Recently I logged into Google Search Console and I saw an Infrastructure Update at the top of the Site Error page. The message indicates that a Search Console update may cause “a change in data”. Read on to understand how many SEO experts are analyzing possible data anomalies…
Here is the Search Console update message on the Site Errors page:
Google provided a link to the Data Anomalies page (https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/6211453) and after searching under the “Crawl Errors/Crawl Status Report each I noticed there were NOT any updates reported for January 22, 2017.
A search for “google infrastructure update” led me to this post from the people at SEO Round Table. It looks like they came to the same conclusion: no updates reported for January 22, 2017.
What does it all mean?
At this time, all we can do is speculate, but just know that there could be some changes coming to Google Search Console in the near future. Changes for the better? We will have to wait and see.
