itunes-subscribe-video.pngThere is tons of important stuff taking place this week in the SEO space, so I ran through as much of it as I could in a short period of time. First, Google did their second PageRank update in a single month. Google also updated their image search algorithm and filter. Google Webmaster Tools is showing a lot more linkage data due to Caffeine. They also now allow a single Sitemap file for all content types. But some of the news sites in Google Webmaster Tools are slow to show new data. Google is mixing up 301 and 302 redirects. Google killed the IE output, killing Scroogle. GoogleBot is slow and fast, acting very sporadic these days. Don't use the meta refresh redirect said Google. Matt Cutts says never use the nofollow for internal links. BingBot is replacing MSNBot on October 1. Bing releases more advanced search operators. AdWords related ads can infringe on trademarks. BP got away with AdWords display URL violation. AdWords now shows merchant ratings in some cases. Google News was redesigned, many users hate it but Google will keep it. China and Google go at it again, I think Google did something lame. Google bought ITA and hopes to take over the travel industry. Happy Canada Day to our Canadian users and we showed off another Doodle this week. That was this past week's news at the Search Engine Roundtable.
