Manual Actions For Discover & Google News


About a year ago, Google first introduced guidelines around manual actions for Google Discover and Google News. In the past week, I have seen numerous news publishers, both large and small, receive such manual actions. I believe this is the first time I have seen documented cases of news publishers receiving specific Google News and Google Discover manual actions.

These specific violations that were cited that I spotted this week include violations for:

  • News and Discover policy violation: Misleading content
  • News and Discover policy violation: Medical content
  • News and Discover policy violation: Manipulated media
  • and more…

Glenn Gabe shared some screenshots of these violations on Twitter for publishers who have reached out to him regarding these manual actions:

Here is a set of complaints on Twitter from another publisher:

Keep in mind, these manual actions to not impact web search, they should only impact Google Discover and Google News.

You can see a list of the manual actions for Google News and Discover over here.

Google Maps Testing Overlay Box For Local Listing

Google is testing an expandable map feature in Google Search for when you see the map load in mobile search. This is instead of when you click on the map and it takes you into Google Maps, here Google is just expanding the map screen larger and adds a link to go to Google Maps. Also, Google is testing tabs in the business profile via in Google Maps.

This expandable map test was spotted by Shameem Adhikarath on Twitter, here is a GIF of it in action:

You can see that after it expands, there are buttons to Open in Maps and Driving Directions.

Also, Punit spotted tabs again in the Google Business Profile listing in Google Maps. We saw this back in June, here is his tweet on this:
