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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

GrandCentral – One Ring to rule them ALL?

Thursday, October 9th, 2008

Has Google gone too far with the purchase of GrandCentral? “One number that rings all your phones” (and in the darkness binds them?) There are already great privacy concerns with google. This new acquisition I am SURE will lead to more worries. The idea with grandcentral is that you have a unified inbox for voicemail. [...]

Web Site Promotion Through Directories

Sunday, February 17th, 2008

When I first started building web sites I seemed to have very good “google luck”. I designed pages, published and then submitted to 4-5 search engines and a couple directories and the traffic started coming in. The search engines were altavista, google, hotbot and a couple others and the directories were yahoo and dmoz. Lot’s [...]
