Google is giving insight into their search quality, but did you learn anything. Google is testing a new top bar that pushes down the results. Google is testing a new real estate snippet with Zillow. Google added a help document for troubleshooting rich snippets. Google seems to be testing random numbers of search results on various pages. Google had to pay the US Department of Justice $500 million for illegal drug ads. A bug on Google causes people to click in the search box to search. Google fixed a bad product search bug. Google +1 button is now integrated with Google +. Matt Cutts explains the difference between don't be evil and do no evil. Then Google explains why they can't offer quality customer service. That was this week in search at the Search Engine Roundtable.

HI Barry, i guess "dont b evil" mean that Google provides all possible info and hopes that the people don't use these info for doing evil deeds, as there was one article in news abt Google showing search results for "how to kill a person with baseball bat"
