Here is a recap of what happened in the search forums today, through the eyes of the Search Engine Roundtable and other search forums on the web.

Check out the weekly SEO video recap, it was a busy week. Google is also showing ads for Amazon Prime and Nike membership. Google Search tests posts from X. Google has a new way to survey search results. Bing is testing shopping filters. And a weird story on Google not using Sistrix's virus checker. Good weekend all!

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

Other Great Search Threads:
