Google now does the Quickest Weather Forecast on the Web

Google now does the Quickest Weather Forecast on the Web

Written by: on Sunday, March 6th, 2005
Posted to: Google,SMS,Weather

13 comments, add yours!

In the ongoing attempt to make nearly everything available through the Google search field, they’ve just added the ability to request the weather through it. Yeah, I know, there are plenty of places to go and get the weather on the web. But, this is the quickest.

To get current conditions and a forecast just type in the word “weather” followed by either a zip code or a city. If not a unique city name, follow if with a comma and state abbreviation. For now, it displays only United States weather.

For example, to see the weather in Honolulu, just key in “weather honolulu”. You’ll get the following display:

 

Screen shot 

Notice just below the weather forecast is the first search result. It’s wunderground.com because that is the service that is providing the weather to Google. Having it always the first result makes getting further details on the weather report easy since you can simply click that link to get a full page of weather for the requested area from wunderground.com

But wait, there’s more! You can also use Google SMS to send a text message to the U.S. five digit shortcode 46645 (GOOGL on most mobile phones) followed by your meteorological query.

    Hi,

    It is not working for me, is it because I am from france? Or is it discontinued?

    Regards

  2. Markon 14 Mar 2005 at 7:09 am

    Bastien:

    Please be more specific and maybe I can help.

  3. Mark (2?)on 14 Mar 2005 at 9:56 am

    I believe the Google SMS Weather website says it only works for US.

  4. Jarsenon 17 Mar 2005 at 2:41 pm

    Hahaha, wow. Now this is a cool little feature. I’ve read a modest amount about Google Hacks, tricks, etc., but I have never seen this one. Good work Mark!

  5. Joshon 19 Mar 2005 at 8:41 am

    Google SMS only works in the US (read the FAQs)

    But it does say they’re “working hard to make it available when and wherever you’re on the go”, so there’s hope yet for me in the UK and Bastien in France.

  6. Lorion 21 Mar 2005 at 12:57 pm

    Woo hoo!! Good work finding this, Mark!

  7. Robinon 22 Mar 2005 at 6:07 pm

    This is cool. I was most impressed because the link below the weather was to the weather station in Camarillo. I live in Thousand Oaks, and on weather.com it defaults to Van Nuys, which is really nothing like TO in terms of weather. Anyway, so it works good! Thanks Mark.

  8. Harryon 23 Mar 2005 at 5:58 pm

    Great, but would be even greater if it had a switch for celsius (hate these non SI units)

  9. Meisamon 01 Apr 2005 at 12:47 pm

    Hi
    it doesn’t work for our SMS Service.
    because of our SMS Service ,doesn’t work properly for it’s own Duty(Sending Message),So what do you think?
    Iran’s SMS Service dosen’t Support!!!!!
    but Thanks!!!!

  10. Jimon 13 Apr 2005 at 3:25 pm

    It works fine. You will find however, that you need to include the state as well for most cities, as follows: weather kirkland, WA

    Otherwise, you just get a bunch of links and no forcast.

  11. thinkpieceon 05 Apr 2007 at 11:01 am

    Please tell me — why so few international, multiple location options? I’m in NYC and I like to check out the weather in my favorite places around the world, as well as my own.

    Your options don’t come close to MSN’s Foreca weather gadget. I’m almost tempted not to switch to Google as my homepage for this reason …

  12. Jarnoon 16 Apr 2008 at 4:38 am

    Forecast for Finland from Google?

  13. nageshon 28 Aug 2008 at 6:13 am

    Hi,

Google Reader: Sharing With Notes!

Google Reader: Sharing With Notes!

Written by: on Wednesday, May 7th, 2008
Posted to: Google,Reader,SMS,Twitter

5 comments, add yours!

Sharing your links just got better: A note system has been added!

readerpage.JPG

Google reader allows you to share the links you find with friends, and now they’ve added the ability to send a quick note with your shared post. Using the new “Notes” function under “Your Stuff“, you have the ability to either send a quick note to your friends, or add a note to any links you share.

Now you can can finally say, “Hey, I found this and thought you might like it!”

share notes with google reader

The other function you will see under the “Notes” is that there is a bookmarklet that you can drag to your browser’s toolbar. Now you can share ANY story/link that you happen to find online with a note and optional ‘snippet’, just by pressing it. When using this bookmarklet, you can turn off the “Add to shared items” checkbox to just add the story to your own notes list.
stages.JPG
This new feature seems like it has plenty of room to grow, like, how about a function similar to Twitter, where you can send a note to a single friend? Or, how about the ability to have tags, search, organization, and the ability to delete notes?

Google, you’ve got something good started here, so if you bring this one home, it could become the new social pipeline!

    What may be just a UI bug, you can “unshare” a note, but you can’t delete it once it is created. Other than that, it looks like an awesome addition!

  2. Brian Wallaceon 08 May 2008 at 7:13 pm

    @David:

    this seems to be working now. Can you try it out and let us know if it works for you as well?

  3. Davidon 08 May 2008 at 9:59 pm

    @Brian
    Yes, they seem to have fixed it, and have added a delete button… a very important addition!

  4. Brian Wallaceon 09 May 2008 at 2:00 am

    @David:
    Great, glad it is working for you. Google aims to please! :)

  5. Sour Grapeson 10 May 2008 at 8:17 pm

    You can already share a Google Reader item with one person by the email link. That of course allows you to add all the comments you like.

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment
    is added I get three e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Many thanks!

Google Launches Knowledge Graph, a Significant Change in SERPs

Written by: on Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012
Posted to: Google

Add a comment…

Google has been drawing a lot of flak in the past few months for cluttering its search result pages (SERPs) with results from Google+ and also for not being able to provide quality results on the first page of the results which is where the best results should be. Google was never silent and it kept rolling out all kinds of updates and algorithm changes.

If you remember, sometime back I wrote an article on Google’s upcoming search changes which hinted that Google would be providing more information and direct answers on its SERPs. Google has now announced that change officially and it’s called Knowledge Graph.

knowledge-graph1

First things first, the change currently applies to search queries that are about things, people and places, which in Google’s words could be “landmarks, celebrities, cities, sports teams, buildings, geographical features, movies, celestial objects, works of art and more.” As you see in the screenshot above, Google will try to figure out the exact person, thing or place you want to know about and displays more information about that on its sidebar.

Google will also display summaries on the sidebar that instantly inform about important facts. The suggestions of similar searches are included in the summaries too.

knowledge-graph2

knowledge-graph3

Overall, as the name ‘Knowledge Graph’ suggests, the change intends to present a deeper insight into a search query, other than just presenting the links to other websites which is what Google had been doing all these years. So Google has finally made its move to a ‘knowledge engine’ from a search engine, and it’ll be interesting to see where it goes from here. What do you say?

Google Docs Gets a New Research Tool

If you are creating a report or composing a document on a particular topic using Google Docs, chances are that you switch to Google search often in the search of material like images, blog posts and quotes. Google Docs has now introduced a new Research tool that’ll aid you in fetching these material without the need to leave Google Docs’ interface.

The Research Tool appears in the form of a sidebar whenever you open a new document in Google Docs. It can also be accessed via the Tool menu in the nav bar.

google-docs-research-tool1

There’s a Google search bar right on top that gives you 3 search options:

  • Everything
  • Images
  • Quotes

google-docs-research-tool2

When you hover the mouse pointer over any search result, it shows 3 options: Preview, Insert Link and Cite, each of these being self-explanatory.

google-docs-research-tool3

The following screenshot shows how it quickly pulls up the web page in a concise format when you click on the preview link.

google-docs-research-tool4

Overall, a helpful tool for Google Docs users.

Google Checkout Coupons

Google Checkout Coupons

Bookmark Button

cut coupon for google checkoutMy wife and I recently got some great deals using coupons we found online to save when using Google Checkout. This list is really a work in progress for us, but I figured you might like to snag a discount as well so I thought I’d start listing those I’ve used here.

$20 Coupon Code for TheNerds

TheNerds is one of my favorite sites for computer supplies. I recently needed two new flat panels for my office and got them from here without the coupon! To save the $20 you need to click-through my link and shop as normal, then use coupon code: AFFGOO20 when it is asked for during checkout.

Save $5 at Shoebuy.com

This is the first coupon I used for Google Checkout and I actually used it three times and sent it around to family! It has since expired 9/09 but Shoebuy has sales all the time so I wouldn’t be surprised to see this one come back soon. Hat tip to Beth and her Shoebuy coupons site for tipping me off to this deal at the perfect time!

$10 Plumbers Surplus Coupon

As much as I shop online I’ve yet to buy plumbing supplies, but I know people do so here’s a promotion you might like. Enter coupon code: PSCJAFFW14GBP during checkout to get a $10 discount on your order.

How-to Redeem These Coupons

Google Checkout allows their merchants to set up their coupons a variety of ways so it is important to read the details of each one you choose to use since they are not all the same. The most common way they work is either automatically or via a code.

For the automatic coupons all you need to do is click through the link provided above and shop. The discount will be automatically applied and you’ll see it reflected in your shopping cart.

For those deals that use a coupon code you need to click through the link provided above and shop. But, to complete the deal and get the savings you have to enter the coupon code into your cart when it asks for it.

Gmail Gets Better Google+ Notifications

Gmail Gets Better Google+ Notifications

Written by: on Tuesday, May 15th, 2012
Posted to: Google

Add a comment…

Google+, like all other social networks, has a system of sending notification emails depending on the kinds of activity notifications you’ve opted to receive. By default you get all kinds of notifications and you may customize them in your Google+ settings. Now, Gmail is a Google product too and you know how Google has been trying to integrate other Google products with Google+ in the recent past.

So, Google took another step in that direction few days ago by changing the way you receive Google+ notifications in Gmail thereby making it dynamic and integrating it deeply with Gmail.

gmail-googleplus1

After this change is rolled out to your Gmail account, you can comment on a Google+ update from right inside your Gmail. That means you do not need to click through the link and go to Google+ to participate in the discussion. All the other comments on that status also appear in real-time in your Gmail. So the discussion can happen across Gmail and Google+ without the need to switch between those services.

If you are on mobile, you can now just reply to a Google+ update and it’ll appear as a comment on your Google+ stream, as you can see in the screenshot below. And this is possible from these mail clients apart from Gmail.

gmail-googleplus2

A lot of tech commentary on this topic has centered around blaming Google for allowing Google+ to infiltrate people’s Gmail accounts. While I am not a fan of the way Google has integrated Google+ in its search results, I think here it’d be unfair to blame Google for this particular change because it is only modifying the way Google+ notifications are received in Gmail and one can always disable the notifications if he doesn’t want them.

Can Facebook Beat Google? (Infographic)

Can Facebook Beat Google? (Infographic)

Now that the long awaited Facebook IPO is behind us, we can take some time to dig a bit into a comparison where Facebook actually makes its money: advertising. While still a growing company trying to find its footing, Facebook has a tremendous reach and marketers are able to slice through demographic data to find very specific tribes of people’s interests.

Consider, though, that Google’s been at this game for quite some time now. Google’s ad formats, re-targeting, and display network are much more mature products than Facebook’s attempts to date.

So who will be the winner? Google for now but ultimately still a bit early to declare a winner. This infographic, courtesy of Wordstream, provides a good analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of both Internet superpowers.

24 Hours In The Google Economy (Infographic)

Add a comment…

There is no doubt that Google is the undisputed leader when it comes to search advertising. In fact, Google generated a tremendous $10.8 billion in advertising revenues in Q3 2012, despite their “disappointing” earnings announcement last Friday.

So what does this mean for Google and it’s advertisers? Well, according to Larry Kim, who conducted the analysis which you will see in the infographic below, the trends we’re seeing in the Google economy create a win-win for both AdWords advertisers and Google. He also says that a larger available inventory of impressions, combined with lower CPC, means that PPC advertisers are now literally able to get more customers for less money.

This infographic, courtesy of Wordstream, provides a detailed look at the Google economy.
