Conversational search has been improved.
Looks like Google+ might be another factor to add to the 200 items Google looks at? Search Engine Journal says:
If you are joining Google Plus Communities and building an audience on Plus, answering questions, creating video content via Hangouts and Youtube, and using hashtags, you will be jumping on the Social Search bandwagon that Google is actively promoting.
Apparently the advice remains the same: develop original, high-quality content.

I read a new, unknown word today:
Affordance – See definition on Wikipedia.
A potential action that is made possible by a given object or environment; especially, one that is made easily discoverable.
Hadn’t heard of it before.
This is the context I heard it in:
