Google indexes the content inside an iframe

Perhaps you already know if Google does not index the content inside an iframe, so the comments from Disqus or Facebook is not indexed.

But now Google has started indexing the content inside an iframe, I realized this today when I checked the HTMLy blog demo, Danlogs.

The blogs using Disqus comments, and it turns out all the comments on the blog indexed by Google. A certainly good news for Disqus users.

For Facebook comments, I have not yet figured out its already indexed or not, but it should also being indexed because it uses an iframe as well.

The Unlinking Era

Some time ago Google has released a new algorithm that is "Penguin", if your website traffic decline may can be concluded if you are also affected by this new algorithm.

Common problems is because of keyword stuffing and bad backlinks. For keyword stuffing, sometimes we do not intend to do that, just because of our habit of writing. The most difficult to overcome is if we hit because of a bad backlinks.

There is an interesting comment from Webwork which is a moderator of WebmasterWorld.com:

Google has done more than any other entity to screw up natural linking. From instigating the era of automated guestbook / forum / webstats / blog link spamming (talk about link removal headaches), TO the era of the spamming of email link requests, TO the era of PR notice blasting, TO the era of NOT linking because linking might drain your "link juice", TO the no-follow era, TO the era of not even linking for money because paid links are EVIL, TO the era a link/site-bowling or link attacks, and now the era of unlinking. Stop the madness. This seemingly rational, pragmatic, intelligent, even necessary conversation - about how to deal with what Google says is unnatural links - needs to stop. Unlinking requests, as a business practice or mandated necessity, is simply a bridge too far.

Read the whole tread here.

Microsoft often blamed break the web with their browsers, and Google in the future may often blamed for broke the website owners with their algorithm.

Google fighting back with Google+

The dominance of Facebook in social media is very worrying, with 750 million users worldwide, Facebook is a very tough Google's rival. Previously Google was trying to make social networking sites like Orkut, but it failed to compete with Facebook.

To rival Facebook, Google released a new product that is Google+, and it seems these new product got a very good response from the users. Within two weeks, Google+ already used by more than 10 million users, or about 1.3% of Facebook users, and of course this is a serious threat to Facebook.

Facebook even has a real action to maintain their dominance by banned the Google+ ad on their site, an act that should not be done by companies like Facebook because it is not a wise action, it could even hurt themselves later.

The General Manager of co.cc have protested

Yesterday, James Kim as the General Manager of co.cc have protested via Webmaster Central Forum after he tried to contact the General Manager of Google but there was no reply regarding banned that have been imposed to the co.cc and all its subdomains.

Until now the debate is still ongoing, and no single employee of Google who has replied. You can read and follow the debate here.
