Any of you able to match IP address to City in China with modules such as geouser?

Hey all of you in China...

I thought this might be the best way to start a discussion on our websites in China being able to find a user's location. I have seen many sites in China such as websites with classifieds, real-estate, etc. that automatically know that you are in Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, etc. However, with Drupal, I have never been successful at doing so.

Big News - Google officially announces support for Good Relations RDFa markup

This news came a few days ago... Google is officially supporting the Good Relations (e-commerce) ontology as a source for Rich Snippets.

This means that once we have a good mapping for it in Drupal Commerce, sites that use Drupal for commerce will be at a distinct advantage. Yahoo research showed that click through rates for rich snippety search results were 15% higher, and other research has shown up to 30% higher.

New version of the Google Ad Manager module


I have to write this post to introduce the 2.x branch of Google Ad Manager module because it is very convenient and handy even for the complex case.

The old version of GAM (and its brother, OpenAds) create a block for each ads slot. It was practical, but only for small sites. When you have about a few dozens of ad slots, and you want to use those blocks in Panels, or you want to place different blocks in the same place (depend on in which section user is)... it is a nightmare.

Robot.txt ve Google'da Dizinlenmek


Drupal ile hazırladığım site hemen hemen her şekilde sorunsuz gitmesine rağmen, Google'da dizinlenme konusunda sorun yaşıyorum.

Robot.txt şu anki haliyle orjinal ancak Google'da bir sayfam dizinlenmiş. [bknz.] Robot.txt'ten neyi kaldırıp kaldırmayacağımı bilmediğim gibi, çift sayfa şekilde dizinlenmek ve başka bir sorun yaşamamak için dokunamıyorum. (Sayfalara URL Alias ile yeniden URL atıyorum.)

Diğer bir konu da arama motoru botlarının onları aktif etmemden sonra siteyi ne kadar zorlayıp zorlamayacağı. Bu site okul tarafından sağlanıyor ve sanırım -bandwidth mi denir?- yeterli olmayabilir. Bu yüzden, öğrendiğim kadarıyla, botların siteye giriş çıkış sürelerinini de nasıl ayarlayabileceğim konusunda yardım istiyorum.

Şimdiden teşekkürler, herkese iyi çalışmalar.

Google released an open source "learning platform"

However, connecting our expert teachers to eager students around the globe can be a complicated business. To that end, we are excited to release our new internal learning platform, CloudCourse under an open source license. Built entirely on App Engine, CloudCourse allows anyone to create and track learning activities. CloudCourse also offers calendaring, waitlist management and approval features.

Google is using site speed as a factor in search rankings

It's no surprise that site speed offers visitors a better experience, but Google just announced that site speed is now a factor in search rankings. I think this has actually been true for some time, but it's worth mentioning here. This is definitely another feather in the hats of performance specialists who offer high performance tuning services to their clients.
