Calling Holland August 2009: Newspapers, search & admarket
Bas van den Beld, Roy Huiskes and Eduard Blacqueire had their monthly talk again about what went on in Search in the Netherlands. A week late, so there were some September topics discussed also.
As usual the three Dutchmen talked about three topics: the failed redesign of a Dutch newspaper website, Admarkt Mini's and finally a people search engine.

We discussed the following topics about search in Holland:
Dutch newspaper forgets to add search to their process
The Dutch newspaper AD restyled their website in a format their new owners already used in Belgium. They however forgot to put search into the process and lost lots of links, pages and visitors.

Marktplaats starts with AdMarket Mini
Hollands' own e-Bay, one of the biggest sites in the Netherlands, Marktplaats, is starting to use AdMarket Mini's. These are Adwords-like adverts which can even link to your own site. Eduard explains.
Tribal Talk (Dutch)
Wie-o-wie restyles their website
Dutch People search engine wie-o-wie.nl restyled their website and added new features. The changes are being discussed but also some possible legal consequences.
