From Search Engine Land:

  • Google’s EU Censorship Removes Links For More Than Just Names On Their Own It turns out that those in the European Union asking Google to “forget” links they don’t like that appearing for searches on their names are also getting links removed for any search that involves their names and additional words, rather than just their names alone. Until now, it wasn’t clear that Google was removing links […]
  • Looks Like Google Hates “Jersey Boys” Just As Much As The Film “America” Filmmakers behind “America: Imagine the World Without Her” have accused Google of keeping their movie’s showtimes and locations from appearing in search results. As it turns out, “America” isn’t the only film not getting fair play from the search engine. Based on our research, if there is a conspiracy theory at work – it’s not exclusive to […]
  • Yelp Joins Effort To Undo Current Google-EU Antitrust Settlement Yelp has been an increasingly vocal critic of Google for several years. Now it has joined a group of companies opposing the European Commission’s current antitrust settlement proposal with Google. Originally Google and Yelp were partners.

Recapping the successes of this past year […]
  • Study: Why, When & How Often Google Indexes Individual Tweets Figuring out when and why Google indexes a specific Tweet has long been a conundrum and point of angst for many SEOs. Of course Google does index Tweets, but the methodology has seemed like a total crapshoot — until now. The good folks over at Stone Temple Consulting have attempted to crack the Twitter indexation […]
  • How To Improve Shopping Ad Performance & Quality Score In AdWords By late August, Product Listing campaigns for AdWords will be retired in favor of Shopping campaigns, so if you haven’t started migrating, don’t delay much longer. You can run both campaign types simultaneously, so start tweaking Shopping campaigns now so that they’ll be performing great by the time PLAs go away later this summer. In […]
  • Google Maps Adds Distance Measuring Feature Google has quietly announced on Google+ that they have added the distance-measuring feature to the new version of Google Maps. The feature allows you to draw points on Google Maps to see how far in distance (feet/miles/etc) it is from one point to the next. This feature was available on the old version of Google […]
