Wow, it’s Friday again! Time sure goes by quickly. It’s a slow news week but here’s a breakdown of our weekly SEO news:
So we know that Google’s local pack has been a 3-pack since 2015 but Google was recently testing a five-pack. Some users caught this and you can see some screenshots below. This is rather exciting as it’s been quite some time since the local pack has been changed.
Some users caught that Google was testing placing search refinement bubbles directly in the Google suggest autocomplete. This will certainly make Google searching much more convenient.
Google Search has been testing an updated design interface for featured snippets. You can see that the featured snippet goes across the full width of the layout when it normally cuts off at the end of the search box. See below:
Google’s John Mueller posted a cryptic tweets this morning with a dark photo with the date, October 6 2021, imprinted on an object.
He seems to hint that Google is claiming that interlinked sites as a link strategy is dead.
When people asked whether backlinks are losing worth, he gave a rather cryptic response of “things were simpler then.”
It might be about Google figuring out a way to target link schemes that involve a lot of interlinked types of sites but we won’t know until more concrete information is put out
Google is testing a new icon or label attribute in the local pack for “offers”. It looks like a price tag label and has the words “offer” beside it. It also shows the offer listed by the business in its Google My Business listing.
Google is testing a vertical format for its SiteLinks for both organic search results and search ads.
Well, that’s it for this week folks! Have a great week and make sure to take care of yourselves. We’ll see you next week.
