I don't know exactly whom should I send the request to, so I'm posting it here.
Most of posts that I write have a bunch of links. Usually I write the post first, then I add the links. Adding links usually implies:
- Running a search on google
- Copying the url of the page I want to link
- Creating the link in the post
Something like 95% of the times, the link I'm looking for is the first match in the google's results page. Type any person name and his/her weblog are going to be the first hit. Type any product or company name, and the product or company sites are going to be the first hit.
Now... guess what I want?
Yes, I want to write in my post something like "link:Dave Winer" and have it replaced in my post with Dave Winer in my post.
Isn't it what Google's API are for? Let me know as soon as the feature is available. Thanks.
PS: less than 20 minutes later I have the macro running, thans to Matt Mower (this link has been generated with the new "googlami" macro).
PPS: 25 minutes later I have TWO macros, thanks to Mikel Maron.
What did I tell you about the blogosphere? This is just great!
