I was wondering the other day if Google can see or read embedded blog posts?

For example, sometimes I want to share something from LinkedIn or Twitter, so I have the opt

Good question Roy, so, I Google searched to see if I could discover the answer... see screen print below...

These are the kind of questions I too, get to learn from when seeking an answer... so Thank YOU!

Hope this helps you.

Good morning Trish,

I hope you're doing well. Thank you for responding to my question, it's appreciated.

Interestingly enough I also put the question into Google and I believe I saw the same article you have attached. I thought I would also ask the platform to see what thoughts they had on the subject. It's great being able to ask questions and hear other people's opinions etc.

Have a great day.

Roy

Looks like you received plenty of answers. I was wondering the same.

You have fantastic responses here; kindly let us know if you require additional assistance. I hope you have figured it out.

Hi, Roy

Google can read embedded code, but it would have to navigate to the destination the code is pointing to for further info, like the content of a LinkedIn message or Tweet.

Hello Frank,

Thank you for responding to my question, it's appreciated.

That's interesting, I see where you're coming from. So it would go back to the original source and then potentially see it as content on my website?

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

Roy

Yes, it certainly can.

Slavka 👋

Thank you, Slavka, much appreciated.

It would be interesting how it interprets it, does it interpret the post like it's content on my website, I wonder?

Enjoy the rest of your day.

Yesterday I asked a question about microphones, I haven't had a chance to reply to everyone yet, but I will do it.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/video-marketing/recomm

Hey Rob,

Yes, I have noticed some of my words sounding more like I was whispering, and I use a notice cancellation software, which I'm sure is the culprit.

Google searching with voice doesn't work for me either. It cannot understand my name... and, well... Google voice refuses to serve me my own personal blog no matter how many different ways I request my website... LOL!

Obviously, I do NOT use Google's voice search.

Is there a straight forward fix?

That's a good question... one I'd LOVE to discover.

I've not checked into this as... so far (touch wood!), this has only affected a few of my words in a few of my video reviews, so... not a big issue for me.

However, I do believe it is our way of pronouncing some of our words that may be the real cause.

But again... Am I right?

LOL! I'm not sure.

Hello Trish,

Thank you for your reply, it's appreciated. I hope you're doing well.

I haven't noticed it so much on videos, to be fair, thankfully! It's more when I speak and use voice search in Google Chrome or with Dragon NaturallySpeaking. I must admit though the last couple of weeks, it has been better. It almost seems like an erratic problem, which is much harder to find the root cause!

I do use Google voice search, but sometimes it gives absolutely ridiculous answers and other times it's okay. Or other times, it just doesn't hear me at all and I have to say that word or words again!

I do agree, I think if someone is very well-spoken, voice software would probably work really well. I'm probably not the clearest of speakers and also, as our body gets tired, I think that is something else that can impair our speech.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

Roy

Roy,

I'm not a microphone 'techie', but for the problems you site, it seems to me that it could be the mic. You indicate that it's not the Dragon Naturally Speaking because that system is functioning OK at other times.

Then the fact that others are having the same problem, seems to me that it may be the mic. You also indicate that it doesn't happen all the time. Those facts have me leaning toward a manufacturing defect.

Are you able to contact your support or tech people for their assistance?

Just to add, I never have a problem with my Blue Snowball. I am not affiliated with them in any way

Hope you find the solution,

Steve



Hello Steve,

Thank you for your reply, I do appreciate it.

I have several different mics on various headsets and standalones etc., so I believe it may be more of a computer issue. It's not terrible, it's just now and then, maybe it's my voice? Sometimes I think when I start speaking I may speak in a lower pitch, possibly, but I'm not sure!

Maybe I am expecting too much from my speech software. Something I know for sure, and that is, it's much quicker for me to use Dragon NaturallySpeaking then it would be for me to type!

I was looking at the Blue Snowball reviews and the Blue Yeti reviews, they both have very good reviews.

All the best.

Roy

Hey Roy,

l hesitate to say that it may be you. I say that because if you have a quality software program such as Dragon Neurally Speaking, and a quality mic, what ever the brand, you should receive a quality recording.

Like I said in a previous response, I'm not a mic techie, but since you mentioned that you may begin with the first few words spoken a bit low, I'm wondering if there may be some mics that may be sensitive enough to miss the first few words if they are spoken lower than normal. But, that's just a guess.

I certainly do sympathize with you Roy, because if I had the problem missing the first few words in my video, it would bother me immensely.

Sure hope you can surmount tis problem, roy.

All the best,

Steve

Hi Roy, see if this helps.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fAI9NE_QDis

Thank you, Brian, for a very useful video. However, I have tried those various different settings. It looks likely creator of the video has something extra to enhance his microphone. I need to watch again.

All the best.

Roy

Very welcome.

I would suggest asking tech. or the experts Kyle and Carson directly Roy.
Good luck with the fix

Thank you, Dale, I have asked quite a few people, but no one has really came up with the right answer. Or maybe I am just expecting too much.

The software I use, Dragon NaturallySpeaking is great, but the appears to be times when it works better than others! At the moment it is working quite well, my guess is that I'm probably getting 96% accuracy. It's definitely quicker than me typing.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

Roy

how to make money?

You may follow up the training step by step at your own pace; I tend to do a bit of learning and a bit of implementing. Ticking checklists bottom of lessons, tasks, and activities asked of you to complete to set up correctly and guide you through the process.

Video Marketing

A couple of years ago, I purchased a desktop microphone from Amazon, for the purpose of video creation. However, the microphone that I planned to purchase was out of stock, so

Roy, I agree with Brian regarding the Blue Yetti and also there is the Blue Snowball which is an great microphone. It has thee simple settings, depending on what and where you are recording. I purchased my Blue Snowball about three hears ago and it was less than a hundred dollars.

The "Blue' products are a product o f 'Logitech'... in my opinion, a great company with great products.

Good luck with your search.

@SDiTullio. Can you show us the three simple settings in a video or step by step post, pl. I have one which I haven't quite used because maybe I don't know how to set it up. Thanks

I'd be happy to help.

First thing you need to do is set it up. Google the following text: "Blue Snowball microphone Guide (Orr Manual, don['t remember with word I used)

You will receive all the data regarding the microphone and there is a section describing how to install it in your computer. It's quite simple.

Next, look for the following items.

The front pf the mike has am oval; with the word 'Blue' inside the oval. That's what to talk info when you're recording.

The back of the mike has the port where you plug in the power cord. Just above the power plug-in port is a tiny switch that can be moved left and right and you can feel two clicks as you move the switch left and right.
Below the switch are the three settings engraved, 1-2-3. In the Guide or Manual you received, it tells you at what position to set the switch, depending on what and where you are recording.

There is no on/off switch, you just plug in the power cord in, and you're good to go. The directions advise that you plug the other end of the power cord directly into you computer and not to use a USB hub. All four of my USB ports were already in use, so I' m using a USB hub with no problem.

I hope that helps. The whole process is rather simple. good luck with it and if you need additional help, let me know.

Hello Steve,

Thank you for your reply; it's appreciated.

It appears that the Blue Yeti is a very popular choice, it's always good to have recommendations! I must admit that I didn't know they were Logitech products, that's good to know, as I use their products.

Have a great day.

Roy

Thank you Steve, for the very helpful information, that is very useful indeed.

I'm actually also using a USB hub, as I have a few audio devices that I use. The hub is also easier than trying to plug into the main desktop computer as it slightly awkward to get to!

All the best.

Roy

You're welcome roy. I ordered a Blue Yeti yesterday and will keep my Blue Snowball as a backup.

I always keep a backup in case of an emergency, in case the primary item becomes operative.

Take care and be safe.

Steve

Yeah... I know what you mean by award/

Steve

BLUE YETI without a doubt Roy.
Bux

Great choice :)

Best plug and play microphone I've used. Bulky but worth it.
Hope you're ok.

Good morning Dave,

I hope you're doing well. I appreciate you answering my question.

It seems like the Blue Yeti is coming out tops! It's always good to have recommendations.

Have a great day.

The Blue Snowball iCE Condenser Microphone. Do you have home movies on your computer, transferred from your video camera or smartphone? Then now is the time to add narration to those videos. Do you make videos for YouTube? This is the perfect microphone for your video productions. Do you use Skype or FaceTime? This is the ideal microphone to produce crystal clear audio for those visual and chat applications. This device plugs into a USB port and there is no need to download additional drivers. The microphone is also compatible with either a Mac or a PC.

Hello Eric,

Thank you for the information, it's appreciated. I have just been looking at your recommendation, it has good reviews as does the Blue Yeti.

Have a great day.

Roy

Blue Yeti is used and highly recommended by me, Jay (Magistudios), and countless other video creators.

Hello Marion,

I hope you're doing well.

Thank you for the information, it certainly seems like the Blue Yeti is very popular. It's good to hear about other people's experiences and it looks like the Blue Yeti is the microphone to go for.

All the best.

Roy

Blue Yeti's are quality, there are lots of options though based on design and style. If you are doing a picture in picture style video, the design and look may matter to you as that will be part of your broadcasts.

I have relatively old mics and they work very well, the new ones even better.

Hello Kyle,

Thank you for responding to my question, it's appreciated.

I have lots of answers on here and it looks like the Blue Yeti, is coming up tops! I'm not particularly worried about the design as I don't particularly want to show the microphone.

I'm not sure why, but over the last few years, it seems like everyone wants to show a massive microphone on the screen. Whereas, a few years ago, we were trying to hide microphones. I member people using the almost invisible headset microphone, which I thought was quite a good idea. I would sooner look at the person speaking rather than a microphone! But that's just my point of view, I have been wrong many times before!

Enjoy the rest of your day.
