These days Google has released a video demonstrating the speed of their new betaGoogle Chrome browser. The video is made up in a very creative way. I am impressed how Google always finds really interesting ways to promote their products. Specially this one is of really interest:
For everybody who is interested in the making of this video will like the following one too:
Google Grippe-Trends (Google Flu Trends) ist nun auch in Österreich verfügbar. Auf der extra dafür eingerichteten Website kann man den derzeitigen Verlauf der Grippewelle in Österreich, sowie in viele anderen Staaten verfolgen.
Google bietet auch die Möglichkeit, die zugrunde liegenden Daten für eigene Zwecke herunterzuladen. Für jeden, der sich dafür interessiert, wie das Prinzip dahinter genau funktioniert verweise ich hier auf einen Artikel von Google (Detecting influenza epidemics using search engine query data), der in der Zeitschrift “Nature” veröffentlicht wurde. Der Artikel steht auch als PDF Dokument zur Verfügung. Weitere Informationen zu diesem Thema können auch direkt bei Google bezogen werden.
In addition to the W3C Widgets API and Google Wave Gadgets API, the Wookie engine that renders the widgets also provides a moderator API, enabling admins to lock and unlock widgets. (However, test accounts are in the “student” role and so won’t see these controls)
Google Wave combined with the Wookie engine implementing the W3C Widget API and integrated in a Moodle platform results in an interesting standardized Widget Mash-up system for learning environments.
Webmasters often ask us at conferences or in the Webmaster Help Group, “What are some simple ways that I can improve my website’s performance in Google?” There are lots of possible answers to this question, and a wealth of search engine optimization information on the web, so much that it can be intimidating for newer webmasters or those unfamiliar with the topic. We thought it’d be useful to create a compact guide that lists some best practices that teams within Google and external webmasters alike can follow that could improve their sites’ crawlability and indexing.
What he and his group did was to create a compact guide called the “Google SEO Starter Guide“. There are lot’s of DOs and DON’Ts published. Every blogger and every website owner should have a look on this paper.
We felt that these areas (like improving title and description meta tags, URL structure, site navigation, content creation, anchor text, and more) would apply to webmasters of all experience levels and sites of all sizes and types.
Is Google trying to put SEOs out of business in order to improve indexing sites? This guide will help a lot of people who haven’t done anything related to SEO. Advanced users won’t profit much from Google’s SEO Starter Guide.
In a slightly surprising move, Google has launched via its webmaster central blog a best practice guide for search engine optimization. Why surprising you may ask? Well, Google is notorious for being pretty quiet on this front leaving it to SEO’s, designers, and developers to figure out what works best.
Netzlogbuch states out that the start guide copes basic things that nearly everybody already knows. Well for sure it is helpful for many people out there.
