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:

  • Google On Mega-Menus: Nothing To Be Concerned About, Yet...
    John Mueller of Google posted on Twitter asking "How do you feel about "mega-menus" on ecommerce sites?" He then followed up saying there is "no secret announcement lined up" around Google penalizing e-commerce sites with mega-menus.
  • Rumors That Shortnames Causing Google My Business Suspensions
    There are a lot of rumors and suspicions that Google My Business suspensions are due to the release of the new shortnames feature. I am not sure if that is true, we covered the suspension issues well before the launch of the shortnames release and we even covered this rumors earlier as well.
  • Some YouTubers Angry That Google Search Shows Videos From Non-YouTube Sources
    Often you see people complaining that Google is favoring their own properties over third-party properties. Like showing Google My Business Listings over Yelp or Google Job listings over results from Indeed or showing YouTube videos over videos from other providers. But here, we have a YouTuber upset with Google that Google is showing videos from third-parties and not YouTube.
  • Google Autocomplete Lightens & Hides Search Results As You Type
    It looks like Google has rolled out a new search user experience in the desktop search results. When you start typing your query and Google shows you search results, those search results will be lightened up, the transparency will go down and be less visible as you type.
  • Google Search Recommends Google Assistant For Jokes

  • Google Lollipops
    Who doesn't like lollipops? Who doesn't like cake pops? Who doesn't like Google branded cake lollipops? Well, some of you probably don't like it. But here is a photo of one from an event at the Go
