This month, the big items are around two possible Google updates that went unconfirmed. Google did confirm they extended the snippets all the way to a max of 320 characters. Google also warned about two penalties, one over event markup and the other over AMP teasers.

Google said they will stop crawling the old AJAX scheme. Google also changed up the featured snippets and dropped the features in the info command.

It was a so-so busy month but the current status of the ongoing WebmasterWorld thread is quiet thus far for December.

Here are the stories I pulled out for the past month:
