Back from my quasi-vacation, we did text recaps the past two weeks, but I am back to the video recap now. This week we covered a Yahoo Search update. I also discussed the implications of Google's AJAX search result pages. Google is seriously bugging out, possibly due to budget cuts, resulting in 6 somewhat major bugs in just a week. SEOs have a new opportunity with the new "Did you mean" results in Google. AdWords AdWords Product PlusBox seems to be here to stay. Google tests new bulk AdWords diagnosis tool. The economy is taking a toll on publishers. AdSense is testing a new ad format. We have Super Bowl and Groundhog Day logos for some search engines. SMX West is next week, we got live coverage and hope to see you there! That is the past week of search news at the Search Engine Roundtable.
