Bing taking its time to roll out in Europe, France is next

Today at the International Search Summit Peter Maxmin the Director responsible for Bing Search as well as Microsoft's Online network across EMEA had 20 minutes to talk about Bing.

In his presentation he showed some of the nice features Bing has with which it will try to get market share away from Google. They seem to have succeeded with that a little in the US, in Europe Bing still has to come through. Maxmin addressed that topic shortly. Bing will integrate in Europe step by step.... read more

Google Breadcrumbs launched: hierarchies now displayed

Google Breadcrumbs launched: hierarchies now displayed

This morning Google announced the newest way of showing where you are going when clicking on a search result. In stead of the 'regular' URL's string you now get breadcrumbs. This will have great impact on the way we use urls because the keyword rich urls are not shown anymore.

Google takes this step because many web addresses don't tell you well enough where you are going. The "URLs are too long, too short, or too obscure to add useful information." By adding the new text Google wants to give useful information about the page before you click on them.... read more



Google book-deal well received in Germany

Google book-deal well received in Germany

The Google book deal has been the talk of the town for a couple of months now. Originally Google wanted to scan and index every book on the planet, including books from different European countries, and including the so called 'orphan books'. The new proposed deal by Google last week is now well received in Germany, one of the biggest opposers. The publishers are now looking to cash in with Google.

In the new deal the Google Books project will only hold books coming from the US, UK, Canada and Australia. Books from Germany will be removed. A new US agency, the unclaimed works fiduciary (UWF), will have powers to republish the "orphan works."... read more

Twitter opens up people search for apps

Twitter opens up people search for apps

Twitter is becoming bigger and bigger and with that its becoming more difficult to find the people you want to follow (or add to your list). Twitter itself always has had the "Find people" option. With that you can search for a username, first or last name, business or brand and find those you want to follow.

Until now this option was only available on the Twitter website itself. Third party apps so far couldn't use this feature. Twitter has now announced that it launches the "Find People API". The release of the API will stimulate the use of lists even more.... read more



The bomb is back, Obama the victim

Mon 16 November 2009 16:00, Bas van den Beld

It was the biggest internet-joke of them all for a while, the Google bomb which put George Bush on the top position for the search "miserable failure". Google put a stop to the bombing but now faces another president being victim of a Google bomb.

Searchengineland saw Obama's whitehouse.gov page turn up at the number one spot when looking for "who is the failure". Now the result has dropped to number three with two Seroundtable results being on top, but the Google bomb is without a doubt back.... read more
