Why This Kolaveri Di ?

A boy sees a beautiful girl, falls in love with her blindly, and proposes her immediately. She will say, ‘No’ at first, then she may accept him later or else she may reject. In that case the boy starts growing beard, drink beer, smoke or if he is intelligent, he may consider her as his inspiration for his life. In some cases, he may sing his anguish. Here is a song which can be singed in such situations, ‘Why this Kolaveri di?’, is a highly popular song and it is a rage among millions of students and youngsters, especially in blogs, social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter and video sharing site like You Tube. It is from the movie ‘3’, starring Dhanush and Shruthi Hassan, directed by Aishwarya Dhanush is yet to be released. I loved the song so so much and that’s the reason I am sharing the same here...

Almost everyone can understand this song, anyways here are the meaning for few words: "Kolaveri" - Killer rage or Murderous Rage,"Soup Song" - Love failure Song,"Soup Boys" - Boys who failed in love. If you need to know the meaning of any more words let me know so that I will add it here.. Keep Enjoying..




Inspired by the song I wish to pen down a Nisaiku after a long time

I want to anguish in tears
Her words rip my heart

WHY THIS KOLAVERI DI?

Her words rip my heart
I want to anguish in tears
Let light's be switched off

What is Keyword Proximity, Prominence, Density and Frequency?

If you are a SEO then you must be aware of these terms Keyword Proximity, Keyword Prominence, Keyword Density, Keyword Frequency. These are the basic but most important factor while you are doing keyword optimization. Keyword are the bread and butter for search engine as well as for your audience which will attract them to your website but only if you placed them in organized way otherwise it will harm your website and you will not be visible in search engine for long time.

Not many webmaster cares of Keyword prominence & Keyword proximity while doing on page optimization they end up with placing their keywords in Title Tag & Meta tags (i.e Description & Keywords). Those who are familiar with keyword density they take care of keyword stuffing but not of proximity & prominence. So, Follow the instruction given below and rank your website higher than your competitors.

Keyword Prominence – It refers to the position of the keyword in your content. To increase keyword prominence place your keyword in the beginning of the page. By increasing your keyword prominence you will achieve:-

    * Better Rankings
    * Higher crawl rate

To check keyword prominence for your content your can search for any online tool and you will get all the details.

Keyword Proximity – If you are optimizing your website for keyword phrase which consist two or more word then you must take care of keyword proximity because search engine count keyword proximity into their account while ranking the keyword. For example If you are optimizing “Men Shampoo” then try to use both words together instead of spreading the word like “This is the shampoo which is used by Men”.

Keyword Density – Keyword density is used to check the number of time keyword or keyword phrase repeated in an article or web page. More repeated keyword will increase the keyword density that could be counted as keyword stuffing which don’t love any search engine.  So, you need to be careful while using keyword in an article. For example you are writing a content of 500 words and you are using your keyword five times it means your keyword density is 1 percent. According to search engine guidelines keyword should not be more than 3-4 % otherwise it could be treated as keyword stuffing and result in keyword falling in SERP.

Keyword Frequency – Keyword frequency is the number of times a particular keyword found on a website. Do not get confused there is very small difference between keyword density and keyword frequency. Keyword density is used in percentage and counted on single webpage or article while Keyword frequency is counted in number for whole website.

Video Recap of Weekly Search Buzz :: December 9, 2011

I have a shorter video this week for you but some good tidbits of knowledge. Google may have done something to cause a flux in the search results earlier this week. Someone claimed quick Panda recoveries, but will it last? I posted our Google webmaster report for December. Google Images has a solution to bust the frame busters. Google has added a new link element markup for multilingual pages. Google has a new graphing calculator right in the search results. Twitter pushed out a new design yesterday. Google had a logo for Diego Rivera, which upset some Americans right after Pearl Harbor's anniversary. I wanted to end by thanking Wysz and the other Googlers for having me this week and nice shoes and socks! That was this past week at the Search Engine Roundtable.

Google Maps UK Powered By Google

Google announced they have finally switched off their third-party maps data provider in the UK and is now powering the UK maps with their own data. They've done this in the U.S. and other countries and now have made the switch in the UK.

This applies for the UK, Germany, Finland and Sweden. How do you know if it is Google Maps data and not a third party? It says so on the bottom:

 

Google said:
You may notice many improvements to Google Maps in these countries, such as improved water bodies and more comprehensive local park coverage. Many of these and other changes are the result of us working directly with a variety of organizations, agencies and data providers. For example, Germany's Federal Agency for Cartography and Geodesy supplied us harmonized data from surveying and mapping agencies of all 16 federal states. And in the case of Finland, we acquired water body data directly from the National Land Survey. We're thankful to these and other data providers for helping us ensure that our digital maps accurately reflect real life.
Also, now when you see an issue with the map data within the UK, Germany, Finland and Sweden you should click the "report a problem" link.

The New Twitter

The big news yesterday was that Twitter announced the launch of their new Twitter design. The new design is aimed at making it easier to use and easier to find and discover things within the ecosystem.




My favorite parts of the announcement is a new TweetDeck for Chrome and Mac OS App Store plus the new app and finally the embeddable tweets.

On the search side, Greg Sterling reported that the search was improve but said, "although no one could tell me specifically what they were."

Here is an embedded tweet:

                                       "I like the new TweetDeck for Mac OS"

You can see the embed tweet link when you view the tweet detail page:

embed tweet 

Then a pop up box comes up with the embed options:

 

To see more details on the new features, designs and ability to discover new content, see fly.twitter.com. To get it yourself, just update your mobile app and Twitter should give you the new features on Twitter.com soon after.

Bing Webmaster Tools Showing Numbers Instead Of Keywords

A Bing Webmaster Help thread has a user posting a weird bug in Bing Webmaster Tools.



The bug is found under the traffic reports, in the "Rank and Traffic Stats" section, under the graph where it lists out the keywords you rank for and how valuable they are on a CPC basis.

In that section, instead of just listing out keywords, Bing is also listing out weird strings of numbers. Here is a picture from my Bing Webmaster Tools account:


Car Driving All By Itself at Google

 

I was walking around the Google campus with Wysz looking for cool things to see and guess what? A self driving car drove past us and stopped at a red light - yea, all by itself, it is self driving. So Wysz and I snapped some pictures on our respective phones.

This was the first time I've seen a real self driving car in person. I've seen the street view cars around but not one of these.

I'd love to get one of these one days.

Google's Schmidt At Le Web

 

Eric Schmidt, the executive chairman of Google and former CEO, spoke at the Le Web conference yesterday in Paris. He spoke on a lot of topics, much covered at Techmeme.

Here is a photo of one of the larger banners at the conference, showing Eric Schmidt on a live projection screen as one of the key speakers. The picture was taken by Le Web and shared on Flickr.

Day After Pearl Harbor, Google Displays Logo For Communist Diego Rivera

Google-Diego-Rivera-Logo
Today, December 8th, Google has a worldwide logo for Diego Rivera. The logo is beautiful, showing off the spirit and work of the well-known artist, Diego Rivera. He was born 125 years ago on December 8, 1886 in Guanajuato, Guanajuato, Mexico and died on November 24, 1957 in Mexico City at the age of 70.

He is most well known for his murals painted across Mexico City, Chapingo, Cuernavaca, San Francisco, Detroit, and New York City. But he was also known as being an active communist, which is what is upsetting some Americans.

If you look at the Google Doodle forum you will see post after post with complaints that Google didn't have a logo for the anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attacks yesterday and to make matters worse, they had a logo for a communist the day after. They feel it is a slap in American's faces.

One Google user said in a Google Web Search Help post:
While Diego Rivera is a great artist, today is a day supposed to be set aside to remember those that fell that day 70 years ago when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. So today to see you honor Rivera and yet not mention the thousands that fell on this day 70 years ago saddens me. Usually I love your doodles, but, today I just found it sad that the decision you made was to go with an artists birthday and not honor those brave men and women that perished on this day 70 years ago.
To be fair, Google does not post logos for sad events and Pearl Harbor is one of those sad events.

Upcoming Google Webmaster Hangouts

At some point, I am going to have to stop reporting these hangouts as news because they do them all the time. Don't get me wrong, these hangouts are great and it is the first truly consistent live chat Google has offered to webmasters - so I am so happy they do this.



The next upcoming hangouts were posted by Googler John Mueller this morning on Google +. They include one that we already missed:
  • Thursday, 8 December, at 10am London time, English office hours with Pierre
  • Thursday, 8 December, at 2pm Seattle time, English office hours with Jonathan
  • Friday, 9 December, at 2pm Zürich time, German office hours with John
  • Friday, 9 December, at 3pm London time, Arabic office hours with Pierre and Anouar
  • Tuesday, 13 December, at 10am Seattle time, English office hours with Susan
  • Friday, 16 December, at 2pm Zürich time, German office hours with John
  • Friday, 16 December, at 2pm London time, English office hours with Pierre
  • Friday, 23 December, at 2pm Zürich time, German office hours with John
In fact, you might want to bookmark the office hours page, because they update that page with future times often.

Hope to see you in one of them.

Google Search Cursor Goes Missing

Over the past week or so, I have been seeing reports from Google users that the cursor is not showing up in the Google search box.



Google is aware of the issue and said it would be resolved soon, but it seems like even about a week later, some are still experiencing the issue.

The image above right shows a blinking cursor, which is typical of what you should see when you place your cursor in a text box. But for some users, there is no cursor showing up in the box even when you click in the box.

A Google Web Search Help thread:
When Google.com loads, the flashing cursor is inside the search box and you can start typing right away. With Google.ca you have to move the mouse into the search box, click, then start typing.
I believe the issue is only affecting some Internet Explorer users, including IE9 users.

Google Images Busts The Frame Busters

A WebmasterWorld thread has discussion from webmasters who started to notice that their framebuster scripts no longer bust the Google Image search frames on Google Images.


When you do a search on Google Image search and click on a result, Google shows you the image in a larger view with more details. You can then click through to the image to see more. But many webmasters do not like that Google shows the image in a frame on their site, they want the traffic. So they deploy code to bust the frame and take you to their site.

Google has disabled many framebuster scripts so that the searcher stays on Google's search results preview page.

Levo in the forums said, "Well, apparently Google Image started iframing using "sandbox" - an HTML5 attribute, which disables scripts on the page." So it works on some browsers, not all.

You can learn more about the sandbox attribute and how it works.

Have you seen this?

Google Shoes On A Googler

 

I hung out a bit with Michael Wyszomierski, aka Wysz, at Google yesterday and he let me snap a picture of his Google shoes with his YouTube socks. How colorful!

December Google Search Results Update?

I made a mention of this in our December 2011 Google Webmaster report but there is ongoing discussion around this topic.

Some SEOs and Webmasters are noticing shuffles in the Google rankings. We are not sure if they are Panda related or just normal Google flux.

A WebmasterWorld thread and Cre8asite Forums thread has discussion around these "shuffles."
EGOL, a Cre8asite moderator, said:
I watch a limited number of SERPs but the ones that I am watching show a very large amount of flux - compared to what I normally see. 
For moderately competitive keywords sites ranking at positions 3 through 10 are jumping up and down the rankings like crazy... and sites that I have never noticed before are flashing in and out of positions 5 through 10.
EGOL rarely talks about Google changes like this, so for him to notice, it might be something.

Some are saying this might be a Panda update but at this point, it is hard to tell. 

No word from Google with anything official.

Google Hosting SEO Advice


The blog post goes through common hosting related issues Google spots, including ways for hosting providers recognize, diagnose, and fix these issues.

It covers:
  • Blocking of Googlebot crawling
  • Availability issues
  • Invalid SSL certificates
  • Wildcard DNS
  • Misconfigured virtual hosting
  • Content duplication through hosting-specific URLs
  • Soft error pages
  • Content modification and frames
  • Spam and malware
The invalid SSL certs is one that I found somewhat new:
For SSL certificates to be valid for your website, they need to match the name of the site. Common problems include expired SSL certificates and servers misconfigured such that all websites on that server use the same certificate. Most web browsers will try warn users in these situations, and Google tries to alert webmasters of this issue by sending a message via Webmaster Tools. The fix for these problems is to make sure to use SSL certificates that are valid for all your website’s domains and subdomains your users will interact with.

Google Panda Recovery Overnight

A WebmasterWorld thread has a post from an SEO who has been a WebmasterWorld member since 2006 claiming he has recovered from the Google Panda smack down over night.



How did he do it? He moved some of the pandalized content from that old site to a new one. He said since doing so, in 24 hours, he has noticed a 300% increase in traffic. 

He wrote:
I'd heard quite a bit about getting out from under Panda just by moving sub-domains or pages so I finally gave it a try. I moved a half dozen pages that were drawing a few hundred visitors a day from Google on my Pandalized (down 80%) site to my Panda pleased (up over 300%) site this weekend. 
It took a little over 24 hours for Google to start indexing the pages on the new site so I'm not sure if Monday results represent a full day. Of the half dozen pages, three were slightly above their pre-Panda level (year-over-year) on Monday, and three were around 20% under. The average Google traffic for the six pages Monday was around 250 visitors each.

So now the waiting begins for the next Panda cycle. I'm expecting one of three things to happen, so it will probably be the fourth.
What he should expect that when the Panda algorithm runs, that if the content he moved over is the reason the old site downgraded in rankings, that the new site will be hit also. And maybe, if the old site no longer has that content, the old site might increase in rankings. Why? Well, the pandalized content may have hurt the rest of the site and by moving it off the main site, it may improve the ranking of the other content on the site.
Your thoughts?

Google Adds Graphing Calculator To Search Results

Yesterday, Google announced the addition of a graphical calculator for your mathematical search queries. A lot like Wolfram Alpha but Googly.

You basically punch in an equation and Google will return a nice graph that you can navigate, zoom in and out and so on.

Google [x/2, (x/2)^2, ln(x), cos(pi*x/5)] and get this:

 

Wolfram Alpha returns:

 

Of course, Google shared their true love for this feature:

Google's Cutts: No Such Thing As Trust Rank

The concept of trustrank dates back several years but is it something Google uses?

Not according to a video from Google's Matt Cutts, at least not by name. In the video, Matt said, "It's not that we have something specifically called trust rank." Google has a trust factor, but it is made of several ranking algorithm factors, which may be referred to "trust."
Here is his video:



Here is the transcript:
0:00
0:01 Today's question comes from Canada.
0:03 And the question is from JZ Becker, who wants to know, can
0:08 you talk a bit about ranking signals like trust?
0:10 We hear these mentioned from time to time by Googlers, but
0:13 there's no official documentation available from
0:16 Google on the topic.
0:18 Great question.
0:19 Trust is sort of a catch-all term that we use.
0:23 So PageRank is the most well known type of trust. It's
0:27 looking at links and how important those links are.
0:30 So if you have a lot of very high quality links, then you
0:32 tend to earn a lot of trust with Google.
0:35 There's other signals.
0:36 There's over 200 different signals that
0:37 we use in our ranking.
0:39 But you can kind of break them down into this notion of sort
0:42 of trust and how well you match a particular query.
0:45 So how topical you are.
0:47 What's your information retrieval score?
0:48 Just on the merits of what the user typed in.
0:51 PageRank is one of these trust-type algorithms that's
0:54 trying to figure out--
0:55 we use several words--
0:56 reputation, trust, authority.
1:00 And it's not that we have something specifically called
1:03 trust rank, or we have something specifically called
1:06 authority rank, or something like that.
1:08 We're basically just trying to say, in the general scheme of
1:11 things, how much reputation, or how much are we willing to
1:15 believe that this is a high quality page, or a high
1:17 quality site?
1:18 Those sorts of things.
1:19 So in general, what you want to have is a
1:21 very reputable site.
1:23 But you also want to have a site that's about, or a page
1:25 that's about, the topic that the user typed in.
1:27 So in an ideal world, you've got both.
1:29 It's very high on the reputation scale, but it's
1:31 also exactly what the user was looking for in terms of typing
1:34 in and finding a match for what they were typing.
1:37 So we use a lot of different words like
1:39 trust, reputation, authority.
1:40 And PageRank is a specific example of
1:44 those sorts of things.
1:45 But we mean it in a more general sense.
1:47 It's not, typically, a specific algorithm.
1:49 It's just trying to figure out how much-- if a regular user
1:52 saw this, maybe without even seeing a query at all--
1:55 how much would they consider it a high quality page?
1:57 How much would they consider it really useful, as far as
2:00 being able to answer whatever questions that
2:02 particular site was about?
2:04 Hope that helps.

Google Improves Multilingual Support With Markup

Google announced better support for webmasters to communicate their multilingual content to Google with a new link element markup.

Googler, Pierre Far, said on Google +:
Do you work with multiregional or multilingual websites? Whether you use the same content on all sites (with minor differences, say localized pricing) or you fully translate your content, you can now annotate pages to help us consolidate the signals of such pages and also help us show the correct regional page to users in search.
Here is how it works:
Imagine you have an English language page hosted at http://www.example.com/, with a Spanish alternative at http://es.example.com/. You can indicate to Google that the Spanish URL is the Spanish-language equivalent of the English page in one of two ways:
  • HTML link element. In the HTML section of http://www.example.com/, add a link element pointing to the Spanish version of that webpage at http://es.example.com/, like this:
    <link rel="alternate" hreflang="es" href="http://es.example.com/" />
  • HTTP header. If you publish non-HTML files (like PDFs), you can use an HTTP header to indicate a different language version of a URL:
    Link: <http://es.example.com/>; rel="alternate"; hreflang="es"
If you have multiple language versions of a URL, each language page in the set must use rel="alternate" hreflang="x" to identify the other language versions. For example, if your site provides content in French, English, and Spanish, the Spanish version must include a rel="alternate" hreflang="x" link to both the English and the French versions, and the English and French versions must each include a similar link pointing to each other and to the Spanish site.
