Hello everyone! Hope you all had a great week.
This week, what called my attention more, aside from the Gadaffi issue, which I prefer not to elaborate, was Wall Street Journal’s report about yet another attempt from Microsoft to acquire Yahoo. You all know that in 2008, Microsoft launch an unsolicited US$44.6-billion mega takeover bid for Yahoo. Such bid was rejected by Yahoo! founder and CEO at the time, Jerry Yang (WTF?). Since, Yahoo!’s shares have lost nearly 44% in value and should Microsoft be successful this time, that would be an awesome discount 🙂 Or, they are just lucky. What do you think? Do you feel that Microsoft will succeed this time and if they do, what will that add to users experience? Lot of questions, really. We’ll see.
Another noteworthy news is Bing saying that they are still using meta keyword tags as ranking signals. Thing is that they are using it to identify spammers, and not to improve rankings. So, if you are using meta keywords, you might want to read SearchEngineLand’s post about it.
