Google Recommend To Use hyphens (-) instead of Underscores (_)

Tuesday, April 1, 2014 by Astha Jain · 1

Matt Cutts Senior Google Engineer who handle's Webspam team and leads with the search quality team on SEO (search engine optimization) issues. According to him, Search engine "Google" treats hyphens(-) and Underscores (_) differently from one another. We must use dashes in Urls in spite of underscores. Since, hyphen only separate two words but underscore makes easier for users to identify that your webpage is what about.

Matt Cutts's video about underscores in URLs:

For example:
If your Url contains Underscores (_) how_google_hummingbird_search_algorithm then Google Search Engine will read it as howgooglehummingbirdsearchalgorithm, but if use hypens(-) hen Search Engine will treat it as different words like as how-google-hummingbird-search-algorithm.

It willl look like as

One more thing it is not limited to Urls only but it also affects image alt tags. To check whether your website's URLs use underscores or not. http://www.woorank.com/

Monday, March 31, 2014 by Astha Jain · 1

When Google revels Google Hummingbird’s Search Algorithm Update then Matt Cutts spent his one hour and twenty minutes into the video and said "Hummingbird effects 90% of all searches but usually to a small degree because we are saying, this particular document isn't really about what the user is searching for."

Google Hummingbird Update

Hummingbird search algorithm is not for SEO, it's for Search Engines mainly for Google. It doesn’t impact SEO that much and it is rolled out to tackle out multifarious queries particularly queries in a brand new and intellectual way. It is named for the speed and accuracy of the tiny bird. It simply says that:

  • ·         Fresh, Unique and attractive content is still important and rich.
  • ·         Do proper SEO and get all reasonable back links.
  • ·         Place keywords with awareness in your content

Google Hummingbird’s Search Algorithm Update says that its main objective is to make available results that actually answer the question or the users search query.

Basics of CMS: Content Management System

Friday, March 28, 2014 by Astha Jain · 1

Content Management System is a platform of software application which is used to manage, create, customize information and data for any website directly on a network, internet or run manually on your system. In recent scenario, use of CMS has become a widespread all over the world because it helps in quick creation of powerful websites and also we do not need any sort of high level of programming language knowledge to build a webpage. CMS has divided into two main kinds:

#1 Proprietary CMS
#2 Open Source CMS

1. Proprietary CMS
Proprietary CMS means one will need a license to use any CMS application. But in most of the cases, even license holders can be prohibited with the issue for duplicating the CMS and creating modifications to that application until and unless user will not acquire a more high-priced developers license.
CMS must run properly wherever you use because in most of the cases proprietary CMS only works when the website you put together with them is hosted with the CMS owner.
For example: You may see "Build yourself" or "Live".
If you are creating a website yourself with their tools then that webpage/website will not work for longer. Because in future, if you will ever try to move your domain somewhere else, the website that you have created in proprietary Content Management System application may be converted to another format.

2. Open Source CMS
Open Source (OS) CMS can be run on a scripting language like as php that can be imbedded into HTML such as WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal. One do not need to purchase a license to use OS CMS.
* Easier to use
* Cheaper
* No Licence
* No Upgradation Fees
* No Contracts / No Long-term commitment
We do not need to appoint a developer for OS CMS since there are so many free modules, plug-ins, and complimentary tools. Also, countless free templates and themes.
