This week in search, Google probably did a search algorithm update last weekend – but they did not confirm it. Google’s mobile first indexing is now on over 50% of Google’s search results. Google’s notifications for mobile-first indexing are delayed. Google’s John Mueller finally gave advice on the Medic Update. Google updated their link schemes page to say if you require follow links to your site from third parties via terms of service or other legal methods, it is against their guidelines. Google is now showing how to schema in the search results. Google said you can ignore negative SEO threats, Google can detect automated links and if a random link tool can find bad links than Google probably ignores them already. Google says they do recognize unlinked web mentions. Google says linking to media mentions is okay. Google said manual action reviews can lead to more details sometimes. Most SEOs like the old Google Search Console over the new one. Google My Business updated the products beta tab. Google is testing expandable more people carousels. Google is testing a black snippet URL interface. Google is testing a pronounce search feature. That was this past week in search at the Search Engine Roundtable.
