I don’t run site queries anywhere near as often as I used to, but I was just doing a few indexation queries to pull up some examples and came across this interesting “Google Promotion” for webmaster tools.
Just a few days ago I reported that I was included in a random test where I couldn’t create queries for less than 20 queries.
Now we have had Google Instant launch and people have been playing with it for 24 hrs or so.
No I am not talking about the WordPress plugin / service that gives you the keyword density of your blog posts and counts how many times you have used the same affiliate link in your blog posts every 250 words. Liz has a review of Scribe SEO that I agree with. I actually wrote one myself to post on SEOBullshit but pulled it, then I was going to post it here, then I decided if I can’t say anything nice don’t say anything at all.
I don’t need to pay $30/month to be reminded to include keywords in my titles, but then I am not the intended audience.
I am not an algorithm and patent geek to the extent of many of my friends & peers.
Dana last week wrote about the new SEOmoz experimental tools for LDA (Latent Dirichlet Allocation).
This is an extension of the tests Google seem to be doing with the number of search results that I spotted over the weekend.

One of the hottest stories of the weekend without doubt was Armand Morin revealing that a Google Adwords rep had told one of his affiliates, in an email, that he needed to fix Armand’s site or remove it from the internet for unacceptable business practices, or remain with his Adwords account suspended.
