UK Shoppers credit card Info Revealed in Google Search

0 comments

image Recently, Credit Card details of many British Online Shoppers were revealed in Google Search. The details which got revealed included credit card numbers, names and addresses of Visa, Mastercard and American Express card users.

The  details was apparently discovered accidently by cybercriminals from the Far East who were planning to sell the information. I’m not sure that if the details revealed was of Google Checkout shoppers.

 

According to the Daily Mail, a spokesperson for banking industry trade body APACS had said most of the details related to expired cards and the remaining cards has been 'flagged' by the banks.

This isn't enough for Conservative MP Nigel Evans, who is also chairman of the All Party Group on Identity Fraud, as he told the Mail: "This is hugely worrying. The credit card companies have a duty of care to inform all those involved that they are at risk of identity fraud."

A spokesperson for Google has revealed that the information has been removed but did explain that search engines "do not have the ability to remove content directly from the internet."

I’ll advice you to not to shop online with Unauthorised Services.

Fast Search Images which you actually want – Google Image Ripper

1 comments

Google Image Ripper is one of the best image search tool I’ve ever found on Internet. In most of the time, when you search for images on Google Image Search, you come up with some unrelevant size results with countless pages.

Moreover you have to click the thumbnails to see the full-size image. Google Image Ripper is not owned by Google. It's a Web site that allows you to search Google Image Search and see the full size images rather than previews. This only works well if you have a high speed Internet connection.

But with Google Image Ripper, you enter the search term, select the desired size, check whether the result should include “nsfw” (not safe for work) images.

Here is an example of the result.

  3. Switch off Wireless(Bluetooth and Wi-fi): Even if you’re not connected to any networks, your wireless LAN always searches for a new network that withdraws power from the battery. Watch out for Bluetooth also as some laptops have it and switch them off.

Google Introduces new expandable ads

0 comments

Google has introduced a new type of image/media ads in which the users have to click twice to go through it, and in other way they have to click twice to make you money.

adsense_expandable_ads

Well, I'm sure that you'll make money because your visitors will enjoy while going through this expandable Rich Media Ad. This ad is currently available for North American and European Publishers only.

How do these expandable ads interact with users?

The ad will be presented normally to the users, but when they click on it, the add would then expands to some size not more than double. Hey! Don't worry about your page's design layout, it will not get modified. Reference is given in Adsense Blog about it:

Ads will expand only after a user clicks and interacts with the ad. Mouseovers or rollovers won't trigger the ad, in order to prevent accidental expansions.

An expandable ad won't expand more than double its width or height.

Once expanded, the ad will appear as a layer over the page content so that your content will not be modified or shifted in any way.

The user may close the expanded panel at any time.

All expandable ads must comply with our standard AdWords image ad policies.

So, as mentioned in the point “Once expanded, the ad will appear as a layer over the page content so that your content will not be modified or shifted in any way.” I think this point has cleared the above query.

How to place expandable ads?

If you have placed Image only ads on your site and you're a North American or European Publisher, then Google will automatically start serving Expandable Ads to your visitors.

0 comments

Google has introduced a new way to see your earnings in Euros. This new service is currently available for the publishers living in France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and Spain.

 google_adsense_euro[21]

Elodie Bodet at Adsense Official Blog says that:

To make the switch to local currency reports, you'll need to agree to a new set of Terms and Conditions. Here are the main changes involved:

  1. The party that publishers are contracting with changes from Google Inc. to Google Ireland Limited.
  2. Publishers are responsible for paying any local taxes in their jurisdiction. Google will only issue VAT refunds to publishers with an address in Ireland.
  3. The governing law changes from California law to either English or local law.

I've seen many publishers in forums and help centre asking for reports to be in Euros. It may be beneficial for them who are living in European Countries.

Well, we can hope that the next change will come for Asian Countries.
