It was a busy month with lots of nuggets, the biggest news was Google's beginning of their mobile first index. We also saw an unconfirmed Google update on November 10th and maybe a reversal a week later. Google updated their featured snippets algorithm and potentially their top stories algorithm as well.

We had tons of Google Search Console changes, see the list below. We had also a ton of SEO tidbits we covered, see below. Let's not forget all the user interface changes, including a new desktop search interface which I think is now rolling out but I can be wrong.

The ongoing WebmasterWorld thread has the typical chatter - nothing too crazy right now. And if you missed last month, catch up over here.

Here is my recap:
