Google To Move Underwater And Take Internet Surfers For A Dive, Says SEO Company SachaMango

From September, the Catlin Seaview Survey, run by the University of Queensland in conjunction with insurers the Caitlin Group, will take to the water to conduct 360 degree panoramic filming of the greatest reef on earth, with Google making all 50,000 images available on Google Results, Google Earth and Google Maps through a new feature in Panaramio. There will also be a dedicated YouTube channel and live streams of the expedition team at work.

Professor Hoegh-Guldberg, Director of the Global Chane Institute and Chief Scientist on the project, said “The Catlin Seaview Survey comprises a series of studies which will reveal to the public one of the last frontiers on Earth: the oceans.

“For the first time in history, we have the technology to broadcast the findings and expedition through Google. Millions of people will be able to experience the life, the science and the magic that exists under the surface of our oceans. This project is very exciting.”

The survey will take place in three stages; a shallow reef survey of 20 sites across the2300km of the reef, a deep water survey using robots to depths of 30-100 metres, and finally a mega-fauna survey that will explore how green turtles, tiger sharks and manta rays migrate in response to ocean temperatures.

A spokesperson for SEO Company SachaMango Media, said: “This is a great example of how technology can be used to not only to help make ground-breaking research a reality, but also to educate and inspire the public to learn more about the underwater world around us. It forms an important link between scientific knowledge and public awareness, and gives people an opportunity to see rare sites that they might never get to see unless they actually visited Australia and went underwater themselves. The project will allow us all to go for a virtual dive without ever leaving the comfort of our own armchairs!

The survey is set to begin in September, although the project’s website already has some images from initial equipment testing and a demo of how the panaramio images will be viewed. However, there are already plans underway to document some of the most important oceans in the rest of the world.

“It’s no surprise that Google has got involved,” said the spokesperson.” As the biggest occupier of search space in the UK – some 93% – and with the features like Google Results, Earth and Maps already popular with the public, it makes sense they should be the partner of choice to develop the applications needed on its advanced platforms to view the incredible images that will come from the project.”

The Google Homepage Redesign Explained

QueryClick advise users on the recent changes to the Google homepage as part of its ongoing revamp.

Google has unveiled a new look for its homepage in what is being described as one of the firms ‘biggest changes to date of its homepage’. The revamp, which has been rolled out to a few selected users, has been designed to showcase all of Google’s other products to users – without having taking up too much of the homepage.

Christopher Liversidge, Managing Director of QueryClick explains: “The revamp of Google’s homepage is something that’s been around for a few weeks, and essentially it has been created in order to streamline and ‘tidy up’ Google’s homepage. Currently a user may see the ‘revamp strip’ along the top of the Google homepage, and when this strip is clicked, it reveals seven different Google products, such as Maps, YouTube, Images and Google+ to the user, with the option to reveal another eight related topics, including Calendar, Translate and Reader.”

This revamp, which Google has explained has been created in order to promote all of Google’s services to users in the most accessible and tidiest way possible, unlike some of the other search engines available, such as Yahoo’s infamously ‘busy’ design. Users will also be able to navigate to certain Google services much more easily as this redesign means a maximum of two clicks is all that is needed for a user to move from the homepage to another Google page, such as News or YouTube.

Christopher continues: “The Google homepage had undergone various redesigns since 1998, but the homepage has always stuck to the original format, that is the Google logo, the search bar and the list of all Google’s other services. However, this is the first time that Google has moved away from this design, and it;s very likely that these changes will have come about because of user feedback and case studies, and at QueryClick we know how important SEO case studies are to the search industry, so we’re really looking forward to seeing how this redesign will be received by users.”

Google AdWords Express Arrives in the UK and Germany

After a long wait, Google’s latest addition to the Adwords family is now available in the UK and Germany, and could make advertising online even simpler for companies in Britain and Europe, say QueryClick.

This month it was announced that Google would be launching AdWords Express, a new service that they promise is a faster and simpler way for smaller and more specifically, local businesses to kick start and run a paid online advertising campaign. The service, which was launched in the US in Autumn last year, and was originally named Boost is a great addition to Google’s existing AdWords services, and will help inexperienced and smaller businesses gain a better online presence, say QueryClick.

Christopher Liversidge, QueryClick‘s Managing Director comments: “AdWords Express has been designed and created for businesses that don’t already use AdWords to help them become more visible online, and therefore attract more customers. Because Google is aware that using a new product like AdWords can be quite intimidating the very first time, they have specially created AdWords Express to be not only very easy to use but also very simple and quick to set up for the first time too.”

When a new user uses AdWords Express for the very first time, all they have to do is provide some very basic information, then create their ad using their own words, and their campaign will be finished and ready to go when the user is. AdWords Express will then work out what searches would trigger that ad to appear, and then the ad will only be shown to people who have been looking for the kind of products that that business has to offer. Also, the ad will be shown in Google Maps, using a blue pin, which means that users can see where a business is before they click on the website.

Christopher continues: “What’s really good about AdWords Express is that it allows people to create really specific ads, such as product specific and location specific, which means people in a certain area of the UK and Germany will be able to find you quicker and more easily. So, for instance, if a webmaster of a toy shop in Manchester signs up to AdWords Express, they will appear whenever a user searches for “toy shops in Manchester” or if they’re already in Manchester, then if they search for “toys” that ad will then appear, which means that search becomes easier for both the consumer and the webmaster.”

Google Confirm Testing of New Search Options and Results, say QueryClick

The search engine giant is currently testing out a number of new features on the search results page that could soon change the way the site identifies the most relevant results.

After months of speculation, Google has finally confirmed that it is indeed trying out a new user interface test on their search results page. The changes, which show the left side search filters are in a scrollable filter, are just part of their move towards testing a form of infinite scroll web search, which is when users don’t have to click a button to take them to the next page, as scrolling down will load more search results instantly, which will give users more and more results for their query.

Christopher Liversidge, QueryClick’s Managing Director comments: “Google’s decision to test infinite scroll web results comes less than a year after they were forced to deny that they were doing exactly that, when a report surfaced in November 2010 that they were already working towards creating these results. While these reports were found to be based on search results caused by a Chrome extension called FasterChrome, the potential for these kinds of results obviously interested Google.”

The news that Google is experimenting with new features on their search results page shows that the search engine is keen to give the user as many results in possible, and also means that they won’t have to continually click through to other pages in order to find what they’re looking for, say QueryClick.

Chris continues: “Over the past year it’s become clear that Google has made a number of tweaks and changes to the way they display their results, in order to make them more accessible to the user. For example, in July 2010, it was revealed that they were making big changes to their image search and Image Search Ads, including larger thumbnail previews, a hover pane, a new landing page, and of course, instant scrolling. So, if these trials are successful, instant scrolling and a whole host of other features could soon be the latest additions to Google’s search results, which can only be good news for Google’s users.”

Google Moving Into Mobile Phone Credit Cards, SEO Company Queryclick.com Says It’s Got Its Eyes On The Money

Mountain View giant Google is said to be considering a move into mobile phone credit card payments, according to sources speaking to the Wall Street Journal.

Reports suggest that the search engine is poised to forge bonds with MasterCard and Citigroup so that Android users will have the ability to pay for purchases with the help of ‘near-field communications’ technology (NFC).

At the launch of the Nexus S, allusions were made to such a move, and fans of Android are welcoming the development. NFC mobile payments are also rumoured to be making their way to Apple devices in the near future, with many expecting subsequent iPhones to be equipped with NFC chips, while Orange has already joined forces with Barclaycard with the aim of offering contactless payments.

If the reports are true, Google could be set to open a new round of iPhone versus Android debates, claims SEO company Queryclick.com. A spokesperson said: “It’s a slow burning battle, but Google’s Android and Apple’s iPhones are set to continue squabbling for top position in the hearts of smartphones fans for years to come.

“While Apple may have had the initial advantage, technology geeks quickly embrace the flexibility and functionality of the Android operating system. New moves like this are exactly the kind of thing Google can use to its advantage, and if it beats Apple to the punch with contactless payments, it could cement its place at the top.”

The Nexus S is currently the only NFC ready phone on the market, although Samsung is slated to be releasing the Galaxy S II with this functionality in the summer. Apple CEO Steve Jobs has already announced NFC technology will not be included in the iPhone 5, stating his belief that the technology is still at too early a stage of its evolutionary process.

SEO Experts QueryClick Welcome Launch of Google’s New Online Magazine Think Quarterly

In a word dominated by constant algorithm updates and product launches, Google’s release of this polished, beautifully crafted, and highly informative magazine (or book as it is referred to by the search engine giant) offers a more reflective and in-depth look at the wider issues surrounding online business.

As Matt Brittin, Managing Director of Google’s UK and Ireland Operations, insists, Think Quarterly is:

“a breathing space in a busy world. It’s a place to take time out and consider what’s happening and why it matters.”

For UK SEO company QueryClick.com, the online magazine is a very welcome addition to the industry. A QueryClick spokesperson commented on the benefits of the publication:

“Although the vast majority of businesses are highly aware of the importance of online marketing, and SEM in particular, there remains a degree of inhibition regarding the ins and outs of search engines and the extent of the importance of active engagement with search engine optimisation.

“Think Quarterly will hopefully serve to demystify some of the more inaccessible tenets of search engine operations by reaching out to businesses on a more accessible level.

“By attracting a broad spectrum of business minded individuals hoping to gain a better understanding of online culture, the significance of SEM will hopefully permeate (whether directly or indirectly) through the pages of the magazine.”

UK SEO Company QueryClick Ltd Analyse The Updated Version of Google Analytics

Four days ago, Google announced that a new version of Google Analytics would be rolled out to all GA users. For UK SEO company QueryClick.com, the new and improved feature means an enhanced ability to analyse data and report their findings back to clients.

The announcement came at the Google Analytics User Conference in San Francisco last Thursday. Though the new version will not be immediately available to users, a closed beta version has been offered out to willing test participants, eager to get a first look at any changes and improvements.

Many of the refinements which have been implemented were the result of feedback from frequent GA users, something which has been backed by the SEO experts at QueryClick.com:

“By assessing the actual user experience, and acting upon feedback provided by those who rely on Google Analytics on a daily basis, Google has demonstrated its ambition to create a truly user-friendly experience.”

Some of the major refurbishments include the ability to view various advanced segments without the need to compare against ‘All Visits’, as well as the option to customize an account dashboard. The latter provides users with a greater level of control over the hierarchy of their data, as well as allowing for enhanced visual customization; you can view data in whichever format (pie chart, timeline, table etc…) you prefer.

Much of the renovation has been focused on the look and feel of the user interface, with significant alterations being made to the overall design, as well as to the report nomenclature. What was previously categorised as Goals will now be labelled as Conversions, while Network Properties and browser capabilities will now fall under the umbrella of Technology.

For QueryClick.com, the allowance for multiple dashboards per client is one of the more attractive new features. A spokesperson said:

“This allows for a far more comprehensive set of account highlights, offering users the ability to access the key points of different aspects of any campaign with far greater ease.

“For example, those who track the social media performance of a site, or have a particular interest in specific site activity, can collate all the basic info they need in an easy to reach location.”

The latest development has come following the recent integration of Google Analytics with Google Webmaster Tools. Though the integration was not deeply rooted – users can now access a client’s referral traffic report from the GWT links section – it provides a preview of things to come.

Google’s Decision To Include Social Media Updates In SERPs Is The Latest Move Towards A Greater Emphasis On The Social Sphere, Says Search Engine Optimisation Experts QueryClick

In true Google style, barely a month goes by without the search giant making a tweak here or a change there to its algorithm.

While some changes are kept under lock and key to prevent spammers and unethical SEO practices degrading the quality of search results, other tweaks are allowed to create something of a stir.

Google’s most recent announcement regarding its inclusion of social media results in SERPs was one such change that – quite appropriately – caused sites like Twitter to get all in a flutter.

Working by aggregating content from social networking sites such as YouTube, Twitter and MySpace, the move is yet another step towards a bold blend of search and social; all under one roof.

Commenting on Google’s decision to make its search results richer in social media-related content, a spokesperson for SEO experts QueryClick said:

“QueryClick’s SEO predictions for 2011 contained a big focus on the move to mobile search as well as a greater emphasis on social media so it’s not surprising that Google have taken the step to introduce more social media-specific content in their SERPs.

“In terms of the benefits of this change for search engine optimisation, there’s now improved opportunities for sites which are under performing or in highly competitive verticals, jumping onto the first page – albeit temporarily – if their social media output relates to search terms.”

Wikipedia Is The Site To Beat According To SEO Experts QueryClick.com

“Wikipedia (WIK-i-PEE-dee-ə) is a free, web-based, collaborative, multilingual encyclopedia project supported by the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation. Its 17 million articles (over 3.5 million in English) have been written collaboratively by volunteers around the world, and almost all of its articles can be edited by anyone with access to the site. Wikipedia was launched in 2001 by Jimmy Wales and Larry Sanger and has become the largest and most popular general reference work on the Internet, ranking eighth among all websites on Alexa and having 365 million readers.”

Based on the wisdom of crowds, nothing summarises a concept better than Wikipedia. The reference site has came a long way in its ten years in existence. From a heavily criticised agglomeration of unreliable information, and the bane of the teaching profession, to the most widely used point of reference on the internet.

Its credibility derives largely from the very aspect of its being which was the cause of such negativity in the early days; the indiscriminate access to the article editing process. By not only affording everyone the chance to modify, update and add to existing articles, but to encourage this strategy, the site attracted many sceptics.

However, following some extensive Wiki-vandalism, in which users would deliberately and cynically alter information, it seems that the joke has worn off. Prevailing attitudes have demonstrated the overwhelming success of the open approach to knowledge sharing, in which it has been proven that those who actively edit and submit articles are the people who care enough about a particular subject to do so.

According to SEO company QueryClick.com, such an approach has unquestionably paid off, a fact powerfully demonstrated by the strength of Wikipedia’s performance with search engines. A spokesperson from QueryClick said:

“From personal experience, we are all aware of the unrivalled visibility of the online encyclopedia in search engine results pages. It is often we find that all that stands between our clients and the top spot is a Wikipedia entry on that particular subject.”

Speaking of a venture which has paid off, the relative success of Wikipedia seems all the more impressive given its non-commercial status. It is entirely free to use, and is funded by the Wikipedia Foundation which in turn relies on public contributions and grants.

Microsoft Could Upset The Status Quo With Plans To Join Online TV Battle With Apple And Google, Says Seo Experts Queryclick.com

It’s been reported that Microsoft is on the brink of revealing a web connected television service that will directly rival those of its main competitors, Google and Apple.

The new device is expected to be showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, and will mark yet another effort by the software giant to beat rivals by releasing its own version of already hyped products, claimed a spokesperson for SEO company Queryclick.com.

However, this isn’t the first time Microsoft has made a foray into online TV. Back in 2002 it launched a media centre platform which, while innovative, didn’t have the audience reach needed to make it a success at the time. It’s a different story these days, and Microsoft could be in a position to release a very strong TV offering.

Brier Dudley of the Seattle Times explained that the device uses a version of software used in Microsoft’s embedded device software overlaid with the interface used by Windows Media Centre. It will offer media streaming and remote-control capabilities.

SEO company Queryclick.com said Microsoft could gain a lot of traction in the market by pipping Google to the post with its release of the new software. “Despite a slow start, Apple has since had a lot of success with its TV offering and it was no surprise to us that Google would be running with the innovation.

“Now there are rumours that Microsoft is also about to join the battle and, what with Google TV already suffering delays and setbacks, it could have an opportunity to put a dent in the market for the search giant. While early adopters may have already chosen their web-TV device, there will be a significant number of people who will surely wait to see what Microsoft will bring to the table.”

At the end of last year there were reports that Google asked a number of its TV-manufacturing partners to delay the release of their Google TV units as a direct result of complaints from early critics.

Google Plans Education Software For App Shop

SEO experts Queryclick.com thinks Google is on the right track with plans to sell education software through its app store.

Always a company keen to look ahead for potential expansion, it’s been revealed that Google is planning to sell education software through its app store.

The industry for online learning products in the USA has been predicted to reach a value of as much as $5 billion in coming years, and recent reports that Google has been talking to educational software companies suggest the search king is eyeing a slice of the educational-pie.

Google App Marketplace already has games and instruction tools for teachers but the online powerhouse is said to be in the process of luring new developers onboard, to help it broaden its offerings. This would allow outside developers to market their products to educational establishments and would be a new venture for the search engine, which already works with schools by providing teachers and students with free software.

Google is wise to continue looking for ways to remain relevant, said a spokesperson for SEO company Queryclick.com. “Google didn’t get where it is today by sitting back and letting new innovations roll over it. Time and time again we’ve seen the search giant snap up start ups or established players in markets that are set to heat up.

“What’s more, apps are where it’s at right now, largely thanks to Apple and the original iTunes model, so it seems sensible for Google to find ways to offer unique content and applications to users.”

If Google’s foray into educational apps is successful, it could provide the company with a substantial new revenue stream, but could also prove invaluable when it comes to netting new customers for the company. By giving Google products prominence at an education level, the Mountain View giants could build brand recognition at an early age and ensure it remains relevant for the next generation of internet users.

Speaking of the initiative, Google’s business development manager for education, Obadiah Greenberg, said: “If we can provide access to education apps to our 10 million users in thousands of schools, then that would be a win all around.”

Queryclick agreed with the view that Google could be making a tactical brand movement as well as a revenue driven one, explaining: “For Google, brand is incredibly important and, despite hanging on to the title as the biggest search engine, it can’t afford to sit back. Recent news that Facebook has overtaken the search giant as the most popular site for American users is sure to have the company searching for new opportunities, and the educational business could be the perfect opening.

Search Engine Optimisation Experts QueryClick Welcome The Intellectualism of Google Search

Google has long dominated the search culture in society, providing solutions to all manner of queries. Whether you need directions, a plumber or a birthday present, for many the first stop is Google. It has entered into the social lexicon as a synonymous term for search itself; to “Google” something is to find the answer to your question.

The search engine giant has taken a step further into our lives recently with the development of their ‘Culturomics’ tool. This searchable database of over 5m digitised texts allows Google to compare and analyse the significance of certain words, phrases and concepts within the context of culture, dependant upon their relative proliferation throughout the literature.

The tool represents a new dimension in search, providing insightful information on society in addition to simply presenting users with suggested solutions to arbitrary questions. Of course, Google has always utilised various algorithms in their quest to organize SERPs into an order based on relevance, however, the latest undertaking offers the means to engage with that order in a more analytical and in-depth manner.

A QueryClick spokesperson commented on the new approach to cultural research:

“The computational analysis of cultural trends is not a new phenomenon, but the Culturomics tool represents the most comprehensive and widely available instance of such an approach to sociological study. Using the tool, research into linguistic development as well as cultural shifts can be studied with ease.”

For instance, a quick comparison of the proliferation of Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra over time shows that the latter was theoretically the most popular/famous/written about of the two until the late 1980s. After this point Elvis took over and has remained more culturally significant since.

In addition to the culture comparison tool, Google has also developed the Reading Level function, available within the Advanced Search options. The process allows users to set their reading level to either basic, intermediate or advanced depending on the complexity of results they seek. This filter then separates the wheat from the chaff so to speak, and purports to offer a more relevant group of results based on the user’s reading level.

The results can sometimes cause concern with regards to their implications however. For example, a search for ‘biology’ on the advanced level returns the wikipedia page for the term, whilst the basic results allocate top spot to a video of the Girls Aloud song entitled ‘Biology’. From this it seems that if you don’t like complex biology, you must either be a girl, prefer pop music, or both.

SEO Experts QueryClick.com Discuss Google Place Search and The Heightened Importance of ‘Local’ Results

The launch of Google Place Search at the end of October has significantly altered the face of Google SERPs. With the focus now placed emphatically on local results, the ramifications of this change will affect a range of companies as well as the operations of the average SEO.

The most notable change to the result lay-out is the abolition of the “7-pack” section which previously appeared at the top of the page. The familiar grouping of 7 local search results adjacent to the map display has been replaced by a more comprehensive listing of local search results, with the geographical visualisations now located in the right hand column – an alteration which has caused concern due to the subsequent obscuration of the Adwords section.

According to Andrew Shortland, founder of ‘Local SEO Guide’, the tool lends itself to small businesses. His belief is that the new format “intensifies the competition for local rankings”. Shortland also points out that sites with a physical address within the searched for city will gain an advantage over those which lack the corresponding location.

In a similar vein, customer reviews will also benefit a business site, affording reviewed businesses a greater prominence within the SERPs.

The driving theory behind the latest development is the statistic offered by Google that over 20% of searches are location related. This may now be increased as search habits are modified to make better use of the Place Search function.

SEO company QueryClick.com believe that different sectors will be affected to varying extents by the introduction of this tool.

“The tool will affect some industries more than others, with one obvious example being the hospitality industry, for whom geo-modified search queries will play a more significant role. In such cases, search engine optimisation will revolve more closely around the location of a hotel or restaurant. Place Search definitely heightens the importance of local results, but does not represent a complete usurpation of organic search.”

SEO experts QueryClick Welcome the Decision to Create Real-Time Analytics Functionality for Social Media Giant Twitter

Following Twitter’s announcement that it will be launching a free analytics service as of the end of 2010, users will soon be able track and monitor their online activities and the success of their tweets.

With social media platforms becoming increasingly prominent in website promotion and customer engagement, the ability to track the success of Twitter-based activities has long been on the wish lists of everyday users and businesses alike.

UK SEO experts, QueryClick believe the arrival of a Twitter analytics dashboard is a further sign that SEO is increasingly affected by social media.

Discussing the matter, a QueryClick spokesperson said:

“Social media is one of the fastest growing sectors in web but for the past couple of year’s there’s been little evidence to support the likes of Twitter and Facebook holding much sway over SEO in terms of boosting back links and driving traffic in the long term rather than temporarily.

“Recent findings suggest that this could be about to change however so it’s increasingly important for businesses to get ready for the social media surge and track the successes and failures of their output in a similar fashion to Google Analytics.”

The decision to roll out a Twitter analytics package is also speculated to be among a number of measures that are already taking shape on the site.

A complete redesign of the site, for example, now features a split screen for multimedia content on one side and recognisable Twitter chatter on the other.

Clearly part of CEO Evan William’s desire to create “A better Twitter”, the redesign and new analytics dashboard is set to make microblogging a force to be reckoned with on top of the 90 million tweets that are currently posted daily.

SEO web designers QueryClick have been quick to warn businesses to make the most of Twitter’s analytics dashboard while it remains free:

“Should Twitter’s analytics dashboard take off, the chances are there will be a specific model rolled out for businesses and marketeers which will contain more advanced features and will most likely not be free.

Search Engine Optimisation Experts QueryClick.com Don’t Subscribe to the Growing Sense that Google Instant Signifies the Death of SEO

The launch of Google’s latest search enhancing tool, Google Instant, will change the way we search and are searched for via the internet. The latest development in auto-complete functionality has enabled the user to view SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages) before finishing the query, and without the need to press enter or the search button.

This is a clever, tidy piece of design on the search engine’s part, offering quicker and more efficient access to the end result. Pre-Instant searches were thought to have lasted, on average, some 25 seconds. With the advent of the new feature, it is believed that 2-5 seconds will be saved per query as a result.

Whilst performing a Google search was quick previously, it is now almost… instantaneous.

This is all very well, but how will the latest evolution of search affect SEOs (search engine optimisers) whose task of utilising search term usage in the process of driving sites up the rankings – amongst many other things – may be negatively affected at the expense of quicker search results. Search engine optimisation company QueryClick Ltd do not adhere to such pessimism.

With the SEO industry embroiled in a state of panic, QueryClick Ltd are not clamouring for the nearest industry exit, far from it:

“A similar epidemic of paranoia swept across the industry when personalised search first came to prominence, an feeling which has turned out to have been unjustified. The development of Google Instant may be a slight game-changer, but it does not signify the death of SEO.”

Certainly, this seems to be the dominant opinion emanating from the Google camp as well, with vice president of search products and user experience, Marissa Mayer reassuring SEO practitioners that there will be only a “small change for the SEO community.”

Internet Marketing Services Examines Googles Testing

Internet marketing services includes features which influence the victory of a website and since Google search is and has been the leader within the internet world for a long time controlling over 75% of the internet traffic and any changes made by google affects all websites which is the foundation of marketing for webmasters, google then becomes a target of interest for any changes they now implement.

Internet marketing services includes features which influence the victory of a website. The internet is a uncertain and evolving entity with a life of it’s own or so it seems. Many of the strategies used successfully nine or ten years ago have now become either totally out-of-date in usefulness or simply not able to provide the website owner with the tools to successfully compete with other website owners.

Internet marketing services studies and uses all the latest and newest techniques due to successful quality results of the tests that are conducted upon detection of a system or software.

Since research is consistently conducted, many times new information is discovered and either eliminated from it’s knowledge base due to inferior information or features and also Internet Marketing Services will disclose new trends or information that is being used by various search engines or marketing gurus that is utmost valuable for webmasters to learn about.

One of the most recent interesting discoveries involved a report from various parties about Google’s change to it’s systems which was reported as being implemented now. This change discovered by Internet Marketing Services was reported not as planned change but as an actual change being implemented. As a result, since Internet Marketing Services main goal is to research and gather various information together in order to report its discoveries, this was began.

The alteration expected was that paid listings will no longer show in a different background color on the side and top of google. The party disclosing this change was extremely excited especially over the listings on the top of google above the natural listings.

Bing Innovation Reinvigorates Search Industry Says UK SEO Experts Queryclick

In a bid to continue taking noticeable bites out of Google’s market share, Bing has unleashed yet another ground-breaking web-based application to woo searchers.

An add-on to Bing Maps, the cutting-edge app known as ‘Taxi Fare Calculator’ now allows users to determine prospective cab costs when planning journeys in major cities.

Part of a raft of new applications currently sweeping Microsoft’s search engine, SEO industry experts QueryClick believe Bing’s continued innovation makes it even more capable of chipping away at Google’s market share:

“Since the late 90s Google has held an almost unbreakable stranglehold over the search industry accounting for a staggering 60% of the market share.

“Despite Bing serving a mere 12.7% of the industry, the speed with which Microsoft are swaying millions of web users is not to be ignored.

“Microsoft realised early on that it would have to offer netizens something other than search if it was to stand a chance at cracking Google which is why we will continue to see developers pulling out all the stop to create web applications that can’t be found anywhere else.”

The new features on Bing Maps don’t stop there however with a series of other applications that cover everything from weather reports to restaurant reviews.

Weatherbug, for example, takes internet weather forecasting to an entirely new level with radar imagery, live video from observation stations and satellite technology that can accurately track and predict weather systems days in advance.

SEO Experts QueryClick.com fear Google-Verizon Talks May Lead to End of Net Neutrality

According to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), net neutrality advocates a level playing field for all, with no form of content afforded preference over any other. This concept has come under threat recently from supposed plans by Google and Verizon, one of the USA’s leading Internet Service Providers.

The partnership between the search engine giant and telecoms operator Verizon are though to be concerned with the formation of a tiered payment system, in which content creators would pay Verizon to ensure that their site gained prominence over others.

The involvement of Google in the discussion of a fee-paying service will have come as a surprise to many, following their appeal to protect the “openness of the internet”, and the ability of users to have their content made available to the world without having to pay for the privilege.

Such favouritism would go against the tenets of net neutrality, and has evoked a counter response from the FCC, whose chairman Julius Genachowski deemed such payment-for-preference arrangements as “unacceptable”.

SEO experts QueryClick.com believe that if an agreement between Google and Verizon results in any system which involves a site paying for privileged online presence, the ordinary internet user would eventually encounter rising broadband costs in order for sites to recoup their expenses.

When assessing this situation though, it is necessary to investigate the concept of net neutrality itself, and whether it even exists in reality.

Search Engine Bing’s Increased Market Share Hailed As Catalyst For Innovation By Search Engine Marketing Experts QueryClick.com

After a year online, Microsoft’s search engine Bing has successfully asserted itself as a real industry competitor by securing 12.7% of the search market share in just 12 months.

While Google and Yahoo retain 62.6% and 18.9% of the market respectively, Bing’s achievements are thought to have found a resonance with web users through its ‘consumer friendly approach’ and ‘type less, do more’ strap line.

Microsoft’s mobile web strategy has also added to Bing’s success with an iPhone widget being downloaded by some 4.3 million US users in the past six months alone.

Search engine marketing experts QueryClick praised Bing’s successes in such a highly competitive industry.

A spokesperson for the company said:

“When you think about web search there’s one big player and that’s Google. For years, Google have held sway over the market without much competition but this could all be about to change.

“Microsoft have invested a significant amount of money into positioning Bing as a recognised search engine and will continue to do so. In a bid to offer web users a service that goes beyond that of Google and other rivals, Bing have had to push innovation to its limits and, in turn, Google needs to do its bit to stay one step ahead.”

Looking ahead to the next twelve months, Bing developers revealed that the service would move towards returning search results based on the user’s location which would encourage more relevant suggestions; especially where shopping and travel are concerned.

SEO experts QueryClick.com Welcome China’s Renewal of Google’s ICP License

Following speculation that the search engine giant would have its license revoked after its redirection of Chinese users to the unfiltered Hong Kong site, the Chinese government have decided to renew Googles ICP license, for 12 months at least.

This is the latest in a long series of events involving Google and the Chinese authorities, in which both have refused to compromise in their operations. Now however, reconciliation has been achieved by the mutual appeasement of both sides, with sacrifices being made in order to prolong the presence of Google in China.

The immediate outcome of the announcement was a 2.8% rise in Google shares during Friday trading. The license renewal is a significant factor in the continued growth of Google, as well as a beneficial conclusion for the Chines internet industry and internet community.

In the opinion of SEO experts QueryClick.com, having access to the usage of the largest internet community in the world will prove to be a seminal step in Google’s future success. While the access of the Chinese public to the Google search engine provides a huge boost to the improving sense of open-ness in China, as well as bolstering their economy

However, the search engine has had to make a concession insofar as users are required to make an extra click in order to access Google’s search facilities on the Hong Kong site. This may lead to users turning to an alternative and more convenient option such as the Chinese engine Baidu.com.
