TouchGraph GoogleBrowser V1.00
Provides a hands-on way to visualize networks of interrelated information

Check out TouchGraph GoogleBrowser V1.00 [touchgraph.com]. It uses the Google API and displays related (similar) pages in a graph. Check out the screen shots or try it yourself. :)
Needs at least Java, JavaScript and pop-up windows. :(

TouchGraph provides a hands-on way to visualize networks of interrelated information. Networks are rendered as interactive graphs, which lend themselves to a variety of transformations. By engaging their visual image, a user is able to navigate through large networks, and to explore different ways of arranging the network's components on screen.

Very neat resource! :) :) :) :)
I give it 4 smiles!

If only they could make in HTML/gif based. That would make it 5 smiles.

I couldn't get it to work in ie, nn, or opera!?

Doh, requires Java...

Absolutly, hands down the coolest seo app I've ever seen.

I guess I don't get it. It shows links.

What I do get is that I was prompted to install a version of Java with a critical vulnerabilty that requires the reapplication of a windows update patch I installed three months ago.

Paranoia strikes deep, I System Resored the mess off my machine.

And I thought Kartoo was way cool ;)

Once I (and others here that are willing to share their insights) figure out how to use this, I can only imagine the possibilities.

interesting.. enough to spend 1 hour last night downloading Java2 on a slow dial up to try it.

It didnt seem to work on many URL's for me - just the larger domains. Still find the related mapping tools like kazoo and mapstan better in stimulating ideas for me - but this one is specific to google. Perhaps if t would accept URLS's of our own sites it would be even more interesting.

Wow,

This will take link campaign's to the next level. So much to learn!

As mentioned in this thread this tool needs it's own forum here at webmasters world.

Fun Fun

Awesome tool - I've been searching for something like this for quite a while. Would be great if it displayed root PR for each domain.

Seems to work on all domains now. maybe a memory problem or maybe the API quota ran out.

It seems to depend on Google Directory a lot. Im still finding Kartoo better in visualizing a subject area and the similarity and interrealtionships of sites within it. But this is certainly interesting. Domain and Google specific rather than subject specific.

I tried to install the Java and I get an error that I can't install because I have an uninstaller installed. What's the deal with that?</sidenote>

ohmygawd! What a neat way to avoid doing mundane web chores.

chyio - thanks for mentioning Kartoo! I am amazed, flabberghasted (sp?) and spellbound! I didn't know this kind of tool was available for common folk. Of course, I like Kartoo better since I show up as the hub for many of my kw whereas with TouchGraph (and google), I don't.

How am I ever going to finish redoing my sites now? ;)

Wow this is really REALLY cool, I mean what with this graph it makes everything so much clearer. Never thought things could get better but clearly they have. It does so much, presents the information in such an excellent way I cannot believe that this was not always on the cards.

To think, in all the years I have been doing SEO never had I thought or even imagined in my wildest dreams that something like this would be possible.

Wow, amazing. Such content such diversity, such an amazing tool.

What it's for is anybody's guess, but hey we're online and data clarity was never really important, just ways to show the same thing over and over again.

I'm a convert can't wait until I am able to view all the sites linked to me by www2.google.com or www3.google.com. in this way. Then there is the google dance, oh joy, oh rapture.

Keep it coming....keep it real!

Can you imagine (warning, it's a scary thought) what the search engines could do with this?

and folks wonder how they discover cross linking - there's the quintessential example of that.

What do different colors of links mean ?

Also, is there a difference between double-clicking on a node and expending it ?

Thanks.

I hear you guys talking about links. This tool seems to be about 'related sites', not links. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Another one that has been around for a while. I like it better, but some might not like its privacy implications. It can be VERY useful.

Looks like they have run out of Google "keys". I'd think it would be worth Googles time to donate some keys to these folks.

If you close all of your browsers, then the java icons should go away.
