In this week's video recap, I go through the July 2010 Google webmaster report. I also discuss how Yahoo has dramatically changed their algorithm, but no one really knows why. Google banned AdWords help and it is really causing issues with support related concerns. Google is now showing related video video icons in the search results. Google dropped support for using one double quote when searching. Google had a bug when searching with a hash, it resulted in going through a redirect notice. Would you buy a link from Text Link Ads? An AdSense publisher's account has been hacked for 3 months and he is out tens of thousands of dollars. People are abusing the DMCA policy at Google AdSense. AdWords keeps adding new tabs in place of reports to the AdWords console. Google is testing maps above the AdWords ads. Google renewed their license in China after a huge political issue. People really hate the new Google News design. Google's Favicon was inspired from a toilet? We had an awesome video game day logo. Google had a logo for Frida Kahlo. And we show cased tons of logos for July 4th. That was this past week at the Search Engine Roundtable.
