This week I covered two interesting Google anomalies. The first is where brand type queries are showing mostly results from that brand's domain. The second is Google is showing only Google pages for some search results. The big news this week is that Bing is now powering Yahoo fully in the U.S. and Canada. With that, Site Explorer, BOSS and Search Monkey are changing. Google added a new way to verify you site in Google Webmaster Tools. comScore released their search market share report. Bing News can drive nice traffic, that is if you can get included. Facebook does place check-ins, like Foursquare. We had lots of logos to share with you this week. Finally, SES San Francisco was this week, which is why I act so tired in the video. That was this past week at the Search Engine Roundtable.
