Welcome to 2023, and with that, here is our Google webmaster report for 2023 - where we summarize the bigger Google SEO-related changes in the past month. The big items were the release of the December 2022 helpful content update and the December 2022 link spam update - those should be done soon, I think.

Google also revamped its search quality raters guidelines and added an E to E-E-A-T. Google revealed the names of some search features. Google also launched continuous scroll on desktop and the dynamic topic refinemnts in Search. Also, Google is testing a neat feature that lets you search in video.

Google is also testing content ideas in Search Console. Google also has a new status dashboard for search, it is shutting down Question Hub, Web light and Duplex.

If you missed last month, check out the December Google report.
