Watch and Track total Lunar Eclipse Live on YouTube & goOgle

Total Lunar express is in progress right now in space and as well as on goOgle doOdle too.. 😛

A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes behind the earth so that the earth blocks the sun’s rays from striking the moon. This can occur only when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are aligned exactly, or very closely so, with the Earth in the middle. Hence, there is always a full moon the night of a lunar eclipse. The type and length of an eclipse depend upon the Moon’s location relative to its orbital nodes.

GoOgle guitar doOdle lets you Play, Record & Share

You can still play goOgle Guitar doOdle. To play goOgle Guitar doOdle now, Navigate here.

Earlier yesterday when I covered the goOgle’s guitar doOdle, created as a tribute to Les Paul – Inventor of Electric Guitar on his 96th Anniversary, there was no Recording or sharing option on the Guitar doOdle.. but now when I revisited to play some more (before it goes away) I was amazed to see a new “Recording” mode there.

Earlier where there was a button to activate keyboard mode on the doOdle so you can play with your keyboard keys, now there was a Recording button which starts recording as soon as you hit it.. then you can start playing using your keyboard keys and after you finish recording it provides you with the URL to share your recording with your friends or you can also playover your recording..

GoOgle Guitar doOdle - Play, Record & Share

GoOgle Guitar doOdle - Play, Record & Share

I wonder when guitar doOdle will be removed from the goOgle homepage, will recordings also be removed or they would be archived forever. . and as recording actually plays on a goOgle guitar only..  if they do decide to archive then maybe this doOdle will also be Online forever so we can play, record and share on goOgle Guitar whenever we want.. I really wish goOgle do that.. otherwise  just letting users to play with it only for a day  and then taking it away from them would be such a waste..

Now to see an e.g. click here to listen to the awesome Star Wars theme created with the goOgle guitar doOdle.

To play it like a pro you need to know what button corresponds to what chord:

C Major = 1, 3 5, 8

F Major = 4, 6, 8

G Major = 5, 7, 9

and also

1= Q A Z
2=W S C
3=E D C
4=R F V
5=T G B
6=Y H N
7=U J M
8=I K ,
9=O L .
0 =P ; /

This means Key 1, q, a, z are equivalent..

Now Here are some of the popular tunes which you can play and record on goOgle Guitar doOdel:

London Bridge 5654-345-234-345-5654-345-2-5-31

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star 11-55-66-5-44-33-22-1-55-44-33-2-55-44-33-2-11-55-66-5-44-33-22-1

Titanic Theme K KK K JK K JK L P L K KK K JK K JK KL G

Now go create your own jingle and don’t forget to post your link in the comments.. and maybe I’ll feature your jingle in my next post..

This goOgle doOdle is supposedly the most loved doOdle or maybe second after Pacman doOdle.. personally before the new recording feature my rankings were First Pacman and then this Guitar doOdle.. but now with recording option guitar doOdle is ahead of Pacman doOdle 😛

But for what it matters both of the doOdles managed to waste much of our time.. 😀

Update: GoOgle have decided to keep up the awesome google guitar doOdle for one more day 🙂

Les Paul's Guitar doodle

Hello People of the earth.. Today is the day when you can goOgle your ways through life and play some music while you’re doing it.

Today I woke up to the melodious tunes of new goOgle doOdle in form of a guitar which can be strung by the users. I am no musician but I composed some awesome tunes.. 😉

Yet another awesome doOdle by goOgle.. I’m not sure but I guess(based on all of which I have seen) its the first doOdle with sound and is also playable..

Today’s doOdle is a tribute to the Electric guitar inventor – Les Paul’s 96th Anniversary.

Lester William Polsfuss (June 9, 1915 – August 12, 2009)—known as Les Paul—was an American jazz and country guitarist, songwriter and inventor. He was a pioneer in the development of the solid-body electric guitar which “made the sound of rock and roll possible”.He is credited with many recording innovations. Although he was not the first to use the technique, his early experiments with overdubbing (also known as sound on sound), delay effects such as tape delay, phasing effects and multitrack recording were among the first to attract widespread attention. [Source: WikiPedia]


Below are the sprites used in making of the doOdle visual but thats not its main attraction.. Its main attraction is the melodies that plays when we strung the strings of the doOdle..

The most amazing thing is this that you can activate the Keyboard Mode to play the guitar with you keyboard keys. To activate keyboard mode press on the keyboard icon on the doOdle.

HowTo: Add goOgle “+1” button to your website

[To know about goOgle’s +1 Button navigate here]

How to add “+1” button on my website/blog?

On 1st June 2011 goOgle rolled out +1 Button for Websites so that you viewers can +1 their articles right from the page and their connections would be able to see their recommendation on the search page.

All you need to do to add “+1 button” to your website is to insert just two lines of code. (Yeah! Its that simple!)

Place this line of code in your head section or just before you  close the body tag:

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

then place this code where you want your “+1 button” to appear on page.


The URL to +1 is determined by one of the three things given below (and in given order):

1) The href attribute  defined in the <g:plusone> tag

<g:plusone href=""></g:plusone>

2) rel attribute of <link> tag
If href attribute of plusone tag has not been set then goOgle looks for the href attribute in the link tag and rel attribute’s value.


<link rel="canonical" href="" />

3) URL of the page
If both the above values are not specified then goOgle looks for the URL of the page as defined in document.location.href i.e the URL as found in DOM.

Note: If you want to onfigure this in WordPress you can use the function get_permalink(); to echo the url of your post.

<g:plusone href="<?php echo get_permalink();  ?>"></plusone>

or you can make use of the canonical URL defined by wordpress in the head section of your every post.

This is just the basic stuff If you want to customize your +1 button to more extent you can goto through this page and learn about changing the size of button or showing or hiding the count of your button etc.

By default <g:plusone></plusone> will render as:

<g:plusone size="standard" count="true"></g:plusone>

The size attribute can take values: small, medium, standard, tall

and count attribute can take values: true, false

Thats all about Adding and customizing goOgle +1 button on your website/blog.

Do share in comments how you like this article and if you experience any difficulty and seek little help.

Insight: goOgle’s +1 Button

[To see howto add +1 button to your website navigate here.]

What is goOgle +1 button?

First of all if you want to know what is this +1 button we’re talking about.. you need to see this video embedded below:

The +1 button is a shorthand for “this is pretty cool” or “you should check this out.” Click +1 to publicly give something your stamp of approval. Your +1’s can help friends, contacts and others find the best stuff when they search.

This is goOgle’s  step towards making its search more socially bent and increase the relevancy of the search results. You can say that is goOgle equivalent to FaceboOk’s Like but still very different.

GoOgle launched “+1” a few months ago in their search results. Enabling you to “+1” any search result or Ad you would like to recommend to your social circle and the next time anyone in your social circle searches and encounter your recommended search result.. He’ll see a caption below the search result saying “You +1’d this”.

Its like going to a new restaurant and finding on the door a note from your friend telling you its goOd. (For what I normally depend on 4Square.) But its not only for restaurants its for “Everything” (For what we DO depend on goOgle).

See example in the image below:

+1'd this

+1'd this

How goOgle determines my friends/connection/Social circle?

GoOd question! To know the answer to this first goto you goOgle Dashboard and scroll down to “Social Circle and Content”

There goOgle organizes all your social connections basically divided into 3 categories:

  • Direct connections from your Google chat buddies and contacts
  • Direct connections from links through Google Profiles or Connected accounts
  • Secondary connections that are publicly associated with your direct connections

So your connections consists of all you goOgle chat friends, your goOgle Contacts, your connections from connected accounts like twitter etc. and direct connections of your connections i.e your secondary connections (Friends of your Friends).

Why Can’t I see it in my search results?

First your have to create your goOgle profile if you don’t have one create one.. as all of your +1s get stored in your goOgle profile.

If you have goOgle profile then also you may or may not see +1 button in search results as goOgle haven’t rolled it out to all of its users. Currently its only visible to some of the randomly chosen users and its currently available for English searches on goOgle.COM only.

But you can activate this feature by enrolling in the experiment by goOgle here..

Once you join the experiment you will start seeing +1 button on the search results but only on goOgle.COM.

Where can I see all my +1s?

All your +1s get stored in your goOgle profile. You can manage all your +1s from the “+1” Tab in your goOgle Profile. You can even delete your +1s from there which you don’t want to recommend anymore.

You can see an example of goOgle’s +1 Button right here on our website in the top right side of this article just below the article’s heading.

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
    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.
