Right to be forgotten
What is this new "Right to be forgotten" that everyone seems to be talking about all of a sudden? Well, earlier this month, Europe's top court ruled that people can ask Internet search engines to remove links to content that is inadequate, irrelevant or could be deemed to infringe on their right to privacy. In response to this ruling that sent shock waves through the internet industry, Google has created a portal where it is handling all such requests from residents in Europe.

But don't you sometimes feel at a loss to pinpoint what you're looking for, and randomly sift through the internet for a chance encounter? Perhaps you need some creative ideas for your upcoming vocations. But there never existed a search engine that could help you with such stuff.

Until now.

Google has just announced that it will now get this data directly from the Artists' official website, which means that if you're a music artist or a band, then you should read through the rest of this post!

App Indexing
While browsing the web on your smartphone, have you ever felt the need to open up an app associated with the website you're on, and look for something in that app?

Import and Share Analytics Insights With a Click!
Google Analytics can be hard to follow, especially for beginners. They simply feel lost in a plethora of so many options and features, and are drowned out by so much information. And it isn't a challenge just for newbies either. Even experienced webmasters can have difficulty navigating through Google Analytics and finding the feature they're looking for. To help users with this problem, the Google Analytics team introduced the Analytics Solution Gallery back in February this year which was a portal of sorts where the Analytics team would upload basic collections of dashboards, reports and segments for users to import and use. Now though, Google Analytics has just made this Gallery public, allowing anyone to contribute their solutions, free for everyone to download them!
