Nicholas_Perry added a comment to T326829: [Spike] Make languages available to index crawlers in mobile version of article pages.

Hey @larissagaulia, chiming in on the SEO portion of your question. The Google team flagged this as a major issue because as it stands now users' language preferences are being overridden and they're often being served content in the largest local language Wikipedia instead of their preferred language (e.g. Spanish instead of Catalan).

Nicholas_Perry added a comment to T298166: Work out a strategy on Yandex's Turbo Pages.

Hi all, I reached out to Yandex's search team last week to opt-out of their Turbo Pages experience, and they've confirmed they have stopped using Turbo Pages for Wikipedia on their search result pages. They said that "all other instances" of Turbo Pages being used for Wikipedia will be turned off in the near future, and their team is working on making that happen.

Nicholas_Perry added a comment to T294400: Bing no longer returns Wikivoyage in its search results(also effecting DDG, Yahoo, etc).

@Aklapper I reached out to Bing the other day, they looked into it and said they can't recreate the problem. Do you know if the search results seem to be back to normal? The link to recreate the issue is now displaying Wikivoyage results for me unlike before.

Interesting - looks like it's being pulled in from Commons (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Wikimedia_movement_affiliates.svg)

Nicholas_Perry added a comment to T222467: Google still shows old logo for Wikimedia Foundation.

Hey everyone - thanks for your patience while I got some clarity from Google! The latest update from them is that the old logo has been successfully removed so currently no logo is being populated. Replacing it with the new one is something that is done algorithmically opposed to manually on their end. They're expecting this to happen within the next few days, so it's a half-win for now until that happens but we should be in the clear here as far as our old logo showing up goes.
