As a full time web developer and learning the game of SEO, I would like to see Google ToolBar come over to the Mac side. (Mac OS X that is.)
Any Mac heads out there agree?
If so - I motion to add a little pressure on Google and let them know what we need, and need it sooner than later.
I made it easy for you... just e-mail them here: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Did a lot of digging around in OS X applications and I came up with 2 developers who played with the Google idea.
1.) GoogleX [homepage.mac.com]
2.) Shadow Google [homepage.mac.com]
Now I e-mailed both of them and encouraged them to take their development one step further in perhaps creating a X version of Google ToolBar. Perhaps you all could do the same eh? I mean if Google can't move on this, then someone should I think!?
Heck thinking about it, if I knew application development I would have a version to sell to Google, then I could retire he he :)
Okay just some thoughts and info.
Here is the reply I got from one of the developers.
These guys are great!
If Google is not careful this company will release toolbar before them! :) I got this e-mail back from the company who makes Shadow Google.
That is I do not think they will ever do it. Which is my only annoyance (and it is pretty big, let me tell you) with Google.
Maybe a possible project for one of you whizzes out there ;)
You'll all know that the Google Directory lists PR of sites in each category.
Another thing I think should be available is PR listing in the 'cached' version of a page.. this way it would be completely OS independent and just a standard html fix like the directory results.. And considering they show PR in the directory results.. why don't they show it in the regular search results?
At the very least it would be nice to have a tool like PR:www.website.com.. could be an exact PR too then, not one of those rounded down ones!
C'mon google.. so many options.. not enough answers for the non-windows flock!
Maybe if we all start bugging Google enough together, we'll get a real response? ;) Who knows...
I've been all over this site trying to figure out how to do this on a Mac. I've found what looks like the magic code but it seems to be just impossible to find the ch value for a particular domain without using a PC. Even the posts in the Mac Webmaster forum about how to sniff it out, require a PC program.
Has anyone come up with a way to get this elusive number without buying a new bloody computer?
