Only in few days, Indonesian people will face legislative election day. If still confuse and doubt about which party should you choose, I’ve already make a small summary but it can show you the answer in my previous post.

Disable Search History by Google

Monday 20 January 2014 | post a comment

If you log in into your Google account, any activity on the web will be recorded. That include, what you search on the internet using Google search engine.

The data which Google track is, the keyword do you use, the website you visit based on your search term, and how many time you visit those sites.

Google Search History

Well this is sucks, but Google give us an option to turn off the search tracking facilities. I don’t know if they are still tracking us or not, but at least this feature can blocked someone from tracking you (as preventive action if your account has been compromised).

Blacklist Google Search List Result, Fight against Spammer

Monday 18 July 2011 | Comments (4)

Google search engine has been our daily activity in internet. Everyday we use it to get any information from internet. But nowadays, many people do some cheat activity by stealing others content site’s. Usually those thieves using auto generate content and search term tagging tools to make Google search result went into their site.

Higher traffic mean higher visitor. Put some ads, people click it, money comes easily into their account. They claimed to be a internet marketer, but they are nothing more than a trickster. Worse, some of them use the free service to do those spamming activity. That’s why Google banned free (sub) domain services, such www.co.cc and www.co.tv.

As a regular user, it doesn’t mean we are weak. We can fight back, and together as a community we can change it. I will show you how to fight those “internet marketer” scammer.

  1. Click as many ads (adsense kinda type) on their site. Google will detect it as fraud click and their account will be ban.
  2. Submit their site’s as spam using Google spam report.
  3. Using firefox to browse the net? You can use Greasemonkey add-ons and install Google Hit Hider by Domain script. You can block a scam site’s in Google SERP.

Dahsyatnya Google

Monday 7 February 2011 | Comments (10)

Google memiliki salah satu fitur “Autocomplete”, di mana Google akan langsung memberikan saran kata kunci pencarian apa yang akan diinput di tab bar pencarian oleh penggunanya. Sebagai contoh, pada suatu ketika, saya berniat mencari seluk beluk mengenai administrasi kenegaraan. Dimulai dari tab pencarian google.co.id, saya menginput kata “administrasi negara”.

Baru sampai dua huruf diketik, dari “a” dan “d”, fitur Autocomplete Google bekerja dan menyarankan pencarian menurut versi alogaritma Google. Dan ini adalah hasil dari input huruf “a” dan “d”

adjie-massaid-meninggal

Dua entry teratas yang muncul adalah “Adjie Massaid”. Well apakah ini berarti Google doyan nge-gosip atau nggak mau dibilang kuper dengan mengikuti perkembangan berita selebritis Indonesia?

Inilah dahsyatnya Google. Pencarian juga didasarkan pada data-data dari user yang lain yang menggunakan Google. Trending keyword pencarian yang terekam dari user-user yang lain akan disarankan kepada saya ketika menginput huruf “a” dan “d” menjadi “Adjie Massaid”. Sementara itu, keyword yang ingin saya gunakan adalah “administrasi negara”.

Google menyarankan hal yang salah kepada saya!

Apakah Google lebih bodoh dari saya, atau apakah saya akan menuntut Google atas kesalahan yang telah ia lakukan? Saya rasa itu tidak penting. Tapi mungkin Anda ingin mengetahui lebih lengkap fitur Autocomplete dari Google dengan membacanya di sini.

Interface Google Meniru Bing

Thursday 10 June 2010 | Comments (19)

Halaman depan situs pencarian populer Google kini dilengkapi fitur baru, yakni hiasan berbagai gambar panorama unik yang menarik. Tentunya kita lebih dulu mengenal dengan interface ini pada situs pencarian lainnya dari Microsoft, yakni bing (bing.com). Sepertinya Google terinspirasi dan mencoba meniru apa yang telah dilakukan oleh Bing terlebih dahulu, dan memang menurut netter seperti saya, gambar-gambar ini memang memberikan hiburan tersendiri di sela-sela padatnya pekerjaan.

Apakah menurut Anda, apakah yang dilakukan oleh Google ini adalah suatu hal yang patut diapresiasi atau sebaliknya malah harus dicemooh karena meniru (plagiatisme) Microsoft Bing? Pendapat saya pribadi, saya lebih pro-Google ketimbang Microsoft, soalnya mereka pelit bin rakus :-p
