Google launched G4India, $10 billion fund to digitize india


A new Rs 75,000-crore fund has been announced by Google to help accelerate India's digital economy, its Chief Executive Officer Sundar Pichai said today, asserting that "we are proud to support" Prime Minister Narendra Modi's vision. "Today at #GoogleForIndia we announced a new $10B digitization fund to help accelerate India's digital economy. 

We're proud to support PM @narendramodi's vision for Digital India - many thanks to Minister @rsprasad & Minister @DrRPNishank for joining us," the 48-year-old Google CEO wrote in a tweet. 

Meanwhile G4IN was trending on Google today . A majority of India's digital population accessed the internet via their mobile phones. In 2018, about 29 percent of the country's total population were mobile internet users, and this was expected to grow to over 35 percent, or approximately 500 million users by 2023. India's internet users registered double digit growth to reach 627 million in 2019, driven by rapid internet growth in rural areas, according to market research agency Kantar IMRB

Internet usage in the country has exceeded half a billion people for first time,driven by rural internet growth and usage. India continues to be the world’s second-largest internet market after China. But what makes it more irresistible to Silicon Valley companies is that it also happens to be the largest untapped internet market in the globe. 

With close to 900 million people without internet connectivity still, there’s little doubt that the Next Billion Users are going to come from India.The introduction of the government’s Digital India initiative hand in hand with the increasing internet penetration over the recent years, resulted in the country’s digital population amounting to approximately 688 million active users as of January 2020

The traffic in the world’s second largest internet market at this stage was largely dominated by mobile internet users.The arrival of Reliance Jio services in 2007, provided people in the country with schemes and subsidies that were not only attractive, but easily affordable, irrespective of their income levels and socio-economic classes. The impact was almost instant, with over 60 percent of the mobile data traffic coming from Jio services in less than ten years of its launch. 

The future holds greater promise The number of internet users had increased over the years in rural as well as the urban areas . It seemed likely from previous trends that the launch of the Jio fixed line broadband service, called Gigafiber might aid in the already increasing internet penetration across the country. Along with the demonetization in late 2016, digitization penetrated the country at a staggering rate, nearly 50 percent in 2019.

Internet Start Up Review :Zomato

Name of the Start Up : ZomatoCategory :Online Food ReviewFounders:Deepinder Goyal and Pankaj ChaddahNationality: IndiaLife before start up : Employed  at Bain consultancy

Little did Goyal and Chaddah imagine when they were waiting  in the line at the Office cafeteria one day in 2008  that " they had created one of India's biggest consumer Internet Company

What if "  they could browse through the nearby restaurants on  the web,  zero in to a " Take home" counter and place the order online or perhaps click to call.

that was the time when the couple founder at Zomata decided to quit their jobs and get into their first love " starting an internet venture that would tap into the wisdom of crowds.. users could rate the  food joints, write their experiances on the cuisine , cust service and quality  which in turn could be "curated and rated by anyone  who ordered the food  . This was a viral self sustaining  model, which added a new distribution channel for the  Food Joints, and for consumers, they could order something via a click in their mouse ...and have their food delivered at home"

Zomato  now has a presence in 11 countries and lists 180,000 restaurants. Zomato gets over  15 million visits a month with  monthly revenues touching over 30 million

5 years ago in 2008 zomato revenue numbers barely exceeded  Rs 1.5 lakh a month

Apart from being a Indian media's biggst and hottest  internet poster boy, it ensured that  zomato's valuation was equally attractive, with latest reports claiming that Zomato is worth more that 100million

Zomato was nurtured  and supporte by PE among which  it raised d $37 million from Sequoia Capital and Info Edge India Ltd to fund its expansion in overseas markets.

Zomato's valuation has jumped as well, with some media reports pegging it close to Rs 1,000 crore after it received investor funding for the fifth time in three years. On November 6, Info Edge, which runs job portal, and venture capital firm Sequoia Capital invested a total of Rs 227 crore in Zomato. Info Edge had invested in Zomato at each of the previous four stages, too. It has now pumped in a total of Rs 143 crore in Zomato and holds a 50.1 per cent stake.

Online Tool to Track Your Customer Loyalty [INFOGRAPHIC]

How the Net Promoter Score Helps You Benchmark Customer Loyalty [INFOGRAPHIC]: A Harvard Business Review study found that 48% of customers who had negative experiences with a company told 10 or more people. Eek! Talk about some bad word of mouth! Not exactly something you want in a business, is it? So if you don't have a clue about how satisfied your customers are with your products or services, you might want to consider putting a system in place to figure out just that.

. The Net Promoter Score, or NPS, is a customer satisfaction metric that measures, on a scale of 1-10, the degree to which people would recommend your company to others. To calculate NPS, you subtract the percentage of "detractors" (customers who wouldn't recommend you) from the percentage of "promoters" (customers who would recommend you). Obviously, the fewer detractors, the better.

Search Optimization and Infographics: Why Matt Cutts is Right

In a recent interview with Eric Enge of Stone Temple Consulting Google’s famed " Search Guru" Matt Cutts  created a flutter across the webmaster community  when he gave the impression that : Infographic" was not seen" as something that would effect  the quality of the website , and does not influence the parameters of at makes a quality website. The interview primarily centered on SEO and delved into link building, brand building, link profiles, content differentiation, Panda, Penguin and others. 

 This is what Matt had to say on Infographics

I would not be surprised if at some point in the future we did not start to discount these infographic-type links to a degree. The link is often embedded in the infographic in a way that people don’t realize, vs. a true endorsement of your site

So what is your take on it . why should the webmaster who do not have infographic, loose out to one that does. Infographics are used as link baits.. and when demand and supply side of web in terms of  Page weight quality starts to become less, its obvious " Googl Algorithm: will create some other parameter, as the supply side of infographics ( assuming it serves as a link bait) outstrips the supply.
