Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • GoogleGuy Retire From WebmasterWorld Again?
    The infamous and legendary GoogleGuy at WebmasterWorld has gone almost a full year without posting at WebmasterWorld. GoogleGuy's last post was in a WebmasterWorld thread on July 24, 2008 at about 6:30pm (EST). He replied to confirm a PageRank toolbar update. GoogleGuy use to be extremely active in the WebmasterWorld forums, ranking up 2,882 posts over the year. But for the past few years, he/she has been very quiet. Why? Well, now GoogleGuy is not
  • StreamRotator Blamed For Google Penalizing Porn Industry?

Some thought Yahoo would layoff an additional 5%, but those reports were wrong. We are all anticipating some Microsoft/Yahoo deal happening sooner then later,
  • Google Webmaster Tools Won't Load For Some Users
    There are some reports of Google Webmaster Tools not loading for some users. Some of these reports are coming from WebmasterWorld and I also personally have this issue. When I try to access the tool, the URL redirects back and forth between the Google Account authentication system and the webmaster tools home page. If I try a different browser, it lets me in, so it seems to be a cookie issue for some users. Firefox
