Google Page Rank Update: 3 April 2010

Posted by Winner on , under | comments (13)



Google Pagerank (PR) Update For April 2010 Has Happened on 3 April 2010
As we expected that Google will update page rank i.e PR in April 2010 and today finally on 3 April 2010 Google rolled out Page rank for everyone. Seems like this time page rank comes as a good news for every one. One of my website got Page rank=2 and another one in different niche managed to get Page rank=3.

Last time we discussed on Google page rank update 2010 or Google PR update 2010 and many users added that they don’t really care about Page rank and only traffic means a lot to them.

I would still love to know your opinion on your latest PR updates and do let us know your changes in Page Rank, whether they were Good or Bad?

Posted by Winner on , under | comments (3)



Google Search Malware Glitch
Google Mistakenly Labels The Internet as Malware.

Google, the leading search engine has hit a glitch, a very crippling glitch that at the time of this post is labeling every single website on the internet as malware. Twitter, blogs, forums and other online gathering spots are alive with talk of the Google glitch with search engine traffic from Google now non existent as the problem affects, every country, every OS and every browser.



Even the Google domain is being labeled as Malware


Edit: – As quickly as how it started the glitch has ended. Google search results are no longer labeling all results as malware and the buzz is begining to subside.


How to Make Money with Google Knol using Adsense

Posted by Winner on , under | comments (3)



Knol is Google's new Wikipedia, where anyone can post their own articles (also known as knols).

Get Started:
To start making money, you need to create a knol. To do this you will need to sign in with your Gmail account or create a new one. Then you will need to register with adsense, which is google's ads publishing program. Now, once you have published a knol and adsense ads are enabled, relevant ads will appear next to your articles. When people read your articles and click on your ads, you will get paid for each click.

How much Money can I make?
It all depends on how many times your ads are clicked and what the topic of your article is. For example, if your article is about health insurance you'll get more money per click than an article about free wallpapers. So start writing articles about different topics, to see which can earn you the most money.

Free Traffic
If you take advantage of your articles, you'll find it possible to link to your own website or blog. Which can easily give you lots of quality traffic to your site.

What is a Googlebot?

Posted by Winner on , under | comments (0)



Googlebot
Well today I’m going to have an interview with Googlebot. We are going to talk about Googlebot. Let’s call Googlebot as he. He is a celebrity in the internet. All of the webmasters are expecting for Googlebot visitation. They pimp their website to give a good impression. And today,…I’m going to interview the most expected robot for my blogger manual… Please welcome….Googlebot!


Googlebot : Hi….hello everybody….

Me : Wow, thanks for your time…. How are you today?

Googlebot : Oh…I’m fine…thanks for asking

Me : And what is your activity presently?

Googlebot : Well, you know….I patrol all over the web to find a new webpage and decide the pagerank for the whole webpages. Do you have any webpages?

Me : Oh…yes! I’ll publish this interview on my blogger manual blog?

Googlebot : Oh,…may I know your URL….

Me : My URL is http://clubedu.blogspot.com . Do you know it?

Googlebot : Oh…sure…I have your URL in my directories. Unfortunatelly, I’ve just decreased the pagerank for your homepage?

Me : Hahahaha…never mind. After all, it’s my own fault…. Oh…I have some questions from my friends to ask you…. What can we do to get your pagerank?

Googlebot : Well, your question has gone too far. In fact, you should ask …how to make me visit your blog…first? Because, If I can’t see your blog…you won’t get any point in my result page.

Me : Oh yes, …..please tell me?

Googlebot : If you want me to visit your blog, you have to build a connection to the web in internet. Consider that I’m a spider…I won’t reach any place if there is no web connection to that place. How,…can you build that connection? Simple enough… You can ask another webmaster that has indexed page to create a backlink to your blog…. If I visit the page and I see the tunnel to your blog, I’ll visit your…. Or, you can simply ask for to be crawled at http://www.google.com/addurl . Your URL will be placed in my waiting list… and I’ll visit the webpage within days to 3 weeks….

Me : Oh…that’s why you found my blog even I did not make any registration. You found my blog through my inbound link…

Googlebot : That’s right

Me : Oh…my next question is…When you visit a webpage…what is your activity on that page?

Googlebot : Sure I’ll read all the webpage’s content, collect the keyword for my database, find any format that violate my Term of Service, and I look for tunnels/link that can lead me to other webpage.

Me: Oh, I just want to know….How can I make my article listed in your result page for a targeted keywords?

Googlebot : Easy…put your keywords in your title tag, meta keywords tag, meta descriptions tag, posted article’s title, your first twenty words in article…spread the keywords in your article, and close the article with your keyword. The first keyword in your article should be bolded. ….and the most important thing is the anchor text of your inbound link. What is anchor text? It’s the word that your link partners use to make a link to you. It sounds like a vote for your blog in my ear (If I have one)….

Me: Wow, is that enough to be listed in your result page?

Googlebot : Yes, but I can’t give you any guarantee that your page will be listed in the first page…. I think it will be enough if your targeted keywords is a low competition keywords. But if you target for a high competition keyword…you will be asked more….

Me: Oh…what is it?

Googlebot : I’ll ask for your link popularity, the number of your visitors, and I’ll consider the age of your webpage

Me: Oh,…that’s why people try to increase their pagerank and alexa rank….to compete for a high competition keywords….hmmm…. I see … I see… By the way, how to get a high pagerank….

Googlebot : Hahaha….easy you must have a lot of backlinks or high link popularity to achieve a high pagerank…. Do you?

Me: Hehehehe … I did some link exchange for that….

Googlebot : What?!!! I don’t like it. Link exchange is a method to manipulate your pagerank…. You should get your backlink by increase the quality of your contents….

Me : Oh, so you don’t like the method. Then why don’t you punish bloggers who use this method?

Googlebot : I can’t. It’s because I can’t feel the difference between link exchange and a normal reciprocal links. But you know....I don’t have to worry about anything. Reciprocal link has a lower value than a one-way backlink. It makes me can see the link to a high quality contents.

Me : Oh…I see… My next question is …”How to decide the pagerank that you will give to a page?”

Googlebot : Easy…consider it like this… I make a visitation to a page which have PR3, and the page has 70 links on it. One of those links is directed to your blog. How much poin you will have from a blog like this? Easy…your point is (3/70)*0,85= 0,036.
If your page is indexed but has no backlink, then your point is only 0,15.

Me: Hah….it’s to small….If I want to achieve PR3, then I must look for …. Hmmmm…. Let me count first… 3-0,15 = 2,85……then 2,85 : 0,036 = 80 links…. But, I found a blog which have over 100 links but their PR is 0. Is there something wrong with my calculation?

Googlebot : Hehehe….those +100 links is a reciprocal links, and that means I have to iterate the value until I get a steady state value. Which means the point will be decreased. It’s just like water which always looks for a flat surface.
After all….not all of your link partners have PR3…. Most of them has a lower PR….and don’t forget, most of them have blogs with over 100 links (The link exchanger)

Me: Oh….I see … that’s why most of the PR3 blogs in my country must have +200 backlinks to get the PR? Oh, before I forget,…Yesterday my friend with a PR3 blog found that his blog’s PR has been lowered to PR2….why?

Googlebot : Hmm….consider it like this… Your link partners had 70 links when you asked for a link exchange. But today he has 200 links on his page…. And that means the point that he pass to you is getting smaller and smaller. That’s why if you want to have a steady PR, your backlinks should be one way backlinks. If your backlinks come from link exchange activity, then you must always do the link exchange to keep or improve your pagerank…..

Me: When you will visit my blog again?

Googlebot: Well, it’s depent on your luck. If I found a blog with your link on it…I’ll come to your blog again…

Me: Hahaha….so there is a luck factor in this business….

Googlebot : Yup…. Oh…don’t forget…I have some limitation. I will get some troubles with a page that contains to many links… If your link is the #156 position,….probably I won’t see the link, or I will find your link, but after some visitations….hehe

Me : Oh…that’s not a good news for me….

Ok….it’s time to say goodbye,...hope you enjoy this blogger manual fantasy conversation. thanks for your visitation

SUMMARY OF SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION - BEST TIPS FOR SEO

Posted by Winner on , under | comments (0)



SUMMARY OF SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION (HOW TO GET A POTITION IN THE FIRST PAGE OF GOOGLE’S SEARCH RESULTS)
Search Engine Optimization is not an easy thing, and there is no guarantee that your efforts will bring a good result. I’m a beginner in this blogging world, but I think God helps me to understand about this stuff.

Before you start the whole process, I just want you to know that as a beginner you will need a lot of luck to win the competition. But the most important to make you win the competition is the knowledge. SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION is a combination of a lot activity. One single mistake can make the whole process worthless.

So, I’ll explain the whole process step by step.

#1 Step…Preparation
Consider it that you don’t have any blog, and you’re going to create your first blog. The first activity to be done is to choose your blog’s theme. What topic you are going to write in your blog? For example your topic is Home Based Business
Next activity is to create your blog in blogger.com. Make sure you use a template that has a left position main area. It means your article will be shown on the left side and the gadgets on the right side. Why? It’s because the spider crawls from the top-left side to the bottom-right side. Make sure the spider find your article before your gadgets? Why??? It’s all about your keywords.
Next,….create your article. Each time you want to create an article, you must do some keywords research. For example, your article will talk about Affiliate Program. Open the GOOGLE EXTERNAL KEYWORDS TOOL. Type AFFILIATE PROGRAM in the keywords box. Enter the anti-spam code and click on GET KEYWORDS SUGGESTION button. Wait for the result, you will see a list of keywords with their data. Try to choose a low competition keywords. You can find a keywords with nearly empty competition bar. But, make sure you choose a keywords that has a good search volume. Now, write your article and spread the keywords in your article. You don’t need to repeat the keywords more than four times, but make sure that your article’s title contains the keyword.

OK, you already have your first blog

#2 Step…On-Page Optimization
Now it’s time to optimize your webpage. It’s needed to make the spider feels happy when it visits your blog. We give the information that spider needs to classify your blog in its index.
Put the title and meta tag in your blog’s HTML. How to put the meta tag and title tag? Just read my META TAG AND TITLE TAG article. It is very important factor in search engine optimization…
Make sure that your blog’s title and your article’s title contain the keywords
It’s good to use label for your article. You can add labels on your article when you create the article. Make sure that the label contains your keywords.
If you want to create another article that is not related to your blog topic. It’s better for you to create another blog. Remember, one Google Account can be used to create many blogs. Just click on create blog link on the top right side of your dashboard. If you try to blend another topic in to your blog, It will hurt the relevancy of your blog to its basic pattern. Since I joined a paid review program, I try my best to keep my blog on its basic form.
Put the keywords in your Widget’s Title and if you use image, please use ALT attribute in its HTML. The ALT attribute must contains the keywords.

So, if you do this, The spider will love your blog and can find the main color of your blog easily.

#3 STEP….OFF-PAGE OPTIMIZATION
Even if your blog is beautiful as miss universe, it will bring nothing if spider can’t find it. Do you know what I mean? So the last process is to make the spider can easily find your blog.
Do you ever think, why we named the robot as spider? Coz it crawl from a website to other website. It can’t arrive to a website if there is no web connects the website. The web connection is the link on the other webpage. So, we are going to build a lot of links that directed to your blog
You can build link by doing some link exchange, or pay for a PPC advertisement, or posting your link in a forum, bookmarks services, and other webpage

Hahahaha….it will need a lot of backlinks to get PR3 above for your blog. You can open a PR 3 above blog and count the number of backlinks. If you can create those backlinks, I guarantee that your PR will be lifted up.

Is that all?…well, I have my last suggestion for you, before your blog listed in Google, you can promote your blog manually by inviting others bloggers to visit your blog.

I did this and one of my four months old blog is being listed in Google first page for 34 keywords…. If you are a new blogger, just enjoy the process coz it will take one month to see some results.

How to Fix Custom Favicons for Blogger Blogs

Posted by Winner on , under | comments (0)



Fixing Custom Favicons for Blogger Blogs

Favicons A-Z by Dave TaylorMany Blogger users have reported that their custom favicon has suddenly been replaced with the default orange Blogger favicon.



The reason for this is that the 'all-head-content' includable (the content generated for page headers when your blog is viewed in a browser) has been updated to include the following line:



<link href='http://www.blogger.com/favicon.ico' rel='icon' type='image/vnd.microsoft.icon'/>


Thankfully, there is an easy "fix" for this issue!



Simply locate the line(s) of code you have added to your Blogger template to reference your custom Favicon, and move these just before the closing </head> tag in your template.



The reason this trick works is because the code to reference your custom favicon appears after the lines added by Blogger to reference the Blogger favicon. In all HTML documents, code which appears later in the mark-up takes precedence over any tags which appear earlier (unless of course, statements are attached to make the earlier tags preferential!).




Favicons and Internet Explorer

When using Internet Explorer 6, you will only see favicons appear in the address bar if you have bookmarked the site you are viewing.



The tern "favicon" is  short for "favorite icon", and as such Internet Explorer will only display the favicon of a site if the site is recognized as one of your favorites (ie: if you have bookmarked the site in your browser!).



Some people also report that the favicon will only display when viewing the particular page they have bookmarked, and not the entire site. In this case, you would need to restart your browser for the favicon to appear in the address bar of all pages.



Your internet security settings (both in Internet Explorer and any anti-virus/anti-spyware programs you use) may also affect whether or not favicons will be displayed in IE6.



Were you able to fix your broken favicon?



I hope this post has provided a useful overview of how to fix the link to your custom favicon in your Blogger blog.
