In this infographic, you will find a study by Wordstream which tells you where’s Google making its money and the top 20 most expensive keywords in Google AdWords advertising. And, if you understand about those keywords you may get ideas how to target them in your search campaigns.
Now, we can go to and explore the deep seas (plus ocean floor) with the new update of Google Earth Maps for Oceans. The areas now visible on Google Earth include the huge Hudson Canyon off New York City, the Wini Seamount near Hawaii, and the sharp-edged 10,000-foot-high Mendocino Ridge off the U.S Pacific Coast.
This time, diving equipment and certificate are unnecessary.
The future timeline/roadmap according to Google search results:
CNET was found hints inside Google’s source code. These signs are told us that company programmers have begun building a tablet version of Chrome OS.
- A “virtual keyboard” with a number of keys drawn in SVG so they can be shown by a browser.
- A variety of moves to make the browser more touch-friendly, for example by increasing the space around items to make it easier to select them with a touch interface.
- A revamped new-tab page (which people see when they open a new, blank tab) that’s “optimized for touch.”
- The orientation of the new-tab page will change when the device is rotated, according to the new-tab page’s coding annotations.
- The CSS code for the new-tab page also indicates that programmers would like to be able to move icons around the page, preferably with animation.

Highly available cloud storage is often implemented with complex, multi-tiered distributed systems built on top of clusters of commodity servers and disk drives. Sophisticated management, load balancing and recovery techniques are needed to achieve high performance and availability amidst an abundance of failure sources that include software, hardware, network connectivity, and power issues. While there is a relative wealth of failure studies of individual components of storage systems, such as disk drives, relatively little has been reported so far on the overall availability behavior of large cloud-based storage services. We characterize the availability properties of cloud storage systems based on an extensive one year study of Google’s main storage infrastructure and present statistical models that enable further insight into the impact of multiple design choices, such as data placement and replication strategies. With these models we compare data availability under a variety of system parameters given the real patterns of failures observed in our fleet.
