October 2012

Large number of E-commerce companies’ keep on organizing trade events throughout India to impart knowledge to business owners regarding growth in internet and opportunities for business to grow by using technologies. I got a chance to participate in one of these events organized by Google & TradeIndia.com. The event was sponsored by VeriSign & was held on 19th of October, 2012 at Fortune Park Klassik Hotel, Ludhiana.

It was great visiting this event. Although the event was meant for Ludhiana Industrialists who have little knowledge about websites & registering on sites like TradeIndia.com etc, but I came across lot of good things in the event. There were professionals from Google & TradeIndia.

Mr. Sachin Sharma, from Google shared the current trends in Google searches and shared data about current E commerce market of India & expected market in 2015 that is expected to reach at 4000 Crore INR by 2015. The current user base of internet is 11% in India & is expected to reach at 40% by 2015.

Mr. Bikky Khosla from tradeIndia.com shared his experiences & discussed the procedure of registering the business on tradeIndia & various benefits to businessmen. He shared that replying to a query within 24 hours gives a good impression to prospect. He also told that the business should be registered with the type of business, not the exact name of business, for instance, register as onlineshopping123.com instead of yournameshoppingsite.com.
Then we had, Mr. B Surnam, President of Ras Al Khaimah‘s India operations elaborated the procedure how to set up business in free trade zone at Ras Al Khaimah in UAE.

At last, it was a question & answer session. Many people asked questions from all the presenters.
I really learnt a lot from this event. As the businessmen were asking questions, I came to know about the level they think up to during a business settlement in UAE & registering business online.
It was a great event to attend.

As we all know, we made it! First time in the history of Ludhiana, we organized a SEO meetup in which few SEO professionals participated. We expected more than 40 SEO professionals to attend this meetup but only 26 were able to make it. We are not discouraged by this rather we are encouraged by the success of this SEO meetup. All the SEO professionals participated in open discussions and exchanged views on many SEO topics including Panda, Penguin and other Google Updates. (more…)

Gravity Informatics Pvt. Ltd. has organized a free meetup in Ludhiana to discuss the recent Google updates that are troubling the SEO Professionals all over the world. The meetup was arranged in Ludhiana City in Punjab State of India & experts & SEO Professionals from different IT & Web Development companies participated in this event. This kind of meetup was arranged for the 1st time in Ludhiana by Managing Director of Gravity Informatics Pvt. Ltd., Mr. Sunil Kapoor.

 

Mr. Hiren Patel, CEO of Gravity Informatics said, “Ludhiana is the industrial hub of India, but the city somewhere lacks in IT industry. We have seen IT & SEO (Search Engine Optimization) professionals sharing thoughts & ideas through meetup groups through India, but why not Ludhiana?

The primary reason for holding this meetup was to facilitate discussion in a face to face manner. In this way, ideas can be discussed, brainstormed and expressed in a free-form manner. It is equally important for all of us to organize and attend meetups that are held in our city & in nearby areas because being together, we can achieve those targets that are difficult for us to achieve individually.

We are going to organize more meetups in Ludhiana discussing on different topics related to IT & Search Engine Optimization. There is open invitation to all the IT professionals to join the meetup group created by Gravity Informatics Pvt. Ltd. Anyone can join this group by visiting the following URL:
