Google search with Twitter integration

Search business — Tags: — facesaerchteam @ 11:45 pm

First of all:i coded this for me, not for you! Because i deem it useful. Basically i came to realize that in my job of checking and optimizing websites and their brand visibility i came to use twitter search more and more often. So saving a few seconds per search i integrated Twitter in Google.

This script was recommended by Matt Cutts! Cool!

So now after you install

you get

twitter onebox result

yeah, look, there is a new unobtrusive twitter link in the blue bar (next to Groups in this case). Click it and …ta da…

twitter in google

the last ten tweets about the topic (via twitter search)
Oh yeah, of course the twitter link only shows up if there was something found via twitter.

Why is it important: After thinking about Twitter and using it for a while i realize it will become an underlying communication layer of coming real time web (and the mobile web). Google hasn’t realized it yet to it’s full extend. Information in twitter is faster available because it does not need to be indexed by Google to get found, it has it’s own search - It’s Google independent and has a speed advantage. On the other side Google is my One-Stop-Shop for information. So either i would have to leave my beloved one-stop-shop to get this valueable information or i fix it. Thx to Greasmonkey it’s only about an hour worth of work to fix a website. Have fun.

Oh yeah, the script is in an CC do whatever you want LGPL license.

the Google Twitter Onebox result

There is a newer version of the script - check it out!

can you spot the little difference on this Google search result page?

tc-google-twitter

yeah, there is a little, nice “Twitter” link in the blue bar, next to the fat “Web“, a click on it jumps the search result page down to:

tc-google-twitter-see the twitter results

yeah, the top 10 tweets (via the twitter search).

basically i have been using twitter a lot in the last time - both active as a tweet-tweeter and passive for research. Googles coverage of twitter can be seen as quite pore (seems instead of organizing the worlds information they seem to be more busy to force half baked wiki functions down our throat) so this

firefox greasemonkey script “google twitter”

fixes this.

hope you like it, oh and if you don’t have greasemonkey installed, you can get it here. if you want to follow me on twitter just check out my feed.

i just don’t like the way that you think

the perfect song for jobinterviews and problem solving meetings. problems in project managment don’t exit a prioir, people create them. most of the time a change in perspective helps.


and i know it’s cliche, but it works: call them “challenges”, “ventures” or just “things we fix now” but not the big bad P word.

one of the best blog posts ever written http://www.tomski.com/archive/new_archive/000063.html

  1. Build web products that meet audience needs: anticipate needs not yet fully articulated by audiences, then meet them with products that set new standards. (nicked from Google)
  2. The very best websites do one thing really, really well: do less, but execute perfectly. (again, nicked from Google, with a tip of the hat to Jason Fried)
  3. Do not attempt to do everything yourselves: link to other high-quality sites instead. Your users will thank you. Use other people’s content and tools to enhance your site, and vice versa.
  4. Fall forward, fast: make many small bets, iterate wildly, back successes, kill failures, fast.
  5. Treat the entire web as a creative canvas: don’t restrict your creativity to your own site.
  6. The web is a conversation. Join in: Adopt a relaxed, conversational tone. Admit your mistakes.
  7. Any website is only as good as its worst page: Ensure best practice editorial processes are adopted and adhered to.
  8. Make sure all your content can be linked to, forever.
  9. Remember your granny won’t ever use “Second Life”: She may come online soon, with very different needs from early-adopters.
  10. Maximise routes to content: Develop as many aggregations of content about people, places, topics, channels, networks & time as possible. Optimise your site to rank high in Google.
  11. Consistent design and navigation needn’t mean one-size-fits-all: Users should always know they’re on one of your websites, even if they all look very different. Most importantly of all, they know they won’t ever get lost.
  12. Accessibility is not an optional extra: Sites designed that way from the ground up work better for all users
  13. Let people paste your content on the walls of their virtual homes: Encourage users to take nuggets of content away with them, with links back to your site
  14. Link to discussions on the web, don’t host them: Only host web-based discussions where there is a clear rationale
  15. Personalisation should be unobtrusive, elegant and transparent: After all, it’s your users’ data. Best respect it.

Turn Google SearchWiki on / off

Search business — Tags: — facesaerchteam @ 11:05 pm

Last Thursday Google launched a new feature called SearchWiki and well, it sucked. in my opinion. They turned a perfect clear-purpose product into a noisy icon-dessert which you can’t easily opt out .

I look at Google like 10.000 times a day, i don’t have time for noise, on the other hand, as an SEO manager I’m part of the GoogleEconomy, so i can’t just logout of the Google products or disable this feature completely.

So basically i coded a tiny

firefox greasemonkey enhancement called
searchwiki on/off

which lets you turn Google SearchWiki on if you need it (with this enhancement searchwiki is opt-in, means searchwiki is disabled by default.)

click-to-turn-search-wiki-on

If you ever need the Google SearchWiki feature, i can just turn searchwiki on.

But if you have enough, the just turn SearchWiki off again.

disable-searchwiki

And yes, the on/off status is remembered. So basically now you have a choice. This is how a user centric product is supposed to be from the beginning.

Installation SearchWiki on/off:

1. First you need the great Greasemonkey Firefox add-on.

2. Then just install the Search Wiki On/Off User Script with one-click.

3. Test it

Note: Googles SearchWiki behaviour is currently …. strange, al least here in austria it shows up on .com for some queries sometimes, then it is gone again. The “Wiki” on/off link that comes with this extension shows up all the time at google.com and google.co.uk.
