It’s really been a quite busy month in terms of Google updates. The topic included mainly in these updates are Google SEO, Google Search Console, Google Local and even many more. Well, the maximum of these are unconfirmed where one is nicknamed as Maverick Update. The confirmed one was featured snippets update which presents the fresh answers of the query. In short, it aims to showcase only the relevant answer of the query and hide the outdated ones.
