This week at the Search Engine Roundtable, I published the monthly Google SEO recap. Google is pushing out the default SSL search globally. Google stepped up webmaster notifications alerting of low quality pages and traffic changes to top URLs. Google is also pushing Google+ with "thank them" on the Google search results. Google shares data between mobile and desktop to help you. Google gave timelines for Google Places updates as they upgrade their systems. Google sent out 700,000 messages to webmasters in the past two months. Google added user access controls to Webmaster Tools. And Google had a special Google logo for Internationals Women's Day yesterday. That was this past week in search at the Search Engine Roundtable.
