Hi All,

Just got a few referrals from eval.google.com/happier/quest/rateall.py?.... followed by a question number and couple of different email addresses.

Never seen it before anyone know what it is?

Two of the ip addresses are from google, could it be a hand check or something? Sites completely clean so doesn't matter if it was!

It isn't something I've ever seen, but definitely needs investigating.

evaluation... happier... rate...... sounds like something to do with the smile/frown in the toolbar. Perhaps checking on sites that have overwhelming happiness and giving them a small manual boost?

You can find a few references to it by googling "eval.google" without the .com

Anyone have a Google Account? :)

From the google link above:

In the future, your Google account will provide access to all Google programs requiring sign in including:

* Google AdWords
* Google Store
* Google in Your Language program

can somebody explain what's that second item? Is it simply a reference to froogle? or are they planning something along the line of a yahoo store? probably froogle, but what do I know!

Anyone have a Google Account? :)

Quick enough to get one... but I get this when I go to that page. (Confirm your account via e-mail first).

You are not authorized to view this page.

Humm... Got me. GG?

Thanks for your replies.

I never seen it before and had three in one day, all fetching the same page. I originally thought the toolbar but doubt that would have email addresses attached.

The full referrer is .py?question=XX&qdir=q.random.XXXXXXXX-XXXXXX&user=XXX%40google.com

X's are numbers apart from the last which is someones email so I won't give that out! and I don't know if the numbers point to something to do with my site so I haven't posted them either, hope you don't mind?

I got three requests, 2 with google emails whose ips are registered to google and a yahoo which is not.

I doubt it's a check on a high happiness as its a farely new page and not even listed yet.

Is this the google store that they are mentioning and not froogle? https://www.googlestore.com
Hmm won't let me let it be a clicky.

Anyone for a google towel?

I like the googlestore. :) I'll have to check into the eval.google thing--thanks for mentioning it!

Thanks GG!

OMG! The "I'm Feeling Lucky" boxers, what a hoot! Now I'll start the lineup to affiliate-sell those. <grin>
