First, I am offline, so this video and post was all created and produced on Wednesday, things may have transpired between now and then that I may have to catch up on this Monday. Google did some algorithm search ranking updates this week, it seem not too widespread but it was impactful. Google said the algorithm monitoring tools do often get it right. Google said there is no such thing as a top three ranking signals. Why? Well they explain it depends on the query and the context of the search. Google said they do not use click data for rankings, again. Google said shopping cart abandonment rate is not a fact. Google doesn’t review each and every spam report. Google doesn’t use disavow files for finding spam in their algorithms. Google said responsive sites are already ready for the mobile first index. Google said chatbots don’t make your pages better quality. Google updated their AdWords terms and conditions. Google is testing indoor maps in the knowledge panel. Google AdSense is beta testing automated auto ads. Google AdSense’s ad balance tool isn’t working right. Have a happy and healthy Jewish New Years! That was this past week in search a the Search Engine Roundtable.
