Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Most SEOs Say Site UX Can Impact Your Google Rankings
    Dejan posted a Twitter poll the other day and it received almost 600 responses from within the SEO community. The question was "Good UX impacts rankings." The responses available were "directly," "indirectly," or "neither."
  • Google: Be Consistent. Use Either Slash Or No Slash After URL, Not Both.
    Google's John Mueller said it is best to be consistent with your URL structure and either choose to use slashes after the URL or not to use slashes after the URL. Try not to use both formats if possible.
  • Google News Search Results Tests Card Layout Again
    I am personally seeing the new card layout when I do searches in Google News on some browsers. On Chrome Mac, I get the card layout but on Safari Mac I get the old bundled list layout.
  • Google Showing More Related Search Boxes In Image Search
    Google is now showing more related search boxes in the image search results. Google has for some time shown the related search box but now more people are seeing it come up more often and several times as you scroll through the image results in Google Images.
  • Google Search Lets You Play Tennis In The Search Results For Wimbledon
    Go to Google on desktop or mobile and search for [Wimbledon] then take that live scores box and scroll the carousel where it shows women's scores, men's scores, etc to the left and you will see a tennis ball. Click the tennis ball and presto, you go into game mode.
  • Googlers Go Bowling
    We all know Google has a bowling alley at their main offices, the GooglePlex, we've seen videos of it. But here is a more recent photo of some Googlers using the bowling alley for some relaxing time.
