Spots broke the various sections of the event

Thoughts:
What would google be if they don’t have a search? Proves – Organizing world information has its powerful benefits. The question is did Sergey and Page see this future when they started Google. Makes you wonder what technology today has this far reaching potential.

I understand the power for profiling users – whatever product/service you have.

Better Profile, better service

Its amazing how google continues to build your profile and in the future would know more about you than you could analyze. Is this a good thing?
We are trading our privacy for accessibility/comfort. I’m not able to comprehend the repercursions in the future.

Google search – be mobile friendly

Google search changes favour mobile http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-32380223

All the more for small businesses to not put off the website revamp and go mobile friendly.

For starters, if you decide to q uickly revamp. WordPress would be a beat way forward with plenty of mobile friendly themes on the market. Theme forest and creativemarket are great places to start your research.

I have found them to be best way yo kick start a web project.

Tricking Gmail Users to click the ads

Kudos! The designer who came up with this.

I don’t think tricking the user to click the ad gives the advertiser his money’s worth.

Why?

The advertisers would be paying Google either for the clicks or the impressions. PPC or PPI.

If its impressions, the advertiser in this case, Lynda is surely getting value, i couldn’t ignore it at that location. I’m sure it would be the case for many.

But if you are paying for the click, then you are just wasting the money. I might even click it thinking its a mail. But, i’m not going to give you business.

What do the readers think ?
