Google said they will now index HTTPS URLs by default, when they can. Google’s John Mueller gave SEO tips for 2016. Google updated their rich snippets for articles documentation to require author name and add AMP specifics. Google said there is no technical advantage to splitting up your sitemap file. Google said avoid using special characters in your URLs. Google updated their App Indexing documentation. Google launches their Google My Business API. Search for bubble level in Google and you’ll get a nice treat on your mobile device. Google replaced the “web” navigation with “all” instead. Google posted their holiday decorations for Chanukah, Christmas and Kwanzaa this Sunday. We’ve updated our Search Engine Roundtable app and shared some of our data in the Search Console. That was this past week in search at the Search Engine Roundtable.
