This week in search, I first apologize for how I sound and feel in this video. Google’s Matt Cutts announced they penalized a French link network named Buzzea. Google gave a warning to thin-content affiliates that they may be receiving a penalty. Google’s Matt Cutts said don’t use article directories for link building. Irwin Mitchell, the big UK law firm, was penalized by Google. Google seems to be offering long answers to specific questions asked in Google. Google added location answers as well. You can ask Google how far is between two points. Google’s Matt Cutts explained why old sites may not rank well forever. Someone sent Google SEO spam on how they can help Google’s rankings. Twitter added new useful search filters. Google lost in a patent case, they were ordered to pay 1.36% of their AdWords revenue to this company. That was this past week in search at the Search Engine Roundtable.
