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:

  • Bing Search APIs Are Moving To Azure Marketplace
    Bing announced on the search blog that the Bing Search APIs are moving from Azure Cognitive Services Platform to Azure Marketplace. This is actually going to be a three-year process for those who are actively using the APIs on Azure Cognitive Services Platform, so you got time.
  • Google Short Videos Carousel In Search Results
    Google seems to be testing another form of carousel feature in the Google Search results. This one is called "short videos" and was spotted for a search on recipes by Saad AK on Twitter.
  • Google Tests Black Search Tools Bar
    The other day we saw Google testing a deeper black border around the search bar. Now Google seems to be testing a black, instead of blue, font and underline for the search bar tools under the search box on both desktop and mobile.
  • Google Cache Link Not Dependent On Site Traffic
    Google's John Mueller was asked if sites with higher traffic are more likely to be given a cache link in Google Search. The answer John Mueller gave was no, "our caching in search isn't dependent on traffic," he said.
  • Microsoft Advertising New Promotion Extensions
    Microsoft launched new "Promotion Extensions" that allows advertisers on Microsoft Advertising to highlight a special offer or a special deal in your text ad. You can also tie your deal to a holiday or special occasion. This is for all advertisers in the United States.
  • Frederic Dubut's Halloween Costume (Oh, His Dog Dressed Up Also)
    Frédéric Dubut shared some photos of his costume on Halloween, but the cute part is not the pumpkin he is holding or the skeleton behind him but rather his dog dressed up as a postal officer.
