Google said they show the original date of a URL in the snippet unless the last modified date shows substantial changes. Google said for crawling purposes, try to keep under a few hundred milliseconds for fetch speed. Sometimes it matters where you place your XML sitemap file. Google said they do not support you checking millions of domains at once for manual actions Google My Business lets you add the localized version of the business name now. A report says Google is showing more image results in web search now. Google released data on how people use the Google Assistant differently based on using it on Android versus Google Home.
