Google Launches Jewish Shabbat Times Again


Back in 2011 Google first launched prayer time rich results but then a year later Google sunset prayer time results. Then in 2018, Google relaunched native prayer times for Islamic prayer times. Now, in 2022, Google has launched partial prayer times for Judaism – to tell Jews when Shabbat (Shabbos) starts, ends and what the weekly Torah portion is.

If you search for [what time is shabbat] – Google will show you its native built shabbat times widget at the top of the search results for mobile and desktop.

Here is a screenshot:

Note, Google even let’s you define your custom for when Shabbos ends, some old that shabbos ends based on 8.5 degrees below the horizon (sun), 50 minutes after sunset and some hold the Rabbeinu Tam custom – those settings are pretty cool.

I am upset Google does not have generic Jewish prayer times, like it does for Muslims – maybe it will come soon.

This Shabbat times feature launched last week, I believe. Here is where I originally found it:

Google Local SAB Search Ranking Bug Fix Rolling Out

A couple of weeks ago we reported on a possible Google local search ranking update that turned out to not be an update but rather a bug. Well, that bug seems to be fixed or being fixed now and rankings are beginning to return for these local service area businesses.

The bug seemed to start being fixed on Friday, September 23rd, in the afternoon.

Local SEO, Jason Brown wrote in the Local Search Forum “Good news, one of my clients got their rankings back. They are back in the map pack, but not in the same number one spot as before.” He also said later “My other client is back ranking again too. Looks like the fix is being rolled out now.”

He shared this chart showing how all the rankings returned:

Joy Hawkins also posted about it on Twitter:

So hopefully this is now fully resolved – at least this specific bug? It may have been related to the Kansas Google local bug.
