Google Testing More List View Top Stories With News Taking Over Web Results

Google News See Similar Headlines From

Google not only is testing more list view formats for the top stories section but also testing, for some queries and some searchers, having the first set of web results taken over by news stories.

Shalom Goodman posted a screenshot on Twitter for Alphabet earnings news and I cannot replicate it, and I’ve tried countless browsers both last night and today.

Here is the test web mobile search results interface where the top stories are taking over the web results and they are in a list view, so they push everything down, as opposed to having them in a carousel:

This is what I see, where the top stories carousel comes below the other search results:

Here it is for the Alphabet news:

I suspect news publishers would appreciate this new interface and for many trending news queries it does make sense, I suspect. But maybe not all. I mean, people searching for monkeypox might want level-headed information from an agency or health site and not more attention-grabbing headlines from news publishers? I guess it depends on who is searching. 🙂

Google Does Not Rotate Its Search Index

Published

Here is a bizarre question that was asked on the Google office hours video asking if Google rotates its index. The question kind of makes sense, because the SEO who asked said on one day they see their page indexed, the next it is gone, then it comes back – is there an index rotation?

The answer is no, Google does not rotate its index.

Here was the question “Is it true that Google rotates indexed pages? Because the site I’m working on is rotating on indexed pages. Like for example, page A is indexed on Monday through Thursday, but not indexed Friday through Sunday.”

Lizzi from Google said “Okay. So the answer is real quick. No, this is not true. We are not rotating the index based off of days of the week.”

They don’t rotate the index based off of anything, even day of week actually.

This was asked at the 9:56 mark:
