Please excuse the tired video recap but I do cover some important search topics. First, Google released version 3.0 of the Pay Day Loan algorithm, but no one really noticed yet. MetaFilter is going to return to Google’s search results because Google is working on updating that unconfirmed algorithm update. Google has improved the reconsideration request rejection process, with more entailed responses in some cases. Google has considerably updated the site move documentation. Webmasters claim negative SEO works better than ever. Bing says you can have up to 125 trillion URLs listed in a sitemap file. Some webmasters notice a huge drop in structured data items being reported in Google Webmaster Tools. Even boring companies can get links, stop whining! Google relaunched their local business stuff under Google My Business, and it should work this time. Should SEO writers all die? And it is World Cup time and Google is going out on the logos. That was this past week in search at the Search Engine Roundtable.
