How to Update Google Chrome in Desktop/Android

How to Update Google Chrome in Desktop/Android

Chrome is an amazingly fast and free browser, from Google. I personally prefer using Chrome over Safari and Firefox, because of availability of thousands of plugins to choose from, easy to use developer options and the main plus point of using Chrome is that I get extra security from the search giant Google. Google automatically warns me when I try opening spam or infected websites. I rarely get this sort of security in other browsers, until I manually make use of antivirus plugins.
Well, All I want to say is that I love surfing web with Google Chrome, and I recommend you too to start using it, if you still haven’t. I bet you’ll not regret.
I was just playing around. If you weren’t using Google chrome as your browser, why would you have bothered reading this post. Okay, let’s get to the point here. This quick guide shows how you can update Google Chrome in your desktop or Android device.

UPDATE GOOGLE CHROME IN DESKTOP

While you’re in Windows or Mac, simply click on the stack icon (that says, Customize and control Google Chrome) besides URL bar, and visit Help and About > About Google Chrome.
In next windows, Chrome will automatically check for updates.
You can also directly visit this settings page by entering chrome://chrome/ in the URL bar.
Mac users can also update google chrome by visiting Chrome (from the menu bar) > About Google Chrome. This takes you to the same page where Chrome checks for updates availability.

UPDATE GOOGLE CHROME ON ANDROID DEVICES

If you’ve installed Google Chrome on your Android device and want to update it to the latest version, you can do that using the play store.
Open Play Store app and make sure you’re logged in with your Gmail account. Tap on the menu (stack icon) to bring a list of options and select My apps. You can also slide your finger from left corner of the screen to bring this menu.
Now find Google Chrome from the updates available apps list. In the next window tap on UPDATE button and confirm your update decision.
Update will be automatically downloaded and installed on your Android device.

Gmail.com or Googlemail.com

Google offers its service under two different domains Gmail.com and Googlemail.com



Just today, I came to know that Google offers its service under two different domains Gmail.com and Googlemail.com. And I thought of doing little digging on what actually is this?  As @gmail.com is most common among us and most users, for people from some countries @googlemail.com was the only option to use Google's email service.

When we sign up for Gmail account we get the email address in the format [email protected] which we see most often around the web. Users in Germany and United Kingdom have got [email protected] by default unless they registered an account before June 2005 and October 2005 as they were allowed to keep the gmail.com address in this case.
Later on,
Users from the United Kingdom have seen change as Google announced to phase out googlemail.com address. New registrations from the UK also got a gmail.com email address while old users have the choice to convert their googlemail.com address to gmail.com. Only users from Germany were left with googlemail.com email address.
Lately,
Google managed to obtain the rights to use Gmail in Germany in 2012. June 2012 onward, all new users from Germany also get's gmail.com email address.

Is Google Mail and Gmail same thing?

Yes, it's same thing but you can only have one Google email address, but e-mail's sent to any of the address (@gmail.com or @googlemail.com) will be delivered to you. You can also set up a custom from which address you want to send mail.

Are Gmail and Googlemail interchangable?

Yes, the two Google mail domains are interchangeable. Mails sent to [email protected] will reach [email protected] users and vice verse.

How to make gmail.com to googlemail.com or vice versa?

Firstly you nee to have a Google account it may be [email protected] or [email protected] When you login to your Google account then follow the following steps.
  • On the left most corner of the screen click on setting menu (gear icon)
  • Under setting choose Account and Import section and in that section there is an option Send mail as [email protected] or googlemail.com


  • Click on add another email and when the new window appears enter the new domain you wish to [email protected] or [email protected] and click Next Step button. 
  • Finally, Set which email address you want to set as your default email address.

[SEO] Increase Link Building for Search Engine Optimization

In the field of search engine optimization, link building describes actions aimed at increasing the number and quality of inbound links to a webpage with the goal of increasing the search engine rankings of that page or website.

Links are the most important thing that contribute an important part in ranking and is also the major factor among search engine ranking factors. Through links, search engines analyze the popularity of websites based on its originality,trust, spam, authority.Link building refers to the process of getting external pages to link to a page on your website. It is one of the many tactics used in search engine optimization (SEO).


Since Google’s algorithm is largely based on links, having a number of high-quality links to your site is obviously incredibly important in driving search traffic, if you don’t have links to your site, you won’t show up in search results listings.

There are a number of ways to get links to your site, but as Google and other search engines become more and more sophisticated, many of them have become extremely risky. If you are new to SEO and are looking to leverage the channel, these riskier and more aggressive means of trying to get links likely are not good, as you won’t know how to properly navigate the pitfalls and evaluate the risks. Trying to create links specifically to manipulate Google rankings doesn’t create any other value for your business in the event that the search engine algorithms shift and your rankings disappear.

A more sustainable approach to developing links is to focus on more general, sustainable marketing approaches such as creating and promoting useful content that also includes specific terms you’d want to rank for.


Major factors used by search engine to assign value to the link:

  1. Global Popularity: To gain trust with the search engines, you need to do link building on popular domains. Making your website globally popular is not an easy task. 
  2. Anchor Text: One of the most important things search engines take into account in ranking a page is the actual text a linking page uses to talk about your content.
  3. Trust Rank: Internet contains lots of spam. Linking from high authority domains can result in a significant boost to the scoring a lot of Trust factor.

Some of the methods to build the backlinks.

How Forum submission help in promoting your website?
Forum submission can not only boost the SEO ranking but attracts more followers through forum commenting. The high-quality forum submission attracts the users, and usually, there is a backlink building from it. So most of the people click and get converted if it’s a good content. And website gets more traffic as well.
Question & Answer Participation
It is mainly a query of the user seeking answers from others. Like quora, yahoo answers, ask.com etc. If a user search for any tech question on google, google doesn't have its answer of its own. What it does is it crawls millions of websites online to find the correct answer. And if your website has the right answer and you are even sharing the links on question and answer forums, Google SEO will fetch your site.

Link Building by answering questions
By providing a detailed answer to questions you create a rich content on a service with high authority in the search engines. A well-answered question makes visitors think if the answer is so informative then how much more information is there will be if I click the link. Thus, it not only improves its rankings but at the same time generate traffic to your website as well.

Participating on Blogs by answering through comments
Leaving a comment on a blog can result in a relevant do-follow link to the individual's website. Most of the time, however, leaving a comment on a blog turns into a no-follow link, which are not counted by search engines, such as Google and Yahoo! Search. On the other hand, blog comments are clicked on by the readers of the blog if the comment is well-thought-out and pertains to the discussion of the post on the blog. It is basically an article which needs a discussion of people through the comment section. When you post a comment on a blog having high traffic, if your comment was relevant and interesting, visitors may follow the link in your comment to visit your website.

Link Building Techniques without content

Monetary approach

Boost your page or an article paying some money. Sometimes it is worth to pay some amount for a link to get high traffic from that source.


Location based links

Focus primarily on your location what people are talking around. What is the fresh topic that can be discussed? Participating in forums that are location specific and driving traffic from there by building quality links.


Social Relationship

Asking your friend to provide link by a side-wide link or widgets. You can even ask them to share your links in social medias like Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, etc. Inserting social share buttons to share the content across the web can be the most useful thing for being socially popular.

Google Apps: How to Exchange Your Domain Mail with Google Mail App?


Whichever be the ISP that provided you a domain name, you will only get limited size of space for your email. I registered my site from ohodomain and it provides me about 50MB of space for mail exchange and I use webmail to view my emails. Unlike many email browsing application/ email service provider like outlook, thunderbird, yahoo and gmail, webmail is one of them. 
Today in this blog I'll list out the step by step guide to setup widely used Google's Product Gmail Application for using it to browse your email provided by your domain provider.


After the email is setup you can simply enter your email "[email protected]".
You can than reach to your email login screen by typing "mail.google.com" .Where you will enter your email [email protected] and your password.
In order to reach your admin panel which is also provided by Google, your URL will be something like this https://google.com/a/domainname.com

G Suite Account Setup

Below are the step-by-step  guide to perform the mail exchange:
  • First you need to sign up at G Suite for Google Apps.
    G Suite is powered by Google Cloud which provides your business with Gmail, Docs, Drive and Calendar.
  • During the Registration you need to provide your Personal as well as Organization Details like (Name, Current Email, Business or Organization Name,Number of Employees, Country. Region)
  • Next you will be directed to configure your domain. There are two options where you can either register your existing domain or buy a new one from google.
    Select your existing domain 
  • Next You will be asked for a username and password to register a new account at G Suite.
This completes the first part of our set up. Now you need to verify your ownership of the domain you just registered. This can be done by following the email you received after the registration got completed.

Domain Exchange

Now that you have your G Suite Account you need to verify the domain and do the mail exchange i.e. you need to point your domain email server with Google's provided mail server exchange links. We will proceed to the step-by-step guide to do the mail exchange.
    • To Perform the mail exchange you need to login to the admin panel (call it as CPanel or administration panel, just login to the page where you do your domain's modification). NOTE:I can do the modification from my domain admin panel as well as through Cloudflare. Because I monitor my domains HTTPS , SSL Certificated through Cloudflare. So I can add any email exchange point from here only.
    • In you Admin Panel, Go to the Email configuration Section. Click on Configure your Domain Name to use our Name Servers.There you need to add MX Record. NOTE: A MX record identifies registered or assigned with your domain.
    • Now add following MX Entry for your server domain which is provided by google cloud. Also donot forget to add their priority:
      PRIORITY MAIL SERVER1 SPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM
      5 ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM
      5 ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM
      10 ASPMX2.GOOGLEMAIL.COM
      10 ASPMX3.GOOGLEMAIL.COM
      To know more about verifying G Suite Domain follow this link : G Suite Quick Fixes Help

      This completes your second part of cnfiguration. Now that you have the verified G Suite account and you completed your Mail Server Point Exchange Completed, you can login to the admin panel og your G Suite through this link: https://google.com/a/domainname.com.
      There you can add users in your business. After the complete setup of G Suite you can not only login to email but GSuite provides a package of Gmail, Docs, Drive and Calendar. You can have access to these applications.

      By default Google Cloud Provides 30 GB of cloud storage which is now your secure and convenient store for domain communication.
      For a corporate Organization the cost  should not be expensive as well. It chager $5per user/ per month.
      Also you can try the free version to review if migrating to Gmail Apps is worth it or not.The free trail version is available for 15 days

      Can Computer suppress Human Intelligence?


      Picture from
      Computers today have achieved attention of the global audience to an extent never before seen on this earth. We humans have amazing capabilities that computers can't dream of, for example we are extremely brilliant to identify what we DON'T know. If you ask someone if s/he knows what is the meaning of 'Mameluke', s/he will answer immediately 'no' if s/he doesn't know it. Just that easy for us. But ask the biggest database in the world for any kind of information, and it will need time to search the full database just to identify if it has the information or not.And with this attention comes the power to influence people's thinking which has indeed given a raise to an open question: Are computers smarter than a human brain? Are they more intelligent? 
      Computers will never be as smart as humans because they can only do what a programmer “teaches” them to do, and the programmer cannot teach them more than a subset of what he himself knows as "an intelligent creation has to have an intelligent creator" but Why is the idea wrong? Because it assumes that an intelligent creation has to have an intelligent creator.an,an intelligent creation has to have an intelligent creator
      On our first thought, we might think that computer are superior to human brain. Computer can perform complex task very quickly, it has a huge storage and does not forget information as easily as human brain. Computer is not tired performing complex string of tasks while we human need to take a coffee break every couple of hour to keep our mind functioning properly.
      However, these task are virtue of faster processing speed and diligence rather than intelligence. Computer are not able to adapt and learn new things like human brain. Our brain is capable of analyzing new and unfamiliar system in a way computer cannot. It can also recognize complex patterns while in computer it is limited to only superficial level. Also, computers today are not capable of learning from past experience as us human and rely mainly on the information it gets during the operation and that limitation of computer make it inferior to human brain.
      Even though, the task of creating an intelligent computer have eluded computer scientists and engineers for decades they have not given up. Moreover, they have been succeeded in it more than ever before. We have systems that can understand narrow subsets of human language, solve problems in well-defined areas of knowledge, navigate restricted real world spaces without human assistance, and perform other limited tasks. Also, Scientist in IBM developed a super computer Deep Blue that defeated world chess champion Garry Kasparov in 1997. This feat is considered to be most significant breakthrough in task of creating truly intelligent machine.
      As much as we have talked about intelligent computers there must be a method for distinguishing a whether a machine is intelligent or not. There are several method for testing this and the most influential but also highly criticized is called the Turing test, developed by Alan Turing in 1950. It requires a judge to engage in natural conversation with a human being and a machine which is designed to generate performance indistinguishable from that of human being. If the judge cannot reliably tell the machine from the human, the machine is said to have passed the test. A program named ELIZA, developed by Joseph Weizenbaum in 1966, is claimed by some programmer to have passed the Turing Test but this view is highly contentious. Till today scientists and engineers are developing program that can successfully pass the Turing test with any contention.
      Development of intelligent system has come a long way, near intelligent system which can perform various task without human interference has been developed and such system is being called Artificial Intelligence (A.I.). An autonomous vehicle developed by DARPA (Defense and Research Project Agency) of US and Carnegie Mellon University drove almost 2850 miles from Washington DC to San Diego without human help. PEGASUS, a spoken language interface connected to American Airlines is used to obtain flight information and make flight reservation over the phone. Major Smart-phone companies are equipping their device with personal assistant which can perform near human conversation and learns and displays information according to how user use their device.
      A number of artificial intelligence (AI) enthusiasts have been predicting that machines will eventually surpass human intelligence in the foreseeable future. In some cases, when tasks are easily broken down into sequential, smaller arithmetical components, computers outperform the human brain, reflecting the lack of adaptation of the later to such problems. Despite this, the current overall consensus in the field is that computers still need to evolve significantly to match the efficiency and complexity of the brain. Unlike computer power, which is very well defined, we are still far from understanding how to express the processing power of the human brain.
      At the fundamental level, the intelligence of machines, as well as the cognition of the brain is a based on the storage of information and electrical currents conducted through highly specialized and sophisticated architecture of wires. In machines, these signals flow at the speed of light while in the brain, the velocity of impulse conduction in the axons is between 0.2-120 m/s. Supercomputers have approached roughly the estimated computing power of the brain, several petaflops, but at an enormous cost: about 10 million watts of power consumption versus 20 watts in the brain.
      However, with development of intelligent machine human being will have to prepare for new changes socially and mentally as well. Humans are used to seeing themselves as the only intelligent beings in the world. If we are going to deal with truly intelligent computers, we will have to adjust very deep beliefs about our uniqueness and superiority. For intelligent computers will not only possess human-level capabilities, they may be functionally immortal and ultimately possess powers beyond our ken. Initially, they may be dependent upon us, but, if we do not deliberately impede their progress, they could become autonomous in relatively short order. Under these circumstances, it is unclear whether they would integrate into our society or form a parallel civilization. As mechanical beings, intelligent computers could potentially modify themselves much more rapidly than humans and evolve at a faster pace.
      For as long as computers have been around, they've been doing things better than humans. But we cannot deny the fact that when logic is concerned, we humans rule. So for today, in the question of which is more intelligent, Human brain takes away the title. Computers are only as smart as their users and programmers are.

      Red Line In Youtube Videos


      What is this red line in Youtube videos?

      Channel: Traveling Nepal
      Have you ever noticed this red line at bottom of your video thumbnail?. It's been about a month that I'm noticing this red strip below the video thumbnails of my youtube channel . And this is noticeable because there is this thin red line in only few videos. So I searched for what was the issue. There was a huge discussion going on in Google Product Forum. But different people had different ideas and nobody were having a common opinion.

      Why Red Line?

      If you have noticed, after this red line, something has vanished from the video thumbnails. Do you know what is that? Earlier there used to be a already watched notation. And now this is replaced by the red line. So why is this red line? Youtube videos has this red line because those are the videos which you have already watched with same Youtube user account some time before.

      In the picture below you see only some fraction of red line in video Zariya. This is because you watched this video to that timestamp and discontinued afterwards.


      How to remove this Red Line?

      If you donot want to use this feature from youtube you can always opt out from it. In order to do so we have to remove a cookie from youtube. The cookie name is VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE. 
      1. Go to your browser's Settings Menu

      [SEO] How to Add Google SiteMap in Blogger?

      We will show you to generate a complete sitemap of your website whichever be its domain name (domain.blogspot.com or domain.com)

      What are Sitemaps?Sitemaps are an easy way for webmasters to inform search engines about pages on their sites that are available for crawling. In its simplest form, a Sitemap is an XML file that lists URLs for a site along with additional metadata about each URL (when it was last updated, how often it usually changes, and how important it is, relative to other URLs in the site) so that search engines can more intelligently crawl the site. Sitemap 0.90 is offered under the terms of the Attribution-ShareAlike Creative Commons License and has wide adoption, including support from Google, Yahoo!, and Microsoft.


      Note: Above definition was adapted from the Sitemaps.org

      How to Begin?
      Problem with blog hosting with blogger is that unlike other hosting (Wordpress, Jumla, Drupal), you cannot upload any custom files to the blogger. All you can do is just select new post and write text in there and post the blog. Also the problem with sitemaps in blogger is that google adds only twenty six most recent blog posts in its sitemaps. So all the posts before these 26 may never be crawled as well as indexed by Google.

      How to Generate A Complete Sitemap?



      • You can find many free sitemap generators, select one of them. I use the sitemap generator developed by Famous Blogger Amit Agrawal
      • Open Sitemap Generator and enter your site name.
      • Now Click Generate Sitemap
      • Copy all the texts you get as generated sitemap.
      • Now under your blogger dashboard, goto settings -> Search Preferences -> Enable Custom robot.txt option.
      • Paste your generated sitemap. Now from next time the google search engine crawlers will index your pages.

      NOTE: This article is based upon Amit Agrawal's article about creating sitemap for blogger
