All About SEO on WordPress.com

SEO? Don’t worry about it, WordPress will take care of it!!!

The WordPress.com Blog

We get a lot of questions about SEO here on WordPress.com, and no wonder — you work hard on your site and want to get the word out! SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. SEO recommendations are intended to help your site rank higher and more accurately in search engines, like Google. Say you write a blog about sailboats. When someone Googles “sailboats,” how many pages of results do they have to scroll through before they see a link to your blog? The goal behind having good SEO is to increase your website’s SERP (Search Engine Results Page) ranking.

Ideally, you want your link to be on the first page of results. The best ways to accomplish this are:

  • consistently publish useful, original posts about sailboats; and
  • promote your blog in intelligent ways to people who are looking for information about your topic.

The more traffic your blog receives for sailboat-related searches, the…

Import-ant News for Google Reader Users

I was searching for a reader replacement and this is it. Thanks WordPress!!!

The WordPress.com Blog

The big news on the internet the last couple of days has been that seminal RSS reader Google Reader will be shutting down on July 1, 2013. Google Reader had lots of fans, including many of us here at Automattic, but it’s time to move on.

Speaking of moving on from Google Reader, did you know that you can import your subscriptions directly from Google Reader into the WordPress.com Reader? We launched the Reader about 18 months ago; it’s responsive to fit any size screen, you can like and reblog WordPress.com content without leaving the news stream, and if you run out of new posts to read, you can discover new content in the Recommended Blogs section.

To import your subscriptions, just visit the WordPress.com Reader import page; you’ll be reading your feeds in the WordPress.com Reader in three clicks or less, or your money back.

Google to pay $7 million for privacy violation

Google on Tuesday agreed to pay a group of states $7 million to settle complaints that its Street View cars violated people’s privacy.

The settlement with 37 states comes nearly three years after the company admitted to collecting information like passwords and e-mails from unencrypted Wi-Fi networks its cars were passing by. The Internet search giant that it will take steps to make sure the company does not tap into networks again in the future. As part of the settlement, Google has also agreed to destroy the personal data it collected. Source: CNN

This was a report on CNN telling us what we already knew but never said it out in the open hoping its false. Ironically, its true. Google has been fishing data and storing it.

Its not surprising that Google has been doing these kind of violations. Google admitted this only when it was probed. Its worth saying that Google could be storing even more illegal data that should not be stored. Google has all the sources for doing this, like web searches, You Tube, Picasa albums, android phones, chrome browser, you name it, Google is everywhere.

Our lives are dependant on Google and Google is dependant on us using its services to give it precious data it can use to earn money. Why are we so dependant on Google? Can we move on from Google? (I don’t have an answer yet)

Google is not the only entity in question, it can be Facebook, Microsoft and all other popular web companies could be doing this privacy violations as you read this!!!

All we can do is limit the information we share with the web in whatever manner possible. Share your thoughts

Google is phasing out support for older browsers.

In a change welcomed by everyone on the internet, Google is phasing out support for older browsers. Come August 1 only the current and prior major release of Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari will be supported.

Google’s blogpost:

Our plans to support modern browsers across Google Apps

For web applications to spring even farther ahead of traditional software, our teams need to make use of new capabilities available in modern browsers. For example, desktop notifications for Gmail and drag-and-drop file upload in Google Docs require advanced browsers that support HTML5. Older browsers just don’t have the chops to provide you with the same high-quality experience. Continue reading “Google is phasing out support for older browsers.”
