401: new post   Google Pressures Yelp Over Reviews
"We are unhappy with the way Google uses our users' review on its Places page. However, there is no solution to the problem. [b]Google's position is that we can take ourselves out of its search index if we don't want them to use our reviews on Places[/b]. But that is not an option for us, and other sites like us, such as TripAdvisor, as we get a large volume of our traffic via Google search... We just don't get any value out of our reviews appearing on Google places and haven't been given an option other than to remove ourselves from search, how to improve this situation."

Social Search can help you find pages your friends have created, and it can also help you find links your contacts have shared on Twitter and other sites. If someone you're connected to has publicly shared a link, we may show that link in your results with a clear annotation.[br][br]Social search results are only visible to you and only appear when you choose to log in to your Google Account. If you're signed in, Google makes a best guess about whose public content you may want to see in your results, including people from your Google chat buddy list, your Google Contacts, the people you're following in Google Reader and Buzz, and the networks you've linked from your Google profile or Google Account. For public networks like Twitter, Google finds your friends and sees who they're publicly connected to as well.
