Video Recap of Weekly Search Buzz :: April 8, 2011

Apr 8, 2011 - 12:00 pm 0 by

itunes-subscribe-video.pngThis week at the Search Engine Roundtable we gave our monthly Google SEO webmaster report. We also discussed possible early signs of a new Farmer / Panda rollout. Google smacked down a webmaster after complaining about the update. Google's Matt Cutts also gave advice on what to do about stolen content. Bing had a possible update this week. Children were targeted in a sick porn search spam technique. We asked if Google uses SSL validity in their rankings. I covered Tedster's top ten SEO lessons from Angry Birds, the game. Can you use Google Custom Search to validate a penalty? Google added phone support for US and Canadian AdWords advertisers. Google dropped position preference as a bidding option in AdWords. Google removed local search trend data from the keyword tool. Should Google filter derogatory search suggestions? We have a picture of the Google "Clusters" design. Try searching for "tilt" on Google on your iPhone or Android phone - it is a missed April Fools joke. Google's Ice Cream Sundae logo was a big hit for me. That was this past week at the Search Engine Roundtable.
