Google has reportedly told CNET's News.com that no one from the company would speaking to CNET reporters for the next year, in response to a recent CNET article in which Google CEO Eric Schmidt was googled. The CNET report revealed a lot of personal information about Schmidt, including his home address, and was based on information that a reporter simply googled over half an hour's time. The point of the CNET story was to reveal the vast amounts of information, often very private and personal, that can be easily found through google searches today. In the wrong hands, be they criminals, government investigators, or vengefel ex-spouses or ex-business partners, revealing such information raises serious privacy concerns. Google has tried to be an unorthodox company, from the unusual spelling of its name to its coy IPO to its non-sequiter core value of “don’t be evil.”... (more)

Understanding Hyperlocal Advertising For Local Store Marketing

“Hyperlocal” has become a term used to describe advertising which is targeted through a web publication towards a specific consumer audience, in a very small geographic area. By using hyperlocal ads, your business can promote products and services to a local audience that is more likely to be interested. Since 2008, the search results have been showing maps and map listings (aka Local Business Listings). Searching no longer requires someone to add a city and state as part of their search term. The search engines know the locale of the person searching and based on that locale, they will display local results first before national results. This not only applies towards the map listings, but it includes websites. Websites identifying themselves for a specific geography will be included in the local results. Something I have discussed in recent years is the concept of ... (more)

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
