Top 7 Search Happenings January 2007
Monday, January 22, 2007
Last month Yahoo topped our list of Top 7 Search Happenings of the Month for December. Can they do it again this month? Here are the top search stories of the month for January 2007. Of course there is still a week left in the month, but should there be some blockbusting news in the final week, we'll just update our list. :)

January has been a fairly eventful month, here are the biggest stories of the month in the world of search.

#7. Yahoo acquires blog community site, MyBloglog
#6. Google updates ring in 2007
#5. Google Blacklist Contains Confidential Information - User Data is leaked
#4. Microsoft looks to compete with Google Analytics by launching free analytics dubbed "Gatineau"
#3. The Open Directory Project arises back from the dead as DMOZ begins accepting directory submissions again
#2. Yahoo Index Update - SERP titles are affected, spam sites are targeted and site owners begin to panic.
#1. Wikipedia targets SEO spammers and implements no follow on outbound links

Yahoo narrowly missed the top spot for a second consecutive month. Yahoo has been quite active to start 2007. Could they be positioning themselves for a merger perhaps?
