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 #16: Dr. Pete Meyers Of Moz On Mozcast & Google Algorithm Changes
    In episode #16 of the vlog series at the Search Engine Roundtable I interviewed Dr. Pete Meyers (aka Dr. Pete) (@dr_pete) of Moz. Dr. Pete and I share a similar passion - the passion is a weird one - we love to track how Google changes its search results...
  • Google: Redirect Old AJAX Crawling Scheme URLs Using JavaScript Redirects
    Google's John Mueller said in an #AskGoogleWebmasters video that now that "you no longer need to do anything special for hashbang URLs," if you still have those old URLs for the old AJAX crawling scheme, you should redirect those URLs.
  • New Report Offensive Images In Google Web Search Results
    I think this is new, a new way to report images as being offensive or having issues in Google's main web search results. Sunny sent this to me on Twitter and I think it is new, but basically there is a "report images" button that when you click it, it lets you report specific images to Google.
  • Weird: Google Auto-Complete Suggestions Showing Emojis
    Go to Google.com and just type into the search box "what" and you will see Google suggest the search phrase what does the antsð¡ð mean. This is no joke, here is a screen shot I took of it myself.
  • Data Shows A 4-5 Point Drop In Review Rich Results In Google
    Google just announced this week a new algorithmic update to not show review markup, review rich results, in the Google search results for specific cases. You can learn more about those new rules over here. And it looks like Google is acting on it. According to Moz and RankRanger's tools there is a 4 to 5 point drop in the rate these review rich results show up in Google search.
  • Google Launches Video Key Moments For YouTube Videos In Search
    The other day we reported that we spotted Google testing a cool feature in search that shows you a timeline that shows you what is in a video. Well, Google announced this as video key moments and it works for English videos posted to YouTube and Google will expand it to other providers soon.
  • Googlers Painting
    Here is a photo of a bunch of Googlers showing off their artistic skills by painting a lighthouse. I wonder if they picked a lighthouse because of Google Lighthouse. Well, I hope they did but I doubt
