Google Laser - Google New Logo

Have you seen the Google Search Engine Logo today. You might have seen it but yet not noticed it, yes it has been changed likewise Google always does so. Everytime when there is some special cause or events like Christmas, New Year, Mother's Day, Earth Day or many other Google and other search engine always change their Logo's.

This new logo is "Google First Laser Invention Logo"

What encouraged me & given thought to publish this post is something unique about this LOGO. Previously whenever Google has changed their logo it was always inline with there basic brand identity logo like below:-

Now if you compare it with all other Google Logo's till time they sticked to the above pattern. But this time they came up with "Google Laser Logo" which rejuvenate their Brand.

Have a look at it:-

Isn't it very different from previous Logo's. If google ask me to share my view's I would say it is not that much pleasing & remarkable in comparison to previous ones.

I tried to figure out Google's Message which they might want to convey by displaying this logo. It will be Google is like "Laser Rays" which is intense, coherent, directional and very pure to penetrate and can rule any Industry.

Or Google Search Engine is like that concentrates user search beheaviour into an intense, narrow results by using their Algorithm used to destroy other search engines & un-ehtical results.

But hey wait.....Does Google care for my view's :-)

Article Submitter Review

While article submission isn't anything shockingly new to the world of SEO, many people STILL don't do it... and for good reason. It takes so incredibly long to do manually.

I'll admit, I had tried article submission at one point, but after I finally found a few article directories to submit my articles to, and then after manually copying and pasting my information into the required text boxes on each submission site, I quickly realized that my time could be better spent doing something else.

Then I came across a free program created by Brad Callen and Bryxen Software, Inc. that allows you to automatically submit your articles to hundreds of article directories with a few mouse clicks. Basically all I had to do was input my article criteria into the software, ONCE! Then, the program would automatically fill in all of the required data at each of the submission websites. Pretty incredible if you ask me.

The only part I didn't understand was why the program is free...but I can't argue with that I suppose.

The software currently contains around 700 article directories, all free to submit your articles to. It is the most straightforward program that we've come across, in that all you need to do is:

1. Input your article details (i.e. title, article body, bio, etc.) into the software

2.Click on the directory you want to submit to

And then the program will automatically fill in your article details. Then, you simply click the submit button and your article is instantly submitted to the directory. Then, you can move to the next directory, go through the list, and by the time you're finished you'll have roughly 700 one way links pointing to your website.

I can't think of an easier way to get links. Of course, if you're going to get links this quickly, it's important to submit different variations of your articles, to make things look more natural to the search engines.

You can do this very easily via Article Submitter when you create your project in the beginning.

The software is constantly being updated and their is an incredible community of users established that all work together to make the software better and better, so you know you're getting great value for the money.
