Google wins a landmark ruling for UK defamation law.

Wed, 22 Jul 2009 11:10:52 GMT

A high court judge in London has ruled that Google is not liable for defamatory comments that appear in news articles, blogs and forums displayed in its search results.

The case, against Google's US and UK operations, had been brought by London-based Metropolitan International Schools after negative comments were left on a forum that started showing up in the Search Engine Results Pages.

MIS claimed these comments were defamatory and that Google was liable for publishing these.

Mr Justice Eady ruled in a judgment in the high court on Friday that Google was a "facilitator" and not a publisher of the content.

"When a snippet is thrown up on the user's screen in response to his search, it points him in the direction of an entry somewhere on the web that corresponds, to a greater or lesser extent, to the search terms he has typed in," Eady said. "It is for him to access or not, as he chooses. [Google] has merely, by the provision of its search service, played the role of a facilitator."

However Eady commented that Google has a responsibility to block or take down content if it is notified with a legitimate complaint about libellous material.

Struan Robertson, a lawyer at Pinsent Masons, said that this was the first judicial analysis of search engine liability for defamation under UK law. "It is undoubtedly a brilliant result for Google and other search engines," Robertson concluded.

5 Shilling to 165 Guineas Art Exhibition Hosted by Dolphin Promotions

Wed, 20 May 2009 11:10:52 GMT

Blackpool’s Hits the Big Time Again – And this time it’s a one off cultural Bank Holiday special you won’t want to miss.

Unveiling over the bank holiday weekend on Thurs 21st of May between 6pm and 9pm for 4 days  and in association with Blackpool’s north by north west festival, the world of art brings you something to Evoke your senses, your thoughts and your perception of art in the modern world.

Unlike many exhibitions all works will be available for sale and auctioned to the general public, with a portion of the profits being donated to Tommy Fest and the Tommy Castles Trust, it’s a day for art lovers or curious minds NOT to miss!  And a cultural experience for Blackpool that’s got people talking throughout the town.

If you think you know ART! Think again.  While the theme of the event is “Point Of Sale” the whole vision has been created to test YOU the consumer and a guaranteed event to fascinate interest and inspire.
 
While the art will most certainly be testing your senses the organisers hope they will also leave you in wonder with many questions relating to the purpose of the pieces in question.

Are they designed to look good,  simply for the purpose of selling, to fit inside your home and enhance your interior leaving you in eternal wonder or is there hidden meaning or secrets the artist has hidden or is trying to convey.  Interpret as you wish but most of all ENJOY!

The weekend is forecast to see visitors flooding in from all areas of the North West, whether your an art lover or not, want a great day out, wish to challenge your mind or are simply looking for something special for your home. 

You must come down and take a look.

The exhibition is at the Dolphin Promotions offices on 32 Clifton Street, Blackpool, FY1 1JP




Google Base Integration

Tue, 19 May 2009 11:10:52 GMT

Google Base is one of our favourite tools to improve traffic and sales for our clients Ecommerce sites. While you should not rely on Google Base as the sole tool to generate sales we have found that it can improve traffic by 15-50% depending on the site itself. We also find that this traffic has a very high conversion ratio compared to organic rankings.

Even better once Google Base is integrated it can start providing traffic (and Sales) within a few hours and at no extra cost.

As part of the integration we customise the script to make sure your Google Base feed is optimised as much as possible providing the maximum amount of traffic and "OneBox" rankings.

One of the great things about Google Base is it can start generating sales within days of a site being launched and at no cost after the integration. This means Google Base can often be a much better solution than Adwords for smaller companies on a tight budget.

We can integrate Google Base on all the sites we have developed, if we have not developed the site then we can normally work out a way to integrate it though this normally increases the cost.

If you are interested in having Google Base integrated with your site then feel free to contact one of our account managers via:

Google rolling out changes to favour brands

Mon, 9 Mar 2009 11:10:52 GMT

There has been quite a lot of chatter in the SEO world the past few weeks regarding Google implementing changes to their algorithm to heavily favour branding.

Aaron Wall first blogged about the changes when he noticed certain big name brands ranking for competitive terms that had previously never ranked. These jumps in rankings were not a few small anomalies but changes across the board. 

For example for the term airline tickets  aa.com, delta.com, nwa.com and continental.com all gained first page rankings.

For the term auto insurance statefarm.com, nationwide.com, aaa.com, libertymutual.com and famers.com all gained first page rankings.

The terms diets found Atkins, weightwatchers and nutrisystem all land first page rankings.

It would appear that these changes are only really affecting the US based data centres at the moment however these changes will likely be rolled out globally at some point.

Matt Cutts, who works for the Search Quality group in Google and is the voice of Google when it comes down to these matters, posted a YouTube video confirming that there had indeed been some changes.

He doesn’t confirm that it is specifically orientated around Brands however he does confirm that they focus on authority, trust, reputation and PageRank.

One of the issues a lot of people are commenting about is the fact that this new changes are theoretically damaging smaller companies that have worked hard to achieve first page rankings for competitive terms. In theory Google is making it much easier for big names to rank while penalising smaller companies making the rich get richer and the poor poorer.

However the argument for the other side is that these changes should make it harder for companies to artificially manipulate the search engine results pages. In theory it should now be harder for a company solely relying on links to achieve positions for highly competitive terms.
