Case Study: How a publisher broke into Google Discover in less than 30 days from launchsearchengineland.com
A case study that looks at some of the reasons why this site was able to get Google Discover in less than 30 days from launch.
Google has come out swinging against a law proposed by the Canadian government that would force the search engine to pay publishers for listing content.
Canada’s proposed Online News Act would compel tech companies to negotiate deals with news organizations for content that appears on their platforms. It’s modelled after legislation introduced in Australia last year. Should the bill get passed and made into law, it could encourage more countries to take a similar approach.
Google claims a link tax would “break” search results for everyone.
Technically, a publisher peddling conspiracy theories about current events could be eligible for compensation if they employ at least two writers from Canada.
On top of that, Google wouldn’t be able to downrank those publishers in Canadian search results. The Online News Act stipulates publishers receiving payment from Google can neither be penalized or receive preferential treatment.

Google now supports Education Q&A structured data as Google rich results in Google Search. Well now some folks who have implemented it are seeing Education Q&A show up in the search performance reports in Google Search Console.
At Google I/O last week, Google’s Annie Sullivan and Michal Mocny introduced a new metric named INP or Interaction to Next Paint. INP measures overall responsiveness to user interactions on the page and it may or may not replace FID, First Input Delay, as a Core Web Vitals metric.
To be clear, nothing has changed yet with Core Web Vitals and INP is very much in the experimental phase. But there is a chance that INP will be added to Core Web Vital and / or replace FID in Core Web Vitals.
