I normally hate posting the top stories recap of the year, since I spend a heck of a lot of timing hand-selecting what I think the most important stories for the year were when I do my anniversary post but here it is, like I did last year.
Similar to last year you can see much of the top stories are specific to Google Updates such as Google Penguin, Google Panda and others. And to no ones surprise, there were a lot of popular Google logo stories. This is ordered by most visited pages by Google Analytics data.
