We had a nice number of unconfirmed Google search ranking updates this past month including one on March 1st, February 27th, February 22nd, February 18th, February 13th and on February 7th - yea, a busy month for fluctuations in the Google search results.

Google Search Console was busy with update too. They announced they are consolidating data for their performance reports going forward. They also announced the launch of domain properties which is replacing property sets since it is going away later this month. Google also added product reports and a new email alert report for traffic changes.

Did you now that Google adjust ranking weights for query type? They can detect YMYL types of queries and adjust. But no, Google said again they don't use CTR for ranking signals. Oh, and let's not forget about the renewed featured snippets debate on stolen content with the new found on the web Google feature.

The ongoing WebmasterWorld chatter is still mostly about ranking changes.

It was a busy month, here are the more important Google webmaster related stories from this past month and if you missed the February report get it there.
