Jul 19, 2021 - 4:00 pm 1 by

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.

Google tries to clarify how sites show up in Google News but I don't think it helped that much. Google Hotel search ads now can show video extensions. Google My Business shows hours of operations for support. Google lets you delete the last 15 minutes of your search history. I interviewed Richard Naz from the Wall Street Journal, a lot of good nuggets in this one.
