Part of the recent Google Update that was really not a full update, by any standards, was that the Google Related command has been updated. Back in mid-July we reported that Related Search Command Changes at Google.com and it looks like more changes have occurred to it.

The related command is when you type related:www.domain.com into Google or click on the "Similar pages" link in the search results.

How do you test the new results? Use the IP 64.233.187.104 and give it a shot. They seem much more on topic then they are now at Google.com. There is currently a nice result set for related:www.seroundtable.com.

People should have spoken up that they use related: a while ago. :) Few enough people were using it that we decided to experiment with how to compute the data a little bit. I expect we'll make up our mind and standardize how we compute the related: data within a few months..

Matt, it is a link in the SERPs, you would think Google would find it important. ;-) Just messing. I never use it, so don't spend much time fixing it. Kidding...

Google launched a frëe packaged business solution for enterprises today including online chat, email, calendars, and hostíng. Called "Gmail for Your Domain " (a ghastly name that is only slightly better referred to as "Google Apps" within the actual admin area) this application package will allow a business owner or administrator to create a separate account per employee.
