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:
- Vlog #10: Ruth Burr Reedy On Google Algorithms, EAT, Quality Raters Guidelines & More
In episode #10 of the vlog series at the Search Engine Roundtable I interviewed Ruth Burr Reedy (@ruthburr)…
- Google Tests Bigger Search Results Fonts
Over the past week or so, I’ve received numerous tweets and notifications from the community that Google is testing much larger fonts in the search results page. Well, now I am seeing it myself in some browsers and yes, it feels much bigger.
- Google: You Can Remove Links From Your Disavow File & Those Links Count Again
Google’s John Mueller clarified on Twitter that if you remove links from your disavow file, those links will start to count again – well, if Google hasn’t discounted them other ways (i.e. Penguin or other methods). I am surprised I never outright covered this before, but I 100% mentioned it in numerous posts.
- SEO Advice: Stop Spamming Googlers With Link Requests & Lists
I get it, you automate a lot of your job – that is the efficient way to spam but try to put into your automation a blacklist. Blacklist emailing anyone at a @google.com domain, black list emailing anyone with the name John Mueller, Gary Illyes or anyone who works on search at Google or Bing – LinkedIn is a good resource for that.
- New Native Lazy-Loading Support In Chrome 76 & Evergreen GoogleBot
So now as SEOs, you need to follow all the latest changes in Chrome because whatever support Chrome adds, it is likely that GoogleBot will support it as well with the evergreen GoogleBot. Ilya Grigorik from the Google team posted that the Chrome team added native lazy loading support to Chrome 76 and that means when GoogleBot is running off of 76, which should be soon, it also will natively support it.
- A Waze Carpool Kiosk
Here is a photo of a kiosk that says Waze Carpool. I guess it is a method to use the Waze carpool feature when you do not have your own device and want to use the service?
Other Great Search Forum Threads:
- @rustybrick Also Florists and Restaurants can update/remove that nasty SinglePlatform “menu” link that was locked due to their partnership. Ref: https://t.co/3xAIF2cydA, Eric Wu on Twitter
- It’s absolutely, positively, 100% not described that way because of human intervention by Google. We handle *billions* of queries per day; 15% are entirely new. Scale, Danny Sullivan on Twitter
- Different ranking positions on different devices for Google SERPs, WebmasterWorld
- My fav email today (so far): Email: our site was heavily affected by the last core update and close to 100% of our traffic is gone. Our SEOs tried everything already Reply: have they also tried removing those noindex dire, Gary Illyes on Twitter
- What’s “RT”? But yeah, I’ve seen it more than once that people had “noindex” in the HTML and then attempted to undo it with JS. That happens mostly for SPAs, tho., Martin Splitt on Twitter
- Yes, that’s correct. That said, usually this is a non-issue: if it’s an important URL, we’ll crawl it fairly regularly. If it’s not that im, John Brown on Twitter
