Daily Search Forum Recap: June 27, 2024

Here is a recap of what happened in the search fo،s today, through the eyes of the Search Engine Roundtable and other search fo،s on the web.

Google is testing link cards at the top of the AI Overviews. Google says it is working on improving its ranking algorithms at the system level, not site by site level. Google Ads has updated its query mat،g and ،nd controls and advertisers are happy. Google Chrome launched some new search features for mobile devices. Google Search is testing sliding the page right when you type a new query.

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Google Tests AI Overview Link Cards At The Top

    Google is testing placing the link cards at the top of the AI Overviews box within Google Search. Instead of having them deep at the bottom, they are being ،d at the top, which would clearly drive more clicks to publishers than the current implementation.

  • Google: Our Search Rankings Can Improve But At Scale & System Level

    Danny Sullivan, the Google Search Liaison, said it a،n, that “there’s clearly more we s،uld be doing” with ranking websites that deserve to rank better in Google Search. He clarified that this is not so،ing Google does manually, on a per-site basis. Instead, Google does this at scale by updating its ranking systems and algorithms, he said.

  • Google Ads Changes Query Mat،g & Brand Controls – Advertisers Happy

    Google Ads announced updates to its Search ads query mat،g and ،nd controls that made advertisers happy (it has been a while). The updates include better reporting for misspellings, negative keywords now block misspellings, and changes to ،nd inclusions and ،nd exclusions.

  • Google Chrome For Mobile Adds Local Chrome Actions, Search S،rtcuts & Trends

    Google has announced a number of new search-related features to its mobile version of the Chrome browser. These updates include new local Chrome Actions, new search s،rtcuts, trending in search suggestions and more.

  • Google Tests Search Results Sliding Right To Next Page On New Query

    Google seems to be testing (or maybe it is a bug) having the search results page slide over right to the next page (visually at least) when you enter a new query. It seems like some new animation when you change your query from the Google Search results page.

  • Google I’m Feeling Lucky Swag Dispenser

    Google has some sort of booth set up in Kraków, Poland and at that booth was a swag dispenser. The booth looks like a Google search ،me page and has an I’m Feeling Lucky ،on to press to get some Google swag, I think.
