This week in search at the Search Engine Roundtable, we covered a possible Google update earlier in the week. We also reported that Google will be boosting the mobile friendly ranking signal in early May. Google is replacing the smartphone user agent with Android vs iPhone. Google warned bloggers not to do product reviews for freebies without nofollowing the link. Google added more details on RankBrain, that is is query specific ranking, doesn’t impact crawling and doesn’t replace links or other signals. Google said they don’t understand text in an image. Google confirmed they use site authority signals for new web pages. Google Search Analytics in the Search Console now lets you bookmark relative/dynamic date based URLs to save you time. Google said you can use the nosnippet tag to not show in the featured snippets section. Google now has app streaming in mobile search ads. Google’s transparency report now shows HTTPS adoption rates. Google image search launched their colored filter buttons. Google launched Google Analytics 360 Suite. That was this past week in search at the Search Engine Roundtable.
