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:
- Search Buzz Video Recap: Google EAT Scores, Content Accuracy, Bing Content Submission API & Much More
Another busy week, I start it off with the monthly Google webmaster report. Google said there is no such thing as an EAT score. Google said you cannot rent experts or specialists to improve your EAT…
- Bing Tests Content Submission API Removing Crawling Requirement
Bing announced a pilot, a really early test, for a content submission API. The content submission API takes it a step further than Bing’s efforts to have you just submit URLs for crawling and indexing. Instead, this is you feeding Bing not just your URL but also all of its content, HTML, images, etc – so Bing does not need to crawl the page at all.
- Google: We Do Not Have An EAT Score
Google’s Gary Illyes cleared up one thing that SEOs have been possibly confused about for some time. There is not single score for EAT. There is not EAT score. EAT is not a real thing at Google. EAT is made up of many many algorithms, baby algorithms, that are made up of in the Google core algorithm.
- Google: Some But Not All Algorithms May Trigger Spikes In Crawl Rates
Gary Illyes from Google said yesterday that some baby algorithms may trigger a spike in crawl rates. He said some, not all, of these algorithms may do that. Now, in 2016, John Mueller said algorithm updates do not trigger crawl rate spikes or changes.
- New Term: Google Baby Algorithms
Gary Illyes from Google threw out a term, he made up, Google does not use it internally I think he said, called “baby algorithms.” His point with the term is that when SEOs say EAT, there is no EAT algorithm. But rather there are many algorithms, call them baby algorithms, that look at many signals that may interpret parts of EAT.
- Google: Content Accuracy Is A Ranking Factor
Gary Illyes from Google said on stage at PubCon that he would consider content accuracy a ranking factor. He said because of YMYL, he would consider the accuracy of content a ranking factor. This comes a month after Danny Sullivan from Google said Google cannot determine the accuracy of content.
- Google Smocks In NYC Office
I guess some Googlers like to get dirty either painting or building things, because Google has several smocks hanging in one of its offices spaces in the NYC offices.
