Google 'revamping' some features
Somehow Google has a habit of introducing new tools or new features all on one single day. Yesterday seemed to be one of those days.
Contextual gadget ads
Another feature which is not new but got an adittion is YouTube insights. YouTube has got a huge reach of audience so advertising on YouTube should probably be a lot more florishing than it is right now. You can now advertise on the homepage, the search results and a watch page of a content partner.
YouTube introduced the Brand channel and contest platform (like the Symphony Orchestra) before and now gives those who own a channel like this the opportunity to analyze their visitors and videos.
You can take a look at the demographic background of the visitors, see where they are coming from and see where video's are embedded. An interesting feature is 'hot spots' in which you can see which parts of a video score best. Part of these stats are also available if you have a 'regular' account.
Google Voice is the 'revamp' of the in 2007 acquired Grandcentral. The service, for now only available in the US, will include automated voicemail transcription service, sending and receive text messages, and integration with Gmail.
With Google Voice you can call numbers from around the US and be able to do free conference calls. See this video about placing calls to find out more.
