Google Launches Adsense Extension for Chrome

Google today released a new extension for Google Chrome that will help you quickly access your AdSense earning reports without leaving the page you are currently reading. 

Google AdSense Publisher Toolbar for Chrome

The extension, known as the AdSense Publisher Toolbar, offers a summary of your AdSense earnings for the current day, the previous day, the current month and the previous month. In addition to daily earnings data, it also show revenue data for top channels that you have created in your AdSense account.

There’s an interestinglifetime revenuesection in the report that shows your total AdSense earnings from the day your account was approved for AdSense.

Once you install the extension, it connects to your Google AdSense account using OAuth and then uses AdSense APIs to fetch your earnings data. You need to authorize only once and thus, if you enjoy checking your AdSense report every hour, this extension could save you plenty of time.

I have multiple Google Accounts and my AdSense account uses an email address that is different from my primary Gmail address. Earlier, I had to log out of Gmail to check my AdSense reports but with the AdSense Publisher Toolbar now available, I can get my basic earnings data without having to switch accounts.

On a different note, I have no idea why the Google team is calling this extensions the AdSense Publisher Toolbar when it only adds a button near your Chrome address bar and there are no toolbars anywhere. You click the AdSense button and your earnings report are almost instantly display in an overlay. 

And if you activate the AdSense extension while you are on your website (that is running AdSense ads), you can turn on the "site overlay" mode and it will display a quick summary of each ad unit’s earnings that are available on that page. Channel names are confusing, especially when you have tons of them, so this visual mode will come very handy.

Google is going to disable its 7 Services

Wave goodbye to Google Wave and a bunch of others stuff, says Google, listing a full seven services due to sign off permanently over the next few months. Google’s spin: It’s just a little “spring cleaning,” never mind the mess or inconvenience it may cause anyone who bought into this stuff. Then again, it was offered up gratis, so who can complain?

In the official blog post summing up what’s in store, Google pulls no punches, including a few thrown in reverse: “[We’re] in the process of shutting a number of products which haven’t had the impact we’d hoped for,” admits the company, adding that it’s “integrating others as features into our broader product efforts, and ending several which have shown us a different path forward.”

Here’s a list of what’s out, and when:

Google Bookmark Lists, an “experimental feature for sharing bookmarks and collaborating with friends.” End date: December 19, 2011.

Google Friend Connect, a way to integrate social features with websites “by embedding a few snippets of code.” End date: March 1, 2012.

Google Gears, an open-source multi-browser interface for running web apps and accessing related files offline. Google says it’s all part of their shift to HTML5. End date: December 1, 2011.

Google Search Timeline, the little search timeline that sometimes pops up when you google something. You’ll still be able to see charts, if you like, using Google Trends. End date: Right now, sounds like.

Google Wave, the collaboration/conversation tool I only used a handful of times while contributing to a comics-related column here. End date: April 30, 2012.

Knol, Google’s kind-of-sort-of response to Wikipedia, and while Google says it’s all part of a transition to its Annotum project, I’m not sure if all the stuff that’s in Knol’s going to make the jump. End date: April 30, 2012.

Renewable Energy Cheaper than Coal (RE<C), an attempt to reduce the cost of renewable energy. Google says that “[at] this point, other institutions are better positioned than Google to take this research to the next level.” End date: Now, with the results of the project published here.

Celebrating the Google's Birthday

Google's 13th Birthday on Floor ,so me & Tech Impulsion team celebrating the birthday with the whole world.

Imagine the internet and web without Google...You can't handle??  thats why Google is God for Technical Person as well as for Day without Google's some stuffs about Google

One day without Google
Have you ever spent a single day online without
our friend, Google?

Google owns our Internet

Whether we like it or not, “Google” is almost synonymous with “Internet”. Year after year, Google has developed enough online applications for us to be able to do anything you need to, by only using Google
Google is almost synonymous with Internet
Now we have a search engine, an online email service, an IM service, a blogging platform, photo and video sharing applications, a feed reader, an online word processor, an encyclopedia, a web site creator, an online directory and even an Internet browser!
Not to mention His PPC advertising system, its main source of revenue.
Now look at the list above. It´s pretty long, isn´t it? Well you know what? It´s only 10% of the programs, applications, widgets or services Google provides today.

Internet without Google?

Now the question is: would it be the Internet possible without Google?
Well, the natural response is yes, it would. But it would be an Internet without its best search engine,
What a mess!It seems almost impossible 2 work without Google!
without Gmail, YouTube, Google Video, Google Reader, Picassa, Blogger, Orkut, Google Maps, Google Docs, Google Analytics, Google AdSense, Google Chrome, Google Analytics, Google News, Google, Google, Google!
What a mess! It seems almost impossible to work without Google!
But it isn´t. That´s because - fortunately - for almost every service Google provides, there is an alternate service waiting to be discovered. So basically it all depends on your will to make a change. Are we ready to give up all these services and start One day without Google?

On September 4, 1998, Larry Page and Sergey Brin filed for incorporation as Google Inc. — they had received a $100,000 check from an investor made out to Google, Inc., and needed to incorporate that name so they could legally deposit the check.
Prior to the launch, Page and Brin met at Stanford in 1995, and soon decided to launch a search service called BackRub in January 1996. They soon reevaluated the name (and the creepy logo) in favor of Google, a play on the mathematical figure, “googol,” which represents the number 1 followed by 100 zeroes. The name embodied their mission to create an infinite amount of web resources. And that they did.
Since then, Google has become a household name to billions of people worldwide. You’ll overhear senior citizens command their grandchildren to “google” the price of foot cream. You’ll witness toddlers punching the screen of the latest Android phone. And chances are, you’ve navigated the circles of Google+ (if not, let’s get you an invite already).
About Google
Google Inc. is an American multinational public corporation invested in Internet search, cloud computing, and advertising technologies. Google hosts and develops a number of Internet-based services and products, and generates profit primarily from advertising through its AdWords program The company was founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin, often dubbed the "Google Guys",while the two were attending Stanford University as PhD candidates. It was first incorporated as a privately held company on September 4, 1998, and itsinitial public offering followed on August 19, 2004. At that time Larry Page, Sergey Brin, and Eric Schmidt agreed to work together at Google for twenty years, until the year 2024. The company's mission statement from the outset was "to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful", and the company's unofficial slogan – coined by Google engineer Amit Patel and supported by Paul Buchheit – is "Don't be evil". In 2006, the company moved to its current headquarters in Mountain View, California.

Play CityVille in Google+

Zynga is bringing its most popular game, CityVille, to Google’s Google+.
The two companies have been partners from the beginning of Google+ Games. Google is an investor in Zynga, and when the gaming platform launched in August, one of its first 16 game titles was Zynga Poker.

CityVille has drawn a lot more traffic to Facebook than Zynga’s poker game. The former has more than 70 million unique players every month, while the latter has about 30 million, according to AppData.

Zynga is hoping for a similar effect on Google+. Why? Because right now Zynga is largely dependent on Facebook. 

Facebook takes 30% of Zynga’s massive revenues, the same percentage that Apple charges for inclusion in the App Store. According to reports, Google+ is offering better terms for developers. Diversification would help the company grow faster and make its revenues less vulnerable to the whims of one platform.

“It’s no secret we’re big fans of Google+ here at Zynga,” reads a blog post announcing the addition of CityVille to the Google+ repertoire.

The latest estimates suggest that Google+ has around 50 million users. Facebook has 800 million. Clearly Google’s network has a long way to go before it’s comparable to Facebook. But letting its users build virtual cities could help build Google+’s user base.

Google Plus is now open for everyone

Google Plus
After being invite-only for nearly three months, Google+ is opening up to everyone. 
Writing on its official company blog about the 99 improvements that have been made to the product since launching, Google’s Vic Gundotra wrote, “We’re ready to move from field trial to beta, and introduce our 100th feature: open signups.”

Today’s update also comes with big improvements to Google+ Hangouts, including the ability to use them on Android devices (version 2.3 and higher). It also includes search, which is a hybrid of content shared on Google+ and results from around the web. “Just type what you’re looking for into the Google+ search box, and we’ll return relevant people and posts, as well as popular content from around the web,” Gundotra wrote.

SEE ALSO: Google+ Hangouts API for Developers

Google+ invites were in high demand when the service first launched in July, and the service attracted 20 million visitors in its first month. Since then, however, the service seems to have lost some of its luster, with a controversy around brand pages fanning the flames. 

Facebook has also launched a number of features that challenge what were initially selling points of Google’s offering. The leading social network revamped Friend Lists and made changes to the News Feed, both of which bring Google+ Circles-like functionality to the site.

Now that Google+ is open to everyone, we’ll see if the service can regain the momentum it had earlier this summer.

Google Launches Hangout API for Developers

Google+ Hangouts
In addition to the slew of new Hangout-related features announced today on the official Google blog, the Google+ team also announced the launch of the Google+ Hangouts API for developers. This API (application programming interface) will be available as a “Developer Preview” starting today – meaning it’s not a fully-cooked product, but one that’s available for testing purposes only.

The new Hangouts API will allow developers to build their own experiences inside Hangouts and build real-time applications that use Hangouts, similar to Google’s own built-in YouTube player. The YouTube player lets Google+ users in a Hangout watch videos together at the same time.

Google also announced screen-sharing, Google Docs editing and sketching as new built-in features for Google+ Hangouts today, thereby forcing developers to think beyond the obvious integrations to more creative uses of the Hangouts API when building their apps.

To get started with the API, developers will build a Web application, register it with Google and specify who on their team can load it into a Hangout. The app behaves like a normal Web app, says Google, but it can use the new APIs like synchronization. Developers can create a “shared state” among all instances of their app so that all of their users are instantly notified of changes made by anyone else. Also included are the first few multimedia APIs that enable apps to do things like mute the audio and video feeds of Hangout participants.

The increased focus on Google+ Hangouts comes at a time when interest in Google’s new social network is dwindling and Facebook has implemented several similar features to those found on Google+. It’s not surprising to find Google promoting Hangouts, then, given they’re one of the service’s main differentiating factors from Facebook. Although Facebook offers video chat with friends through its Skype integration, that support is limited to one-on-one conversation, not group chats.

With Hangouts, developers could potentially build free alternatives to paid apps for online meetings, podcasting, tutoring and education, gaming and more. It should be interesting to see what developers come up with. In the meantime, documentationsign up forms and group-based feedback are available now, too.

About Google+ Hangouts API for Developers

The Google+ Hangouts API allows you to develop collaborative apps that run inside of a Google+ Hangout. Hangout apps behave much like normal web apps, but with the addition of the rich, real-time functionality provided by the Hangouts APIs. Apps have the ability to control aspects of the user interface, synchronize data between hangout participants, and respond to various events in the hangout. 

We are launching the Hangouts API initially as a Developer Preview. We'll be gathering feedback during this early phase and using it to rapidly improve the API, so be aware that functionality is likely to change. You'll find that we've added additional tools directly in the hangout itself to help you build your apps more quickly.
Getting started is easy. First, build your app or just start with one of our pre-built examples like Talking Heads, which changes your avatar into a talking Android of your choice. Next, register it in the APIs Console, and tell us who on your team should be able to load your app. Then, start a hangout with your app!

Mens Love Google Map while womans Facebook:Survey

In breaking down the most used applications on Android phones based on gender, market analyst Neilson found 77.1 percent men drawn to Google maps while 81 percent women were attracted to Facebook

Men Love Google Maps, Women like FacebookThere were other notable differences in active reach of social applications. The majority of the top 20 applications, including the streaming music service Pandora and two versions of the popular game Angry Birds, represented similar usage by both men and women. 

Women also used Twitter slightly more than their male counterparts, with 16.5 percent as against 13.4. The new networking site Google + had more male users at 15.8 percent versus 7.2 percent. The second most popular site was Gmail, equally used by both men (75.5 percent) and women (73.4 percent). Google Maps took third place for women, while Google Search nabbed that spot for men. Facebook and YouTube rounded out the top five for men, while Google Search and YouTube were among the top for women users. 

Neilson stated in a blog post, "Outside of social media, applications like Amazon's Kindle and Words With Friends showed higher active reach among women, while applications like Quickoffice Pro and the Amazon Appstore had higher active reach among male Android smartphone owners." 

And despite the stereotype that men don't like asking for directions, they seemed pretty comfortable using Google Maps, which has 77 percent active reach among men compared to 71.8 percent among women," he added.

Google reveals a Developer website for Google+ Api

Today i got a mail that..Google has just started a developer website for Google+ Api.
Greetings developers,

Thank you for showing your interest in the Google+ platform on our developer interest form. We promised to let you know when we had more details to share. Well, that time has come...

Today, we’re launching the first of the Google+ APIs. This initial API release is focused on public data only — it lets you read information that people have shared publicly on Google+. Read our blog post for more details.

Also, we’re happy to introduce a new Google+ developers site. This will be the place to go for our policies, terms, discussions with other developers, access to documentation, tools that make development on the Google+ platform easier and more fun, and of course, the place where announcements concerning new releases will be made.

We’re looking forward to seeing what you build with the API. Today is just the beginning, and your work will affect what comes next, so go ahead and get started.

Happy coding!

- The Google+ platform team
Google+ Platform for developers

The Google+ project brings the nuance and richness of real-life sharing to software. The Google+ platform brings that nuance and richness to all of the web. We started with Google’s own products, added the +1 button for site owners and content publishers, and introduced games from a handful of partners. That’s just the beginning though — we want every one of you who builds applications to be able to include rich sharing, identity, and conversations in your app. Today, we’re taking the next step on that journey by launching the first of the Google+ APIs.

China renews Google's operating licence

Google China
China said that it has renewed Google's licence to operate in the world's largest online market, after the US company last year moved its Chinese search engine overseas in protest over censorship.

The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology named Google's China website operator, Beijing Guxiang Information Technology Co. Ltd., as one of 137 firms whose licences were renewed following adjustments in their operations.

The ministry had ordered the adjustments after some firms had changed shareholding structures without official permission, provided services beyond their approved business range or had lax information security controls.

The ministry, which posted the license renewals on its website, did not specify the kind of changes individual companies had to make.

Google spokeswoman for China Marsha Wang confirmed to AFP that the company had been granted the licence renewal.

"We have passed the 2011 annual assessment (of the licence)," she said.

This means Google's Internet content provider licence in China has been extended for one more year, she said.

Google said in March last year it would no longer bow to government censors and effectively shut down its Chinese search engine, re-routing mainland users to its uncensored site in Hong Kong.

Google has maintained that such an approach complied with Chinese law. 

Description about Google China :   

Google China was founded in 2005 and was originally headed by Kai-Fu Lee a former Microsoft executive and the founder in 1998 of Microsoft Research Asia.Microsoft sued Google and Kai-Fu Lee for the move, but reached a confidential settlement. Google's Beijing based office was initially located at NCI Tower.

In 2005, a Chinese-language interface was developed for the website. In Jan 2006, Google launched its China-based search page with results subject to censorship by the Chinese government.

The Beijing office was moved to Tsinghua Science Park in early 2006. The newest office has been in use since September 2006. It is a 10-floor building located in Tsinghua Science Park, near the south gate of Tsinghua University.

In Mar 2009, China blocked access to Google's YouTube site; access to other Google online services is denied to users on an ad hoc basis.

On September 4, 2009, after four years leading Google China, Kai-Fu Lee announced his surprise departure to start a venture fund amid debate about the Chinese government's censorship policies and Google's decreasing share to rival Baidu.

In Jan 2010, Google announced that they and other US tech companies had been hacked and that Google is no longer willing to censor searches in China and may pull out of the country.

Google's cloud does more with less,checkout Google Green

Google Green...

Google've worked hard to reduce the amount of energy our services use. In fact, to provide you with Google products for a month—not just search, but Google+, Gmail, YouTube and everything else they have to offer—our servers use less energy per user than a light left on for three hours. And, because they’ve been a carbon-neutral company since 2007, even that small amount of energy is offset completely, so the carbon footprint of your life on Google is zero.

They’ve learned a lot in the process of reducing our environmental impact, so they’ve added a new section called “The Big Picture” to our Google Green site with numbers on our annual energy use and carbon footprint.

They started the process of getting to zero by making sure our operations use as little energy as possible. For the last decade, energy use has been an obsession. They’ve designed and built some of the most efficient servers and data centers in the world—using half the electricity of a typical data center. Our newest facility in Hamina, Finland, opening this weekend, uses a unique seawater cooling system that requires very little electricity.

Whenever possible, They use renewable energy. We have a large solar panel installation at our Mountain View campus, and we’ve purchased the output of two wind farms to power our data centers. For the greenhouse gas emissions they can’t eliminate, they purchase high-qualitycarbon offsets.

But they’re not stopping there. By investing hundreds of millions of dollars in renewable energy projects and companies, we’re helping to create 1.7 GW of renewable power. That’s the same amount of energy used to power over 350,000 homes, and far more than what their operations consume.

Finally, Their products can help people reduce their own carbon footprints. The study (PDF) we released yesterday on Gmail is just one example of how cloud-based services can be much more energy efficient than locally hosted services helping businesses cut their electricity bills.

New Chrome Extension to +1 on any website

The Google +1 button lets you vote your recommendation of a website.
Since a lot of sites haven't added the +1 button, a Google Chrome extension adds one on.
The extension, conveniently titled Google +1 Button is available on the Chrome Web Store. Just like sites which have enabled the +1 button, sites you have +1'ed show a blue button.

As Google informs on the Chrome extension's page, your browsing history is sent to Google's servers. However, "Google doesn’t keep a persistent record of your browsing history as part of the process of showing you a +1 button or otherwise use the fact that you personally have visited a page with the +1 button. Google may keep some information about your visit, usually for about two weeks, to maintain and debug its systems," explains Google.
Google has also unveiled the button for mobile. The Google Plus button is now available for browsing on Android and iOS devices. Specifically, this includes iOS 4.0+ and Android 2.1+ mobile web browsers.
The +1 button will be used by Google to re-order how websites are ranked by search engines. A higher ranking site is more visible in Google search results - it'll appear as a result ahead of other sites in searching. It's also Google's way of competing with the Twitter's Tweet button and the ubiquitous Facebook’s Like. A +1 recommendation can be shared in Google Plus , Google's social network.

Changes to the sign-in pages of Google products:

You may have noticed that the pages where you sign in to Google products like Gmail, YouTube, and Google Docs look a bit different. These changes are part of a larger redesign of Google products.

Below are some frequently asked questions about the visual changes to Google sign-in pages.
  1. How can I tell if I’m on the actual Google sign-in page?
    The Google sign-in page is a secure page, and you should see a lock icon in the address bar before the URL. You can also check the URL of the page, and make sure it says either or If you’re still not sure whether you’re on the actual sign-in page, just type directly into your address bar, and sign in from there.

  2. I don’t see any difference. Where can I get the new sign-in page?
    At the bottom of your sign-in page, you might see the option to preview our new look. Once you click the link, the new sign-in page will become your default sign in page across all Google products that currently have the new design enabled. For a limited time, you'll be able to switch back to the old look by clicking a link at the bottom.

  3. Why am I seeing different sign-in pages for different products?
    Since we’re still in the process of making changes, not all products will immediately use the new sign-in page.

  4. Why do I sometimes see the old sign-in pages?
    Even if you’ve already seen the new sign-in page, the old one might come up again if you switch browsers, use a different Internet Protocol (IP) address, or sign in to a Google product that hasn’t started using the new sign-in page.

  5. Will my bookmarks for Google sign-in pages still work?
    Yes, your bookmarks should still work at the same URL as before. None of the design changes should affect any of the personalized settings you’ve made to your Google Account or to your browser.

  6. I don’t like the new design, can I switch back?
    For a limited time, you can switch back to the old version of the sign-in page by clicking the link at the bottom of the page. However, eventually this change will be permanent and you will not be able to switch to the old look.

  7. Where can I report problems or feedback regarding the new design?To send us your comments on the new design, you can fill out our feedback form.
