Here is a recap of what happened in the search forums today, through the eyes of the Search Engine Roundtable and other search forums on the web.

I asked Google about it and they told me they really didn't - Google's statement was "When relevant, we do and will continue to surface high-quality evergreen content as part of the overall search results."
