We have already written our Google November report but when I see a spike in conversation about Google Search changes, I try to keep you informed, even if it is not a new month.

So as you know, we covered the Google November changes and we saw a scary change at Google that was a mistake. That being said, here is what seems to be new at Google.

  • Some are noticing the universal search yo-yo effect or at least symptoms of that issue.
  • Some are saying Google is now giving more weight to the meta description and H2 tags on your page.
  • The site command, as some report, is showing higher number of pages then they have in the past - this comes after a recent report of pages dropping out of Google but some are reporting the exact opposite.
  • Some are noticing new reports of Google cache cross-ups.
  • Others are noticing an increase in 404 errors in webmaster tools.

Those are some of the non-validated discussions going on about Google in mid-November.

There is also a new, pretty well-organized, thread on these changes at HighRankings Forums.

Forum discussion at HighRankings Forums and continued at webmasterWorld.
