Daily Search Forum Recap: September 5, 2022

Here is a recap of what happened in the search forums today, through the eyes of the Search Engine Roundtable and other search forums on the web.

For Labor Day, I tried to keep it slower on the blog today… Only 20% of SEOs noticed ranking changes related to the Google helpful content update, thus far. Google Analytics made privacy changes to the Google Ads search queries report that you won’t like. Google Ads will disapprove ads that do not meet the Better Ads standards starting in October. We have a Labor Day Doodle post.

  • Poll: Only 20% Noticed Ranking Changes After Google’s Helpful Content Update

A recent poll by Aleyda Solis confirmed that, showing that only 20% of SEOs noticed ranking changes, either positive or negative, since the update.
  • Google Ads To Disapprove Ads That Don’t Meet Better Ads Standards
