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:

  • The Google Maverick Update Slowing Down
    What a wild several days with Google updates - we had fluctuations on July 11, 12 and 16th and then some massive chatter and Google search result fluctuations on July 18th or so. Google would not confirm or deny these updates, so it was named by the community the Google Maverick Update.
  • Google Webmaster Hangouts Tests Moving Off YouTube To Hangouts Meet

  • Google Says It Has Restored Broken Reviews
    Google has told Joy Hawkins that it has fixed all the reviews that disappeared over a technical issue.

Any reviews that stay missing have been removed for policy violation and will not be reinstated. Please refer here to our policy."
  • Google Bikes For Google Partners
    Joe Laratro shared more pictures of stuff Google gave his agency for being a Google Partner over the years. Here are some bikes with the Google logo on them. These are not the normal Google bikes you
