Overload Search - advanced Google search chrome extension
This is a small update mainly for SEO and performance. By removing unnecessary font files we were able to reduce the package size dramatically down to 266kb with further reductions possible in future.
We've reached an amazing milestone of 200 weekly users for the Overload Search chrome extension!
After noticing a trend of France being the main non english user base I decided to translate to French. This gained the extension traction in France after multiple bloggers wrote articles about the extension that were shared on Twitter. This saw a huge increase in installs from both France and Canada and saw the extension reach 200 users!
There is a new version in the works updates to come 🙃 any feedback and feature requests are welcome!
Following user feedback the following changes have been made to improve the user experience and a big fix for the blog and discussion search types. Discussion has been deprecated by Google and has been removed. A fix for blogs is included in this release!
An article published in French was shared on Twitter that resulted in our weekly users increasing to 165!! This is great feedback for the French translation that we recently added in version 1.2
This is a major achievement and I'm proud so many people are finding this useful!
It's taken a while but I finally reached a goal of 70 weekly users. Changing the description for chrome web store SEO and promotional images really helped, along with updating regularly for the google algorithm :)
Looking at new features in the coming weeks, more versions incoming!
Targeting 100 users next!
Version 1.1 of Overload Search has been released!
In this version the following features have been added :)
New Promotional images have been approved by Google and are now published to the Chrome Web store!
Overload Search was created to quickly access google advanced search operators, i wanted to hide or show only operators i'm currently interested in so I developed this chrome extension!
