Calling Europe: Holland, May 2009

June just started so it's about time we talked about May in Holland. This time with Bas van den Beld and Roy Huiskes.

In this podcast a couple of subjects were talked about. We started of with some social media elements added to a searchengine, talked about the relation between search and online bannering and discussed the Dutch law-system where a judge which made a strange ruling on a Google result. Finally we talked about a not specific Dutch subject but an interesting one: Bing.

We discussed the following topics concerning search in Holland:

Social and search
iLocal added some social elements to their search results. Is this where we are heading in the future?
Link (in Dutch):

Search and online bannering
iProspect researched the relation between search and online bannering and concluded that those who search click on banners almost as often as those who don't.
Link (in Dutch):

Judge rules over Google result
The website was judged being responsible for a Google result. A very strange case which needs a review we believe.

We discussed Bing, the new Microsoft search engine. Will it last? The first 'signs' aren't very good.
