Here is a recap of what happened in the search forums today, through the eyes of the Search Engine Roundtable and other search forums on the web.

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Weekly Search Buzz RoundUp - 09/05/08: Google Chrome, Labor Day & AdWords Updates
    It's September, school time for many and moving time for me. I'm in the new place, baby! Now I need about a year to unpack, but I've made good progress. ;) This week, we celebrated Labor Day and saw a bunch of new Google developments, particularly Google Chrome's debut. Let's take a look. Google AdWords Gets Spiced Up The new Google AdWords Quality Score has been spotted and there are some screenshots available. The Quality
  • Google Says Private Registration Won't Hurt Your Search Rankings
    With the number of scammers who try to usurp ownership of domain increasing (I got 2 letters for 3 domains last week), it's a surprise that few people really take advantage of private registration for their domain names. However, many people don't know about WhoisGuard or Domains By Proxy and instead leave their domain names exposed with all identifying information intact. It's no wonder I even got a call yesterday about my domain name. In
  • Where In The World Are My Search Clicks Coming From: Google's Geographic Report
    Yesterday, the Inside AdWords blog reported that Google AdWords now gives you a Geographic Performance Report so that you can get "geographic distribution of your impressions, clicks, and conversions down to the ad group level." Here's one screenshot that we were able to get from our Google AdWords accounts: Already, this seems to be a great addition to help generate ideas.

  • Search Community Shares Chrome Browser Stats
    It's only been less than a week and a large percentage of internet folks are using the new Google Chrome Browser. (As for me, I haven't had time to give it a spin yet, but moving on...)

  • Most SEOs Will Clean Their Site Versus Start a New Site After Being Penalized
    A week ago, I asked what would you do if your site gets penalized. The options I gave were (A) Clean Up The Site & Request Reinclusion, (B) Quit the SEO Game and Play Golf or (C) Burn the Site & Start Fresh. Most SEOs would go with the method of cleaning up their site and requesting a reconsideration request with Google. While only 9% will kill the site and start new. Here is the
  • 44% of SEO/SEMs Say Google's Chrome Won't Win the Browser War
    A few days ago, I asked you guys if you think Google Chrome will win the browser wars. The responses were pretty much all over the place. We had a total of 162 responses, with 72 people saying no, 55 saying yes and 35 saying they have no idea. Here is the break down: :: No said 72 respondents or 44% :: Yes said 55 respondents or 34% :: No Idea said 35 respondents or
  • Out of Stock? Don't Delete or Redirect That Web Page!
    A common issue for e-commerce sites is what to do when an item goes out of stock. Do you delete the page? Do you redirect the page somewhere else? Do you just tell the user the item is out of stock? That was the question asked at a Google Groups thread and JohnMu, a Googler, replied. Before I tell you what he said, I'll tell you what I think.
