a new browser and a new search engine

Whether you are searching for angola prison, mercenaries 2 cheats, webn fireworks, louisville football or robofly we know here in the Philippines we always use http://www.google.com‘s search engine, or http://www.yahoo.com occasionally. But in case you missed its launch, there’s a new search engine in town, its name is cuil (pronounced as cool), though not as cool as many people expected. The new search engine features an index which the developers claim to be 3x as large as Google’s. Cuil is created by some of the minds behind Google’s search engine, you can check out cuil here.

Internet Explorer 8 beta 2, is released for the general public, its was earlier released for web developers but today its available for the normal joe and juan dela cruz, you can download it here. I don’t know if its just me, or the IE8 beta page feels like Win ME, 😦 , maybe i just need to sleep, i’ve been researching about SEO and fortunately i was able to make this blog to #6 for the search term “filipino programmer”, it may come down again in the next hours, but ill try too see what i can do. Any way, i hope IE8 doesn’t become like Windows ME, i’ve been always a fan of IE its only that Firefox become so popular because of i dunno, standards according to them, i hope the IE team gets it right this time, but they have to make a really good marketing strategy with this.

Also, if you are wondering where did i got the keywords at the start of the article, i got it @ Google Trends, when i got the itching to discover what people are currently searching Google pointed me to that site, as a Filipino Web Developer discovering advanced SEO tricks, one thing i learned today is that blogging about current events can make your page rank higher, but nothing beats link backs and great content of course. There’s also scripts you can use to see the statistics and will help you move forward from there.
