For the last recap of this month, we have for you the December Google webmaster report where I summarize the most important Google SEO/webmaster related topics for the month.

There seemed to have been a Google update but Google wouldn't confirm it, while we wait on Penguin. Google finally released their full search quality raters guidelines this past month. Google said clicks matter for local search, then retracted it. They also removed the location filter in the search results and added a bunch of features to the Search Console.

The ongoing WebmasterWorld thread has slow but typical chatter - nothing new to report today there.

There is a lot more, so see our summary below:
