This week in search, we saw a few more algorithm shifts with the Google search results, one around March 26th and one around March 20th. Google dropped the info command, removing the ability to see the Google selected canonical for any URL but now you can see that information for your verified properties in Google Search Console’s URL inspection tool. I published the survey results for the Google March 2019 core update this week. Bing announced they improved their intelligent answers, text to speech and visual search capabilities. Google AMP and mobile friendly testing tools now allows for code editing in the tool. Google’s messaging around the rel=next/prev is that nothing has changed, but it has. Gary Illyes was the Googler who spotted it changed. Google said accents in URLs work fine. Google said you can redirect lower quality pages to higher quality pages. Google published a video on SEO for Angular sites. The old Search Console has only a handful of features remaining. Google said you should slowly remove other properties once you do the domain property verification in Search Console. Google said Google Partners do not get preferential treatment in search. Google is testing a new search bar with icons in them. Google Image search is testing a slide in article feature. Google launched the new Google Ads Editor to replace AdWords Editor. Google Ads Keyword Planner has some new features. Matt Cutts still leaves SEO spam traps. Ahrefs wants to compete with Google on search. That was this past week in search at the Search Engine Roundtable.
