  • How To Remove a Facebook Page in Google Search
    A Google Webmaster Help thread has a searcher asking Google how they can remove a Facebook page from Google. The page has been deleted from Facebook, but it still shows up in the Google Cache.

    Yesterday Google announced the latest version of the AdWords API, version v2009. This is an upgrade from AdWords API 13 which was released in October 2008.

  • Example Of Google Penalty Email Over Hidden Text
    A DigitalPoint Forum thread has a copy of a email sent to a webmaster for violating Google's webmaster guidelines. The email specifically shows the webmaster which guidelines they are breaking, in this case, hiding text. Here is a copy of the email: Dear site owner or webmaster of somewifi.com, While we were indexing your webpages, we detected that some of your pages were using techniques that are outside our quality guidelines, which can be found
