Gmail doesn’t recognize dots as characters within usernames of Gmail!!

Gmail doesn’t recognize dots as characters within usernames of GmailYes its true, Google is no longer treating the dots as characters (or simply not even considering it!!). I just found this in Gmail is as mistake; I simply typed my username by missing the one dot in it. But it let me login. I was really shocked and tried mail to me by removing all the dots in username. But I received the email immediately. So I started researched on this.

In fact Google admitted this (Not as bug!!), they just telling that Google will ignore all dots in emails. For more info please read http://support.google.com/mail/bin/answer.py?hl=en&ctx=mail&answer=10313

Google always recommends using separate analytical IDs and script for different domains. That is the best solution as we can track total stats of each domain properly. But sometimes we may face some scenarios where you need to track the stats of all domains.

But the Google Analytics documents have no mention on this. But there are ways to implement this.

The scenario’s where we need cross domain or multiple domains are,

  • We need summarized report on site stats of all domains
  • Business need a boosted or common report
  • Need a common goal analysis for all cross domains.

Twitter Location Feature

Twitter is now coming with new feature called Location. But comes with a bug. It won’t let you add Chennai, as auto complete fails pop out Chennai. Also it is not letting me add new location too.Then what is the use of feature.

@Twitter Guys: Make it autocomplete with editable. Copy the same from Facebook, as you copied the location concept from them..

But I loved the feature, even though its is copy cat.

Major challenges faced by the SEO teams today

From the day one I start heard about the concept of SEO, I was really curious about it. Initially I thought it was small area, but my after studying basic concepts I started realizing the REAL depth of the SEO. It is like ocean.

After researching on little on SEO realized it not just back links building and directory submission, it’s basically has some ethics defined by the god of search
http://google.com.

With my experience with SEO teams and few SEO Projects, am listing the major challenges faced by the SEO teams as,

  • No understanding of what exactly SEO is.
  • Bad understanding of Google Search Algorithm.
  • Creation of nonsense keywords, just to show that we are in the top of Google rank.
  • Bad understanding of customer need.
  • Bad definition of HTML page just for SEO.
  • Violation of Basic ethics.
  • Believing that Just Link building is SEO.
  • No conversion to real business.
  • No proper tools to Analysis the real stats
  • No understanding of what good rank and Alexa rank represents.
  • Usage of Link Blast tools like Xrumer by you or by your competitor.
  • Improper use of Google Adwords.

I would like give details analysis on each of this on coming days. Please keep posted here.
