Staggernation is a website by Kevin Shay that features three Google search applications, which no longer function because Google retired the SOAP Search API on which the tools were based in August 2009.[1] The new AJAX APIs used by Google "do not provide the same functionality," so the creator couldn't create new code for the search applications.[1]

The search applications based on the Google API included:[2]

  • Google API Proximity Search (GAPS)- Find pages where two words or phrases appear within a certain distance from each other.
  • Google API Relation Browsing Outliner (GARBO) - Search for pages related to, or linking to, a given page, and then for pages linking to those pages, and so on, in an expandable hierarchical outline.
  • Google API Web Search by Host (GAWSH) - Browse a set of Google search results broken down by host machine.
