Below is what happened in search today, as reported on Search Engine Land and from other places across the Web.

From Search Engine Land:

  • New Updates To Bing Ads Intelligence, Excel Add-In For Keyword Research And Analysis Microsoft has released an update to Bing Ads Intelligence, the free Excel add-in for keyword research and keyword performance analysis on the Yahoo! Bing Network. From the new ribbon at the top of the page (shown above), the Keyword Suggestions tool provides keyword and bid research in one place. Enter a handful of keywords, and the tool [...]
  • AdWords Advertisers Can Now Control Sitelink Details In Enhanced Campaigns When Google introduced sitelink details in February as a new feature in enhanced campaigns, the sitelink details were pulled from other ads in the campaign. Now, Google has announced that advertisers will be able to control the copy in sitelink details. New description fields have been added to both the pop-up window to set-up new sitelinks [...]

Carousels are an ineffective way to target user personas, which ends up hurting the site’s SEO and usability. In fact, at the recent Conversion Conference in Chicago, about 25% of the speakers mentioned carousels — [...]
  • Best Practices For Google Enhanced PPC Campaigns If you do any pay-per-click marketing, you are no doubt aware that on July 22, 2013 Google is transitioning all AdWords accounts from “legacy” to “enhanced” campaigns. Google gives account owners the option to make the switch over sooner, but after July 22 Google will make the switch for you. If you are curious about [...]
  • Social Tactics For The Search Marketer Search marketers tend to live in their own little world. They use their own language. In spite of these differences, search and social digital marketing disciplines are irrecusably connected.
