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 Asks You To Verify These Facts
    Google is asking some searchers with some queries to "verify the facts to help others." Brian Freiesleben shared an example of this on Twitter this morning and Mordy Oberstein shared on Twitter a couple months ago. It seems to be on some knowledge panels.

  • Microsoft Advertising Xbox Prize
    Looks like Microsoft Advertising sent out some prizes. Well, this prize is an XBox One X and it was sent to Mabo Media in the UK. The letter says congratulations, this package has been supplied by M
