Locate a Page on Google

LocatePage is tool that allows you to search google and yahoo's search results. Hmm... wait a second, isn't that the same as searching them directly? No. You can search for say "books" and then search *within the first 1000 results* for a subquery.

One of the primary uses, clearly intended by the author, is for finding out the popularity of a given site for a given search term. I think Submit-It used to do this, but they no longer exist, apparently. (Microsoft ran them into the ground, yet another perfectly good internet company ruined by an acquisition.)

For example this site ( is listed in the first couple pages of both Yahoo and Google for the search term "homemade deodorant". A dubious distinction at best.
