This week at the Search Engine Roundtable I covered that Google is now showing even more single domain results but making them more compact. Bing Search has updated. Google is indexing Flash files even better. How will Google tackle the exact match domain problem? Do you need help with your Google Instant Previews? You can now tell Google about it. There are also ways to turn off the previews. Google launched Hotpot, a local social search feature. Yahoo releases a new fun keyword tool named Yahoo Clues. Google is starting to power Yahoo Japan. Google expanded their AdSense general category blocking feature to more publishers. Google's phonebook operator no longer works due to it being a hassle. Google News is asking publishers to tell them who the original source is. That was this past week at the Search Engine Roundtable.
