itunes-subscribe-video.pngBusy week in search this week - with Google confirming a Panda update, which I labeled 3.2. Bing seems to really love regional sites in their regional indexes. Google added a bunch of new features to Webmaster Tools, from testing sitemaps, new reports for sitemaps, a new definition for "average" position in the reports and new and improved download options. Google also added a spam report form for rich snippet spamming. I asked a question that got me in trouble, I asked, is on page SEO dead. Google added public alerts to Google Maps. Microsoft pubCenter has a bug where it shows some payments as undeliverable. Google has a new consolidated privacy policy, but it does look scary. Will the privacy policy lead to people canceling their Google accounts? I doubt it. That was this week in search at the Search Engine Roundtable.
