The Past, Present and Future Of Structured Data With Google Search

Last week we reported that Google Search Console had an embarrassing bug where it was reporting pages as being indexed, when those pages were not indexed by Google Search. The good news is that the URL Inspection tool API was not impacted by this bug, Daniel Waisberg from Google confirmed.

Daniel confirmed, “It doesn’t affect the URL Inspection API.”

I asked this on Twitter:

Here is Daniel’s response on Twitter:

As a reminder, Google fixed a bug with Google Search Console that labeled pages as being indexed when they were not indexed. Google said this bug “affected many properties”. This is just a reporting bug but you will have to communicate any updates to clients if you previously shared different indexing saturation rates.

Google Product Review Updates Still Get Periodic Updates

Google Product Review Updates Still Get Periodic Updates

Just a reminder, since I am seeing this question come up often. The Google product reviews update is updated periodically, just like with core updates. Google will run them every now and then as it sees fit, so far, Google confirmed five different product review updates.

Danny Sullivan of Google said this again last week on Twitter saying “It’s still a periodic refresh situation.” He referenced his old tweet that said “At the moment, there’s a periodic refresh. Unlike with core updates, we might not always post when a refresh happens given the more limited nature of content involved here. So overall, sites should consider the advice & keep working to it (true of core updates as well!).”

As you can see, Google might not confirm all runs of the product review update.

Here are the dates for the five previous Product Reviews Updates, keep in mind, number five is still rolling out.
