Daily Search Forum Recap: June 23, 2021

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 released a new policy around showing different availability on your product page compared to the cart page. Google also is testing new reports in Google My Business. Google tests extras section for movie queries. Shopify now lets you edit your robots.txt file. And a nice poll shows you where SEOs go for help. Also, Google announced a new spam update in Google Search and I wrote about it at Search Engine Land already but will have more insights into this tomorrow at this site.

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Google My Business Rush Hours & About Your Company Reports
    Google may be releasing two new reports within Google My Business Insights. One report shows your business's popular times or "rush hour" and the other report shows what your company is known for.
  • Shopify Now Lets You Edit Your Robots.txt File - Yay?!
    The folks at Shopify were excited to announce that they now let you modify and edit your robots.txt file. Previously, Shopify handled it all automatically but now, if you know better, you can make your own modifications.
  • Google Merchant Center Inaccurate Availability Enforcement
    Google is replacing the "Delivery issues" policy violation within Google Merchant Center with a new policy violation named "Inaccurate availability (due to inconsistent availability between the landing page and checkout pages on your website)."
  • Google Tests Extras Section For Movie Queries
    Google seems to be testing a new section in the mobile search results for movie related queries. The new section is titled "Extras" and shows additional details on the movie from analysis, interviews, recaps and more.
  • Where SEOs Go For Help: Forums, Twitter, Reddit & More
    Matt Tut posted a poll on Twitter asking where do SEOs go for help when they run into an SEO that they cannot solve themselves. The poll has over 850 responses and the responses probably have a bias towards Twitter (since it is a Twitter poll) but it interesting.
  • Lily Ray's Little Nephew Playing With GoogleBot
    Lily Ray shared a video a few years back of her then toddler nephew playing with a GoogleBot. I think it is pretty cute and it made me smile, I thought it might make you smile. She shared the video
