Google SEO, Social Search, Kaspersky & AdSense & Doodle Issues

Google SEO, Social Search, Kaspersky & AdSense & Doodle Issues – This week, the bulk of the discussion in this recap is Google related. I talked about more Google Caffeine discussions, is it going live? Use a 410 status code for really strong 404s. Google launched answer highlighting in snippets. Google also released social search. Kaspersky blocked Google AdSense ads, again. Google is paying publishers less and less – and we try to figure out why. Search grows at 46% worldwide, Google grew even faster. Google Maps search added personalization, but does it slow you down. Google Reader tracks even non-RSS pages. Google messed up the Kuwait doodle and had controversy over Australia’s Doodle 4 Google competition. That was this past week at the Search Engine Roundtable.
