Google Numbered Search Results

Description

Google Numbered Search Results is a Greasemonkey script that numbers the search results pages on the Google search engine.

There are other scripts out there which do the same thing, but none of them work with the new AJAX powered search results being introduced by Google. This script does – well actually it doesn’t, it just forces the old search to be used, but the user won’t notice any problem, it will just work for them.

Current version: 1.1 (18 May 2010)
Download: from Userscripts.org
License: Dual licensed under the MIT and GPL licenses

Credits

The Google Numbered Search Results script uses jQuery created by John Resig (embedded in the script). Thanks to John and the jQuery team.

I’d like to announce the release of KeywordLuv, my new WordPress plugin, but RT from Untwisted Vortex beat me to it, announcing it several days ago. I need to be quicker with this sort of thing! I don’t mind, as KeywordLuv was partially inspired by RT’s post on building backlinks via DoFollow blogs.

KeywordLuv helps you reward your commentators by separating their name from their keywords in the link to their site. This gives them improved anchor text, which can help their site rank higher in the search engine results.
