Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Video Recap of Weekly Search Buzz :: October 29, 2010
    This may be the worse video recap I have ever done, so I apologize in advance - just really distracted while doing it. I first talked about the major indexing issue with Blogger and Blogspot new posts that Google fixed this week. Google has algorithms that define which algorithms should be used at different times on different sites. Google is updating or really buggy, I am not sure. Google added a real time counter
  • Google Update or Bug: More Complaints Over Google's Search Results
    I am not sure what to call it but it seems there are more and more complaints on the Google search results this week.

    If you visit Google Turkey today at google.com.tr you will see a special doodle / logo for their Republic Day. The only issue is it appears to be the wrong flag! Here is a picture of the special Turkey Republic Day logo from Google: Now here is the Turkey Flag: Notice the red background with white inside, versus what Google has as a white background with red inside.

  • Facebook Drop Down On Bing Search? Yep, It's Rolling Out
    A couple weeks ago, Bing partnered with Facebook to add a more social experience to the Bing search results. I covered the details of what is coming over here.
