Google Street View is a new feature of Google Maps and Google Earth. It provides 360 degree street-level views. Currently hundreds of U.S. cities can be viewed via Google Street View. It is obvious that Street View will be covering rest of the world in a few years time.
Probably you have heard of Google Street View before. Chances are you have also followed the discussions about invasions of privacy. I am not going to tell you about these discussions.
I have a brilliant idea for Google. I believe Google should immediately start Bloggers View feature to highlight daily working habits of bloggers like me. This could be very interesting for the people who are interested in blogging. I also have a Web cam, so Google can follow me 7/24. If we make an agreement with Google, and if they pay me some money I will be glad to share my daily blogging routine with everyone over the Web.
What do you think? Do you think it is a good idea?

Last weekend I read Chris Lang‘s Wickedly Evil Social Marketing Tactics book. If you are new to Social Marketing or willing to improve your presence at Social Marketing sites, than you will learn a lot from this ebook.
Who is Chris Lang anyway?
He is a Social Marketing and SEO Consultant and full time Internet Junkie. He is the owner of Keywebdata.com
What Will You Learn After Reading This Book?
You will learn which Social Marketing Sites will return PageRank to your blog
How to find keywords/tags that bring you traffic
Get your sites/blogs, social marketing profiles, and pages listed in Google, MSN, and Yahoo in minutes
Learn how search engines work, and what they expect from you
This book is about how keywords, tags, headlines, body text and link text affect your search engine rankings. Chris mainly focuses on Google Juice in his book.
What Exactly Is That Google Juice?
I am sure you have heard of it before. Google gives your site/blog higher rankings depending on the number of incoming links. Google juice is the links that Google sees and all links just because they end at your site/blog are not same.
While reading the book, I understood that I missed the correlation between social marketing sites and search engine rankings. Thanks to Chris Lang, he wrote very technical issues in a clear and understandable way. If you are interested you may get your copy from here: Wickedly Evil Social Marketing Tactics

I am glad to share with my fellow readers and blogging buddies that my blog’s new Alexa rank is 83,785. As a blogger who will be leaving full time job by the end of August to earn his living from blogging and Internet projects, I am very happy that hardworking pays off these days.
You can find the comparison of my blog’s Alexa performance with Caroline-Middlebrook.com/blog (2610 RSS subscribers), Thinksimplenow.com (Almost 6000 RSS subscribers), and Thethinkingblog.com (2250 RSS subscribers) herebelow:
Most sponsors/direct advertisors believe that popular blogs with high RSS subscribers will have a better Alexa performance. Above chart proves that it is not true. My blog has only 230-250 RSS subscribers daily in average, yet still competing well with more popular blogs.
How I achieve that? It is not top secret. I am hardworking and I have the vision to become big. I try to find my own way of blogging, rather than copying popular bloggers. I am open to all kinds of criticism and learning from my mistakes. Apart from that, I use social bookmarking/networking sites very effectively.
