Google -blog Tool
An interesting use of the Google API to see how blogs affect Google's search results:

You'll need your own Google API key, which can be gotten for free.

I notice the maker has the same probems I had when I first started playing with parsing Google's API results: sometimes Google just doesn't provide a title for entries, most notably on non-HTML pages, this leads to weird display problems.

I have put up my version of a simple search google page that fixes this when using nusoap (a free PHP class for parsing SOAP):
Basically it uses a small check to see if the title is empty or not. If the title is empty we just promote the url as the title.
