Google Baba Ki Jay - Part 1

Let me tell you a story I read when I was in the 3rd or 4th standard, probably in Chandamama the children's monthly.

A greedy man prays, does tapascharya, and pleases God. God appears before the man and asks him his wish.

"Var maango, vatsa", God says.

The man says, "I want to ask you a few questions before I wish for anything".

"Go ahead", God says.

"We are so small, so all that is in heaven must be bigger than here on earth?" God replies in affirmative.
So the man asks, "How much is your 1 kilo?"
"It is like million tons."
"And one acre?"
"Like a continent"
"And 1 litre"?
"Like one of your oceans."

Pleased, the man thinks for a while and says, "God, I am not greedy. I wish for just one acre of land, and only 100 rupees. Please grant me my wish."

God says, "Sure Vatsa, I will certainly grant you your wish. I will make the arrangements, and will be back in a minute." And he disappears!



Today, Google is like God. Omnipresent, watching you all the time, and with an answer to all your questions. Only one thing.....

Be careful what you ask for. Google will answer your questions, but it does not guess what is in your mind. The trick is in designing your query, trying out different keywords.

And for web designers and SEO professionals, it is designing their keywords and content that could match the query of the person searching the Internet. The real skill is in getting into the top 10 ranking on the first page that Google shows. For that you really have to work hard, and more importantly, get trained in Digital Marketing. At DGMC, we have a PG Diploma in Digital Marketing, a University of Mumbai course that trains you to be a professional Digital Marketeer.
