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 Moving Google Posts Back Up?
    A few months ago, Google stopped showing Google Posts in the top location, somewhat above the fold, in the local panel for a business. That seemed to have led to Google Posts performance drastically dropping off. Now, Google may be testing moving the Google Posts back up.
  • NBA All Star Voting On Google
    Did you know you can go to Google and vote for your favorite NBA players for the All Star game and events. It works on Google.com, Google Assistant or on the NBA web site or apps. Go to Google and search for [nba all stars] or any team name or NBA related query and you'll see it.
  • Google AMP Featured Snippets Anchor & Highlight Content
    9to5Google found a new Google feature that works on mobile for some featured snippets that lead to AMP pages. If you click on an AMP based featured snippet in mobile search, Google may jump you down, anchor or scroll you down, to the specific section of content in the featured snippet and also highlight the content.
  • Unicode Works Within Google Local Listings
    Andy Simpson spotted a local panel that was using unicode to make the business name stand out from the rest. Andy was doing a normal search for a barber shop and this listing came up in Google's local results, which caught his eye.
  • New Year's Eve 2018 Logos & Themes From Google, Bing, Yahoo & Baidu
    2019 is around the corner and to celebrate, Google, Bing, Yahoo, Baidu and others in the search industry have special logos and home page themes. Here are screen captures from these sites for the 2018 New Year's Eve event.
  • Google Log Cabin Room
    Here is a room at one of the Google offices that looks like it is part of a log cabin. You got the wood walls and ceilings, the brown furniture, the interesting mantel and fireplace with stone.
