(1) The first I named Adult Ads Displayed Within Google's AdSense Program? but it actually affects Yahoo as well. Basically, some people found Google AdSense ads that displayed adult oriented content, something that should not happen on AdSense. But what was amusing, was that after I posted this article, people noticed that when the Yahoo Publisher Network ads showed up, they were showing adult ads as well.
(2) If you were not able to load the ads in example one, then it may be because the Yahoo Publisher Network Ads Still Have Accessibility Issues, even after I reported it last Friday. Basically, some ISPs are not able to resolve the DNS information that hosts those Yahoo ads. This was first documented on August 31st, then acknowledged by a Yahoo representative on September 7th and is still an issue today.(3) The next issue is that Google's Site Operator Shows Sites Off Domain. It does, I have seen screen captures myself, showing someone searching using the site: command and Google returning results from sites off of that domain. I have pictures and more details at the Search Engine Roundtable.
(4) The final bug I found today was that AdWords Statistics Mixing the Search & Content Network. So you are an advertiser, you set a campaign to only run on Google's content network, but for some reason, your stats in AdWords shows impressions and clicks for that campaign in the search network. This bug is confirmed by Google but stated as a small tiny problem.
There you go, four bugs documented in the past twenty-four hours.Posted by Barry Schwartz on Sep. 12, 2006 | Permalink"
I have found a very similiar situation with the online directories, which pretty much do the same thing as the scrapers. My clients are in the medical field so the directories are just bought lists of doctors compiled into data directory lists with AdSense spread all over them.
It just complicates the seniority factor and the mass publication of a lot of data causes headaches when trying to do focused local SEO for dentists and orthodontists who are small one city shops. My client base is somewhere around 2000 and those directories get frustrating fast.Trackback
Last year, people started to notice that Google began showing "subtopic" or "subcategory" links below their listing, if they were the first in a Google search. Now, Google's finally confirmed the change as a permanent feature and given it a name: sitelinks.
Social Patterns dug into this a bit more. He determines they are "likely determined by traffic patterns." His findings in short:
Google snippet links do not return links outside of the home domain.
Google snippet link text can be determined from an image's alt text.
Google snippet links can be subdomains of the home domain.
Google snippet links are not determined by PageRank.
Google snippet links are displayed for the top result for a "brand" search or "domain" search. (For example, "zappos" and "zappos shoes")
