This week was a bit slow, due to the Memorial Day holiday but we did have a nice amount of significant changes this week. Google, yesterday, released a Toolbar PageRank update. I reviewed the changes with Google over the past month, including a more detailed explanation of the MayDay update. Google increased the title tag limit to 70 characters. Yahoo Search is becoming really unstable, according to Webmasters. Google let's you advertising your content network ads on the top 1,000 sites, the top one is Facebook. Google's Interest Based Ads are really in your face these days. The number one Google organic result is not worth what it was anymore. Google launched App Search in Google Mobile Search. Google was sued over their walking directions. I also displayed the Memorial Day badges, logos and themes from the various search engines. Next week is SMX West, we aren't doing live coverage, but we may do other things. That was this past week at the Search Engine Roundtable.
