This week I covered a possible tweak to the Google search ranking update. Google also seems to be still experiencing issues with some news publishers not ranking in search. Google said sites can still rank even if they are spamming. Google is showing fewer videos and fewer image boxes / carousels in web search. Google video carousel is testing a related videos option. Google is also testing a double top stories carousel slider. Google tests image thumbnails in the web results yet again. Google’s John Mueller dug deep into why you may see an error for discovered but currently not indexed. Google said domain name registration time is not a ranking signal. Google is testing again the sticky rounded header design. Google Ads has a Black Friday and Cyber Monday ad extension for a limited time. Google My Business Insights promised to speed up the data flow this week, but then said it won’t be coming for 3-6 months. Google launched a new design for hotel results in the web results. Google also launched a Hebrew and Hijri date conversion feature. That was this past week in search at the Search Engine Roundtable.
