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:

  • Is Google My Business To Provide Its Own Booking & Reservation System?
    Mike Blumenthal posted a screen shot on Twitter showing a possible sign that Google My Business may be experimenting with doing its own booking or reservation system or engine. He showed that under the booking tab, that Google was listed as a provider.
  • Vlog #27: Frederic Debut, Lead PM Of Bing's Core Ranking Team
    I sat with Frederic Debut (CoperniX), the Lead PM of Bing's Core Ranking Team, who has been at Microsoft for about 12 years now. It was a pretty amazing year for him...
  • Google Rich Results Test Shows Google Home & Smart Display Previews
    Google announced yesterday on Twitter that the rich results test can now show you how your recipe mark up looks not just in Google Search but also on Google Home devices and smart displays. Here is a screen shot from Google showing this in action.
  • Google Dictionary Search Results Add Images
    It looks like Google is starting to add images in its dictionary results in order to not just define a word but also show in photos what that word means. You know what they say, "a picture is worth a thousand words." Well, I guess this is Google going by that.
  • Google: Links Are Between Indexed URLs, If One Side Is Gone, The Link Is Ignored
    What happens if you cut the cord between the links, i.e. page A links to page B. If either page A or page B drop out of the Google index, that link is no longer counted. Basic stuff but John Mueller of Google put it simply this way on Twitter "links are between indexed URLs, so if one side is gone, the link is ignored."
  • Google Search Console Lost Image Search Click Data Between Nov 14 & 19
    Google has documented that it lost or "dropped" data around image search clicks. Google wrote "Some image click data was dropped; as a result, you might see a dip in both click rate and CTR during this period. The issue has been fixed. This issue affected only Search Console reporting, not your performance on Google Search."
  • Photos Of Google Japan New Startup Office
    Google posted photos of the new office the company opened in Japan for Google For Startups. Even Sundar Pichai, Google's CEO, was there on opening day to partake in the opening traditions.
