It’s time for the Google Webmaster’s March 2022 report, where I look back at the latest 30-day SEO-related SEO news and highlight the most important changes during this time period. This month, we had the confirmed introduction of an update to the desktop experience site, we learned about the Pirate update update, a new ranking factor when shopping, and more.
Like I said, Google said it was starting to deploy desktop version of the site experience update last month will continue to roll out until the end of this month – no need to panic about this update. Supposedly Google too strengthened the Pirate update since 2012, affecting sites with a high volume of DMCA removal requests. Google has added a new ranking factor for post-purchase search assessment of shopping experience. We also learned that MUM is barely used a lot in Google Search to date and we have had a number of unconfirmed updates to Google’s algorithm.
Google quickly processed penalties for manual actions Google News and Google Discover. Google added more messages in the Search Console they go on. And we had another data loss with the Search Console. There was also Google crawling problems it was resolved.
Google Maps is now interactive map in the local package – which is very cool. Google is giving up business leads and welcome offers from local lists. Google is testing guides for customers in searching and testing send messages in Google Shopping for traders and customers.
There’s a lot going on, but honestly, it hasn’t been an insanely busy month like we’ve had in the past. To catch up last month, take a look Google Webmaster Report February 2022.
