Social bookmarker Del.icio.us, which was acquired by Yahoo a while ago, apparently doesn’t want their homepage to be indexed anymore – it includes the following line:
<meta name="robots” content="noarchive,nofollow,noindex"/>
Might be a glitch due to a global template change – while disallowing the indexing of sub-pages may be wanted in certain contexts*, it’s hard to imagine Yahoo also wants to remove the Del.icio.us homepage itself from search engines. (I wonder if this will also kill their PageRank 8 in the long run?)
[Thanks Tadeusz Szewczyk for pointing this out!]
*E.g. Yahoo may not consider the Del.icio.us subpages to be index-worthy (Google indexed over 3 million at this time), or they want to shine by being the only one to search through them.
We’re friends, UFC and Google Video. And because we’re such great friends, we’re able to offer you two free UFC shows, exclusively on Google Video.
The Ultimate Fighting Championship, though becoming more tamed throughout years, is one of the most brutal, no-holds barred fighting show on the scene, often clashing two completely different kinds of fighters/ fighting styles. Google’s video shows Tito Ortiz vs. Ken Shamrock and runs a little over 36 minutes.
Sometimes, Google News is NSFW (as is this link).
AP says Google “is in talks to acquire the popular online video site YouTube Inc. for about $1.6 billion in cash and stock, according to published reports.” I’ve seen the rumors pop up before but being repeated at AP gives them some more credibility...
Just recently, Google Video was spotted experimenting with more YouTube-like, community-oriented features. If they do buy the site I believe it wouldn’t be for technical reasons, but indeed to aquire content & community. Then again, you can’t just buy a community...
[Thanks Brinke Guthrie and Kent Dodds!]
