This week in search I covered how this morning Google’s removed Search Engine Land from their index this morning by accident. Google started showing zero search results again and it looks like it will stick. Google may have done a big algorithm update on Thanksgiving day. Google said if you build a good site that is so good where if Google doesn’t rank it, it looks bad on Google then that is a good thing. Google said they confirm core algorithm updates when the non SEOs are confused. I just wish Google would stop using the line that they do hundreds or thousands of updates per day. Google is testing dropping the knowledge panel form the search results. Google is testing expandable related queries. Google is testing a video filer in the featured snippets. Google is testing a new image search design for image previews. Google is also testing an image carousel in the featured snippets. Google is going to sunset some of the reports in the old Google Search Console. Google Search Console updated their index coverage report to use mobile-first indexing data. Google wants beta testers for the Search Performance report. Google posted an FAQs on AMP indexing issues. Google is not yet done moving sites to mobile-first indexing. Google My Business explained what branded searches are. Google released version 4.3 of the Google My Business API. Speakable markup is now supposed by the Google Home Hub. Google AdSense payments are very delayed for some publishers and creators. Bing’s search spam fighter got a reality check. Dixon Jones won the Lifetime Achievement award and Kevin Gibbons won the UK Search Personality of the Year award last night. That was this past week in search from the Search Engine Roundtable.
