Google echo

without comments

Some short news from the google front ;)

1. Few days ago Google launched free online open source project hosting platform. Ofcourse this was planned long before Microsoft launching its codeplex, but you can feel the fights for the niches. Will Yahoo! join? And how this will affect the famous sourceforge?

2. Finaly google analytics doubled its site profile limit from 5 to 10. Many webmasters do not use google analytics, but some of those who do might like this little upgrade.

Bots

without comments

According to Yahoo! blog they have their new bot (Yahoo! Slurp) version in action that will reduce the number of requests and bandwidth consuption to crawled sites.

Almost at the same time MSN renamed few its bots (they all were named the same before) to help better distinguish them apart. So from now:
The MSN Shopping bot – msnbot-products
The MSN News bot – msnbot-news
The MSN Search bot – msnbot
The MSN Image Search bot – msnbot-media

This will help you better understand what is MSN doing on your site ;)

CodePlex.com by Microsoft

without comments

Well, Microsoft has stepped even further into open source. Some time ago they have opened an open source community portal – codeplex.com – a nice place for those who are developing open source projects based on microsoft technology and for those who have interest in such projects. So grab a free copy of Visual studio Express 2005 and go coding. I have been using Visual Studio Express 2005 for a while and find codeplex combined with msdn quite useful.
