SEO Analyzer v 1.2 – Adding support for Bing along with Google and Yahoo

Posted 25 CommentsPosted in Open Source
On May 28, 2009 Microsoft announced Bing which has now replaced Live search. And within 2 week of it's release, Bing seems to have leapfrog Yahoo search in U.S. With Bing coming up as a strong contender to Google and Yahoo search engines, I have added support for Bing in SEO Analyzer v 1.2. This will enable you to analyze a site's ranking for a particular keyword on Bing search engine, along with Yahoo and Google search engines.

Posted 6 CommentsPosted in Web Development
Last week while working on SEO Analyzer v 1.1 desktop application, I faced a challenge of getting google page rank for a particular site using javascript. I am not sure if someone has already done this before, but I thought of sharing this javascript code for all adobe air and web developers out there. googlepagerank.js var googlepagerank = { hexdec: function(hex_string) { hex_string = (hex_string+'').replace(/[^a-f0-9]/gi, ''); return parseInt(hex_string, 16); }, count: function( mixed_var, mode ) { var key, cnt = 0; if( mode == 'COUNT_RECURSIVE' ) mode = 1; if( mode != 1 ) mode = 0; for (key in...

Warning for Google Chrome Users : Chrome’s ‘Save As’ Flaw Could Give Attackers Control

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Tech Giants
Bach Khoa Internetwork Security, a security-research firm in Vietnam, claims to be the first to discover a critical vulnerability in Google's Chrome browser. "This is the first critical Chrome vulnerability permitting [a] hacker to perform a remote code-execution attack and take complete control of the affected system," the firm wrote in its Sept. 5 advisory. While four Chrome vulnerabilities were discovered, Bach Khoa said the "Save As" flaw is the only one that can allow an attacker to launch remote attacks from a victim's PC. Other vulnerabilities just crash the browser. The vulnerability is caused by a boundary error when...

Cuil : New search engine from former Googlers.

Posted 8 CommentsPosted in Tech Giants
Just came across this search engine http://www.cuil.com , which is supposedly from former Googlers or I must say rebellious googler. Cuil Inc (which is pronounced as Cool) claims that it can index faster and more cheaper, a far larger portion of the web than google. The would-be Google rival says its service goes beyond prevailing search techniques that focus on Web links and audience traffic patterns and instead analyzes the context of each page and the concepts behind each user search request. Personally from my experience it doesn't give better search results for proper noun. For example querying my name...

Posted 12 CommentsPosted in Web Development
After developing the draggable div application the other day, I was itched to implement the whole iGoogle portal. Probably the drive came when a few of you asked me "These draggable divs are just like iGoogle", so I thought why not to give a shot at it. Here is what I was able to come up with while sitting idle at the office. I have shown 3 tabs for making it look more of a realistic demo. However only the news tab is operational as of now. Feel free to drag and drop any of the news box to any...

What if all the world's information would be available and easy to find? What if all the news, all books, all texts, photographs and videos would be collected in one place, and made available, always and everywhere? This is the goal of Google, and the company seems to be realising its core mission at an amazing speed: through its popular search engine, through Google Earth, with which users can find any kind of information based on geography, and through Google Print, a project in which Google digitizes complete libraries. Google is divulging ever more information, in the process hiring the...
