Google-based Send to and User tools

One of the things that made Google unique among search engines was that they analyzed the links between web pages and used that link analysis in their calculation of a page's ranking (PageRank). From Google's Advanced Search screen they provide the ability to perform queries upon the links between sites.

Although there are 3 Send to tools and 2 User tools defined below, there are really just three different Google-based queries being performed. But since 2 of them could be used as either a Send to tool or a User tool, and since the syntax is slightly different I thought I'd define all 5 Send to/User tools for clarity and good OOBE for you.

The 3 queries are:

  1. Display the pages that link to this feed item
  2. Display the pages that link to this web site
  3. Display the pages that are related to this web site

Send to tools

Links to feed item:

Note: Since Google's index isn't updated as fast as you can receive new feed items in Awasu, this query may not always yield accurate results right away, but if it's been a day or more since the feed item has been published you should see results if the item as proved popular with the web community.

Language translation Send to tool

Google has announced that the Google Translate API, upon which this Awasu extension is based, has been officially
deprecated as of May 26, 2011. "...the number of requests you may make per day will be limited and the API will be shut
off completely on December 1, 2011."

http://code.google.com/apis/language/translate/overview.html

We're in the process of seeking alternative translation functionality to provide Awasu users with the same
or similar translation functionality.

Using Google's Language translation service from a Send to tool you can translate a feed item into your native language. Here is a list of supported languages

You may need to modify the URL below if your native langauge is not English, just replace the 'en' in the UrlTemplate line below with the two-character language code of your native language. The two-character language codes are available from Google's API documentation, and of course change the Name from "Translate to English" to "Translate to your language".

Language translation User tool

Using Google's Language translation service from a User tool you can translate selected text into your native language. Here is a list of supported languages

You may need to modify the URL below if your native langauge is not English, just replace the 'en' in the URL below with the two-character language code of your native language. The two-character language codes are available from Google's supported language list, and of course change the Name from "Translate Selected Text to English" to "Translate Selected Text to your language".
