Lots Of Unconfirmed Google Search Algorithm Updates



Lots Of Unconfirmed Google Search Algorithm Updates

This month was packed with a handful of unconfirmed Google search algorithm updates, as you will see in the bulleted list below. In fact, there may be a more subtle update going on now, which I did not write about but I am on the edge of potentially covering – it was around February 1st and 2nd. We also saw a bunch of manual actions have the backlog resolved. Also, we saw a slew of new news and discover manual actions get delivered in the past week.

Google Search Console launched a new URL inspection API and a new page experience desktop report this past month. Also, now the Search Console snapshot in the search results work for domain properties. Google released a new meta robots tag named indexifembedded.

We learned more about when Google dedups top stories in web search and we saw some new data around that. Plus we have a ton of SEO stories, link stories, user interface tests, local news and details and much more.

The ongoing WebmasterWorld thread is talking about some of the early February light fluctuations still, as I mentioned above.

You can also check out the January report if you missed that one.

Will Google Lens Come To Google Search Console Reporting



Search By Image & Text

As Google Lens becomes more and more popular, SEOs are asking, will we be able to see what traffic we get from Google Lens in Google Search Console? The answer is that Google Search Console currently does not support showing Google Lens traffic or data and likely won’t in the foreseeable future.

John Mueller of Google was asked about this and he said on Twitter “Regarding Search Console, my feeling is it would need to be in a separate report, and Lens is probably still too new to be in a place where it won’t change significantly. John did add that this is “something Search Console can report on in the same way for the long term.”

Here are those tweets in context:

So I really wouldn’t expect much from Google Search Console and Google Lens here anytime soon but we can keep on asking.

Oh, by the way, Google Lens is just magical.
