My articles on Knol, Encyclopedia Google

Google launched its call encyclopedia Tuber, what at first appeared to be a clone of Wikipedia, but after a quick tour and reading some guidelines I realized that they encourage the writing of own opinions, unlike Wikipedia using more encyclopedic style without opinions and everything properly referenced. Furthermore, Knol nothing prevents multiple people to write articles on the same subject, in other words, no single entries as in Wikipedia. Article owner can also set whether to accept contributions or not, and accepted case has the option to approve them before they are displayed, acabando assim com ovandalismo”.

Another feature is that Knol, unlike Wikipedia, it has ads. Ads are Adsense, and Article owner can put your own Adsense account to receive profits. They noted the great Google balcony? Unlike Wikipedia where volunteers are mostly fact volunteers, Knol writers will have the profit incentive with Adsense. And Google Adsense as the owner will get a handsome return.

But Knol is not free of criticism, many people are accusing Google of favoring Knol in the search results of your search engine, and duplicate content from other sources end up appearing in searches in front of the original URLs. The Paulo Faustino wrote about it here.

I then decided to put some collaborations to see what the Knol and such content will appear more prominently than in their original locations, which is not hard enough that Google goes ignoring me since I moved domain.

I wrote an article about Master System, with adapted text of my FAQ on Master Land, also put two articles I wrote for the Skooter Blog with minor adaptations, on dual boot of Windows Vista e Windows XP, MySQL no Windows Vista and Apache not Windows Vista. Finally also put a monograph on my Web Engineering, which is also available in my personal page.

Agora vamos ver no que vai dar

Olá colega, obrigado pela referência.
O meu artigo hoje já estava na 3ª página de resultados do Google e a subir. Vamos ver até que ponto o Google puxa por ele para uma das posições cimeiras. Interessante analisar isso.

Boa sorte com os seus conteúdos. Depois conte-me como correu.

Greetings,

Or,

desculpe estar invadindo seu blog assim, mas só pra avisar que eu encontrei uma maneira de ajustar, temporariamente, a data e a hora no D-Link 500B (não achei o e-mail ou form de contato):

Obrigado pela correção no artigo que fiz sobre a Dealextreme. Conheci seu site logo após a publicação dele, se tivesse conhecimento antes, o artigo seria muito mais completo, Assinei seu feed para acompanhar as suas compras.

Se fosse possível, poderia me adicionar no msn, para eu tirar umas dúvidas particulares sobre o site.
