Google is making moves and people are wondering what this could all mean.

A book to learn how to get in the search engine's good side. A must read for SEO.
Well I have been working with the company website ( the company I work for) trying to see what it’s page rank was and how well my SEO skills are. Doing that usually consisted of me hitting about 10 websites every day and me making the adjustments to the company website I felt like I needed to make.
Well, just as you would, I got tired of all of the Google searches I had to do and bookmarks to crank through. so I found a site that some dang dude was selling a php script that would supposedly do all the work for me. Well the program barely did but it gave me some insight as to what labors I needed to perform on the PHP script to make it work like I needed to get the information i needed
I needed page rank information, I needed to see how many index pages in search engines I had, I also needed to find how many websites linked to me. So I took this clump of crap I bought for like four dollars and started asking around if I could use tools from the sites the guy originally incorporated. Sad thing is, I have not gotten the “value” part in a monetary pattern. Soooo, It will not tell you what your website is worth.. Heck I don’t really have much faith in any of those sites. If you know of one that works really well and is spot on, please tell me where it is. I will contact the site owner and see what i can get done, for him, for me , for the users.
Oh there is a “whois” tool added so you can check if a domain you want is open, sorry I do not sell website domain names. I do how ever like Netfirms. They seem to have the best prices. I don’t care much for their storage though.
Proofreading the TruXter Tech News post, I looked at the advertisement on the page because it caught my eye.
I noticed something fishy.
I thought Google was the sworn enemy of Microsoft. But as I see here it pays Google to advertise its phone sales area.
You see that?
Hahaha , holy crap.

Microsoft put in a bid to purchase yahoo, this was all over the news and the internet but not everyone has heard this yet. What does this say for the current state of yahoo stock ? Did this do anything to Apple stock? There was a crash in Apple stock right at the same time as the offer purchase. Did the Microsoft stock rise? Did everyone bail out on yahoo?
Is google really on top of the game like everyone seems to be saying?.. I think not. I do not think they have the banks behind them financing them as Msn or the big Y! have behind them.
I do not believe that Google is beating Yahoo or Microsoft at anything. I work on mess loads upon mess loads of computers every year. What I see when I boot up these computers and open the browser is always the same thing. Yahoo for the home page and Yahoo toolbar.
I would even go so far as to say that one in every 20 computers I work on in a year, have something else other than just plain old Internet Explorer. I mean, if more computers used Firefox (which everyone is saying is the fastest growing browser) than what I see, I would assume that more people are using the default Firefox start/home page, but they just aren’t. We all know that all start pages have search boxes.
Do I believe Google has a superior search? Well, no. Not really. It’s not like it finds stuff that the other search engines do not find.
Microsoft used to have chat rooms. These chat rooms where mostly split by the city you live in. Each populated city had a capacity of 50 people per chat room. If the chat room exceeded 50 people, an overflow room would be created. Some days there where up to 15 overflow rooms. In each room there where three advertisements with “rotating banners,” Microsoft created this line of code. The rotating banner means that the ads displayed in the ad-space would change to a new advertisement every 3-5 minutes. Most “chatters” would stay in the chat rooms for hours or days, just leaving their computer on and never exiting from the chat room. This must have been huge revenue for Microsoft, but they shut the doors on the free chat rooms and decided to put a fee on them. People where there for the free place to congregate, not because they where addicted. MSN closed the doors on the whole chat room idea simply because they have the money to toss around like that. The whole idea of being free and meeting local people in a moderated area was dead.
Yahoo, on the other hand, still has chat rooms divided by location, but not in such detail that MSN had. Yahoo divides by state. Yahoo also mandates you use their messenger because the ads are integrated in the messenger. My opinion, this is a bad idea. You can no longer just join the chat room from a link you find on the internet and install a small flash program then be on your way. You now have to download a massive install program with tons of hidden crap that you can opt out of during the install, if you read closely. This, of course, is another nail in the coffin for yahoo chat. People want their chats simple.
If Google made a city chat that was moderated by humans on an I.R.C. service like Wylderide, there would stand a great chance of zero tolerance of porn bots, additionally age verification could be worked out. Google has nothing that keeps people staring at their stuff, just glances. If Google would acquire Chatcity or revive Excite chat, hell even create something new and better, I would have no doubt in Google being on top.
Next time you are in a computer repair shop, ask the guy behind the counter “What is the most common start page and toolbar on computers you fix?” you will have your answer. Oddly enough, I find myself saying what everyone else says “Google” but truthfully it is not the most common. Not by far.
If they change their home page at all from Msn, it’s Yahoo…………………..
