Google Webmaster SEO ReportHere is our monthly summary of what SEOs and webmasters are talking about in terms of SEO and ranking changes at Google. Each month we cover a WebmasterWorld thread where webmasters and SEOs talk about every little change they see occur in their rankings and at Google.

The key points being discussed this month is the impact on holiday sales for the big shopping season which started a week or so ago. The key points from the thread are:

  • Google Referrals "Plummeting" This Holiday Season
  • Unrelated Search Results Displaying Instead
  • Exact Match on Product Names Not Showing Products
  • Larger Online Retailers Dominating
  • Some Small Retailers Claiming Great Success
  • Big Thing: Poor Customer Service Algorithm Now In Effect For Retailers (see first link below)

Here are recap links from individual stories we covered related to Google in the past month, these are specific to SEO related topics:
