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.

      Hi Sunderqaz,

      It only adds a number before each item in the list Google returns. You still have to click the link for the item (which will be right next to the number).

      Hi Catherine,

      I haven’t updated it iun a long time and I think Google has changed their results page. I’ll have a look at this over the next week or so.

      Cheers,
      Stephen

      Hi Murz,

      Sorry, but the script doesn’t work any more anyway – Google has changed too much for it to work. I’m not even sure if you can get any more than 10 results per page anyway.

      Cheers,
      Stephen
