Today's Gmail problems

Tuesday, September 01, 2009 1:15 PM

We know many of you are having trouble accessing Gmail right now — we are too, and we definitely feel your pain. We don't usually post about minor issues here (the Apps status dashboard and the Gmail Help Center are usually where this kind of information goes). Because this is impacting so many of you, we wanted to let you know we're currently looking into the issue and hope to have more info to share here shortly. & More


Google Translate now speaks 51 languages

Posted: 31 Aug 2009 09:01 AM PDT

We spend a lot of time thinking about how information travels around the globe. After all, there are Googlers living and working in dozens of countries — and we're pretty sure our products are used in many more. So we're familiar with the need to translate information across borders, and we've been working hard to build the technology to enable you to do just that. Today, we're excited to announce that we've added nine new languages to Google Translate: Afrikaans, Belarusian, Icelandic, Irish, Macedonian, Malay, Swahili, Welsh and Yiddish. That means that Google Translate now supports 51 languages and 2550 language pairs — including all 23 official EU languages. & More


Publishers-Get Found

One of the common phrases you hear in Affiliate Marketing is that this is "a relationship business." That's a broad statement; and at Google Affiliate Network we ask what does that actually mean? We believe it's our job to help both publishers and advertisers create effective relationships through highly productive partnerships. We take our role in facilitating these relationships seriously. As the holiday shopping season approaches, I want to alert our publishers to a tool in the Google Affiliate Network interface that can help you establish more and better relationships with our advertisers.

Earlier this summer we launched the "Opportunity Center." Advertisers use this tool to find new publishers and to identify opportunities for growth.
