Google is changing

Google has just updated its homepage by introducing the black menu bar over the top of the page. The color of the fonts on the menu look greyish.

For quite a long time google has been experimenting on the user interface of the homepage.

Now, last week it launched "Voice search". I actually liked it. The google voice extension can be downloaded via. google official voice search link - Currently it is available for Chrome only. Just speak and the search will be made accordingly.

Even the color of the left navigation bar the serp's page has also been changed to grey. Well I am hoping some more changes in the interface, in terms of color combination and the style of the buttons.

Most of the changes are looking good though, and looks promising, but, can't say what would be final result or will google again stick to the basics.

Let's see what's behind the curtain next.

Do you want to spy on your competitors ???

You might have used different kinds of tools to spy on your competitors. There must be some manual or automated analysis paid or free tools, in terms of getting the list of the keywords of your competitors that that they are using. It is all the part of competitor analysis. But, the things in which google percieve things, in order to rank a website is completely changed.

One of the seo techniques or seo tool that I am going to introduce, to know on what keywords a particular website is ranking in even the top 5o's. The tool is known as spyfu, just click below and check yourself by entering the competitor's url.

There must be a number of instances when you want to know the varied keywords of your competitors focusing on ranking in the top search engines. You might have got some from the keywords in meta tag or title tags. But, still there are keywords which must be beyond your ken. Spyfu gives you the full control over spying the competitors keywords randomly, not just they are using in only title and meta tags, but much more than that.

So, what are you waiting for spy on your competitors. I'll be back with some more interesting tools.

Panda, Seo and Content

Google's panda update has already threw much perplexities in the webmasters zone and seo world regarding the ranking of the website. Article marketing and web 2.0 marketing are under the suspicious radar and don't seem to be flawless. Search engine optimization tactics are in the great shift.  Seo techniques are changing at a rapid pace. If you always keep a firm eye on the latest internet marketing trends then you must have known to it that the big websites and content portals like aren't even forgiven by "Panda or update".

Some folks are saying they found some low quality articles "e-how" and that may be the reason google punished the website and its was hit hard. Just try to make quality and genuine content for your websites. Panda update still proved that the content is still "KING".

Cheap seo for clients, Really ?

I am quite concerned with the quality of seo services provided by most of the search engine optimizers. Most of the biggest seo firms in the world usually charge moutain high prices and when it comes to affordable seo services the price would go down to as low as a few bucks and there starts a journey of spam links, like blog comments, forums, mostly flooded with adult, casino and viagra links.

My thoughts over the issue are -

1) When you are a big seo firm and providing quality services. Please do no overcharge your customers for heaven's sake. They are also making money from a lot of hard work. They have family to feed. Quality should be accessible to all.

2) If someone wants to provide cheap services to get notice and generating a firm market of his/her own. Then kindly, keep in mind a simple fact that you chose the path of delivering cheap services by yourself. That doesn't mean you should decrease the level of quality of your work. Most of the service providers offers 1/3price of the standard seo services, don't give utmost attention to the nature of links and relevancy.

Search engine optimization is the process of supporting business. It is a service to help our customers in achieving what they want. Help them to make the best use of their website. In this case our services should be accessible to them without any sacrifice on the quality.

Forum Posting - Your web traffic ladder

Ever visited a forum. i am sure all of you must. Have you ever noticed the links at the footer of the posts, like - "healthy diets" or "cheap furniture" directed to a particular website. So what these kind of links are and how would they benefit our seo campaign of website., Let's have a look.

There are many ways to increasing traffic of your website. If you are looking for affordable seo practices to reap maximum gain from your web pages then forum posting is one of them. Leaving links of a particular website in forums having our targeted anchor text and url is commonly known as forum posting. Forum links are valuable one way links if used in the best way having ethical intentions in mind. If you just keep on posting links and spam forums, the administrators would block you for a particular time or forever.

How to do forum posting ?

Just choose the forum relevant to the theme of your website. and sign up. Put your link in the signature or directly post the link in the header of your posting. But, make it sure that the links would only be dofollow, as dofollow links are indexed by search engines only. Forum posting brings tonnes of Traffic to your webpage, hence, more leads, more visitors and more sales. One thing which should be kept in mind is not to spam forums. We should always make genuine posts that are informative and beneficial to others.

One thing should be noted that most of the pages forum pages don't have page rank, but they play an important role in getting high serp's and ranking due to targeted traffic niche..

Forum posting is a simple way to generate traffic, but i repeat again and again don't ever try to spam forums, it won't benefit you even a little, in terms of search engine optimization.

How secure Paypal is ?

“Paypal” an extremely common name among regular internet users and one of the pre-requisites to sell and purchase items on the websites like ebay. We all trust on this amazing service which gives us comfort to send and receive money on a global level.

But for every comfort one has to pay the price. Paypal is associated to numerous scams and frauds. There are a number of examples we could come across when we just type “paypal frauds” in the google search field. The result would list millions of scams paypal has conducted. For eg, paypal bans your account without any reason, cut unnecessary charges, and make huge delays while withdrawing the payment.

A recent example is, the personal payments to and from Indian would be suspended for at least a few months. The decision came under light without any prior notice. But, it is a fact that all the transaction of late January and February 2010 has been suspended in personal accounts and withdrawals has been cancelled, whether it is personal, premiere or business. Merchants won’t be able to withdraw their funds from paypal for an unknown time span. So where should these guys go ? Is there place in the world where they get justice?

Millions of dollars are struck which belongs to Indians. The money of their hard work they can’t use. There might be some emergency, may be social or medical. They are just helpless at the moment. Paypal would have told them at least a week ago before suspension of accounts and cancellation of withdrawals. This behavior is thoroughly unprofessional and dark in terms of honesty to the customers from the world’s no.1 online money transaction company known as “Paypal”.

Any other country could be their next target. Here the question arises : –
