Video Recap of Weekly Search Buzz :: June 11, 2010

itunes-subscribe-video.pngThis week, I run through 15 or so topics in about 18 minutes. Google Caffeine is officially live worldwide now, this is not a ranking change like May Day. Google Webmaster Tools bug caused drop in impression and click reporting. Google added soft 404 reporting to Webmaster Tools crawl errors. Google Suggest now shows misspellings. Bing launched social search features. Bing un-launched (if that is a word) their Cashback program. Google released AdWords Campaign Experiments tool to help advertisers do better testing analysis. Google expanded Google Maps Tags nationwide. Yahoo sent out their final Yahoo Publisher Network payments. Google News dropped the Web Search button. Twitter's URL shortener may have an impact on link building techniques. Searchers hated being forced into the Google custom background image, so Google turned it back. SMX Advanced was this week, we covered 8 or so sessions - it was a great conference. Google didn't have a D-Day logo, I think that was a good idea. Google is now sporting FIFA logos worldwide, but a Jacques Cousteau Doodle in the US. Also check out the FIFA fever logos and themes at Bing, Yahoo,, YouTube and others. That was this past week at the Search Engine Roundtable.
