January 2012 Google Webmaster Report

Google WebmasterDecember is normally a slow month for Google updates and SEO discussions and this December was fairly slow. Google promised not to do any major Panda updates and for the most part, it seems they did not. Although, a few days ago, Google got in trouble buying links so they penalized themselves again.

That being said, currently there is some discussion about a possible Panda update that struck down on January 4th or 5th - but I am not seeing enough chatter on the topic, yet, to make an assumption on if it is real or not. But many folks feel that soon enough SEOs will stop talking about Panda and start talking about Google's next beast to hit the algorithm. Good assumption there, don't you think?

Google is pushing its own Chrome browser down in search rankings for 60 days following reports that the company was involved in an ad campaign that paid for links to bolster search traffic. And since Google has rules against that sort of thing and has worked hard to keep paid results out of its search engine, the reports were more than a bit embarrassing for the company.

I certainly think focus on the next big update would help.  They will likely continue to tweak Panda but my thoughts are what's next?  Someone has to have heard something somewhere I would hope.
