Many Google services come with an api (application programming interface) that allows web developers to create new web services.

Google Maps is probably the most popular example but there are probably a dozen or more other services that also support APIs. The Google Maps api is used by many web developers to create new web services that include real time flight tracking or racing games.

All of these web applications are independent of each other which makes them difficult to track as there is no central register available for them that you can use to look up whats is new and hot.

Goollery, which is a combination of the words Google and Gallery, is a collection of Google related projects on the web. Or, as the developers put it: "Goollery is an online gallery dedicated to collect, archive and showcase the most creative, fun and innovative Google-related projects from around the world."


The Google projects that are displayed on the website are divided into various categories including Google Search, Google Earth or Youtube. The second tier navigation menu contains the Google related projects that have been added to the selected category while the majority of screen space has been reserved for a picture (or pictures) and short description of the Google related service.

A project link is available on every page that will load the web service in a new web browser tab or window. Users and web developers can submit new Google related projects which will be reviewed by the webmasters and added to the service if they meet the quality guidelines.

Goollery offers links to interesting Google related projects. It would be nice if the developer's would add a date for each Google project that they have added to the website so that the age of the project becomes clearer to the visitor.

Update: The Goollery website is no longer available. We have removed the link to it as a consequence. There does not seem to be a comparable service available on the Internet at the time of writing.
