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.

This was a sad weekend - we lost a true brilliant mind in the SEO industry, someone who has advanced the industry leaps and bounds and someone who was always smiling - Russ Jones passed away.

Google AdSense link units seem to be officially gone. And much more. RIP Russ Jones.
