How Search Works

How useful do you think to know how Google search works? I believe it is essential if you want your site or site of your friend or site of your church/organization prosper and bring the fruit.

Let’s say you have a website that gives information about event that you are leading and you want as more people as possible to know about this event and subscribe to it. You made a questionnaire about source of knowledge about event among later visitors and found out that only 10% has come to your event via website,  what a disaster! you had only 10 people registered to event  and only 1 got to know about it through the website! You start to look at site’s statistics and find that only 5-10 people visiting your site during a day, there are definitely more people that you come across on daily basis then your site has visitors! Why is that so? because major source of all visitors is search engine. Search engine indexing your pages and returns results while person looks for words related to your event theme. But for some reason when someone makes search in Google, your event’s promotion appears on the page number 24 (for example) Regular user of internet would NEVER go that far, people look through 10 pages at max, the rest are lost for their attention.

eBay Inc. To Ask eBay Users To Change Passwords

ebaylogo_NEW_2_jpg_280x280_crop_q95eBay Inc. (Nasdaq: EBAY) said beginning later today it will be asking eBay users to change their passwords because of a cyberattack that compromised a database containing encrypted passwords and other non-financial data. After conducting extensive tests on its networks, the company said it has no evidence of the compromise resulting in unauthorized activity for eBay users, and no evidence of any unauthorized access to financial or credit card information, which is stored separately in encrypted formats. However, changing passwords is a best practice and will help enhance security for eBay users.

Snowden’s computer

tails_logo-7Information here can be used by anyone who wants to hide his presence from other’s eyes. There are plenty of potential users: politicians, missionaries, people who leave in “closed countries” with restrictions to visit certain sites.  Here is just one example.

When NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden first emailed Glenn Greenwald, he insisted on using email encryption software called PGP for all communications. But this month, we learned that Snowden used another technology to keep his communications out of the NSA’s prying eyes. It’s called Tails. And naturally, nobody knows exactly who created it.
