Google releases hundreds of updates every year. Any change in Google algorithms can affect your site’s position in search results - even a tiny one.
Magento 2 is heavily integrated with the Elasticsearch engine. It uses Elasticsearch for search, for catalog lists, for layered navigation. Every product or category is stored as an Elasticsearch document.
Magento 2.4 has completely switched from using MySQL as its main search or listing engine to Elasticsearch.
Elasticsearch is used for searching, and also listing of any product or products in the store. When a customer opens a category page, he receives results filtered and sorted out by Elasticsearch, making Elasticsearch a necessary service in running the latest Magento store. Without its service, Magento will not be able to display products on the category page.
