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.

Google explained how they understand content in a video in a podcast with a bunch of Googlers. Google continues to test "things to know" in the search results. Google launched vehicle ads to all US based advertisers. I spotted search ads that say "no products found" - how is that for an ad.

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Google Search Ads: No Products Found

  • Google Shows Buddhist Calendar Year For News Stories
    Here is a screenshot of Google News on mobile showing a date that is not the Gregorian date but rather the Buddhist calendar date and year. I assume this is being pulled from some sort of setting override on the phone or in Google Search settings.
  • Search News Buzz Video Recap: Google Search Turbulence, SafeSearch Classification Is Faster, Plus More SEO & PPC Topics
    On March 4th we had more Google search turbulence, a possible Google search ranking update around then. Google's John Mueller said they sped up the SafeSearch filter classification process. The translated indexing issue we spoke about last week was from the Google Cloud team...
  • Google Spirole Umbrella Office Design
    Back when Google was accepting pitches for the new Charleston campus in Mountain View, California, one pitch was for a Spirole building. This would have been a building in the form of three kinetic u
