The Google Experiment - What's New from Google.

Quote for the day:

“To do more for the world than the world does for you - that is success."
Henry Ford
(1863 – 1947)

What's New from Google?

So what has Google done for us lately? Here’s a look at a few recent innovations:

1. Search by Number - Specific numbers can be entered right into Google's search box for quick access to certain kinds of information. Track a package. Get flight status updates. Look up an area code. Research a patent. Check an auto’s VIN. Just type a number into Google.

2. Numrange Search - Want to set a price range for your DVD player search? Or only look at digital cameras with certain resolutions? Google's Numrange search enables you to pull up relevant results that fall between any two numbers you choose.

3. Google Image Search - Google's Image Search offers more than 880 million images indexed and available for viewing. Whether you’re searching for a picture of a platypus or a graphic of Grant’s tomb, you’ll find it by clicking the "Images" link above the Google search box or by going directly to the Google Image Search home page.

4. Google Toolbar - Put a Google search box right in your browser and you can search from anywhere on the web. Our free Google Toolbar not only keeps Google right where you want it, it also:

5. Froogle - If you’re shopping for something online, start at Froogle. Search millions of products from stores across the web and sort them by price. And just as with Google, your results are totally unbiased since merchants don't pay to be included.

You’ll find Froogle "product search" listings at the top of your results page when you use Google. Or go directly to Froogle by clicking the "Froogle" link on the Google home page.

For example, if you’re looking for information about DVD players between $250 and $350, use Numrange search by specifying the prices and putting two periods between them, as shown below.

DVD player $250...350 3.6 megapixels digital camera 1950...1960 Willie Mays

6. Google Adsense - Google AdSense is a fast and easy way for website publishers of all sizes to display relevant Google ads on their website's content pages and earn money. Because the ads are related to what your visitors are looking for on your site - or matched to the characteristics and interests of the visitors your content attracts - you'll finally have a way to both monetize and enhance your content pages.

It's also a way for website publishers to provide Google web and site search to their visitors, and to earn money by displaying Google ads on the search results pages.

7. Google Labs

  • Google Web Alerts - Automatically emails you when there's new information on the web about a topic of interest to you. Try Google Web Alerts
  • Google Personalized Search - Search results tuned to your individual interests. Customize your information by creating a profile and sliding a control bar at the top of the results page. Try Google Personalized Search

8. Google Blog Search - A new beta search service that enables users to search for blogs and posts that match their interests. Based on the same technology that powers Google's web search and is also integrated with Blogger.

There’s lots more - tour around and catch up on the Google Experiment.
