itunes-subscribe-video.pngIt has been a busy week in search, which I tried to sum up all in about 13 minutes. First I went through how Google has changed how they classify subdomains, at least in the Webmaster Tools link tool - the question is, does it expand beyond that? Google has plans to renew their fight against content scraper sites. Google + one buttons are making it into main stream media as a way to increase your Google rankings - that scares me. Google said there are ways to block US users and still let GoogleBot access your content. Google said you should not worry about the priority attribute in Sitemaps. Google does not use DNS LOC for determining site geographic location. adCenter made changes to their ad relevancy and quality scoring, so your prices for ads may change. AdSense changed their approval process to a two step process. Google Places has a bug where your listing reads, "we currently do not support the location." Google has a different cursor bug where it changes your query as you type. I asked SEOs how they cope with being blamed by clients for bad rankings. Finally, one Google user said they will switch off of Google if they don't remove auto-complete and switch to - how funny. That was this week in search at the Search Engine Roundtable.
