  • Video Recap of Weekly Search Buzz :: February 27, 2009
    In this week's edition, I covered Yahoo's new ad tools that should help them gain support. Also, I discussed Google Search's recent "brand push." Google Blog Search is still working on a solution. I discussed in more detail, the link clique concept - worth watching, in my opinion. Yahoo lowered minimum bids for some advertisers. Google updates their image index again. Google News added 20,000 new sources. Google News also dropped publishers by accident. AdWords
  • Google AdSense Account Console Goes Offline For 90 Minutes
    There were reports this morning at about 1am (EST), that the Google AdSense console was down. A DigitalPoint Forums thread has several publishers upset with the downtime, but soon later it came back up. The Wall Street Journal blog has confirmation from Google about this downtime.

Google has 26,093 right now and it is growing. Yahoo http://twitter.com/yahoo only has 4,709 and they have been on Twitter for a while, and Live Search http://twitter.com/live_search only has 1,434 followers. Let's not forget Ask.com http://twitter.com/askdotcom with a whopping 94 followers. Google joins and
  • AdWords Requiring Analytics To Be "Linked" To Send Cost Data
    There is an important change coming up for those Google AdWords users who use Google Analytics to track their campaigns. Brad posted this information yesterday, but just in case you missed it, here it is again. This is the email being sent to those that are impacted by this change. But I am concerned that not everyone who would be impacted by the change received the email, so here it is: On March 4th, we
