Business as usual

Why should the fact that you were chair of a financial institution which failed and has had to be recapitalised by the state rule you out of immediately becoming chair of another company? Eh? Richard Burrows' appointment as chair at BAT, having only stood down from the Bank of Ireland a month or so back, seems to be more evidence that it's back to business as usual (At least Andy Hornby waited a few months before getting a new job). I take my hat off to Standard Life for at least querying the appointment.

Surveys conducted by reliable sources reveal that around ninety percent of the web traffic ( the request- response process taking place between server and client) is predominantly derived based on the list populated by search engines. In simple terms , people visit uncommon websites only if the search engine projects them at the top of its listing. This gives no wonder as in today’s world life has become mechanical and shortage of time is the problem faced by almost all the illiterate people who have the knowledge of browsing the net to look up for information. In particular most of the users irrespective of the geographical boundaries do not have patience to even have glance at the names of websites displayed beyond first two or three pages of Google. So pushing forward your website so as to get displayed within those top twenty or thirty website list will enhance your prospects of earning money through advertisements greatly. For a search engine that is looking into the future at its early stages, the relevance of results is very indispensable in creating a rigid platform for ad revenues. So you cannot use short cut methods such as canvassing the management of search engines by paying an amount as bribe or by resorting to cheap strategies like just typing the important keywords hundreds or thousands of times as an ardent devotee of God would write the name of his favorite God repetitively in a paper to please his God. The search engines reportedly use complex and robust algorithms which are intelligent in providing ranking to WebPages in a wise manner after a thorough in-depth analysis. Some people few years ago used to create ‘spam websites ‘ – the ones whose purpose behind the creation is to promote the ranking of some other websites. Google is cautious that if it detects a new website for a few months it will not alter its original rankings. During the intermittent time it checks whether the website is intended for long term.
