This week in search, we cover how the IRS may have stopped Bing from crawling their site for some time. Should you be worried about doing HARO interviews because of acquiring bad links that can get you penalized in Google? Why do people label links dofollow, it is asking for it. Google added examples of what sneaky redirects are. Google’s Matt Cutts explained how to control your titles in the search results. Google sent out tons of SSL warnings via Webmaster Tools. Google+ is not dying says one Googler but if it did, how would that impact the search results? Google AdSense has a new update for their ad units. The Google AdSense ex-employee leak this week seems way fake to me. A black hat lists everything but still respects his competitor and thanked Google and Matt Cutts for better search results. One SEO and ethics student called Google’s practices on penalties unethical, immoral and even hypocritical. The new Android Google search app added parking reminders, indoor mall maps, in store product reminders and offline Google Now cars. That was this past week in search from the Search Engine Roundtable.
