The yes/no summary uses natural-language modeling and comes with a carousel of sources.

Bing can now return a “Yes” or “No” answer for certain queries, the company announced Tuesday May 26, 2020. The new search feature includes the one-word answer as well as a carousel of related excerpts from various sources.

Certain queries will also trigger an option to refine the search for a more specific answer.

This feature is currently live in the U.S. and will eventually expand to more markets.

May 10, 2020 - SEO and Google News Update - April 2020 - 1. You don't need as many visitors as possible



This is a mistake that many beginners make. It's a good idea to to get many website visitors. However, you need the right visitors.

Doubling the number of visitors usually does not double your sales. You need visitors that are interested in your offers.

Better optimize for targeted keywords with fewer competitors.

Apr 6, 2020 - Top Internet and Google News Update - March 2020 - Google: No Such Thing As Two Waves Of Indexing Or Crawling



We have heard Google talk about two waves ofindexing or crawling, espesially when it comes to processing JavaScript. But now Martin Splitt from Google says there is no such thing.

He did hint that it is going away but now says there was really no such thing.

Martin said in a JavaScript SEO hangout "First things first, there's no such thing as the second wave of crawling-ish." He added that by calling it that originally, it caused some issues. He said "The wave is an oversimplification that is coming back to us with interesting implications every now and then."

Replying to @JohnMu and 3 others



Anyway, back to the original question, @visalvadayar , we don't prioritize crawling of sites in the US. Crawling internationally works fine, and the difference for search is minimal (the speed of light + network issues, essentially). Host your site where you want to host.

Google has released quite a few ranking algorithm updates during the past few weeks. Have your rankings dropped? We can guide you on how to recover your rankings.

Normal fluctuations are not the same as ranking drops


The lower search results usually fluctuate much more than the top search results. If your website is new in the top 5 results, you can expect more fluctuation than websites that have been listed in the top 5 results for a longer time.

You can also expect higher fluctuation if the keywords are related to a hot topic. If Google shows results that are marked with "two hours ago", or "one day ago" then it's likely ...
Sep 8, 2019 - Todhost September 2019 News Update - Google: sponsored content is okay as long as you use nofollow links



It’s okay to have sponsored content on your website as long as you use nofollow links in the sponsored content. Google will see the content as a part of your website then. That’s what Google’s webmaster team said on Twitter.

Hi again, Dan! That's correct. If you don't mind that this content is seen as a part of your website, then just using rel=nofollow would be suitable. If you don't want it seen as a part of your site in search, using noindex would be better than robots.txt.
