Hi everyone, welcome to yet another SpeedLink and I hope you all had a fun and productive week. This week, we had some real great stuff out there and one of the main topics that generated a lot of “buzz” is the Face Off between Google and Bing. Blekko has anounced this week that they are banning from their search engines “content farms”, while Google accused Bing of “copying” its search results. To counter, Bing Chief Engineer is saying that the reason the web is “full of crap” is because of Google AdSense, hmm.
Last week, I have also given you a preview of the upcoming blogging contest being organized by FamousBloggers, ComLuv, MyBlogGuest and iBlogZone. In case you missed that out, here is the pre-announcement made by Andy of ComLuv. If you are interested in being a sponsor, just let me know :).

Thanks so much for including Kiesha Easley’s guest post, 4 Ways to Inspire Others with Your Blog, on your list. I can’t say enough about her, and this post was very well received. I appreciate the link back to her post.

Nice to be included in this weeks roundup DiTesco.
I don’t know if I’d blame Adsense for all the crap though. I reckon it has more to do withe the fight for page rank and SERPS than anything else.
Hi Sire. I agree with you. AdSense obviously is not the sole “culprit” of this and the other things you have mentioned certainly contributes towards a more “polluted” SERPs.
Very kind of you to give my Bring IT! post a shout out here :). Thanks so much – I really appreciate it.
