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.

We are seeing big swings in the Google Search results, maybe a continuation of the unconfirmed Juneteenth Google search ranking update? Google updated its help documentation for HTTP status codes, Googlebot and job postings. Google Business Profiles now supports a new attribute for LGBTQ+ owned businesses. Google is testing rounded favicons in the search results. Microsoft Bing is testing the Secure and HTTPS labels in its search results.
