Google Drive – Cloud opbevaring, dokumenter, filer, billeder osv på dansk

Så kom Google Drive endelig. Netop lanceret, og ikke et minut for sent.

Google Drev, på dansk, er Googles online, cloud opbevaring. Her kan du gemme dine dokumenter, billeder, video osv. Det er som dit eget personlige drev, til at starte med med 5 gb gratis plads.

Konkurrenterne er super aktive, Microsoft, annoncerede netop SkyDrive.com, der er dere version af online opbevaring/storage. Dropbox.com har været på markedet længe, og betragtes som cen førende. Invester ikke dine penge i Dropbox pt. Når nu MS eller Google ikke har opkøbt Dropbox, så betyder det nok udkonkurrering.

Google Drive fungerer som en udvidelse af din harddisk.

MEN men men, der er stadig ventetid. Google er kendt for at kategorisere sine produkter som beta, dvs ikke færdige versioner. “Drev” er ikke nogen undsætning. Meld dig til Google Drive ventelisten, hvis den ikke er tilgængelig for dig.

DropBox - opbevaring online Drop Box Dansk

Jeg har selv Skydrive og Dropbox, og må sige at SkyDrive er super fedt. Har fordelen ved at være godt integreret i styresystemet, eks windows, eller som mig, MAC. Glæder mig til at afprøve Google Drive og se mine oplevelser af de tre produkter.

Har du erfaring med flere af dem, hvad mener du er bedst?

OPDATERING:

Google Analytics har fået Send til Email rapporter tilbage i Beta

God nyhed. Du kan nu sende e-mail rapporter i Google Analytics igen. Den mest efterspurgte feature hos Analytics teamet er tilbage. Det vil lette mange, inklusiv mig, på rådgivning og anvendelse af Analytics generelt.

Send E-mail Rapporter Google Analytics

Funktionen er faktisk blevet udviddet, du kan nu sætte avancerede indstillinger på Send til, funktionen. Du kan sætte udløbsdato på en tilbagevende E-mail rapport. Hvilket er højst anvendeligt for websites, der har fokus på tidsbegrænsede kampagner.

Godt at se og tak til Google teamet.

Google Analytics – kig på trends, for Googles Analytics tal er forkerte

Google Analytics er et fantastisk værktøj, og gratis. Men tallene er ikke korrekte, det er guestimater, dvs kalkulerede gæt fra Googles side, om dine besøgende.

Det gør så heller ikke noget, fo arbejdet med webstatistik/tracking, skal handle om udvikling og trends.

Det er ikke nogen hemmelighed, og jeg faldt over denne artikel om Google Analytics datagrundlag, som også fremhæver pointen.

Jeg vil dog gerne skamrose Google for at stille produktet gratis til rådighed, selv om de naturligvis får deres værdi ud af det også. Havde netop en længere korrespondence med deres support i Irland. Yderst imødekommende support, på dansk. Tak for det.

Google + cheat sheet – tips og tricks

Ærligt talt så er Google Plus gået en smule i stå. Konceptet fik hurtigt mange brugere, og vokser efter Googles egne udmeldelser, stadig. Jeg ser dog ikke denne udvikling. Fra starten var jeg super positiv, forventede en konkurrent til Facebook med det samme, men igen, ting tager tid.

Jeg tager mig selv i at forvente at ting og udvikling altid sker hurtigt. Efter så mange år i web branchen, vil jeg måske ligefrem sige at ting tager længere tid nu. Udviklingsprojekter bliver mere omfattende, på trods af web 2.0 muligheder og super fede værktøjer på nettet.

Nå nok om den snak. Jeg ville faktisk bare lægge dette “snydeark” for Google Plus på nettet. Faldt det på en blog, og synes selv det gav mig noget. Der er nogle gode genveje til Google +. Nogle minder om Twitters funktioner, og andre er hentet i Google andre produkter.

Google Snyd Tips Tricks

Google + blev til +Dig

Google har opdateret sin startside. Lige nu vil de gerne fortælle at du er “+Dig”. 

Går du på google.dk, ser du i dag en fil pil der peger på deres lille ændring. Google+ er blevet til +Dig. De har skiftet navnet i Google topmenu på deres sider. Umiddelbart er navnet “+Dig” ikke fedt. Det fungerer ikke rigtigt på dansk, men om kort tid, har vi vel accepteret det nye navn. Sjovt nok, så kalder Google det “+Du” i deres introduktion. Ups Google 🙂 +Du - Goolge Plus Dig

Det er ikke lang tid siden, at de introducerede topmenuen på alle deres sider. Det var selvfølgelige med den interesse, at binde flere produkter sammen, og fortælle om alle de ting de tilbyder.

 

Google Menu +Dig

Jeg har tidligere skrevet, at jeg savnede en egentlig integration mellem produkterne, men må sige at de er ved at være der. Det kan ikke vare længe før de kan tilbyde en betalingsindgang, ud over deres Google Aps-produkt. Jeg er storforbruger af deres services, og vil gerne betale et beløb for adgang til deres produkter, generelt. Jeg kan finde på mange bonus  features, der kunne få brugerne til at betale. Jeg savner dog stadig en bedre integration med Google Docs og særligt en Offline-mulighed.

Google Engage – online markedsføring på dansk – Gratis

Google tilbyder online markedsføring med AdWords, tracking med Analytics, bannerprogrammer med AdSense osv osv.

Google vil rigtigt gerne binde brugerne og virksomhederne tæt sammen med deres produkter. Indtjeningsgrundlaget for Google er helt klar reklamer, og deres program “Google Engage” hjælper konsulenter, bureauer osv, med at forstå og udnytte deres produkter.

 

Der er mulighed for at komme ind i deres program og modtage undervisning gratis. Jeg synes selv jeg er godt med på deres mange produkter, men har tilmeldt mig for at blive stærkere og tilføje en dybere viden og dermed rådgivning fra min arbejdsplads. Jeg glæder mig til at se det an, men skal først godkendes af Google. Nu må vi se 🙂

Google+ på mobilen – Se din “strøm” i nærheden (nearby stream)

Google+ kommer som en App til din smartphone, Iphone, Android osv. Når du bruger den og ser på din “Strøm” i Google+, har mobilen en særlig lækker feature.

 

Vælg din Google+ Strøm på iPhone

iPhone – Google Plus start

Du kan nemlig vælge at se en Strøm af indlæg fra andre Goole+ brugere der er i nærheden. En super smart feature, som også ville være dejlig at have på computeren. Der er der desværre ikke denne mulighed, men det burde være muligt, omend lidt mindre præcist, at bestemme din “location”.

Google Plus Strøm

Google+ Nearby Stream

 

Du kan vælge din “Google+ Støm” i mobilen. App’en er ikke på danske endnu, så der hedder det “Stream”. Gå ind under dine streams. Du vil kunne “slide” din finger til højre eller venstre, og der finder du så Stømmen fra dem der befinder sig i nærheden.

 

Bemærk at Google+ App’en vil vise den adresse den mener du befinder dig på. Det ses i toppen, under Streams. Hvis ikke du er klar over det, så kan du, i hvert fald på en iPhone, trække “siden ned”, så vil din sidens indhold blive opdateret.

Google Plus: 1 billion items shared and received in a single day

Not bad, “1 billion items shared and received in a single day”.

According to Larry himself. He wrote (Source Google + post from Larry Page). Full quote below. And 550.000 new Androids a day. Seems to me that Google is finally doing what I’ve been waiting for so long, connecting the killer apps. Mobile, entertainment, mail, web, search, social etc etc.

I’m still waiting for them to connect Google Reader with Sparks. But I think Sparks will be what the Semantic web was meant to be, a smart understanding of the social and communication part of our web interactions.

 

Google Plus Statistics

 

 

“We are in the middle of our quarterly earnings call right now. Here are the remarks I just gave. One key stat: Over 10M Google+ users!

-Larry
———-
Good afternoon everyone–thanks for joining us today

It’s exciting to be on the call today and to share directly with you the progress we have made in my first quarter as CEO

As you will have seen from our press release we had a great quarter–with revenue up by 32 per cent year on year and a new record for quarterly revenue at over $9 billion!

We have substantially increased our velocity and execution this quarter–a key goal of mine since taking over as CEO

It’s why I created a new, product focused management structure–with a clear leader responsible for each product area

This new management team is working together fabulously … and has already achieved a lot in just three months

First we launched Google+ to field trial invitation only

Our goal with Google+ is to make sharing on the web like sharing in real life, as well as to improve the overall Google experience
Circles let you choose with precision who you are sharing with. Not surprisingly this has been very well received, because in real life, we share different things with different people.
Hangouts allow for serendipitous interactions. Like in real life when you run into a few friends. It gives you seamless and fun multi user video and it’s really amazing!

Last quarter, we launched the +1 button in search results and ads–enabling users to recommend stuff they liked, and have those recommendations show up in the search results of people they know

This quarter, we released +1 buttons to the entire web, and many sites like Huffington Post, the Washington Post and Best Buy have added +1 buttons

Google+ is still only in field trial with limited access as we scale the system
Users have to be invited, sign up with a profile in order to use it

However, the growth on Google+ has been great–and I’m excited to release some new metrics for you today
Over 10M people have joined Google+ 
Great achievement for the team

There’s also a ton of activity
We are seeing over 1 billion items shared and received in a single day

Our +1 button is already all over the web
It’s being served 2.3 billion times a day

So while we have a lot of work still to do, we are really excited about our progress with Google+

Google+ is also a great example of another focus of mine–beautiful products that are simple and intuitive to use and was actually was one of the first products to contain our new visual redesign.

We also launched that beautiful, consistent and simpler design on our home page, Gmail and calendar with many more products soon to come.

Greater focus has also been another big feature for me this quarter–more wood behind fewer arrows

Last month, for example, we announced that we will be closing Google Health and Google PowerMeter

We’ve also done substantial internal work simplifying and streamlining our product lines

While much of that work has not yet become visible externally, I am very happy with our progress here

Focus and prioritization are crucial given our amazing opportunities 

Indeed I see more opportunities for Google today than ever before

Because believe it or not we are still in the very early stages of what we want to do

Even in search … which we’ve been working on for 12 years there have never been more important changes to make
For example this quarter we launched a pilot that shows an author’s name and picture in the search results, making it easier for users to find things from authors they trust.

Of course when we started doing search, people thought we were crazy–they said there was no money to be made in search over and above a bit of banner advertising

Most new internet businesses have had the same criticism

Fast forward to today–it feels like we are watching the same movie again in slow motion

We have tremendous new businesses being viewed as “crazy”
Android
We actually have a new metric to report of 550,000 Android Devices activated a day! 
That’s a HUGE number even by Google’s standards
Chrome
It’s the fastest growing browser
With over 160 million users

People rightly ask how we will monetize these businesses?

And of course I understand the need to balance the short term with the longer term needs because our revenues and growth serve as the engine that funds our innovation

But our emerging high usage products can generate huge new businesses for Google in the long run, just like search
And we have tons of experience monetizing successful products over time

Well run technology businesses with tremendous consumer usage make a lot of money over the long term

I think about our products in three separate categories

First, there is search and our ads products, the core driver of revenue for the company. Nikesh and Susan are going to talk more about ads later in the call

Next, we have products that are enjoying high consumer success–YouTube, Android and Chrome. We are investing in these in order to optimize their long-term success

Then we have our new products–Google+ and Commerce and Local. We are are investing in them to drive innovation and adoption

Overall, we are focused on long term absolute profit and growth, as we have always been–and I will continue the tight financial management we have had in the last two years, even as we are making significant investments in our future

I would like to finish on our people

Great companies are no greater than the efforts and ingenuity of their people

So continuing to hire the best, keeping them happy and well rewarded is crucial to our future

Many of you will be interested in hiring–whether we hired a few hundred more or less than you expected this quarter. But we will optimize headcount for the long term and the opportunities we see

So I’m happy with the investments we’ve made in people, though we’re probably even a little ahead of where we need to be with headcount growth at the edge of what is manageable now

It is easy to focus on things we do that are speculative (e.g., driverless cars) but we spend the vast majority of our resources on the core products. We may have a few small speculative projects happening at any given time, but we’re very careful stewards of shareholder money — we’re not betting the farm on this stuff.

All of us at Google want to create services that people across the world use twice a day … just like a toothbrush!

And we strive to make those services beautiful, simple and easy to use

That way we can provide huge benefit to the world

We have made a good start but we are at only 1 per cent of what’s possible … Google is just getting started … and that is why I am here–working hard to lead this company to the next level
Thank You. And again, we had a great quarter.”
