It is that time of the month, here is our monthly Google webmaster report, where I summarize the most important webmaster/SEO related topics over the past month. If you missed the August report, make sure to scan through that to catch up.

This month, we had some big events including signs of a big Google update over this past weekend. We also had signs of a local quality update in the local pack. Google announced they are introducing a new interstitial mobile penalty in January 2017 and also removed the mobile friendly labels this week from the mobile search results.

Google quietly announced the real time index which is their search live coverage carousel. They did more with AMP notifications in the Search Console and added schema 3.1 support.

Google redesigned the local pack and hurt search marketers by restricting the keyword planner data.

Here are the key links for this past month:

Google Penalty: Google Search: Google SEO/Webmaster: Google Maps/Local:

Finally, there has been ongoing Google zombie discussions throughout all of August.
