Search Headlines – Google, Spam and Podcasts

My brain is a little spent today but here are the search headlines you should be aware of:

  • Andy Beal summarizes the long press release Google sent me which lets us all know that they’ve done it again. Somehow Google has nearly tripled their fourth quarter profit and brought in a net income of $1.03 billion. I have no words. I mean, surely at some point Google will already have dibs on all the money and market share in the world and they won’t be able to triple anything anymore, right?
  • ShoeMoney interviewed Brian Axe of Google AdSense and got him to dish about the policy changes at Google AdSense, search engine arbitrage, YouTube revenue sharing, site revenue sharing and tons more good stuff. If you’re one of those people who can actually comprehend what you’re hearing in a podcast (I’m not), we encourage you to go listen to the audio version of Jeremy’s interview; if not, check out the blog.
  • Matt McGee does a good job breaking down The 4 Most Underrated Pages on Your Web Site (via Andy).
  • Dark Reading outlined Seven Ways to Be Mistaken for a Spammer (via /.)
  • The SEO Blog dishes with Scott Smith on the subject of Web copywriting.

And some fun stuff for good measure:

  • DazzlinDonna provides comfort in that I’m not alone in my opinion on the podcast. Don’t get me wrong, I understand why people like them; I just don’t have the attention span to listen to one without getting distracted.
  • I know it’s not Friday, but I’m going to point to Boing Boing anyway. Today is National Gorilla Suit Day so if haven’t done your part, please go home and change. Thank you.

This is really interesting, You’re a very professional blogger.

I expect to be there and I think we should administer a test before letting a MyBlogLog spammer like Andy in. ;-)

Yes, can we get a show of hands of bloggers attending SES NYC? I think I’m going. If not me, then Susan. One of us will be there.

Kim — Can we travel in a pack and wear matching blog pool T-shirts?

Are we all going to NYC SES? The “blog pool” of Lisa, Kim and Matt McGee would welcome more members :)

Andy so right. I’m really dangerous with a camera. Just ask Danny S. and Matt Bailey. They’ll tell ya.

Matt — Quiet you. :) Hmm, an RSS-style Google cash feed? You know, I think you’re on to something there! :)

Jeez, am I interrupting something here? Want me to go comment on the next post so you two can chat in private? :-)

surely at some point Google will already have dibs on all the money and market share in the world and they won’t be able to triple anything anymore, right?

I am pretty certain that the next step will be a direct feed, kinda like RSS, that pulls dollar bills directly from the San Francisco Mint.

Well, stop replying then. ;-)

Hmm, I don’t think we’re supposed to be using the comment section of the BC blog to have a conversation…I hope no one’s watching.

Are you kidding? I think that was one of the first times I had met Kim. I could barely look her in the eye at that point. Plus with Barry Schwartz sitting in front of me? Yeah, I was totally “focused” on my laptop! :)

I can’t believe you left poor Kim to figure out that camera on her own. ;-)

It’s easy. Just look for this.

You can thank Barry. :)

Got it. Look for someone in the middle of the room, with a laptop. That should be easy to find. ;-)

Andy — We shall be sure to chat it up at the next conference! I had a few Andy spottings in Chicago but I’m shy and hid behind very large objects. However, I’m easy to pick out in a crowd. I’m the girl sitting middle center with my face in my laptop. :)

Thanks for the links. If we don’t meet at the next conference, I’ll be very upset. It’s a scandal that we’ve not had a chance to chat! :-)
