This is our monthly report on changes that took place at Google over the past 30-days or so. You can see our June 2010 report and see it was all about the May Day update and possible signs of Caffeine being live. Well, now Caffeine is live, which may be the reason for so many things going on this month, as opposed to the previous months.
This report is typically based off the monthly WebmasterWorld thread, but this thread is pretty stale for now. Why? Possibly because of the July 4th weekend. In any event, there was a ton of discussion at WebmasterWorld about things going on, so here is our recap of important topics covered on Google in the past month.
