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

Google said we can expect changes to third-party hosted content showing in search. Google Search won't explain how it uses user interactions for search. Google Discover products now shows prices and discounts. Google products section has discussions and forums. And Microsoft Advertising now sends violation notice alerts sooner.

Other Great Search Threads:

  • "My understanding is you didn't understand anything about Topical Authority & Knowledge Graph", Red
  • Appreciate the question. When the integration is ready, we'll have clear documentation for full transparency. We'll always disclose how data is used for reporting (e.g. only register what is needed for YouTube EVCs), AdsLiaison on X
  • I don't know, we went back and forth on this... Safari on iOS moved to the bottom, but many people actually prefer the top location, Mikhail Parakhin on X
  • That page is blocked to us via robots.txt, which is why it has that "No information is available" message. That's a good thing in terms of our guidance about hosting third-party content: https://t.co, Google SearchLiaison on X
