Google has quietly eliminated embedded podcasts from search results, which indicates users will no longer be able to listen to podcast episodes straight from the SERPs.
This modification was first identified by Podnews, who received confirmation from a Google representative that the elimination was deliberate.
This change will affect the ability to listen to private podcast episodes without leaving Google, a function that was launched 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 eliminate embedded podcasts from search results was made to provide a much better user experience, according to a Google representative.
“We’re constantly try out methods to improve the experience for our users,” the spokesperson states in a declaration to Podnews.
It’s uncertain how this enhances the user experience aside from creating a leaner SERP.
Although Google didn’t provide any prior notification, removing embedded podcasts from search engine result isn’t unexpected since the Google Podcasts app hasn’t been updated for 18 months.
The move will likely be met some dissatisfaction from searchers who consistently use the feature.
On the other hand, this modification could result in more people signing up for podcasts as they will no longer be able to listen to them through a fast search.
Google’s decision to get rid of ingrained podcasts from search results might be part of a bigger technique to phase out the Google Podcasts item.
The fact that the app hasn’t been updated for over a year indicates that it may be headed for the Google graveyard.
However, this does not suggest that Google is deserting the podcast industry completely.
In 2021, a report from Bloomberg exposed that Buy YouTube Subscribers sought to employ somebody to manage its podcasting service.
This recommends that Google is dedicated to boosting the podcast experience on Buy YouTube Subscribers, and the business may not want to contend versus itself in that location.
Per a 2022 research study performed by Edison Research, Buy YouTube Subscribers is the leading platform for podcast listening, followed carefully by Spotify.
That stated, it makes good sense why Buy YouTube Subscribers is the concern for Google for podcasts.
It deserves keeping in mind that Buy YouTube Subscribers attained this level of appeal without having a specific podcast classification.
Prior To 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 shift its focus to Buy YouTube Subscribers. This could indicate that a Buy YouTube Subscribers Podcasts app is on the horizon.
