Save Soccer

Official Google Blog: Spelling For Muggles

When I do not have much time to go through the dictionaries to find out the proper usage of words of phrases, I try this option as well. I run a query in Google with a sentence with the spellings or arrangements that I am not sure about. Obviously my intention is to see the Did you mean: part. It helps me a lot and saves my time as well.

However, if someday more and more people start using wrong spellings then the system would be in danger. If, one day, 90 among 100 type "soker" instead of "soccer" then those who typed "soccer" would be prompted a message Did you mean: soker. I am sure Google would find out some way and save soccer :grin:

How to become a successful content writer: Part II

Write for alternative media:

Never limit your domain of work to any specific topic or a particular website. To come out as a good content developer one should be able to write on vast range of topics. According to me, a content writer is he who can write on any topic based on thorough and extensive research. If you have a satisfactory level of I.Q. you can also become a good content writer.

I would strongly suggest maintaining personal blogs on single or multiple topics. Participating in collaborative projects like wiki is also important. It let you interact with knowledgeable person who enrich your understanding. It will be an additional help for you to write for Print Media to as well. Print Media helps you reach more people, especially in countries like India where Internet is not that much popular even.

Another reason behind suggesting to write for different media is to achieve a better understanding about readers’ psychology. Readers of news paper go through articles in a different way than the web surfers. Once you are acquainted with the reading style of your readers, half the battle is won. I would cover readers’ psychology in my coming posts. Stay tuned.

Solar Symphony

Being a passionate music lover, I was astonished to know that our Sun sings. However, the news is not an unexpected one. We all can feel whole universe to be tuned to certain compositions.

Recent reports sent by the satellites orbiting the Sun revealed that explosions inside the star create some magnetic waves which emit sound similar like the cord of a guitar. Unfortunately this music is beyond human sensibility range.

Content disables Google Bomb

Google Bomb is a technique to exploit Google’s search algorithm to make a site/blog appear in the top position for a particular keyword. To judge the relevance or theme of a webpage Google considers the keywords that are used to link to that particular page. Now, if I link to my WebWings with the keyword “Nandigram” from my other blogs and also ask my friends to do the same then whenever someone searches for “Nandigram” in Google, WebWings will come at the top. Obviously the number of such links should be higher.

If I do such things, what will happen? People will come to WebWings looking for “Nandigram” and they find nothing. Now, if I try to cover some “Nandigram” stories then it is no more Google Bomb; I have the right content for the topic.

So Google Bomb may not do lots of harm. However, it can push a good site down for a short while. Your rivals may make some low quality sites and place it at the top of SERP for the keyword you are fighting for. I am sure, these kinds of manipulations are temporary, Google algo will surely get the fake site off. So again, build up good content and be fearless.
