By George Nguyen from SERMRush
  • “Google’s reporting tool for indexing bugs is now available to all signed-in Search Console users worldwide (although it can only process reports filed in English), the company announced on Monday.”
  • “It is designed for those who need further support with indexing issues outside of the Google community forums and support documentation.”
  • “Now that this tool is out of the pilot program, SEOs and site owners in the U.S. have a way to escalate these indexing issues, which should help them get closer to resolving them.”

China proposes strict control of algorithms

By Manish Singh from Tech Crunch
  • “In a 30-point draft guideline published on Friday, the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) proposed forbidding companies from deploying algorithms that ‘encourage addiction or high consumption’ and endanger national security or disrupt the public order.”
  • “The watchdog said it will be taking public feedback on the new guidelines for a month (until September 26).”
  • “Friday’s guidelines appear to target ByteDance, Alibaba Group, Tencent and Didi and other companies whose services are built on top of proprietary algorithms.”
