Digital India: A Revolution for Evolution

on Saturday 30 January 2016

The Government of India has embarked on an ambitious journey of connecting whole of India on a digital platform. A complex initiative that is bound to transcend the traditional ‘Hiccups’ and lead India into a more digitally empowered society. It is a nine-pillar program with clear vision that promises to digitize each citizen of India in the coming times. The e-governance which we keep on listening will become a reality which would in turn smoother the tedious government processes and we will get rid of long queues and unending delays.

This is one of the key aspects of this initiative by which many problems are bound to solve within a click of a button. This is a very first effort by the government of India to communicate with its own citizens digital communication is the simplest and the easiest form of communication.

In India it has always been a challenge to communicate freely with the government so via this initiative other than communicating government is planning for a larger scale of integration where rural and urban barriers will disappear. The stark reality is that our rural population is still untouched by the pace at which India is growing so this scheme will serve as an escalator where everyone is at a same pace. Now the time has come to gather such a pace and once gathered no one can stop India to become a superpower.

Yes! you are reading it right SUPERPOWER!

Google Algorithm Update 2016 - Core Search Ranking Update

on Wednesday 13 January 2016

The recent confirmation given by Google on the adoption of the panda algorithm as a part of Google's core ranking algorithm have flustered us.There are serious doubts arising out of the dubious statement issued by Google on twitter that although Panda is incorporated in the core algorithm but it is not real time.The exact connotation is still vague.As of now we just can take the statement as it is..

Jennifer Slegg posted a Panda guide that was vetted by Google's PR team,and Part of that included a statement that said Panda is now part of Google's core ranking algorithm. Here is that statement:

Panda is an algorithm thats applied to sites overall and has become one of our core ranking signals. It measures the quality of a site, which you can read more about in our guidelines. Panda allows Google to take quality into account and adjust ranking accordingly.

Google Confirms: Core Search Ranking Update Took Place But Not Penguin Related

On twitter Google have confirmed on Friday that a core ranking algorithm update, it was expected that most awaited penguin update but the signs did not pointing to penguin.It is more related with panda or core search. You may check your ranking where you can see the impact, However we can term this as a core update which a part of quality assessment.

Gary Illyes from Google confirmed the authenticity of this quote.

Furthermore: Just to be clear, Gary Illyes from Google updated us on Twitter  saying the Panda Core update stuff here is not real time.
