It is that time of the month again for me to post the monthly Google Webmaster report. There was a lot covered but not anything really that major, at least on the algorithmic side.

We had the updated mobile friendly algorithm go live last month, although, I have not seen any complaints about it. Google did give us a status update on Penguin, but we don't feel any closer to it now anyway. Google dismissed an algorithm update and I have not seen any really in a while. Google did say the page speed for mobile is coming soon, so that is good to hear. Also, I am excited to learn more about this real time indexing API.

Google has been busy testing larger width SERP layouts and also card style layouts on desktop. They even tested black instead of blue links in the snippets.

Google Search Console got a lot of love this past month with deeper Google Analytics integration, a sets feature to combine properties and many more filtering options in the reporting. We also have new testing tools for mobile friendly and structured data.

That was the past month or so in what we covered in Google.

Of course, the ongoing WebmasterWorld thread still has talks on Zombies but not much else.

Here is the report from last month and here are quick links to catch you all up:
