Also, Facebook in its race to bring down the company image, deleted Timelines’s official facebook profile page which is at https://facebook.com/timelines and redirected it back to an introduction page for facebook’s new users registration page, though, Facebook has restore back the page as the time of this publication.

As at of Friday’s afternoon, Timelines facebook page is doing fine until the sudden change.

Details of the law suit filled against Facebook in the U.S. District Court for Chicago are as follow:

“Facebook’s use of the term “Timeline,” and its redirection of Internet traffic from Timelines’ Facebook page to Facebook’s new “Timeline” offering, infringes on Timelines’ federally registered trademarks in that it causes confusion as to the source of the services offered to users of the Internet. Indeed, Facebook’s “Timeline” offering and its misdirection of users attempting to access Timelines’ offering is intended to prevent Internet users from accessing information about Timelines.com and to allow users to instead use Facebook’s “Timeline” offering.”

Wieldy Ways to Improve your Google Page Rank

How to Increase Google Page Rank…without faking it!

It’s very common that all webmasters want their websites get high page rank in Google. Getting high page rank for any website has great significance in online business.

So what is page rank actually?

It’s a numeric value that Google gives all websites in World Wide Web.

Once Googlebot crawls on your website the search engine algorithm determines the importance of your website and based upon that it gives a numeric value out of 10. It’s always better to have a page rank 5 than 3 and similarly 7 than 5.google page rank update

It means that as much as high the numeric value you get for your website it’s good for you to stay ahead in highly competitive online business industry. High page rank (PR) mainly depends upon the number of quality backlinks a website gets from other websites. This is the main concept that one should follow to improve PR value in Google. But besides that there are also few ideas that can help to improve your websites’ page rank as well:

Quality content

Your website should provide quality and unique content to visitors. Remember it should not be copied from any sources; otherwise Big G will simply avoid indexing your website in its huge database! Try to provide useful information that people can share using social bookmarking and networking websites.

Submit your website in useful places

It’s your one of the important steps of off page optimization process. Useful places can be various sources like good and resourceful web directories, open directory project (ODP) like Dmoz, quality niche directories etc. Apart from directories it’s very important to achieve backlinks for your website from niche areas that provide similar information and idea like you. Google greatly consider this issue. Suppose a website that keeps information on English literature and if that website can provide a link to another website having similar concept then such linking could be considered fantastic by Google. But here try to stay away from reciprocal linking as Google consider this as mutual understanding between two websites for getting benefits by search engines. For that case you might not get the reward. So better try to get one way or three way links. Quality articles, press release or links from quality blogs can also be helpful for your website to achieve high PR.

Getting back links from authority websites

Great idea! Isn’t it? 

This job is not so easy to perform. You have to work hard and maintain a constructive link building strategy for that. Use ethical ways only, no black hat! Your content should not seem any spammy look. Once you get some links from authority websites your chances to get high page rank would be higher.

Link baiting

Providing high quality and informative content can help you to get quality links from other sources. As many reference your website gets you know your chances to achieve high page rank would be high.

Avoid linking irrelevant websites

Google does not like a movie website link any sports website or vice-versa. Links should be provided to similar type of websites.

Try to get links from high PR websites

This is also very important. If you can convince a webmaster having a high PR website with similar concept that your website has, then you just did an excellent job! But of course the process is tough and can take time to complete.

You should try to list websites having high page rank and having similar concept with your website. Then you need to contact the respective websites’ webmasters and tell them why referring your website could be advantageous for both of your online business. Of course initially they can hesitate to provide a link to your website and may ask you to provide them link from your other websites or sometimes they can even ask you to write a quality review for their website. You can think about it also.

What are the other strategies you are using to increase your website page rank?

iPhone 5 Release Date Set – What to Expert

The iPhone 5 device is coming. This is no guesswork, no rumor, no fuzzy iPhone device photo taken by someone reportedly holding an iPhone 5 prototype. Apple has finally set a date for the official release of the device. For those that have been clamoring for iPhone 5 Release date, here is the answer to your requests.

What else different can we expect on October 4? Here below are the shortlist of what to expect in the newer iPhone iO5 device:

Overall Redesign for the device


Many people has been saying a lots of things about the exact outlook of the iPhone 5. Some people believed that the phone will look just the same previous version while others claimed that the later phone will look bigger than the formal version. Those are rumors! But the truth there is that the new phone will be quite different from the iPhone 4 device.

Some weeks ago, some group of people spotted the new iPhone cases that would be used to house the current iPhone devices or the doppelganger of the iPhone 5 device and started to share negative information about the phone. Many among the news carrier claimed that the phone could be thinner and wider than the previous iPhone 4 while others claimed that it is going to be like the same iOS 4.

SEE ALSO: iPhone 5 rumors – New iPhone 5 Could be Thiner and Wider

More Faster iPhone


Using a mobile phone that take lots of time to respond to request is not a good thing at all. There is a probability that Apple will likely increase the amount and quality of RAM—which always has a bigger impact on the performance of the previous versions of the phones made by Apple.

If Apple finally make these changes, it will  bring joy to the faces of most people that have been speculating about how the phone is going to work.

Better Screen and Nice Cameras


Google Android which is known to be the number one competitor to iPhone devices outshine the iPhone in the area of camera resolution and screen size department. But the new phone promises something better in that area too.

Nice Voice Recognition


Another cool thing that you can be expecting in the new iPhone 5 device is better voice recognition option. You don’t need to talk much before you get the right answer to what you are asking. Also, the normal voice output which many believed that could be the released feature with the device is not true at all. In order to avoid this, Apple did acquire a voice-based personal assistant service Siri lately last year, and the company hasn’t done much with the service yet since, at least not publicly. Expect good voice recognition.


4G or Not 4G?


The new iPhone 5 may or may not have 4G enable. The reason for this is because if Apple finally made the phone to be fourth generation internet connection enabled, the battery life of the phone will be at risks. If Apple does go for a 4G mobile phone, hence, it’s very sure that the iPhone 5 will be larger than the most respected pocketable iPhone 4 device. If at all, iPhone 5 will come out with 4G connection, Apple will needs an ample battery for a full day’s use for the phone. The truth is that, “Big batteries make for bigger phones”.

More Carriers option


Apple knows well how to play the competition game by taking action to acquire better service for CDMA and GSM services for its phone. There are more companies coming on the way before the phone finally launched.

“These are merely my predictions. The only thing I can guarantee is that Apple will have an event next week on Oct 4th at exactly 10 A.M.”

Firefox 7 Released – What Next?

Firefox 7.0 Released – What Next?

This is an uninteresting question to many people, the reason is because of the way Firefox browsers version is being replaced all the time. Firefox update is just like facebook update – they firefox team always make sure that they update as fast as possible without the thinking of users in mind. Some months ago when firefox released newer version of its product, many online bloggers experienced lots of downfall in term of ranks. Alexa rank slide down and many blogs that has high Alexa rank jumped back to the end of the queue due to the incompatibility of the new version with the Alexa toolbar addon and some other tools like that.

But, now that Firefox 7.0 is now available for download, what next should we expect from the firefox team? Maybe next month, another firefox 8, or Firefox 10! Anything can happen since mozilla firefox is no more offering the simple interface it uses to offered before again.

This time now, Firefox is making sure that Google chrome does not have anything to do in the internet browsers business but, little do they understand that frequent changes do piss people off. And that alone can be the reason for people to shift to the other side and test out the competitor’s offer. Let’s leave that aside till when next update comes.

How can I download Mozilla 7.0?

If you want to download the latest version of the mozilla firefox for your computer, you can get it from techatlast.

Functions of the Firefox 7.0

Though, the newer version, Mozilla firefox 7.o, does promises lots of things but the main attraction to people is the low memory usage option.

You can download Mozilla Firefox 7.0 from that link and then start to enjoy it. You can also read the release notes here.

Web Banner Design (Ads Concepts)

Creative Banners: Simple Steps to Design Banners for Increased CTR

Banner advertising is a very widespread and popular form of advertising online. Most websites have banner advertising on them. Though banners have been said to be declining in effectiveness, they can still be a great source of income and visitors for most site owners and webmasters.

With online banners, there are several factors that are crucial for getting a high click through rate.

Design Banners for Conversion

Type of Banner Ad designed by Themefuse

Small file

When designing a banner, it is vital to get this right. If the .JPG or .GIF file is very large, it could take some time to download, meaning some visitors might leave the page before seeing the banner. People won’t click the banner if they don’t see it. Therefore, it is important to ensure that your file size does not exceed 15K at most.

Call to action

This is a great and simple way of increasing your banner’s CTR (click through rate). Having a call to action involves inserting words such as ‘sign up now’ or ‘click here’ to encourage readers to do something. With off-line mediums of advertising, audiences are just required to read or watch the ad. Since many people are used to offline advertising, they might not realize that they are meant to click on online banners to learn more. Having a call to action has enhanced the effectiveness of the banners in my blog.

Animation

Banners with moving elements capture more attention than static banners. The idea behind banner design is to capture the attention of web visitors. Therefore, using animation can be helpful in this. However, avoid using too many animations which will increase file size and also distract visitors who are trying to read your content.

Good ad copy

Though fancy images and animations may grab visitors’ attention, they are not likely to convince visitors to click. It is the text which will get people interested in your product. Emphasize the benefits of your service or product. Let people know how your product will improve their lives. Keep your words concise and brief. You could use words such as ‘proven’, ‘free’ and ‘secret’ which are known to grab people’s attention.

Conclusion

Make sure you put your banner on websites which target your preferred audience i.e. the people who are likely to purchase your product. Don’t put a banner for a health product on a website dedicated to web design. No one will be interested and your money will be wasted. If you fail to expose your banner to the right audience, the tips mentioned above will not help you.

Grids are made by persistently sub dividing the available canvas area by a ratio. However, in a website design, we do not have something called Canvas area; also we have browsers which come in different sizes, scrolling and so on.

So how do the web designers use this idea of the grid? He simply works with the column, baseline and situational sub divisions. When you calculate the baselines and you have the boxes in hand, it’s time to use the golden ratio division (aka phi), the rule of thirds, Fibonacci pattern.

You can try concepts like disharmony, ordered chaos, asymmetrical balance to give new life to your website. Lastly where do you stand, do you love to experiment with grids and make the sky the limit or still want to stick to the old and traditional way of web designing.

The choice is yours, whether you want to fly or lag behind the world, as its competition, others won’t stop, they will have the Grid Power.
