I am a Blogger since 2007 and was happy that my posts with my designs always topped the Google Image search until recently. It was in the first or second page in its category. Now a days it is not seen any where on the screen. The First pages are overtaken by the Web design Firms with better SEO. They have websites and the Blogs are relegated to the back pages. Even marketing sites like India Mart are listing my designs above e blogger. I am having good hits daily on my site. But Google has some how dropped their priority I guess.

Google Search Mistakes

I searched on Google Images by typing the word "Frock Designs" and I got 70% of the images of women in their 20's and 30's wearing Churidars and Gagras etc. posing as Models. Just a few images of girls in their Teens or younger wearing Frocks. Frocks are not meant for these grown up girls. Google has to get the sense right on their search programs I guess.

Dhan Theras in Kerala

Dhan Theras was a wet fire cracker in Kerala so was Diwali. The advertisers generally were pushing Akshaya Tritiya and Dhan Theras here in Kerala to woo the customers for some years. But now that Dhan Theras has got a cold response from Mallus just because they understood the logic ( or may be not) of getting more wealth if someone buys costly things like "GOLD" "HOMES" Expensive "ELECTRONIC GADGETS" or "SAREES" on these Auspicious Days.

Diwali Sales in Kerala

Diwali, the biggest Hindu festival in India is not celebrated in Kerala with much enthusiasm. But Onam is what Keralites are interested in. So Diwali is not a favourite for the Business community and Advt. fraternity here. It was evident in the Newspapers. The local businesses had a couple of advt. The desi corporates had some. Even the mood is not so upbeat in neighbouring Tamilnadu due to "Neelam" cyclone effect. Only the Textile shops there had some rush. The Gold shops did not see much rush. People (the aam aadmi) were just not in the festive mood.

Malayalam Newspaper Advertisement Trends of 2012

The Popular Malayalam Dailies are seeing a huge fall in Advertisement revenues from Local Clients. It is evident in the last couple of years. The Big spenders from Jewellery, Textile brand names are playing it more cautiously by releasing Colour advt. Full page, Half page etc. only during the Festival seasons. The Malayalam dailies are getting ads of Big Indian companies and MNC's during the off season. The Electronics, Automobile and Home Appliance brands are getting media spaces for a bargain tariff. Newspaper ads are going out of the reach of even big local brands in Kerala.
