itunes-subscribe-video.pngGoogle came out with their monthly search updates posts and I decided to guess at which were Penguin related. Bing announced a huge redesign and functionality change to Bing Search, where social and Facebook are tied directly in. Google listed advice for Penguin sufferers but some of it is scary. SEOmoz might release a tool to show what is spam and what is not. Webmasters are suing webmasters over linking to each other, a negative SEO outcome. Are 20% of SEOs really not qualified as SEOs? Google Webmaster Tools added dashboards and new navigation. Google Analytics now shows who links to you. Google Maps has a new bulk listing management tool. Will Google name the next update Panther? A Google AdWords representative is a bit too happy about PageRank. Did Yahoo copy their logo from MAD magazine? Google had a neat logo for the person who discovered King Tut's tomb. That was this past week at the Search Engine Roundtable.

Barry, in answer to your introduction, your videos are always useful, even when you're sleep deprived or otherwise under the weather. I and my team start every Monday morning by watching the latest edition together. Your videos are a great way to start the new week, keeping everyone up to speed with developments and at the same time allowing me to check team members understanding of the points covered - a nice informal training opportunity. Personally, I'd drop the Google logo coverage, but that's a minor quibble. This is a really excellent service you're providing here, and I like your objectivity. Don't stop doing them.

I appreciate the feedback - rarely get it, so it is helpful. I should probably drop the logos.
