When indexing was experiencing problems, Top Stories in Google News would primarily show stories from Wednesday and omit many posted on Thursday. Search Engine Land first reported on the issues.

Google is constantly crawling, or indexing, the web to find new content to show users when they search on a topic. When there are indexing problems, search results won’t be as up-to-the-moment as users expect.

The search giant first confirmed on Thursday that it was seeing reports of indexing issues. Google also said on Thursday morning that it fixed issues with a tool website owners can use to manually check if a URL has been indexed. The company has experienced a number of indexing issues recently, with some lasting for a week in April and over three days in May.

Google will highlight important parts of videos in search results.
Web searches can easily help you find videos, but that's not much good if you're looking for a specific segment. Do you really want to spend minutes scrubbing to find a relevant section? You might not have to. Google search can now highlight specific moments in a video based on timestamps supplied by creators. You can jump directly to the fifth step in a how-to guide, or jump to a favorite song in a concert. The video indexing will initially be available only for English searches involving YouTube videos. Google is, however, encouraging producers to add the timestamps. Google isn't just relying on timestamps in video descriptions.
