Google Custom Search Engine : Create your own Google Powered Search Engine

Google today released a new service for webmasters and bloggers where you can create your own search engine powered by Google, called Google Co-opGoogle Custom Search Engine : Create your own Google Powered Search Engine.

But personally I feel the only thing that makes this different from adsense custom search is that adsense custom search does not allow more than four websites to search, but on the other side in adsense we can choose atleast the colors. Have a look at a custom search engine I have made.

Features :

Build and customize your own search engine

  • Specify the sites you want to include in searches.
  • Place a search box and search results on your website.
  • Customize the look and feel to match your website.
  • Invite your community to contribute to the search engine.
  • Make money from relevant ads in your search results.

Flapjax : Functional Reactive Javascript

Flapjax is a new programming language designed around the demands of modern, client-based Web applications. Its principal features include Templating syntax, Event-driven, reactive evaluation, Access-control for shared data, Convenient data sharing and Interfaces to external Web services.

Flapjax is easy to learn: its syntax is precisely that of JavaScript. Furthermore, because Flapjax is built entirely atop JavaScript, it runs on traditional Web browsers without the need for plug-ins or other downloads. In fact, you can (in exchange for a little more code) use Flapjax purely as a library in JavaScript rather than use the compiler from Flapjax to JavaScript, so you can integrate it into your existing programs.

Six months after the last Google pagerank update, google has started to update its datacenters. The best part is www.sr-ultimate.com is Pagerank 6 now :) .

I have collected a few tools to check pagerank in various ways, various data centers. Please do note that different tools listed use different datacenters so the result may vary and I suggest you check once in google toolbar . It is normal that it shows different pagerank in different datacenters, In the past it’s usually lasted a few days and then they all gave out the same PR.
