  • Google Bug Serves "Redirect Notice" On Queries With Hashes
    Google has confirmed a bug where searchers are forced through a Google redirect page prior to ending up on the ultimate search result. This only happens when you search for something with a hash, for example a search on [c# language]. If you search for that, you are presented with search results, but if you click on the search results, you are prompted by a Google redirect warning. Here is the path: You can see
  • Google Maps Car Did Not Flip Over As Street Views Suggests
    Yesterday afternoon, I was using street views to research some locations around my office and I spotted something weird.

    A month ago we reported that France May Fine Google Over Suspending AdWords Advertiser and most recently, Google acquired ITA an online travel booking engine. As I explained in both posts, Webmasters fear that Google continues to get into their business.

  • Video Game Day Logo : Our Best Yet
    I normally do not do showcase our themes when the search engines do not have special logos or themes. But today is Video Game Day and we have a theme for you.
