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 Algorithm Update Fluctuations From March 20th to 22nd
    As you know, we had a pretty big Google update that Google confirmed as a core update on March 12th. Around March 20th, 21st and 22nd, I saw the forum chatter spike back up a bit and the tools light up - but it wasn't as huge as that last update and we were busy with the rel=prev/next thing.
  • Google's rel=prev/next Messaging: Nothing Has Changed
    Google keeps saying the same thing over and over again regarding their communication around the rel=prev/next blunder. Simply that nothing has changed, to do pagination just like you always have been doing and that is it.
  • An Active XML Sitemap That Errors Out Won't Slow Google's Crawl
    Martin MacDonald asked Google's John Mueller if Google's crawl behavior might change if an active XML sitemap begins to error out. John said it shouldn't.
  • Gary Illyes The Googler Who Discovered rel=prev/next Was Not Being Honored
    Want to know which Googler found out that Google was no longer honoring the rel=prev/next? It seems it was Gary Illyes, a Google webmaster trends analyst who we often cover over here, was the individual who noticed this and escalated it to the public.
  • Google Image Search Tests Article Slide In Feature
    Here is a new test spotted by Jose Varghese on Twitter where Google Image search is letting you drag up the article an image is sourced from. As you can see from the GIF or video below, Google lets you drag up the Verge article from the bottom of the image preview screen.
  • Nice Interior Photo Of Google NYC Office
    Ryan Warrender, a Googler and also a UX guy, snapped this photo of the Google New York City office and posted it on Instagram. People are really liking it. You can see the greenery within the NYC off
