Google Gets Rid Of Embedded Podcasts From Search Results

Posted by

Google has actually silently removed embedded podcasts from search results page, which implies users will no longer have the ability to listen to podcast episodes directly from the SERPs.

This change was very first identified by Podnews, who got confirmation from a Google spokesperson that the elimination was intentional.

This modification will affect the capability to listen to specific podcast episodes without leaving Google, a feature that was introduced in 2019.

Google will still include links to podcast episodes in search results, but users can not listen to them straight from the search page.

Instead, users will be directed to the website where the podcast is hosted.

The choice to get rid of embedded podcasts from search results page was made to offer a better user experience, according to a Google representative.

“We’re continuously experimenting with ways to improve the experience for our users,” the representative says in a statement to Podnews.

It’s uncertain how this enhances the user experience other than producing a leaner SERP.

Although Google didn’t give any previous notice, removing embedded podcasts from search results page isn’t unforeseen given that the Google Podcasts app hasn’t been upgraded for 18 months.

The relocation will likely be met with some disappointment from searchers who routinely use the feature.

On the other hand, this change might result in more individuals registering for podcasts as they will no longer be able to listen to them through a fast search.

Google’s decision to remove ingrained podcasts from search engine result may be part of a bigger method to phase out the Google Podcasts item.

The fact that the app hasn’t been upgraded for over a year indicates that it may be headed for the Google graveyard.

However, this doesn’t suggest that Google is deserting the podcast industry altogether.

In 2021, a report from Bloomberg exposed that Buy YouTube Subscribers sought to hire someone to manage its podcasting company.

This suggests that Google is committed to boosting the podcast experience on Buy YouTube Subscribers, and the company might not want to compete against itself in that area.

Per a 2022 study performed by Edison Research study, Buy YouTube Subscribers is the leading platform for podcast listening, followed closely by Spotify.

That said, it makes good sense why Buy YouTube Subscribers is the concern for Google for podcasts.

It’s worth keeping in mind that Buy YouTube Subscribers accomplished this level of appeal without having a specific podcast classification.

Before August, Buy YouTube Subscribers didn’t have a specific podcast classification. Users needed to search for them by hand.

If Google terminates its Podcasts app, the company will likely move its focus to Buy YouTube Subscribers. This might suggest that a Buy YouTube Subscribers Podcasts app is on the horizon.
