Google Reduces Visibility Of Business Edits With Color Changes

Google has recently changed how it shows what edits or updates were made to a Google Business Profile listing in Google Search and Google Maps. Prior, Google four different types of colored label notifications for edits, now it only has two.

It now only shows data replaced by Google in blue and no updates from Google in black or white.

Previously, Google showed four types, with orange for new data from Google, orange with a strikethrough for data removed by Google, gray with a strike through for data replaced by Google and black or white for no updates from Google.

Google can update profiles at any time. Google-updated info shows live on Maps, Search, and other Google services. You can choose to accept, discard and replace, or edit Google updates. Different types of updates show in different text colors in the profile editor.

Here is what it reads now:

So clearly Google is showing less categories of edits, which is less visibility into the edits Google is making? With Google AI being able to edit you business listings, shouldn’t we expect more visibility?

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.

Note: This was pre-written and scheduled to be posted today, I am currently offline for Rosh Hashanah.
