Bhavana Marriage Bureau - Hyderabad - Worst Services

Here I would like to write the review on Bhavana Marriage Bureau services.I am not sure how they were serving others but we paid Rs.3000/- for searching groom for a Bride, We didn't get even a single call or match from their end.

When we ask for refund, they said neither they are going pay us our money back nor search for matches and they are telling that they will cancel our membership without refunding our money.

We paid Manju Marriage bureau as well, But their services were far good. I don't want to compare their services with Bhavana Marriage Bureau. Manju Marriage bureau is completely dedicated for serving their clients. I am quite impressed with Manju Marriage Bureau services.

But please do not choose Bhavana Marriage Bureau if you want to search for alliance for bride or bridegroom.

Here I came out with my bad experience with Bhavana Marriage Bureau matrimony services. I would be very much happy even few people get awareness about their services by reading this blog.

Please be careful in choosing marriage bureaus in Hyderabad, specially for Telugu people. Do not get cheated only be seeing a website or office.

I would like to give some suggestions to choose a good marriage bureau

  1.  Ask them for guaranteed service
  2. Ask for their past clients contact numbers and inquire through phone. Choose their clients randomly. 
  3. Read reviews online about their services
  4. Take receipt for your money payment so that you can sue them if they fails in providing proper service
Please write here your reviews also as comments if some one had good or bad experiences with Bhavana Marriage Bureau. So that the public will aware of their services.

Wordtracker for Australia !?

Is there an option to access keywords related to Australia. Or at least other than US and UK countries?
Is there any reason they only providing keywords for US and UK. The reason is simple, they don't have data.

Can you guess how Wordtracker works?

I guess it has tie-up with site tracking software companies like statcounter, addfreestats etc etc..

They will either buy data from them or give share in their revenue to those web stats software companies.

And the use some formulas wisely.

Anyway it may useful for US and UK, but remains useless for other countries.

Option to Resubmit Robots.txt

Today I added a site into Google webmaster tools and verified.
Unfortunately the robots.txt file was wrong.
And now I wanted to  resubmit it.
There is no option to resubmit the robots.txt file on the Google webmaster tools.
I tried deleting the site and adding it again.. but it is considering the old robots.txt file.
It would be good idea to add a new feature on the Google webmaster tools to resubmit the robots.txt file.

Difference between search engine optimiser and website optimiser

There is a lot of difference between search engine optimiser and website optimiser. Search Engine Optimiser deal with optimising the website only for search engines. But website optimiser optimise the website for search engines, speed and for users. Website Optimisers should take care about many other things that can not be handled by search engine optimisers.

The job duties of Search Engine Optimiser may include

  • Optimising title tags
  • Optimising meta tags
  • Optimising image alt tags
  • Optimising HTML code
  • Writing meta redirects
  • Optimising URLs
  • Writing .htaccess rules
  • Keyword recommendations
  • Competitor analysis
  • Content writing
  • Link building

The job duties of Website Optimiser may include
All the job duties of SEO as well as the following things
  • Optimising the website for users
  • Optimising the website for Speed
  • Analyzing the bounce rates and suggesting to the client
  • Usability suggestions
  • Rich User Interface recommendations
  • Most of the website optimisers can be able to go into the code and edit without the developer help

These days I am afraid of  introduce myself as SEO in LinkedIn. I am getting many rejections when i request to join some one's professional network. The reason, may be they are thinking that SEO's are spammers. But It is not always true. An SEO is not just limited to Title, meta tags and link building. An SEO is more than that. Search Engine Optimiser or Website Optimiser is the key to a website success. Please do not consider SEO as spammer, SEO/website optimiser is a Professional, they deserve that work. Some of the SEO's/website optimisers are better programmers than professional programmers.

Sometimes professional programmers are becoming as Search Engine Optimiser/web optimiser, they like to deal with entire business instead of just program. Website Optimisation is an art to promote any business online, its not just link building and optimising title and meta tags.

I am proud to say that I am an SEO. Some other qualities i had in me: a PHP programmer, JavaScript programmer, Jquery programmer, Joomla expert, OS Commerce expert, CSS expert...

But I love SEO Job.

Bug in Webmaster tools - Change in Address

There is a bug in "Change of Address" in Google webmaster tools. I guess this is the worst part of Google webmaster tools I ever seen in my experience. I redirected old site to new site using Google webmaster tools in "Change in Address". See the image below, a screen shot of change of address I did in Google webmaster tools.

And all the old pages were redirected to the new pages in the new site using 301 redirect. But Google is not good enough to handle the request. It is showing my new pages under old domain name. But Google search engine is messed up between those two sites, Old and new.

The old site:
The new site:

Google is showing the pages under new site as they belongs to old site.

For example, the page related to "planning-a-funeral"
New site:
old site:

But Google showing a new link, which is ever existing. So, I don't have any other chice, i redirected my non existing pages also to new pages.

Hope Google needs to improve its "Change of Address" in Webmaster tools.  Another strange thing is the Google showing each page twice on its SERP's for "" (Selwyn allen funerals I discussed it in my last post (Repeating Google Search Results - Google Bug).

Repeating Google Search Results - Google Bug

Why Google repeating same search results twice? It is strange. Of course it is going under duplicate content. But why showing same page with same title, description twice? I ever seen like this.

I redirected the old site to new site using Google webmaster tools, where old site has entirely different set of URL's from new one. The content also rewritten.

noindex for part of content in a webpage

This is experiment on how class="robots-nocontent" works. All my previous three experiments class="robots-noindex", rel="noindex", <noindex> failed in making a part of the content non indexable by search engines. Lets try this finally.

<div class="robots-nocontent">As yahoo told at, this part of content in this div shouldn't indexed by yahoo search engine. But not sure about Google. Google may not support this "robots-nocontent" class. Because it is quite opposite to Google SEO philosophy, "do no do anything specially for search engines" </div>

Let's see what happens.


This is another experiment on how robots treat the following class="robots-noindex".

<div class="robots-noindex"> Robots must exclude this content in their search index</div>

Lets try  to get a paragraph indexed by Google bot only

<div class="robots-noindex googlebot-index"> All robots must exclude this content in their search index except Googlebot</div>

<div class="robots-noindex slurp-index"> All robots must exclude this content in their search index except Yahoo bot</div>


This is the experiment for rel="noindex". Let's test how the rel="noindex" works for search engines.

<div rel="noindex">Melbourne Web Developers live in Melbourne </div>
<div rel="noindex" name="robots">Melbourne SEO's live in</div>

We are done. Lets see the results.


Here i am experimenting on nocache and noindex tags within the paragraph.

The aim of this experiment is to test search engines for noindex and nofollow if they were used in the middle of the content.

The following text is for testing.

<p content="noindex"> All melbourne seo's belongs to Australia </p>

<p name="robots" content="noindex">All Australian designers are not belongs to Melbourne</p>

<noindex>All Melbourne web designers live in Australia</noindex>

<strong>do not use strong tag but use bold tag. This will not treated as bold by search engines. Search in Google cached content of this page</strong>

<b>Do use b tag instead of strong tag. It is good for seo</b>

Please leave your comments if you like these kinds of experiments.

Yahoo ignoring noindex

Change of Address - Google webmaster tools

I have my two sites verified in Google Webmaster Tools. Today i tried to apply for change of address. From and old site to newly designed site. The change of Address.

Google saying that i need to verify the site i wanted to redirect from which is already verified by Google Webmaster Tools.

We couldn't verify To submit a change of address, must be verified using the same method as Add to your account and verify ownership, then try again.

Here we need to understand one thing. and were treated differently by Google. So we need to verify both of them

I did it. Then Google accepted my change of address (redirection request) from old site to new site.

How is DMOZ Data Used? - Dmoz Badge

With respect to the blogpost of How is DMOZ Data Used?

They said that the Dmoz data should be used with its badge only. But there are many number of websites not following this rule, not even aware of it. But they are just getting the data from Dmoz and using it.

For example few sites listed below.

I found many.

Try the following url to get list of dmoz data dumpers.,+deep+sea,+reef+and+game+fishing,+rottnest+echo+tours,+island+and+river+cruises%22&hl=en&filter=0&fp=aeeb86f279fed0f5

But the warning for those people by the Dmoz is not strong enough.

They stated
Sites that do not display the badge are in violation of the license agreement. Site owners may be contacted by DMOZ and asked to make the appropriate updates in order to comply.

How to ask a question to Matt Cutts?

Hi Friends

Do you want to ask a question to Matt Cutts?

Don't have a way to ask?

Many people ask questions through his blog comments. But he may hardly read them. Then what is the way to ask questions to Matt? I too tired to searching a way to ask my seo questions. But finally i found a good way to ask him question.

You can ask  matt a question at Google moderator appspot:

But be careful. Do not ask all the heck like how to optimize my title tag, how to optimize my meta description tags, my meta keywords tags, he may not respond. Not only MattCutts you can ask questions to any Google engineer, a world leader and y ou can Suggest an Android application.

So.. start firing....

Yahoo ignoring NOINDEX and NOFOLLOW

I already made a post about it( Yahoo and Bing Ignoring NOINDEX and NOFOLLOW in the meta tags

I got the proof here this page has been in yahoo search engine index which has
<META NAME="slurp" REL="noindex,nofollow"> 
tags in its HTML

So. it would be good to password protect if you have any confidential data to protect it from yahoo search bot.

But BING seems to be started respecting NOINDEX and NOFOLLOW.

Google behaving strangely

Today I found an interesting thing which i couldn't be able to analyze the reason.

Search for 'diffrent css for safari' on Google you can find this blog on the first SERP of Google.

The surprising thing is i ever before used the word "diffrent" through out my blog. Why it is showing this blog?

When i site search for the keyword of "diffrent" i am not able to find even a single word through out this blog(

 It is quite surprising and interesting.

The reason we like Google

Why do we love Google? They care each and every point very particular.

Today i am submitting my site to the Yahoo and Google webmaster tools. I was given meta verification tags by them. See the difference. Google given with xhtml standards, in the other hand Yahoo seems to be not caring any xhtml standards.

What should we call it?

And Yahoo asking 24 hours to validate the site. It is not able to validate the site immediately after inserting meta tags or uploading authentication html file.

Difference between doorway pages and cloaking

May people confuses. The confusion comes from misunderstanding or not understanding at all.

Cloaking is completely related to IP address.
Doorway pages is related to redirection using meta or .htaccess or javascript


Cloaking is to serve the different content to different users. Cloaking has its uses.
Cloaking is basically not a black hat technique.Using cloaking in a different way.. will comes under black hat techique.

So.. lets see about cloaking usage.

If you have a news website which serves news internationally. You would like to serve different news to different countries at the same time on your home page. This means.. you are serving different content to different users. It is not Black hat technique.

Then why Cloaking called as black hat technique?

If you serving content to search engines specially. that will comes under black hat cloaking. When you show different content to your users and to the search engines.. then that will comes under black hat cloaking. You have to treat search engines as your normal visitors. Do not treat them different than your visitors.

You can serve different content to the browser than that of search engines depending on the type of request(User-agent HTTP or others) your server gets.

Doorway pages

Doorway pages are something different than cloaking.

Using JavaScript

Search engines ignores javascript. If some one takes advantage of it .. and redirects the visitor referred by search engines to a different page.

Another kind of building a doorway page is..

Using meta redirect tag.

Lets see the syntax of meta redirect tag

<meta HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="60; URL=">

I am not sure whether Google or any other search engine considers the time with in meta redirect tag.
What if some one keep the time of 6000 seconds = 100 minutes which is greater than one and half hours.

This means.. the visitor almost finishes reading content on that page and closes the page before the browser redirects to the destination page. But the search engines considers the redirected page content in the search results.

So.. be smart.

Funny thing about

Its so fun..

Most of us use "" for example. We use it for demonstrating to the reader.

Do you know what is the pagerank of ""?

It is 7.

Some facts about ""

The number of back links to "" - 937 (Google shows, may be yahoo site explorer shows more) -

Web pages that contain the term "" - 527,000 (may be 527,001 with this blog page:P - just joking ) -

Do you know the size of the website of "" - 31 pages (

A website having 31 web pages having PR 7 .. I ever seen this kind of situation.

Does Google has solution for it?

Hey Matt.. Can you answer this?

He is too busy to care about tons of things..

Well ... Matt is also not an exception. He also used "" 10 times in his blog (

So his share is - (7/527,000)X100 % = 0.0018975%

Understanding Sneaky Redirects

What are the good redirects and bad redirects(sneaky redirects)?

The redirect of a web page made using Javascript is a sneaky redirect.


Because search engines ignores javascript. So they don't know even there is a redirect exists.

Which redirecting techniques are good?

Using meta redirect 
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="2; url=">
For more info:

Using .htaccess (mod rewrite)

Or use 301(permanent) redirect using .htaccess

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [L,R=301]

For more info on .htaccess 301 redirect:

Best way to present the content in flash to search engines

Well.. there are three ways

Good way, bad way, another one.. not good and not bad.

Lets discuss about the bad way first


Yes. It is the bad way. Showing different to search engines and site visitors. Obviously Google hates it.

It is not good practice to show the flash content to the site visitor and text content in that flash to the search engines. There is a smart way to do this. But don't go for Cloaking or doorway page techniques. It comes under SEO black-hat technique.

Hiding text behind flash

This is not good and not bad. Not an SEO Blak-hat technique. But there is a rule. You must show the content same format which is exists in the flash movie but not any other text.
It is not a black-hat technique because you are not showing the different content or URL to the search engines and site visitors.

Well.. there is a better technique below..

using <noscript> tags

Interesting !!!

Call the flash movie using javascript and write your flash content  html version in <noscript> tags. Obviously search engines ignores javascript and get the content which is in between <noscript> tags.

So.. It is supportable by Google itself. See:

They mentioned
Provide the textual contents of JavaScript in a noscript tag.
 Finally i would like to repeat it. Sorry for repeating
Ensure the text you are showing in <noscript> tags is the same content and format in the flash move

Google started Canonicalization for its blogspot

While I am observing the meta tags today I found canonical tag in my blog.

<link href=''

But I feel it is quite wrong way they used.

Canonicalization is the solution for the duplicate content. But they added canonical tag for each and every page of my blog with the corresponding page link in HREF.

Read my post about Canonicalization : Understanding Canonicalization

In the case of Google blogspot the canonical tags should be appear for the label pages(eg: Because that is only the part in my blog content duplication happens.

What do you say?

Bing and Yahoo Search engines following and indexing nofollow/noindex ?

Yes. I already made a post regarding this.

Well unfortunately the meta tags in the were changed. So we don't have any proof.

Here I am going to give you the proof.

I created robots meta tags of this blog as following

<meta name='slurp' rel='noindex,nofollow'/>
<meta name='msnbot' rel='noindex,nofollow'/>

Lets see what is going to happne in yahoo and bing search engines

I am going to give you the experiment result in my next posts.

Google Cache Dance

Google Cache Dance?

Strange? Yes to me too.

Today i am observing my blog cached state.

It showed me the cache of 31st August 2009... then i refresh.. it showed 4th September cache.. then again i refreshed.. 31st cache then 4th.. Its so pathetic..

I think it is because of update at its data centers. 

Any other ideas?

What is "search / organic" in Google Analytics?

What is "search / organic" source of traffic ?

Today, while i am analyzing the Google Analytics statistics i found this "search/organic" under "source/medium".

What is Keyword Stemming?

Stemming Keyword

What is it?

It is a way of using keyword in different ways with prefix, suffix and using plurals. It is a practice in Search Engine Optimisation (SEO).

Any Example?

Yes, why not.

Lest start with keyword of "keyword stemming".

We can stem the keyword stemming in the following ways.
  • keyword stemming
  • key word stemming
  • keywords stemming
  • stemming keyword
  • stemming keywords
  • stemming key words
  • stemming key word

All the above key words were stemmed.

Why is it so important ?

In optimizing a page it is a good practice of stemming of keywords. While you are writing the content take care all your stemmed keywords were used in a proper manner and spread throughout the content. Content quality is also important factor in SEO success not only keyword stemming.

Keyword stemming is very much important in Bing Search Engine Optimization.
For more information read:

Don't try to fool the Google using Stemming technique. Google is intelligent enough to recognize the different between "stem cell", "rose stem", "plant stem" and "keyword stem".

Happy SEO stemming... :)

Different stylesheets for different Safari browser versions

Safari Compatible issues between its versions

Today I found there are some style issues between safari 3.x and safari 4.x.

In General we use the following way to use different style sheets for different IE versions

<!--[if IE]>

<link href="" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />


<!--[if IE 7]>

<link href="" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />


But It is not possible to differentiate versions of Safari browser like this for defining different CSS for different safari versions.

I worked on Quirks Javascript today and made some changes which is easy to use for dummies also.

Include the following JavaScript in your html document
<script type="text/javascript">

var BrowserDetect = {
    init: function () {
        this.browser = this.searchString(this.dataBrowser) || "An unknown browser";
        this.version = this.searchVersion(navigator.userAgent)
            || this.searchVersion(navigator.appVersion)
            || "an unknown version";
        this.OS = this.searchString(this.dataOS) || "an unknown OS";
    searchString: function (data) {
        for (var i=0;i<data.length;i++)    {
            var dataString = data[i].string;
            var dataProp = data[i].prop;
            this.versionSearchString = data[i].versionSearch || data[i].identity;
            if (dataString) {
                if (dataString.indexOf(data[i].subString) != -1)
                    return data[i].identity;
            else if (dataProp)
                return data[i].identity;
    searchVersion: function (dataString) {
        var index = dataString.indexOf(this.versionSearchString);
        if (index == -1) return;
        return parseFloat(dataString.substring(index+this.versionSearchString.length+1));
    dataBrowser: [
            string: navigator.vendor,
            subString: "Apple",
            identity: "Safari",
            versionSearch: "Version"
            string: navigator.userAgent,
            subString: "Firefox",
            identity: "Firefox",
            versionSearch: "Version"
            string: navigator.userAgent,
            subString: "MSIE",
            identity: "Explorer",
            versionSearch: "MSIE"
    dataOS : [
            string: navigator.platform,
            subString: "Win",
            identity: "Windows"
            string: navigator.platform,
            subString: "Mac",
            identity: "Mac"
               string: navigator.userAgent,
               subString: "iPhone",
               identity: "iPhone/iPod"
            string: navigator.platform,
            subString: "Linux",
            identity: "Linux"


// -->

And then the following script

<script type="text/javascript">
if (BrowserDetect.browser == "Safari")

    if (BrowserDetect.version >= 4 )
    {document.write('<link href="safaristyle4.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />');}
    {document.write('<link href="safaristyle.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />')}


//////////////////////////// If you want to use for IE too

if (BrowserDetect.browser == "Explorer")

    if (BrowserDetect.version == 6 )
    {document.write('<link href="IE6.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />');}
    else if (BrowserDetect.version == 7 )
    {document.write('<link href="IE7.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />')}
    else if (BrowserDetect.version == 8 )
    {document.write('<link href="IE8.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />')}

//////////////////////////// If you want to use for safari

if (BrowserDetect.browser == "Firefox")

    document.write('<link href="safari.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />')

// -->


Hope it is useful ...

BING SEO Technique - Bing Bug

Important Bing SEO technique

I would like to address one SEO technique for Bing.

I found it is very interesting and foolishness of Bing Search Technique.

Roll up your sleeves. Start re-optimizing for Bing if it is so important for you.

Suppose if you want to optimize a page for "Bing Ignoring NOINDEX" you will not found for "Bing ignores NOINDEX".

Do you need a proof?

You can find on Google for both "Bing Ignoring NOINDEX" and "Bing ignores NOINDEX" key phrases.

But on BING you can find this blog only for "Bing Ignoring NOINDEX" key phrase but not for "Bing ignores NOINDEX".

So.. BING is just in learning stage. SEO's can treat this as Bing Bug (not Bug Bing).

So(SEO) be careful while you are optimizing your site for Bing too. Keep in mind all the possible combination of keywords.

I will all SEO's.. Happy Bing Optimisation..

WebPosition not updated with Bing

I am using Webposition 4 for monitoring our client's websites search engine rankings. We bought this software almost a six months back.

When ever i start the Webposition software everyday morning, it is receiving updates from its official update center.

I guess one day i will receive the Bing engine with their daily updates, everyday i am looking for Bing in the search engines list. But it is too late.

Screen shot of Webposition with no "Bing"

Today I went to Webpostion official site for finding whether there is any patch available, but no luck.

They may say that MSN and Bing search results were same. But there must be name exist with "Bing" in their search engines list in WebPostion Reporter.

Waiting for your comments..

There are many companies offering seo services in Melbourne. But I picked up these companies from Google organic results.

Anyway i need to compare them with respect to the price also.

I'll be back with more points..

Using Subdomains for Speed Optimisation

There are few small things that accelerate your website loading. The time difference may be in seconds.. but it makes huge difference in user experience perspective. Yes its true.

If you load your images and javascript and css files from your sub-domains your website loading time may be decreased by half.

Not believable?

Here is the secret...

The current HTTP protocol accepts only two simultaneous connections from a domain. So if you use your images css and js from single domain, they all will be queued up waiting for their turn. If you load your images from and js and css from then all  your html page, images and js, css files will load paralelly.

Where is the proof?

Search for any images there and see the properties of all ten images.

They loads from

So the loading time is very very less. The images loads quicker, parallel, fast .

Another Secret

You can make this magic using .htaccess. you don't really need to place your current components into original subdomain. You can write an .htaccess in the subdomain to redirect all the requests to your original domain.

So... Why can't you try it today..

Post your comments here if you have any questions. I would happy to answer.. :)

Free scheduled tweets on

There is another awesome twitter tool for scheduled tweets.

It is free of cost. It will not charge you anything from you for scheduled tweets.

Just register and schedule your tweets.

You can schedule recurring tweets too. costs nothing. But will charge from you for recurring tweets.

You can set recurring tweets hourly, daily, weekly, monthly and yearly too..

I can hardly find the reason to set recurring tweet for yearly. You can set how many times you want to tweet.

Have a look at the scheduled tweets screen on "tweet u later" service

Happy Tweeeeeeeting..

Similar to Firebug tool for Safari

Many of us don't know that there is a web developer toolbar for safari too.
I too recently come to know that there is a built in tool for Safari same as Firebug for Firefox.
It is much useful for developers while fixing the cross browser compatible issues.

It is available for Safari 3.1.1(may be for other versions too) & Safari  4.X.

Enable Developer toolbar (Firebug like) for Safari

Go to Edit > Preferences > Advanced and then check "show develop menu in menu bar".

Thats it. You are done. Follow the screens below if you are confused..

Finally... You can find safari firebug as shown below..

Ugly Pagerank Indicator

I don't like the Pagerank indicator in new Google toolbar. It is good in older version.

I don't want to update to newer version of the toolbar.. but it automatically updated itself.

I think most of the SEO's don't like the latest Pagerank indicator. I am going to tell my opinion to the Google team who are working on Google Toolbar.

Support me here if you want to..
