Google Eliminates Embedded Podcasts From Search Engine Result

Posted by

Google has actually silently removed ingrained podcasts from search engine result, which means users will no longer be able to listen to podcast episodes straight from the SERPs.

This change was first found by Podnews, who got verification from a Google spokesperson that the removal was intentional.

This change will impact the ability to listen to individual podcast episodes without leaving Google, a feature that was released in 2019.

Google will still consist of 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 site where the podcast is hosted.

The decision to eliminate ingrained podcasts from search engine result was made to offer a much better user experience, according to a Google spokesperson.

“We’re continuously try out ways to improve the experience for our users,” the spokesperson says in a statement to Podnews.

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

Although Google didn’t provide any previous notification, getting rid of embedded podcasts from search results isn’t unexpected since the Google Podcasts app hasn’t been updated for 18 months.

The relocation will likely be met with some frustration from searchers who regularly use the feature.

On the other hand, this modification could result in more individuals registering for podcasts as they will no longer have the ability to listen to them through a quick search.

Google’s choice to get rid of embedded podcasts from search engine result may be part of a larger technique to phase out the Google Podcasts product.

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

However, this does not indicate that Google is abandoning the podcast industry completely.

In 2021, a report from Bloomberg revealed that Buy YouTube Subscribers looked for to hire someone to oversee its podcasting service.

This recommends that Google is dedicated to improving the podcast experience on Buy YouTube Subscribers, and the business may not wish to contend against itself because area.

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

That stated, it makes sense why Buy YouTube Subscribers is the priority for Google for podcasts.

It’s worth noting that Buy YouTube Subscribers accomplished this level of popularity without having a specific podcast classification.

Before August, Buy YouTube Subscribers didn’t have a particular podcast classification. Users had to search for them manually.

If Google discontinues its Podcasts app, the company will likely shift its focus to Buy YouTube Subscribers. This could imply that a Buy YouTube Subscribers Podcasts app is on the horizon.
