It has been a pretty busy month in the Google SEO and webmaster world. We had two possible Google algorithm updates, one on February 20th and one on March 1st - both unconfirmed. Google said the mobile first index will expand within the upcoming several weeks.

Google also began rolling out multifaceted featured snippets, removed the view image button in image search, launched the people also search for box, killed off the blogsearch ping feature and changed their request indexing feature due to spam and abuse.

The ongoing WebmasterWorld thread is still discussing the March 1st update a bit and other ongoing SEO topics.

So as you can see, a lot has happened this past month. You can read the more important stories below and also catch up on last month with the February report.
