January 2010 Google Webmaster Report

Jan 5, 2010 • 8:49 am | comments (2) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google PageRank & Algorithm Updates
 

Every month we do a recap of the past month of Google changes based on an ongoing WebmasterWorld thread. To see last month's report, see the December 2009 Google webmaster report.

The thread doesn't really have many changes being reported. Most people are on the look out for the Caffeine index going live across all or more data centers. However, we have not really seen that happent yet. Maybe it will later this month, but as of now, there are not signs that Caffeine is live on a larger scale than the single data center. There are some discussions of normal flux and changes in the SERPs, that coincided with the New Years PageRank update, but not are all on the same page about that.

In any event, here are the key changes over the past month at Google, since our last report:

Thanks for the (dreaded) Caffeine note. Here's a couple questions: any way to follow or bookmark just these monthly updates? And (how many times have you been asked this!?) why does seroundtable.com have such search-engine-unfriendly urls?

Here's a couple questions: any way to follow or bookmark just these monthly updates? Nope And (how many times have you been asked this!?) why does seroundtable.com have such search-engine-unfriendly urls? They are search engine friendly... I just don't stuff keywords in them. Who told you they are unfriendly? That is way wrong.
