This week, I covered why there were some huge dips in the performance and search analytics reports in Google Search Console - Google stopped counting the anonymous queries in the sum data. Google says the link source alone is’t enough to make the link bad. Google is testing a sticky round search box design for search. Google initially changed the search settings page and then brought it back - it must have been a bug. Google Search Console does have a download latest links button. Google launched a structured data code lab. Google first converts PDFs to HTML to index them. Google can process canonical tags in JavaScript. Google said reviewing old content and making sure it is still valid is good, but doesn’t warrant you updating the date of the article. Google confirmed that redirecting all your internal URLs to your home page is a bad idea. Google is testing grouping two results from the same site in one search snippet. Google has released version 4.2 of the Google My Business API. Google Ads now lets you edit ads in the Overview Page cards. Google Assistant now supports multilingual conversations. Google’s John Mueller caught someone trying to make a PBN on Reddit. President Trump thinks Google is rigged against him and warns Google something will be done. That was this past week in search at the Search Engine Roundtable.
