Google Wave : The future of communication

Finally unveiled after years of development under the codename “Walkabout,” Google Wave combines popular features from across the web — feeds, shared documents, photo galleries, etc. — to redefine online communication. At least that’s the goal. Its creators, Lars and Jens Rasmussen (the braintrust behind Google Maps), even say they set out to break down traditional modes of communication — email and instant messaging — to find a system more in sync with how web users prefer to talk today. The result looks promising.

At a basic level, Wave is part chat room, part collaborative document. You and your friends belong to a page that any of you can add information to, and it will show up for everyone in real time. And this information comes in many different forms: images, videos, links, comments, event invitations, polls, blog entries, and the like. It’s an ongoing conversation — with rich content.

Which AdSense Format Size Earn More Money?

AdSense publishers can earn most income from three types of ad formats. This formats are very familiar for expert web masters. Wider formats are successful because the ads are compact, easy to read and are complementary to the content. The top three Google AdSense formats are:
  • Large Rectangle (336 x 280)
  • Medium rectangle(300×250)
  • Wide Skyscraper (160 x 600)
Another successful format is the 468×15 horizontal ad links, that can be placed under your navigation bar.

Microsoft launches new search engine Bing.com

The new four-letter word in your life is Bing. Whether you'll bother to try it or not, Microsoft has great hopes for it. Bing is the latest iteration of Microsoft's search engine, and it's innovative enough for Microsoft to try to rebrand what used to be called Live Search and spend around $80-$100m on promotion.

Bing was announced today by Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer at D7, the conference run by the Wall Street Journal's technology site, All Things Digital. Microsoft's staff have been using it for many months under a different name: Kumo.

It will be available to American users next Wednesday, 3 June, and UK users should have access to a beta version.

The new search engine has a number of innovative features, the main one being what Microsoft calls the Explorer pane on the left hand side. When you search for things, the Explorer pane finds results for related searches. This should be a big help for less experienced searches who aren't adept at querying search engines.

Effective adsense layout or positioning for maximum clicks

Placing the Ads in the places with greater visibility and maximum probability of clicking, yields best results. See the images below with colored blocks which kind of tell us that those are the areas with maximum visibility and higher chances of getting clicked. Placing your AdSense in the areas as per the images below may increase the chances of your visitors clicking on the Ads but remember there are other things also which must be kept in mind to increase the click ratio, such as color blending of Ads, keywords in content, number of impressions, visits etc,. And since every website is different, you may experiment and determine the best Ad position yourself.

Layout #1. Ad positioning for a web site with header[top], footer[bottom], navigation bar[left], content in the middle. Good for either static or dynamic content on the page.

AdSense Optimization Layout #1

Layout #2. Ad positioning for website with lengthy article/content on the page. People when scroll down after reading the article will see an Ad and chances of clicking it to navigate out of the page is quite high.

AdSense Optimization Layout #2

Layout #3. Another way of placing Ad in the site with the skyscrapper placed on left. It more or less looks will like a navigation bar with links, right blending of colors increases click rate.

AdSense Optimization Layout #3

Layout #4. Placing the Ad Link unit on left hand side inside the navigation bar makes it look like a part of navigation and provides different topics on which people can click on. On the right and in the content, placing a square 125×125 or 200×200 ad format layout is always good. It increases the chances of someone clicking on it if it also serves image Ads.

AdSense Optimization Layout #4

Layout #5. Same as above but placing the square Ad in the navigation bar on the right hand side.

AdSense Optimization Layout #5

Layout #6. Same as #4 but with the square Ad unit in the content is placed on left. If you blend it well with the site color, you will see an immediate increase in the click rate.

AdSense Optimization Layout #6

Layout #7. One of the unusual site designs. I have seen it on a couple of websites which are highly successful with Ads. Of course, you can replace the skyscrapper on right with small units of AdSense or Ad units of any other Ad programs.

AdSense Optimization Layout #7

Layout #8. For a site with no footer, place a wide Ad unit as a footer. An Ad Links unit can be placed in the right or left navigation bar.

AdSense Optimization Layout #8

Please do focus on your content too! Your AdSense optimization will be more successful with more number of people visiting your site.

'world's oldest blogger' dies


A Spanish grandmother who became an Internet sensation after dubbing herself the "world's oldest blogger" has died at 97.

Maria Amelia Lopez, who died Wednesday, began blogging from her home in Galicia two years ago, winning a raft of fans with her eclectic mix of commentary and nostalgia infused with a sharp wit.

She was introduced to the Internet when her grandson set up the blog as a gift to mark her 95th birthday.

It proved a great escape, Lopez later writing: "On December 23rd 2006, my grandson gave me a present, this blog when I was 95 years old ... and my life changed ... now, I can communicate and interact with the world."

She wrote and video blogged about her experiences opposing Franco's regime, modern politics -- covering topics ranging from the Basque separatist threat to Iran's nuclear ambitions -- and poignantly discussed what it was like to grow old.

Her fame even saw Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero drop in for a chat. Visit Maria Amelia Lopez's blog

In one of her last postings in February she said: "When I'm on the Internet, I forget about my illness. The distraction is good for you -- being able to communicate with people. It wakes up the brain, and gives you great strength."

Her family left a posthumous post, thanking readers for their support.

"[There were] 880 days when her blog made her happy... the support she needed to enjoy her last days of life," they wrote.

"When somebody leaves after 97 years, living with joy from the beginning to the end, we can't be sad.

"Wherever you are, grandmother, you will read these comments, all of them without doubt. She will laugh at some, will learn with others, she might get annoyed at the specific 'language' used in some ... but she will be happy reading all of them."

Sell blogs on Amazon Kindle


Bloggers have something more than the reader community to rejoice, thanks to Amazon. Close on the heels of rolling out large-format electronic reading device Kindle DX, Amazon.com has now rolled out its new Kindle Publishing for Blogs, a self-publishing service that facilitates the sale of blog subscriptions through the Kindle Store.

The new feature is delivered automatically throughout the day over Kindle's wireless connection. According to Information Week, the posts can can be read with or without a wireless connection as they are downloaded completely, rather than as the excerpts often made available through RSS feeds. Amazon, however, has not made it clear whether the updates would be frequent.

The report added that Amazon would keeps 70 per cent of the monthly blog subscription fee and pay 30 per cent to the blog author.

It would also not allow bloggers to decide the price at which they wish to sell their blog subscriptions. According to Amazon.com, it reserves the right to determine the sale price based on what it deems is a fair value for customers. It would also provide no information on how it would arrive at the fair value. It has currently priced blogs between 99 cents and $1.99 a month.

Further, it has also made it particularly clear that it would not allow bloggers offer subscriptions for free. However, it has exempted itself from that rule.

My Comment: While the offerings are descent and produced link looks professional, I use this service as secondary for the file sharing due to the limitations and lack of incentives. My primary files sharing host is Ziddu, primarily because of the ability to generate additional income through sharing the downloaded files. For me, it is not so significant, but why not gather some extra cents, whenever possible?

39 Best Freeware Blog Desktop Publishing Utilities

As I mentioned in my previous post, many bloggers look forward on using stand-alone desktop applications to prepare their blog post before publishing them. WriteToMyBlog provides free web-based solution, but it has several drawbacks:
  1. You need Internet connection when you work with the site.
  2. You depend entirely on the site functionality and operation speed.
  3. You have to provide your login data to get connected to your publishing platform, which many users do not feel comfortable to do.
Desktop Blog publishing utilities, while having their own problems, successfully bypass the noted limitations. You can work offline on your article generation and formatting, and publish it as soon as it is ready. That saves valuable online time and traffic, if your data plan is not unlimited.


In the Rating list, I am going to present today, I listed free software assisting bloggers in preparation, formatting, and submission the posts to their hosting sites with minimum amount of time and best outcomes. Presented utilities are to help those using free blogging platforms like Blogger and Wordpress, and those who prefer maintaining their Blog on the independent Web Site using server-based scripts.


I presented this list on this blog for the first time in January 2008, when there were just 14 utilities included. As of today, there are already 39 free computer programs, scripts, and plug-ins on the list. Feel free to review the collection, input your rating and experience, and even add some items that might be currently missing from consideration.

Free or less expensive Royalty Free Photo, Stock Photo & Illustration Sources

bikeTake your own photos and jazz them up using a free service like Picnik.com for images you know you can use anyway you want!

deviantArt.com is a huge community of designers and art enthusiasts who regularly post their creations. You can find just about anything - photos, textures, backgrounds, illustrations, fonts and more - some are free, some require payment.

Flickr.com is one of the largest collection of user generated photography on the web. You can literally find anything on Flickr. The key to using Flickr images is understanding the various usage terms. Leah at Working Solo wrote a great, easy to understand post on how to use Flickr images.

Freedigitalphotos.net offers images that are free for web use or can be purchased if you need the high resolution version. No registration is required and you can sell your own images as well.

Imageafter.com is not the most intuitive site to navigate, but it does have more than 21,000 free photos and textures for personal or commercial use.

Imagechef.com is one of my favorite places to get free, fun, one of a kind images for your blog posts. Start with one of a huge variety of basic images, add your own words and phrases, and end up with an image that can easily convey 1,000 words.

Morguefile.com serves as the afterlife for a large volume of free high resolution digital stock photographs and reference images for either corporate or public use. Think of it as digital photography heaven and rather than destroying what they don’t use, many photographers submit their “leftovers” to Morguefile for others to use. Individual images have different usage requirements, so please read everything before using.

Picapp.com is a great source of free editorial and news images. Ideally, it is for bloggers but their images can be used in other media. Now that Picapp.com has a Wordpress plugin, adding news quality images to your post doesn’t get any easier than this.

Photogen.com contains free photos for personal or commercial use. You do have to register in order to download, but you may also upload your own photos for others to use (but you are not compensated).

Stockvault.net is a lot like Freedigitalphotos.net in the sense that the images are free for download, no registration is required and you can share your photos, too.

Stockxchng (aka sxc.hu)offers a large selection of free stock photos and some illustrations. Terms of use request you give them credit as the image source. As a part of the Jupiterimages.com group, Stockxchng also offers premium images.

VERY INEXPENSIVE IMAGE SOURCES

giftBigstockphoto.com is a relatively new service from my perspective having just recently found it. Their inventory of more than 2 million images is certainly a good place to start when looking for art. Like many of the other sources in this category, you purchase credits in blocks (roughly $2 per credit) and images run anywhere from 1-6 credits depending on their size.

Dreamstime.com has an inventory of over 4 million images ranging from free to $5 or so. If you buy credits in bulk, they can be as low as 20 cents an image. If you sell your own images the payout is between 50% and 80%. New photos are being added constantly - there are already photos from the Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl Parade from 2009. The site is also available in a choice of languages.

Fotalia offer access to more than 4 million images, vectors and video via individual purchase ($1-$5 each) or via subscription. Very similar to many services in this category, Fotalia allows you to upload your own images for sale and has a community aspect.

sgpiStockphoto.com is one of the sites I use most. Very high quality images and a huge selection make iStockphoto my first choice when looking for photos, vector illustrations, flash, video or audio files for projects. Most images run $1-5 and you buy credits in blocks. You can submit your own images for sale and they have a very active community of artists, designers and marketing pros. Get free images with the Free Image of the Week featured at iStockphoto, too. I usually download these whether I think I will need them or not - because you just never know when they might come in handy.

Stockxpert.com is very similar to iStockphoto in that it carries some of the most reasonably priced, highest quality royalty-free stock images in the $1-10 range. It has a fantastic selection of photos, animation, and illustrations. You may sell your own images, too.

Vecteezy.com specializes in free to inexpensive user submitted vector graphics. While the collection is much smaller than most I have referenced, the quality is pretty good. Sister sites include Flasheezy (Flash files for download) and Brusheezy (Photoshop brushes).

INEXPENSIVE SUBSCRIPTION ONLY SERVICES

snowmanAnimationFactory.com - need to dress up those boring PowerPoint presentations? AnimationFactory has more than 500,000 animated clip art (use sparingly), PowerPoint templates, backgrounds and videos. Subscriptions run from $60-200 per year and give you access to unlimited downloads. (Bonus - use this link for 25% off your subscription)

Clipart.com has more than 10 million pieces of royalty-free clip art, photos, vinyl-ready images, Web graphics, illustrations, fonts and sounds available via subscription. Subscription rates are for one week up to one year.

Designious.com is not quite as big as many of the others in this list but they do have some great designs - especially if your audience is in the 15-30 range. You can search for royalty-free stock vectors, vector illustrations and t-shirt designs. Buy stock vectors one by one or have access to all of them via subscription.

iCLIPART.com has millions of downloadable royalty-free clipart images, photos, objects, web graphics, sounds and fonts by subscription. Their images tend to be more on the whimsical side. A monthly subscription is $19.95, however right now you can get the whole year for $29.95 - which is a great deal if this is the type of art you find yourself looking for on a regular basis (perfect for bloggers, teachers, and such)
