After reading Dave’s piece on the “Google-It!” macro, I had an idea for a cool Google service. How about a web service that allowed someone to submit a URL and some search terms, and get the rank of that URL based on those terms? For example:

http://www.google.com/rank?q=Weblog&url=http://www.scripting.com

Would return a number, it’s value being the current rank of that URL based on a Google search for Weblog. It would be a boon for those obsessed with or merely curious about their rank of the Google ladder. The tie-in to Radio and Manila is that you could write a macro that called this and put your rank in an appropriately captioned text. “Hey, I’m the #() ranked site on Google for Weblogging!”

Anybody out there have Google’s ear?
