Strange Online Google Adsense Ads - 2

This is the second part of stragen ads, you can read part one at my post Strange Online Google Adsense Ads - 1 . Below is the screen shot image of the new strage add.

Here in this ad title is "SEO, Internet Marketing Course" and descrption says "Live Project + IGNOU certification Limited time offer for Rs 8000".
Whats strange here is that IGNOU is the largest distance learning university in India and as far as I know IGNOU doesn't offer any kind of SEO certification. The person running this IGNOU SEO course seem to be a scam.

I'd like to advise all the SEO expert to check with IGNOU website or your nearest IGNOU study center once.

How Google Instant effects your online marketing campaigns

When google instant hit the google search results, it was the hot topics many people were happy and many disappointed with google instant. I remember one of my ex manager tweeted "Google instant user in me Likes it, SEO in me little worried".

Perhaps that was the response of most SEO experts in the world. I was just reading a nice article on the same topic and would like to share the article with you.

Impact of 'Google Instant' on Your Online Marketing Campaigns
On the 8th of September 2010, Google launched its Instant Search interface, which shows results as you type, in real time. Searchers, particularly from the Search Engine Marketing (SEM) industry, have reacted sharply to the new interface. Many users find the new interface distracting, even annoying.
Google Instant is being sold as a faster and better User InterfaceMatt Cutts from Google says that the change is more about rolling out a new User Interface (UI) rather than an algorithmic change. Matt attempted to allay the fears of the SEM industry by suggesting "SEO is not dead" but may change due to instant search query feedback to users, which in turn, may change their search behaviour. He believes that the searchers will diversify their queries within the scope of the original intent.
The effect of predicted query suggestions on user behaviorWhile Google claims that the Search Ranking Algorithm remains unchanged, the new feature will surely change search behaviour of users due to instant feedback mechanism. A lot of users are likely to select the predictive results, which fulfil their original intent, and stop typing further. Some users may get distracted from their original intent as 'irrelevant but interesting' results may lead to unintended searches. For example a user may digress into "home improvement loans" after typing "home improvement" instead of following his original intent of searching for "home improvement ideas."

Yahoo promoting Internet Explorer

You must have heard of recent news that Bing is providing search results for Yahoo. Many users reported observing same results in Yahoo & Bing. Now given the association of Yahoo & Microsoft I think Microsoft will get benefit to its other products and services. E.g. Microsoft browser Internet Explorer which is till now leading the browsers world but is facing a very tough competition from Mozilla Firefox backed by competitor google.

Check the imge belo and you will understant what I mean, yahoo is promoting IE in its sponsored results when no relevants ads are found.

Google bends to German privacy concerns

BERLIN – Google Inc. said Thursday it would double the amount of time Germans have to opt out of having their homes shown in its "Street View" feature, which has sparked a fierce public debate over privacy concerns.

Germans will now have eight weeks, instead of four, to request images of their homes be deleted, Philipp Schindler, Google's vice president for Northern and Central Europe said in a statement.

Google last week announced its plan to introduce "Street View" for the 20 biggest German later this year, raising concerns in this privacy-conscious country.

"We were aware of the fact that 'Street View' could lead to discussions in Germany," Schindler said.

He stressed that Google has committed itself to an extensive series of measures to protect people's privacy, "far beyond those in other countries."

At authorities' insistence, the company created an online tool Germans can use to request pictures of their homes be removed before the service's launch — something Google hasn't done anywhere else. "Street View" is currently available in 23 countries.

Many officials and politicians pressured the company to extend the deadline for people to opt out.

Germany's justice minister Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger welcomed the move, saying in a statement that "it is good that Google has doubled the time for objections to restore lost trust."

The online tool launched Monday and will now be available throughout October 15. Google Germany spokeswoman Lena Wagner said the extension will not delay the launch of "Street View", tentatively planned for November.

Wagner declined to say how many people had already asked to have their house removed from the database. Germany's consumer protection ministry expects tens of thousands to request that images of their homes be deleted.

The Mountain View, California, company also addressed another demand of German data protection officials by saying that data would be handled securely and deleted as soon as legally possible. Google also conceded to allowing officials to carry out inspections to ensure appropriate handling of the data.

"Street View" has also tangled with authorities in other European countries, including Austria and Spain, over privacy concerns.

The U.S. Internet giant lost the trust of many when it had to acknowledge this spring that technology used by its "Street View" cars had also vacuumed up fragments of people's online activities broadcast over public Wi-Fi networks for the past four years.

Google is facing legal inquiries in Spain and South Korea on suspicion the search company illegally gathering personal data while photographing city streets.

Spell Check and SEO - Interesting article

Found a very interesting article on SEO basic techniques titled Back to SEO Basics - Part 1, Spell Check and Content Analysis, article mainly focuses on why one should perform spelling check and how spelling mistakes can be avoided or tracked easily and effectively. In the last paragraph author Sana Smith says:

"More than 85% people click on "did you mean" link and will get redirected to the exact word search query. So from remaining 15% how much visitors will you get, will that be a quality visitor, and is this worth the effort? You can decide easily."

I'd like to add one thing more here, nowadays google has become even more smart, you will get spelling suggestions the moment you type some wrong spelling in the google search box, thus suggesting correct spellings before you hit the search button. Thus spelling check become lot more crucial. Check the screen shot below if you haven't seen google search spelling suggest till now.

Document Conversion without installing any software

Many a times we are unable to open a file becuase we dont have the reader for that kind of file on your system. Say for example PDF files, docx, vsd,xml and many more extesnions require particualr software ot be installed. And in case we dont have the software either we try to purchase that software of install a document converte software to conver files from one format to another.
Now all this can be done even without installing a software, I found a very good website that allows free of cost document conversions without any limitations on number of conversions. Please visit and you can convert files from one format ot another easily and quickly. I am happy with the unregistered use of the website but I think registerting for a free acount will have more advantages if you requyire to convert documents more frequently.

Few websites that you may try for document conversion:
  1. - convert muyltiple file formats
  2. - Allows pdf ot word, excel etc type of conversions. this one is best and I am using this website form last three years. (Avoid purchasing any paid pdf converter software like Hellopdf, pdf-file, 123pdf, 123fileconvertor, Docsmartz, Investintech, quickpdf, pdfkit etc - there is no fum purchasing these software when you can get all free)
  3. - In case you dont have internet connection or have limited access to internet then you can search for free document converter utilities, Flashpaper is one such free utility from adobe that allows you to convert word to PDF free of costs.
In case you are not sure of whic software to download don'r go by the reviews ver download portals more than 90% og the positive reviews are posted by the software companies. Contact me through comments at this blog and I will send you the review for the software or the software that best suits your requirements.

Duplicate content Penalty Doest Exist

As posted in my previous blog post IPL Cricket & SEO, one of the website from the search results has gone now. This means duplicate content penality does exist. IPL Twenty Twenty season 3 will start tomorrow and surely like previous 2 season this one will also be a successful sports event. Like last year I am sure most of the Bollywood producers other than low budgets movie producers will surely not like to relase any Hindi Movies till next one and half month.

I also have eye on how search einge will be behaving specially when youtube will broadcast live video of IPL matches.

IPL Cricket and SEO

IPL 2010 is beginning on March 12 and being a cricket player in the college time I've a great interest in cricket. IPL twenty twenty is about to begin and I have been a supporter of the Mumbai Indians team from the start of the tournament. Unfortunately the team was unable to do well in both the previous seasons.

Now comming to the reason why I am making this post at SEO blog is that, I just searched for Mumbai Indians to check latest updated from the team I support. Niow when i search "Mumbai Indian" in google. top two site in the results both are having same content in fact one website is photocopy of the other.

My question here is if google doesn't support duplicate content why both the site are enjoying the top rankings. One of them should be banned.


Now this is a query you all SEO experts needs to check and answer. :)

Please do post your comments.

Google co-founders to sell $5.5B combined in stock

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Google Inc. co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin are relinquishing some of their control over the Internet search leader with the sale of 10 million shares worth $5.5 billion at current prices.
Under a plan disclosed Friday, the longtime business partners will each sell 5 million Google shares during a five-year period that will commence with the first trade.
The sales will occur periodically to lessen the chances of hurting Google's stock price.
Page and Brin, both 36, will remain Google's most influential shareholders, although they will be losing some of their clout.
The two iconoclasts own a special class of Google stock that gives them combined voting power of about 59 percent -- enough to override the wishes of all other shareholders if they wanted. The duo secured this veto power to ensure Google remained true to their values, which are summed up in the company motto, "Don't Be Evil."
After the sales, the founders' holdings will be whittled to a combined 47.7 million shares with 48 percent voting power.
Falling below the 50 percent threshold might not matter because they run Google as a ruling triumvirate with the company's chief executive, Eric Schmidt, whose shares hold 10 percent voting power.
Although the trio acknowledge occasional disagreements, they insist they always work things out amicably. What's more, Schmidt, Page and Brin have agreed to remain at Google at least through 2024.
Executives and founders of companies commonly enter into predetermined stock trading plans to raise cash and diversify their investments.
Page and Brin each currently have about $16 billion of their fortunes tied up in Google stock. By their own choice, their annual salary at Google is just $1.
"They are both as committed as ever to Google and are integrally involved in our day-to-day management and product strategy," Google spokeswoman Jane Penner said. "The majority of their net worth remains with Google."
This marks the second time Page and Brin have sold big chunks of stock since Google went public in August 2004.
Three months after the company's initial public offering, Page and Brin filed an 18-month plan that divested 7.2 million shares apiece.
Back then, Google shares were trading around $169.40. The stock is worth three times as much now, closing at $550.01 Friday after falling $32.97, or 5.7 percent.

SEO in 2010

Hi All,
I am just wondering where SEO industry will be say couple of years down the line. With search engines getting clever day by, algorithms of search engine getting more complex. I am sure in this year article and blog publishing ill get some negative edge from google and publishing articles and blogs will not remain a successful search engine marketing stratgey more. It will work but to take the competitive edge you will need to work smarter with all the SEO practices you know. If you have any thing particular about search engine behaviour then do let me know we can have discussion on that.
