Google now helps this with the Search-Based Keyword Tool.

Google Search Based Keyword Tool

The example simply demonstrates, if webresourcesdepot.com was to be advertised with Google Adwords & web design was a keyword to be used:

  • the tool checks the website to analyze the content
  • suggests other related keywords

Definitely a time saver for Google Adwords users. Continue reading

Chrome extensions draw near, but advanced HTML 5 features recede

A new developer version of Chrome takes some significant strides to adding the top-requested feature–the ability to accommodate extensions that customize what Google’s browser can do–but programmers also pushed back support for a collection of significant advanced Web features.

Google Chrome 2.0.180.0 emerged Tuesday night for people willing to try the developer preview version. The new version installs some of the plumbing necessary to support the feature, according to the release notes.

A lightweight sample Chrome extension shows how many Gmail messages you have.

“The extensions posse would like to point out that as of today’s dev channel release, extensions are starting to be a bit more useful. We can now put little bits of UI (user interface) in the chrome of Chrome, and some of the APIs (application programming interfaces) are starting to come together,” said Google programmer Aaron Boodman in a mailing list post Tuesday. “There is still quite a ways to go, but if you’re interested in building extensions for Chrome, this might be a good time to start taking a look.”

Google Earth now includes undersea view

AN FRANCISCO, Feb. 3 (UPI) — Google, the California-based search engine giant, has added an undersea view of the world to Google Earth.

The new feature, announced Monday at the California Academy of Science in San Francisco, includes maps of the ocean bottom, photographs and videos of underwater flora and fauna and shipwreck models.

Sylvia Earle, a former chief scientist at the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, once joked that Google Earth should be called “Google Dirt,” because it omitted two-thirds of the planet’s surface. At the launch, she said that Google now provides “a fantastic new rendition of the earth.” Continue reading

Google fakes out Hotmail for Chrome support

Google has added a patch to its latest beta and stable versions of Chrome to make the browser work better with Microsoft’s Hotmail site.

With the patch, Chrome tells Microsoft’s site it’s actually Apple’s Safari browser, sidestepping a compatibility issue that had caused problems using the site.

“While the Hotmail team works on a proper fix, we’re deploying a workaround that changes the user agent string that Google Chrome sends when requesting URLs that end with mail.live.com,” Chrome Product Manager Mark Larson said in a blog announcement. It also fixes a problem sending mail from Yahoo Mail, he said.

The patch is in Chrome 1.0.154.46, which also fixes a severe security problem.

Matt Cutts, Google’s chief Web spam fighter and a high-profile company blogger, was less delicate about the Hotmail issue. “Normally you think of Web pages being faster to update than client-side software downloads. In this case though, Chrome updates near-weekly, much faster than Hotmail did. Another illustration that velocity and speed of iteration matter,” he said in an online comment about the matter.
