itunes-subscribe-video.pngBusy week in search at the Search Engine Roundtable. Google provided the 17 search quality changes they made in January, one being a change to how they pipe in Panda into the overall algorithm. Webmasters are noticing major shifts in the Google rankings and traffic. Google also updated PageRank this week. Google is testing a new navigation bar. Bing has a new design for their search results - it seems to be a test. Users are reporting issues with searching Google without cookies. SEOs are testing image changes to the authorship markup to increase click through rates. Google said SEO isn't good for users or the Internet at large. There is a bug in Google Maps that removed business owner photos from the map results. Google AdSense is causing security errors on some Internet Explorer browsers. WolframAlpha launched a paid pro version, it looks sweet. I am running another Panda poll, which I hope to post the result on Panda's anniversary. Finally, Google had a special logo for Charles Dickens. That was this past week at the Search Engine Roundtable.
