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.

I have a lot of stories around site quality and what Google wants to rank around that. Also a bit on having dedicated seasonal sales pages for users and Google. Finally, Microsoft launched Microsoft Start, its own version of Google Discover.

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Google: Website Quality Can't Be Fixed With Technical Changes
    Google's John Mueller said again that you cannot fix your overall website quality by making some technical changes. John said on Twitter "Website quality is not something you can fix with technical changes."
  • Microsoft Start - The Bing Version Of Google Discover
    Microsoft announced Microsoft Start, which looks and feels a lot like its own version of Google Discover. Microsoft describes it as a "personalized news feed and collection of informational content provides news from premium publishers, timely updates tailored to your interests, and is available when and where you want it."
  • Google PSA: Have Dedicated Pages For Seasonal Sales Events
    John Mueller from Google posted a reminder or PSA on Twitter this morning saying "having a dedicated page for some seasonal sales events is a good idea for ecommerce sites." This is advice from July, just a few months ago, that John is repeating today.
  • Google: Image Uniqueness Isn't Equivalent To Higher Quality
    Google's John Mueller said recently on Twitter that when it comes to images, images being unique does not mean the image is higher quality. John said "IMO with images in particular, uniqueness isn't equivalent to higher quality."
  • Google: If You Want To Rank For Those Queries Don't Syndicate Or Republish Content
    Google's John Mueller said sometimes syndicating or republishing content makes sense but it never makes sense if you want to rank for the queries that those pieces of content aim to rank for. He said on Twitter "if your goal is that only your site ranks for those queries, then syndicating / republishing is a bad idea."
  • Furry Google Logo GIF
    Here is a 3D render I spotted on Instagram of a furry Google logo. I made it into a GIF and shared it here. But you should check out the original on Instagram.
