Google Discover Stories For Destination Queries By TikTok, Facebook & YouTube

Google is testing a new format for destination queries that not only shows things to do but now showed this story format “Discover” section. Google embeds stories from TikTok, YouTube, Facebook, and possibly other platforms for this section.

I personally cannot replicate this, but Saas AK shared a video of this in action on Twitter – here is a screenshot followed by his videos:

I am not too sure how much I like this feature but since younger people prefer TikTok and Instagram over Google, maybe it makes sense?

Google Showing Fewer Review Rich Results In Shopping Category

Google Showing Fewer Review Rich Results In Shopping Category

Google may be showing fewer reviews in the search result snippets, fewer review rich results, specifically when you filter by the shopping vertical. This seemed to happen right when Google released the Google Product Reviews update, there was a five percentage point drop in the number of review snippets for this category.

Aleyda Solis noticed this and posted on Twitter that when you filter the Semrush Sensor chart in the Shopping category and then dig into review stars, you will see the drop from about 69% of results having review stars to only 62%. Here is the chart:

Here is Aleyda’s tweet:

Super interesting and yes, the product reviews update can result in rich results not showing up, so it does make sense that this directly impacted that category. But I am surprised the results that replaced those sites do not have review rich results to replace them. Something seems out of whack.

The other tools do not let you filter by vertical and SERP feature. Did you notice this?
