    Google has started displaying a location under the search bar to the left. There’s an option to change the location, or to let Google auto-detect, but I don’t want a location displayed at all. How do I stop Google from showing what it thinks is my location under the search bar on the left?

    Obama claimed he would not raise taxes on anyone making under $250,000, not on penny he said.

    We know he smokes and can afford the tax increase on cigs, but aren’t there a few people who make less than $250,000 who will also have to pay this tax? Or is this cig ax only for smokers who make more than $250,000 like himself?

  9. I just want to use the same google page, but it keeps changing. How can I stop it?

    I have recently launched a new website. I just want to know how long does it take for Google to recognize backlinks to my site. I am currently generating backlinks by posting on different forums, blog commenting and directory submission. It has been a week now but still there are 0 backlinks to my site according to Google.

    Yahoo is relatively quicker than Google in recognizing backlinks. Does anyone have any idea how long does it take for Google to recognize backlinks to my website?
