Start Your Earnings with NeoBux!

this post is not related to google & google services. this is blog sponsor update

At NeoBux you get paid just by browsing our advertisers' websites.

Neobux is a pay-per-click membership site run by an internet marketer name Rezk that pays members to click on advertiser links and visit their websites for a certain length of time. Advertisers buy clicks to their websites and program members earn a share of the revenue when they visit these websites. There is also a referral system in place so members can build downlines and earn from them.

Detailed Overview

The Neobux program is one of many of these types of programs on the internet today. The way you make money as a member of this site is very simple. You click on links, visit advertiser websites, stay on them for a certain period of time, and you earn money for it. You refer others to the program, and you earn money when they click on websites too.

The amount of money that you earn from Neobux by clicking on one advertiser link and visiting the site is not much. The pay that you do get depends on your level of membership. There is a free level and a golden level. At the free level, you make $.01 to view a site for a standard period of time, and $.015 for viewing a site for an extended period of time. How long the period of time is depends on what the advertiser pays for. At the golden level the pay for those are $.01 and $.02 respectively. Neobux Golden members also earn more for their referrals' clicks than free members do. You can actually rent referrals each month from the site if you like, which could possibly increase your earnings.

The Neobux site can be a bit confusing at first. Content is very minimal, so you have to look around the site a bit to figure it all out. Once you join and can enter into your account area, it still looks pretty minimal, but eventually you find out where everything is.


A lot of these types of programs get many complaints, but that doesn't seem to be the case with Neobux. Most reports are that the company does indeed pay, and they pay in a timely manner. Nobody is claiming to get a lot of money from it, but that's not surprising. Ambitious members could conceivably make some extra spending money each month, which for some is a plus.

YouTube: One billion subscriptions and counting

Early on (we're talking '06 here, people!), the yellow subscribe button made its debut so the latest videos from your favorite channels could make a beeline to your inbox/eager eyes. Today, the button that's been immortalized as a throw cushion hits an important landmark: it's been clicked over one billion times. And who was the lucky channel to get that billionth hit? It was MachinimaSports, who are, not coincidentally, on our homepage on Friday.

In fact, there is so much subscription activity that there are over a billion subscription notification emails sent every week and 15 YouTube channels have crossed the one million subscriber mark: fred, nigahiga, kassemg, shanedawsonTV, shanedawsonTV2, smosh, universalmusicgroup, machinima, sxephil, mysteryguitarman, davedays, kevjumba, realannoyingorange, raywilliamjohnson, collegehumor and failblog.

So what's next for subscriptions? Turns out, we've got a spankin' new widget that any video-maker can embed on his/her website or blog. It lets people subscribe to your YouTube channel with a single click, without having to leave your site to log into YouTube or to confirm their subscription. The entire process happens in the widget.

Give it a try! All you need to do is embed the code below into the source code of your website or blog, in the same way you embed a YouTube video:

<iframe id="fr" src="[add YouTube Username here]" style="overflow: hidden; height: 105px; width: 300px; border: 0;" scrolling="no" frameBorder="0"></iframe>

And if all this is new to you, let us suggest you check out this video, in which dear Cuddles tells you all you need to know about subscriptions:

Google TV Giveaway: Who are all those 1000 Lucky Developers?

Amanda Surya, (Google TV Developer Relations Team) Say's

Google TV is now available in Best Buy and Sony Style stores across the nation, as well as online through We're excited that consumers are finally taking these out of the box and have been hearing a lot of positive early feedback. And while people may think that Google TV is great now, we can't wait for them to see what's coming.

First and foremost, as with Android for mobile, we'll continually push new system updates with new features and bug fixes as they become available. But just as important, we are focusing our efforts on empowering the developers of the world to make Google TV an even better experience, through websites that have been built with the TV screen in mind.

For users, better-looking and more interesting websites means that the overall Google TV experience is even better. We want to encourage a new generation of TV developers to come forward to make this vision a reality. Which is why, over the next few weeks, we're planning to give away 10,000 Google TV devices to help developers start building for TV.

This morning, we gave away more than 3,000 Google TV devices to attendees of the Adobe MAX conference. Additionally, we'll be reaching out to thousands of web developers in the Google Code community to offer them a free device. Finally, if you are a professional web developer who wants to help make the Google TV
experience even better and you don't happen to fall into one of those two groups, please
submit an entry to our Google TV Web Developer Promotion and include a short summary about the type of interesting website your company would like to create or optimize for Google TV. We're planning to select 2,500 winners from
those entries to receive a free Google TV device.

We can't wait to see the new sites people will build. Until then, check out some of the latest Spotlight sites that have just launched on Google TV. A few of our favorites include Net-A-Porter, which lets you watch runway videos and shop for high fashion; Meegenius, a place where you can read and customize children's books; TuneIn, a personal radio for your TV; and The Onion which always gives us a good laugh.

As we've always said, the coolest thing about Google TV is that we don't even know what the coolest thing about it will be. The experience is in the hands of its users and developers, and everyone is invited. Come play.

More flexible gmail in mobile safari!

Go to from your iPhone and you'll notice two improvements we've rolled out over the past few weeks. First, scrolling is snappier: the speed of scrolling reflects the speed of your swipe gesture. This is helpful for long conversations where a few quick flicks will get you to the information you need much faster than before. Second, the toolbars stay on screen while you're scrolling rather than moving down into view after each scroll. Being able to access your toolbars from any point on the page should make it easier to triage your email and move around the app.

If you use Gmail in your mobile browser a lot, you may have noticed that we recently tried several different variations of these buttons. We've iterated on the design and made improvements based on your feedback. If you have more suggestions, please post them in our forum or, if you use Twitter, mention #gmailmobile and we'll take a look. If you're a developer and are interested in learning about the Javascript and HTML techniques we used to do this, we'll post an article to in the coming weeks.

You can see these improvements by visiting from the browser of iPhone and iPod touch devices running iOS4 (English-only for now). And if you like Gmail in mobile Safari, make getting to it easier by tapping the "+" at the bottom of the screen and then "Add to Home Screen." (Don't see the new changes yet?

Google Donates $5 Million To Support Digital Journalism

from the article from Doug Caverly (WebProNews)
about the author: Doug is a staff writer for WebProNews. Visit WebProNews for the latest eBusiness news.

Some people like to argue that search engines are killing journalism, but if that's the case, Google at least deserves credit for trying to perform a sort of first aid.  Google announced this afternoon that it's donating $5 million to "encourage innovation in digital journalism."

Where $3 million of that sum will wind up is unknown at this point.  Google has only said that it's looking to fund one or more journalism projects not based in the U.S.  As for the other $2 million, it will go to the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

The Knight Foundation dates back to 1940.  Its name may sound familiar if you've watched many PBS shows, and a post on the Official Google Blog explained that the Knight Foundation "has a proven track record of supporting programs that drive innovation in journalism."

Then the post continued, "It will use $1 million to support U.S. grant-making in this crucial area.  The other $1 million will augment the Knight News Challenge, which is accepting funding proposals from anyone, anywhere in the world, until December 1. . . .  [T]he News Challenge has supported projects like DocumentCloud, which aims to bring more investigative-reporting source material online so anyone can find and read it."

Knight Foundation President Alberto Ibargen says a little more about his organization (and Google's donation).

Its New: Auto-advance to the next conversation - Gmail Labs

Today, whenever you open an email in your Gmail inbox and then archive or delete it, you're taken back to your inbox. Many of you have asked for the ability to instead go to the next conversation. Keyboard ninjas will already be familiar with the "]" and "[" keyboard shortcuts for archiving and going to the next/previous conversation. For everyone else (and for people who frequently mute or delete conversations rather than archive them) we're offering a new feature in Gmail Labs called "Auto-advance," which automatically opens the next conversation after you archive/delete/mute the one you're on.

To get started with "Auto-advance" go to the Labs tab in Settings, enable it, and click the "Save changes" button. By default, "Auto-advance" will advance to the previous (older) conversation in your inbox -- perfect for people who read their newest mail first. If you usually read your oldest email first and would rather advance to the next (newer) conversation, you can change the direction from the General Settings tab.

Hopefully this will save you some time the next time you have to deal with a crowded inbox. Try it out and let us know what you think.


Give your suggestions about Gmail Tasks!

) say's

If you're using Tasks, you've probably thought about something you'd like us to improve or an additional feature you wish you had. Well, we want to hear your ideas — whether they're for Tasks in Gmail, in Google Calendar, or on your phone.

For the next few weeks, we're running a poll for Tasks feature requests. We really appreciate the feedback we've already received about syncing, sharing, Calendar integration and more, and we're looking forward to hearing more details within these topics as well as any new requests you have. The poll will remain open until November 19th, at which point we'll take a careful look at all of the feedback and prioritize your requests. So if you have a few minutes between now and then, please take a look and vote to help us improve Tasks functionality. Thanks!

Google's ultra high-speed broadband (Trial)

Earlier this year we announced our plans to build and test ultra-high speed broadband networks in a small number of American communities. Since then, a team of Google engineers has been hard at work experimenting with new fiber optic technologies. And following a series of tests we've run on Google's campus, we're excited to announce the next step in our project.

We've reached an agreement with Stanford University to build an ultra-high speed broadband network to the university's Residential Subdivision, a group of approximately 850 faculty- and staff-owned homes on campus. Through this trial, we plan to offer Internet speeds up to 1 gigabit per second—more than 100 times faster than what most people have access to today. We plan to start breaking ground in early 2011.

To be clear, this trial is completely separate from our community selection process for Google Fiber, which is still ongoing. As we've said, our ultimate goal is to build to at least 50,000 and potentially up to 500,000 people, and we still plan to announce our selected community or communities by the end of the year.

Stanford's Residential Subdivision—our first "beta" deployment to real customers—will be a key step towards that goal. We'll be able to take what we learn from this small deployment to help scale our project more effectively and efficiently to much larger communities.

Why did we decide to build here? Most important was Stanford's openness to us experimenting with new fiber technologies on its streets. The layout of the residential neighborhoods and small number of homes make it a good fit for a beta deployment. And its location—just a few miles up the road from Google—will make it easier for our engineers to monitor progress.

We're excited about this beta, and we look forward to announcing our selected community or communities for Google Fiber in the coming months.

Finer control for Groups of Friends in Orkut

Rodrigo Paiva, (orkut operations team) Say's

Since we launched Groups of Friends, you've likely been using the groups management page to quickly rename, remove and create your groups. So, we'd like to let you know about two improvements we just added to that page.

Remove suggested groups
See a suggested group that you don't really like? Not a problem, now you can easily remove it so it doesn't show up again!

Move friends to different groups
Now you can select several friends from one group and add them to another. Just select multiple friends by pressing the key to drag and drop them into their new group:

To open the groups management page at anytime, just click the "+" button on the top of your homepage and select "manage groups".

Hope you enjoy it, and let us know if you'd like to see more improvements in there.

Google Makes search easier! (Control your Autocompletions)

Query autocompletion has been the most popular feature in the history of Custom Search. Users love it, and websites use it to help people find alternate queries that get them to the right information faster.

Since launch, one of the most commonly requested features has been administrative control over the autocompletions that surface when people start typing their queries. We're happy to announce that you can now control inclusions and exclusions to autocompletions.

For example, on our sample restaurant review search engine, typing "che" triggers an autocompletion for "cheese" and not "cheese jalapeno poppers", one of our tasty snacks. Typing "chicken" did uncover "chicken livers" (ugh!) but did not propose "chicken tandoori", an interesting menu item that we'd like to promote to our users.

With the new inclusion and exclusion options in the control panel, managing autocompletions is a breeze: we just added "cheese" and "chicken livers" to the list of exclusions, and inserted "chicken tandoori" and "cheese jalapeno poppers" into the included autocompletion list.

A few hours of processing, and the new autocomplete modifications kick in.

We hope you enjoy the new controls that further enhance autocompletions on your search engine. You can even upload included and excluded autocompletions in bulk in the control panel. Let us know if you have any feedback, and enjoy your spicy cheese poppers!

Its Time for Feedback for Blogger!

A little over a year ago, we asked all of you to speak your mind and let us know what we could do to make Blogger better. Two thousand ideas and seventy-five thousand votes later, we had quite the laundry list of feature requests and feedback to dig through. Our team took a long, hard look at the data and spent the last year cranking out as many of these features and fixes as humanly possible.

To date, we're happy to say that we've been able to launch most of the top-requested features from the list. Here are just a handful of the features you asked for which are now live:

...and that's just the beginning of the list. We're also working on a few big improvements that we're pretty excited about, so stay tuned as we continue to roll things out of the oven in the near future.

Just as we did last year, we're asking for your input on our Product Ideas page. As always, our ears are open to your feedback and your input has been invaluable over the years in helping us figure out where to put our time and energy.

Please take a moment to vote on and submit ideas, whether specific feature requests or general service improvements. Think about new features that would make you use Blogger more, the things from other services which may be missing, and even the things which may be frustrating at times. We promise to once again take a long look at the feedback, and hope to tackle many of the top issues just as we did last time around.

Thanks again in advance for all your help making Blogger the best service it can be!

Google Instant Now in India!

Vinay Goel (Product Management Director, Google India) Say's

A few weeks ago we introduced a new way of searching that makes search more interactive and helps you find information more quickly and easily. We called it Google Instant, and today we are excited to be rolling out Instant in India.

Google Instant combines three core features -- dynamic results, Autocomplete predictions, and 'scroll-to-search' functionality -- to deliver smart, predictive results as you type. You can watch the video on Youtube that explains Google Instant in greater depth.

In the month since our initial release, we extended Instant to Google Books, Videos, Blogs and Updates, and launched keyboard shortcuts to help you navigate through search results. We have also learned more about how people are using Instant, and although it is still early days, we wanted to share some of those findings.

People are learning to use Instant. In just two weeks, we saw an increase in the fraction of searches performed without hitting enter or clicking search. People are used to searching on Google by hitting enter or clicking "search," but we've been happy to see that people are quickly adjusting to the new experience.

Search is getting more interactive. We've seen about a 7% increase in on-the-fly editing of search queries. Instant isn't just about time savings, it's also a new, more fluid way to search. We've seen people reformulating their queries more. As you type, you see search results, and often those results can inspire you to type better search terms.

People are making the extra effort to use Instant. In just one week, we saw an increase in the relative number of search sessions starting on the Google homepage, likely because they want to use Instant. Google Instant currently only works on the Google homepage and results page, not in other places such as browser search boxes, the Google Toolbar, and the Chrome Omnibox. As people have learned about Google Instant, many seem to be searching more on the homepage in order to use the feature.

We are thrilled to be bringing Google Instant to India, and we look forward to hearing what you think.

Introducing GOOGLE TV

Ambarish Kenghe (AK), (Developer Product Manager, Google TV ) Say's

It’s been almost five months since we introduced Google TV to the world at Google I/O, and today we’re happy to give you an update on our progress. For those who haven’t yet heard of it, Google TV is a new way to think about TV: it’s a platform that combines your current TV programming and the open web into a single, seamless entertainment experience.

One of our goals with Google TV is to finally open up the living room and enable new innovation from content creators, programmers, developers and advertisers. By bringing Google Chrome and access to the entire Internet, you can easily navigate to thousands of websites to watch your favorite web videos, play Flash games, view photos, read movie reviews or chat with friends—all on the big screen.

Since our announcement, we’ve been overwhelmed by interest from partners on how they can use the Google TV platform to personalize, monetize and distribute their content in new ways. Most of these partner sites already work with Google TV, but many are choosing to further enhance heir premium web content for viewing on the television. Today, we’re excited to announce several of these content partners.

  • Turner Broadcasting has been hard at work optimizing some of their most popular websites for viewing on Google TV, including TBS, TNT, CNN, Cartoon Network and Adult Swim, available anytime through Google TV.
  • NBC Universal has collaborated with Google TV to bring CNBC Real-Time, an application that allows you to track your favorite stocks and access news feeds while enjoying the best financial news from CNBC directly on the TV screen.
  • HBO will bring access to hundreds of hours of programming to Google TV with HBO GO. Authenticated subscribers will soon be able to access all of their favorite HBO content on-demand in an enhanced website for Google TV.
  • NBA has built NBA Game Time, an application that lets you follow game scores in real-time and catch up on the latest highlights from your favorite team in HD.
In addition, we’ve partnered with some of the leading premium content providers to bring thousands of movie and TV titles, on-demand, directly to your television. Amazon Video on Demand offers access to over 75,000 titles for rental or purchase, and Netflix will offer the ability to instantly watch unlimited movies and TV shows, anytime, streaming directly to the TV.

We have also been working with some leading technology and media companies to optimize their content for Google TV, including news sites like The New York Times and USA Today; music sites like VEVO, Pandora and Napster; information networks like Twitter; and online networks like And with YouTube Leanback, we can offer the best experience for you to watch your favorite viral videos and personalized channels on the television.

You can get a sneak peek of some of these apps in the video below:

This is just the beginning. Over the next few weeks, you can expect to hear from more sites that are enhancing their web content for the television. If you’re interested in learning more about how to optimize your website for viewing on Google TV, please visit our developer page

Today we also launched a new website that provides more information about these apps and all of the other great features of Google TV.

We’re really excited about the enthusiasm surrounding the platform and can’t wait for it to reach your living room. Devices powered by Google TV will launch this month, so look out for more information in the next few weeks from Sony on its Internet TV and Blu-Ray player, and Logitech on its companion box.

Can you live without Google? [WPN Videos]

Original Post from

About WPN Videos: WebProNews Videos is your home for ebusiness, tech and search video content. We provide exclusive coverage of conferences, compelling interviews with top names in the industry, practical tips, and online news that matters.

Have you ever thought about life without Google? It would be pretty crazy, right? Incidentally, this scenario did actually happen to a region in the United Kingdom. Although it was only temporary, the impact was significant.

The cause of the outage is unknown, but people speculate that it was a network problem and not a problem with Google. It covered areas in both England and Scotland.
During the blackout, people could not access services such as Google Search, YouTube, DoubleClick, AdSense, Google Analytics, and Gmail. One Twitter user, @therealtwin2, tweeted this regarding the outage, "Woah. Google just went down and my whole being felt empty. I didn't know how to use the internet without it. Scary."

According to Edward Cowell, who wrote about the incident on Econsultancy, Google Search, ironically, did not have the greatest impact. Not only were Google's own properties affected, but numerous other websites were also affected.

"The real business risk which became immediately apparent was the huge amount of Google hosted code embedded in websites across the web for ad-serving, tracking and other services," he said.
Cowell also offered advice to webmasters and developers in the event that another outage would occur. He tells webmasters to try using the asynchronous code if they use Google Analytics because this code allows it to "fail gracefully" in service failure circumstances.

For developers, he suggests that they thoroughly test their websites to find out how they react when externally hosted scripts are blocked. Testing is also important if scripts will be embedded into other sites.
Although the outage only lasted for a short time, it is clear that it had a large impact since so many people have grown to depend on Google and its services. How would you survive without Google? Is it possible?

"WWW.GOO.GL" Website Launched!

We first introduced the Google URL Shortener ( last December as part of Google Toolbar and Feedburner. Since our initial release, we've integrated the technology into many other Google products including News, Blogger, Maps, Picasa Web Albums, and Moderator, but people have been asking for a direct way to use the service. Today we're giving its own website (, of course!). We don't intend to overload with features, but we do want it to be the stablest, most secure, and fastest URL shortener on the web.

There are many shorteners out there with great features, so some people may wonder whether the world really needs yet another. As we said late last year, we built with a focus on quality. With, every time you shorten a URL, you know it will work, it will work fast, and it will keep working. You also know that when you click a shortened URL, you're protected against malware, phishing and spam using the same industry-leading technology we use in search and other products. Since our initial release, we've continued to invest in the core quality of the service:

  • Stability: We've had near 100% uptime since our initial launch, and we've worked behind the scenes to make even stabler and more robust.
  • Security: We've added automatic spam detection based on the same type of filtering technology we use in Gmail.
  • Speed: We've more than doubled our speed in just over nine months.

To access the new website and start taking advantage of these improvements, simply type "" in your web browser and hit enter. There you'll find a simple interface where you can quickly shorten a URL.

We've focused on making the service lean, but you will find some helpful features. If you sign-in to your Google Account, you'll see a list of URLs you've shortened in the past. Click the "details" link next to any of shortened URL and you'll find public, real-time analytics data, complete with traffic over time, top referrers, and visitor profiles. This can be a great way to better understand who's interested in your links, how they're finding them and when they're reading.

We also wanted to thank the many application developers out there who took the time to build extensions and other services integrating technology. Even without an official API, there are extensions available for browsers like Chrome (eg: URL Shortener, Shareaholic for Google Chrome) and Firefox (eg: lite). Before people start writing code to incorporate our new features, we wanted to let you know we do plan to release an official API for in the future. You'll be able to use the API to shorten URLs, expand URLs, and view analytics from directly within your own applications.

Happy shortening!
