Hello, this is Google, your operator, speaking


Google has begun testing a new click-to-call service that lets people speak with advertisers on its search results page without having to pick up the phone and dial.

A Web surfer can click a phone icon adjacent to an ad, enter his or her own phone number and then click a "connect for free" button. Google's service calls the advertiser's phone number and when the Web surfer picks up the receiver on his phone, he or she hears ringing as the call to the advertiser is connected, according to a Google Click-to-Call frequently-asked-questions page.

Unlike voice over Internet Protocol, a technology that sends voice transmission over the Internet, this service appears to connect two parties over the regular phone lines. However, Google declined to provide more details, including the specifics of the technology employed.

"We won't share your telephone number with anyone, including the advertiser," the FAQ states. "When you're connected with the advertiser, your number is blocked so the advertiser can't see it. In addition, we'll delete the number from our servers after a short period of time."

Google to sponsor Manchester United?


Big Blue also in the race to land lucrative Red Devils shirt deal…

Manchester United football club is in "advanced" talks with a number of global high-tech giants about replacing Vodafone as its shirt sponsor, according to reports.

Vodafone announced last week that it is ending its four-year £9m a year shirt sponsorship deal two years early at the end of this current Premiership season.

But the club's new owners, the US-based Glazer family, who won their controversial £800m takeover bid earlier this year, are now believed to be in advanced talks with some of the biggest global brands - many of them from the high-tech industry - about replacing Vodafone.

Google Testing Click-to-Call


Google searchers can turn to the phone as well as the Web to connect with advertisers.

Google is testing a new feature for its AdWords keyword ads that appear alongside natural search results: click-to-call.

Greg Yardley, author of the Yardley.ca blog, first reported seeing small green telephone handset icons next to some ads on Google.

A Google spokesman confirmed that the company was testing the service, but declined to give any details.

But Google has published a FAQ. According to it, when searchers click on the phone icon, they get a prompt to enter their phone numbers, then click a "Connect For Free" button. Google calls the number provided, then, when the searcher picks up, connects the searcher with the advertiser.

Google said it pays for the call. Not disclosed was how much it charges the advertiser for these ads, nor which vendors provides the click-to-call functionality.

Google rebrands Print project


Search giant chooses 'more descriptive' title of Google Book Search

Backlash and confusion have dogged Google's plans to scan millions of books, and, while continuing with its efforts, it has opted for a name change from Google Print to Google Book Search.

"We don't think that this new name will change what some folks think about this program," says Jen Grant, product marketing manager for Google (nasdaq: GOOG - news - people ), via the company's Web site. "But we do believe it will help a lot of people understand better what we're doing."

Google insists that its book-scan program doesn't infringe on the rights of copyright holders, and that it is simply trying to create an online card catalog that happens to have a searchable index of every word in a book.

Schoolgirl wins Google Doodle competition


Google has marked the launch of its London Googleplex by getting a London child to design a new logo for its home page

A London schoolgirl has beaten thousands of rivals and won a competition to create a doodle for Google's UK Web site.

Lisa Wainaina, aged 11, triumphed with an effort called 'The Day of the Child'. As a reward for her efforts, Wainaina received an upper case G of frosted glass, while her school won an interactive whiteboard.

Wainaina's winning entry was due to go up on Google at 1700 Wednesday, but at the time of writing it was not yet visible, due to "technical problems", according to Google.

The 'Doodle for Google' school challenge was open to 4,000 pupils at 25 London schools. It was judged by Dennis Hwang, the 26-year-old creator of the popular Google doodles that appear on Google's homepage to mark special occasions.

Google Base service goes live


Google's mysterious Google Base service went live late on Tuesday, allowing people to post any kind of information they want for free and to provide labels to describe it so others can easily find it.
The new beta service allows people to post "all types of online and offline information and images" that will be searchable on Google Base and, depending on their relevance, may be searchable on Google Search, Froogle and Google Local, the company said.
"If you have information you want to share with others, but aren't sure how to go about gaining an audience, Google Base is for you," said the frequently asked questions section of the new service.
Google has no immediate plans to serve ads on Google Base, a company spokesman said. Examples given of items people might want to post include party and event planning services, recipes, a used car listing and genome of the 1918 influenza pandemic.

Google: Analyse this


Free web diagnostic service on the way

Google is set to launch a free web analytics service that will let companies see exactly how visitors interact with their website and how their advertising campaigns are faring.
The free hosted service, which will be available in English and 16 other languages, is based on technology from San Diego-based Urchin, which Google acquired in March.
Urchin's products previously cost $495 per month and were reduced to $199 per month by Google. The full-featured analytics applications based on Urchin's technology replace the simple tracking tool that's now available with Google AdWords.
Google Analytics will let website owners see exactly where site visitors are coming from, which links on the site are getting the most traffic, which pages visitors are viewing, how long people stay on the site, which products on merchant sites are being sold and where people give up in multi-step checkout processes, said Paul Muret, an engineering director at Google and one of the founders of Urchin.

Google to bring online rental to books


And Amazon sells by the page
Google has approached at least one publishing house with a view to setting up an online book rental service, according to reports.
Originally reported in the Wall Street Journal, the story goes that Google plans to offer access to an online version of a book for one week for ten per cent of the market price. Downloading or printing the text would not be allowed.
The publisher concerned, which is unnamed but referenced as the story's source, feels that ten per cent is too low a fee to charge.

Google Personalization Out of The Gate


Google flipped the switch on Google Personalized Search on Thursday, turning it on for all users when they create a new Google account.
Personalized Search learns from a searcher's previous queries and clicks, attempting to improve results by guessing at ambiguities.
For example, if someone searches for "diamond" and clicks on Neil Diamond's fan site, a future search query will be answered with pages related to the singer at the top.
The function also stores an individual's search history, available via a link at the top of the Google search screen. Those who don't want their Google use tracked can either sign out for a search session or go the "My Account" page and turn it off.

Google Desktop 2.0


Google Desktop gives you easy access to information on your computer and from the web. It's a desktop search application that provides full text search over your email, computer files, music, photos, chats and web pages that you've viewed. By making your computer searchable, Google Desktop puts your information easily within your reach and frees you from having to manually organize your files, emails and bookmarks. It makes searching your computer as easy as searching the web with Google.

Google Desktop doesn't just help you search your computer; it also helps you gather new information from the web with Sidebar, a new desktop feature that shows you your new email, weather and stock information, personalized news and RSS/Atom feeds, and more. Sidebar is personalized automatically, without any manual configuration required (though you can certainly make your own customizations if you want to).

We've also improved your desktop search experience. With Quick Find, you can now launch applications and see search results as you type without even opening a browser. We've also extended our Outlook integration, so you can search Google Desktop with the Outlook Toolbar and see results within Outlook itself. Finally, you can search even more stuff, including your Gmail, files on network drives, many Outlook data types (including Contacts, Tasks, Calendar, Notes and Journal) and MSN Messenger chats. And if you yearn for even stronger security, you can encrypt your entire index.

Google resumes book scanning


The search giant risks the wrath of the book publishing industry as it resumes its strategy of scanning 'the libraries of the world', with a new focus on out-of-print titles
Google is to start scanning and copying the world's books again after announcing on Tuesday that its self-imposed suspension is over.
The company says it will resume scanning books but will focus on out-of-print titles and wants to get publishers' permission to scan in-print books as part of Google Print.
The company said in August it was temporarily halting scanning books after facing stiff opposition from book publishers and the prospect of a 'massive' copyright suit.
