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:

  • Vlog #10: Ruth Burr Reedy On Google Algorithms, EAT, Quality Raters Guidelines & More
    In episode #10 of the vlog series at the Search Engine Roundtable I interviewed Ruth Burr Reedy (@ruthburr)...
  • Google Tests Bigger Search Results Fonts
    Over the past week or so, I've received numerous tweets and notifications from the community that Google is testing much larger fonts in the search results page. Well, now I am seeing it myself in some browsers and yes, it feels much bigger.
  • Google: You Can Remove Links From Your Disavow File & Those Links Count Again
    Google's John Mueller clarified on Twitter that if you remove links from your disavow file, those links will start to count again - well, if Google hasn't discounted them other ways (i.e. Penguin or other methods). I am surprised I never outright covered this before, but I 100% mentioned it in numerous posts.
  • SEO Advice: Stop Spamming Googlers With Link Requests & Lists
    I get it, you automate a lot of your job - that is the efficient way to spam but try to put into your automation a blacklist. Blacklist emailing anyone at a @google.com domain, black list emailing anyone with the name John Mueller, Gary Illyes or anyone who works on search at Google or Bing - LinkedIn is a good resource for that.
  • New Native Lazy-Loading Support In Chrome 76 & Evergreen GoogleBot
    So now as SEOs, you need to follow all the latest changes in Chrome because whatever support Chrome adds, it is likely that GoogleBot will support it as well with the evergreen GoogleBot. Ilya Grigorik from the Google team posted that the Chrome team added native lazy loading support to Chrome 76 and that means when GoogleBot is running off of 76, which should be soon, it also will natively support it.
  • A Waze Carpool Kiosk
    Here is a photo of a kiosk that says Waze Carpool. I guess it is a method to use the Waze carpool feature when you do not have your own device and want to use the service?
