This past month, Google announced the Page Speed update, a new ranking algorithm designed to lower the ranking of mobile pages that are really slow. Google also may have released a few unconfirmed algorithmic updates to core search.

Google released the beta Google Search Console to all, which gave us 16 months of data. A new PageSpeed Insights tool came out with some interesting new ways to report on speed as well. Google promised to have a solution to show the publisher URLs for AMP pages in the coming future. Google also opened up a new Twitter account named @searchliaison to help people understand why Google search does what it does.

The ongoing WebmasterWorld thread at this point in time is pretty quiet.

Here is a recap of the past month:
