where are the ads?
Cool little Ajax or dhtml page 2 action...click on the 2nd page for results.
Anyone know what and how Google plans on promoting this?
I especially like the feature that allows me to move my personal site into the #1 posistion.
|Reorder results |
Click the number next to a result and drag it around to reorder. This is just for fun right now, but we have some ideas for how to use this.
looks like it may be using old google data, i just added a site about 2 months ago, number 7 on google serp, but not listed in this site yet., but i like the options
Well, I gave them feedback on their features page. I only found one feature useful (the menu on the URL).
This is pretty ho-hum.
The image feature is pretty useless, IMO. Did a search on "adwords API". Got a picture of a keyboard (used as a masthead on a blog). The other two images shown no longer existed on the websites.
They'll promote it using AdWords, AdSense and of course, by buying high PR links from other non-relevant sites...
I think Pico_Train was being sarcastic.
If the "why?" is refering to why did they create searchmash, that is anyones guess
Cool; next time one of my clients complains about not being #1 for some keyword, I can send her a screen shot (with a tiny bit of manipulation in Photoshop) and show her that she is!

I'm disappointed. It took this board 93 minutes to come up with this. I would have predict it would have been under an hour. ;-)
Having the image results on the right, looks just like A9.com I like this but it does cause the page to load slower which can be annoying if you use a lot of dodgy web connections like I have over the last few years.
i searched for GOOG and found beautiful lady :)
If you search on Google for Search Mash, it has the #3 position, so they bought an ad.
Duplicate content, weak design, nothing new, the PR 0 is no surprise.
Let me restate that. It looks a lot like A9.com did when it first came out with the images to one side and the use of the Google Index. Now A9 looks a lot different than I remember, it seems like it is trying to sell me books more than ever. Maybe I'm not logined or haven't customized things correctly.

Actually, I thought of it as soon as I read the item, but I got a phone call before I could post.
I searched for my web alias and got great results... one through eighteen anyway. Then results 19 through 23 were all porn spam.
Cool interface though.
I am impressed!
It takes a lot to get me impressed...!
I am impressed with the concept of being able to move search results around. Am I dreaming...? or Google is actually moving away from links and to the user behaviour? Did they actually read my post from 6 months ago?!
Oh, yeah, the actual site is only average...
zzz...zzz....zzzzzz...(small spot of spittle on pillow).....zzz.....huh...wahh...zzzz
Did I miss something?
Kinda nice that none of my pages are listed as supplemental unlike google. However, searchmash also has none of the images from those pages either. Still adds up to google with a facelift and some new doodad stuff. whoopee.
I like it. It's clean, quick, and simple; and it gives me what I want right away.
Hmm. The ability for users to move search results around? Anybody see a future where Google uses the advice of millions of users to sort the results as they think they should, and that these results define how the default results show? Rather than the advice of website owners and links?
Sorry to goubarev if this is what you meant already.

I see a future for further third-world work-at-home opportunities pushing Google results around on the screen...
"Anybody see a future where Google uses the advice of millions of users to sort the results as they think they should, and that these results define how the default results show?"
They already have that available if that's what they wanted. Millions of people already have the google toolbar installed, it wouldn't be that hard to track user habits. But jtara probably has it right.
Besides, who would bother to move the results around (except for a few bored webmasters). On what basis, because they like the URL? How would you even know what's relevent if you haven't visited the site? Looks like another complete waste of time and resources to me. In the meantime, they can't even get their own search engine to work right.
Sure looks and sounds to me like a "live test environment" aka "rapid prototyping"... What better way to figure cool stuff out and not worry about the "brand". Or maybe they actually realize who better to compete with themselves than themselves. Why wait for the competition to innovate and fragment the market? Why not pre-empt?
I like the dropdown menu on the URL..but that's about it. Would be a nice touch if users could change the colour scheme..getting tired of the ol' blue-green links.
All I know is when I type in our site name our site logo pops up in the images on the right, but instead of linking to us it links to some foreign affiliate program that doesn't even have our site logo or a link to us on their page. Very strange :)
