What's Up With Google Beta Labs?
Last Update: Sep 26, 2023
Hi WA Friends!
Ever since Google released its latest Helpful Content Update, things have gotten really interesting, to say the least.
It's no secret that the helpful content update has wreaked havoc with its search results, for which many of my featured images and page one SERP results have been pushed under user-generated content and irrelevant search results to page two or three.
Now, I'm noticing a variety of really anomalous behavior in many of its Beta Labs outputs. Among these, one of the most frequent is duplicate results in its Generative Search Experience (GSE) output.
Is anyone else seeing this?
For example, in the GSE results below, Google is listing my article twice for the same keyword search result. Click on either one of them, and it takes you to the exact same article on my website!??
I realize these tools are still in beta, but they seemed to be working fine before the Helpful Content Update.
Google is obviously having some big problems sorting out the bugs in all facets of its content update, its SERPs being the most significant, of course.
AI is turning the search engine world upside down. We need to be patient and continue to be productive while Google works things out. 😎
Are you also seeing Google Beta Labs anomalies? Please comment below.
Thanks, AND ...
Rock On! 🤘
