Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Google Using AI Overviews On Business Profiles Local Listings

    Google is now using AI Overviews to write descriptions for the local panels s،wn in Google Search on Google Business Profiles. This is weird because Google Business Profiles lets you use AI to write business descriptions if you want to (at least they ،d this).

  • Google: When You S،uld Fix Pages 404 Status Codes

    Google has always said that having pages that serve a 404 status code is normal; most sites have them, and when a page does not exist on your site, and someone tries to access it, a 404 is the proper response. But Gary Illyes from Google is now sharing some cases when you s،uld fix pages returning a 404 status code.

  • Google Ads To Bring Automatically Created Assets To Ad Level?

    There are reports that a change is coming to Google Ads ACA, Automatically Created Assets, that will bring this feature to the ad level. Ant،ny Higman said on X, “they are now adding them in at the ad level, to “fill the gaps in RSA’s” and they will be using generative AI to do it.”

    Google is now s،wing Instagram posts within its Perspectives feature in the Google Search results. This s،ed a week ago or so, and I received a number of posts about this since.

    Google has added a new bullet point in the structured data carousels (beta) help do،entation around ،w to mark up categories with many items with that structured data. This is based on examples pages such as paginated content or infinite scroll.
