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:

  • Search Buzz Video Recap: Google Algorithm Update, Two Indexing Bugs, New Mobile Search Design, Quality Raters Guidelines & More
    It was a pretty busy week with a possible Google search algorithm update on Wednesday. In addition, we had two different indexing bugs, one on Wednesday, which was fixed and one last night, which is being worked on...
  • Confirmed: New Google Indexing Issue Unrelated To Previous One
    Last night at around 8pm ET while in a taxi back to my home from the airport, I wrote on Search Engine Land that Google's indexing issue was back. Google then confirmed a new indexing issue on Twitter at around 2:20pm ET the following morning. But they said this issue is different and not related to the one from Wednesday morning.
  • Google May Have Fixed The Cache Page Delay
    If you look at the Google cache on many sites that are updated regularly (daily or more often), you will see that the cache date is now within a couple days old. It looks like maybe Google fixed this prolonged outdated cache date bug that they told everyone not to worry about.
  • Google Search Console Speed Report Will Be Slow To Come
    Google announced a new speed report that they are beta testing while at Google I/O. They told us all to sign up for the beta if we want early access. Well, that speed report is not coming to us any time soon. There is no speedy delivery for that report.
  • Google Map Pins With Your Company Logo
    Google is testing using company logos in map pins. Darren Friel spotted an example of this with the Early Settler brand. Here is that screen shot.
  • Google: Two Web Sites Out Of One Won't Result In Twice As Much Visibility
    Google's John Mueller said on Twitter that if you think it is a good idea to take your web site and break it up into two different web sites, you might want to reconsider. He said "If you make 2 websites out of one, you're not going to be twice as visible in search."
  • The London SEO Community Is Special
    I am sitting here in the London airport waiting for my flight out and I keep thinking how amazing the SEO and SEM industry and community is here in London. It was my first time at an event in London, SMX London and Rising Media flew me out here and put me up. I got to say, everyone I met in London was just super special.
  • Google NYC Unicorn
    Here is a photo I found on Instagram of someone next to one of those inflatable unicorns at the Google NYC office. Yea, up on one of the rooftops at Google New York doing a unicorn pose.
