There are some fun topics towards the end of this show but you have to suffer through the boring stuff first. Panda 2.2 is officially out and about and some sites recovered and some sites did not. I think Google should send out Panda notifications via Webmaster Tools. Google is showing the raw +1 counts in the search results for some searchers and some queries. Google released HTTP header support for the canonical tag. Google tests a new grayed out design. There are reports of Google testing infinite scrolling web search results. AdWords is removing the custom map based location targeting. AdSense publishers are complaining about earnings. Google beat Facebook to 1 billion visitors in a single month. DuckDuckGo uses the Filter Bubble concept to market against Google, but Google actually responds. Don't blame others if your rankings suck. Google Places now gets hit by the flaming bag of poop. Dilbert had two cartoons on the darker side of SEO. Finally, we had Father's Day logos and Summer logos from Google, Yahoo, Bing and other places. That was this past week at the Search Engine Roundtable.
