It is that time of the month again, where I recap the most important topics (in my opinion) for webmasters related to Google core organic search topics.

The biggest item by far is the launch of the Google Panda 4.2 update. Many didn't notice, it was confirmed on the record and it is the slowest rollout of Panda ever. It isn't slow to confuse webmasters but just for technical reasons. And those that doubt it, I see a Panda recovery based on data on this site.

Outside of Panda, we had Google announce the new Search Analytics API, which is a huge upgrade for webmasters. We had Google send out two new webmaster notifications including cannot access CSS or JavaScript and incorrect hreflang implementation. Finally, Google told us they have a hard time giving advice on algorithmic issues.

That being said, here is my best effort to sort the topics for the past month in priority order:

Google Panda & Some Penguin:

More Important Google Topics: Google SEO & Webmaster: Google Industry:

Here is the recap from last month.
