That's all for today for our SEO Liveblog.

Search Console notifications now tell you if your pages are trending.
Twitter user Juan González Villa posted some screenshots showing Google Search Console notifications of trending pages.
Google is now sending email notifications saying that “Your page is trending up,” along with details of the page, increase in daily clicks, and possible explanations.
John Mueller, when asked if the notifications are live for all accounts, replied:
No, it’s not for all sites, we try to show it when we have useful data.
You can view some of the screenshots in the Tweet below:
The next Google Search News Video is scheduled to be shot mid-March.
If you were wondering where the next Google Search News Video is out, John Mueller has just said that they have the shoot scheduled for mid-March.
According to the YouTube channel playlist, the videos were due to be posted every few weeks. However, since its launch in September last year, there have been just three episodes.
With the next one being filmed in mid-march, the time between episodes is getting longer.
If you need your Mueller fix, don’t worry. He does regular Webmaster Hangouts, and you can read my notes \ watch the video for the most recent Hangout here.
Webmaster Trends Analyst, John Mueller, says that it is not possible to have more than one Structured Data per URL.
We show one example where this is not the case.
Google can, and will extract price data from multiple products on a single URL and display the range of prices in the SERPs.

A couple of things to start your day
1. Google Patent shows how they classify websites for EAT
Google filed a Patent in August 2018 called “Website Representation Vector to Generate Search Results and Classify Website.”
This Patent may be related to the classification of websites that require Expertise, Authority, and Trust (EAT). Topics that typically need EAT are Your Money or Your Life (YMYL) topics, such as health and finance.
2. The volatility in the SERPs is quiet for the 5th day running.
The calm before the storm, maybe?
