I heard today that another article is in the works that will cover some of the same topics we have kicked around.
Networkliq, whenever Im logged in google lists my location down to the little hamlet. Yet when I type in mycity plumber of mycity snipe removal service I get google places from Europe! This has gone on for about ten days. The city in Europe is larger than the namesake here, relevancy gone wrong again.
Tedster it's great google took action after an embarrassing article. A dirty business owner knew how to game google for the last two years when all that staff, all their computations and algorithms, all their phd's failed the google customer. I'd be embarrassed too. I guarantee they got a bunch of "spam" reports on this guy and they went right into the google toilet.
The big change for us is that bing and yahoo are converting. Bing continues to grow. Each tweak google makes the more the baseline for bing goes up. Google still dominates but for our b2b it's now consistently under 50% of search traffic from near 70 a year ago.
Facebook drove more conversions today than google.
I'd like to see the government look into the relationship between amazon and google. Maybe we can get the wiki leaks guy to get a few googlers to turn? Ha!
