This week in search, we saw changes to the Google local algorithm and results. We also reported on how it doesn’t seem there was a massive Google update earlier this week. We ran a poll on Penguin, do you think it will run again? Also, Google never said it won’t run again. Google said sometimes popups can count as your primary content. Google said short articles won’t penalize your site. Google said there is no penalty for not linking externally. Google said place the disavow file on your canonical domain. Google is testing a maps feature to search local inventory. Google is testing a card carousel style for the Sitselinks. Google AdWords launched new shopping and flight search features. Google AdWords is testing percentages instead of stars in the reviews results. Google Maps brought back the “a Google user” review feature. That was this past week in search at the Search Engine Roundtable.
