Google Won't & Can't Manually Change HubSpot Weird Search Results

The other day, I spotted a conversation with Victor Pan, the head of Technical SEO at HubSpot and Danny Sullivan, the Search liaison at Google about how HubSpot’s home page is not the number one listing in Google Search for a query on HubSpot.

Instead, some of the internal HubSpot.com pages rank above the home page for some reason. Yesterday, an internal page ranked one, with the home page, along with other internal pages, under that main listing as Sitelinks. The next day, the home page was listed in the main results but in the third position under two other internal pages.

It is just weird but despite it being weird and likely not super helpful to searchers not to see the HubSpot home page listed number one in the Google search results for a search on HubSpot, Google won’t and can’t make manual changes to its search results.

Danny Sullivan from Google said “we can’t and wouldn’t make any change to an individual ranking.” “But we can look into an issue to see if there are general improvements,” he added, which means they can try to see where the algorithm went wrong and see how to improve the algorithm to fix this from happening here and in other places. Danny Sullivan did add that it “does surprise me to see an internal page leading above the sitelinks.”

Here are those conversations on Twitter:

Again, the other day, an internal page ranked one, with the home page, along with other internal pages, under that main listing as Sitelinks. The next day, it was straight out search results with the home page ranking in the third spot under internal pages:

Wonder when the home page will rank again in the number one spot…

We had another Google Search On event yesterday and in case you missed it or you simply do not want to read through a lot of fluff, here is the short version. Note, I am pretty sure we covered tests of all of these announcements in the past at this site, so everything should look familiar.

Again, this is the quick format version, since I did a longer version at Search Engine Land.

  • Multisearch near me launching finally for English/US
  • Google Lens translate overlay much cleaner now
  • Google iOS app adds shortcuts
  • Google Search autocomplete with tappable query builder and richer results
  • Google Search adds filters to the search tools bar
  • New ways to explore Google Maps on your phone
  • More visual knowledge panels
  • Explore as you scroll to roll out
  • The discussions and forums feature also
  • Machine translated local and international news
  • About this result displays personalization for search results (mostly shopping)
  • Search with the word “shop” where Google will refine the query to be more shopping focused
  • Shop the look in Google Search

Here is the replay of the event if you want to watch it or read about it here.

Here is a summary based on Google’s tweets:

Note: Google removed some tweets, but I kept them because you can see the text portion of those tweets.
