The last month was pretty insane with a lot of changes happening at Google, which is partially why my monthly report is a bit delayed. We had Penguin 4.0 finally go live and I covered that release with well over 15 stories alone, see those below. We also had many algorithm shifts and ranking discussion chatter to talk about - some were Penguin related and some were not - including some large penalties.

Google also rolled out AMP in the core mobile results, which lead to AMP trumping app deep links which I am not happy about. Google announced Google Home and the assistant and celebrated their 18th birthday this past month.

The ongoing WebmasterWorld thread is mostly Penguin chatter.

Here is the recap:
