Search updates straight from the source

Safe Browsing is removed from Page Experience report in GSC

Safe browsing traditionally featured as one of the seven page experience signals, along with Core Web Vitals, interstitials, mobile-friendliness, and HTTPS. Google now recognizes that safe browsing is not always within the control of site owners and clarifies it’s not used as a ranking signal.

Rich Snippets are removed from Search Appearance report in GSC

There are now enough “named” rich snippets and Google no longer needs to display the generic category. For a full list of rich snippet types that might be reported in Search Appearance, turn to this piece of documentation from Google.

Google explains CWV score discrepancies across its tools

Rick Viscomi of Google explains how we can have completely different Core Web Vitals scores across tools like Google Search Console, PageSpeed Insights, and Lighthouse.

Core Web Vitals could be more than just a tie-breaker

John Mueller answers a Reddit question about whether or not Core Web Vitals actually matter. He says CWV not just matter, but, depending on the type of content, could have more weight than other factors.
