Today in a special Christmas/Holiday segment of the Search Buzz Video Recap, I discuss several topics we covered over the course of the week. First, it seems like there may be a Bing update taking places - but why now? Google Webmaster Tools link report is now showing redirects. Google and UK's ASA are trying to make it the law to disclose paid links. A nice SEO thread discusses the small SEO changes that can make a big differences. Google warns that some navigation elements may be interpreted as spam. Google does not update the cache on each crawl. Google added a site may be compromised label to the search results and Matt Cutts of Google explained why. Google is shutting down the Google Base API in exchange for two new Shopping APIs. Google sent a personalized video message to some of their advertisers. We had nice Winter logos from Yahoo, Bing and others but not Google. Google, Yahoo, Bing and many others posted their Christmas logos already and we showed them off. That was this past week at the Search Engine Roundtable. Happy Holidays!
