Google AdSense Related Search Experiments Resumed


Google has resumed the AdSense related search Custom search style experiments after pausing it back 8-months ago in May 2021. Google said “we’d like to inform you that as of January 6, 2022, we’ve re-enabled your ability to create Related search Custom search style experiments in your AdSense account.”

The pause originally was suppose to be for a couple of months, from May through July 2021. But I guess it carried on longer. Google wrote then “beginning May 10, 2021, you will not be able to create new experiments for your Related search styles in your AdSense account. Your existing Related search experiments that are currently in progress will also stop on May 10, 2021. Please note that this change does not prevent you from creating experiments for other elements of your styles (e.g., search ads, shopping ads).”

You can access this by clicking into Optimization and then Experiments and try to make a Custom search style, you may run into an issue soon.

Google Still Says Do Not Use Commas, Brackets Or Other Non Standard URL Encoding For Faceted Navigation


Google’s John Mueller confirmed that the search company’s 2014 guidance with faceted navigation remains true today – do not use non-standard URL encoding. That means do not use commas, brackets or other non-standard URL encoding in your URL structure.

Instead, use ampersands, equal signs, hyphens or other supported and standard URL encoded URLs for your fascinated navigation. This guidance is listed in Google’s blog post from 2014, here is a screenshot:

John said on Twitter it is “still a bad idea” to use non-standard URL encoding for this purpose:

I still see many sites using these methods – I wonder why…

Google Maps Pins Testing Showing Review Snippets


Google Maps, the map interface, is testing displaying review snippets, short selected reviews, directly under the name of the business or organization in the map interface under the pin. This was spotted by Allie Margeson who said on Twitter “seeing review snippets get some prominence directly on the map and I like it!”

Here is her screenshot:

Personally, I am not a fan of this, it seems to really clutter up the map interface a lot to me…

Allie added “Another reason to get keywords in your reviews.”

Do you like it? Even if you don’t and Google launches this, you better have some really nice short review snippets that Google can select.
