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 Can See Disavow Links Between Canonical URLs
    Google's John Mueller said it is best to disavow all the possible places the link may be pointing to, even if you redirect one URL to another and someone is linking to the original URL. But he said Google can follow and see "links between canonical URLs, so when there's a redirect involved, you'd need to check which one is canonical."
  • Searchers Upset That Easter Got Google Treatment While Passover, Ramadan & Others Did Not
    Google on Sunday had a pretty unique and new home page feature for Easter. It was the first time they did something like this in general but not the first time they had an Easter Google Doodle. There was no Doodle, but if you clicked on the I'm Feeling Lucky button, Easter eggs would drop and fill up the page.
  • Google Images, Featured Snippets & Videos More Often In Web Search Results
    It looks like Google is showing more vertical search features in the core web search results - more often. Yesterday I covered at Search Engine Land that the image search box is showing up way more often in Google's web results than previously. But also it looks like featured snippets and maybe even video boxes are showing up more often this past month.
  • Google Maps Business Reviews Vanishing After Suspension Removal
    There are numerous reports of Google Maps listings, Google My Business listings that have had their suspension removed then seeing all of the reviews they had on their listings vanish. Joy Hawkins at the Local Search Forums wrote "listings that are suspended and then reinstated are missing all their reviews. This isn't intended and Google is aware of the issue."
  • Google Take Your Child To Work Day Fun
    The other day at the Google headquarters in Mountain View, California - the GooglePlex, Google hosted a Take Your Child To Work Day event. Here are some photos from that even that I found on Instagra
