Paid Links, Yahoo Site Explorer, Google Webmaster Tools, PageRank, Duplicate Content and Search Ads. Chris had a new baby girl, congrats Chris! In this show, Ben and I chatted about the big October paid link debate and noticed that most SEOs won’t stop buying link. Yahoo’s Site Explorer tool is having some major quirks. Google Webmaster Tools has new features including Sitelinks management, now with 8 Sitelinks. There was a Google link and PageRank update. Ben talked about duplicate content issues. We discussed Google’s improvements with proxy hijacking. Yahoo enabled blocked domains. Google has a duplicate URL issue still.
