Last month was a pretty busy month with Google announcing the launch of BERT, one of the most significant updates the company made to search ever - the company said. We have a lot on BERT below, including the possibility that the New York Times was hurt by it.

Google released the speed report for Search Console and integrated Site Kit into WordPress. Google launched in search those new snippet controls, so feel free to use them. Google said it will stop indexing Flash this year.

Google does not have an EAT score and no, there is no BERT score either. Good luck renting out experts to improve your E-A-T said Google. Oh, and content accuracy may be a ranking factor again.

Google had another short term indexing bug this month and is investigating broken search operators and a possible issue with recipe rich results.

It was a busy month, kind of like last month and the ongoing WebmasterWorld thread is still buzzing on BERT.

Here is a summary of the more important Google Webmaster related topics I wrote this month:
