This Week in Search: Exciting New Limits and Features
This week’s This Week In Search series examines the top SEO and SEM news stories from the previous week. Twitter pushes its boundaries, Bing introduces new features, Google proves its popularity with yet another milestone reached in total mobile device searches worldwide (wow! ), and Facebook allows users to mute people or pages they don’t want following their every move online—giving users more control when they log onto those social media sites as well as peace of mind knowing
Twitter Experiments with a New 280-Character Limit
Twitter is expanding its user base’s ability to express themselves on the social media platform. The existing 140-character restriction has become too restrictive for people who use Twitter to communicate with friends and family, therefore they are increasing it by 20%. This gets us up to a character count that originally topped out at 160 characters before disappearing into history—a bothersome constraint imposed during a time when texting with short messages was widespread among many demographics worldwide (including those without modern cell phones). Nowadays, we’re all more linked than ever before; some like to keep their thoughts brief, while others prefer to elaborate.
Bing Ads Introduces New Ad Extension Editor Features
Editors can choose when their ad extensions appear in Bing Editor, and they can arrange them by date or day. The additional features will aid in improving relevance for a more effective campaign run—a fantastic addition!
Another upgrade from Microsoft’s advertisements network (Bing) this week introduced two additional sophisticated capabilities that provide editors even more freedom with how frequently specific sorts of ads appear on different platforms such as Facebook or Instagram Stories. For example, if you only want videos promoting your latest product release during prime time hours, there is no need to render one specific extended slot per platform because all related items can now appear together instead, which makes perfect sense given that many people use multiple social networks. s
The new Ad Extensions menu streamlines the process of creating and connecting libraries of ad extensions for advertisers, saving time in the process.
Google is now Apple’s iOS and Mac search provider.
Bing has been replaced by Google in Apple’s Siri, and it is being phased out of iOS and Spotlight search for macOS. This change was designed to provide a consistent online experience across all three platforms: desktop computers running OS X or Windows; smartphones powered by the iPhone 4S’s 64 bit chip architecture (iOS); and iPads with Retina Display graphics cards, which have become known simply as “Spotlight.” Bing, on the other hand, will continue to provide image-based results through their own personal assistant programme named “Bing Vision.”
Facebook Launches a New Mute Feature for Friends and Pages
A much-needed ‘Snooze’ button is being tested by Facebook users in the United States, and if successful, it might be made available globally. For those occasions when you need some personal space but don’t want them completely off your mind, the Snooze option may be found on a drop down menu next to people’s names or sites. With this new option available through their mobile app, regardless of where they are, there will always be a simple route back into reconnecting with someone, whether it is after 24 hours (muted), 7 days (snoozed), or 30 days (disabled).
To combat fake news, Bing has included a ‘Fact Check’ label.
Bing has released a new ‘truth check’ sticker, which can be added to news and normal web sites. When this identity is attached, it alerts search engine users that they are accessing accurate information; however, websites that do not match specified standards may suffer penalties.
The following conditions must be met in order for Bing’s “Fact-Checked” label (which appears when you click it) or ClaimReview Markup tag to appear:
1. The URL of the website must be free of spelling problems. On the first page load, the phrase “Fact checked” appears next to the title. 3 All Disclaimers and Legal Notices are hyperlinked. There were four administrator account settings and written instructions for managing site compliance. 5 There is no internal linking; only external links exist.
