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:

  • Cuil Reviews Bing: SEOs Take Notice
    A few weeks ago, I noticed a blog post from the Cuil blog (Cuil is that new search engine) named So how is Bing doing? I found it very interesting that Cuil did a blog post on how good Bing is.

  • Google's Logo Questioned On Who Wants To Be a Millionaire Show

  • Video Recap of Weekly Search Buzz :: August 14, 2009
    In this week's recap, I first discuss the 30 sessions we covered at the SES San Jose show this past week.
