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:

  • Images In Featured Snippets & Google Search Console Rankings Can Confuse You
    Do you ever notice that your rankings in Google Search Console shows you rank for a particular keyword phrase in position one but you can't figure out why. Sometimes it is related to regional rankings and you need to use the filters to narrow it down, but other times it can be related to featured snippets.
  • Google My Business Team Backlog & Experiencing Delays Of 2-3 Weeks
    Google My Business has told one local SEO via Twitter direct message that the team is delayed 2-3 weeks. They wrote "please be aware that the team is currently experiencing a backlog and responses may be delayed for up to 2-3 weeks."
  • Google To Webmaster: Start Over & Make A New Web Site
    Every now and then you hear advice from Google to a webmaster where they simply give them the hard news that they need to start over. Google's John Mueller did that on Sunday when he told one webmaster that he needs to start over.
  • Google Search Console Coverage Report Suffering 10-Day Delay
    Yet again, Google Search Console is having reporting issues. This time the coverage report is now experiencing a 10-day delay. Normally this report is about two to three days behind schedule - which is normal. But 10-days is not a normal delay.
  • Google Tests Knowledge Panels Without Attribution
    Google is testing displaying knowledge panels in the search results that do not show any attribution. When I test this, I get Google attributing Wikipedia for the content but in a test that @Venkatramani spotted, it shows a similar knowledge panel but has no link or attribution to Wikipedia for the content or images.
  • Google Cloud On Mount Everest Base Camp
    Here is a photo I found on Twitter from Robert Enslin, President of Google Cloud sales, who brought the Google Cloud flag up to Mount Everest. He posted a message about joining his team at Google.
