  • Petits fours in your search results
    November 17, 2010
    Webmaster Level: All

    Recently we made a change to show more results from a domain for certain types of queries -- this helped searchers get to their desired result even faster. Today we’re expanding the feature so that, when appropriate, more queries show additional results from a domain. As a webmaster, you’ll appreciate the fact that these results may bring targeted visitors directly to the pages they’re interested in.

    Here’s an example: in the past, the query [moma] (the Museum of Modern Art), might have triggered two results from the
  • Introducing Boutiques: a new way to shop for fashion online
    November 17, 2010
    The way we shop for fashion is different from how we buy cameras—especially online. With fashion, reviews and specs are less important; fashion shopping is about discovering something that fits your taste and feels right. The web works well for buying cameras and other hard goods but for soft goods, such as clothing and accessories, it’s not the same as shopping in a store.

    What’s more, the market for soft goods online is growing tremendously. A year and half ago, our team (which at the time was part of Like.com) started to wonder if we could

  • Getting to know you at AdSense in Your City: Seattle
    November 17, 2010
    Last week, three other AdSensers and I went up to Seattle for our sixth AdSense in Your City event. After visiting Mountain View, Santa Monica, Chicago, New York, and Boston over the summer, we didn’t want our publishers in the Pacific Northwest to feel left out!

    Greeted with beautiful weather on Wednesday, we spent the day at a coffee shop meeting those of you who were free to drop in for a one-on-one consultation. Over pastries and cappuccinos, we chatted with publishers about ways they can earn more with AdSense, learning their stories and

  • New Japanese 3D cities available in Google Earth
    November 17, 2010
    Today, we’re happy to announce that three more Japanese cities are viewable in 3D in Google Earth: Yokohama, Sendai and Saitama.

    Sun rising over Yokohama.

    You can now tour photo-realistic, 3D buildings in these cities without leaving your house—or climbing aboard a shinkansen.



    If you’d like to extend your virtual stay in Japan, you can take a tour of Tokyo, Kobe, Osaka or Kyoto, which are also available in Google Earth’s 3D Buildings layer.

    We want to thank the many users who modeled and contributed 3D buildings for these Japanese
