New! Take your search further. Take a Google Tour [google.com].
They have so many extra features now, and are trying not to make the home page portal-ish, that I suspect they have discovered many people don't know what's available. Looks like a good idea to me.
Yes the "services and tools" link is new on Google.ca. Not available on French Google.ca homepage yet.
When I go on Google.com from Canada I cant see the link on homepage neither than the M L King Logo.
It seems they are lauching Froogle to the public now. I will download a lot of logfiles tomorrow! :)
WOW! what a bold statement. I guess it is partly true since google can improve my wallet which will affect all other parts of my life. I wonder if they can give me spirtual fullfilment.... Note I did refer to google as my "Gods" in a recent e-mail to my boss.
Oh, don't worry that page is ranking pretty well on its own now.
Do people actaully use this feature after they have tried it once?
Sometimes, when I'm really, really bored and just staring aimlessly at the screen, I'll type in an obscure pair of words (wood toast, fat jacket) and hit the I'm Feeling Lucky button.
Yes, it's true that it is only the first listing of the SERPs, but it saves a click.
Occasionally, you find some interesting stuff.
This is, in my opinion, also a new step in the direction of creating a Google portal to compete with Yahoo.
I hope not, but the only way google could ever compete with Yahoo at being a protal would be if they did email as well. That is the only reason I ever go to yahoo.
"Shameless Self-Promotion"....stolen from a Hooters' marketing concept.
Nothing new or original about the whole thing, just adding proven "catch prases" to a simple concept.
Next they will have a bookmark option called "I'll Be Back"
A toolbar smilely face called "Make My Day"
The "Google Search" button will be renamed "Engage #1"
and an option to search Inktomi results called "Hasta la vista baby"....may be that will go to AltaVista on second thoughts:)
The one big concept they added to web searching is "KISS"...the basic simplicity of the home page must be their biggest single achievement....now why can't the other SE's and portals pick up on such a simple point?
