One thing I hate about building sites targeting multiple locations is checking the serps manually in each region. The thought of manually altering the address bar from google.com to .co.uk or .com.au just irratates me. It is such a mundane task that it should be automated and now thanks to Dave Davis and the fabulous team at Redfly Marketing it has been.
Redfly Marketing have developed a firefox plugin called Google Global. Google Global now allows you to view organic and paid Google search results as they appear in almost any location on Earth.
Some of the Features of Google Global:
View paid and organic search results as they appear in different cities.
View paid and organic search results as they appear in different regions.
Open all results from countries, cities and regions in multiple tabs for easy comparison.
View paid and organic search results from a specific IP address.
View paid and organic search results from any US ZIP code.
View paid and organic search results from different language results pages.
Custom advanced saved searches.
How to use Google Global
The easiest way to use Google Global is to simply do a search for something on Google. When you see you search results page, simply right click anywhere on the search results page, select “Search Google Global” and select what geographic location you would like to see the results from. It is as simple as that.
It’s great to see in these times of high unemployment and redundancies, somebody getting off their ass in Ireland and trying to do something about it. Let me introduce you to www.HalfALoaf.ie .
Halfaloaf.ie aims to provide a forum where those who are unemployed can discuss issues and offer advice to those who are new to the unemployment line. As many of the unemployed struggle to fill the working week, halfaloaf.ie offers these the chance to discuss current issues, seek things to do, obtain information on new business ideas, and barter their services.
There are several areas to visit in the site, including:
- General Forum
- Get out of the house!
- Business Network Ideas Forum (BIN)
- Sell or Swap Shop (SOS)
- Barter for Ireland
Unemployment effects everybody in Ireland with the current rate hovering around 15% and tipped to reach closer to 20% by next year. I personally have family and friends currently unemployed and the prospects out there at the moment are bleak. I encourage anybody in this position to make use of this new service available, head over to www.halfaloaf.ie now!
