The 3 pillars of Google search rankings were exposed. Google is testing a simple search version and added follower/like counts to the results. Google is testing ask a Doctor, new small business features and flight prices. Google added support for new organization markup and profile and discussion forum markup with the corresponding Search Console reports, plus learning vide reports were added to Search Console.
