems like some sort of hack or bug that should not work in Google Search.
