WordPress 3.0.3 udpate! And a Google Pagerank API?!?

Looks like WordPress is getting a little update happy again. Last time this happened they updated every 3 days for like 2 weeks… At least this time the updates are only 7 days apart. :/ Anyways, both my released plugins have no problem with the new update and are working just fine.

Now on to the good stuff! A nice fairy tale. :)

Once upon a time, in a land not very far away, Google had a PageRank API where you could query their system for a website’s Google PageRank. Well, for reasons I’m not going to go into details with, they removed that API. This left a lot of people sad and not knowing what to do. :(

The villagers of the new “Google PageRank Non-API Land” searched high and low for a solution. But all they could find were old code snippets of non-existent API calls and other non-working scripts. As time went by all they were able to find were barbaric work arounds and other medieval ways of finding out a websites Google Pagerank but no real solution.

Then came the Web Ninja’s Google PageRank API. Now the villagers can make simple API calls all day and easily find out a site’s Google PageRank. And they lived happy ever after. :)

Anyways, I hope you enjoyed the story and you can check out the new API at http://josh-fowler.com/?page_id=163.
