Google Counter

Frequent Search Engine Users, Google Is Watching and Counting: Does anybody have this?

“Think of it as an odometer for a search engine. The Web search service Google has quietly started placing a counter on its home page for a small number of its most frequent users.

Most Google users do not have it, but a select few now have a no-frills counter that with each search clicks higher, noting ‘You have done 479 searches,’ or whatever the actual number.”

It’s the new mark of the elite. Who needs Botox when you get the Google counter on your pages?
