Hi all, we received some info from Google which may help inform this decision.

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)

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.

Hi all - confirming this issue is on the agenda for Strategic Partnerships' next meeting with Google on 3/17 - I'll keep you all posted on what I learn.
