Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Search Buzz Video Recap: Google Makes Changes, Massive Algorithm Updates, Google Local Bus, AdSense Apps & Much More
    This week I covered that Google updated their numbers on how much Google has changed in search over the years, that is over 3,200 changes in just a year. Google made about three algorithmic updates this week in search, something is going on but Google won't comment...
  • Fixed Now: Google My Business Removes Reinstatement Request Form
    I get it Google, you can't handle all the Google Maps issues. You are seriously delayed with getting back to businesses. You are suspending businesses that should not be suspended. You are claiming those suspensions were fixed but they weren't. Now you drop the Google My Business local business reinstatement request?
  • Google Search Ranking Algorithm Update Again, Bigger Now?
    What is going on? Again, three times in about a week, we are seeing increase chatter and the tools are lighting up around a Google search ranking algorithm update. Yesterday morning the chatter once again spiked up and also many of the tools are showing huge fluctuations in the Google rankings.
  • Is Google News Violating Google's Webmaster Guidelines By Not Blocking Stories?
    It looks like Google is not just indexing but also ranking Google News search results pages and landing pages in Google search. This comes shortly after Google reportedly dropped Bing Discover search results pages from its index allegedly because it violated the webmaster guidelines of not noindexing search result pages.
  • Google Live Streamed The Google Webmaster Conference In Kolkata
    Google live streamed the almost 5 hours of their new Webmaster Conferences. Below is a recording of the Google Webmaster Conferences in Kolkata, India.
  • Easy Google Knowledge Panel Identity Theft?
    Ari Roth from Five Blocks showed us how he was able to claim the knowledge graph profile of the American theatrical producer Ari Roth. In short, this is an issue with whomever at Google is manually reviewing this verification request of not doing their research and making a mistake.
  • Google Moon Landing Logo For 50th Anniversary
    Today on Google's home page is a special Doodle, Google logo, for the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. When you click on the Doodle it plays a video of NASA's Apollo 11 mission with Michael Collins, one of the astronauts on Apollo 11 giving the narration of what happened.
  • Captain Encouragement Inspiring Google
    Look who it is at Google's main headquarters, the GooglePlex - it is Captain Encouragement. I never hear of him but he travels the country inspiring people everywhere.
