itunes-subscribe-video.pngThis week in search, I talk about Google announcing that site speed is now a ranking factor, watch the video to see how that impacts you. Google released outstanding reports in Webmaster Tools. Google created a wonderful Twitter archive search feature. Bing is now testing Tweets in search results. I discussed the topic of black hat SEO versus hacking. The Yell.com controversy on paid links is heating up. Hitwise and comScore released their search market share reports. Twitter may be the second largest search engine, maybe? Twitter released information about their ad model. Google announced impressive earnings and has almost $30 billion in the bank. Google offers prizes for AdWords forum participation. Finally, if you are into videos and making skits, can you put together a skit for "The SEO Office," it would be fun. That was this week at the Search Engine Roundtable.

My opinion is that Google is just trying to make their browsing experience better than it is. Dont forget, it does not effect your rankings by much.

Nice sum up, the webmaster tools reports could really have some more extra functions or information. I think for small pages the site speed will not have a huge impact, but for the big guys with plenty of content, tracking scripts, pictures etc. will suffer a negative impact. How big this impact will be? Only Google knows..
