Interesting Search Posts from the Past Week
Thursday, December 24, 2009
We thought that we would revisit some of the interesting Search and SEO related posts from the past week as we catch up on news from a pretty busy year in Search.

Is Social Media Ruining Search Results? - great topic of dicsussion by Shari Thurlow.  In this post she makes some interesting comments:
  • One of my colleagues, David Naylor, stated earlier this year that one of the greatest skills that a search engine optimization (SEO) professional possesses is the ability to analyze search engine results pages (SERPs). I agree with him.  We too agree with this statement.
  •  I think the commercial web search engines are giving social media items far more attention and validation than they deserve. - Again we agree.
  • RE: Real time search and News: My question is: do these conversations truly deserve prominence on the front page of search results? Which is more important: the conclusion/consensus or the content that leads to the conclusion/consensus? Or are they both important? - We feel that they are both important and that this is what the masses are thirsting for.
The World Is Flat For Twitter, As In Global Growth Has Stalled - is Twitter beginning to run its course?  Perhaps but third party Twitter clients (i.e. Tweetdeck) are growing in popularity according to this post on TechCrunch.

Most Recent Facebook Common Stock Sale Values Company At $11 Billion - according to TechCrunch, the most recent shares of Facebook are being valued at $25/share which puts Facebook's value at around $11 billion. 

More People Around The World Get Their News Online From Google News Than CNN - whoa , we're on a roll with the posts from TechCrunch.  This articles states that, "in November, 2009, according to comScore, Google News attracted 100 million unique visitors worldwide, making it a larger news site than CNN (66 million) or the combined properties of the New York Times (92 million)."  Yet Yahoo News had 138 million unique visitors during the same time period.  How times have changed.

What Did Search Look Like a Decade Ago - this is a fun post by Bill Slawski from SEO by the Sea who revisits some screenshots from Search Engines from the past decade.  Man ASK Jeeves and Alta Vista looked alright but some of the others were/are just plain boring.

Who Walked, Google or Yelp? - The NY Times chimes in about the deal that fell apart between Google and Yelp.  How do you walk away from a half a billion dollars?  Well the folks at Yelp had their reasons.  Was Yelp holding out for another deal and more money?  Still waiting on official word from Google and Yelp.
