Backlinks Reorganized – Internal Vs External

Now you can identify the backlinks to your website more easily, which links are actually from your site vs links from other sites.

Google Webmaster Tools used to identify the links in two categories:

  • Links from within your site (Internal Links), i.e., only those links that started with your site's exact URL &
  • Links coming from other sites (External Links)

For the site,, links from would be categorized as internal, but links from or would be categorized as external links.

This also implies for the 'www' and 'non-www' version for the website.

In the recent update, if you add either or as a site, links from both the www and non-www versions of the domain will be categorized as internal links. This also implies to include other subdomains, since many people who own a domain also own its subdomains—so links from or will also be categorized as internal links for

If you own a site that’s on a subdomain (such as or in a subfolder ( and don’t own the root domain, you’ll still only see links from URLs starting with that subdomain or subfolder in your internal links, and all others will be categorized as external links. We’ve made a few backend changes so that these numbers should be even more accurate for you.

Note that, if you own a root domain like or, your number of external links may appear to go down with this change; this is because, as described above, some of the URLs we were previously classifying as external links will have moved into the internal links report. Your total number of links (internal + external) should not be affected by this change.

Google+ Now Opens for All

Google+ is the first social service launched by Google that's actually successful.

Its 3-months since the inception of Google's social networking tool: Google Plus. Google+ is now available to anyone who has a Google account; it no longer requires invites.

Vic Gundotra, Google’s Senior Vice President of Engineering, posted the following message to the Google Blog announcing open sign-ups:

For the past 12 weeks we've been in field trial, and during that time we've listened and learned a great deal. We're nowhere near done, but with the improvements we've made so far we're ready to move from field trial to beta.

You can just visit Google home page for joining Google Plus (as in image below). Once you click the link, you will be re-directed to Google Plus registration page. Furthermore if you roll over the blue arrow, the following popup appears: “You’re invited to join Google+.”

Google Plus has improved a lot, more quickly than any other Google product ever launched.

Google added support for 

– Hangouts in the Android app and added the option to broadcast a Hangout (for limited users as of now). You can preview by clicking “Try Hangouts with extras”: screensharing, sketchpad, Google Docs integration and named hangouts “for when you want to join or create a public hangout about a certain topic”.

– The search box is now more useful because you can use it to find posts from your friends and from other Google+ users. Google also lets you restrict your results to people and save your search.

A Comscore report from August estimated that “in just one month, Google+ has captured 25 million visitors”. Now when there is no restriction on the invites, the number will certainly grow.

The New and Improved Google Plus (+1) Button

The +1 buttons are used by the visitors to recommend your content on Google Search along with their Google Profiles. Clicking the +1 button is a great way to highlight content for others when they search on Google. The +1 button comes with further more inprovements,

1) Share Links: The +1 button now lets visitors share links to your pages on Google+. If someone wants to start a conversation about your content, it’s easy for them to do so. Now, Google+ users can share webpages with their circles, directly from the +1 button. From there you can comment, choose a circle and share.


2) Snipets: Now you can use +Snippets to customize the name, image and description that appear when your content is shared.

When you share content from the +1 button, you’ll notice that we automatically include a link, an image and a description in the sharebox. This is called as “+snippets,”.

+Snippets let you put your best face forward by customizing exactly what appears when your content is shared.

For example, if you’re running a movie review site, you might want visitors to share posts containing the title, movie poster, and a brief synopsis:

3) Inline Annotations: The new inline annotations help increase engagement after users see a friend’s recommendation right on your page.

Now, when a person visits a page that someone they know has +1’d, they can see a name and face reminding them to pay special attention to your content. Here’s how it looks:

To add inline annotations, you need to update your +1 button code. Visit the configuration tool , select ‘inline’ from the ‘Annotation’ menu, and grab a new snippet of code. 

The new features (sharing and +snippets) are rolling out globally over the next week. You can try the new +1 button now, by joining Google+ Platform Preview. Once you're part of the Preview, just visit a site with the +1 button (like Rotten Tomatoes) and +1 the page. 

Twitter Rolls Out 'Photo' & 'Location' Sharing Service

Twitter added a native image sharing option and location sharing in the new Twitter interface, to all users.

You can now start seeing a camera and location sharing button, at the far left of the status update box, beckoning to upload an image and share the location of your tweet. You can upload images to your tweets directly, and can mention its location as well.

You can choose an image from your desktop under 3 MB and it will get embedded to your Twitter status like below. If you feel like you’ve made a mistake you can just click on the X to delete and pick another image.

This is how it looks,

Ever had something you wanted to share (“fireworks!”, “party!”, “ice cream truck!”, or “quicksand…”) that would be better with a location? By turning on this feature, you can include location information like neighborhood, town, or exact point when you tweet.

When you tweet with a location, Twitter stores that location. You can switch location on/off before each Tweet and always have the option to delete your location history

You can upload images (3MB) of any dimension and Twitter will automatically scale the image so that it fits properly on the display pane of new Twitter interface.

Watch the following video or head over to the help center to learn more about Twitter’s own photo upload feature:

No doubts Twitter wants to engage deeply with its audience and is now more serious on providing features people enjoy using.
