Google Tests Showing Web Pages in YouTube Search Results - Search Engine Journal

Posted: 31 May 2020 11:51 AM PDT

Google has been spotted showing links to web pages when people search for topics on YouTube.

This was initially discovered by a Reddit user who posted the following screenshot.

Google Tests Showing Web Pages in YouTube Search Results

In the example above you can see how a single web page result breaks up a search results page which is otherwise full of videos.

Users can either visit the page YouTube is displaying, or click a link to conduct a search directly on Google.

There's no indication that the website result is sponsored, which means Google is taking it upon itself to do this to assist users.

However, if comments in the r/Google subreddit are any indication, this feature will not be well received.

Here are some examples of what people think about web search results on YouTube:

"That's really annoying. If I want a google search, I'd go to google. They should not treat users like tech illiterate people."

"That's just bad. Who would want such a feature? I hope it's optional."

"That would just ruin the YouTube experience. Haven't they done enough with moving the comments."

"If it only comes up when there are not many results, it's okay I guess. But if I search something with millions of results I wanna scroll down infinitely :D"

Maybe This Feature Can Be Helpful?

For the sake of hearing from people on both sides, here are some arguments for why the feature might not be as bad as people are saying.

"I don't know man, sometimes I'm looking for a tutorial but I want a video explaining it, and if it doesn't exists now I have the option to do a quick Google search in the app."

"The problem is when I need an answer to a question, and I don't want to watch someone's 7 minutes of filler before they answer it, and then ask us to like and subscribe in every way possible for 3 minutes."

"I might like this. I often do a back to back search like that."

Admittedly, there are more people advocating against the feature than for it, but there are some valid arguments on both sides.

It's not known how widely rolled out this test is. The Reddit user who published the screenshot spotted the test in the YouTube app for Android.

For what it's worth, I conduct a lot of searches on YouTube across my iPhone and MacBook and have yet to run into this particular test.

Clearly some people are running into it though, and Google may ramp up its testing as time goes on.

Google is Currently Experience Indexing Problems - Search Engine Journal

Posted: 02 Jun 2020 01:11 PM PDT

Google confirms it is currently experiencing issues with its search results index.

Google is Currently Experience Indexing Problems

Google published a PSA advising site owners that it is currently experiencing indexing issues which may cause stale search results.

The extent of the issue is not known at this time. The exact issue is also unknown, as "stale search results" is rather vague.

Google has had indexing issues in the recent past which always involved either one of two things happening.

New content was either not being indexed, or previously indexed content fell out of Google's index.

Presumably this issue involves new content not being indexed, which would account for Google warning people about stale search results.

However, it doesn't look like that's the case this time. An easy way to check is to perform a "site:" search for your domain, click on Tools, and then set the filter to "past hour" or "past 24 hours."

Google is Currently Experience Indexing Problems

That's the best way to check if your recent content is being indexed. I checked a handful of different sites and it appears all of their recent content is being indexed as well.

Based on my extremely limited testing, it doesn't seem like this issue is preventing new content from being indexed. At least not on a large scale.

We won't know for sure until Google provides more information. At this time it's hard to tell what the problem is, but this post will be updated when we learn more.

This is a developing story…

Google Adds Anxiety Disorder Self-Assessment To Search - We are Social Media

Posted: 02 Jun 2020 04:22 PM PDT

Google has partnered with the National Alliance on Mental Illness to bring a clinically-validated questionnaire for anxiety self-assessment to search.

Anxiety disorders currently affect over 48 million adults in the United States and can have a wide range of symptoms. They can also be a result of biological factors or can be triggered by a change in environment or exposure to a stressful event. COVID-19 brought with it new sources of stress and, as a result, many communities are seeing an increase in mental health issues.

In fact, new Census Bureau data actually shows that one-third of Americans are showing signs of clinical anxiety or depression. To help the situation, Google is partnering with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) to provide people access to mental health resources.

As of this week, when people in the United States search for information on anxiety, they will see a clinically-validated questionnaire called the GAD-7 (Generalized Anxiety Disorder-7) appear in the "knowledge panel," the information box on the right of your Google search that shows key facts on whatever you searched for. It will also provide medically-validated information about anxiety, such as symptoms and common treatments.

The seven-question anxiety self-assessment survey helps people understand how their self-reported anxiety symptoms map to anxiety levels of others who have completed it, as well as provide access to resources developed by NAMI so people can find out more and get help when needed.

It has many of the same questions that any health professional would ask, and you can rest assured that answers are private and secure, as Google will not collect or share answers or results.

This is the third mental health screener that Google has made available in Search. The first two related to information on depression and PTSD, allowing people to access relevant clinically-validated questionnaires providing more information and links to resources about the conditions.

Self-assessments are only available in the United States for the time being, but Google should bring them to more countries soon.

"Anxiety can show up as a wide range of physical and emotional symptoms, and it can take decades for people who first experience symptoms to get treatment," explains Daniel H. Gillison, Jr., CEO of The National Alliance on Mental Illness. "By providing access to authoritative information, and the resources and tools to learn more about anxiety, we hope to empower more people to take action and seek help."
