From Search Engine Land:

  • Google Reviewing “Not Provided,” Withholding Keywords From Organic But Not Paid Search Clicks When Google moved to secure search in October 2011, it was a blow to publishers, who began losing data about the search terms used to reach their sites. It also opened Google up to claims of hypocrisy, in that advertisers continued to receive the terms. Now, Google says it’s reexamining the issue and seeking a […]
  • Yahoo Goes Live With Yelp Local Reviews Last month the Wall Street Journal reported that Yelp reviews were being integrated into Yahoo search results.

Presumably the click-through rates (CTR) on the […]
  • Google To Publishers Concerned Over The Knowledge Graph; Searchers Still Need Your Content In the keynote session last night at Search Marketing Expo West, Google’s head of search, Amit Singhal tried to address the concern of publishers that their content is being scraped and used by Google’s Knowledge Graph, ending with the user not having to click on the search results to get the answer. Danny Sullivan, in […]
  • Drive PPC Revenues By Addressing The Bing Dilemma In February, comScore released their monthly analysis of the US search marketplace, reporting Google with a 67.6% share of the search market and Bing, which powers Yahoo! search, a 28.7% share.
