  • Video Recap of Weekly Search Buzz :: October 22, 2010
    This week at the Search Engine Roundtable I cover a nice amount of topics, I wanted to highlight the most important items.

  • Google Stop Indexing Blogger (Blogspot) Posts
    For a couple days now, I have been spotting random threads with complaints from Blogger aka blogspot.com bloggers that Google has stopped indexing and ranking their new blog posts in Google web search.
