iii)    URL Removal Request Update

You can now see URL removal requests submitted by other users for any sites you own, and revoke them if necessary. In the past, if another webmaster for your site mistakenly removed a URL on your site it was a difficult process to undo the request.

Next Generation Architecture for web Search - Google’s Caffeine

On 10th August Google ask people to help and test there next generation infrastructure. This change was made to improve indexing capability, speed and accuracy of the search results.

Google has provided a preview of the new infrastructure at www2.sandbox.google.com and invited web developers to try searches there.

This is an experiment by Google and Matt Cutt said that the Caffeine update isn’t about making some UI changes here or there. Currently, even users won’t notice much of a difference at all. This update is primarily under the hood: Google is rewriting the foundation of some of their infrastructure. But some of the search results do change, so they wanted to open up a preview so that searchers and web developers could give them feedback. They only want feedback on the differences between Google’s current Search results and there new system.

Here’s How to give them feedback.

Do a search at http://www2.sandbox.google.com/ and look on the search results page for a link at the bottom of the page that says “Dissatisfied? Help us improve.” Click on that link, type your feedback in the text box and then include the word caffeine somewhere in the text box.

SEO is a constantly evolving industry. It needs to adapt to the changes as search engines change their criteria and the web changes with new applications. These are some of the major changes in the field of SEO. Let’s wait for the next update in the SEO world.
