Google Webmaster ReportTalk about a crazy month in Google, Google launched Penguin 3.0 in a pretty sloppy way, they also launched the DMCA algorithm and had Panda refreshes throughout that time.

Google also updated their technical webmaster guidelines with extreme hints at mobile UX ranking signals. They added a feature to Webmaster Tools for mobile usability issues and did a ton of mobile interface warning tests.

Oh, Google also confirmed toolbar PageRank is dead again and released a new In The News news box that upset a lot of publishers. Finally, it looks like Matt Cutts is not returning in 2014 to Google.

The ongoing WebmasterWorld thread is still pretty active talking about all the updates, as many are still rolling out.

Here are all the stories you may want to catch up on in the past 30-days related to Google webmaster/SEO topics:
