ORKUT – WITH A NEW LOOK NOW


Hmmmm….Well….so we have another post on orkut …Even if my brain  refrains myself from posting anymore posts on orkut ,my finger just remains obstinate and types the word orkut again and again and again.Sorry guys can’t help it..so bear with me , read the last one unless i come up with another crap on orkut..

Morning i just logged on to my account in orkut and fount an pic on the lower left side of the home page. Out of curiousity i clicked that ,It took me to orkut blog.. DAMN !!! the old firefox sux ..it takes eternity to open a blog in blogspot.com(dont know why).. finally i had to change to Internet explorer..Finally i managed to open the page and was half shocked and half elated to see a post “Coming Soon: A New Look!”.

Yes the orkut has redesigned its looks. and  beleive me it rocks .Atleast for lethargic people like me who have already lost intrest in orkut the redesign will be like energy booster .

For the past two months or so orkut has been updating it lot of features ,first the orkut blog which is an interesting platform for people to know whats going on orkut.and ofcourse without that this post would be possible 😛 . Then they added multimedia to the scraps allowing people  to send pics ,audio and even videos.Andnow the grand one,changing the look of it will bring a new cheer in the users.

 And ofcourse it may change my mind to use orkut a few more days 🙂

check out the new look

Google,yahoo,gahooyoogle and now polycola -an innovative search engine!!


Some of u must have read my post on gahooyoogle a search engine which shows u the results for a searched item from both yahoo and google juxtaposed together.

The creater arbel hakopian has made another innovation in the search engine and designed polycola . Infact i was oblivious abt this site one of my visitor made me aware of this site.

This search engine is similar to the gahooyoogle in the way that it too shows results from two search engines together so that u can have a comparitive approch ,but what makes it different and indeed more interesting is the fact that u can get results from two search engines of ur choice like Google , Yahoo , Ask , Altavista , Dogpile , AOL and Live ..

sounds pretty cool to me..check out the screen shots when i tried.

how to increase traffic ( visitors ) to ur blog??


Well, if anyone of u are reading this to know something abt road trafiic ,then u are wrong,this has nothing to with it. here i am concerned abt the blog traffic..

Actually i wonder sometimes why people (including me) are so obsessed with the amount of traffic their sites and blogs gets .well, the most obvious reason that comes to my mind is that the humans are always fascinated by numbers and according to a research conducted the craze for more is just insatiable..

This may sound weird but its true. most people would deny it but their conscience knows ..anyways exceptions are always there but they are never examples…to be frank i was trying to find out ways of improving my traffic ,which is not that overwhelming and found some interesting info ,perhaps, i should say some facts….

the 10 most searched items on net are

1) Paris Hilton 2) Google 3) Yahoo 4) Ebay 5) Eminem 6) Britney Spears 7) map quest 8) Tsunami 9) Girls 10) American Idol

 

so any one really in need of more traffic can try using these keywords in ur blog ..

You can use keyword trackers for finding keywords that are searched most in net..

and u can also try submitting ur blogs in the major search engines through various free search engine submitter software available.

Try indexing your web pages to Google webmasters tools , Bing or Yahoo explorer.

You can share your posts through networking sites like Orkut, Twitter or submit them to sites like DIGG

Update Your blog regularly. and most important of all write the content that people would be eager to read.
