Gmail HomePage Makeover: New Gmail Frontpage Interface rolled out on 23rd October, 2013

If you visited the Gmail log-in page recently or on today, you may have noticed that Gmail Front Page looked a bit different. Actually Google has rolled out their new Gmail HomePage interface which they were testing from last few months to comprehend their new theme tag line "One account. All of Google"

Finally they rolled it out today and the old Gmail interface is gone forever. I saw it just now a few minutes ago and decided to blog about Gmail HomePage Makeover for this year.

Twitter Down since 1:40 AM (IST) as on 04th June, 2013 - Twitter.com Not Available for some user's.


To all Tweeple it's that Twitter has encountered some technical problems and there server's are down at the moment. As always I was tweeting and suddenly saw Twitter displaying below message when I tried to update my twitter feed. I thought it might something wrong from my end. Did random check of some other twitter profile's and they were also displaying the same message "Something is technically wrong"

It's started by 1:40 AM (IST) on 04th July, 2013 and still it showing down.
To be double assured I checked it at downforeveryoneorjustme.com too, below is screenshot which confirms it's down.


So you all Tweeple who are clueless of what's went wrong don't worry. It's something wrong from their end. Between I just browsed through Official Twitter Status http://status.twitter.com/post/52079734757/twitter-site-issue and they had confirmed - "Some users may be experiencing issues accessing Twitter. Our engineers are currently working to resolve the issue."

Moving forward, Zagat will be a cornerstone of our local offering—delighting people with their impressive array of reviews, ratings and insights, while enabling people everywhere to find extraordinary (and ordinary) experiences around the corner and around the world.


With Zagat, we gain a world-class team that has more experience in consumer based-surveys, recommendations and reviews than anyone else in the industry. Founded by Tim and Nina Zagat more than 32 years ago, Zagat has established a trusted and well-loved brand the world over, operating in 13 categories and more than 100 cities. The Zagats have demonstrated their ability to innovate and to do so with tremendous insight. Their surveys may be one of the earliest forms of UGC (user-generated content)—gathering restaurant recommendations from friends, computing and distributing ratings before the Internet as we know it today even existed. 


Their iconic pocket-sized guides with paragraphs summarizing and “snippeting” sentiment were “mobile” before “mobile” involved electronics. Today, Zagat provides people with a democratized, authentic and comprehensive view of where to eat, drink, stay, shop and play worldwide based on millions of reviews and ratings.


For all of these reasons, I'm incredibly excited to collaborate with Zagat to bring the power of Google search and Google Maps to their products and users, and to bring their innovation, trusted reputation and wealth of experience to our users."

Google Celebrating Jorge Luis Borges 112th Birthday - Google Logo

Google Celebrating 112th Birthday of Jorge Luis Borges as on 24th August, 2011 as Google Doodle Logo at their home page.

Jorge Luis Borges was born in an educated middle-class family in August 1899. Borges's 1929 book Cuaderno San Martín includes the poem "Isidoro Acevedo," commemorating his grandfather, Isidoro de Acevedo Laprida, a soldier of the Buenos Aires Army. A descendant of the Argentine lawyer and politician Francisco Narciso de Laprida, Acevedo fought in the battles of Cepeda in 1859, Pavón in 1861, and Los Corrales in 1880. Isidoro de Acevedo Laprida died of pulmonary congestion in the house where his grandson Jorge Luis Borges was born. Borges grew up hearing about the faded family glory. On the other side, Borges's father, Jorge Guillermo Borges Haslam, was part Spanish, part Portuguese, and half English, also the son of a colonel. Borges Haslam, whose mother was English, grew up speaking English at home, and took his own family frequently to Europe. England and English pervaded the family home.

Google Sitelinks Update - New Google Interface for WebSite Sitelinks at Google

It's morning and I guess not many of power Google user's has noticed that Google rolled out a new Sitelink features which I just now observed. Also I am not sure does it being rolled out to all Google data-center's or as always Google trying out at few and later make it universal. To confirm this new Google Sitelink's feature I checked with Official Google Blog & Official Google Webmaster Central Blog, but there's no news yet in this regard. (Update 0n 08/16/2011: Official Google Blog: The evolution of sitelinks: expanded and improved)

Espn.com - Google Sitelinks

Well you must have noticed earlier for Sitelinks Google only show's few important internal webpages (also known as Sitelinks) at organic SERP's if a user search for any Domain at Google(www.afzalkhan.org) name with or without domain extension (Afzalkhan.org or Simply Domain Name as AfzalKhan) as shown at image-1(Espn.com Google Sitelinks) with Old Sitelinks pattern.

What's New now with Google Sitelinks

Google is now showing website's sitelinks with Title (H1 tag in some cases), meta description and the landing page URL as shown in image-2 (Afzalkhan.org Google Sitelinks) which were missing at the old sitelinks preview (Google used to show only Anchor Text hyperlinked)

Afzalkhan.org Google sitelinks - New Preview

What will its affect on Organic Traffic? - While it's still early to judge its impact but I noticed significant increase in Google traffic for my site since yesterday, the increase in Google Organic traffic is almost 20-30% comparing my daily blog traffic. It's a welcome change from my site being a SEO along with many other changes due from Google including infinite scrolling at SERP's for organic searches too like Google Image Searches. I've read on many forum's Google is experimenting & testing out loads of new feature's since after launching Google +1 which they will merge all together to offer a better user experience.

Finger's crossed expecting few more changes in next coming days which might affect Search Engine Optimization strategies, website organic rankings & traffic.

Search Out Loud with Voice Search



About Google Voice Search
Google Voice Search is a tool from Google Labs that allowed someone to use their phone to make a Google query. After the user called (650) 623-6706, the number of Google Voice's search system, they would wait for the words Say your Search Keywords and then say the keywords. Next, they would either wait to have the page updated, or click on a link to bring up the search page the user requested. At the moment, both the demo of this service and the page have been shut down. Since the introduction of the service, products from Google, such as GOOG-411, Google Maps and Google Mobile App, have been developed to use speech recognition technology in various ways!

Along with Voice Search you can also do a Search by Image at Google.com
