    Google Search Conference: My Learnings

    Today I went to the Google Search Conference held at Trident Hotel, Chennai. Here are a few of my learnings/highlights from the event – Google looks at more than 200 factors while ranking a webpage for a search query; page rank is just one of them. In 2017 alone Google did more than 2,70,000 experiments with Search and they implemented less than 2500 changes in their algorithms. Everyday, around 15% of the searches are for new keywords. Loading Speed and SSL (https) are important factors for better search result positioning. They suggest we use Structured Data Markup (Schema.org is fine, but Google’s Structured data is preferred) for giving additional information…

    Today I went to the ‘Next Big Idea Contest 2018‘ Chennai-launch event at Atworks Co-working campus, Guindy.

    My Experience at our First Exhibition

    After attending many exhibitions as a visitor, I had always wanted to participate in one as an exhibitor. That opportunity finally arrived yesterday with our participation in this one-day expo. Planning and preparation took a considerable amount of time. While Ramya had to make the fashion jewellery products, I had to learn and make videos for demonstration. I decided to debut a new service – 3D Photo Slideshows at this expo, hence the need for that learning. We had to design and order banners & visiting cards. We had to keep visitor diaries and bill books. We had to plan for extra table & chairs. Besides, we bought a photography…

    Google for Tamil 2.0 Blogger/Publisher Meet, Chennai

    Today I went to the Google for Tamil 2.0 Blogger/Online Publisher meet at Zone by the Park, Chennai. This event was organised by Google & IndiBlogger. I guess more than 100 people came today from various parts of Tamil Nadu. Google says that the amount of English content on the Internet is around 55% currently, and the amount of content in Indian languages (including Tamil, Hindi, etc.) is less than 0.1%! With the Internet revolution created by Jio, demand for local language content, especially on mobiles, is growing much faster than content in English – it seems. So they feel there is an opportunity for Tamil publishers, writers, and bloggers…

    Selfie Inside Rolls Royce Phantom :)

    I know all of you are already jealous reading the title. So, in your own interest, please exercise extreme caution before deciding to proceed 😛 After all, the new Rolls Royce Phantom costs 11.5 Crores (ex-showroom) in India and it is among the most expensive cars in the world. Taking a selfie inside such a car is a privilege – don’t you agree? We were invited to cover the Rolls Royce Phantom unveiling/launch ceremony at Chennai (Taj Coromandel) today and we took full advantage of it. Before you see the selfie, have a look at the Rolls Royce Phantom Launch event summary video (Just 30s). You’ll get a good glimpse…
