Google Says There Is No Snippet Wide Ban Going On


Over the past few months, there have been some SEO folks asking me about Google’s snippet wide ban. I have never heard or seen such a thing, so I just replied as such and told them that rich results and features can go away after a core update is released – it’s a quality thing.

So yes, I do see complaints after a core update that a site’s rich results might disappear. And you do see more complaints of this after core updates but I have not seen a complete ban of rich results or snippets in general.

John Mueller of Google actually addressed the exact video that was sent to me and said on Twitter “There’s certainly no “sitewide snippet ban”.

Here is the video floating around:

It specifically mentions the November 2021 core update – keep in mind, there were also spam updates in November 2021. And like I said before, these updates can impact if sites do gain or lose rich results and rich snippets.

John actually replied numerous times the other day to these complaints adding “From our POV those are just different kinds of snippets. We still show snippets for pages from there overall. There’s nothing technically different that you’d need to do to allow showing of featured snippets, they aren’t guaranteed, nor always shown in the same ways.”

Here are those responses:

I figured I’d share this wider at this point, since a Googler commented.

Google Ads To Disallow Some Skin Lightening Products

Google Ads To Disallow Some Skin Lightening Products

Google Ads will prohibit some skin lightening products starting in June 2020. Any skin lightening product that imply the superiority of one skin tone over another will not be allowed to advertise on Google Ads.

Google posted this new rule over here stating “In June, Google will update the Dangerous and Derogatory policy under the Inappropriate Content section to enforce against the promotion of skin lightening products that imply the superiority of one skin tone over another. These products will be prohibited under enforcement guidance.”

Google is warning advertisers who promote such products to remove those ads before June 30, 2022. So you have until the end of June to remove it or Google will remove those ads for you.

This policy will soon be added to the Inappropriate Content Google Ads policy in June. This policy is about Google saying how they “value diversity and respect for others, and we strive to avoid offending users, so we don’t allow ads or destinations that display shocking content or promote hatred, intolerance, discrimination, or violence.”
