Last weekend we had another unconfirmed update from Google Search. While we wait for the core update to be released. Google updated their FAQ on key web vital and page experience update, including the fact that it is likely a light tiebreaker signal and that top stories don't have to be the core web vital metrics to be included. Google said that the clips markup for key moments is disappearing and that those key moments will be processed automatically. According to Google, ecommerce websites that sell medical products must have an EAT level as it is more critical for these websites as it is for other medical and health sites. Automatically adding websites to Google News is a mistake and keeps new publishers in the dark. Microsoft Bing wants WordPress to integrate the automatic submission of URLs to its own and the search engines into its core. Microsoft will be releasing more details about its API for submitting content for Bing in the coming months. Competitors can be displayed in Google's knowledge panels, which is scary. Google may delete the local package from three to two entries. Google My Business has started sending suspension notifications via email. Google has a new label for reviews to highlight which reviews are new. Google Maps has released a number of updates, including new roadside pickup and delivery features. Microsoft Advertising has new ads for dealerships and manufacturers. Microsoft Advertising has also automated the ad suggestions that it automatically applies. This means that these suggestions can go live without your express permission. Rand Fishkin updated his zero-click study. Now it's up to Google to share something essential. Finally, Google had a fun Easter egg for the Ever Given ship, which was freed from the Suez Canal. Oh, and if you'd like to help sponsor these vlogs, go to patreon.com/barryschwartz.
