1802: new post   AdSense And Facebook Like Button Bug '?fb_xd fragment' May Result In Account Ban
The only unusual thing that I could find was an amazing raise on the number of times the page "?fb_xd_fragment=" was opened on that golden period. For those who don't know, that's an URL that shows due to a bug on the Facebook Like button, which doesn't support some browsers.

1806: new post   Google Launches Chromebook Laptops With $20/Month Option
Today, we're announcing the first Chromebooks from our partners, Samsung and Acer. These are not typical notebooks. With a Chromebook you won't wait minutes for your computer to boot and browser to start. You'll be reading your email in seconds. Thanks to automatic updates the software on your Chromebook will get faster over time. Your apps, games, photos, music, movies and documents will be accessible wherever you are and you won't need to worry about losing your computer or forgetting to back up files. Chromebooks will last a day of use on a single charge, so you don't need to carry a power cord everywhere. And with optional 3G, just like your phone, you'll have the web when you need it. Chromebooks have many layers of security built in so there is no anti-virus software to buy and maintain. Even more importantly, you won't spend hours fighting your computer to set it up and keep it up to date.[br][br]At the core of each Chromebook is the Chrome web browser.[br][br]Chromebooks will be available online June 15 in the U.S., U.K., France, Germany, Netherlands, Italy and Spain. More countries will follow in the coming months.

"I have a tool that I developed which is browser based and queries Google for allinanchor, allintext and allintitle for the top ten SERP results for a given keyword. [br][br]For the last five years it has worked fine but Google is now getting more aggressive and banning my IPs almost immediately.

1818: new post   How To Move Part of an Established Site to a New Domain
I intend to move one language of this website onto a new domain. I was thinking to do 301 redirects from all old pages to all new pages and of course update the sitemaps accordingly. This way, Google should understand that my pages changed location and will index the new ones. But, it will probably exclude my webpages from SERPs, at least for a period.[br][br]How can I do this move, in order to make it as painless as possible for my site?

Make no mistake about it: Panda is Google's way of reminding would-be corrupters and despoilers of the Word Wide Web search industry, an industry that Google "owns" (or at least thinks it does), that payback is a bitch, that the time for payback is now, and that the payback penalties may be severe.

1825: new post   Panda Metric : Google Usage of User Engagement Metrics
I am continually surprised at some in the community that point to a couple of individual metrics as 'the ones' that caused xyz to happen in the most recent update. I think it is time to look at the greater picture of data that Google has available.[br][br]Eric Enge had a presentation at PubCon Austin that he felt Panda pumped up 20% user engagment metrics into the algo. It really got me thinking about this aspect indepth. I started to put together a list of possible data sources google could use as metrics (signals), and I was pretty surprised at how large a list it became with very little effort.

1833: new post   Sony PlayStation Network Hack Attack May Have Stolen Personal Data
Although we are still investigating the details of this incident, we believe that an unauthorized person has obtained the following information that you provided: name, address (city, state, zip), country, email address, birthdate, PlayStation Network/Qriocity password and login, and handle/PSN online ID. It is also possible that your profile data, including purchase history and billing address (city, state, zip), and your PlayStation Network/Qriocity password security answers may have been obtained. If you have authorized a sub-account for your dependent, the same data with respect to your dependent may have been obtained. While there is no evidence at this time that credit card data was taken, we cannot rule out the possibility. If you have provided your credit card data through PlayStation Network or Qriocity, out of an abundance of caution we are advising you that your credit card number (excluding security code) and expiration date may have been obtained.

YouTube will imminently launch a movie-on-demand service charging users to stream mainstream Hollywood movies off the world's largest video sharing site, TheWrap has learned.

"...introducing Instant Previews for Ads as well. Thanks to this new feature, you can now get a preview of the site that hides behind text ads on Google Search without having to click on the link and without leaving the search results page. [br][br]For advertisers, who generally pay Google per click on a text link, this should be a welcome new feature, as it will allow potential customers to see a preview of the site's landing page without having to click on an ad (and hence costing the advertiser money). Advertisers won't have to pay for clicks on the Instant Preview button. [br][br]Judging from today's announcement, these previews will currently remain limited to ads on Google's own search results pages and will not appear on third-party sites that use Google AdSense."

"For years, I have simply blocked the long query string URLs via the robots.txt file (The long query string URLs have a "virtual" directory in the URL, so I just block that virtual directory). [br][br]But with "trust" being such an important issue after the Panda updates, I wonder if it might be better to unblock those URLs in robots.txt and just let the canonical tag take care of it. [br][br]In webmastertools, under crawl diagnostics, it lists something like 700 URLs blocked by Robots.txt, and if it is something that is being measured by google, I can't help but think that they are somehow using that information for something."
