Google Search results can now be tailored to an individual user’s preferences. The website has introduced the option to block sites from future results, and thereby shape future ones.

Writing on the Google Blog, Search Quality Engineers Amay Champaneria and Beverly Yang wrote that “You’ve probably had the experience where you’ve clicked a result and it wasn’t quite what you were looking for. Perhaps the result just wasn’t quite right, but sometimes you may dislike the site in general, whether it’s offensive, pornographic or of generally low quality. For times like these, you’ll start seeing a new option to block particular domains from your future search results. Now when you click a result and then return to Google, you’ll find a new link next to “Cached” that reads “Block all example.com results.”

Although all users will see the new link, only those who are singed in will be able to confirm that they want to block a site.

Once a domain has been blocked, it won’t appear in future results. Users will, however, be notified if search results would have contained results that their preferences now mean they have blocked. The list of blacklisted sites can also be managed on a new settings page.

Optimizing Your Website for Search Engines
You can add meta tags to your website to help search engines find your website based on the keywords you specify, for help on using meta tags check out this link:

really the only way to get in the first page of google’s search results, is for someone to search specifically for your website. google searches for the keywords, then displays the result by relevance, and some people do pay google to be in their results.

further, google encourages webowners to register their website with google for improved search results, which is free to do. you can register with yahoo as well
google search register:

Optimizing Your Website for Search Engines
The reason you appear in meta search engines and not in the top search engines has to do with visibility, or a lack thereof. Your meta tags and title tags are probably doing just fine if your positioned well in the search engines that use those fields as the defining criteria.

The search engines you should care about are Google (with a 64% marketshare), Yahoo! (with 20%), and MSN (with 10%). Ask has less than a 4% share, followed by the all the rest.

The formula for ranking, simply put, is:

Quality, Traffic-Driving Content + Relevant Inbound Links = High Positioning

Quality Content includes have titles that are more appealing in the search engine results pages, increasing your CTR. It also means having engaging content (like video) to maintain a low bounce rate. It doesn’t hurt to follow the 10 steps at www.top10seotips.com to improve the way web crawlers index and categorize content either.

Relevant inbound links (IBLs) should come from popular websites on pages that relate to your product or service. A link from a farming page to a page about dating will have less value than a link from a dating article. A link from a site with little traffic will have less value than a link from a site with plenty of traffic.

Good Luck!

5 Tips for Writing the Perfect Blog Post
If you use WordPress, or Blogger, or any other modern blogging tool for that matter, the search engines are “pinged” and know right away that you have made a post. So, don’t worry about submitting it to search engines manually (and for heaven’s sake, don’t pay someone who claims to do that)!

In general, the best method nowadays is to generate some social traffic. Post a link to you post to Facebook, Twitter, pin your post’s featured image to Pinterest.


Catchy Headlines
Business Models are simulations of actual business functioning.
They act as ideal real life examples,and help participants actively discuss the pros and cons of the situation given.

A business Model gives a Full Account of any particular Business Scenario. Readers of this model/ Participants are then asked to discuss the strengths and weaknessess of it. Put it simply, one has to SWOT analyze the Business Model based on different parameters.

Each participant comes up with his/her own views on the subject. Cumulative views and different view points are then listed and ranked based on their importance and relevance.

Thus at the end of the session, a business models suitability and viability is drafted and conclusions are drawn thereon.

The more the Business Model Analysis a person does, the more exposed he gets to real life corporate situations.
Hence it is said, that Business Models act as Good Simulators.


Search Engine Optimization
A search engine is a service provided by some company (Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, etc.) which will search through millions of web pages for keywords that a person types into a field. For instance, if I type “Puppy” into a search box on Google’s web site, there are currently 40,800,000 matches available. If the search provider has a good search algorithm in their software, then the most relevant pages should be listed first. In my case, I’m a happy searcher, because after the Google Image samples, the first result listed is the Puppy Linux website, which is the only Puppy I would ever be searching for online. Most search providers keep track of what websites people will actually visit after doing a search. They then use the results to make sure those pages are closer to the top of the list for the next time someone searches for the same keyword(s).

Image search optimization is about using images on your website to draw more “click-throughs” from the search provider, thereby raising your rank in the search list. This, in turn, helps to ensure that you keep getting more visits to your site. A neat article I just found by typing “image search optimization” into Google Search is linked below.
