    Hello

    As you probably know, the chrome browser constantly send to google servers a lot of data about your browsing (pages visited, links clicked, website bookmarked ...) that google can most probably use in her algorithm.

    what I suggest you is to test whether the chrome bookmarks is taken into consideration in the Google algorithm.

    With your help it will be very easy to do:

    We will use the keyword "pandaranol" which has been used in 2011 in a french seo competition.

    What you have to do is to visit the website alexaloola.fr with your chrome browser and to add it to your bookmarks (ctrl+d).

    The website is actualy in the 10th position, lets see if after your bookmarks it will move to higher position.

    VERY IMPORTANT : As everybody knows, the click through rate in serps is actualy the most important Ranking Factor. so please dont click on any website in the google search results, it will distort our test.

    with Wireshark, i found that whenever i bookmark a website, chrome sends a https request to an google ip. you can test it if you want

    If i was google, that will be a very strong metric to use on my algo, a website that is bookmarked by thousands of people is a website that deserves to be well positioned, you dont think so ?

    Bookmarked.... Do keep the thread updated with any changes you see in its ranking. And yes g00gle is looking into bookmarks, guess the only question remains as to whether it uses it in its algorithm.

    I wonder how is the situation with Mozilla why dont you try to sniff some packages. Mozilla is sponsored by G after all.

    BTW I'll join in your experiment.

    care to share some more details on that?

    I just spent a few minutes looking at the http requests when you bookmark a page and I cant see anything that would back up your claims.

    Thats a https request not http, add tcp.port == 443 to the Wireshark filter to see that

    Mozzila dosn't send anything to google servers, i've tested

    Chrome send some https encrypted requests everytime you :

    - click on a link
    - bookmark a page
    - visit a website by tapping address in navigation bar
    - visit a bookmarked page or website
