De-personalising Google Searchresults

James e-mailed me that he has created a bookmarklet which you can click on if you’ve done a search, and found out that you’re still logged in. It will then do the same search again with &pws=0 added to the query, giving the “normal” results, as mentioned on SEL. Thanks James! Now someone else: fix…

“Plumbing the web” – duplicate content issues at Google Webmaster Central

The girls and boys over at Google Webmaster Central have been busy on the Google Developer Day. Now that’s all nice, but when I was searching for something on their blog for “nofollow”, I got 4 results: http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2007/02/come-see-us-at-ses-london-and-hear.html http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/atom.xml http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/rss.xml http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default Now as you can see, 3 out of the 4 results here, are feeds……

How to use Google Webmaster Tools

I’m a huge fan of Google Webmaster Tools, and I’ve written a tool for it which seems quite popular, (and might get an update soon). I’ve been noticing that people find my site by searching for the search term “how to use Google Webmaster Tools”, so I thought I’d post a guide of how I…

Domain-info works again

I got some e-mails and even a phone call that my domain-info tool wasn’t working properly. The reason was that the link: command in the Live search API seems to have been disabled, and my code threw out the complete SOAP error… I’ve removed that. For now MSN inlinks will return no results, I’ll probably…

Google Webmaster Tools on steroids

I love Google Webmaster Tools, especially when it started showing external links. This link overview left me and quite a lot of other SEO’s longing for more though, as we all wanted more info on that page. I have now created a Greasemonkey script to show the PageRank of the page linking to you, and…

Technorati Greasemonkey script removed

In response to my previous post about unlimited API queries, I was urged by David Sifry, CEO of Technorati, to contact the Technorati developers and work out a way to get my script working through the API. I then contacted the developer team and got a great fast response from Ian Kallen, and we’ve been…

Technorati Greasemonkey script

Want to see the Technorati rank and the number of inbound links for a page? I wrote a Greasemonkey script that shows you just that, it does that by opening the search page for the current URL on Technorati and finding those values on it. The first implementation I did used a script on my…

Statistics detector part II

A while ago I started writing my Greasemonkey script to detect statistics programs, this script has been evolving since, and now has gotten it’s own page, so check out the Greasemonkey statistics detector. If you find any statistics programs it doesn’t recognize, please do let me know so I can update it. Update: I added…

Free competitor statistics!

Sometimes, while going through results for certain keywords, you will find that some of your competitors use free statistics programs. In a lot of cases, you can access those statistics, which usually contain very valuable data like keywords and referrers. Sometimes people will hide the usually obliged buttons for these scripts, but you can find…

Have a Mint Greasemonkey script

This script has been replaced by a new version, which now has it’s own page.  I recently (as in, yesterday) bought a Mint license for this site, and am now very enthusiastic about it. Now i’ve always been using Google Analytics, and since i’m very interested to know what kind of stats package other people…
