This week we covered some rumors that Google Caffeine is live on about 80% of Google's data centers. Google crawls sitemap files based on how often they are updated. Google doesn't want you to change your URLs. Google does more search suggestions and auto-spelling corrections. Google launched Google Places for business on Google Maps, with many new features. Google brought back 3D street views on maps and added smooth scrolling. Some guy wants to use Google to propose to his finance. Google did doodles for Earth Day, Israel's independence day in Israel, St. George's Day in the UK and Children's Day in Turkey. Google also placed a colorless white logo on Google Poland and then Google China as a sign of mourning. That was this week at the Search Engine Roundtable.
