Google Algorithm Update July 29 2016

Google Webmasters just displayed the release of a new algorithm update change, which now can be seen in Webmasters for 07-29-2016.  The update is not “actually” an algorithm change, but more correctly can be identified as an erroneous labeling for device categories.  As far as we can determine no updates or changes were actually made, but they notated the issue in Webmasters Search Console.
