itunes-subscribe-video.pngI am doing this video recap remotely today via St. Louis, so please excuse any issues. This week we covered how some SEOs claimed they were treating their customers poorly in order to get publicity, because any publicity, even bad, helps with Google rankings. Google then combatted them and others by degrading really bad customer service merchants. Google and Bing confirmed they use social factors, such as Twitter and Facebook in ranking the web results. Google promised to improve their DMCA and copyright handling. We ran a poll asking if Google should remove Q&A sites form the search results. Google Places now asks owners to verify edits made on Google Maps. Google is testing "searches related to" above the AdWords Map. You can't remove access to others from your Google AdSense console. Google added the report offensive images back to the image search. Google had a nice logo for Rosa Parks and Yahoo did Worlds AIDS day logo. Google has a special Chanukah easter egg, it's cool. SphinnCon Israel's agenda is now live, so sign up. We launched a brand new look and system this week. And yesterday was our seventh birthday, I've been covering search for seven years! That was this past week at the Search Engine Roundtable.
