With the growing need to speed up every work, think tanks continually grind their grey matter to develop and bring out the most efficient of methods to minimize time needed to perform each task. Google has been pretty famous for doing this more regularly and to live up to that reputation it lately introduced On-Demand Indexing for Google Site Search. The tool makes sure that the latest news/pages appear in the search results in a faster way on your site.
YouTube has announced a monetization program for embedded videos. This comes as the Google brand is thinking to expand revenues, with an audience of 280 million per month, and 44 percent of those viewers watching videos on sites off of YouTube, sounds like a good marketing strategy. This works through the addition of Adsense at the bottom of the videos, taking 20 percent of the screen. Though the ad will appear for about 10 seconds, the time recommended for capturing maximum attention. One can also scroll through the ads, though that doesn’t really makes sense, but anyway.

I thought watching Herbert Elwood Gilliland III was the last of all those things to come up. With claims to the idea of YouTube been his and wanting around a one percent share of all the revenue it generates. With a video that almost had his face coming out of the screen, it was one of the weirdest things I have seen in my blogging career. But iJustine did a good job with a funny video, targeting the Elwood’s claim and guess what, TechCrunch reported of the guy hitting out another video that sadly has been pulled off or is no longer available. There he piled a lot more crap and talked of creating PayPal too.
Google Chrome comes to Linux, though as a test version for now. Yes now you can use Chrome on Linux but there’s a lot to cover up, as this version of the browser is pretty raw at the moment. The news circulated as a programmer, Dan Kegel, posted a note to the Chromium developers mailing list which said:
Veveo, a video solutions company, introduces WikiTap for the iPhone and Android smartphones, to help users work faster on Wikipedia. The app is free to use, and helps find the most relevant Wikipedia search results. On the other hand WikiTap is not just another way to access Wikipedia, but it is about an improved experience by uploading photos and videos to the article.
This makes the app the first of its kind, letting its users to read articles on the go, and contribute multimedia as well. Here’s what the CEO of Veveo, Murali Aravamudan had to say:
The KingPin is doing the pinning again, and this time the factor is SPEED. Search leader Google has launched a feature to allow more pages being included rapidly in the search called On-Demand Indexing available to customers of its Google Site Search.
Using this technology, Google will index customers’ publicly available Web sites and powers a search engine on those customers’ sites.
After being sailing safe at over $400 for quite a long time, Google has at last gone below $300 making Google appear less of Zeus that it had been. That is a drastic plunge Google’s stock have taken but given the current market situation where many firms have seen their stock drop close to single digits, it still holds a reasonable position. Shareholders might be alarmed but they still hold a very strong position compared to others who’ve lost a lot.
