What Is Web 3.0 & How Is It Different From Web 2.0

March 6, 2010

Web 2.0 refers to the web related applications that are designed for the facilitation of interactive information sharing, user centered designing and collaboration on the World Wide Web. Some examples of web 2.0 are social networking sites, blogs, mashups, video sharing sites, so on and so forth. In comparison of the non-interactive websites that only provide access to their users to the basic functions like passive viewing of the provided information; web 2.0 also provides to its users advanced options like interacting with other users and even changing website content.

Web 3.0 or Semantic web is a concept being currently evolved and developed on the world wide web under which is the facility to provide the meaning of the information and the services available on the web, thus making possible for the web to aptly understand and thus accurately supply for the satisfaction of the requests and demands of the people and machines that make use of the world wide web. At the base level, the semantic web comprises of a set of design principles, collaborative working groups. It also includes a wide variety of enabling technologies. The complete advancement of this technology has yet not been attained. Some elements of the semantic web are still being expressed as prospective future possibilities that are still to be implemented or realized.

Technicians believe that web 3.0 is basically an extension or modification of web 2.0. It is coming to be known as the third generation web. The major difference between the two lies in the fact that Web 2.0 is more about social networking and other means of mass collaboration with the blurring of lines at times between the content creator and the user whereas Web 3.0 is based on “intelligent” web applications using:

  • Natural language processing i.e. use of simpler language and not coded language.
  • Machine-based learning and reasoning which will find use even in the fields of education and research.
  • A variety of intelligent applications.

The main objective of the new web 3.0 is to tailor online searching and requests specifically to users’ preferences and needs and to filter out a plethora of unnecessary search items which occur while searching through web 3.0.

Common Computer Netwoking Problems

Feb 15, 2010

With expansion of business, there is a need of an intelligent and fast network of computers within a workplace. For that careful planning  is required. Even when you have your network ready, you may encounter few networking issues in daily life. Here I have jotted down common networking issues encountered and methods to solve them.

Duplication of IP addresses : Every computer or a laptop on a network has a IP address. This is a unique set of numbers used to identify a particular machine. At times due to human error, two machines in the same network can get assigned the same IP address as a result “IP conflict” can occur which may hamper performance of those two machine on the network. To tackle that, all you need to do is to change IP address to make it unique within your network.

Problem in connectivity : Connectivity problem is the most common problem encountered in any network. It can occur due to number of causes ranging from loose connection to improper configuration of hubs, switches or routers. First thing to be done when you encounter connectivity problem is to check for the networking connection for your PC. If there is any disconnection, you will need to reconnect and test it. After checking the physical connections of your computer, check if common device’s (switch, hub or router) cabling is properly connected and you can view green light at the connection port. If there is still connectivity problem, then you may need to configure hub, router or switch as the case may be.

Software-related problems : Once all the physical aberrations have been taken care of, but your network is still not responding; you need to check the network for any kind of a software related problem which might range from WINS, DNS to even registry issues. You may need to alter the configuration or reinstall the software that has malfunctioned.

Slow connectivity : If you notice that your network is taking exceptionally long to function and the speed is very slow, it might be resulting from numerous network collisions. In poorly planned networks, this problem is quite frequent as the network gets flooded due to excessive simultaneous transfer of data and information. This problem can be tackled by using zipped and compressed files and folders to transfer heavy data and by using data travelers. This reduces the pressure from the networks and boosts its speed and functioning.

These are few common networking issues that are encountered in daily life. For expert networking solutions feel free to contact Centex Technologies. At Centex Technologies (Based in Killeen, Central Texas) we provide networking and system maintenance solutions to individuals, corporates and businesses.

Latest In Google Optimization

Jan 17, 2010

GOOGLE is the name that strikes your mind first when you want to find something on internet. In true sense, Google is the synonym for internet. If you are looking for bakeries, florists, plumbers or even internet developers, all you need to do is to go to Google and search and find the right source to match your requirements.  Google is the lifeline for businesses that are looking to be found by clients all over the world.

Generally a normal user would just browse through the first couple of pages in Google while searching for what they need. If they do not find what they want, they would in general experiment by changing or modifying the keyword they use for searching. Keeping this in mind Google brings up the most relevant searches on the first page for different keywords. For this, Google uses an algorithm which would measure the site on its relevance with the keyword being fed in by the user to get the best and the most relevant result on the first page.

Although Google’s idea is simple, the implementation hasn’t been that easy.  There are many webmasters who keep researching on the Google algorithm and try to make changes to their websites according to what Google likes. This is a way to reach the first page of Google for a related key phrase. However, Google knows about such elements and to avoid such websites Google keeps changing their algorithm enabling such tricksters to keep making changes to their websites. The latest change that Google has made is very recent which has started taking effect January onwards.

Google has now emphasised on the way site code is written. Google wants the code of your site to be clean and easily read. In brief, Google wants you to keep the code (HTML and scripts) to be short and sweet. However, this is not the only thing to be able to see your site on first page of Google. There are others as well, but if you can just follow the Google guidelines on optimization, your site will surely rank well.

To sum it up all, type Google Guidelines for Optimization on Google and find out how Google wants you to build your website to be indexed easily by Google.

Centex Technologies provides Search Engine Optimization services across globe.
