Search Buzz Video Recap: Google Algorithm Chatter, Bad Links, News Bugs, Bing Machine Learning & More

Dec 14, 2018 - 8:55 am 0 by

This week I covered a possible small Google algorithm update that touched down sometime over the week. Google said you really shouldn’t have to worry about bad links but if you do, you can use the disavow file. Google changed up the AMP error report to be more generic. Google News publishers are still complaining about indexing and ranking. Bing said machine learning helps them make search ranking more human curated like. Google said just because a lot of scrapers take content from your site, it doesn’t mean your site is quality. Google moved some of the old reports in the old Search Console to the new ones. Google fixed the data bug between the old Search Analytics report and the new Performance report. Google rolled out image thumbnails in the related searches section. Google made the URL clickable in the search results snippets. Local SEOs are saying that the Google Posts traffic have drastically declined. Google renamed in Google My Business the communications manager to the site manger. The Google Maps For You Tab is now on iOS devices and expanded to more countries on Android. Google Lens is now on iOS devices. Google is closing down Google+ even soon because of another security issue. Google posted their Year in Search for 2018. I am sorry about the internet issue, the main Wifi router dropped during the recording. That was this past week in search at the Search Engine Roundtable.
