A useful tool for SEO's, the Lynx text reader, which is the format Google used to crawl the pages. Firefox has an add-on for this to test our pages in Lynx text reader. So it is worth to test all our site pages in lynx browser.

I use the Google personalized page, otherwise known as iGoogle quite a bit.  I like the variety of gadgets that you can customize your page with, and the addition of themes last year made it even better.  The problem was that there just wasn't many themes available.

Well Google has opened the official theme gallery where there are quite a few more themes, and resources for users to design their own themes.  Check it out.

Hi All


I'm using Windows XP Home SP2 and IE7. Can anybody tell me why the google.com and google.co.uk home pages both display this message when I try to access them -

Can not open the vhcs2.conf config file !
Pleas contact your system administrator

and yes the spelling mistake is there too!

Also, any search using the google tool bar returns -

Error 404! File Not Found!

Any help would be greatfully received as this is driving me mad.
Thank You in advance.

Why Powerset (unlike Snap, Kosmix, Clusty, and Eurekster) will beat Google


High on the "will this startup tank after five months" checklist is "Does this company want to be the next Google?" Here are the reasons that search engines like Clusty and Eurekster aren't catching on, and why one new search startup actually has a chance.
Google has created a search site without any Google branding to test new features. The site, SearchMash, has a simple blue and white interface with a search bar and an option to click on "popular searches." Once keywords are entered, the results page features links to results running down the left side of the page...."

Now they are taking themselves way too seriously.

Google has said it intends to crack down on the use of its name as a generic verb, in phrases such as "to google someone."

The Internet search giant said such phrases were potentially damaging to its brand.

"We think it's important to make the distinction between using the word 'Google' to describe using Google to search the Internet and using the word 'google' to generally describe searching the Internet. It has some serious trademark i...

I just searched Google for 'Karl', and got pages with 'Carl' in them. No, bad Google! This is why I switched from Infoseek to HotBot back in the day. It's okay to ask me if I meant to search for Carl, but until I tell you otherwise you should assume that when I type Karl it's because I mean Karl and not Carl. And I'm quite capable of typing "(Karl OR Carl)" if that's what I want, so don't go using that as an excuse.

"'What I get a lot is: "Why are you against the Semantic Web?" I am
not against the Semantic Web. But from Google's point of view, there
are a few things you need to overcome, incompetence being the first,'
Norvig said. Norvig clarified that it was not Berners-Lee or his group
that he was referring to as incompetent, but the general user.

From an article posted on Slashdot, it appears that Google exec Peter Norvig thinks that the general computer user is incompetent. I know there are a fe...

"Google late Wednesday opened up its much-anticipated Calendar service to the public in beta form, complete with Gmail integration and SMS notifications. Code-named CL2, the free service enables users to quickly add events and reminders, send invitations and share their calendar with others.

Google Calendar can import events directly from Microsoft Outlook and Yahoo! Calendar, in addition to supporting calendar standards to view schedules on any device supporting iCal or XML files. Gmail will...

It seems Google has now entered the web page area.  It seems they are offering free webspace and a site designer now.

"In order to operate from China, we have removed some content from the search results available on google.cn, in response to local law, regulation or policy. While removing search results is inconsistent with Google's mission, providing no information (or a heavily degraded user experience that amounts to no information) is more inconsistent with our mission."

What happened to "do no evil"? I'm very dissapointed in Google over this.

For all the guys who think Gmail and google mail are the same here comes the shock the answer is surprisingly “no”. Google failed to resolve the dispute regarding the Gmail trademark in Uk.

Does it mean No more Gmail?

Ans: No, Gmail will continue to exist outside UK and will be run by Google groups.

As for as U.K is concerned they still have a problem issuing a Gmail address to the new users, hence they have decided to start the mail company googlemail for U.K users. If U gonna be in ...
