Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Study: Fear Still Exists Over Google's Supplemental Index
    A month and a half ago, we polled our audience, trying to gauge how concerned SEOs are with Google's 'hidden' supplemental index. The results are now in, we have 80 responses and I wanted to share them with you. Here is the breakdown of responses to the question "Are You Concerned Over Google's Supplemental Index?" :: Somewhat Concerned said 32 respondents or 40% :: Very Concerned said 24 respondents or 30% :: Not Concerned said
  • Google AdSense Publishers Unable To Login Last Night
    Last night, I noticed dozens of reports that Google AdSense publishers were unable to login to their AdSense consoles. The first report came in at 1:59am (EST) from a Google AdSense Help thread.

  • Google Search March 2009 Webmaster Report Update
    In our monthly tradition, we are reporting on the March 2009 Google Search changes as seen via the ongoing WebmasterWorld thread. You can see the February report that we posted last month to catch up. This month, one member feels Google is now weighing heavier on the keywords used in backlinks (anchor text) to determine page relevancy.
