We have compiled the latest news and updates from the big three, Google, Bing and Yahoo as it relates to SEO and the search engines overall.
WHAT’S NEW THIS WEEK WITH GOOGLE:
Hide sites to find more of what you want
Google now allows users to block sites that they don’t want to see in their search results. If you’ve clicked on a result and it wasn’t what you were looking for and you click back over to Google to search again, you’ll now see a new option to block that domain from future search results. The link is next to “cached” and reads “Block all example.com results.”
WHAT’S NEW THIS WEEK WITH YAHOO!:
