Andy Beard Toolbar Buttons

Andy Beard has made further good use of the list and OPML file of the search marketing blogs we’ve been maintaining in the form of a Google Toolbar button.¬† He’s launched a toolbar buttons blog with the TopRank button as the first!
The button works with Google Toolbar for IE or the beta version Google Toolbar for Firefox and is a handy alternative to the other search engines that have been created based on the list.

  1. I should point out the search engine I am pointing to is Alister Cameron’s, and if you click the button with no search terms, it takes you directly to the list of sites here at the Toprank blog.

    I could have created my own CSE however…

    I spent months trying to persuade the Google Adsense team to allow me to create toolbar buttons pointing to various Adsense for Search pages on a site, and was rejected, even though an end user can create their own button easily.

    When CSE was launched, I emailed Google asking if I can create a CSE and distribute buttons for it, no reply from Google.

    However in this situation I am just a user and fan of Alister’s search engine, I created a button for my personal use, decided to share it and Alister, Toprank and Megite get the benefit.

    Whan will be available for G-toolbar for Firefox?
    Thank you!
