I've received emails from from Google Search Console informing me that my version of WordPress is either version 4.7 or 4.7.1 and I should upgrade.

However, I have WordPress 4.7.2 installed on all of the sites that Google Search Consoled emailed me about.

Is there any way for me to determine why Google Search Console thinks I have an older version of WordPress than is actually installed?


Google Search Console is not real-time and some features update faster than others. If you have upgraded your site then there's nothing more to worry about, its just that Google Console is using outdated data and will refresh on the next update or two.
