This month was packed with a handful of unconfirmed Google search algorithm updates, as you will see in the bulleted list below. In fact, there may be a more subtle update going on now, which I did not write about but I am on the edge of potentially covering - it was around February 1st and 2nd. We also saw a bunch of manual actions have the backlog resolved. Also, we saw a slew of new news and discover manual actions get delivered in the past week.

Google Search Console launched a new URL inspection API and a new page experience desktop report this past month. Also, now the Search Console snapshot in the search results work for domain properties. Google released a new meta robots tag named indexifembedded.

We learned more about when Google dedups top stories in web search and we saw some new data around that. Plus we have a ton of SEO stories, link stories, user interface tests, local news and details and much more.

The ongoing WebmasterWorld thread is talking about some of the early February light fluctuations still, as I mentioned above.

You can also check out the January report if you missed that one.

Here is what you may have missed this past month:
