Google Webmaster Report

Here is the December 2023 Google webmaster report for all of you. Here I recap what happened and changed with Google Search on the organic space over the past month or so. The big items, the November 2023 core and November 2023 reviews updates rolled out. Google also told us the hidden gems algorithm was live. Google Search got more personalized, new follow feature, notes and more.

The 3 pillars of Google search rankings were exposed. Google is testing a simple search version and added follower/like counts to the results. Google is testing ask a Doctor, new small business features and flight prices. Google added support for new organization markup and profile and discussion forum markup with the corresponding Search Console reports, plus learning vide reports were added to Search Console. Oh, Search Console got rid of the page experience reports, as expected and the crawl rate setting is going away.

There was just a lot this past month, so scan the story headlines below. I try hard to just include the most important and useful stories from all the stories I wrote in the past month.

If you missed last month's recap see it over here and here are the top headlines for the past month:
