Sedo.com and Sedo.co.uk Hacked, Hosting Malware on Site

It looks like Sedo.com and Sedo.co.uk, the search engine for domain names, has been hacked, and apparently is hosting malware on their web site.

comScore January 2012 Search Engine Rankings

Every month about this time comScore releases the search engine rankings data, and I report it here.

Microsoft Moves Synsup Labs Domain Names

In April 2011 I first reported that Microsoft had acquired 47 domain names related to something (a brand or a company) named Synsup Labs.

In an interesting acquisition today by Microsoft, the company acquired 47 domain names and has pointed them to the Bing.com search engine.

No SEO for Web Marketing Association Best Web Sites

Google second search box raises issues

When I heard about Google ss offering of a second search box in major retail sites that allow users to search within the domain itself, I immediately thought it was another way for Google to display ads, earn even more revenue and kick the competition to the sidelines.

Google Tests Site Links Search with Microsoft

From what I can tell, and from the short amount of testing that I have done, the search box appears when you search for Microsoft at Google.com.
