Something weird is going on with Google

Something weird is sure going on with Google. In particular, that little green bar in the Google Toolbar called the Google PageRank. Yet again, there was another Google drop just when everyone was talking, dissing and cussing each other about the sudden crackdown on web directories and well-known, developed web directories that were missing from the Google SERPs. Fortunately my web directories escaped unscathed but I cannot say the same for two of my blogs, Critical Thoughts and Noorullah Online. Both dropped their PR and now Critical Thoughts is a PR3 (when just a few months ago it was a PR5!) and Noorullah Online, a blog which I bought a few months back, is now a PR2 (from PR4 previously).

Sigh. No time to worry about it I guess. At least only two were affected, none of my other sites suffered a drop, which I am thankful for.

    1. It seems ‘clean’ websites (without TLA) are doing well. I’ve had 2 of my new blogs go up from PR 0 to PR 4. They don’t have anything on them (not even good content!) except a couple of posts and adsense.

    2. (Background information)
      I’ve lived near the duke of hamilton mausoleum nearly all my life.
      I’m 16 years of age
      I was walking with the dog

      (What happened)

      I was walking the dog around the duke of hamilton mausoleum without a single care…I’ve gotten used to it.

      But I go to Esporta (Local Health Club) at night time and I pass the duke of hamilton mausoleum and get really scared.

      It’s like some lights are calling to me.

      Normally I get scared and run away.

      but today was different.

      It was day time.

      (What did I see?)

      I walked along the fence ( The council put a fence around the duke of hamilton mausoleum to prevent more vandalism)

      and let my dog of the leash.

      I went to the other side of the duke of hamilton mausoleum and saw a few things.

      There was a wall about 30 metres from me and it was all vandalised.
      I went to take a closer look originally thinking it’d be some sort of power supply.
      Boy was I wrong.

      The closer I got there, the more scary it had become.

      I saw two signs on there.

      A “LADIES” side

      A “GENTLEMEN” side

      The “LADIES” side was all bolted up but I looked closely at the lock and realised, you could just take out a screwdriver and take it out.
      but when I heard a repetitive banging Noise, I started to get really interested.
      I looked at the roof and it was torn apart.

      but when I went to the “GENTLEMEN” side, that was where the Noise came from.

      (God, I’m getting nervous now as I speak)

      It looked like the door was forced open and the door was just hanging on.

      I was sweating and scared but that was not going to stop me.

      I went inside it and it turns out to be a toilet.

      There were three toliets in there but…

      (*Scratches neck*)

      two of them were bolted locked.

      but the other one was open.

      I looked inside thinking it’d be some sort of smelly thing in there.

      but it was actually a dead cat.

      ————————————–…
      At this moment, I wanted to get out as soon as possible but then I looked back
      ————————————–…
      I ran back to where I started off but I started going somewhere else thinking I’d see something new.

      I was right.

      In this link I’ll show you a Google map of what I saw

      ————————————–…
      (my description of it)

      it was an old building but had a lot of potensional if someone transformed into some sort of house.

      it was rust in colour but clearly marked with grafitti

      There were 4 holes on the building.
      The door had a metal lock
      but when I went to look inside the holes.
      I saw total blackness execpt for a statue inside.

      ————————————–…
      Can someone help me by telling me what this mysterious building was?

    3. When i was changing my pad, i saw something that looked like uterine lining..a big piece with something called a “chocolate cyst” on it(google it) and it really scared me because i dont know what it is..i had sex yesterday for the first time in 4 months too if that has anything to do with it

    4. My google is fine on my ipod touch but on my laptop, something weird is going on. Is this a virus? What can I do????

    5. Everytime I search for certain subjects on google.com I end up at the yellow pages or something weird and it had nothing to do with what I was searching. Any Suggestions?
      Again my searches are UNRELATED to the yellow pages, ie. if I search for avg free I get the yellow pages not avg as I searched.

    6. last night i was lying in bed with my lights on reading. i started to get really tired and as i was putting away my book i just started zoning out, staring at a wall for no reason. then all of a sudden i couldnt move. at all. i started breathing EXTREMELY heavily, and i tried to move my right arm but it felt like it was moving really slowly.. like crazy slowly… i could move to look at it so idk if it actually moved at all…. i went on brathing like this unable to move for about 5-6 ish minutes but it felt like way longer. (i have a clock by my bed) just after the episode, i was really extremely sleepy but i managed to stay awake. i have been looking into it on google and on other peoples questions but none of them seem the same.. so far ive come up with 3 possibilities:
      1 sleep paralysis
      2 night terrors
      3 i dreamed it… @_@
      sorry its kinda long.. i just like to go into lots of detail and i would appreciate it if you would go into just as much detail with your answer
      P.S. i just realized watever it was it was probably stress induced… my father died recently and my sister was diagnosed with some things im not going to give away on here for her privacy @_@ ….. P.S.S. im 13 -.-

    7. WTF? Am I paranoid to think that Microsoft is doing something weird? I got this new laptop a couple months ago, came with
      Win7 and suddenly after using google chrome browser very nicely, today it can’t access the internet but Internet Explorer can.

      What’s going on and how do I fix this?

    8. look at these coordinates in Google Maps:
      37.638148,-115.785431

      what are those things? i see them all over that area?
      are they farms? water reservoirs? what?

      they are not errors with the satellite image because the surrounding scenery seems to go around them, not through them.

    9. We where making out and he lifted up my top and felt my boobs and then he pulled my pants down and started to feel my vagina so i pulled his pants down and felt his penis and played with his balls and we did that for about 30 mins and then we stoped and then I told him that i am a BI and he said i love you anyway and we kissed for a while and when he stoped he said i am to and before i was dating you i had a boyfriend.
      but i had a weird feeling in me witch made me put all my clothes on and go home so i said i have to go now we are having people over for dinner and i went home.
      I called my friend ( who is a BI aswell ) and i told her to come over and we talked for a while and then she said hay i know what will make you feel good and she leant in and kissed me it made me feel so good that i said to her lets go all the way tonight so and she said i have wanted to for so long so we striped of and layed on top of each other i was feeling quite odd and i wanted to stop but keep going after about an hour of doing lots of different things to each other she said lets watch some porn witch at that time i dident know what it was
      so she typed in lesbian porn onto google and i soon found out what it was we were watching that at the same time as everything else and then we decided to stop for a while and do stuff naked so we played games nood we played twister and just dance on the wii we had a fun night but my question is does this mean i am a lesbian now that that i should breake up with my bf?
      oh and also i am on my sisters account because i forgot my password to mine and btw i am 14
      My sis dosnt care she knows i am on her a account i asked her

    10. I have Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox and sometimes it just redirects random page like rapidshare and stuff like that to this(obviously fake because it looks like Computer from windows 7 and i have Windows XP and i have 3 partitions.
      http://i594.photobucket.com/al.....1293898036
      or some other random ad.
      And something else odd happened.Ads appeared on facebook and they weren’t there 2 days ago so i’m not sure is it my browsers fault or facebook now have ads.
      How do i fix this?It’s really annoying.

    11. My computer is acting weird. Everytime i search something on google and click on the link to it, it goes to a webstie that doesn’t exist, a website with “nba net” typed into the google search bar, and one time it went to a virus prevention scan running on my computer. Sometimes it goes to ad websites too. Is this an ad infection on my browser or my entire computer?

    12. I reluctantly installed the newest version of internet explorer, and this meant getting google update. So now google tries to guess what you’re going to type while you type it? It’s driving me crazy.

      How do I disable this?

      It’s gotten to the point were I’ve tried to type faster than google can guess, and its making my computer lag… 🙁

      Thanks!

    13. Hello,
      I want to know if somebody scrapped my website content. Then will google identify who copied from whom ? and do google consider my website has duplicate content ? will my site penalized ?

    14. ok something weird is going on with my toolbar….so when I type in something the toolbar save my search but now .any new search queries that I type no longer get saved…..the limt that I type is 10-12 search save from the toolbar someone tell me how I fix this.

    15. From a technical point of view how Google in different ways can (or could) gather information about users and use it to customize advertisements, both at their own and others’ sites. What kinds of information can be gathered?

    17. Google has started displaying a location under the search bar to the left. There’s an option to change the location, or to let Google auto-detect, but I don’t want a location displayed at all. How do I stop Google from showing what it thinks is my location under the search bar on the left?

    18. i looked at the history and its something like redtube? or something. he has some weird things on here so im scared to check the website but it has like a black R with a red back and its on google when you open it up too. how the heck do i make it go back to the regular google logo?!
      please help!
      its not the giant logo its the small one up by the tool bar thingy whatever its called. where you type in the address your looking for

    19. The blackout has forced a question: If Google, or another high-usage portion of the internet, were to change their policies to be more active in voicing their opinions about public matters in ways which you were either for or against, would they effectively have too much power over our democratic process?
      Google can do other things to protest besides shutting down, however.

    20. It never did this before but whe I search images on google it throws all the picture on one page. I’ll scroll down and a little caption will show “page 2” “page 3” etc. What happen to the regular “Next”button? This new feature lags, and the images show up so slow, and scrolling skips pages and it takes ages to find an image.

      I know google has a new feature called instant search – turned it off. Went to picture search settings – no luck.

    21. A random girl added me on facebook and I didn’t know who she was so I messaged her saying do i know you? and this is how it went…

      Michele: do i know you?

      Cathy: yah we met at camp hope

      Michele: i never went to camp hope

      Cathy- oh thats funny. I thought you were my friend from
      Camp Hope, Michele C. well camp hope is a place that helps ppl
      get over their lost loved ones. in september of 2002 i lost my hamster,
      Chunky Dimples, to cancer. I was extremely upset and i just couldn’t stop crying. The first day I was there I met Michele and she was there because her grandpa died of cancer. We had so much in common and we bonded instantly. We braided each others hair, painted each other’s nails, talked about boys, well girls for her cuz she was homosexual but I told her straight away that I didnt swing that way. Aside from the occasional awkward grabbing of my ***, tity pokes, and tickeling my tummy while i was napping, the friendship was really fun. I remember one time, we were all sitting around the campfire roasting marshmallows and dipping them in loads of creamy, delishous, milk chocolately goodness and a spark flew out of the fire and onto me. Michele stayed with me the entire time while the rest went to get the paramedics. The next day, with half my left breast(surves me right for wearing my bikini at the bonfire) covered in burnt scabs, she had no problem applying the ointment. Now that i think of it i thought she was being nice but it might have been her homosexual tendancies kicking in. ******* ****. Regardless, I still loved her as my best friend. Another day, we caught Reverend Horton with the camp hope mascot, Wilmer the goat, in the barn doing something weird. Then we went on google and searched him and he came up as a wanted phedefile. We didnt know what that meant but we loved Reverand Horton so we were not about to turn him into the police. He had problems with Michele because homosexuals are damned to hell. But he was always very nice to me. I remember all the kids wouldn’t share the dolls becuase I was fat and ugly. When I went to his office crying, he was like” its ok sweety, I have a special doll here and dont tell anyone else about it”. He said “I keep it in a special place so nobody else except for you can play with it.” It was a very good hiding place, nobody would ever think to look in his pants. Even though he told me not to tell anyone, I still told Michele cuz i knew she wouldnt be jelous. So that day when we peaked into the barn, i was very upset becuase he let the goat play with my doll. I didnt say anything though because if i didnt have that doll, ide have none to play with. Although I did prefer my dolls to look like me with dresses on and stuff, i really didnt mind that this one was black and cryed out of its one eye ontop of its bald head. Sometimes Reverend Horton would make me lick the tears off and said the tears would make me pretty and skinny and make all the boys like me. But I can never play with anyother boy’s dolls he said. The other boys dolls had no connection with god, ony his did. Good times , good times. So anyway im so glad i found you on facebook! i havent seen you since that summer at camp hope!!

      What should I do? I feel bad for her… I feel like I should recommend therapy but I don’t want her to feel insulted. Should I accept her friend request and be friends with her? She probably just needs a friend and someone to talk to. What should i do???

    22. How does Google, with it’s innovative culture (personal 20% time) and creative employees, make sure it’s employees remain loyal and do not run off with a great idea and embark on their own entrepreneurial start-up? If an employee has a great proprietary idea, is the idea his or Google’s? I don’t think confidentiality agreements and non-complete contracts are enough to prevent this from happeing. Anyone have an idea?
