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.

Google said the November 2021 core update is done - we even saw some tremors this morning. Google is possibly rolling out the expandable snippet carousel. Google Ads is testing an upgraded reporting section for ad extensions. Google says only pure spam and adult old domains are domains you want to stay away from when buying a domain name for your site. Google Merchant Center has a report to show badge eligibility.
