Happy Holidays and Christmas to everyone who celebrates! This week I reported on Google while doing search and explained why the core update for Google won't be rolled back in December 2020. Google's John Mueller also said that certain parts of your website can be ignored for quality assessment. Google explains why parts of your site may go up and others down after an algorithm update. According to Google, the indexing of passages is currently not active. Google said that core updates and BERT have nothing to do with each other. Google brought back the requirement indexing tools after 69 days of being offline. According to Google, not all search algorithms are suitable for machine learning. Valentin shared some data on how long Google Discover stories are displayed. Microsoft Advertising has launched a new health status dashboard. The Google local panel now displays ads for lawyers. Google Guaranteed offers discounts. Google Local now networks web results in the local search results area. Google search shows streamed 3D content for cars. Google may test the ad label under the title, which makes it difficult to see. Google tests square and multi-colored buttons or tabs. Google is testing people who are also looking in a new place. Google is also showing a new popular slider for product reviews. I hope you all have a wonderful vacation, be safe and look forward to an incredible 2021!
