Google SGE s،uld not trigger for navigational queries. Google Ads is testing AI for advertiser support. Google says the best way to block traffic from search is to disable DNS resolution. Google says if you are using AI to write content, that content will just be rehashed from other content on the web. Google Merchant Center has a new virtual model link attribute.

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Google: If You’re Using AI To Write Your Content, It’s Going To Be Rehashed From Other Sites

    Google’s John Mueller had a nice one-liner on Reddit a،n, this one he said “By definition (I’m simplifying), if you’re using AI to write your content, it’s going to be rehashed from other sites.”
  • Google Ads Beta AI Generated Help Guide

  • New Google Merchant Center 3D Model Link [virtual_model_link] Attribute

    Google has a new 3D model link [virtual_model_link] attribute, or at least new do،entation on the 3D model link [virtual_model_link] attribute. This lets you provide 3D and/or AR models of your ،ucts for Google to display in search.

But John Mueller of Google said on Twitter, “The best way to block the traffic from search for specific URLs completely is to disable DNS resolution for the URLs.”
