Even something as self-centred as egosurfing. Yes, you can now "Know Your Place", as egosurf.org's tagline so neatly puts it, at just the click of a button. No more typing your name into Google or Yahoo!, or even MSN, del.icio.us or Technorati.
Fill in your name, some appropriate URLs, and you can quickly see just what the web thinks (or doesn't think) of you.
Ever the happy guinea pig, I tried it out.
Apparently my egopoints (whatever meaningless number they are) are:
|google.com||1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th||7899|
|yahoo.com||1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 6th, 8th, and 9th||8298|
|msn.com||1st, 2nd, and 3rd||2692|
|del.icio.us||2nd, 3rd, and 6th||2362|
|technorati.com||7th, 8th, 10th, 11th, 12th, 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th, and 20th||7599|
A nifty tool, and quite fun watching it pop up the results - the whole thing is a fairly decent piece of AJAX code.
