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:

  • Google Now Notifying Webmasters After Reconsideration Request Review via Email
    I have excellent news for the SEO world today. It seems like Google has finally pushed through a change with the reconsideration request process that SEOs and webmasters have been asking for since the reconsideration request began. Now, if you submit a reconsideration request, Google may email you a few days later with a notification that they have actually reviewed your site. The review email reads: Subject: We've processed your reconsideration request for [mywebsite.com] We
  • Google Sent AdSense Publisher Wrong Check
    A Google AdSense Help thread reports that one publisher not only received his check in the mail this month, but also received the check for another publisher in the same envelope. The publisher said in the thread: My payment cheque arrived with someone else's cheque too. I don't in the least mind posting it on, but I feel I ought to let Google and the cheque's owner know what's happening. Who do I email? Google
  • Don't Search For Nude Pictures if You Don't Want to See Nude Pictures
    Some times I have to point out the most ridiculous threads in the forums.

  • Google AdSense Reporting Delay on June 9th
    Google's AdSenseAdvisor posted a thread at WebmasterWorld notifying AdSense publishers that there will be a reporting delay and we should not panic. Normally, when the reports lag, you see hundreds of posts in the various forums with publishers panicking. It is no surprise some people worry, because some people are fully dependent on the income they make from Google through AdSense. AdSenseAdvisor said yesterday at about 2pm (EST): Just writing to confirm that you may
  • Does Google See SEOs as Criminals?
    The Nofollow PageRank sculpting topic was not the only heated debate at last week's SMX Advanced conference. We have some SEOs claiming Google sees all SEOs as criminals before being innocent. Michael Gray's How Google Profiles SEO’s and Lisa Barone's Google Openly Profiles SEOs As Criminals are both well written pieces arguing that Google doesn't treat SEOs equally to all personalities on the internet. Let me quote one section to sum it up, but honestly,
  • Google Notifies AdWords Customers of $20 Million Settlement
    In April at Search Engine Land I reported Google agreed to settle on an AdWords case for $20 million. The case was over the daily budget feature and how many advertisers may have exceeded that budget by 120% on occasions. Google said then, "Google believes the claims are without merit, but we are pleased to have the litigation behind us and to move forward with our business objectives." Now, I am seeing reports via DigitalPoint
