Daily Search Forum Recap: February 23, 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.

Google has started to roll out the desktop version of the Google Page Experience Update – big whoop. Google Merchant Center has a new “shopping experience scorecard” and if you prove that you provide excellent customer experience, Google may give you a boost and more visibility in Google Shopping. Most advertisers said that Google Ads CPCs costs are up this year compared to last. Google AdSense publisher reports seem off, the homepage report is showing much lower earnings than the other reports. Microsoft Advertising launched dynamic descriptions ad texts for DSAs.
