This week in search, I covered a couple of status updated on Google’s Penguin 4.0 launch. I also shared some ranking changes being seen at Google, are they tests? I talked about the January Google webmaster report. An extortionist used SEO tactics and it landed him in federal prison for 37 months. Google updated their crawl errors report for apps finally. Google said you can expedite your robots.txt update in the Search Console. Google said self signed SSLs are mostly invalid. But the HTTPS ranking boost is only based on the URL being HTTPS. Google said decimal points in the URL are not good. Google said do not worry about duplicate content when merging sites. Google said featured snippets do not lead to less traffic and I have my own featured snippets. Matt Cutts shared old pictures of his notes on the Google PageRank algorithm. AOL Search is powered by Bing now. I had my office captured by a Google Trusted Photographer, it was cool. Gary Illyes from Google shows his 75% score on the SEO test. Google’s John Mueller was helping SEOs on New Years. That was this past week in search at the Search Engine Roundtable.
