Google Adding Web 2.0 Features

by Jon Davis 25. November 2008 16:18

A week or so ago, Google snuck in interesting new features to the search results. You can now comment on any hit, as well as manually give hits boost rankings or removing them.

Who'da thunk, that people could contribute to the accuracy of Google's search hits?! Honestly, how long did it take for this idea to come about, it's so simple and yet where has it been all this time?! :)



Command-Line Google Updated

by Jon Davis 26. May 2007 10:04

I toyed around with using my command-line Google interface and noticed a couple serious flaws. I fired up the source code and cleaned it up a bit.

  • Still very lightweight and simple
  • You can now open a URL that was listed in a previous page
  • If you change your query term, the page number correctly resets itself to Page 1

Google Search for the Command Line

by Jon Davis 16. December 2006 15:04

Nothing spectacular here, but occasionally I feel the urge to do a quick Google search from the command line and I decided to build one. Google apparently stopped supporting their SOAP API, but it's still not shut down yet, so I threw together a command line Google search.
