1801: new post   Opera 11.50 "Swordfish" Now Available
Opera 11.50 introduces a new and novel type of browser extension: Speed Dial extensions. Instead of handy thumbnails and links to your top sites, you can embed your Speed Dial with extensions that keep you updated instantly on what is happening around the Web. Take weather updates, for example. Why click through to a website when you can get the current conditions live at a glance? Or, why not be the first to know the hot news of the day just by opening a new tab?

The new FTC investigation, by contrast, will examine fundamental issues relating to Google's core search-advertising business, which still accounts for the majority of its revenue.

In a letter dated June 10, the Democratic chairman and leading Republican on the antitrust subcommittee asked Google to provide one of the company's two senior executives before Congress's August recess.[br][br]The subcommittee would 'strongly prefer' Page or Schmidt at the proceeding, 'which will address fundamental questions of business operations rather than merely legal issues,' U.S. senators Herb Kohl and Mike Lee wrote. Kohl, a Wisconsin Democrat, is chairman of the Senate Subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition Policy, and Consumer Rights, and Lee, of Utah, is the panel's ranking Republican.

1818: new post   ICANN Approves .anything Domains
In the for-profit world, that means that instead of going to coke.com or nike.com, you might be able to go to drink.coke or justdoit.nike. Nonprofit groups could reserve the .school domain and hand one out to every elementary school. Cities could consolidate their online presence at .nyc or .losangeles. And interest groups could stake out their own corner of the Web by offering every auto junkie a .car domain name, every law firm a .law address, and every restaurant a site that ended with .food.

1822: new post   eCommerce: "Main Street Fairness Act" Proposed By U.S. Senator
There's a growing sense among state and federal lawmakers that the online sales-tax reprieve, once meant to support and nurture a fledgling industry, constitutes an advantage that Amazon, with 90 million customers and $34 billion in annual sales, no longer needs. Over the past year an escalating war over online sales taxes has spread to Texas, Connecticut, California, and dozens of other states. Later this month the battle will reach Capitol Hill. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) says he plans to introduce a bill, called the Main Street Fairness Act, mandating that all businesses collect the sales tax in the state where the consumer resides.[br][br]Such measures have been proposed and disregarded by Congress for years, but Durbin believes the winds are shifting. "This idea is overdue," he says. "Online retail sales are now very fulsome and are growing at the expense of local units of government."

1823: new post   Can Competitors Negative SEO Hurt You On Google?
A number of us have noticed that when we get extra links to our sites they actually fall in the SERPs and this seems to be confirmed by experimentation - OK, results may be skewed by algo changes but it seems pretty coincidental that on so many occasions a site falls very soon after the new links appear. This may mean that competitor's sites could be pushed down the SERPs by unscrupulous operators buying spammy links which are pointed at them.

1828: new post   Why Haven't Sites Recovered from Panda? Google Tries to Explain
In an exchange with Danny Sullivan during the keynote at SMX Advanced conference, Matt Cutts made some comments that address the topic of why sites haven't recovered, even if they don't exactly "explain" the reason:[br][br]DS: Has it changed enough that some people have recovered? Or is it too soon? [br][br]MC: The general rule is to push stuff out and then find additional signals to help differentiate on the spectrum. We haven't done any pushes that would directly pull things back. We have recomputed data that might have impacted some sites. There's one change that might affect sites and pull things back. [br][br]DS: You guys made this post with 22 questions, but it sounds like you're saying even if you've done that, it wouldn't have helped yet? [br][br]MC: It could help as we recompute data. Matt goes on to say that Panda 2.2 has been approved but hasn't rolled out yet.

We now support markup that enables websites to publicly link within their site from content to author pages. For example, if an author at The New York Times has written dozens of articles, using this markup, the webmaster can connect these articles with a New York Times author page. An author page describes and identifies the author, and can include things like the author's bio, photo, articles and other links.
