Search Engine News Updates - Week of Jan. 8-15th 2007
Monday, January 15, 2007
Well as it seems to always be, the past week was a busy one for the search engines. As a result I wanted to post a few of the more important happenings in search over the past few days.

We'll start off with the fact that DMOZ is accepting applications again. Is DMOZ coming back from the dead? Only time will tell. Here's a list of some other search engine related news stories.
  • Search Engine Roundtable reports that The Open Directory Project is accepting submissions once again
  • MSN is testing a new analytics tool code named "Gatineau". Mediapost.com states that "...the technology is based on that of the Gatineau, Canada-based DeepMetrix Corporation, which Microsoft acquired last year. In the coming months, Microsoft expects to launch an invitation-only beta to test the tool..."
  • Google's "infrastructure updates" as we reported last week
  • Microsoft released an eye tracking study on the length of "snippets" used in organic results
  • Yahoo launched a mobile search service known as oneSearch

An iteresting week to the start of an interesting year for Search.
