Google is always full of surprises. And here is their latest trick…
Google has opted to take the less is more approach with their menu options. Logically more searches for applications will help them push more google app sells. But wait… where is that awesome search tool for scanning blogs???
Apparently google thinks blogs should go under News now??? Wait there is more… A search for ‘pest control’ under blogs in the news down-line gives me this…
ALL NEWS BLOGS!! And google only cared to show me 8 results about pest control in the news blogs for this past week.
So Google silently sings Bye-Bye Bloggers?
Could it really be so? Are they just testing? Is this a simple oversight?
I hope for Tony’s sake that google doesn’t do away with the blog vertical search option. Otherwise, Tony, and a lot of other content marketers may find that blogging won’t lead them to millions. But hey, Tony, can still keep his award.
Just a pest control guy reporting on a few search bugs.

I’ve noticed the same thing – and it’s driving me crazy! I hope it’s not permanent!

One of the best kinds of PPC ads available today are Google’s remarketing display ads. What’s great about them is that you can segment them by behavior, so if people have been to your home page but not your sales page, you can direct them there. If people land on your shopping cart but don’t buy, you can run ads to send them back to the shopping cart and complete checkout. The power to segment is one of the most powerful advancements in marketing technology in the past century. I didn’t know this when I started but I called Simon 219-733-4687 and I got help. Now I make 22.37% more on my display advertising than I did before and I’ve been selling a lot more product.
