I am skipping the video portion of the weekly recap and just offering you a text version due to being extremely tired. This week WebProNews posted a nice interview with Google's Matt Cutts. Bing told us they use hyphens as word separators in URLs. Google had issues paying Canadian publishers. Yahoo shut down their contextual ad program, Yahoo Publisher Network. We released four polls, one on real time spam, another on the canonical tag, also a poll on why SEOs got into SEO and how SEOs perceive PageRank today. Google and the industry went all out with their April Fools pranks. Finally, Google showed five doodles for Hans Christian Andersen. That was this week at the Search Engine Roundtable.
