Worse than Sidewiki? Quick Scroll

4 replies
I noticed the latest Google Toolbar has added a pop-up called Quick Scroll.

Basically, the pop-up takes you to section of the page that brought up the search results if you click a link. Which could be bypassing ads, opt-ins, etc.

What do you think about it?

    I have not seen it yet. Before I go and download the new toolbar and give Google more of my information I am curious to see what others have to say.

    Does it take you to a "section of the page" or does it limit the display to just that content?

    I like the section of the page idea... but if its filtering out all other content (ie, no ability to scroll up or down) then that would be bad.

    I have not seen it yet myself because I don't like Google Toolbar and don't use it in my browsers... hence the question.

    Josh,

    It appears on the right corner of the screen, displaying part of the text and clicking it takes you to that specific section. Much like using the "find on page."

    I have mixed feelings about it.

    People might only look at that part and leave instead of seeing other content. I know I visit a site and often start exploring because something catches my eye.

    No to mention people wont see the ads as often.

    It doesn't work on every page right now.

      From the perspective of a search user... I use the Find search on pages often once I land on the page from a search result. This sounds like a useful tool... if it were to only display the relevant content and block the rest... that would bother me from the perspective of a publisher.
