The month of September was an insane month for Google, specifically for SEOs and webmaster. We have several unconfirmed algorithm updates with a couple confirmed ones. Google updates their image search design and algorithms as well. Google had their 20th birthday. Search Console came out of beta and also Google released new features for the knowledge graph.

Google also released the dynamic rendering docs, added more features to Search Console and released a boat load of new search features linked to below. Oh, and let's not forget all the user interface and Google Maps tests this past month.

It was a busy month and the ongoing chatter in the WebmasterWorld thread is super busy around the Google updates still. Here is a quick way to catch up on it all.

Here are the curated topics I picked out from the last 30 days or so:
