our consultancy and education programs.
It tells you exactly how to deal with those questions, with
tips that have never before been offered in print.

best practice and standards details. Instead, it introduces every-
thing you want to know to be successful with Google Business

Why Google AdWords Spells Success for
One of the best mediums for advertising on the Internet
nowadays is Google AdWords. ranked as the leader when it
comes to the different search engines as well as the advertise-
ments they placed, it certainly becomes the engine which gives
you a higher chance of having your ad clicked by the advertisers.
These advertisers usually pay you around one dollar every time
you get a click on the competitive keywords. But of course,
paying just more money will definitely not be a guarantee that
your advertisement gets to be displayed on top.
Using Google will mean having more preferences to the
ads that have been clicked the most compared to the ads with the
highest payments. One easy way to visualize this is through the
equation wherein twenty clicks on the first ad (at one dollar per
click) is greater than two clicks on a second ad (being that the
second ad has a rate of two dollars per click). Here, you can
surmise that the first ad is a lot more successful than the second
ad and thus you will have given Google more profit coming from
the one dollar ad that you have.
And so, this simply means that the importance of the
kinds of advertisements that are placed here are very effective
indeed and that people really are lured in clicking it. So make
sure that the Google AdWords that you have are very well writ-
ten, creatively constructed and highly attractive for it to be
clicked on. When it is like that, you are well on your way to
The Pros and Cons of Using Google Apps
The Google Apps collection is a web based software suite.
It consists of different office tools such as word processors and
spreadsheets, calendar and contact management, email, and web
These office tools are normally utilized on desktops. But
with Google Apps, you don’t have to install software on your
computer. Everything would be accessible through web inter-
Google Apps are good alternatives to the commonly used
desktop office suite. But before you take the switch, it is best to
know the pros and cons of using Google Apps.
For its good side, the Google Apps collection is several
hundred times cheaper than popular office suites. Priced at $50
annually per user, it can provide you with cheap office solutions.
Plus, you get the advantage of 24/7 support services which could
also lower your IT maintenance cost.
Another best feature of Google Apps suite is it centralized
storage set-up. This means you can do your work anywhere as
long as there is Internet connection. This opens up opportunities
for telecommuting and establishing remote work places.
For its downside, using Google Apps could be very uncom-
fortable if you’re too concerned about privacy. Because your data
will be stored on third party servers, you might feel uncomfort-
able about its security. Google however has the most secure and
reliable data centers.
Another big disadvantage is if you can’t access the Inter-
net, then you will not be able to work. Google Apps are purely
web based. The software resides in cyberspace. So if you’re
outside of your office and have no means to establish Internet
connection, then your work could be disrupted.
Better Web Business with Google Business
Different kinds of businesses can definitely benefit from
Google business solutions. For those who are in the small website
business avenue, they can truly benefit from AdWords. This is a
good way for them to advertise their business on Google as well
as their wide network of partner sites. You can also set any type
of budget that you want and then only pay every time people get
to click on the ads.
Another Google business solution is that which is called
Analytics. Here, you will be able to learn where all your visitors
originate from and how exactly they get to interact with your
website, as well as how you as a business owner can be able to
improve their web experience. AdSense, on the other hand, is the
popular Google business solution that helps you earn a lot of
revenues coming from the relevant ads which you have on your
Of course, following closely is the reliable Google business
solution called Webmaster Central. With this, you can find out
how Google gets to crawl and as well as index the different kinds
of websites. Also, you can make your email a lot more efficient
using custom Gmail accounts with Google Apps. Here, you are
provided with twenty five gigabytes of storage, as well as a very
powerful search engine which can help you find information in
an instant. For the small and medium sized website business
owner, Google business solutions clearly offers a lot of great tools
that expand the network, boost productivity and thereby creating
bigger sales and revenues.
Google Docs Makes Word Processing More
Google Docs is a web based word processing application.
It is a major part of Google’s collection of office tools. Google
Docs however can be used to quickly share documents. You will
be able to collaborate with peers in creating or revising a docu-
ment without using email attachments.
To start using Google Docs, you need to have a Google ac-
count. You will use this account to access your work space.
There are two ways to start working on Google Docs.
First, if you have a readymade document created in Word, you
can simply upload this file to your Google Docs work area. Once
uploaded, you can share it with your colleagues and start group
Another way is to directly create a document on Google
Docs. Use it just like any other word processing application.
Your work will be saved not on your local computer but on
Google’s data centers. You can also share this with peers and
collaborate with them in making the necessary revisions.
If you frequently use Google Docs, you can create and con-
figure short cut keys to launch the service. This is very useful in
order to save time whenever you want to access your work area.
You can also create a shortcut key to create a new document to
speed up the process of document creation.
It is also easier to find a document on Google Docs. Just
use its search function to quickly find what you need. Through
the search function of Google Talk, you can skip browsing
through different folders and files. This function streamlines
your work which could improve productivity.
Importance of Google Geospatial Solutions
to Improve Productivity
The Google Geospatial Solutions provide several geo-
graphic data and mapping services to be included on your web-
sites. Mapping and geographic data are important so that your
customers can visualize your business. The geospatial solutions
of Google also help your website visitors to locate your business.
You can use geospatial services to improve website and
business process performance. Here are some of the most impor-
tant functions of Google Geospatial Solutions.
First, Google’s geospatial solutions can be fully integrated
into your public and commercial websites. Visitors of your
websites can simply access the interactive maps so they can
easily find your offices.
This is very important for e-commerce sites that maintain
physical stores. Through geospatial solutions, customers will
find it easier to transact with your company because they will be
able to quickly locate your place of business.
Second, the Google geospatial services also allow you to
organize geographic data and categorize them for easy identifica-
tion. So, if you’re doing a presentation on property locations for
your clients, then the Google geospatial service can provide tools
to visualize the property data you’re discussing.
It can also be used to accurately present a property layout.
If you’re trying to clinch a deal with property developers, provid-
ing them with accurate sketches of the proposed location would
be very convincing.
Geospatial solutions also allow you to manage remote and
field workers. By annotating the locations of your employees,
you can easily deploy them to answer a service call from custom-
Using the Geospatial Solutions of Google can improve not
just the performance of websites. The geo solutions can also
improve business processes in order to increase productivity.
Enhance Electronic Security through
Google Postini Services
Google offers enterprise class web security services which
are being powered by Postini security solutions. Google acquired
Postini in 2007 so it can get a share of the enterprise web secu-
rity market. The Google Postini service can be deployed on
company sites, communications and data servers.
The Google Postini services include web security, email
security and encryption, anti spam and filtering technologies,
and enterprise email archiving. These services can bulletproof
your web and communication servers from malicious Internet
attacks. The email archiving functions will also enable your
company to follow official regulations.
Getting Google’s security services is affordable. You can
get complete email and web security for $45 for every single user
per year. All you have to do is sign up for the service and the
security features will be implemented. Google also provides
ready support for the security products.
The Google Postini security services also support content
filtering for incoming mail messages. The service will be able to
stop spam and virus messages. It can also provide content
security for all your outgoing communications by encrypting the
messages. Hijacking your messages therefore would be impossi-
ble so you can confidently transfer data over the Internet.
Google can also host archived messages on their data cen-
ters for 10 years. You can easily retrieve archived communica-
tions whenever you want. This service is important so your
company can comply with regulations about electronic data
archiving and retrieval.
Getting the Google Postini services will enhance the secu-
rity features of your web and mail servers. These services could
protect your company from numerous web security risks.
Tips to Using Google Talk to Improve IM
Google Talk is the instant messaging client of Google. It is
a lightweight application so it would not exert too much pressure
on your local computer. However, like all Google applications,
Google Talk can be accessed and used using your web browser.
There are three ways how you can use Google Talk. First,
you can instantly use Talk service via your Gmail account. When
you access Gmail, a GTalk chat tool will be available for you.
Just use this to start chatting with your friends.
Second, you can simply use a web based Gmail client. You
can get client apps from Google or from third party developers.
You don’t have to download the Google Talk application. You
can chat and call your friends through your browser.
Lastly, you can also download a standalone Google Talk
client and install it on your computer. Use it just like any IM
client to chat or make an Internet call.
The drawback of Google Talk is you cannot connect with
friends using IM services of different networks. However, you
can easily hack Google Talk to connect it with other IM services
such as Yahoo, ICQ, or MSN.
To make the hack, simply connect your Google Talk to any
Jabber server. Jabber is an open source IM service that provides
client and server applications. There are lots of Jabber server
applications which you can use for your local network or via the
Once you connect Gtalk to Jabber you can now select an-
other IM service from Jabber to transport Talk to another ser-
vice. You can now use Google Talk to communicate with friends
on other networks.
Google’s Open Social Provides New Oppor-
tunities for Social Networking
Google’s Open Social can be used to build widgets that can
communicate with multiple social networks. It follows the open
source standards so the codes of the widgets will work on any
Through Google’s Open Social, you can create a small ap-
plication that contains content on your website. You can share
this application on any social networking site that uses Open
Social codes. Your friends and networks on the social site can
access this mini application to go to your website or to get up-
dates from you. They can also share this application with their
Google’s Open Social makes it possible for you to create a
reliable marketing tool for your product. The mini application
can serve like a widget commonly used on networking sites or
blogs. If your widget is being shared by lots of web users, then
more people can easily access your website.
The Google help center provides a detailed technical man-
ual on how to use Open Social on your site. You can find step by
step tutorials on how to develop an Open Social code to create a
The Open Social mini application can be hosted on your
servers if you like. This is optional because the mini application
you can create will still work even if not hosted. It can simply be
deployed as a simple widget consisting of HTML codes. This will
spare your servers from heavy bandwidth demands if your Open
Social mini application becomes very popular among many
Two Gmail Tricks to Improve Your Email
Gmail is Google’s free email service. It can provide you
with more than 7 GB of space and this grows every day. You can
also use Gmail as a forwarding mail service or create a POP3
account so you can use a third party desktop email application.
Gmail has everything you need for an email service. But
there are tricks which you can do to maximize Gmail and make it
easier to use.
First, if you have slow computer or slow Internet connec-
tion, you can switch Gmail from standard view to basic HTML
view. At the bottom of your Gmail interface, you can see two
links there that say: standard and basic HTML. Just click the
basic HTML and Gmail will be converted to a simple web page
that loads faster.
Some utilities will not be visible however if you switch to
HTML view. If you want to use functions such as chat, contact
list, and interactive label list, you can simply revert to standard
Second, if you’re primarily using a desktop email client
such as Outlook to access Gmail, then it would be best to auto-
matically archive downloaded messages. This will clean-up your
Gmail inbox and you can avoid manually archiving hundreds of
messages that you’ve already read.
To do this, go to the settings page of Gmail then click the
Forwarding/POP/IMAP tab. In the POP download category, you
will find a question there asking: “when messages are accessed
with POP”. Choose the option archive Gmail’s copy from the
dropdown menu. Save your settings and you’re done.
Improving Website Performance through
If you want an all in one package to monitor your website
performance, Google Analytics could be your best tool. Google
Analytics is a free service but you can get comprehensive website
analysis from it. It can also support multiple websites analysis.
You need to create a Google account to access the Ana-
lytics services. Once you log-in to Google Analytics, get the Meta
code for your website. Paste this code on any page that you want
to be analyzed by Google.
If you have multiple websites, you must use different
codes for them. There is a drop down menu on Google Analytics
page where you can list or add websites.
Once the Meta code is active on your site, Google will be
able to crawl your site and generate performance report for you.
You can see this report on the main page of your Google Ana-
Different graphs and data will be presented to you. You
can easily see which of your pages are performing well. You can
also see which web page on your site converts visitors into actual
To study the report, you can download a complete copy of
it in excel file. By studying the Google Analytics report, you and
your webmasters can make adjustments to your websites to
Google Analytics is a powerful and comprehensive web
analysis tool. If you’re maintaining a commercial website, you
should use this service to get actual on-site activities and per-
formance. Google Analytics will enable you to devise strategies
to improve your websites.
Google Base: Supporting Your Items on the
A place where you can efficiently submit all your different
kinds of online and offline content is called Google base. Here,
the different items that you submit may also include the different
labels and attributes that help in describing what it is that you
want to upload so that other people will not have a hard time
looking for your content.
In Google Base, the attributes are also described as words
or phrases that really help in describing the different qualities as
well as characteristics that may be said of your items. Each given
attribute allows you to enter multiple values which you then
separate with commas. The labels, on the other hand, are also
keywords or phrases which may act as tag words that classify or
describe each item that you have.
The items that you end up submitting to Google Base are
also now part of the Base directory. Depending on the kind of
relevance your item has, it can also be automatically posted in
higher places of Google search engines like Froogle and Google
Maps, among others. This is highly important for you to under-
stand as a business owner because you need to make sure of the
quality of your data.
When data is good, you can affect your results in Google
Base in a highly positive way – including the other areas of
Google, too. The Google Base has a data feel which allows you to
be more particular about the own attributes. These means you
can add more information about the different items that you
Top Tweaks to Improve Your Google Cal-
Google Calendar is fast becoming the favorite online or-
ganizer of many Internet users. If you already have a Google
account, creating a Calendar could be your best option in orga-
nizing your activities.
Here are some of the most important functions and
tweaks that you can do with Google Calendar.
First, you can change the standard default view of Google
Calendar to one that suits your needs. If you want your Calendar
to display weekly events and schedules, simply go to the settings
page of Google Calendar and configure it the way you like. This
is very useful if you don’t want to be stuck with the 30 day calen-
dar view of Google.
Second, you can integrate weather reports on your Calen-
dar. You can set the weather report through the settings page.
Just specify your specific location and set the weather report to
be added to your Calendar. You can now determine if you will
have to bring a coat, an umbrella, or other rainy gears to your
Another important utility you can use is the share func-
tion. You can easily share your Goggle Calendar to colleagues by
clicking the share button. Your friends will receive a link to your
Google Calendar so they can have access to it.
If you don’t want to forget a scheduled event, simply set
up an alert that will be sent to your email, mobile phone, or POP
mail. Every time an event is forthcoming, the Google Calendar
will send a reminder so you will not forget your schedules.
The Benefits of Using Google Enterprise
Have you experienced searching for documents on your
company’s Intranet and failing to find what you need? The
Google Enterprise Search Solutions could be the answer to your
The Google Enterprise Search service is a comprehensive
solution to increase the business intelligence of enterprises. The
service utilizes software and hardware deployments to improve
corporate search performance.
For example, if you buy a Google Enterprise Search appli-
ance, your company will be able to use Google’s search technol-
ogy for faster and more intelligent search results. You will also
get a hardware that can mine up to 30 million documents from
your local servers and on public Internet servers.
There are two main types of enterprise level Google search
solutions. For medium sized businesses, there is the Google mini
search appliance. It can be used to mine up to 300,000 data and
files from local servers and Internet. It can also search for
hundreds of different file types such as PDF, HTML, Lotus,
Office files, and many others.
For big organizations with large databases, there is the
Google Search Appliance. This will enable your company to find
data and files from almost unlimited sources. The maximum
document count that can be mined using Search Appliance is 30
million. It also supports cross-database search so you will be
able to get data and documents from different databases using
any type of database software.
By using Google Enterprise Search Solutions, your com-
pany will be able to reduce the time searching for important
documents needed by your business. Your organization there-
fore can improve productivity which will have a direct impact on
Be Found Quickly With Google Maps Busi-
Do you have a website which operates to promote a shop,
or maybe a business place to sell your goods? If such is the case,
then it would be very helpful for your customers to locate it using
a location map. They will be twice as likely to visit your store if
they can see right away where your location is and get the exact
directions to it.
The good news is that this can be done quite easily thanks
to the wonder that is Google Maps with business listings. This is
a very easy and free way for you to put your business on the map
– so to speak! Once you go to the Google Maps list, you can
simply follow a few procedures in getting your store in a business
First, you have to click on the Add/Edit function for busi-
ness owners. Then, you will be directed to the Local Business
Center, where you should log in using your Google Account. As
soon as you are logged in, go to the Add New Business tab that is
found under the Locations tab. Carefully enter the name of your
business as well as its address. You need to add the full postal
address because Google will need it for your activation PIN.
Creating separate listings for each of your businesses (as-
suming that you have more than one, of course) is also a good
idea. Simply follow the rest of the easier directions and you are
well on your way to a better location of business with more
clients knowing where you can be found.
Google Site Search Can Improve the Per-
formance of Websites
Site Search is the new search solution of Google for busi-
ness organizations. The Google Site Search service replaced the
Custom Search Business Edition services.
Site Search is hosted and powered by Google and uses the
algorithms of its public search engine. Google Site Search how-
ever is not ad supported, it has fully customizable search func-
tions, and does not require Google branding.
You will be able to create an on-site search engine with
your company logo on it. You can also configure the search
engine to show biased result. This means more control of search
results so you can direct your visitors to pages you want them to
For example, you will be able to configure Google Site
Search to show more recent pages or documents on the top
results. You can also include other external websites outside of
Google to show on your search engine.
Having a Goggle Site Search widget on your website could
improve site performance. Site visitors would be able to easily
find individual pages, product pages, and services of your web-
In fact, webmasters and website owners have reported a
decrease on their bounce rate after they installed Google Site
Search on their websites. This means visitors will stay longer at
your site which is also an indication of improving user engage-
As a result of using Google Site Search, online businesses
also reported an increase on their conversion rates especially for
their e-commerce pages. This means more cash flow and more
income opportunities for commercial websites.
A First Look at Google Webmaster Central
If there is anything that a budding web enthusiast or en-
trepreneur needs, it is Google Webmaster Central. This is simply
an impressive suite which features a wide host of webmaster
tools that can provide you with an easy and free way of making
your website very much Google-friendly. With Google Webmas-
ter Central, you now have a way to show the Google view of your
This is very helpful when it comes to diagnosing problems
as well as letting you share the different information with other
people as an attempt to improve the visibility of the site. The
latter is actually quite important, because it is the key in coming
up with a secure and high quality spot on the Web. The first thing
that you need to know when it comes to improving the visibility
of your site on Google is all about robots and indexes.
Learning how the Google robots crawl and get to index
your site is vital to success. On Google Webmaster Central, the
Crawl info mean letting others have access to your website and
check if the Googlebot visited it and what exact time. You may
also use it to view the different URLs that others may have had
problems in crawling and why it is so.
As such, it becomes easily fixable and lets you index away
without any more worries or constraints. The Robots.txt file is a
way to validate the troubles that exist on the file and lets you test
out the different changes that may occur from the server itself.
Improve Your Web Revenue with Google
If you have not noticed the many Google AdSense ads on
so many websites, you are not as keen an observer as most. You
should truly invest in Google AdSense because it makes your site
very popular. You find the most profitable kind of AdSense
keyword, all you need to do is to build your own AdSense site
that revolves around those keywords. Add to that a setup of an ad
campaign on the smaller types of pay per click systems and you
will surely be reaping in the big bucks.
A closer inspection of one tip for AdSense success is of
course quite necessary for you to be able to see how easy it is to
execute. When you make the AdSense banner present, it is
simply like convincing your readers to click on your links that are
within the block of Google AdSense - which is the direction to
take if you want to generate income out of it. When a visitor is
about to leave, he can either go to another site within the site or
click on an ad by Google AdSense that is said to be high laying.
What you can do here is to simply go ahead and apply the
Google AdSense Program where you get to post up the smaller
ads on some of the article pages. Of course, you would like to
know the best formats for such and if there are some missing
information in the account settings of your AdSense then you
may want to attend to those right away.
Blog Stat Maintenance with Google Ana-
Would you like to know exactly how many people view
your blog on a daily basis? Are you curious to find out where
these people are from so you may improve your efforts at mar-
keting to reach out to them in a better manner? If so, then
Google Analytics is for you. This is an ingenious way that has
been developed in order to let you in on the basic stats: how
people found out about your blog, where these people originate
and exactly how long they stayed and viewed your pages.
If you really are serious in your efforts to build a highly
profitable blog, then you will find Google Analytics to be very
much useful in tracking your visitors. Of course, the first thing
you need to do is to have an account with two places: Blog-
ger.com and Google Analytics. After you have created accounts
for both, then you need to log on to Analytics and then go to the
Add Website Profile settings.
As soon as you enter the URL or the website address of
your own blog, then you can click Finish. You will then be given
an HTML code which you will need to append to your blog page

Get Ahead in Research with Google Book
When you search for a particular thing, you may want to
try the Internet because it might be there. However, the chal-
lenge lies in getting the exact details that you want at the mo-
ment – which may be a bit difficult because of the sheer amount
of information in the Internet. Google is a very well known and
quite effective way of looking for the major links of any person or
any phrase. When it comes to books, you can also use Google for
Of course, there are always book stores such as Amazon
and Barnes and Noble, but Google Book Search offers so much
more than just the title and the price of the book and where you
can buy it. Using Google Book Search has proven to be a very
handy way for many academicians and students alike. This is
because this function allows them to actually browse the book
itself instead of purchasing it.
Google Book Search is like having a copy of the actual
book itself – right on your screen! You may scroll up and down to
read the actual pages from the scanned book and even find the
proper citations should you need it for referencing. Google Book
Search, of course, is not a free online library of any kind of
academic or reference research. Some books are incomplete and
have a few pages missing.
This is also to encourage people to actually go out and buy
the book itself. But for those who find the information they need
from the pages that are allowed to be viewed on Google Book
Search, you are probably counting your blessings that such a tool
is available to you on the Internet.
Google Checkout: For a Better Web Shop-
If you have been yearning to sell some of your digital
products all the while using the payment processor called Google
Checkout, you have probably witnessed a few tricky drawbacks.
Some of this includes the absence of a mechanism which works
to integrate the shopping carts in an automatic manner. This
usually means that each digital product that has been purchased
will need manual approval to be loaded.
However, the good news is that some solutions have been
provided in order for you to come up with an easier time in
downloading and delivering goods to your customers and clients.
This merchant service is very efficient and scalable. It is a robust
payment processor which makes purchasing very easy for your
customers and record keeping a breeze for you, the store keeper.
One thing that customers have been clamoring for would
be the no chargeback policy of Google Checkout – but the good
thing about this is that a solution is well on its way. An instant
online method of paying is a good way for Google Checkout to
encourage business growth. This is certainly better than simply
coming up with a payment scheme in an antiquated manner.
Here, you can select different merchant service providers
that also take in different kinds of currencies. The top three most
popular currencies are the Euro, US Dollar and the British Pound
– thankfully, Google Checkout caters to these three and so much
more for your easy shopping convenience wherever you may be
in the world.

Better Search Results Thanks To Google
If you happen to come across a page on the web that has
the label SEO or Search Engine Optimization) Made Easy, then
you might do a double take. Such a website is making its own
claim that it is part of the top results pages of the successful
search engine company called Google. This is what they call the
Google Website Optimizer.
With the help of certain types of algorithms that help put
into place new site pages, you will have an opportunity to be
ranked higher than most. Google Website Optimizer is a great
way for you to have a support plan that can grow and has a fee,
but also lets you put your products through a free test module to
see how it can fare. This assesses if your own website can be
made much more profitable.
A tool such as Google Website Optimizer helps you in
connecting with most of the search engines as well as your
customers. It does so by letting you see the different combina-
tions of data that seems to be most appealing to all your consum-
ers. A lot of people have placed their trust in Google website

Add Website to Increase Website Visibility
Adding the website is quite a useful step in making a web-
site more popular. Search engine and directories accept website
submissions for free. So this makes adding the website easy for
any webmaster or website owner.
Why should websites be added to search engines and di-
rectories? Again, this is an effective way of promoting a website.
By adding the website, its chances of being more visible on
search results are increased. People are able to see the link to the
site more often. More people will see and know the site exists—
and more people are likely to visit the site.
Adding the website on search engines and directories does
not automatically get it shown on result pages though. Search
engines will do its work in qualifying the sites relevant enough
for each category. Google, for example, does not promise that
that all added sites will be displayed nor does it make commit-
ments as to when a newly added site will get exposure. It is
therefore also important for the site content to be relevant and
By adding the website, it is given a jumpstart for search
engine optimization. The website will surely be included in the
search for websites to be indexed. While it does not guarantee
result inclusion, its chances are significantly improved. So while
it is not all when it comes to search engine optimization it is a
vital component. Adding the website to search engine and to
directory listings is the first step towards a good and solid search
engine optimization strategy.
Google Analytics: A Free Google Stats Tool
Google stats are presented as Google Analytics. This is yet
another free Google tool available for all webmasters and website
owners. As what the name suggests, it is all about the statistics
on website traffic.
Google Analytics allows webmasters to see a detailed pic-
ture of how keywords and ad campaigns are performing. This is
important in making sure that the website is well placed.
Through the stats provided by Google Analytics, webmasters can
better make the websites visible and profitable. Less money
would also be wasted on ads that are ineffective. Alternatively,
these ads could be fine-tuned to make them effective in bringing
in traffic too.
Google Analytics even provides webmasters and website
owners stats about the visitors who go to the site and immedi-
ately leave. So if the site’s landing pages are inefficient they
would know and they would be able to make adjustments. This
way, visitors will be enticed to stay and browse around the site
more. More site visitors will even be enticed to buy the products
or the services offered there.
With all the details and all the information provided by
Google Analytics, webmasters can be better at their jobs. The
reports that the tool provides is detailed enough to enable web-
masters to look into every small thing that affects site traffic.
They are assisted by Google Analytics in bringing in ample traffic
to websites. They are also aided by this tool to make sure that
landing pages are entertaining and informative enough to make
visitors stay on the site longer.
Google AdWords: The Google Pay Per Click
Driving more traffic to the site is one very primary aim of
all website owners. They have to get the most traffic in order to
be profitable. But websites need the help of search engines to
show the public that their site exists and to show them what it
has to offer.
One of the easiest and quickest ways to drive traffic to the
site is by availing a service called pay per click or also known as
AdWords for Google. By subscribing to this Google business
service, the ads for the website will appear in relevant searches.
Links to the site will also be shown in sites related to the theme
of the website.
The advantage of getting this service is that ads are dis-
played to targeted audience. People will see the links when they
are searching for the site category. People will also see them in
sites which are about or at least related to the same things the
site is offering. So the interest is definitely there. This is indeed a
good investment in terms of site marketing.
As an advertiser, the website owner only pays for the
times when the visitors clicks on the links and visit the site.
There is no wasted money here. What is billed is the exact num-
ber of new visitors the service drives to the site only. While it
provides more links and exposure for the site, what is actually
paid is the number of clicks visitors make on the ads.
Search Engine Marketing: Essential for
Success in E-Commerce
Search engine marketing encompasses all efforts geared
towards increasing website visibility. This includes search engine
optimization and paid advertising among others. What the
website basically aims is to have their websites included in the
results of the searches made by the public. What is even also
important is the position it takes on the result page. The higher
the website is displayed on the result page, the more beneficial it
is for the website.
By investing a certain amount for search engine market-
ing, the website gains more exposure on the Internet. The web-
site in effect pays the search engine to display links of the website
such as what happens in pay per click programs like Google
AdWords. When the particular relevant keyword is searched, the
website is displayed on top of the search results along with the
other advertised websites. This means that people would be
checking out the website before they click on the others on the
bottom. Again, more traffic will be driven to the website. This
gives the site an opportunity to gain more customers.
This, of course, does not warrant automatic sales for the
website. It would take an effective landing page and a good
product to convert traffic to sales. Still, search engine marketing
is that important. It is there to establish the presence of the site
and its offerings to the public. Without search engine marketing,
a website will have a very hard time to make sales and to make
profit. A serious website owner must therefore allot a budget for
search engine marketing if he wants to succeed.
A Free Webmaster Tool Can Be As Benefi-
cial As Paid Webmaster Tools
In doing search engine optimization, it is important that
the website owner or the webmaster knows how the system
works. For example, if the site’s search engine optimization
efforts are targeted for Google, he should know how to best
market the site to Google. In other words, one should know the
criteria that Google follows in indexing the sites to include in
This is very important so that one can optimize the web-
site effectively. He can customize the website so it will satisfy
each criterion. Fortunately, Google webmaster tools are available
for free for such purpose. This suite of webmaster tools gives
information about the website. Any problem relating to the
indexing of the website is indicated. Also indicated is the number
of pages the index contains. There is also a list of all pages that
links to the website.
With these data available to the webmaster, he can ana-
lyze which ads and banners are effective in bringing traffic. Any
problem can be corrected to increase site traffic too.
Another webmaster tool that Google offers is the keyword
suggestion tool. This will help the webmaster to use the keywords
that will bring more exposure and more traffic to the site. By
using the more popular keywords, the site will appear more in
Again, these tools are provided by Google for free. So,
webmasters can take advantage of them and be more efficient in
bringing in more traffic with lower costs. They will be able to
build more Google-friendly websites. And they will be able build
more successful and profitable sites as well.
Google Maps Made Possible by the Google
Google is so rich in providing business services and tools
to all Internet users and businessmen. A businessman, for exam-
ple, can simply list his business to Google Maps. And then what
will happen is people in the locality searching for the products
and services that the business offers will be shown the way to the
store or establishment. A map will be provided and the store
address will be displayed as well.
Google Maps is, of course, powered by the Google satellite
which enables it to provide the maps to various store and estab-
lishment addresses. What’s good about this service is that any
size of business can benefit from it. Even individual professionals
and practitioners can advertise their practices through Google
This is another way of making a business visible on the In-
ternet. Even businesses and professionals who do not have
websites can avail of such service. They are not only able to
display their addresses but their office and store hours as well.
Businesses can even include printable discount coupons and
promos. And even if an individual has a couple of businesses to
advertise, he can easily do so using just one account.
Google Maps benefit businesses by bringing them closer
and bringing them to the attention of potential customers in
their localities who are making the searches. Since it’s a free
service to display the business details, anyone can use this tool in
Internet advertising. And since the Internet is widely used in
making searches for just about anything, this service is quite
helpful for every business and professional availing it.
Efficient Internet Advertising: Bring More
Visitors and Sales to Your Site
Internet advertising is a very important part of marketing
a website. When a website is there to sell something, traffic is
very important. No one would buy the products and the services
it sells if there is no one visiting the site. It is therefore important
to drive as much traffic to the site.
Through Internet advertising, the existence of the website
is announced. The website and links to it also become visible to
its potential customers. The more the links are displayed, the
more traffic will the website have. Paid Internet advertising will
ensure the site more exposure on relevant sites.
It is also important that the links are shown higher on
every search results. Subscribing to Google AdWords, for exam-
ple, gives the website visibility through ads displayed on top of
every search result page. The exposure that such Internet adver-
tising tool provides is very powerful since people who get to see
them already have an interest on the category.
Internet advertising through classifieds is also one effec-
tive way to do it. Search engines like Google have this service.
And it’s effective since people who view and make searches
through the classifieds are more or less looking to buy some-
Of course, it is not only the Internet advertising tools that
are important. The way that ads are sent out is also important.
The words should be descriptive and informative enough to
attract visitors to the site. Where permitted, images also help
make potential customers visit the site. The site itself should be
informative, entertaining and enticing as well. With all the
ingredients put together, Internet advertising will actually be-
come effective in helping the site bring in more sales.
Pay Per Click Advertising: The Most Tar-
geted and Economical Way to Advertise
Pay per click advertising is one of the most common forms
of online advertising. Ads are displayed on top of search result
pages. And ads are shown on websites related to what the site is
offering. By displaying the ads this way, the website is given an
exposure to the people who are likely to be interested on its
products and services.
This form of advertising is targeted to people who are al-
ready interested on the products and service the site is offering.
So, the visibility given to the site is not wasted. What’s even good
about it is that website owners only pay for the number of clicks
made on the ads. So, pay per click advertising is actually eco-
Pay per click advertising has been effective in bringing in
more traffic to websites. So, using this form of online advertising
is really worth it for most website owners. In order to capitalize
on this technique, one must use the best site to advertise with.
Many prefer to do it with Google through Google AdWords. Since
people use Google much to make searches more people are likely
to come across the ad and visit the site.
More visitors mean more chances of making a sale. That is
why the success of a pay per click advertising campaign can at
times make or break the business. After all, every website needs
as much visitors. Without visitors, no one will buy the products
and services on the site. On the other hand, if good traffic is
supplemented with good landing pages and good products,
traffic will be converted to sales. The website will be making
more sales and it will be profitable.
Bring in More Business through Google
Search Engine Optimization
What is search engine optimization? It’s basically about
making one’s website more accessible to the public. This means
aiming for the site to be at the top of search engine search re-
sults. But why would people want to do search engine optimiza-
Most online businesses value the benefits that search en-
gine optimization bring. When their sites are shown at the top,
people are most likely to visit their sites. With more people able
to browse their sites they would have better chances of getting
Most businesses target their search engine optimization
on popular search engines such as Google. This is, of course, only
logical since most people use Google for making their searches.
Again, more people are likely going to see their sites.
So how does a site rank well with Google? Google ranks
pages. This means that the most relevant page is shown on top of
search results. It’s possible that one page of the site is the most
relevant to the search. It will therefore be shown on top even if
the home page is less relevant.
Keyword density is important to Google. It looks at how
many times the search keywords are repeated in a specific page.
In search engine optimization, it is therefore important that the
keywords being optimized are used repeatedly in that particular
Links to the website is also very important. The website
should have as many back links. Quality should not be sacrificed
though. Relevance, link quality and anchor text are also being
considered by Google.
Using Google services could also help in search engine op-
timization. By availing AdWords for example, the site will get
exposure in many other relevant sites. The site will also be shown
in search results.
Website Submission: An Important Part of
Search engine Optimization
Website submission is done in order to drive more traffic
to the site. By this token it is actually a part of search engine
optimization. It’s easy to submit a website to search engines and
to directories. And it’s usually free to submit websites to the
search engines. But what’s difficult is passing their criteria for
the site to be included in search results pages. It also takes time
before a website will be included in search results.
However, website submission is very beneficial to the site
when successful. It provides a way for customers to find the
website when they use the search engine to do searches. It is also
a way of creating intrinsic back links for website search engine
While some argue that the importance of website submis-
sion has diminished it is an important part of search engine
optimization. By submitting the URL of the website, the website
is somehow introduced to the search engine. This also assures
the website owner that the website is categorized in the right
category. But again, this does not warrant automatic inclusion to
search results. Much more time and effort must then be focused
in other search engine optimization tools as well.
So website submission has its purpose in search engine
optimization. If the right search engine marketing mix is planned
and implemented, the website will surely drive more traffic. If
this is coupled with a good landing page, site traffic will be
converted to sales. The website will be successful and it will be
Advertiser Education: Negative Keywords
Increase Your ROI
In coming up with a successful list of keywords, you have
to determine negative keywords as well. What does it mean when
you include negative keywords in your campaigns? This means
negative keywords will not be included in the search results. This
is good because it filters the unwanted results from any queries
made. It also lessens your cost per click. This event will in turn
increase your return on investment.
For instance, if your chosen negative keyword is ‘free
download’, then your ads will not be shown on the search queries
that users will make. However, if the keyword is interchanged,
your ad can possibly be included in the search results. More so, if
one keyword will be searched, your ads will still show.
Negative Keywords Manipulation
To make your negative keywords effective, you have to
learn how to manipulate them. The process of including negative
keywords only involves adding of negative sign prior the negative
keyword. There are tools like Keyword Tool and Search Query
Performance that you can take advantage of so you can come
with your list of possible negative keywords.
The list of negative keywords will not just benefit your
campaign ads but will lead you to lower costs of advertising and
assurance that your website will be targeted. However, don’t
over manipulate or misuse your negative keywords because it
may result to a very limited number of audiences.
On the contrary, if you don’t use negative keywords, you
might end up getting audiences who are not interested in the
product you are offering. Uninterested audience can lower your
quality score when it comes to keyword measurement. That’s
why before you add any negative keyword in your account you
have to make sure that they are significant at all.
Advertiser Education: What is Return on
Google, based on statistics conducted in US alone, is the
most widely used search engine. This is why the search market-
ing and advertising industry highly trusts Google in increasing
their return on investments and in gathering potential customers
for their business. Unlike any other forms of media used in
marketing, online marketing done in Google drives profit and
enhanced return on investments.
Part of advertiser education is to get full knowledge of
what return on investment is and what can it do in making your
business profitable. For starters, return on investment means the
ratio of the advertising costs relative to revenue that is generated
after conversion of sales and leads are done.
Your return on investment identifies the value of your
earnings derived from the costs of your ads and campaigns.
There are conversion formulas and calculations in identifying
your ROI. But the simplest conversation calculation could be
through getting the revenue of your sales. Then, the revenue of
your sales will deduct the costs of your advertising. After that,
you divide the answer from your overall ad costs.
Since ROI is highly significant in any online marketing,
you have to learn how to improve it. Google AdWords is proven
to be efficient in drawing large number of potential customers.
Thus, you have to execute the following:
-make every ad and campaign you create visible to the
landing page of your website to get more clicks from your tar-
-make sure that your website is navigable and is user-
friendly to let your visitors stick around your site
-keyword selection and keyword placement should be re-
levant so that your keywords will be easily found on search
-be sure that you regularly monitor your ROI once you ac-
quire an increased of ROI with the use of Google conversion
tracking and your account statistics
Once everything is done and put on their right places,
then you wouldn’t be surprised that you were able to increase
your ROI and bring a great number of customers to your busi-

ting the necessary keyword. This way, you let your audience learn

sorted to Google AdWords capabilities, you will only learn that at
one point of their lives all they needed to do was to put their trust
in what Google AdWords can do.

Introduction to Google's Content Network
Google technology is powered by thousands of high qual-
ity websites under what is called Google Content Network.
Google Content Network can be associated with an octopus and
the websites that comprise the whole network can be associated
with the octopus’ tentacles. Whatever website will Google acquire
it still belongs to the same body or network, and it still functions
based on the objectives set by the head.
The Google Content Network is supported by first-rate
websites, blogs, news pages and other sites that chose to partner
with Google. The sites that belong in the network are being
displayed to meet AdWords ads, another product of Google. This
is because such sites can do advertising and marketing. This
process will reach their targeted audiences, consumers, and
enable them to maintain the loyalty of their customers.
Every day, hundreds of thousands of ads and campaigns
are published in content networks to market and advertise
whatever product and service a business produced. These ads are
published in the form of content materials.
Google’s Content Network is already considered the larg-
est network. It is designed for contextual advertising both in
virtual world and in the real world. And so, if you are into adver-
tising and marketing, you can take advantage of Google’s proven
targeting display of website and webpages.
With over 20 languages in over 100 countries, Google
Content Network has potentially gathered 75 per cent of Internet
users in the world. The probability of reaching out for potential
audiences and customers are high enough to get a considerable
control over your advertising impact and results. This means, if
you choose to advertise with the use of Google Content Network
along with Google Search Network, you can immediately reach
out to three users from four Internet users in the whole world.
This is because everything is powered by Google’s extensive web
search and linguistic processing technology.

formed in what conversion tracking and bid management can do

This way you can properly address any concerns and challenges
that may create conflicts in making your advertising campaigns
more effective and cost-efficient.
What does conversion tracking mean?
Conversion tracking is widely employed in online adver-
tising. The conversion happens by the time an Internet user

hide your ads even if they increase your ad traffic.

How to Efficiently Increase Visitor Satis-
faction and Loyalty with Google

tors become satisfied with the contents that they come across on
your website. The objective of producing highly satisfied visitors
is to turn these into regular customers. This marketing strategy
has been long running and keeping this principle has made a lot
of online businesses survive very long in the online industry.
As claimed, it is a lot easier said than done when we would
like to produce a satisfied visitor. Much more that it becomes
difficult when we are able to put a claim that we have earned the
loyalty of this satisfied customer. However, no matter how
difficult this can be, trying these basic steps will somehow help:
a. When a visitor gets into the site, make sure that
you give the right amount of content. It is the fundamental
reason of every visitor to find something worthwhile on the
website. Do not waste the time of visitor by giving him or her
nonsense and irrelevant content as this usually pulls away loyal
b. Do not force visitors to leave any personal informa-
tion like e-mail address as part of your e-mail marketing plan.
When a visitor is being forced to leave any personal information,
he usually remembers that incident on that site. This gives him a
bad experience about your site, thus forcing, him to not visit your
website the next time.
c. Give some freebies. A website visitor always enjoys
the feeling of being appreciated by all the freebies that he or she
receives from you. It is more likely that he or she will remember
your website if a good freebie was handed to him or her.

Google’s Developer Tools

ments in developing the applications and features that are
present on every product and service that it offers. Some of these
applications have been developed using some of the more power-
ful scripting languages such as Ajax and Perl.
These developer tools should be properly leveraged in or-
der to ensure that whatever happens with the feature or the
software itself, you have the power as the user to fix and resolve
the rising issues.
The coming of a better technology prompted many devel-
opers to adapt into the open source programs. The open source
code is the next genre of software development. For this reason,
users must take advantage in leveraging on knowing the ins and
outs of developer tools specifically the Google’s Developer Tools.

ing in developer’s tools:

Reduce Google Chat and E-mail Technical
Support Costs by Enhancing Self-Service
Every website that provides technical assistance at one
point thinks about how they can make their clients/customers
become self-sufficient in terms of knowledge and skills. This is
one of the major agenda that technical support services have
been thinking about – how they can eliminate the use of live
technical support and make their clients self-reliant.
One of the clear reasons why chat and e-mail technical
support services is being perceived to be eliminated is due to the
operating cost that this service is causing the support provider.
The cost that allowed for this support service to happen is no
joke. In fact, with just the operational cost of this, it can reach up
to a million dollars at a conservative.
One of the foreseen and immediate means to combat this
high cost in maintaining and facilitating the technical support
services is by making its clients self-sufficient in knowledge via
its online knowledge based support. The self service online is
proven to make the clients self reliant in looking for the best
resolutions for their concerns and issues. These self-service
online comprises of knowledge base information, self-help tools
to facilitate diagnosing the issue, and toolkits to help facilitate
the troubleshooting steps.
With this self-service online help that many websites have
developed, there is now an effective means and methods to
drastically reduce the operating costs in sustaining a chat and e-
mail technical support service provided to clients. This is an-
other breakthrough that majority of technical assistance provid-
ers are going to deliberately love about and enjoy.
