In this month's Google Webmaster report we had a lot of unconfirmed updates, specifically signs of an update around July 25th and then maybe a roll back on August 2nd, then some ranking tools going haywire. We also saw some large changes to the local ranking algorithm this month.

Google mentioned Penguin a few times this month. They also announced AMP is coming to core mobile search which may not be a good thing. Google defined impressions, clicks and positon in Search Analytics. Google also definitively said 3xx redirects don't lose PageRank and yes PageRank matters still.

In any event, the most important Google webmaster related posts are organized below. If you missed last month click here.
