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:

  • Something Is Up (Or Down) With Google's Search Algorithm
    It has been a really long time since covering SEO in the forums where I have seen so much stress and discussion amongst webmasters and SEOs about a possible change in the Google algorithm. We wrote about the Google May Day update twice, people suggesting this is a self improving algorithm that impacts the mid-long-tail keywords. But the discussion continues to go on at WebmasterWorld, already on it's 3rd thread on this single topic this

  • Google AdSense Now Displaying Revenue Share in AdSense Console
