Search Engine Optimization

If you want to promote your business like never before, search engine optimization (SEO) can prove usefulness in endless ways. This process of stimulating positive effects on the visibility of a website or a web page in the unpaid results of search engines like Google, Yahoo!, and Bing helps website owners reap the benefits of improved website traffic, sales, and economies of scale, profits, and returns on investments.

Search engine optimization techniques may be used to target a wide range of search, including local search, video search, image search, news search, academic search, and industry-specific vertical search engines. This process includes optimizing a website by editing HTML, content, and coding to improve relevance to specific keywords and eliminate barriers to the indexing activities of search engines.

Google Shows Arrogance, Says Gmail Users Have No Privacy

August 25th, 2013 by James

In a response to a class action complaint filed in multi-district litigation, search engine giant Google has showed its arrogance by saying people can’t expect privacy when sending a message to a Gmail address.

Google’s brief said: “Just as a sender of a letter to a business colleague cannot be surprised that the recipient’s assistant opens the letter, people who use web-based email today cannot be surprised if their emails are processed by the recipient’s [email provider] in the course of delivery. Indeed, ‘a person has no legitimate expectation of privacy in information he voluntarily turns over to third parties.”

People who care about their email correspondents’ privacy should not use the Internet giant’s service, Consumer Watchdog said. “Google has finally admitted they don’t respect privacy,” said John M. Simpson, Consumer Watchdog’s Privacy Project director. “People should take them at their word; if you care about your email correspondents’ privacy don’t use Gmail.”

“Google’s brief uses a wrong-headed analogy; sending an email is like giving a letter to the Post Office,” said Simpson. “I expect the Post Office to deliver the letter based on the address written on the envelope. I don’t expect the mail carrier to open my letter and read it. Similarly when I send an email, I expect it to be delivered to the intended recipient with a Gmail account based on the email address; why would I expect its content will be intercepted by Google and read?”

Google pays $8.5 mn for privacy leaks

September 7th, 2010 by James

Google pays $8.5 mn for privacy leaksAccording to court documents, Google has agreed to make a payment of $8.5 million for settling a privacy lawsuit over a Buzz social networking tool that was added to free email service Gmail in February.

Google Buzz was taking Gmail contacts of a user and automatically adding them to their public Buzz social network.

From Timesofindia.indiatimes.com:

Legal paperwork made available online detailed the proposed settlement, which awaits approval by the federal court judge in San Francisco presiding over the case.

Lawyers that filed the class-action suit staked out 30 per cent of the settlement money and the seven named plaintiffs were to get no more than $2,500 each, according to court documents.

The rest of the money, which Google is to deposit in a fund, was earmarked for organizations devoted to Internet privacy policy or education. The settlement also called on the California-based Internet giant to do more to educate people about privacy at Buzz.

Facing a slew of privacy complaints in the wake of the Buzz launch, Google has made changes to the new social networking tool.

“Google has made changes to the Google Buzz user interface that clarify Google Buzz’s operation and users’ options regarding Google Buzz,” the settlement maintained.

From now on, users of Gmail will have to create a Google Buzz public profile for viewing, editing, or hiding lists of people in their social online circles.
