SEOs Not Confident In Giving Advice Around Google Discover


Alan Kent from Google posted an “informal poll” on Twitter asking SEOs “how confident are you in giving advice or planning strategies for Google Discover?” The poll only had 161 responses, so it is super informal but it showed that most SEOs are not confident in this area.

12.4% said they are confident, 26.1% said only if they are pressed to do so, and 61.5% said they have “no idea.” Here is the poll:

The results are legit – meaning, this is what I’d expect to see from SEOs. If you read through the Google Discover stories – you will learn quickly that it is hard to be confident in gaining Google Discover placement. While we know core updates can impact a publishers chances to show in Google Discover, we also know that many publishers cannot count on consistent Google Discover traffic. Google even warned us not to depend on Discover traffic.

Do you agree or disagree with the poll?

Google Testing Search Results Without Descriptions Again


Google has confirmed it has been testing Google Search result listings without any descriptions, again. Google first tested this in 2015 and is now testing it again for the past couple of weeks.

Aishwarya Tapadar from Google confirmed this in a Google Web Search Help thread saying “this is a small experiment that will be ending in the next day or so.”

Here is a screenshot from that thread with what this looks like (click to enlarge):

Aishwarya Tapadar from Google added “we appreciate your patience and apologize for any inconvenience.”

I am not a fan of search results without descriptions but I guess Google is collecting data for some legislation purposes?

Google launched a new robots tag named indexifembedded that controls indexing of embedded content. Google Search Console had an image search reporting bug it is working to fix, it is just a reporting issue. Google Ads has new tools to help you transfer from smart shopping and local campaigns to performance max. Google probably won’t go live with a label in the search results that meet the page experience update criteria. Newzdash data shows that 67% of Google search results have duplicated top stories and web search results. An SEO poll shows that most SEOs agree that if Google gave 100% transparency in the search results it would lead to poorer quality results. A dental office is named Dentist Near Me but is that a good local SEO strategy? We also have an SEO poll on near me queries. Google’s John Mueller said there is no schema for product images in search. Google launched a new search refinement named People Search Next. Google Maps now shows “updates from customers” which might be a concern for review management. Google is deprecating the Google My Business API on April 20th, it will be replaced. Google is once against testing search results without snippet descriptions. Google confirms it is testing showing favicons in the search ads. Google image search related colored theme design. Google is discontinuing Cameos on Google. Google AdSense is separating out YouTube earnings with other earnings. Google Assistant now lets us say “stop” without saying “hey Google” first.And if you want to help sponsor those vlogs, go to patreon.com/barryschwartz.
