Google Webmaster Report

Here is the big Google webmaster report for November 2023 and it is a big one. We had three confirmed updates; the November 2023 core update and a couple weeks later the October 2023 core update and also the October 2023 spam update. And there was a bug with the core update that led to Discover traffic issues for the whole month of October! Plus, we should be getting a new reviews update next week. Let's not forget all the unconfirmed Google algorithm updates we had this month.

On the AI side of things, we had Google begin testing a lite version of SGE, Google demo Google Assistant with Bard, and release a new Google-Extended directive for AI purposes. Plus, there was a lot more SGE and Bard news, as you can see below.

We have new vehicle listing structured data, a new way to test paywalled content, and new support for syntax graph merge. Google drop indented results, and even rich results are missing. Also, Google said they completed mobile-first indexing, again.

Google gave a ton of advice to recipe bloggers, maybe even a bit of a warning was dished out. Google reiterated that the HCU uses machine learning, and explained signs of unhelpful content. Plus a lot more on that topic below.

Google confirmed it is testing mixing ads with free listings. Google launched new about this image features. Google Maps is now photo-first, which is a big deal. You can edit your social profile links in Google Business Profiles.

Oh, this all leads to Google ad revenue jumping nicely this past quarter.
