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 (documentroot.com) is listed in the first couple pages of both Yahoo and Google for the search term "homemade deodorant". A dubious distinction at best.
