    I’ve seen a few comments that this is due to the Reuters-description that Google Finance shows for Apple having the word...

    Just over three months ago, Google launched the news keyword meta tag designed to let news publishers have a better chance of ranking for words they might not have included in their headlines.

    Last month, I’d asked Google how many publishers were using the tag. It declined to answer. But rival search engine Blekko crawls the web and is able to spot what pages have the...

    Dec 21, 2012
    A panda might by a a cute animal but for most people who have a website and get traffic from search or rather mostly from Google it's worse than a zombie.
