Google Panda 4.2, Advice On Algorithms, Bing Emoji & AdWords Changes - This week in search, I run really through a ton of search news. I start with Google’s attempted answer on why Panda 4.2 is rolling out so slowly. I then explain it is a global Panda roll out and I share stats on my site’s recovery. Google said they won’t give advice on algorithmic issues. Google issued out mass warning notification emails to those who block CSS and JavaScript. I share tips on opening up those CSS and JavaScript assets. Google won’t be indexing content in tabs that dynamically load. Google does check to make sure your mobile and desktop site aren’t vastly different. Google increased their server capacity to store more index rates. Bing’s organic search traffic drop is related to Bing not sharing the organic search source drop. Google AdWords updated their quality scores. I have screen shots of the new home service ads in Google. Google Play now has AdWords ads. Google launched the dynamic search ads globally. Google Maps shows when a store or business is at its busiest time. Google is testing hotel price drop cards in Google Now. Google is cutting off access to their auto complete API. Bing is testing an Emoji virtual keyboard. Google said there was a 180% increase in hacked sites in this past year. And Google is killing off the requirement to have a Google+ account to use their services. That was this past week in search at the Search Engine Roundtable.
