Google Webmaster SEO ReportEvery month we do a brief recap of the most important topics we covered in terms of those who care about the SEO and webmaster related concerns with Google. You can see last month's report in the January 2011 Google Webmaster Report.

This month, the WebmasterWorld thread isolated a bunch of topics. The primary topics are concerns over Google's new scraper filter, which sites will be impacted by the new content farm filter and then ongoing traffic shifts due to holidays and weather. Here are some bullet points from topics in the thread:

  • Google's new scraping filter algorithm
  • Google to go after content farms with new algorithm
  • Worried about enhanced duplicate content filters
  • SuperBowl traffic slump concerns
  • Snow storms causing internet outages

Here are stories we covered over the past month which I found to be particularly important for SEOs to read, if they have not done so yet:
