    Nice Job! Only suggestion I have is to make the background transparent.

  2. Tiby312 says:

    Oh yeah, and maybe there should be an option for it only to check the base domain? So like, if you are watching a youtube video, it’d still show the page rank of youtube even though you’re not on the homepage?

  3. kuber says:

    Domain pagerank and alexa rank are one the way.

  4. Help!!! It say Repuired value ‘name’ is missing or invalid
    How do I solve this problem?

  5. kuber says:

    @Laptop Battery: Can you let me know where and when did you see this message?

  6. kuber says:

    @Laptop Battery: I cannot reproduce this error on my box (Win XP/Vista + Chrome Dev 4.0.249.0). I have not tested it on Linux yet. Neither on Mac. Can you let me know your Chrome edition, version, and your operation system? I will look into this issue.

  7. kuber says:

    @Tiby312 Then how can I tell if the user wants to check out pagerank of the current page or the domain? My plan is, on the toolbar only the rank of the page shows. Click on the icon more info of the domain (e.g. Alexa) shows in popup-window

  8. kuber says:

    @Tiby312 Thanks for the advise on the icon background. I know this one is ugly. Just wanted to put together all pieces as soon as I could and grabed one. I’ll get some help create a better one. I myself aren’t a design guy and know nothing about this transparent thing. :-(

  9. Oh yeah!! I can use lt .wonderful!!!

  10. jihony says:

    Thank you kuber for making this wonderful extensions. I can now switch to chrome entirely from firefox. I also made transparent icon. This is my way to thank the community. You can download it from my dropbox: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2806063/pr.ico

    I dunno how to install it in windows nor mac, because I use Ubuntu 9.10. In ubuntu, you just drop this file to this folder: /home/USERNAME/.config/google-chrome/Default/Extensions/fjjhjbjicmicphngpolmnmipnobfgflj/0.9.3 (change the USERNAME, and random alphabet may vary depends on your machine).

    Surely this step is not necessary after kuber update this extension

  11. Matt Herzog says:

    This is by far the best PR extension for Chrome. I tried a few others and they were buggy or flat out didn’t work.

    Thanks so much!

  12. kuber says:

    @ jihony : thank you very much. I will add this icon to the extension soon.

  13. scott says:

    Great extension. Thank you.

    Any plans to compete or quantcast info?

  14. kuber says:

    Since the official Google Chrome Extension site is open, I have upload the package to the google site to take advantage of the auto-update function of the goole site.
    Please move to the google chrome extension site to check out the future updates.
    The extension page is here: https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/hhgojllinjdfbjknbpfcladgieljgoab

  15. daremon says:

    Thanks for a great extension.

    Why do pageranks sometimes have a D in front? E.g. D3?

  16. Matt Herzog says:

    Anyone else experiencing funky symbols being returned instead of a PR number? Everything was working fine until this evening. What I am getting is a squre<ht.

  17. Bill says:

    Looks like the account that serves the results is having a problem – it shows a “503 Over Quota” error when you hover over the icon. More popular than planned I guess…

  18. buxtree says:

    yes ive met the same thing…hope fixed ….

  19. kuber says:

    There is a bug in version 0.9.4. I have released V1.0.0 and fixed the bug. Please remember to upgrade the extension.
    Plus performance is improved and server hitting is reduced. Now showing PageRank for pages/sites is super fast.

  20. Matt Herzog says:

    I am running v1.0.0 and the past couple of days I have intermittently been seeing “No Page Rank for Local Pages” message for all sites.

    Today it has been that way continuously, for every site I visit.

  21. Great tools for me to check SEO onpage..thanks you shared

  22. hi…thanks for the post..

  23. İlan ver says:
