Interesting, but some of the pages I saw didn't capture the linked style sheet making the page look completely different.
Man rubble88, you are on a roll today, interesting find the quotes thing the best one of them two.
oOOo one thing I notice with the google viewer thingy no POPUPS came up when it hit the sites. Very nice :P
They don't seem to be working now. Or is it just me?
and everything is working.
Working now. Must have had a little hiccup. Pretty cool features.
Those are pretty neat tools. It is a good way of quickly keeping an eye on the competition.
The viewer's great. What a neat way to check your position after a reindex! Shame you can't do it in reverse like the Oscars ... <cue drumroll> and the winner is...
Anyone else having problems viewing it in Opera, no problem with IE. My slow connection did not seem to help either.Otherwise it is a lot of fun!
Nice find Ruble88!
You folks are always quick. :)
Hope you enjoy playing with them!
By the way, I'm curious: what other things on labs do you think would be interesting? We're always looking for fun ideas. :)
GoogleGuy my wish is to see a sorting on freshness in Google results. By default revelancy is fine, but if I take in consideration the speech of one of your engineer (Jeff Dean) make in London about more freshness in your index, i'd love to see a fonctionality like that!
The quotes viewer is a neat little toy. Strange thing was that my site has no quotes listed for it - even though it is listed in ODP and it seems ODP is used for some of the quotes.
Very cool tool, Google. Good work!
WebQuotes seems fine in Opera, but Viewer isn't (Opera v6.05)
Far out! It is quite a kick to see your site pop up in the viewer!
I didn't have any comments either, or else I didn't know where to look for them....
The WebQuotes [labs.google.com] thing is very nice (do not forget to set the default "3" to a higher number).
Is that what Google will be considering more and more for context [webmasterworld.com] type relevancy?
This is the "surrounding" text that is important. [webmasterworld.com]
Nice way to go link hunting again, I wonder what the criteria are for being put in the quotes. Looks like the quotes shown is really what Google considers to be "hubs" in my view.
I found my quotes...3 of them. Life is goot.
Hi! I've found the news on French sites too this morning :-)
Very cool the slide show "game"!
I would like to see a tool which could indicate me the NEW pages entered in GG (now the new refreshed pages but really the NEW ones) because I'm looking for regular keywords to see what's new. For now, I use "Goofresh" (which I found great!) but this is for refreshed pages.
Article about it:
Like it. The quotes thing is very useful, but the slide show could have a greater impact if enough people use it. More traffic from deeper listings, pages 2, 3 ...
How about an option to view new sites only when they're first indexed? Perhaps "Pages discovered in the last month for this searchterm" or something?
Google Viewer: It's a potentially good concept, but the way it's executed it makes me feel like I'm watching The Blair Witch Project, with the camera wobbling around everywhere making you sea sick, or in this case, sites opening up in bits and pieces as they load and try to keep up with Google's default speed of 4 seconds. In one example I used, the site showing down the bottom in the preview area was a site or so behind what Google was up to in the top section. Hmmm. I wonder if Google should be showing it's cached version of the sites instead, since many of the sites don't seem to be able to keep up with Google.
Google Webquotes: This one I liked better. Many of the web quotes, though, are clearly just the same string which webmasters tell people to use when they're linking to them. In other words, you get to write your own web quotes.
How about a search this keyword for hubs/directories? You will make our life much easier, I don't know if that's the opposite of your goal though heh heh heh :)
But in all seriousness, I think hubs are very good for people searching a keyword. If I want to research galoshes instead of finding a million sites and affiliate sites selling galoshes how do I sort through the SERPS?
I'd love an option in advanced search if not google labs to do so. It's clear your algo has the pagerank which rewards proportionately more PR passthrough for less links, but you are tracking a score of more authority/hub status for more links. So we know you can do it :)
Well, Google is acting as a proxy for the site. And they proxy using the agent "Python-urllib/2.0a1", I think it would be nice if the UA was something like GoogleViewer/1.0
Just my 2 cents, but I tend to block Phython/PHP/Perl agents from my sites.
|what other things on labs do you think would be interesting? |
A lookup tool for our own sites showing us how clean or spammy Google think we are.
