Google announced they rewrote their search algorithm to make it faster and more precise, nicknamed it Hummingbird. However, there is no good way to see if your site was impacted by it. Facebook finally made their search useful by letting you search status updates and posts. Google mobile is now officially on the card user interface. Knowledge graph has filters and integrated with Google Now, plus there is a cool new musician version of it. Google Authorship was added to image search but I don't understand why. We had serious reporting delays with Google Webmaster Tools search query data. Matt Cutts said Google Trends is less useful because of spammers. Google AdWords can now estimate conversions across devices. Google AdWords added a native copy and paste feature. Google AdSense publishers blame the Government shutdown for their earnings decline. Google Glass Apps can now be distributed on MyGlass. This week is the top contributor summit at Google. Google had a logo for Yosemite's 123rd birthday on the first day it was closed due to the government shutdown. That was this past week in search from the Search Engine Roundtable.
