Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Google have already been experimenting with adding pictures to the SERPs, but you'll see a lot more in searchmash.
I wonder if this could be the forerunner of a new froogle/base interface?
SearchMash lets you search the internet in new ways. It is constantly evolving as we come up with ideas and figure out what works and what doesn't. Check out our features page from time to time to see what has changed, and also to tell us which ones are useful to you. Please bear with us when the site is unavailable as we are limiting its use.
I especially like the feature that allows me to move my personal site into the #1 posistion.
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.
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.
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. ;-)
Sorry to goubarev if this is what you meant already.
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?
I see a future for further third-world work-at-home opportunities pushing Google results around on the screen...
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.
