If world ends today (and I tell you how).. This could be my last post

End Of The World-21 may 2011

End Of The World-21 may 2011

I’m a believer.. I believe in all sorts of shits.. ghosts.. magic.. superheroes..  aliens.. Jedi’s and even Santa..

If a news channel tells me that some unsuccessful, desperate for attention group of old scientists and a some dhongi babas computes that today (21st may 2011) might be the judgment day.. i.e. our last day on this planet.. I don’t deny them.. I’m just sad that I may die studying (With Exams going On 🙁 )

And since the storms have already started here in New Delhi, India.. I’ve more reasons to believe in them.. I mean it was so hot yesterday.. I bet it was some where around 44 45 degree Celsius.. and now there’s cold wind accompanied by thundering clouds.. something surely is cooking UP there..

So how is it exactly gonna happen?

Well I don’t know but there’s this dude – Harold Camping who claims that the Bible tells us how.. This is what he told in an interview to New York Magazine:

When we get to May 21 on the calendar in any city or country in the world, and the clock says about — this is based on other verses in the Bible — when the clock says about 6 p.m., there’s going to be this tremendous earthquake that’s going to make the last earthquake in Japan seem like nothing in comparison. And the whole world will be alerted that Judgment Day has begun. And then it will follow the sun around for 24 hours. As each area of the world gets to that point of 6 p.m. on May 21, then it will happen there, and until it happens, the rest of the world will be standing far off and witnessing the horrible thing that is happening.

He also predicts that the Rapture – Beginning of the ending of the world as we know it will take place on 6P.M. on 21st May 2011 and the end of the world will take place five months later on October 21, 2011. He previously predicted that the world would end in September 1994.. (The year Internet actually became a mode of communication worldwide.) LoOk how that worked out.. although a powerful Earthquake did strike Japan the very same month.. but the world didn’t came to an end.

You can know more about this person here and to know more about his prediction go here..

So still there is a very goOd chance that this could be my very last post.. and to make it worst this could be the last time I’m typing on my Android.. 🙁

But to even worsen it.. this could be the last post you’re reading.. 😛

So I just wanna wish you that if you die.. you may reborn in planet Krypton with all the cool superpowers Superman have.. or may I just wish for you that you stay alive.. former one is much coOler.. isn’t it?? 😉

So All I wanna say is Stay hungry.. Stay foOlish.. but most of all.. Stay Alive.. 😉

And if you are still alive do let me know by commenting on this post and tell what n how do you exactly feel about still living n breathing on this day.. 🙂

Insight: Does POP Up/Under affects goOgle ranking and hence traffic?

No doubt Pop ups or Pop unders are annoying to users.. But does they have a negative effect on your website’s goOgle search ranking and hence traffic??

There is no clear answer to this but here I present a little theory of my own based on some facts explained below:

  1. GoOgle hates Popups.
    Evident from:

    • GoOgle hates Pop-ups.. So much that even goOgle toolbar have a Pop-up blocker and goOgle Chrome have a built in pop up blocker.
    • GoOgle always favors a clean website with no pop-ups against a similar one with pop-ups.
    • GoOgle even disapprove Adwords landing pages with pop-ups.

    Or if even that’s not enough.. here’s goOgle saying it itself..  go to this page http://www.google.com/help/nopopupads.html
    Read in the first line: “We find them annoying.”
    GoOgle have made it clear over the years that it loves quality content. And I don’t think it classifies a website forcing pop up ads as a goOd quality website.

  2. SEO Point of view.
    Landing page Loading time is an important SEO factor. So large ads or Pop-Up/Pop-Under which may slow down the loading speed can be a factor to consider.
    Although the intensity of impact is unclear. And there are still more unanswered questions like even if they consider a POP Up as a NO-NO! Do they treat all POP Ups the same way? Does their algorithms differ between forced popups and popus created by user interaction like clicking on a link?
  3. Now I present my final point with some evidential data.
    Look at the image below.. It shows last 20 days traffic of one of my website:

    Statistical Data to prove Pop up/Under effects goOgle search engine rank negatively

    Statistical Data to prove Pop up/Under effects goOgle search engine rank negatively

    We placed the code for Pop-under ads on 2nd May on terminal pages of the website and on 8th we placed Pop-under ads on the initial pages too.. (Something we regret.) and you can see for yourself what happened then.. The keywords for which our site’s results used to come on first page were not even until 5th page.
    In another case which I read on some blog this guy was having #4 and # 7 for 2 very competetive keywords on google, and the week after he placed the Pop-Up ads  #4 and #7 went to #142 and #200.

So my theory ends here.. BUT, there’s still one more thing I want to show you before we jump to a conclusion.

See this video of  Matt Cutts of Google:

Upon asking “Does goOgle reward or penalize for pop-under, directly or indirectly?”

He says:

“To the best of my knowledge we don’t reward or penalize for having a pop-up or pop-under or any hing like that..users dont’t like it…..”

“To the best of my knowledge – I’m not familiar with every body and every single thing in the search quality but I don’t know of anything where we would say oh this site has a pop up or pop under so don’t rank it as highly. Its a common feature request.. A lot of people want us to do that.. but to the best of my knowledge we’ve never done anything like that ”

A few things to note in this video is:

  • Excessive use of “To the Best of my knowledge”.
    He didn’t denied it completely and used “To the best of my knowledge” 3 times thats a lot of times in less than a minute length of speech..
  • Its a common feature request.
    So they might add it in future.
  • Video is dated back to 5th April 2010 – almost an year old.
    GoOgle have changed its algorithm a lot since then. Recent being the “Panda” update. So there’s always a chance that they may have implemented it by now.

So I’m gonna give this benefit of doubt to the above stated theory and recommend NOT to use any pop-ups/under ads. They may give high CPMs but they hinder your traffic too hence nullifying the extra earning if any.. And even If you don’t have Search Engine Organic traffic then also you should avoid using them as they are really annoying to the users.

If you’re wondering who is this Matt Cutts I’m talking about..

Matt Cutts works for the Search Quality group in Google, specializing in search engine optimization issues.He is well known in the SEO community for enforcing the Google Webmaster Guidelines and cracking down on link spam. Cutts also advises the public on how to get better website visibility in Google as well as webmaster issues in general, and is generally an outspoken and public face of Google.

Osama Bin Laden is still alive!

On 1st May 2011 US President Barrack Obama declared to the world that they have killed Osama Bin Laden – Major culprit in 9/11 attacks and Leader and Founder of Alqaida, BUT he was not completely correct.

Osama Bin Laden Still Alive

Although he might have been successful in getting rid of the Alqaida terrorist osama hiding in Abottabad, Pakistan but the very same day new Osama(s) started to emeerge and terrorirze netizens and computer users all around the globe.
Within the few hours of declaration of his death the facebook feeds were flooded with posts like:
“Osama is dead, watch this exclusive CNN video which was censored by Obama Administration due to level of violence, a must watch. Leaked by Wikileaks.”
Links claiming to show footage of Osama being killed by US troops and Photoshopped images of him started doing rounds on people’s wall..
“Exclusive footage” that will “leave you speechless” has been leaked by “Wikileaks” and organisations like “CNN”
President Barack Obama has decided not to release any photos of the deceased Osama bin Laden, so any link claiming to show this photo or video should not be opened as they are nothing but spammy viruses.

Those accounts which fell prey of this spam attack automatically spam their friends’ wall too..

FBI also warned people to not to open thise unsolicited links even if they were posted to you by your friends.
In a statement FBI said:
Exercise caution when you receive e-mails that purport to show photos or videos of Usama bin Laden’s recent death. This content could be a virus that could damage your computer. This malicious software, or “malware,” can embed itself in computers and spread to users’ contact lists, thereby infecting the systems of associates, friends, and family members. These viruses are often programmed to steal your personally identifiable information.
The FBI further advised computer users to ensure that they have updated anti-virus protection to detect and handle such malicious softwares and to keep an eye for fraudulent messages that often feature spelling mistakes and poor grammar or nonstandard English.

Its not the first time that spammers have taken advantage of any such event and particularly the “Killing of Osama” have been rumoured many a times by the spammers on social networking sites and in emails.

Like with any other virus, the best ways to defend against the Osama virus is to make sure your antivirus software is up to date. Anti-Virus software companies continually update their databases to make sure that all new threats are addressed as they become known. If you don’t keep your antivirus up to date, you’re as good as with none at all.

Another way to stay protected is a two word mantra –  “goOgle it” rather than clicking on the doubted link.. thats what I do..
If its out ont the internet its surely on goOgle.

Also avoid granting Permissions to the Facebook applications that you don’t think they require.. Always read what permissions are you granting to any application before allowing granting them those permissions.

Facebook and other affected sites are working hard to get rid of the virus and making sure nothing like this happen again But its us Netizens who should stay alert at first place and not fall for these scams otherwise Osama will stay alive.. only this time he’ll be hiding inside our computer.

GoOgle wishes Martha Graham’s 117th Birthday with an Awesome Animated doOdle

Another Awesome doOdle by goOgle was reavaled this midnight on the occasion of 117th Birthday of Martha Graham – an American dancer and choreographer.

Martha Graham (May 11, 1894 – April 1, 1991) was an American dancer choreographer regarded as one of the foremost pioneers of modern dance, whose influence on dance can be compared to the influence Stravinsky had on music, Picasso had on the visual arts, or Frank Lloyd Wright had on architecture.[1] Graham was a galvanizing performer, a choreographer of astounding moves. She invented a new language of movement, and used it to reveal the passion, the rage and the ecstasy common to human experience. She danced and choreographed for over seventy years, and during that time was the first dancer ever to perform at The White House, the first dancer ever to travel abroad as a cultural ambassador, and the first dancer ever to receive the highest civilian award of the USA: the Medal of Freedom. In her lifetime she received honors ranging from the key to the City of Paris to Japan’s Imperial Order of the Precious Crown. She said, “I have spent all my life with dance and being a dancer. It’s permitting life to use you in a very intense way. Sometimes it is not pleasant. Sometimes it is fearful. But nevertheless it is inevitable.”

[Source: Wikipedia]

The splendid animation is done by Ryan Woodward and for the first time I’ve seen goOgle giving credit to the animator on the homepage itself in the image’s alt tag.

GoOgle doOdle wishes Roger Hargreaves on 76th Birthday

Just noticed the new collection of 16 doOdles on goOgle’s homepage wishing Roger Hargreaves 76th Birthday.

Charles Roger Hargreaves (9 May 1935 – 11 September 1988) was a British author and illustrator of children’s books, notably the Mr. Men and Little Miss series, intended for very young readers. The books’ simple and silly stories, with bright-coloured, boldly drawn illustrations, have been part of popular culture for over 25 years, with sales over 85 million worldwide in 20 languages.

[Source: Wikipedia]

For the First time I’ve seen 16 different doOdles on the same day. The doOdles depict the characters from the Series Mr Men and Little Miss created by Roger Hargreaves and load randomly one at a time.

Each doOdle tells a stroy if you are skilled enough to imagine.. Like in the First one Mr Forgetful seems to forget “e” of GoOgle outside the house.. 😛

In total there are 16 doOdles 9 inspired from Mr. Men Series and rest 7 from Little Miss series.

GoOgle’s World’s fair anniversary doOdle – #Awesome

Just when I was sure there can’t be a better doOdle.. enters.. A brand new Awesomely designed goOgle’s doOdle dedicated to the 160th Anniversary of the First World’s Fair. I have already defined the doOdle in one single word as Awesome. Just to elaborate.. Its so awesome that I have a new addition to my bucket list..

Meet goOgle’s doOdle designer.

Its so awesome that I’m half asleep and still writing this post dedicated to its awesomeness.. had it been any other doOdle I must have waited till morning..

Worlds Fair DoOdle

First of all lets put a little light on What’s “World’s fair”

World’s Fair, World Fair, Universal Exposition, and World Expo (expo short for “exposition”), are names given to various large public exhibitions held in different parts of the world. The first Expo was held in The Crystal Palace in Hyde Park, London, United Kingdom in 1851 under the title “Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Nations”. “The Great Exhibition”, as it is often called, was an idea of Prince Albert, Queen Victoria’s husband, and was the first international exhibition of manufactured products.

To read more navigate to the Wikipedia article here..

Now lets move to the anatomy of our doOdle:

World's Fair Doodle AnatomyNow lemme explain the beauty of it.

On hovering upon the logo the cursor turns into a Magnifying glass shown below:

DoOdle Magnified

Apart from magnification theres also some noticeable animations. These are achieved by the following GIFs:

Hence we say its a very intelligently and creatively artist-ed doOdle and #Respect is the word we would like to dedicate to anyone who designed it 🙂
