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:

  • Google: We Try Recognize Author Details, Reviewer Details & Overall Site Quality Details
    Google's John Mueller said in that video hangout at the 39:51 mark that Google does try to recognize "additional details about information about the author, information about the reviewers, about the website overall, through through a number of ways."

  • Google Warns: Embedding Instagram Images Can Cause SEO Issues
    Google's John Mueller was asked about why a site saw a major dropping in image search traffic after embedding Instagram images on his site. John decided to test it and noticed that Instagram on the embeds use a no index robots meta tag, that tells Google that they don't want those images indexed together with the page itself.
  • Google Will Share More Details About Indexing Issues
    Danny Sullivan from Google told me on Twitter that Google will share more details about the indexing issues, where Google was not able to index new content for about an 24-hour period. He said Google will post time frames and post notes about the impact in Google Search Console after Google does its internal assessment of the issue.
  • Google My Business Edit Hotel Services & Amenities
    Hotels can now edit its services and amenities in the "Hotel attributes" section of their Google My Business account. Google My Business was having issues with hotel edits earlier last week and it might have been related to this upgrade? In any event, now hotels can login to Google My Business to modify this data.
  • Google Tests Infinite Scroll Search Results Interface Again
    We've seen Google testing showing page two results and more on the first page of Google's search results. More recently with the "more results" button on desktop (it is live on mobile). But also just plain old-fashion infinite scroll. Here Kiran posted a screen shot of an infinite scroll interface with a Google colored divider that shows page two results.
  • Jamaican Googler - Jamooglers T-Shirt
    Here is a t-shirt I found on Instagram for Jamooglers, Jamaican Googlers. It was posted by Stevie Rich from inside the Google New York City offices. I know there are lots of groups like this within
