This week in search, I blow through tons of topics in 11.5 minutes. First up was the DMCA piracy algorithm going live the other week. Google updated their webmaster guidelines to tell people not to block CSS or JavaScript, they added mobile usability reports and issued more global warnings for Flash usage - mobile is big! Google added a new meta tag to block the Sitelinks search box. Google News Publisher Center is now available in 21 countries. Negative SEO is a real problem and Google needs to take a close look at it. HTTP Strict Transport may appear to serve 307 redirects, but GoogleBot handles it fine. Google AdWords rolled out multilogin support and new automated ad extension reports are coming soon. Google My Business had a major upgrade around reviews, heat maps, phone tracking and their Android and iOS apps. Google AdSense direct has been discontinued. Google mocks SEOs again around authorship with rel superauthor. Bing lets you search with Emoji characters, but so does Yahoo and DuckDuckGo. Bing downsized Duane Forrester, killing that connection to webmasters. I also posted all the Halloween logos from the search industry. That was this past week in search at the Search Engine Roundtable.
