Highly Cited Label For Google Search Tops Stories Now Live

Google announced a new label for top stories named “highly cited” about two weeks ago. The highly cited label is now showing up for select news stories in the mobile search results.

Joe Pawlikowski spotted this in the wild and posted a screenshot of it on Twitter (hat tip @ShalomGood):

I can replicate this, so this does seem to be fully live in the US English mobile results.

The highly cited label will help searchers “identify stories that have been frequently cited by other news organizations, giving you a simple way to find the most helpful or relevant information for a news story,” Google said. Google added that this works for all sorts of stories including “investigative article, to an interview, an announcement, a press release or a local news story.”

So it is now live and the way Google knows if a label should be added to a news story is based on links, in general.

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:
