This month was a pretty quiet month in terms of major things, mostly because it was the summer. But we did see some algorithm movement with the Google search rankings. Google did confirm that Panda changed but won't share the number of algorithms they use. Things are looking good for the mobile first index, and Gary Illyes suggests you build a comparison tool.

AMP seems to now be powering featured snippet results in mobile. Google confirmed once again more data is coming to the google Search Console reports. Forbes, Entrepreneur, and others now nofollow some external links. Google's question and answer feature web live in the mobile results. Google is actually testing website mentions in the local pack, which is very revealing. Oh, and we can't forget Google changing the first click free program soon.

The ongoing WebmasterWorld thread has the normal chatter going on now. There may be early signs of an update, but I am watching it. If you missed the last recap, you can get it here.
