June 27, 2010

Pictures I posted yesterday via Twitter from the Pawnee Bill Wild West show have found their way into Google’s search results.

I Tweeted six or seven photos total so why did only three Tweeted pictures make Google’s Updates search results?

What factors determine which Tweets are indexed and published and which ones aren’t?

August 15, 2009

Although my site has begun appearing in Google search results again, for some reason only 196 of my 500+ pages @SearchMarketingCommunications.com are getting crawled and indexed.

Any idea why only a fraction of my site is getting crawled and indexed in Google?

What steps do I need to take to get the 300+ missing pages crawled and indexed?

Flickr Images in Google Search Results

May 28, 2009

Today while scanning Google web search results, I happened upon a Flickr image result displayed in line with Google’s regular search results.

As far as I can recall, I don’t remember finding Flickr images anywhere in Google other than in Google Image search before today.

Clicking the icon to see all public photos and videos tagged with the keyword as suggested took me to the Flickr site.

Once on the Flickr page, I was informed there were a total of 40 photos tagged with the keyword I initially searched for.

Will Google expand distribution of Flickr images within its web results further for people specific search like the one above?

Or will Google display Flickr images within its web search results  for an broadening array of keywords?

My guess is the images will be confined to people related keyword searches for the time being.

Several years ago Google launched Google Coop which let Google users subscribe to feeds from publishers who met Google’s publishing guidelines.

As far as I can tell, less than 100 publishers have participated in Google Coop which now appears to be called Subscribed Links.

Google Coop never really caught on but at the time I did subscribe to several feeds from technology information publishers.

I don’t recall subscribing to Google Coupon Search but the subscriptions list within my iGoogle account indicates I have.
