Saturday, November 12th, 2011

And… there was also a caffeine update.  Well, mid October there was an update to Panda – somewhere in there was a Vince update and then caffeine saw an update in early November.  Did you notice a change in the search results?  Do you feel like they’re better or worse? I’ve had several sites that [...]

The Google Doodle ( Logo ) Archive

Sunday, November 15th, 2009

Last week, Google was doing a different Doodle each day in honor of Sesame Street’s 40th anniversary. A couple days I missed their logo since I usually just search directly from my browser. Since I don’t always get to see the google logo I kind of wanted to see what they had done and while [...]

Google Trends Hottrends (Hot Trends) truncated to 40?

Monday, September 28th, 2009

Interesting – it looks as though Google may be limiting the number of results in their hottrends search page to just 40 now from the 100 that they used to. I’m not very surprised really…. in the last few weeks I’ve been using the hottrends to see which rogue antivirus was the biggest pain in [...]

The internet is an amazing place you can learn about most anything from carbon nanotubes stopping bullets to a duvet cover. In the last few weeks I’ve learned a few things over at Google’s hot trends page. Basically, about once an hour there is an autogenerated list of the top 100 things people are searching [...]

AntivirusOnlineScan 6 v8? the next Rogue?

Thursday, September 3rd, 2009

I see a google hot trend right now is searches for AntivirusOnlineScan 6 and many of the results seem to be incoherent sites talking about antivirusonlinescan v8. It makes me wonder if we’re seeing the rumblings of the next big rogue security software push. Sure enough is flagged as an attack site and has [...]

Tuesday, September 1st, 2009

Yes, Gmail was down today, September 1, 2009 for a stretch this afternoon. Really it wasn’t more than about two hours at the most from what I saw and from what I hear IMAP/SMTP access was working although the web interface was down. I found out a few interesting things during the outage though. … [...]

Google Voice Review | I got the golden ticket….

Wednesday, July 15th, 2009

Last Thursday I opened up my GMail and found to my surprise that I had an invite to Google Voice. I didn’t have time to deal with it at that time, so I saved it as new until Thursday evening and spent some time then playing with it. I had put my address in the [...]

Ranking for a Search Phrase in Google

Thursday, March 12th, 2009

I guess by now you’ve noticed that I’m not keeping up with the 1 post a week rate that I had for a while there. I’ve been thinking that at this point I’m going to be getting in one a month or so. More if the mood strikes, but from what I’ve been seeing that [...]

Google Analytics Feature Tease

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

I just logged into my analytics account over at google and had a strange new view. It showed all the sites in my account with a summary of the code working, traffic up or down and percentage. It looked quite nice, so I tried changing the view so I could see all of my sites [...]

Where did that 404 link Come From?

Wednesday, October 15th, 2008

For a while with Google’s webmaster tools they’ve reported to you which url’s they get 404 errors when spidering your site. Now with the sitemaps and webmaster tools utility they’ll show you where the link was woohoo…. I’m glad to see that I’ve been running into a few 404 errors from time to time and [...]
