Google Asking Searchers Do You Own This Product Before Reviewing


Google is now asking searchers if they own the product before they rate it. Google asks under the rate and review box “do you own this product” and “help others by sharing your experience.”

Here is a screenshot of this from Valentin Pletzer on Twitter:

This is very similar to how Google asks have you made an online purchase from before leaving a review. Overall the rate and review box in Google Search is from 2017 but since 2020 Google has been asking qualifier questions before searchers drop reviews.

Google Updates Video Best Practices For Thumbnail Transparency

Google Updates Video Best Practices For Thumbnail Transparency

Google has added one line to its video best practices document explaining that you should have at least 80% of your thumbnail pixels have little or no transparency to enable video indexing.

The new line was added over here and says “Transparency: At least 80% of the thumbnail’s pixels must have an alpha (transparency) value greater than 250.”

This is specifically under the “ensure your videos can be indexed” section of the document.

So if you want those videos or video thumbnails indexed, make sure they are not that transparent.
