Here is a recap of what happened in the search forums today, through the eyes of the Search Engine Roundtable and other search forums on the web.

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Google Search Console Stops Testing Domain Property?
    Did Google end their beta test of Domain Property, the feature that aims at simplifying property sets in the Google Search Console. The help document Google had back when it was being tested now leads to a page not found message.
  • Unstable Drug Rehab Google Search Results
    The SEO community is scratching their heads around the drug rehab niche and how it performs in the Google organic search results. In short, the results for some sites are unstable and all over the place. But it is not only for the drug rehab area, other niches have seen this unpredictability for specific sites as well.
  • Google's Nofollow Link Attribute Didn't Help Improve Blog Comments; Sorry
    Yesterday at Search Engine Land I wrote how the Google blog turned off comments and how the nofollow link attribute wasn't able to save even that blog in terms of helping the comments become useful. I then went back in history covering why Google released the nofollow link attribute.
  • Google Site Command For 301 Redirect URL Shows The Origin URL
    Google's site command will show the URL you put into Google for the site command, even if the URL itself has been redirected using a 301 redirect. I believe it has worked like this for years and years. But Google's John Mueller and Danny Sullivan are now defending why Google does this.
  • Google Doodle Celebrates Sake Dean Mahomed
    Today on the Google home page is a special Doodle, a Google logo, for Sake Dean Mahomed. It is unclear when his birthday is, but he was born sometime during 1759 and lived until his young 90s. Sake Dean Mahomed was an "Anglo-Indian traveller, surgeon and entrepreneur who was one of the most notable early non-European immigrants to the Western World," Wikipedia says.
  • A Google Mega Super Rubik's Cube
    Here is a photo from Google's Instagram channel with a mega super Rubik's cube with the G logo on it. Google is asking if you can solve this puzzle or not. Can you?
