Does Google Need An Ethics Policy Like The New York Times

Does Google Need An Ethics Policy Like The New York Times

Google is really a publisher. It publishes its search results. It adds paid advertisements and the more you pay the more visible your Adwords will be. It is trying to maintain that the non-Adwords content is commercial free. However it realizes that big advertisers may well spend money to get higher in the organic results ( the publication side of the business). It needs to be visible in trying to preserve the integrity of that noncommercial content.

Google Makes Reader a Social Tool

Google Makes Reader a Social Tool

Search giant Google (News - Alert) this week has moved to make its Google Reader RSS tool a more social instrument by adding features that allow users to share content anywhere on the Web.
Google Reader will now constantly check favorite news Web sites and blogs for new content, where previously the tool only allowed feeds that users had registered for.

"As it turns out, there's all sorts of information 'out there' just waiting to be streamed, shared and otherwise consumed by you and your friends," wrote Jenna Bilotta, on the official Google Reader blog. "Now you can finally show all of your Reader friends that awesome talking cat video you found, your favorite grilled trout recipe or reviews of the best brunch places in your neighborhood -- all without a subscription."

Google Reader gets social features News

Google is making the Google Reader RSS tool more social, adding features that let users share content and add notes as to why they're sharing it.

The updates provide users with "bookmarklets" to share content from web pages from any site, even those that don't have a feed, Google said. Users can also select some text from the page before clicking on a bookmarklet to allow the selection to appear as the item's body.

"As it turns out, there's all sorts of information 'out there' just waiting to be streamed, shared and otherwise consumed by you and your friends," noted Google's Jenna Bilotta.

"Now you can finally show all of your Reader friends that awesome talking cat video you found, your favorite grilled trout recipe or reviews of the best brunch places in your neighbourhood - all without a subscription."

The updated Google Reader also provides a place for users to add notes with comments about why they are sharing specific content.

Beware: Google AdWords Phishing Attempts Continue

Beware: Google AdWords Phishing Attempts Continue

Emails disguised as official Google AdWords emails are being sent to advertisers asking them to update their billing information. When an advertiser goes through the link and updated their billing information, their credit card information is being sent to hackers across the globe. I have a copy of the email at the Search Engine Roundtable, where I first reported this back in March.
If you look at the link, embedded in those phishing emails, it might appear that you are taken to Google.com, but in reality, you are taken to a URL that looks something like this: http://adwords.google.com.fr4ck.cn/select/Login.
