Google Search results start showing Podcast episodes

Luckily, the latest update makes searching for podcasts easier than ever.

Earlier, Google addressed the issue stating that, top Stories in Google News would primarily show stories from Wednesday and omit many posted on Thursday.

Interestingly, Google has eliminated the need to write "podcast" in your search query.

Another tool they'll be bringing soon, this time for the podcasters themselves, is the ability to specify where they can listen to the podcasts, such as other apps or websites where you'll have to purchase or subscribe.

Google Webmasters also tweeted, "We're aware of reports of indexing issues that are impacting some sites".

Google Search indexing issue is not a new thing, and only recently, the company experienced the indexing issues. The search results would display all the podcast episodes that are relevant to a specific topic. (The publishers will have to define where they want the show to play themselves if it's a third party.) It'll also eventually drop the "podcast" search term requirement.

Listening progress and presumably, listening history will be saved from Google Search across those other services. "As podcasts become more ubiquitous, as more people try them out, there will be similar efforts to game the system, and that's something that we'll have to deal with", he says. Underneath that, a blue-colored "play" button will start the podcast playing directly in search results. Only those users who in the U.S. who are searching in English can access the feature, for the time being, and there's no estimate provided for other languages or regions.
