How To Manage or Delete Your Google Search History

How To Manage or Delete Your Google Search History

This is good information to know.

You can manage your Google Search History to keep or delete whatever you want.

Google gives you the option of controlling what is kept of your travels on the web and what you can hide.

This is not to be confused with your browser search history which you can also manage from inside your browser.

This is different. You have to go to your Google Activity and App page and then go from there.

The video shows you how and what to do in three minutes so I won’t take up more of your time.

Go take a look and share, like, tweet, google+ if you find it helpful.

Enjoy.

Introduction to Google Plus – The User Interface

Google Plus The User Interface

Google Plus has been around for a while now, but the user experience has been slower to develop than its main rival Facebook.

I have been on Google Plus from the very beginning and had a hard time really understanding how to use it.

I read some of the very first books that laid out what it was, but I still never fully grasped what the application was about.

So I decided that I would start with finding the “start” button, so to speak.

And that meant, figuring out what the different parts of the visual real estate were supposed to be offering me in terms of functionality.

That’s what this video does. It shows the different parts of the user interface and what they do for you.

Once you have an idea of what you are looking at and understand the various parts, you can then begin to determine what and how  you will use Google Plus to advance your business online.

So there you have it.

Take a look at the video and see if it helps you get started.

As always, give it a “tweet”,”Like”, “Google Share”,”Pin”,”Stumble” or whatever you can think of.

Many thanks for your support.

Google Webmaster Tools Overview

Google Webmaster Tools Overview

I made three other videos about specific features of Webmaster Tools but never did a quick overview video.

I should have started with showing you where the “on” button is, speaking figuratively of course.

So here is a short video about some of the basic features available to you.

It takes you through the left hand sidebar and shows you what tools are useful in helping you tune your site for maximum user friendliness and efficiency.

None of this is going to guarantee instant ranking. authority or page rank. But it will help in establishing that you know what your are doing online and over the long term, get you good results with your user base.

Take a look and don’t forget to “Google+’,”Like”,”Tweet”, “Pin”,”Tumble” or whatever else you use in Social media.

How To Use Data HighlLighter In Webmaster Tools

How To Use Data HighlLighter

Webmaster tools is a resource you are provided for free.

So why not learn to use it?

One feature that comes in real handy is Data Highlighter.

What it does is allow you to identify your content so that the search engine bot can parse what your content is about to the new database management process that defines Google Semantic Search.

It means that Google will have an easier time matching your content not only with keywords directly related to your title, url, headings or links but also to related terms that users may write that can connect them with your information.

What Data Highlighter does is match your information with Schema defined terms that will make the semantic process easier to interpret your content.

The tool allow you to define key elements of your article or information to the schema defined terms the search engine needs to parse out the date to the correct index.

So take a look at the video and I think the visuals will make all this giberish I just wrote more understandable.

None of this is going to necessarily directly result in higher ranking or increase your authority or anything like that. Only your content and your relationship with your audience will do that over time.

But it will increase your chances of connecting to people who stand to benefit from your knowledge and that will increase your ranking and authority.

So have a look at the video and as always, give it a plug:”Google+,”Like”,”Tweet”,”Pin”,”Stumble” or whatever.

Many thanks for your support. Stay well, stay with it, talk soon.

Webmaster Tools: 404 Redirection

There is a great way to fix the pages on your site that have 404 errors.

The first thing you have to do is find out which pages lead to 404 errors and the best way to do that is to use your Google Webmaster tools.

While it does not do much for page rank or anything like that, fixing a web page that leads nowhere does contribute to a better user experience.

So the first thing you do is log into your Webmaster Tools account and go to the main dashboard.

In the left hand sidebar, Click the Crawl link to display the dropdown menu and select t he link for Crawl errors and click it.

This will display the Current Status page and all the relevant information will be ready for you to see.

From here you can select to see the pages with 404 errors on your site, your mobile device and more.

Once you know what the pages are to be redirected, you want to go to your WordPress site and add the plugin “Redirections”.

When you activate it you will see it offers a tool that sets up the process to put the url for the page with the 404 error in one field.

And then also has a target field for the destination url to which you will send the redirect.

All this is easy to learn by watching the video, so go have a look and you will be ready to do your 404 repairs in a matter of minutes.

As always give the this information a “Like”,”Google +”,”Tweet”,”Pin”,”Stumble” or whatever your favorite social media choice is.

How To Add Your Site To Webmaster Tools

Webmaster Tools – Adding Your Site

I know when I looked at the Webmaster tools for the very first time. I was totally intimidated.

The interface, the data, all the mumbo jumbo that I had to figure out was too much.

So for a long time I just ignored it and spent my time trying to learn Google Analytics.

That in itself was a bear so I wasn’t about to add to the misery.

Well time has passed and Google Analytics has gone “not provided” so it is time to get over it and learn how to use the Webmaster tools.

Step one is how to find it. Step two is how to add a site.

Well this first of a series video does just that.

So have a look and in a matter of minutes you will have your site up and ready to receive data.

Aa always, give me a social thumbs up if you find the information useful: “Google+”,”Like”,”Tweet”, “Pin”,”Stumble” take your pick.

Many thanks for your support. Stay with it, stay well and talk soon.
