On Thursday, a rumor claimed to have revealed Apple Watch Series 7 pricing. The information includes purchase costs which are almost identical to Apple Watch Series 6.

According to sources, Jon Prosser, a hit-or-miss leaker, claims to have a pricelist for several Apple Watch Series 7 configurations. Apple will begin presale for the wearable on Friday. However, Apple has not yet disclosed pricing. Apple stated that the device costs $399.

Apple seems to be continuing its pricing strategy with Apple Watch Series 6. Aluminum models start at $529 for 45mm versions with cellular capabilities. The 41mm model starts at $699, while the 45mm version goes up to $749. Apple Watch Edition is available in two sizes, with a titanium chassis. It retails for $799 or $849 depending on the size. The Apple Watch Hermes isn’t included in this list.

Bundling Watches with non-standard bands will increase the price. A stainless steel model with Milanese Loop is $50 more expensive than the standard Sport Band.

Prosser presents a selection of Apple’s prices:

  • 41mm Aluminum (GPS) $399
  • 45mm Aluminum (GPS) $429
  • 41mm Aluminum (GPS + Cellular) $499
  • 45mm Aluminum (GPS + Cellular) $529

Amazon Canada presented a limited selection of what appear to be standard pairings for aluminum and stainless-steel Apple Watch Series 7 bands and cases. These combinations don’t include Apple Watch Edition, Apple Watch Hermes, or Nike configurations. They likely reflect what third-party resellers have available when orders go live tomorrow.

Google December Product Reviews Update Affects More Than English Language Sites? via @sejournal, @martinibuster

Published

on

Google’s Product Reviews update was announced to be rolling out to the English language. No mention was made as to if or when it would roll out to other languages. Mueller answered a question as to whether it is rolling out to other languages.

Google December 2021 Product Reviews Update

On December 1, 2021, Google announced on Twitter that a Product Review update would be rolling out that would focus on English language web pages.

The focus of the update was for improving the quality of reviews shown in Google search, specifically targeting review sites.

A Googler tweeted a description of the kinds of sites that would be targeted for demotion in the search rankings:

“Mainly relevant to sites that post articles reviewing products.

Think of sites like “best TVs under $200″.com.

Goal is to improve the quality and usefulness of reviews we show users.”

Google also published a blog post with more guidance on the product review update that introduced two new best practices that Google’s algorithm would be looking for.

The first best practice was a requirement of evidence that a product was actually handled and reviewed.

The second best practice was to provide links to more than one place that a user could purchase the product.

The Twitter announcement stated that it was rolling out to English language websites. The blog post did not mention what languages it was rolling out to nor did the blog post specify that the product review update was limited to the English language.

Google’s Mueller Thinking About Product Reviews Update

Product Review Update Targets More Languages?

The person asking the question was rightly under the impression that the product review update only affected English language search results.

But he asserted that he was seeing search volatility in the German language that appears to be related to Google’s December 2021 Product Review Update.

This is his question:

“I was seeing some movements in German search as well.

So I was wondering if there could also be an effect on websites in other languages by this product reviews update… because we had lots of movement and volatility in the last weeks.

…My question is, is it possible that the product reviews update affects other sites as well?”

John Mueller answered:

“I don’t know… like other languages?

My assumption was this was global and and across all languages.

But I don’t know what we announced in the blog post specifically.

But usually we try to push the engineering team to make a decision on that so that we can document it properly in the blog post.

I don’t know if that happened with the product reviews update. I don’t recall the complete blog post.

But it’s… from my point of view it seems like something that we could be doing in multiple languages and wouldn’t be tied to English.

And even if it were English initially, it feels like something that is relevant across the board, and we should try to find ways to roll that out to other languages over time as well.

So I’m not particularly surprised that you see changes in Germany.

But I also don’t know what we actually announced with regards to the locations and languages that are involved.”

Does Product Reviews Update Affect More Languages?

While the tweeted announcement specified that the product reviews update was limited to the English language the official blog post did not mention any such limitations.

Google’s John Mueller offered his opinion that the product reviews update is something that Google could do in multiple languages.

One must wonder if the tweet was meant to communicate that the update was rolling out first in English and subsequently to other languages.

It’s unclear if the product reviews update was rolled out globally to more languages. Hopefully Google will clarify this soon.
