    Smile [New Ext] PageRank Display

    GO TO NEMROD.SE FOR THE LATEST INFORMATION!
    This has been updated to version 2.0 and now uses browser actions for compatibility with latest Chrome versions!

    This extension gets the PageRank of the page open in the current tab. If it fails it tries getting the PR of the hostname instead, and if that succeeds it shows the PR followed by the letter h. If neither succeeds (if the site doesn't have a PR or for some reason the extension isn't working as it should) it will show a question mark.

    Possible values are PR:0 to PR:10, PR:0h to PR:10h as well as PR:? if something went wrong. Starting from version 1.5 a hash is generated since Google now seems to block the magic hash that seemed to work for all pages. From the same version onwards the extension also auto-updates.

    Sometimes "PR:ea" will show up, this is because you've been checking the PR so much Google suspects you could be a bot. It should go away eventually.

    Extension information:
    Extension: PageRank Display
    Latest version: v1.8
    Download link: http://nemrod.se/chrome/pagerankdisp...ankdisplay.crx (might have to clear cache)
    Description: Displays the PageRank of the page/host open in the current tab in the toolstrip.
    Browser compatibility: Chrome dev build after version 4.0
    Features:
    • Doesn't use a lot of toolstrip space (4-6 characters max, 6 being very rare).
    • Gets the PR pretty fast.
    • Gets the rank on tab switch as well as tab update (changing page in the current tab).
    • If it can't get the PR of the current page it gets for the hostname and indicates it with an h.
    • Upon clicking on it in the toolstrip you're taken to Google Analytics.

    Screenshots:

    Revision history:
    Version 1.0: Initial "release," was never released though. [09:19, 2009-08-03]
    Version 1.1: It actually works [09:19, 2009-08-03]<br>
    Version 1.2: Cleaned the code up a bit [13:00, 2009-08-03]
    Version 1.3: Put back the span which was part of the clean-up, vertical alignment is important. [13:20, 2009-08-03]
    Version 1.4: It now uses the hostname and thus display a PR even if you're deep within the site hierarchy. [06:18, 2009-08-04]
    Version 1.5: Added auto-update and hashing to make it future-proof. [10:31, 2009-08-04]
    Version 1.6: Added an indicator whether the specific page has got a PR or if it's using the hostname. [14:44, 2009-08-11]
    Version 1.7: Stripping whitespace (else there would be a trailing space if PR<10) [15:38, 2009-08-11]
    Version 1.8: Fixed permissions to use tabs API and changed it to take you to Google Analytics. [18:37, 2009-08-18]

    A really nice extension. Though there are a few extensions for Google Pagerank which have been released such as vasant's and andrew's but your extension is definately the fastest i would say.

    I think you should integrate a few more things such as yahoo links, alexa rank, internal links, external links(nofollow/dofollow), and make sort of a toolbar that would automartically load the info when a page is loaded..

    something like a mini seo toolbar of sorts?

    Glad to hear you like it!

    I was actually planning on making it bigger eventually. Went from top to bottom on your list, googled Yahoo links which yielded no interesting results, went on to Alexa rank and now I'm finished with that extension (until it has to be revised).

    Gotta get back to what I should be coding now though, the rest might come eventually.

    This is very nice, thanks!

    I have a suggestion for your next version: make it support internal URLs.

    For example: if you go to Google, perfect, page rank shows. However, if you make a search it doesn't. So needs to get just the first part of a URL, the host name, doesn't matter where the user is within a site. Can use the location.hostname for that.

    Just a suggestion

    1.4 coming in a sec.

    Can't use location.hostname, I'm using the chrome events to get the URL.
    I solved it with this, think it should work pretty well:
    Code:
    u=u.substring(0, u.search(/[a-z]\/[0-9|a-z|?]*/) + 1);

    Although I might get a job with SEO within a couple of months I still consider myself an amateur. I haven't used any toolbars, really, only various net-based tools. Probably because I've been using Chrome since before I started looking into SEO.
    We're planning on developing most of our tools ourselves within the group, and now that I know that Chrome's got a very nice extension support it's definitely worth making. Who knows, might release our other tools under GPL later on as well, depending on contracts and what the others think

    HI,

    i think there is a small error with the plugin. It is displaying only the homepage pr of the site. If i go to any inner page then also its only showing the homepage pr. Some sort of bug or something?

    Originally I used the exact URL, then Firehalk wrote that and I changed it to use the host (everything before the third /). Which one should I go with?

    It is sometimes useful to know the pr of the exact webpage, not only the hostname. You could make it show the pr of inner pages, and if it can not be fetched, pr of the hostname.

    Yeah I was thinking that too. Try one then the other. Could be confusing though, because you don't know whether it's the actual page or the hostname you're seeing the PR of.
