itunes-subscribe-video.pngThis week in search, we published our monthly recap of search and webmaster related topics on Google. Bing announced Cortana, a Siri and Google Now version for Windows devices. Bing also launched 150 million new entities for their snapshot results. Google’s Matt Cutts explained how Google evaluates new algorithms and how PageRank and authority are not the same thing. We showed an example of a creative link removal request. Econsultancy is nofollowing guest posts, which is scary. Google Webmaster Tools Index Status report now separates out HTTP, HTTPS and subdirectories. GoogleBot was failing on the reverse DNS verification. Google UK now supports in-depth articles. Google is testing product images in the organic results. Google is pushing you to add app indexing to your Android apps. Google is retiring the regular PLA campaign type for shopping campaigns and they launched a new bid simulator tool for it. I also shared some of the April Fools Jokes and pranks from the search industry. That was this past month in search at the Search Engine Roundtable.
