itunes-subscribe-video.pngBusy week in search at the Search Engine Roundtable. First I discuss a possible Google update that hit ground a few days ago. then I go into how AdWords lets you tie your Webmaster Tools account together and build a paid and organic report into one. Google's Matt Cutts told us why example links maybe not be in Webmaster Tools links. Google is testing a new preview search result feature. Google posted a detailed FAQ on using authorship. Google's Matt Cutts said +1s don't improve rankings and page speed is not more important of mobile rankings, yet. I ask, would you prefer a manual penalty over an algorithmic penalty? Google implied they may make penalty notifications even easier. Google shows you how long, in milliseconds, it takes GoogleBot to download your page. Google Now lets you track your kids, spouse and coworkers. Google AdWords added chart smoothing aggregation. Google AdSense added new ad format blocking. Google Places is auto-upgrading some place listings to Google+ pages. Google Maps added waze traffic data. Finally, Google had a nice relaxing Google Doodle for Claude Debussy. That was this week in search at the Search Engine Roundtable.
