Google Updates

Google has a couple new elements going on in its results pages. The first one is the addition of brand links for some queries.
In the ones I've seen, they appear near the top of the results, just below the top paid listings. They are not links to the sites of these brands, however. They are links to SERPs for queries that incorporate those brands into them. For example, clicking "Wilson" in the footballs example will take me to results page for "wilson footballs".

January 2009: SEO Yahoo and Search Update

Labels: , ,

TexTex at WebmasterWorld reported that he had seen both Yahoo and an Search Update.

He noticed Yahoo Search changes last January 18, 2009 afternoon, saying "Wew, seeing movement." Then he backed up by full member. Vimes said "I'm seeing something but not sure if I'd call it an update, the sectors I look something there is a shuffle." It may be the beginning of a Yahoo Update or it might be some sectors tweaks.

The last noticed was in November 2008 due to a Yahoo Update. Since then, there have been no confirmed of the Search Yahoo Updates. If having update now, would not surprising me, said Vimes. Update at front, there's a bit more discussion going on being that update was reported at webmasterworld. Textex explained this update "a complete overhaul." Full member, robzilla confirmed but cautioned that the update makes an improvement to their index. Later on, they noticed that clearing their cookies search again where "results reverted back" to their previous state. The results it was consider fresh results but with a few dozen reusults to see quality. You wonder what exactly is going on here. Try today.
