IHelpYou minus one

I spent the week in NYC for the Search Engine Strategies conference, as a speaker on the "Search Term Research & Targeting" panel on day one, and as a freeloader for the rest of the show.

Internet access at SES was spotty, and I was barely able to read my email all week. I returned to find a number of excellent threads going at IHY:

The pick of the week is Alan Perkins of e-Brand Management posting some excellent information on "Referrer Spam - Why you shouldn't publish your Web logs." Added bonus: instructions on using .htaccess to block access from specific IP addresses.

Yahoo's new paid-inclusion-plus-we-want-to-be-paid-by-the-click program stirred up a lot of criticism. Still to be determined is how Yahoo will manage to label/disclose the paid listings without running afoul of the FTC. Expect Commercial Alert to watch their actions with interest.
