Here is a recap of what happened in the search forums today, through the eyes of the Search Engine Roundtable and other search forums on the web.

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Video Recap of Weekly Search Buzz :: February 12, 2010
    In this week's search video recap, I start of with an overview of Google Buzz. I then talk about Bing's revised webmaster FAQs. Google is not offering SEO services, despite what people say. Also, when should you not use the canonical tag. Adsense is using previous search queries, they sent out Valentines day cards and publishers feel like they are earning less and less. AdWords has a bug with the billing information. We posted
  • Vancouver 2010 Olympic Logos from Google, Yahoo, Bing & Others
    The 2010 Winter Olympics kick off tonight in Vancouver and some of the search engines are already sporting their special logos for the event. Google, Yahoo, Bing and others have their logos up. We will post what is live now below and continue to add to them as other search engines create their logos. Google: It may be the widest Google logo in their history at 760 pixels wide. Yahoo: Bing: I am sure more
  • Google Is Not Offering SEO Services, They Help Webmasters Every Day
    Yesterday, the SEO community went nuts after they learned about a Norwegian AdWords blog post announcing that Googlers will be providing site clinics to help webmasters on the SEO front. You can read the translated version over here. Yes, it is weird that an AdWords blog is talking about SEO site clinics. But it is not like Google is offering SEO services, where they provide link building services, make changes to your web site, give
  • Google AdSense Now Using Previous Search Queries For Ad Relevancy
    The Google AdSense blog announced they are now using the query data in the referrer URL to better target and match the AdSense ads on your web site. Basically, if you go to Google, type in a query, click on a site that has AdSense on it, Google will use the query you entered on Google (or any search engine) to match the ads to the query and the contextual nature of the page. Supposedly,
  • Condolences To Bing's Brett Yount
    This site has always been about the community. I try to share educational insights, news details, plus have fun when appropriate. I also have shared sad events that impact significant people in our industry, because - we are one large community that is impacted by the people around us. Recently, I asked where did the Bing webmaster representative, Brett Yount, go? He basically went off the forums and we didn't hear from him for a
  • Google Buys Aardvark, You Surprised?
    Yesterday, TechCrunch broke the news that Aardvark, a human powered answer engine, was purchased by Google. Google confirmed the deal, but did not confirm the $50 million price tag associated with the deal. Aardvark basically allows you to send the network a question. It will then look at your network of people, figure out who is best to answer the question you asked and send them the question via IM, email or Twitter. If (big
  • Picture of Google News New Home Page Test
    A week ago today, we reported Google News was testing a new home page design. Since then, I have been begging those who have seen the test to post a picture so the rest of us can see what they see. Finally, yesterday, someone posted an image in the Google News Help forum. Here is that picture: Extremely different from the current Google News home page. You can click on the image to get a
