A Google PR satire

I am sure everyone is anxious about the coming Google PR update, which is expected to be in this week. Already there are many false alarms and what I would call “PR anxiety disorders” posts in major webmaster forums such as Digital Point and V7N (yours truly included). To celebrate the ocassion, here is a funny cartoon which parodises the PR anxiety disorder.


The cartoon is not drawn by me, I found it in the DP forum. Author of the cartoon is at the bottom right of the image.


    1. 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?

    2. I do not have google account or nor do I sign into google but I do use Google to search bar.

      So all this talk about google privacy policy ONLY apply if you sign into google or not???????????/

    3. 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 ?

    4. k i m in a very complicated situation.
      So i type mi yahoo username into google and mi yahoo answers profile pops up….and a couple other accounts i made with other things but i havent used. and the questions that i answered also come up. so im trying to get that stuff outta google but i got no idea how to……ANY HELP?

    5. Did the google phone come to Verizon Wireless? Is it the HTC DROID ERIS and/or the MOTOROLA DROID? Are there several versions for the google phone? Is the google phone different for each cellphone network? How much is it? I heard that is was coming to Verizon Wireless in the spring but I am not sure. If you know anything, please answer. I really want to know when the google phone is coming to Verizon Wireless and if it came out already.

    6. I just got a motorola cliq and have seen articles all over advertising the new update to google maps allowing navigation but when i go to google mobile it says to access the android market through my phone and download the latest google maps but when i do that google maps does not appear in the market. Is this becuase i am not on the Droid or is there some other problem that is not allowing me to find this new update?

    7. I was just wondering how can Google get profits by providing us a free researching system. We pay nothing and the google allows us to search free. How does it work??
      Thank you

    8. Or do you think Google has good intentions or a bit of both?

      Keep in mind, Google does not make much money in China and this kind of publicity will probably increase revenue better than regular Chinese annual revenues for the company.

    9. Please, I really need help to get back to normal google. I want to get rid of google chrome immediately! I don’t want to just change my homepage back to google but the whole internet as well. Thanks!

    10. I know that google changed its logo on .com for american veterens day. Why didn’t they change it for ENGLISH Remembrance Day?

    11. 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.

    12. Work recently “upgraded” our software and nobody, including the IT department, can download and install programs. I had previously used google sync quite happily to merge my work and personal calendars and view both at work and on my iphone. Is there any way to get this functionality without google sync?

    13. I know that google changed its logo on .com for american veterens day. Why didn’t they change it for ENGLISH Remembrance Day?

    14. I want to play the google doodle that was on yesterday as in the google guitar, but I can’t find it anywhere so can someone post a link for me to play it? Or if there isn’t one can someone post a link for something similar? Thanks šŸ™‚

    15. When I search for images on google images or most other search engines, the results tend to show up as just white boxes or a broken symbol, I have google chrome and internet explorer but both just show the white boxes most of the time. please help.

    16. Please help me how to solve this problem. I find that when using Google with many users in an office, google blocks us. I can’t use Google search anything now. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

    17. I have a list of 100 keywords in Google Adwords. I want to know if there is a program that I can use that will tell me what page in Google each of those 100 appears (or does not appear). So for example if I have keywords: dog, dog collar, and dog food, I want to know what pages in google they appear: ie pages 3, 15, and 99.


    18. I heard google bought a new satellite or something so you can see anything “bigger than a shopping bag” with amazing clarity. When is this going to be implemented?

    19. 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?

    20. Hello everybody
      I have got 3 blogs and 2 websites.Can i have google adsense ads in my all of these blogs and websites ? Whether i have to apply for different google adsense accounts or a single account will work for all these websites and blogs.

      Thank You.

    21. Hi,

      I have recently launched a new website. I just want to know how long does it take for Google to recognize backlinks to my site. I am currently generating backlinks by posting on different forums, blog commenting and directory submission. It has been a week now but still there are 0 backlinks to my site according to Google.

      Yahoo is relatively quicker than Google in recognizing backlinks. Does anyone have any idea how long does it take for Google to recognize backlinks to my website?

    22. My Google toolbar disappeared and I have to download it evertime I go online. My Yahoo toolbar always opens so I would like to import my bookmarks into Yahoo favorites. I have tried all the tips on the Google help area to make the toolbar reappear and none of them work. I am using Comcast Cable as my internet provider if that makes a difference.

    23. We saw the google car near our house in Manchester last October, but on google street view, you can’t see our house! They’ve only put up the pictures for some of Manchester.

      When are they planning on filling in the gaps?

    24. I have about 2,000 subscribers for my youtube videos, and someone I know mentioned something about using Google Adsense on youtube, how does this all work and what do I have to do to get started?

    25. Is there a way that I can put different key words for different menus of each page?

      I have a website with many menu bars. Somehow whenever I click different sections, all the same google ads appear. Each menu has a different characters, so I would like to customize ads for each sections. Is this possible to have different google ads for each page? Thanks.

    26. 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.

    27. I am abroad and far away from my home country but the ads that I get on Google or Facebook are in my language. How do Google or other websites know where I am from and what language I speak? I have even registered my Facebook account with my new location in a different country!

    28. I recently tried googling my full name and I saw my picture.
      It was a photo I posted on facebook.
      I want to remove this photof rom google.. How do i do that?
      By the way, i removed the picture from facebook, but it still apears in google images..
      And why out of all the pictures of my on facebook, google chose that particular one to have in their image results?

    29. Hi,

      I want to be able to store a Google spreadsheet in a Gmail folder so that it can be accessed and updated from within Gmail- rather than having to come out of Gmail and go into Google docs.

      I’d be grateful for any tips on how to do this.

      Thank you.

    30. 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?

    31. Has anyone ever check out the discrimination policy of the New York Times?
      Someone needs to go over and check the discrimination policy of the New York Times.
      Freedom of speech is one thing. I think they need a Sensitivity program.

      Americans screamed when people burned the flag and they have one in the fireplace. Americans screamed when people wore the flag as a diaper. So I ask you what is so funny?
      Yes, my bad. The NEW YORKER
      the magazine. Not the news paper.

      If I werer them, I’d be screaming also.
      And Please Show some intelligence.
      Not your shoe size.

    32. Just tell how Google got enough money to buy youtube and how the two owner became billionaires?

      Thanks for your help.

    33. I’m curious only because it seems to come extremely natrual and easy. Even taking off and landing. I’m only using a mouse for most of the controls but it seems as though the actual mechanical controls would make it much easier to “feel” what is going on. Or, is google just faking me out? Thank’s to any pilots out there who have tried the one on google!

    34. I really like using google, but every time I shut down, even though I change the default, and even remove the option of Yahoo!, I still end up getting yahoo search defaulted the next time I go onto google chrome. Please help?

    35. I definitely have anxiety disorders, and possibly some bipolar spectrum illness. If I have both, does that really mean I have two separate types of illnesses, or all they all really connected? Will I have to take a bunch of medications? I don’t know what to do anymore…and I’m not sure if I have bipolar or not.

    36. How do you know if someone is just an anxious person who worries a lot or if they have an anxiety disorder such as Generalized Anxiety?

      Is there a certain extent that sets them apart? When is it time to seek help?

    37. Is there a relationship between alcoholism in a family, and the development of anxiety disorders? I am just wondering how common it is to find both in a family? I suffer from an anxiety disorder, but there is also alcoholism in my family.

    38. Is this clinical or another area? I am thinking about trying to pursue graduate studies in anxiety disorders. What area is this?

    39. I was told not to long ago that I could possibly have an anxiety disorder. Any lists of symptoms or types of disorders would be great. thanks.
