I just came across this article from SEO by the Sea stating that Google has just acquired Cuil’s remaining search patents.
Now many probably don’t remember Cuil, but as the article states, it was considered as real contender to the Google Search Engine about 4 years ago.
This was a nice read, and it just made me realized how dominant Google has become, and is there really any company that will overtake Google.
We have seen the Giants like AT&T, IBM, Cisco, Oracle, Microsoft, and the latest Giant Apple come along, but all of these companies have legitimate competition when it comes to there core competencies or core focus.
Google on the other hand – has no competition when it comes to search, it has total control in this area. And as we all know search is what dictates what the user finds and eventually what sales are made online, search controls the majority of the user flows or online actions.
Would like to hear your thoughts on how long Google will be on top – will anyone bring down Goliath?

How to get your website on google? – Well this post is kind of a trick question. Most local SEO Guru’s (or non-guru’s) will tell you in order to get a newly registered website indexed by google you must build some initial links to your website. Either links from social bookmarks, or some social networks – some sort of link from an established site, so the Google spiders will find your site and index it.
Well this is true and not-true. What has been determined from some tests (and it makes sense when you think about it) is that for .coms and .orgs (at least this is what I have found) – there is no need to build links to your site for .coms and .orgs (probably .nets as well).
What I believe is that google knows when a .com, .org, or .net is registered (they are tracking this) and they will come and spider the site after the site is live some kind of way.
Well I thought this would be a nice post to get some feedback on. Don’t take my word SEO guru’s on How to get your website on google – go test it and then come back and let me know what you find out.
And let me clear – I am not saying not to build links to your site, yes you will need to build links to your site for ranking purpose, I am just saying that it’s not required for indexing purpose if you have a .com and .org (possibly even .net but I didn’t test .net).
Leave me your feedback on How to get your website on google!
I know this goes against every other post you see on “How to get your website on google?” but don’t take it from me test it for yourself.
