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 Says All Separate Mobile URL Sites Should Move To Responsive
    Google's John Mueller said on Reddit this morning that he believes that all sites running a separate mobile URL for their mobile site solution should work on moving those implementations to a responsive site design instead. He said that mostly because it makes it easier to maintain, not because of any SEO benefit.
  • Google Knowledge Panel Explore Collections
    I am not sure if this is new, it may be from the late 2018 Google change but Google can now let you see all the products within a collection when Google shows a products carousel in the knowledge panel.
  • Google Property Sets Officially Shutting March 28th
    We knew it was coming by the end of this month but now we have a specific date. March 28, 2019 Google will close Property sets, which has now been officially replaced by Google's Domain properties.
  • Google Automatically Creating Domain Properties In Search Console
    As you know, Google launched domain properties since the old property sets are going away soon. But did you know that Google can also automatically create domain properties for you? I guess if you have already verified sites using DNS verification, Google may just create these properties for you?
  • Google: How We Select Dates For Search Results Snippets
    Since Google began showing dates in the search results snippets many have noticed Google pull the wrong date from time to time. Some of it is due to publishers intentionally tricking Google but most of the time, it is Google just getting it wrong. Google has published a blog post today around dates in snippets to help publishers and searchers understand how Google shows dates in snippets.
  • A Pigeon Head At Google NYC
    Sometimes you find the weirdest pictures on Instagram. Here is a photo of someone wearing a mascot looking pigeon head at the Google New York City office. He wrote "🐦The real face of #newyorker"
