New Offerings From Google

Posted on 5.10.2006

See, on the Web, there's development and then there is hyper-development. Yesterday, Google announced four new products that will give Google-ites a better sense of what the search behemoth is doing to improve their regular web search and how it will all become reality. A brief synopsis is below. If you are interested in hearing what was said at Google's press event, check out the webcast.

From the Adsense Blog:

- Google Co-op is a way for users to help us improve search. It lets people and organizations label web pages and create specialized links related to their unique expertise. Whether it's information about a hobby, a profession, or an unusual interest, everyone can contribute to making Google search more relevant and useful for the entire community.

- Google Desktop 4 gives you another way to improve search, by personalizing your desktop. New "Google Gadgets" deliver an array of information--ranging from games and media players to weather updates and news--straight to your desktop.

- Google Trends builds on the idea behind the Google Zeitgeist, allowing you to sort through several years of Google search queries from around the world to get a general idea of everything from user preferences on ice-cream flavors to the relative popularity of politicians in their respective cities or countries.

- Google Notebook (launching next week) is a personal browser tool that lets you clip text, images, and links from the pages you're searching, save clippings to an online notebook, and then share notebooks with others.
