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:

  • AdSense Publishers Earn 68% of Revenue Says Google
    I am shocked that Google is revealing the revenue share split of the AdSense content and search network. Google said today they give publishers 68% of the ad revenue earned on the content ads and 51% of revenue earned on the search ads. Google told me on the phone that this is the same share worldwide for all publishers who signed up online. There are special deals made for partners, I guess such as Amazon.com.
  • PDF ReCrawling Takes Longer Than Web ReCrawling
    A Google Webmaster Help thread has a nice little crawling tidbit for advanced SEOs. Did you know that it typically takes a long time for a PDF document to be recrawled and indexed by Google? Exactly how long, I am not sure, I wonder if someone has done some tests on that. But JohnMu from Google made a comment about this topic, saying: Reprocessing a PDF can generally take a bit of time, so if
  • Buying Domains For Link Building
    A WebmasterWold thread has discussion on the strategy of buying domains, expired or soon to expire domains, to build links quickly. A member of the forum asked if people still use this as a strategy. The SEO said: A few years ago I developed the strategy of buying dropped domains with good backlinks and pagerank, and either 301-ed them to one of my main sites, or host them with a bit of content, and link
  • Google Site Performance in Webmaster Tools Updating Often Now
    There were some Google Webmaster Help thread with reports that the site performance reports in Google Webmaster Tools was not updating that often. Normally, it should update every other day or so but recently it has not been doing so. A Google Webmaster Help thread has confirmed reports of the issue and that it should now be resolved. sreeram from Google said: Yup, there was another temporary glitch. Things are back to normal now. I
  • Links Return To Yahoo Site Explorer
    On Friday we reported that Yahoo Site Explorer links went missing and literally about a 100,000 of the links were lost to this site. Well, I guess it was a bug, because our links are back and so are everyone else's. Here is a screen shot from today: Here it was from Friday: As you can see, I acquired 100,000 or so links over the weekend - not bad. Clearly there was some sort of
  • Google SSL Search Is Here
    As expected Google on Friday launched the https version of Google search at https://www.google.com/. SSL Google Search allows you to search with less or no worry of people sniffing around to see what you are searching for. All this does is encrypt the searching you do, it stops once you leave Google and head over to a web site. I should note that https by definition prevents referrer data from being passed along. Here are
  • Google Keeps PacMan Logo Live & Adds Mute
    Google shocked their users in both a good and bad way this past Friday with the Pac Man Google Doodle for the 30th anniversary of the game. Google received so much feedback on the interactive game Doodle that they decided to keep it live at google.com/pacman. The bad feedback was mostly around the noise of the game. People, many of them, didn't like it, and wanted a way to turn it off. Google at some
  • Video Recap of Weekly Search Buzz :: May 21, 2010
    This week I covered the news on Google TV. Google should be launching secure and encrypted search this week. Yahoo Site Explorer is reporting a significant link drop, why? Bing is handing 301 redirects well. Google removed the only way to get to the old design. Google search bug hid the search query. Google must share AdSense revenue share with Italian publishers. AdWords added language support to the new keyword tool. Is Google Maps being
