Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Aaron Wall's SEO Toolbar Gets Major Buzz From Community
    I am not a heavy user of SEO tools or toolbars, but Aaron Wall's latest tool, he named The SEO Toolbar has received a ton of feedback and buzz from the SEM industry. The day it was released, which was some time last week, about a dozen or so SEO blogs wrote about it. Most people praised this toolbar as the only tool SEOs need. This toolbar is jam packed with features including link data,
  • Google AdSense Ad Filter Problem Might Be Related To Definitions
    Last week, I really gave it to Google hard with my post named Publishers Feeling Screwed By Google AdSense Competitive Ad Filter. In short, the complaints about the Google AdSense competitive ad filter not working had lingered on with no response from Google. Google caught wind of the increased level of dissatisfaction from publishers and finally posted in the WebmasterWorld thread saying: Sorry, guys. This one is entirely my bad. It's not that AdSense dropped
  • SEOs Discuss Impact of Google's "Preferred Sites" Search Preference

I mean, the thread is pretty active and
  • Getting Hacked May Also Hurts Your Google AdWords Campaign
    We have been covering the consequences of a site getting hacked from the SEO perspective, time and time again. See our hack tag for more articles on that. But it also may impact your Google AdWords campaign. A AdWords Help thread has discussion that an advertiser noticed his campaigns were stopped and his account looked to be suspended.

  • Search Logos for Inauguration Day, Did Google & Yahoo Forget?
    Today is the day Barack Obama becomes the 44th President of the United States of America. It is Inauguration day and this one, is more hyped up then any other inauguration I have ever witnessed. That being said, we have logos from AOL, Live.com, DogPile and yours truely - but nothing from Google, Yahoo or Ask.com.
