It doesn't help that the folks at Google are often vague (if not completely silent) on what some of these updates include, which only further exacerbates the trust issues many of us have with Google.
For example, there's the two-part core update that rolled out in June and then at the start of this month. They wouldn't say what was included. They only said that "some parts of it" weren't ready in June, so they had to break the update up. Oh, and they also said that some folks might see increases or drops in June with the first update, and those may (or may not) reverse themselves with the July update.
Then there's the page experience update that is its own can of worms, as a story, with even Google disagreeing with itself about what impact this will have on websites, depending on who you ask.
Is Google really the "good guy" in the data privacy conversation?
Also, during the conversation, I made a mistake. I inadvertently said the new page performance report is in Google Analytics, when it is actually in Google Search Console. Sorry about that, got a little tongue-tied after almost an hour of Google product talk!
