Google Sidewiki Overview For Pharma Companies

  1. 1. Sidewiki Overview for Pharma<br />October 10, 2009<br />
  2. 2. Google Sidewiki<br />How it Works<br /><ul><li>Sidewiki allows users to post comments that are publicly viewable on any website they visit… Sort of.
  3. 3. Visitors must have Google Toolbar.
  4. 4. Visitors must opt-in for Sidewiki.
  5. 5. Sidewiki comments must reach significance threshold to become public.

  8. 8. Sidewiki and Pharma<br />
  9. 9. Contents are proprietary and confidential.<br />NOTE: Once Sidewiki comments are posted on a website, Google will determine whether they are “significant” enough to be displayed publicly. This determination may change over time resulting in previously public comments disappearing from Sidewiki. <br />In this way, Sidewiki operates very similar to Google web search.<br />If none of the Sidewiki comments on a website meet the significance threshold, Sidewiki will disappear completely from that website, even if users have posted comments. <br />

Google Sidewiki Abuse Policy<br />Contents are proprietary and confidential.<br />If you believe that someone is violating these policies, use the &quot;Report Abuse&quot; button within Sidewiki.  We’ll review your report and take action if appropriate.  Just because you disagree with certain material or find it to be inappropriate doesn&apos;t mean we&apos;ll remove it.  We understand that our users have many different points of view, and we take this into consideration when reviewing reports of abuse.  Although not all reports will result in removal, we do rely on our users to tell us about materials that may be violating our policies.<br />

  26. 26. Blocking Google Sidewiki<br />
  27. 27. Blocking Google Sidewiki<br />Available Methods for Blocking Sidewiki *<br />Edit your site’s htaccess file to block Google Toolbar<br /> This method will work with full effectiveness. However, it will prevent ANY visitor who also has Google Toolbar installed from viewing your website. These visitors will be told to uninstall Google Toolbar if they want to view your site.<br />Block Sidewiki via Javascript<br /> Several Javascript “hacks” have been written which will prevent Sidewiki from working on your website. However, these will need to be constantly updated with each updated release of Sidewiki.<br />Encrypt your website with SSL<br /> Sidewiki currently does not work with SSL encrypted websites. However, this is expected to be “fixed” with future updates.<br />Contents are proprietary and confidential.<br />* These methods are temporary tactics that will likely be made obsolete with future Sidewiki updates.<br />
