The Ten Commandments of Googlism

Just came across this wonderful piece of writing by Jay Garmon, a TechRepublic’s professional. I couldn’t stop myself from sharing this through my blog. I found it very interesting; you too will find it much to your amusement…🙂

When someone asks if you’re a god, you say yes!“–the organized practitioners of Googlism have brought forth many of the trappings of more mainstream religions Google is a more useful object of worship than most competing theological entities. After all, Google queries are prayers that actually get answered, though often mysteriously.

And, for good measure, we give you The Ten Commandments of Googlism:

  1. Thou shall have no other Search Engine before me, neither Yahoo nor Lycos, AltaVista nor Metacrawler. Thou shall worship only me, and come to Google only for answers.
  2. Thou shall not build thy own commercial-free Search Engine, for I am a jealous Engine, bringing law suits and plagues against the fathers of the children unto the third and fourth generations.
  3. Thou shall not use Google as a verb to mean the use of any lesser Search Engine.
  4. Thou shall remember each passing day and use thy time as an opportunity to gain knowledge of the unknown.
  5. Thou shall honor thy fellow humans, regardless of gender, sexual orientation or race, for each has invaluable experience and knowledge to contribute toward humankind.
  6. Thou shall not misspell whilst praying to me.
  7. Thou shall not hotlink.
  8. Thou shall not plagiarize or take undue credit for other’s work.
  9. Thou shall not use reciprocal links nor link farms, for I am a vengeful but fair engine and will diminish thy Page Rank. The Google Dance shall cometh.
  10. Thou shall not manipulate Search Results. Search Engine Optimization is but the work of Microsoft.

These commandments are scary for seo service companies.But every marketing person who follows these commandments is blessed by GOOGLE GOD by good page rank and higher google rankings.

Google Sandbox Effects.


We all are aware of Google sandbox effect. For new sites entering the website market Google Sandbox is a great wall. Thus to pass by this wall smoothly and with less of sandbox effects you need to take care of certain things. Read this article to know how you and your SEO Company can protect your site from Google penalties.

1. Try launching your new site on an old or expired domain. This will give your site more chances to be safe from sandbox effects.

2. Place unique and fresh content on your web pages. Rather then uploading your whole site at the same time try uploading only a few pages and let it develop into phases.

3. Gather quality back links for the site slowly and steadily. Don’t rush to get back links from all link farms and irrelevant sites. These will do no good to your site.

4. Try optimizing your site for less popular keywords as gaming on less popular keywords can get you faster search rankings because of low competitiveness.

5. Avoid Back Hat SEO Services and learn Google guidelines by heart while optimizing your website.

Sandbox effects cannot be controlled but can be minimized so as to protect your site from penalties or complete ban by Google. Let your site’s domain age a few months and then start trying your ways to get the top rankings in the search engines. If your site has unfortunately entered into sandbox, there is no other option then being patient and see your site mature in the sandbox circle.
