Expedia was the first major website to begin showing emojis in their title tags, however it didn’t catch on too much with Google announcing that they would be removed from the search results shortly after.
Here are two search listings in Google that previously showed emojis.
They have only been removed in titles it seems – the promotion by Norwegian Airlines earlier this month that showed emojis in the URL in Google is still working. It isn’t known if Google plans to remove this from their search results in the future.
However, if you are still attached to the idea of emojis in the search results, they are still alive and well in the Bing search results. While Bing didn’t initially show emojis in their own search results, they began showing them about a week after they were noticed in Google’s search results. So it wouldn’t be surprising to see Bing follow Google’s move and remove them from their search results in the future.
