Happy Black Friday everyone, this week in search, we covered some important topics. First, Google had a nice story in TIME about their StarTrek communicator device, but I found one of the top engineers working on that and shared what he had to say about it - including the universal assistant and ambient computing. Google said the next Penguin update will be huge. Gary Illyes explained he doesn’t work specifically in the Penguin code. Only a small group has access to Google’s search algorithm. Google will target deceptive mobile redirects through mobile affiliate traffic networks. Google’s site command will now show featured snippets, which is nice. John Mueller of Google said you don’t need to write expert product descriptions. Google had a code error that knocked TripAdvisor and Yelp out of the race in t he mobile results. Google removed reviews and a lot more from the new Google+ business pages. Google Place Actions is a new undocumented rich snippet coming soon. Also check out the Star Wars Google search user interface, it is so cool. That was this past week in search at the Search Engine Roundtable.
