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:

  • July 2010 Google Webmaster Report
    This is our monthly report on changes that took place at Google over the past 30-days or so. You can see our June 2010 report and see it was all about the May Day update and possible signs of Caffeine being live.

    A very happy fourth of July to all our American readers! There are some very creative logos from the search engines today.

Goldberg is best known for a series of popular cartoons he created depicting complex devices that perform
  • Video Recap of Weekly Search Buzz :: July 2, 2010
