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 has finally launched the Perspectives mobile search filter. Google Local Services ads may have targeted reviews. Bing Chat now supports voice search on desktop. Google Search Console improved the video indexing report. Matt Diggity interviewed the people behind Conch House, the site that dominated Google search for a few months by scraping Amazon content. I also posted another interview with Menachem Ani on PMax for lead generation and smart bidding with Google Ads.

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Google Finally Launches The Perspectives Search Filter
    Google has finally launched the perspectives filter in the Google mobile search results. There is a ton of confusion around what perspectives is because Google has released or tested a number of search features over the past year, but the perspectives search filter is now live, the one Google demoed at I/O.
  • Google Search Console Improved Video Indexing Reporting
    Google has released a Search Console update to improve the video indexing reporting. Google said this will provide you with more specific issues with clear actions to help you make your videos more prominent on Google Search.
  • The SEO Conch House Story: Scrapped Amazon Content That Ranked Incredibly In Google Search
    Matt Diggity interviewed the two of the six people who ran Conch-House.com, site that completely dominated the Google search results for a couple of months. In short, they posted 6,000 posts per day by scrapping review content from Amazon. The site grew to 6 million users and $19,000 per day within one month but the site was penalized by Google and no longer ranks now.
