04 Feb 12 Chrome Market Share Down Following PageRank Penalty


IE increases as Chrome drops

This is some unexpected news. Chrome’s market share has actually fallen? That’s the case according to new data from Net Applications.

The firm attributes the loss in Chrome market share to the penalty Google placed on it after the the whole paid post controversy last month. Google reduced the PageRank of the Chrome home page after it was found to be in violation of the company’s own webmaster guidelines, and as a result no longer appears on the first page in a variety of popular browser related searches.

It’s a bit hard to fathom that this could have such a major impact, but it’s at least one thing to take into consideration. It will be interesting to see how the market share looks next month, and after the Chrome page gets its PageRank back. Google said the PR would be lowered for a period of at least 60 days.

Also in January, Internet Explorer gained 1.1% and Firefox dropped 1%.

WordPress announced the launch of a new WordPress.com Chrome extension which gives you access to a number of WordPress.com features and notifications while you’re away from WordPress.com. This should prove to be pretty handy for a lot of bloggers.

Users will get notifications anytime they get a new follower or like.

When you have the extension installed, it will display a follow button whenever you’re on a site with RSS feeds, so you can easily follow it from your WordPress.com account. This includes not only WordPress sites, but blogs on Blogger, Tumblr, etc.

There’s a “press this” button, which lets you quickly post content to your blog without having to actually go to it. This gives you a box that looks like this:

It will even let you post an excerpt of text with a link by highlighting what you want to post before you click the button. Like I said: handy.
