Where is Google Headed ? – Advertisement hell for business owners

Today I was searching for few keywords which were property and real estate related. Shocked to see most of the top result for the search was an advertisement from property developers.

Half of the result in the page was Adwords campaign of few top real-estate companies in Dubai. Google has made it look like a typical result with a small distinction between paid and actual search result.

As a regular user with average screen size all you will be looking at first glance is the advertisement. Most of the users will not even scroll further to see what is the actual search result.

What happens to people who focus on SEO? Are they f___ked?

Is there any scope for organic SEO? Most of the SEO experts I know already stopped doing SEO and getting certified as SEM experts.

How much money are the companies willing to pay Google? What happens to small business who cannot spend so much money for placing ads with Adwords? Are they f__ked?

Google Web Search has become Google Ad Search. Google has turned so greedy and so evil.

Shortest Google Index Time

I am really amazed that my blog post got indexed in Google in less than 23 minutes. That is a record 😀 for my blog.

Cheers that is some serios SEO muahahahah!!!!!!!

Search site box in Google search results

Today I was searching Google for the keyword wikipedia. I found something new on the search results. I found a search button text box and button under the search result of wikipedia mentioning to search site wikipedia. I tested it for few popular keywords and for all them it had this search box. From the test I did it is evident that site with more than thousands of articles get this box else just the site links 😉

Happy Googling 😀

Website content and search engine optimization

Past few months I have stopped blogging much. I was doing a small study on search engine optimization on my website. What happens to my existing traffic if I stop putting fresh content on my website. The result was quite expensive. There was steady drop in my traffic. I was thinking the old links in my website should give me the same traffic as it was before. Sadly that didn’t happen. Instead my referrals dropped every month. So I got really scared and started back my posting regularly from this month.

Website content and search engine optimization

During the time all posted in my blog was all scarp and totally means nothing in the content. Which again degrades the quality of the content my website is providing in the eyes of search engine. So again this added to my expense list.

The next stupid thing I did was changing my blog theme. In that I missed some important search engine optimization checks. Where most of my urls didn’t have trailing slashes. This caused a big difference in my PageRank distribution in my website. And I notice there was not update from Google on PageRank for a more than 3 months now.

From my past three months experiment which was really an expensive one these are my conclusion

1. Always keep your content addition to website in a steady pace. It should not be added all at the same time nor at irregular intervals. It makes easy for the search engine to analyze the freshness provided by the website. If it is in a regular interval then your website can get good rankings in the search result. Google always looks for fresh content for the particular keyword. If your website has a good article for that keyword and if it is a fresh content then there is lot of chance for your website to come in top results. Fingers crossed.

2. If you don’t have any good article or news to write about in your website then don’t. I did that mistake of blogging about my crazy laziness crap in between when I had a guilty feeling that my blog is dead for a while. This is totally wrong. You are spoiling your website reputation in search engines point of view. There is a chance of increasing your bounce backs more. For a blog generally the bounce back is more and which is normal. For a website which concentrates on products or service this will be really bad.

3. Be very careful while you change your website template. See that all the main urls of the website stays intact and your link distribution was as good as it was before. If the search engine detects sudden change in your website depending on your website rankings it will try to update all your links. If some links are missing or if your links distribution was not good enough you might loose some page in the course of doing. Which is really bad for the search engine optimization. For stupid blog like this it is not a issue at all. If the website means bread and butter for your daily life then be very careful when you do something like this. One suggestion is to see that sitemap.xml etc are correctly placed and updated. Please don’t change the url structure unless it is really necessary.

Wow that is so much for now. I have some real good experience playing with Google Adsense and still doing some more experiments. Will post about it sooner 😉

Meta tags are important for seo

Today I was searching for the keyword “emirates driving” to locate Dubai Emirates Driving Institute website and I came across this on the search result

Dubai Emirates Driving Institute bad seo

I was shocked to see the description in the search result ;-). Then I inspected the code of the website which gave me lot of information ..

<title>Emirates Driving Institute – Home</title>
<meta name=”description” content=”Joomla – the dynamic portal engine and content management system” />
<meta name=”keywords” content=”Joomla, joomla” />
<meta name=”Generator” content=”Joomla! – Copyright (C) 2005 – 2006 Open Source Matters. All rights reserved.” />

Now it is very clear to me that meta tags are really important to search engine optimization. And emirates driving school website is driven by a famous open source application named Joomla 😀
