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.

Minecraft to reality?


My boys keep playing Minecraft every theír free minute, but neither them nor myself knew about this real world project where serious building projects are done in Minecraft to be tested before actual construction works. Check this up!

“Block by Block” is an innovative partnership between the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat), the UN agency promoting sustainable towns and cities, and Mojang, the makers of Minecraft.Block by Block involves young people in the planning of urban public spaces. Minecraft has turned out to be the perfect tool to facilitate this process. The four-year partnership will support UN-Habitat’s Sustainable Urban Development Network to upgrade 300 public spaces by 2016. The first pilot project in Kibera, one of Nairobi’s informal settlements is already underway.More information about UN-Habitat can be found on www.unhabitat.org.

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.
