Is spam really that bad? There has been a rise in the level of scrutiny “spam” get on the internet? But is it really that bad, yes automated spam does clog up you inbox’s or if you run a blog your comment lists but mostly now you can easily block spam so that you never have to ever see it, but people are complaining more than ever about spam and not by automated means but people simply trying to make a living by advertising about there website on others.. Time and time again I see on forums people moaning and groaning if some one simply posts a link on a website… as it seems posting a link on the internet immediately implies you are owning the website you are linking to if it is not one of the super giant website. Are people really that petty now that they feel a need to jump in and complain when someone posts a link? I think they are! Spam links have been particularly been picked out as the worse thing you cna now do on the internet thanks to seo and google….Google has been penalizing website that have to many spam links either on them or pointing to them meaning webmasters have now created a culture that has passed onto the rest of the internet world that spam links are the worse crime you can possibly do on the internet. Internet marketing is a big sector in India and is suffering thanks to the stigma many internet marketers now get if found advertising or even just looking to advertise.. It is now illegal for small business to promote their website online. Online spam or rather promotion of websites is needed for the internet in order to keep our freedom of speech and stopping the BIG INTERNET GIANTS from ruling on the internet. So remember this next time you see someone posting a link dont insult them or if your a moderator on a forum simply ban them ask yourself why they are posting that link and maybe help them out.
Democracy is meant to give everybody a say, every no matter how rich or poor can have a vote which can potentially impacts a future of a country. But is this concept of democracy real? Take England for example you have 3 major parties, the conservatives you are currently in power thanks to a coalition government with the liberal democrats who took power from Labor who where previously in power. But fundamentally all of these parties no matter who is in power are all the same.Since the coalition government (something that theoretically shouldn’t work if both parties truly stood up for different views as they should) apart from tougher measures brought in to bring down the deficit which labour would have had to do eventually anyway there has been no real change to how England is run since the coalition got into power, this just goes to show that no matter which of the three political parties you vote for at the end of the day you will still have the same government run by the rich.
So it stands to reason that on vote day that when it all comes down to it you do not really have choice, you do have the choice of voting for a minor party however the majority of the general public will tend not to vote for these small politcal parties because:
- The party hadn’t had the funds to promote itself properly unlike the 3 main parties.
- The media will try to discourage voters from voting for a “far” left or right party, the media will find or even make up all it can to deter voters from voting anything other than the 3 main political parties.
- People feel that voting for a minor party will not vote and they are giving there vote away so to speak.
When it comes down to it all three major political parties in England are run fundamentally built to help the rich. Plutocracy as it is known is what helps drive the political parties in England and not democracy.
As you can see even in developed countries democracy does not really exist.
Having the right design that is fast and responsive is something all businesses should make sure their website is. Website that are slow and are only available to those on a desktop can limit you to only desktop users when more and more people are using mobiles to surf the web nowadays! The search engines also know this too so that is why you need to make sure for seo reasons that your site is structured right and because mobiles cannot handle as much resource as desktop computer can (yet) you will need to limit the image sizes and loading speed… A great example of a responsive design a website that is super quick is this Sheffield webdesign website called jmx solutions, It has it all, from a responsive design to quick loading of pages, try and re-size your browser window and you will see that the website adapts to the changing size (even the images re size accordingly) and fits much better, this web design company has also got site speed spot on as well making their site so fast you are not waiting at all for it to load when you click something. After looking at the sites source code and style sheet it is seen that all this is done through clever css and design, only using what is needed and making use of responsive css to re-size elements is easy and makes website so much quicker. Search engines want more and more websites to be like this as it improve their search engines results if searchers are able to click a search result and are able to view the website fully without any limitations regardless of what device they are using to view it… having a super quick website means no waiting which further enhances the search results too as no one like waiting around for answers! When the search engines are happy like this it means your site will happily sit at the top of the results for all to see (well that is as long as your off page is just as good as your on page design).
The Google webmasters forum , supposed to be a place where failing webmasters go to seek help from other webmasters to help them better rank in the search results of Google, but the Google webmasters forum is not the best place to seek advice about your website or seo far from it. If you post a question and your website on the Google webmaster forum you will be met by a number of trolls who sadly just post utter rubbish and hurl insults at desperate webmasters. Everyone it seems who has lost their rankings and wants help on the webmasters forum will be called a spammer. Even if the website owners says that they are a victim of negative seo and that is why their rankings have gone down the trolls will say that negative seo doesn’t exist and its spam links you have created that is causing your site to be penalized in Google which is rather a contradiction at best. There are also people who have been complaining that after they posted their site on the webmasters forum that they later got hit by negative seo… not just a few webmasters have reported this but many! If you are looking for seo advice or reasons why your site has been hit by a penalty on google.. the google webmasters forum is not the best place to go, you will not be talking to Google engineers that configure the Google search engine or even Google employees you will only be getting views from other webmasters so what really is the point when their are hundreds of other better seo forum out there?
Guest posting used to be a chance where webmasters and experts could give their opinion and promote their site on other websites… but thanks to evil google this practice has more or less been destroyed or rather if you are doing it for seo gain and just promoting your site you will be sadly disappointed as you guest posts are manually reviewed and your site penalized. It is kind of harsh and begs the question if you cant create guest posts and pr to your own website what can you do? Many webmaster are up in arms and very confused as to how to promote their businesses and not get penalized in the serps because of their efforts. According to google any website that is trying to manipulate search engine rankings deserves to be penalized… proving as to whether it was the actual site owner trying to manipulate rankings is another story. Anyway guest posting has been demoted to a nono in the seo world.. it used to be one of the best ways to advertise your site and improve you seo… but not anymore if your caught. The internet police ie google will go around penalizing guest poster who they think are just guest posting to improve rankings a obvious sign is if the guest poster has a do follow link back to their site in the about author section. Guest posting used to be a way to easily gets lots of quick high pr links back to your site but is losing its grip in the seo world thanks to the risk guest posting now carries if your links are deemed not for users but for search engines bots. Should you do guest posting? Only if you write a really good article and the links in your article must be relevant and on topic to what you are talking about. the links should be purposeful and something to help users find out more or something users might find handy when reading your article and not something aimed at just boosting another site in the serps… I tis quite hard to judge a intention of a link but some links are easily seen as just for seo than others make sure if you do write guest posts that your on the right side of the google internet law.
India wants Pakistan to be stable with a leadership that isn’t connected to terrorism. A more secure and stable Pakistan will ensure a safer India. Is Pakistan yet ready to become more stable economically and socially?
India has always hold the view that Pakistan is a a loose cannon and resentment has been set deeply in both the minds of the Indian people and Pakistani people, most dont even know how the rivalry and resentment began for many many years. But India doe not want Pakistan to be so unstable and wants Pakistan and its people to succeed. We want Pakistan to have peace and not war.. but this is much easier said then done. The fighting going on in Pakistan has been caused by terrorists which need Pakistan to stay unstable so that their operations and training can carry on undisturbed. Many of the radical Muslim terrorists that cause so much terror across the world have roots in Pakistan, bin laden was also captured in Pakistan. Bin laden lay hiding in a huge mansion undetected for years in Pakistan… How come the authorities did not know he was there? Is the Pakistani government helping harbor terrorism? Having a more democratic and non corrupt government in Pakistan surely will help Pakistan and India. India has nothing against the Pakistani people only the terrorists that live there. One of the main problems with terrorism in Pakistan is that it is funded by other countries such as the rich Saudi Arabia. Having a stable Pakistan with a less corrupt government will make peace talks and negotiations with our neighbor far easier. Trust is also key at the moment we cannot trust the government of Pakistan…. Democracy must be restored in Pakistan and to do this the Musharraf regime must be brought to a stop. Bringing terrorism to a end will make building a infrastructure and that can create goods and trade.. maybe one day India will be trading with Pakistan…helping each other out! Is it going to be that easy? the answer to that is no… there are still plenty of ideologies of terrorism that is sinking the middle east and creating a never ending new generations of terrorism, you must show that these ideologies are wrong to brake this vicious circle that is causing all these problems.
Thanks to improving technology and transport the world as we know it has changed and the way we do business has also changed.. In the past it would have took days to travel to one end of India to the other.. now thanks to better transport it doesn’t even take a day to travel to the other end of the world. Globalization has opened up India to new businesses opportunities.. but has it really benefited India? In this article we are going to try and find out. India economy is growing and is as strong as it has ever been… India has always had a strong economy a center of trade and manufacture. But is globalization taking advantage of India.. living standards of many Indians are still quite poor, many still live in poverty despite the growth in jobs in India this is because globalization and capitalism has squeezed wages so much that even though India is producing goods for the western world to compete with other countries factories here in India have had to reduce the wages so much to compete. India relies on manufacture and “low skilled jobs” to produce it goods which it then sells to affluent countries across the globe, whereas more economically stable countries like England, Japan and America rely on “skilled” jobs and innovation to fuel their economies. Because anyone can do the jobs found in the factories in India it means that demand and the need to keep costs down means that wages are pushed right down. Even working condition in Indian factory’s are at breaking point whereby deaths on the factory floors is common occurrence due to such horrendous conditions worker must work in.
Globalization has meant that India is no longer producing goods for itself but for the rest of the world meaning it is pushing itself beyond it means and making the average person in India live under the poverty line.. The only ones to benefit from globalization are the people receiving cheap goods in other countries and the rich factory owners. The average worker will be working for near nothing barely enough to survive…. These workers maybe working “unskilled jobs” but that doesn’t mean anyone really can do these jobs. Countries are taking advantage of and has trapped india due to its weak infrastructure and it huge population to manufactuer cheap goods for them. India will always trail behind and work for other countries if something isn’t done.
Because of the way globalization works India will always be behind and will always be working for another country. Better infrastructure and education must be adopted in India to help India get out of the trap of globalization.
According to a new google video by Matt cutts the person who is head on tackling spam on the google search engines (A bit of a saddo job) if you site auto generates meta description or you use the same meta description for all of your pages it can be bad for seo, instead he says that the best thing to do is leave the meta description alone…. Some webmasters are quite confused and even worried about this new video some saying
“This maybe so for say forum’s when a forum reply may answer a searcher query rather than a auto generated meta tag.. but for eCommerce sites this advice is rubbish…. as your not answering a query and its all about ctr and trying to entice people into clicking your site.. ”
“This is all about google becoming the internet.. ie google wants to scrape exact answer in website meta description so people dont have to even click on the site. EVIL! But its google and a according to a moronic judge with that book ripping case Google is doing a great job… ”
As you can see there really is a lot of distrust now towards google and its “advice”, some feel that the advice google lies to webmasters is more of a way to control the internet and webmasters rather than to help people rank. Meta descriptions have been around nearly as long as the internet so why has google only just decided to tell users not to really bother with their own? What do you think about this latest video by google.. do you agree what Matt has to say or are you with the vast majority of webmasters who feel google are just trying to manipulate and control the internet? comment below and have your say.
The IBM Watson cognitive platform is a super computer that is apparently the most intelligent computer in the world. The Watson super computer has been designed so that the computer can read and interpret data from natural language, looking at meaning. The Watson super computer first became famous in 2011 when a televised game of jeopardy showed just how powerful Watson was. On the show Watson was up against other opponents who where human and Watson beat them all answering the question far quicker and better then any of the human players. In preparation for the show Watson was given encyclopedic information with which it used to work out the answers to the jeopardy questions.
Watson was not able to answer all the answer correctly though, when the questions were ambiguous or had little clues Watson struggled to properly interpret what the question was asking thus could not find the right answer.
Over 100 different techniques help the Watson super computer analyze, interpret data generates it hypothesis of what the hypothesis actually are most likely to mean and select the best and most fitting data.
Watson can be compared to many online search engines like google and bing of how it can find answers according to peoples queries but the only difference is what IBM can do is a lot more advance and can actually read between the lines using cognitive analysis giving the user exactly what they are looking for rather then something that could answer their question.
Watson is a life saver?
Watson has been incorporated into the medical world helping doctors and nurses quickly find medical information and diagnosis, It has been revealed that 90% of nurses who have access to Watson use its information to treat patients. However some people are critical on the use of Watson in the medical industry saying that relying on a computer to make informed decisions that could mean life and death is dangerous and foolish and that doctors and nurses should not rely solely on the information provided by Watson.
Watson is not artificial intelligence as it does not think for itself, it can only analyses data using mathematics… if watson comes across something new it will be useless.
With a growing number of poeple online and a touch economic climate where jobs are scarce more and more people are trying to find quick and easy ways to make some money online. Many people looking for ways to make money are fooled into thinking they can easily make some money from GPT website. GPT stands for get paid to do, the idea of these website is that users complete offers which may take the form of survey’s, clicking ads, subscribing to things, watching videos, downloading programs (often full of viruses) and even buying products online to receive points after you have earned so many points you will then be able to use these points that you have earn to then cash out… some website say that they will give you cash through paypal for your points whereas other will say you can buy things from their shop (prizes) with the points. This sounds far to good to be true right? And you would be right, it is far to good to be true as these websites the vast majority of the time will not pay out. In other words you will be spending your time filling out and doing these offers pointlessly and for your account to be terminated at the end (for what ever sorry excuse the admin can think of at the time). Not all users will be banned like this and payment refused after all how can they get more fools to register and slave away if nobody is going to promote their site? Mostly 90% of people using these sites are banned when they request to “cash out” the website will keep all money you made them from doing the offer for themselves (Completed offers are paid for by affiliate advertisers per completion so there really is no excuse these website not paying you when yo want to cash out.. these website just dont want to give you your fair share even when they have already been paid by the advertisers). Even if these website pay you, you are still being used it will take you a long time to fill out and complete the offers by the end of it you would have only made a couple pennies at most. You might as well use your time a lot more productively. My advise to you would be to avoid these manipulative website that target people desperate for cash… Don’t be fooled there are plenty more ways to make money online then working all hours for very little if anything making scammers rich.
