  • More control of Googlebot’s crawl rate
  • December 7, 2008 – A greater control over the crawl rate of Googlebot on your website – her are all the details. In my experience, crawl rates seem to plateau out at a level that is optimal to the rate of change o content on your website – I have seen this many times also recently. Once website architecture is sorted out spidering appears to be less aggressive – what’s your experience ??
  • Google Friend Connect, Publicly Available
  • December 7, 2008 – Google Friend Connect, the service that lets you add social features to a site without writing any code, is now available to everyone. Users don’t need to setup a special account for a new site: they can log in using an existing account from Google, Yahoo, AOL or using an OpenID. They can also import a profile and the list of friends from a social network, but the only options are Google Talk, orkut and LinkedIn.
  • Gmail Gadget for Google Desktop
  • December 7, 2008 – Google Desktop’s integration with Gmail has always been slow and unreliable: Google Desktop could fetch and index the messages from a Gmail account, but this could take days. The new Gmail gadget for Google Desktop doesn’t add your messages to the index, but it’s a small version of Gmail’s interface that sits in the sidebar. You can read your mail, send replies, star messages, perform searches directly from the gadget.
