Check out the summary of all of the Google Search patents awarded in 2020, with links to dive in and learn more about to each one.

Google Search Patents 2020: The Mega-Post Roundup

Hello and welcome to our great, big, mega-post round-up of Google Search patents from 2020.

Throughout the year, I spend time collecting and writing about Google Search patents that are of interest to the SEO community. I also write about the interesting ones every now and again here on Search Engine Journal.

Now that we’ve made it to 2021 (thank goodness), I wanted to share the entire 2020 collection with you.

They’re grouped to make things easier and so that if you’d like to do some research in a particular area, you can dig in.

And that’s the thing, really — nobody reads these for fun! Well, I do, but I’m strange (so the missus tells me).

It’s all about trying to learn more about various aspects of information retrieval and Google’s algorithm. I hope you find it useful.
