How to get a Custom URL for your Google+ Page

A custom URL (or vanity URL) is a way that condenses your profile URL into something readable and easily remembered. For example, this is what a normal Google Plus URL looks like.

This is my official  Google Plus Page. Check it out!
And this is the Google Plus URL for a celebrity, specifically Dheepan Seo.

At the moment, not everyone can get their Google Plus Vanity URL. Google is still slowly rolling out these special custom URLs in waves, so it is unclear when exactly regular businesses can get them. However, you can make yourself eligible for Google Plus’ new initiative “Google+ Direct Connect.

What is Google+ Direct Connect?Google+ Direct Connect (GDC) let’s users navigate to your Google+ Page when using Google Search. When searching for a brand or celebrity, you can put a ‘+’ in front of the search term. When you use the ‘+’ operator before your search query, it tells Google that you want to find a Google+ page. For example, if you searched for ‘+youtube’ or ‘+pepsi’ on Go…

Google Rich Snippets 15% Reduction Google Closing Authorship Project?

As many of you know, Matt Cutts, Google's head of search spam, announced at PubCon that you should expect a 15% reduction in the amount of rich snippets and authorship displayed in the Google search results.
There are several threads, including one at WebmasterWorld where webmasters and SEOs are preparing for the reduction in the richer display in the Google search results. Many noticed increases in click through rates and thus higher sales and traffic because of the increase in CTR. But if your site doesn't make the cut and you are part of the 15% reduction, how will you recoup?
To me, it makes sense. Why show rich snippets for all sites that have the markup? Google should reserve them for sites that they deem authoritative enough to display them. There are tons of spammy sites marked up with it. Let alone sites abusing it and spamming rich snippets.
A year ago, it seemed Google began cutting back on displaying rich snippets. This is all while making it easier fo…

Google AdWords Ranking Factor for Ad Rank Adds - Cpc Bid and quality score and Third Factor: Ad Extensions

Google announced that AdWords extensions and formats are now going to be part of the overall AdWords ad rank formula going forward.Google said, "ad extensions typically improve clickthrough rate and overall campaign performance because they make ads more useful." Now, because that is true, Google feels it is an important factor to include in their ad rank algorithm.
Previously, Ad Rank was calculated using your max CPC bid and your Quality Score.With this update, Ad Rank will also take into account a third component: the expected impact from your ad extensions and formats.In addition, Google increased the importance of Ad Rank in determining whether your ad is eligible to be displayed with extensions and formats.Here are some more details on this from Google:
Ad extensions and formats can now influence the position of your ad on the search results page. If two competing ads have the same bid and quality, then the ad with the more positive expected impact from exte…

3 SEO Success Factors for 2014

I recently came upon one of my old articles, "SEO Factors for 2011". I chuckled to myself, not only about how some of the details were actually still relevant but also how many seemed so elementary compared to today's search environment. Yes, we still need to worry about the possession of "natural-looking" link profiles and how we feed our data to the engines. Those items will always be of consideration. However, the nostalgic review of my piece had me thinking about what factors we need to consider for successful SEO as online marketers in 2014. Social, Local & MobileWe've spent the last handful of years practicing and preaching the importance of being in social, mobile, and local. This mindset was proactive. It allowed us to not solely focus on keywords and search results, but how these elements were going to change the search results our users saw as well as our user's experience. While we walked down this road, at first it felt as if we were making …

Windows 8.1 gets global released by yesterday October 17 2013

Microsoft has released the Windows 8.1 update for its flagship operating system.
The update for Windows 8 restores some features to the operating system The download seeks to address some of the criticisms levelled at the original version of Windows 8. In particular, the update restores the start button and allows a computer to boot up with a traditional desktop interface. The launch comes at a critical time for Microsoft as it seeks a new boss, with PC sales experiencing a long decline. Windows 8 sought to bridge the gap between touchscreen devices, such as tablets and smartphones, and more traditional form laptops and desktop machines. As such it had an interface built of tiles that could be tapped or swiped to open applications. However, many people found the tiled interface did not work well for some of the things they were used to doing with a computer. The changes in 8.1 include: start button - tapping once on this brings up the tiled interface and a long press opens up system co…

The Apple iPhone 5c Is No Failure - Great feature, Good User friendly

Sometimes your expectations can really cloud your view of reality. According to a study from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners, 64 percent of all iPhone buyers in the last days of September chose the iPhone 5s. Only 27 percent went for the 5c, which many analysts (including myself) have said is too expensive to play the role of a "low-cost iPhone." That has led CNBC, for one, to go with thehysterically false headline "Nobody seems to want Apple's iPhone 5c." But the 5c is performing comparably with iPhones in its price bracket over the past two years. For the past few years, Apple has always had three iPhones in the market: a new, high-end product for $200 with contract, last year's model for $100, and then the two-year-old model for free. Apple iPhone 5c (Verizon Wireless) VIEW ALL PHOTOS IN GALLERY In the quarter when the iPhone 5 came out, Strategy Analytics estimated that about 39 percent of iPhones sold were the 4s model, which held the same place…
