Bing confirmed there was a bug with the URL submission tool because of a back log, but it is fixed. Google cache bug with the mobile-first indexing has been fixed. Bing is getting transparent on how they crawl the web. Bing is going to invest in Bing Webmaster Tools. Google fixed over 50 bugs in Google Search Console. Google is now sending out slow loading page notices to webmasters. Google link penalties can remove rich results from the search results. Google isn’t planning on supporting regional hreflang. Google said absolute URLs are safer for canonical tags. Google said IP addresses do not matter for backlinks. Google caches JavaScript and CSS files, so make sure your fresh content isn’t in there. Google local pack now adds book and schedule buttons. Google My Business cards are now in Google Maps. Google My Business has a migration tool. Google My Business is testing a way to add products to you local listings. Google Lens is now in Google Image search. Google asks SEOs how would they define themselves to developers.
