See Websites Through Google’s Eyes


Google Eyes by Blue Fountain Media is a plugin for Google's Chrome web browser that allows users to quickly pull up the Google Cached Text-Only version of nearly any website. This is an excellent way to view a website through Google's eyes.

One cool use is to quickly and easily check the raw structure and layout of a page and see how well it's header tags are optimized.

Once installed, a "T" (as in "Text-Only") icon will appear on the right-hand side of your address bar. To activate Google Eyes, visit the site you want to look up and click the "T" button.


Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I get a "We're Sorry..." page from Google when I try to use Google Eyes?

Google Eyes has to interact with Google's server to load the Text Only version of the page. When Google's system detects too much activity from your computer or network, it might appear that the use is automated. Try waiting a while and then using Google Eyes again. To prevent the "We're sorry" page from coming up in the future, try using Google Eyes less frequently.

Can I suggest a new feature?

Yes! The Blue Fountain Media team is always open to new ideas and ways to improve our plugins. If you have any suggestions or feature requests, please leave them in the comments.
