πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ This week's Aleyda's SEO Take

There was more about the Google leak...

When we thought we had seen everything about the Google Search API doc leak, Dan Petrovic shared a piece earlier this week. He had also discovered and analyzed the Google search API doc, and had contacted Google to warn them about it.

​He also pointed out how (coincidentally or not) Google has been showing a very high search ranking volatility in the last few days, a trend observed by other rank trackers and SEOs.​

​

How are you moving forward with it?

From local SEO to news SEO implications, many conversations and analyses about the Google Doc leak have been published this week. I have continued to include these updates in the Google Sheet aggregation here.​

Now that we’ve had more time to review it, I’d also like to know how most have decided to proceed with the findings. For that, I would appreciate it if you could answer the poll below:

I'll be publishing the results with additional insights in the next SEOFOMO, as well as in LinkedIn and X!
