Do not use domain name : Google banned domains

On 30th June 2011 Google Banned domain and it resulted all the subdomains got delisted from google search results. This was a very big loss for many bloggers who was depending on free domains from All the hardwork done by the hardworking bloggers is lost now. This is one of the reason why you should not rely on free domain names and hostings. banned

As we all know that names were badly used for spamming purpose and they were unable to work on this regard hence google was left with no choice than to penalize this domain. Now the people who were using service are left with no other option that to move to either paid domains or some other free subdomain service. But the worst part is that the entire work done for backlinking and other off site SEO works is lost with this move of google banning domain.

Those who are on blogspot originally can very well use the blogspot subdomain and continue the the blogging but i suggest you to get a nice domain for you. You can get a domain name just for a dollar from godaddy.

Google street view launched in India and its starting from Bangalore, Mumbai and New Delhi

Last month Google Launched its street view vehicles in India

This was welcomed as well as criticized by many people across India. You opinion may vary from others and this post is not meant to influence your opinion. I would just provide the facts that i have.

People were concerned about their privacy and some people would not like to logged into the camera view. Not a problem. Google is having a very good privacy policy here. They are having their own algorithm to hide sensitive data such as faces and registration number plates of vehicles. Still if you want that some part should be totally blurred/removed then you may always use the report link present in the bottom of the screen. I personally checked how effective is their algorithm and found the result shown below.

As you can see the face is blurred and its effective enough. Still if you wish then you may use the link “Report Problem” and fill the form. They will act upon your request. Please note that only publicly accessible places will be made available through Google Street View.

Below is the video of the launch of the vehicle mounted with 360 degrees camera to take panoramic view of the streets

What are your views about this? feel free to leave you inputs in comments. Thanks for reading my post. Your friend Vivek Sinha Anurag will be back with more soon. Please bookmark this blog if you like it so that you may come back in future.

Google Panda- The untold secrets

Today i am going to disclose some secrets of google panda. Please do not ask me the sources as i am bound not to disclose them.

What is Google Panda?

It is a new algorithm announced by Google. It’s aim is to fight against content farms (duplicate content website) and bring up the blogs/site with original content and fight against the website that contains low quality articles,blog and simply copy and paste the description from other website to their website to increase the search engine rankings.

What are it’s effects?

On 24th Feb Google launched Panda and it slapped many websites by penalizing them in terms of search engine rankings and de-indexing as well. Many site owners complained that even though they had genuine contents but still their site was affected. No doubt it was not 100% success because i read in blogs that people found loopholes to bypass and gain rankings again.

On 12th May 2011 Google launched the Panda update and it badly affected many websites with bad contents. But it is still doubtful as it affected mainly UK websites and major UK websites were slapped badly. You may want to read more here.

How Google Panda Works?

Most of you people know and believe Google search engine is better than all other in the market. But very few of you might be knowing the secret behind the success. The main reason behind the success of google search is not only their unique algorithm but also huge amount of manual work in background. Its true because i have worked for one of the companies which hire people as freelancers to work for google. [Recently they also started working for microsoft]. The people are selected for work after multiple rounds of exams. They are given proper training before starting the work and they are paid at rates @per hour.

The Secret

Recently before rolling over the Google panda, these companies trained their freelancers to identify sites with poor quality articles and duplicate contents. After passing the algorithm the work comes to these people for final touch. This make sure that no such sites gets bypassed. This makes Google Panda a deadly weapon against such sites.

    China blocks Google, accuses google of spreading porn

    In the recent actions take by chinese govt, they have blocked entire google services in china.China’s government accused Google Inc. on Thursday of spreading pornography after Chinese Internet users were temporarily unable to gain
    access to the U.S. search giant’s main Web site or China-based service.

    “We have found that the English version of has spread lots of pornographic, lewd and vulgar content, which is in serious violation of Chinese laws and regulations,” said foreign ministry spokesman Qin Gang. He said authorities “summoned representatives of in China and urged them to remove the content immediately.”

    Qin, speaking at a regular briefing, did not respond to questions about whether China’s government was blocking Web users from seeing Google’s site. However, he said he hoped the problem can be “resolved immediately.” Google said Thursday it was investigating the reason for the outage, which began late Wednesday.

    Chinese users were blocked from seeing Google’s US site, its China-based site and its Gmail e-mail service. A Chinese watchdog agency accused Google last week of providing links to vulgar and obscene sites.

    Google, based in Mountainview, Calif., said it would do more to stop users in China from accessing pornography. “I would like to stress that, as an Internet enterprise providing services in China, should earnestly abide by all Chinese laws,” Qin said.

    “All the punitive measures adopted by the relevant authorities are conducted strictly according to law.” The Chinese agency that oversees the Internet, the ministry of industry and information technology, did not immediately respond to requests for comment. China has the world’s largest population of Internet users at more than 298 million.

    The communist government has the world’s most extensive web monitoring and filtering system, and it regularly blocks access to foreign websites. Authorities launched a crackdown this year that led to the closing of more than 1,900 porn-related websites. Google has struggled to expand in China, where it says it has about 30% of the search market. The company launched with a Chinese partner after seeing its market share erode as government filters slowed access to its US service.

    Its really a big setback to google. But we have a solution for the people who wants to access the blocked sites. Visit this post of mine to know how.
