I see that Matt Cutts of Google is calling for link spam reports. I'm still very troubled by this paid links issue after all these years! I agree it's Google's right to penalise or promote any page/site in its natural listings, which represent Google's subjective opinion of relevancy.

It appears that, some time ago, Google removed details of results prefetching from its Webmaster guidelines while continuing to implement results prefetching in its search results.

So, Google, Yahoo, Microsoft and, more recently, Ask have announced the new "canonical" link type or, more colloquially, the rel=canonical tag. Much has already been written about this tag and its purpose: to help prevent duplicate content issues.

A big day here at SilverDisc. We have launched our new Web site at www.silverdisc.co.uk . While this is very much a version 1.0 release, we're very proud of it nonetheless. For too long our own Web site has been a bit of a "busman's holiday".

The Google Adwords trademark policy is aimed at balancing the interests of trademark holders, advertisers and internet users. Does it always do this, or can it sometimes provide a method for trademark holders to restrict competition and potentially cause harm to advertisers, internet users and Google itself? That's the billion dollar question.
