Google wipes out all .CO.CC domains, including www.co.cc itself


Too bad for .CO.CC owners, specially those who are using it as their main domain. Google recently wiped out all .CO.CC domains from its search index. Why? Because users of .CO.CC abused it. A lot of .CO.CC blogs and websites contain nothing but 100% spam, re-posted content, aggregated articles, and nothing but a bunch of gibberish data.

Google PR Update: June 27, 2011

The Google PageRank or PR update this 27th day of June 2011 made a lot of people happy, but made a whole lot more people sad. Why? Because a lot gained a PageRank increase, but a whole lot more was PR slapped. Those who are affected negatively by the recent Panda 2.2 Google algorithm update are also affected negatively in the recent PR update.

Based on my observation and analysis, high PR blogs that are now PR 0 are negatively affected by the recent Panda update. But blogs that suffered a decrease in PR by -2 or -3, are not seriously affected by the recent Panda algorithm.

Google’s “Define:” function is not working anymore or just a glitch?

I wonder why the define: function that I really love to use in Google.com is not working anymore. I tried to define several words since last week, and I thought it’s just a glitch or a bug, but it seems to be removed. I’ve read in the Google web forums that I’m not the only one who’s experiencing it.

There’s another thread here that says it’s just a glitch and it’s properly working. A Google employee even replied to that thread and confirms that the define: function is still working.

Have you tried to define a word and it’s not working? Then you’re also experiencing this weird bug that Google hasn’t completely fixed it.

I hope the define function will not be removed as it’s really useful. As of the moment, If you want to define a work, you can go to google.com/dictionary instead.

But… if you’re not experiencing this bug, then you’re probably lost and you shouldn’t be reading this post.

10-Digit Message in Adsense Payout via Western Union

Have you ever wondered what is the 10-digit number in the message of the recent Google Adsense payout via Western Union? I just claimed my March 2011 payout today and I noticed a message from Google Adsense containing a 10-digit number. I also asked my fellow Adsense publisher if their Western Union printout has a 10-digit message, and they said… YES!

I searched about it in Google and found nothing. I searched about it in the Adsense forums, and I found nothing.

Is this something? Or just nothing? If you know what it is, kindly share it in the comment field below.

Adsense Payment in Progress: April 30, 2011

It’s already the last day of the month and the Adsense payment is still in progress. 3 hours from now, it’s already the 1st day of May 2011. I wonder what’s the main cause of this delay. Is it the Royal Wedding? or… something else? I hope they will issue the payment tomorrow so that I can pay my debts.

Will update this post again if the payment is already issued. I hope it will be issued today or tomorrow. This is the most delayed Adsense payment I’ve encountered so far!
