On December 28, 2021, Google updated the rich results report for product structured data in Google Search Console. The reporting update may result in a change in the number of issues, errors and warnings that you get on and after December 28th in that report.
Google posted this update in the data anomalies page saying “Search Console has changed the way that it evaluates and reports errors in Product structured data. As a result, you may see changes in the number of Product entities and issues reported for your property, as well as a change in severity of some issues from errors to warnings.”
So if you use product structured data, go check that rich results report. There may be new issues and errors that you probably want to address in your next sprint or two.

Daily Search Forum Recap: November 30, 2022
Here is a recap of what happened in the search forums today, through the eyes of the Search Engine Roundtable and other search forums on the web.
Google says again, but more strongly, that links are much less important to the overall Google Search ranking algorithm than it once was. Google said they have algorithms to detect and demote AI-generated plagiarized content. Google does not crawl or index shorter, more niche content faster or better. Google said a page’s content does not need to be indexed for the URL to be in the index. Google said HTTP/3 wouldn’t help you rank better in Google.
