Google Mobile Wallet

Google-wallet

Google has unveiled its Mobile Wallet, which is a better, more secure way to keep track of your finances and use them in everyday life. Google Wallet helps keep things organized by storing all of your credit and debit card information in one safe, easy to access location, and very secured in transactions.

In-Person Shopping

Any store that features NFC technology *Tab And Go* is ready for Google Mobile Wallet. By simply tapping your phone to the terminal in question, your financial information is securely transmitted and the transaction is paid for without revealing your credit card information to the retailer. This makes it much less likely that prying eyes will attempt to hijack your information and use it for their own devious purposes later. There are hundreds of thousands of NFC terminals already installed in the United States and many more around the world; there’s no reason not to adopt this technology now.

Online Shopping

With Google Mobile Wallet, online shopping is as easy as any one-click solution can be on the internet. Offering the ability to sign in and view thousands of online retailers who accept Google Wallet, your shopping experience is augmented and you are able to browse stores you may have never found otherwise.

A new local search experience across your mobile

Google

This article is from Google Mobile Blog :

How often are you doing a Google search from your computer to find information about a place before going there? Now, next time you go to Google.com on your Android phone or iPhone, information about that place will be conveniently available under the new “Recent” icon. Calling, getting directions or seeing details about the places you just searched for is now only one tap away.

We provide this new convenience feature for users who have Web History enabled and are logged into Google when doing their search. Start by searching for a place on your PC or other devices, then login to Google.com’s mobile homepage and check the Recent icon. Information about previously searched places will be available under the Recent icon for about three days.

SEO Tricks That Will Make You BLACKLISTED

23

Search Engine Law. The web has a General. He’s big, he’s mean and he’s quick-on-the-draw. His name is Google. General Google keeps the internet frontier safe for law-abiding citizens and white hat content creators alike.

While white hat websites work within the law, search engines are locked in an ever-escalating shoot-out with black hat practitioners. Internet users get caught in the crossfire on a regular basis; unable to differentiate between reputable sites and those with harmful, spam-filled content.

1) Keyword stuffing is bad Trick. Proper keyword use is not the concern of this article, so for now we’ll focus only on the improper kind. Keyword overuse leads to synonym underuse, and makes for content that’s inaccessible to the average human user. Though people might not be able to read your content, search engine robots still will. Oversaturated pages will get you penalised.

2) Hidden text is invisible to human eyes. Keywords or links can be camouflaged by colour-matching text to background leaving them unreadable to human visitors, but perfectly readable to search engine bots.

More complex methods employ cascading style sheets (CSS) or layering to hide text beneath surface copy. Such text is also readable to a search engine spider and not a human user. Black hat operatives attempt to fill their sites with hidden content for the express purpose of achieving higher rankings in search lists, regardless of whether their pages are relevant to a user’s initial search request.

Google law basically states that you should build your website for users, not for search engines. Ignoring this advice by including hidden text or links is one of the quickest ways to get your site blacklist bound.

3) Doorway/gateway/bridge/portal pages are created specifically for search engine bots. They are designed to target particular keywords or phrases and will usually be extremely user-unfriendly and/or difficult to read. Because they are simple devices used to trick people towards actual websites, they rarely contain anything useful (other than prominent “CLICK HERE” links to the real destinations).

Black hat webmasters create portal or bridge pages that bypass the need to click on a link completely, using fast meta refresh commands that whisk you to another site (without so much as a by-your-leave). For this reason, many search engines now refuse to accept pages that use fast meta refresh.

4) Cloaking can be achieved either through IP address delivery or agent delivery. As with people, bots are identified by their user agent or their IP addresses. Two sets of content are created, one delivered to the Google-bot, the other to human visitors. The bot is deceived by the fake pages (the content of which is usually saturated with targeted keywords) and grants the website a higher relevancy ranking. When the user clicks on what they perceive to be a promising link, they’re promptly forwarded to a browser page that’s nothing to do with their original search.

5) Mirror websites are two or more separate sites that use identical content, but employ different keywords and meta tags to obtain rankings on alternative searches. This technique violates the rules of many search engines, and will probably get one or all of your mirrored sites banned.

How Twitter Impacts Google

16

With Google regularly updating search algorithms to ensure it’s delivering the most relvant and up to date content, it was only a matter of time before we started to notice the effects of social media, particularly Twitter, on our search results.

Google have confirmed that they have not only added social and blog search channels, but that social media also has some effect on regular search results.

Google will take into consideration if an article is retweeted or referenced much from Twitter and use this social signal when determining its search placement.

As part of this it will take into consideration Twitter users who have a large number of followers and will consider them to be authoratitive, giving greater relevance to the links they are tweeting about.

Is it useful to do this?

Personally I think it is. Its a bit like the search robot having several million content pickers filtering through the thousands of new pages which are created every day and flagging which are noteworthy.

What does this mean for my business?

It depends, but if you’re vying for the 90% of clicks which come from being on the first page of Google’s search results, you should probably be taking some notice. It is important to remember though that social media is only one of the many factors playing a part in your search rankings and that setting up a Twitter account for the sake of SEO probably isn’t going to do you any favours.

Remember, content is king and social media success relies on you having enough time and inclination to actually be sociable.

Google+ Lunched Brand Pages

12

Google has finally unveiled brand pages for Google+, allowing businesses and brands to join Google’s social network.

The new Google+ brand pages look similar to Google+ Profiles, except for the little square icon that indicates that it’s a Page rather than a Profile. Users can add brands such as Angry BirdsPepsi and e-RAMO :)  to their circles, check out their information and browse their photos. When users add a brand to their circles, it increases that brand’s follower count.

What if Google Did Not Exist ?

If Google wasn’t exist , there will be these problems:-

 * Opera would still be an ad-supported.

* Our homepage / Index would be a portal, or about:blank.

 

* Our search engines would be cluttered, would mix ads with organic results and wouldn’t care about the users.

* We would find a mail by manually reviewing each subject.

* We would pay for software like Picasa, Keyhole (now Google Earth).

* SEO’s wouldn’t care about link building.

* There would be no PageRank as we know it.

* 19,674 full-time employees (from Dec. 2006) would be out of work.

* Web designers would be building flash based sites with ugly dynamic URL structures.

* No one can reach the thing that he/she searching about.

* You wouldn’t be reading this blog or any other blogger-based blogs :) .

* Finally Yahoo will be #1 :) .
