Linky Goodness, October 17
Today we’re mostly Googly in our linkiness.
- Let’s get our obligatory nonGoogle story out of the way first: Facebook wants to offer music, but they don’t want to tangle with labels, reports paidContent.org. MySpace recently launched its music service, which it owns jointly with participating music labels. Facebook, on teh other hand, has no desire to cede ownership in exchange for access.
- When the going gets tough: Google has called in reinforcements to tout the pending Yahoo/Google ad deal to the government—Google’s advertisers.
- Google launched profiles for its members last December, and now Google is finally allowing those profiles to be indexed in search engines. Search Engine Journal notes the possibility of a People OneBox in future SERPs.
- While Google started personalizing its results approximately forever ago (about a year and a half in tech years). Now they’ve finally added a link on SERPs explaining customized & personalized results
