Around The Search Engines Jan 07 2008

Oh lord not Monday again! Don't worry don't get overwhelmed by with all the news that rushes in fro the weekends. Here's a nice way to sit back and read the true gems that probably will affect you the most in another round of Around The Search Engines:

Posting Less Frequently Can Lead to Higher Reader Engagement - ProBlogger

Wikia Search Alpha Launched - Google Blogoscoped

Wikipedia creator Jimmy Wales has finally launched the alpha release of his search engine Wikia Search to the public, and the Internet is buzzing with early reviews and thoughts. Unfortunately, the consensus so far (according to Techmeme) is that it’s pretty bad. But at least they know it.

Displaying the most relevant refinements - Google Custom Search

Highlights from the SEW Blog: January 1-4, 2008 - SE Watch

We've collected all the search marketing news from selected posts to the Search Engine Watch blog in the past week, along with recent search-related headlines from around the Web.

Social Bookmarking Submission Tools - Toprank Blog

TopRank started using social bookmarking as an active/passive content promotion method several years ago. In fact, here is a podcast interview I did with Rok Hrastnik in March 2005 discussing SEO, tagging and bookmarking. We’ve also been fairly successful at promoting a social bookmarking tool for blogs over the past 18 months or so, gathering 50,000+ links.

That's it folks. Now site back relax and enjoy another week with me here at All About Google Adsense.
