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: Sites Rank Well For A Short Period Of Time
    Google's John Mueller said it is normal for a site to rank well for a short period of time for a specific query. He said on Twitter "It can happen that a site ranks or a short period of time for a query." It can happen a lot.
  • Google: Says Dates On Articles Makes It Easier To Recognize High-Quality Evergreen Content
    Google's John Mueller again is saying that putting dates on content and articles is a good thing for the quality of a piece of content on the web. John said on Twitter the other day "Better for me is to know what the date was, that makes it easier to recognize high-quality evergreen content."
  • Google: You Should Document If A Doctor Reviewed Your Medical Content
    Google's John Mueller was asked how should a web site document that its medical and health content was reviewed by a doctor or expert on the topic. John said you can use text, link to the doctor's profile and add other elements to the page to communicate this.
  • Google: There Is No Sandbox

  • Google Ads To Drop Accelerated Delivery On September 17th
    Google Ads announced that they are doing away with accelerated delivery starting on September 17, 2019. Google said "Starting September 17, 2019, Standard delivery will be the only ad delivery method for Search campaigns, Shopping campaigns, and shared budgets. Accelerated delivery will no longer be available."
  • Congratulations! Bing Spam Fighter, Frédéric Dubut, Gets Married
    Frédéric Dubut, who works at Bing in search quality and fighting spam - someone we have gotten to know over the years, recently got married. He shared this photo on Twitter from his wedding day. So
