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:

  • Are Google Mobile Searches Now 65% Of All Searches
    Greg Sterling was at the Engage conference last week and tweeted that a Google representative said that 65% of all searches are mobile. He didn't say which Googler said this, it doesn't seem to have been confirmed to have been said and I have not seen a Googler say this before.
  • Tell Google What You Want On The Google Search Developer Portal
    Martin Splitt from Google asked the SEO community what they want to see on the Google Search Developer docs that is not currently there. Martin wrote "if you could ask me to explain something about Google Search that isn't on developers.google.com/search yet, what would that be."
  • Google Search Team Stricter With Google's Internal SEO Team
    John Mueller from Google said that the Google search team is very strict with Google's internal SEO team. He said on Reddit "I imagine the SEO team at Google has a pretty hard time comparatively, given how strictly we separate the rest of search from their side."
  • Google Still Working On Evergreen GoogleBot Support For Tools
    Back in May, three months ago, Google released the evergreen GoogleBot. Basically GoogleBot is on the same version as your version of Chrome, which gives Google more capabilities to crawl and access your web pages. But the tools, tools within Google Search Console and other tools are still not yet using the evergreen GoogleBot.
  • Google Local Pack Tests Image Carousel For Each Local Listing
    Google is crazed about carousels and here is another format of the Google local pack. This local pack shows not one image, but an image carousel per local listing in the local pack.
  • Rare Photo: Gary Illyes From Google Smiling
    Gary Illyes from Google is not of the smilers - in fact, it is rare to get him on camera smiling. Well, his co-worker, Takeaki Kanaya, captured him smiling and posted the photo on Twitter.
