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 March 2019 Core Update Had Many Reversals But It Was Not A Reversal
    There is a lot of speculation around the March 2019 core update that started on March 12th that it reversed what the Medic update did on August 1, 2018. While many sites did see gains after dropping from the August 1st update, many did not.
  • Video Thumbnails In Google Search Results Snippets
    We've seen examples before with video thumbnails in the Google search results snippets. But it feels like Google is showing video thumbnails more often now, like they are with image thumbnails more often.
  • Q&A On Google - Showing Questions That Need Answers In Search
    Last May we reported Google is testing asking searchers for answers to questions they might not have search results for. This was primarily in India and other countries where Google may not have as vast of a web index to provide answers on any and every topic. Well, it looks like Google is rolling out a new interface for those answers.
  • The Search Community Mourns The Loss Of John Thyfault
    I am sad to report that the search community has lost another young soul recently. John Thyfault, the VP, Search Engine & Social Media Marketing at Beasley Direct passed away at the young age of 54.
  • Google Logo For Seiichi Miyake, Inventor Of Tactile Blocks
    Google has a pretty cool looking Doodle, special logo, on their home page to celebrate the life and contributions of the Japanese inventor Seiichi Miyake. The logo shows of his invention, the tactile blocks or Tenji blocks, to help the visually impaired.
  • Neon Sign For Google Bike
    Here is a photo I found on Instagram of a neon sign in the shape and colors of the Google bikes. I guess this is from the area where they have most of the Google bikes at the GooglePlex in Mountain V
