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 September 2019 Core Update Is Live But Seems Slow To Roll Out
    Google began rolling out the September 2019 Core Update yesterday at around 2pm ET. I've been tracking the SEO industry chatter since and so far the chatter seems somewhat limited. There are some noticing big changes but for the most part, it seems like it is rolling out very slowly.
  • Vlog #17: Wil Reynolds On Google Stealing Clicks Through Google Ads & More
    Wil Reynolds (@wilreynolds) the founder of Seer Interactive started doing SEO 20 years ago...
  • Google Delivers On Webmasters Request To Control Search Result Snippets

  • Google Knowledge Panels With Translation Feature
    Google's John Mueller hinted a couple years ago that Google may decide to translate knowledge panels and/or featured snippets in other languages when applicable. I have not seen this happen until today when Gianluca Fiorelli shared this happening to him.
  • Free GoogleBot Stickers From Gary Illyes In Boston On Thursday
