I apologize if it doesn’t seem smooth, I was testing a beta version of the camera software. This week in search, I get into the difference between having links on spammy sites and having unnatural links – they are two different things. Google said 404 spikes in Search Console are normal. Then we discuss how Google attempts 404s but no crawl budget is used up for it and it isn’t a bad sign if Google isn’t crawling your 404s. Google explains the difference between geotargeting and hreflang. Google said agreeing with them doesn’t make you a good SEO, do question them. Google said the Search Console and the API have the same data. Google seems like they won’t release featured snippets in Search Analytics. Google won’t also do more advanced filtering there. Google said adding videos to your pages doesn’t improve the quality of your pages. Google added a feature to see upcoming events in mobile search. Google image search on mobile has a new filters user interface. Google AdWords removed the CPC cap in enhanced CPC. Google Merchant Center has an unexpected image processing errors bug. Bing Ads will stop supporting making new standard text ads soon. Google job search feature may be powered by schema. Searchmetrics US filed chapter 11 after a patent dispute. That was this past week in search at the Search Engine Roundtable.
