Add WOT for Scroogle

Post by xcc1 » Sat May 30, 2009 11:24 am

I'm another user requesting that WOT be used with the Scroogle search as well. Scroogle is very useful, but it would be much more safe with WOT.
If anyone has any information on the subject, I'd be very interested to hear it.

It certainly is not as well known as google, but Scroogle returns quick clean results and offers some interesting information as well.

user.js work around

Post by xcc1 » Wed Dec 30, 2009 9:40 pm

As I said here (http://www.mywot.com/en/forum/5132-scroogle), I found a way that seems to work. Add this to user.js in the Firefox profile folder:

user_pref("weboftrust.search.scroogle.display2", "2Search Results - Scroogle Scraper");
user_pref("weboftrust.search.scroogle.url2", "http(s)?\\:\\/\\/(ssl)?(www)?\.scroogle\\.org\\/cgi-bin\\/nbbw(ssl)?.cgi.*");
user_pref("weboftrust.search.scroogle.ign2", "http(s)?\\:\\/\\/([\\w\\-]+\\.)*scroogle\\.org\\/.*");
user_pref("weboftrust.search.scroogle.style2", "a ~ [ATTR=\"NAME\"] { background: url(IMAGE) right no-repeat; padding-right: 20px; margin-right: 5px; }");
user_pref("weboftrust.search.scroogle.app2", 0);
user_pref("weboftrust.search.scroogle.display", "Search Results - Scroogle Scraper");
user_pref("weboftrust.search.scroogle.url", "http(s)?\\:\\/\\/www\.scroogle\\.org\\/cgi-bin\\/nbbw.cgi.*");
user_pref("weboftrust.search.scroogle.ign", "http(s)?\\:\\/\\/([\\w\\-]+\\.)*scroogle\\.org\\/.*");
user_pref("weboftrust.search.scroogle.style", "a ~ [ATTR=\"NAME\"] { background: url(IMAGE) right no-repeat; padding-right: 20px; margin-right: 5px; }");
user_pref("weboftrust.search.scroogle.app", 0);

The WOT Wiki has this:
http://www.mywot.com/wiki/Additional_se ... le_Scraper

your rules seem to be more specific, you might want to consider revising those on the Wiki?

Bump!

Scroogles half decent. ( A lot cooler w/ Grease Monkey: http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/23529 )
I just wanted to point out that WOT still does not support Scroogle and it's pretty lame having to do work arounds. Bumping for 2010.

Why the indication is still green after .......

Post by begrouz » Thu Mar 18, 2010 1:31 am

Hello,
I am just curious and would want to know what happens when we tell about a no reliable website, i did 10 days ago and it seems nothing changed since. I am a bit disapointed, and not sure i shall continue to use WOT. The link about that website show a very very bad feed back of the customers who never received their orders or any money back, it seems clear that site is a Fake....... What about mywot if they don't correct their indications? I don't really understand the purpose, if someone can help me to understand.. Thanks

you are off topic

Post by c۞g » Thu Mar 18, 2010 4:26 am

Read the rules, you are off-topic here.

To report a site or request a site review you should start a new thread in the Comments on websites forum.
For the post title, name the site with no http or www keep it simple, like this: example.com is not reliable
If you say, "unreliable site" or "can you rate my site" - they seem to get overlooked, just too many of those topics around...

As for "about WOT" and how it works... click the Support link for the FAQ, or check out www.mywot.com/wiki/ for more information.

It would appear that Scroogle has now shut down after repeated DDoS attacks. See hxxp://josephevers.blogspot.co.uk/2012/02/scroogle-shuts-down-for-good.htmlcgi-bin/nbbwssl.cgi

They did. You can use StartPage.com as an alternative.

Re: "...use StartPage..."

StartPage is listed on hpHosts as being involved in the distribution of malware and browser exploits. GoogleSSL seems OK.
