A widget is a little mini-application that you can put into your blog or web page. Widgets are also known as modules, snippets, and plug-ins. Widgets can be written in HTML, but also in JavaScript, flash and other scripting languages that will be run when the page is called. You can put it on any blog or web page that you own.

Content Management System

Content Management System (CMS) is a software system used for content management.This includes computer files, image media, audio files, electronic documents and web content.Like you know a standard HTML website is static and fixed. Which means that to change any text and images, the page files that make up the site must be edited then uploaded to the web server. To do this you either have to be a web programmer or you have to hire one.

Here with a content management system, the content within the pages that make up the site is not pre-written into the pages, but pulled from an online database when a user requests a page. You have the ability to alter the content within the database at any time via an easy to use administration interface with your web browser. The logon to your administration uses a secure password therefore no one else can alter your website.

Optimize Your Title Tag

The title tag is an essential part of a web page and it is a short description of that page, and the most important keywords should go first. All pages should have a title tag and all title tags in your site should be unique. Don't repeat the same title tag for multiple documents. It should be inserted into the header of your web page and it looks like:

TITLE> XYZ Company Home Page TITLE>
(its just an sample, not the exact code)

Since this tag plays a vital role in determining your site's ranking in the SERPs, optimization in each page is necessary and pay a lot of attention to the words that appear in this tag and the order in which they appear. You need to develop a crisply worded title tag that includes your most relevant keyword phrases and performs the function of announcing the summary of your web page's content.

How to Optimize Title Tag ?

It is better to place your service or products in short descriptive sentences (60 characters recommended) in the title tag than your company/domain name. This is because most Internet users search for specific products or services, not company names. But if you strongly feel like placing your company name in your title tag, then place it at the end of this tag.

What is PageRank?

“PageRank is only one of the methods Google uses to determine a page’s relevance or importance.” [PageRank Explained Correctly]

“Google uses many factors in ranking. Of these, the PageRank algorithm might be the best known. PageRank evaluates two things: how many links there are to a web page from other pages, and the quality of the linking sites. With PageRank, five or six high-quality links from websites such as and would be valued much more highly than twice as many links from less reputable or established sites.” [Google Librarian Central]

“PageRank has only ever been an approximation of the quality of a web page and has never had anything to do with the measuring of the topical relevance of a web page. Topical relevance is measured with link context and on-page factors such as keyword density, title tag, and everything else.” [PageRank: An Essay]

How Does PageRank Work?

  1. PageRank is only one of numerous methods Google uses to determine a page’s relevance or importance.
  2. Google interprets a link from page A to page B as a vote, by page A, for page B. Google looks not only at the sheer volume of votes; among 100 other aspects it also analyzes the page that casts the vote.
  3. PageRank is based on incoming links, but not just on the number of them - relevance and quality are important.
  4. PR(A) = (1-d) + d(PR(t1)/C(t1) + … + PR(tn)/C(tn)). That’s the equation that calculates a page’s PageRank.
  5. Not all links weight the same when it comes to PR.
  6. If you had a web page with a PR8 and had 1 link on it, the site linked to would get a fair amount of PR value. But, if you had 100 links on that page, each individual link would only get a fraction of the value.
  7. Bad incoming links don’t have impact on Page Rank.
  8. Page Rank considers site age, backlink relevancy and backlink duration.
  9. Content is not taken into account when PageRank is calculated.
  10. PageRank does not rank web sites as a whole, but is determined for each page individually.
  11. Each inbound link is important to the overall total. Except banned sites, which don’t count.
  12. PageRank values don’t range from 0 to 10. PageRank is a floating-point number.
  13. Each Page Rank level is progressively harder to reach. PageRank is believed to be calculated on a logarithmic scale.
  14. Google calculates pages PRs once every few months.
  15. Google tries to find pages that are both reputable and relevant.

Google Blackle the Energy Saving Search

Google is testing out black background to save energy in this period of global warming according to Mark Ontkush.

Google claims logging on to Blackle will save 750 MegaWatt of energy because the screen is predominantly black. "Image displayed is primarily a function of the user's color settings and desktop graphics, as well as the color and size of open application windows; a given monitor requires more power to display a white (or light) screen than a black (or dark) screen,” says Google.
