Just when I was wondering what Google’s been doing to tie it’s products together for the uninitiated, they launch the ‘What do you love?’ service.
I could hyperlink the URL, but it’s super easy to memorize, just wdyl.com
(as in What Do You Love)
*UPDATE: If this does not work for you, try it again tomorrow. I’m getting reports that the host name is broken for external DNS? Personally I’m using Google DNS which is 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 for the primary/secondary DNS addresses.
This is tying together the following services:
- Google Translate
- Google Trends
- Google Books
- Google SketchUp
- Google YouTube
- Google ImageSearch
- Google Alerts
- Google Maps
- Google PatentSearch
- Google Moderator
- Google Chrome
- Google Gmail
- Google Voice
- Google Groups
- Google Calendar
- Google Earth
- Google News
- Google Blogger
- Google Mobile
- And more products as they are released..
What do *I* love? Google! (It’s not a very interesting result when you put ‘Google’ into the WDYL tool, oddly enough?)
Just typing in random words can be fun, interesting, and even educational. I have to admit that as much of a ‘fanboi’ as I am with Google, there’s a few services I haven’t explored enough and this one site bridges that gap for me. From an SEO stand-point, there’s really no harm in trying your keywords in this new tool to see what comes from it. Worst case you may find some new avenues to look into for your business and on-line rankings?
Oh and for something just a bit different, on the topic of new stuff from Google, OK Go and Philbus have whipped up a treat. For users of Chromium browsers (including Google’s Chrome (yes they are slightly different)) this latest ‘Chrome Experiment’ can be a lot of fun, if a bit excessive for the purpose.
I should mention it’s showing off Chromium’s multi-threading, so if you have a slow machine or don’t have multiple cores in your CPU, you may want to skip this?
