refering to this post:
<< I've got a link to the "mobile download console" on mine though....

why would i have this??? >>

when you click on the Sign In button (right side on top of the screen) you get a bad request..:
<< Bad Request
Your client has issued a malformed or illegal request. >>

anyone else get this bad request thing?!

David Hetfield [PersonRank 10]

i dont think Google will consider it to a new service..no matter if you have use it or not...

Dan Cousar [PersonRank 2]

14 years ago #

Could it be that you need to view the mobile download console...on a phone? :-P Thats how I interpret a bad "client" request. As a browser is a client to a server such as apache etc.

Also, the "Try Something New" section is there to offer you a service that you currently don't use. I have Alerts under mine too because I don't currently use this service.

I guess you followed links from one of these posts about this service:

ruscoe.net/blog/2006/06/google ...
blogoscoped.com/archive/2006-0 ...

BTW, if anyone finds a service in this new account area that's not already on this list, please let me know:

Google Account Service Names
ruscoe.net/google/google-accou ...

I'm pretty sure that covers most services now. You should be able to sign up for any of theses where there's not an error in the "New" or "Edit" columns.

Interestingly, I use my primary Gmail address for my AdSense account but with a different password (since AdSense was more fussy). I recently asked Google if they could link it to my Gmail account and the said the following:

<< Unfortunately, we aren't able to update your AdSense account to a Google Account at this time. As you may have noticed, please note that your Google Account and AdSense accounts are not linked. We do hope to extend this option to AdSense publishers in the future and will be sure to let you know when it becomes available. >>

So I asked what would happen if I set another AdSense account up using my Gmail account and they replied with this...

<< Thanks for following up with us. It is currently not possible to set up
another AdSense account using your Google Account. If you set up another
account using username[put at-character here]gmail.com as your email login, it still will not
be linked to your Google Account.

Please know that we're currently working hard to link Google AdSense to
your Google Account, but at this time, it isn't possible to do so. We'll
be sure to let you know when this becomes available, at which time you'll
be able to access AdSense through your Google Account. >>

<<Google will consider it to a new service..no matter if you have use it or not>>

I think it's because I've never used it. they're using it as in New to me, rather than a new feature. Google put that catogory there not me :-)

I just visted the login pages of RS2, SSD and Mobile Download Console, and the last two have appeared on my list of services (although RS2 and Alerts havn't) So google is telling me that I use serveces that havn't been released yet!

<<How can Google put links to services that aren't yet live?>>
I was wondering that.
Have some of the google servers gone down? I can't get to Web albums or the accounts page. The accounts page says that I blocked their cookies, I tured the feature all the way off and I still get the same

Yesterday it took me to www.google.com, now it takes me to my account page (the new style one). Does SSD have something to do with the account settings?

Mrrix32 [PersonRank 10]

14 years ago #

As the SSD thing is redirecting to the Google Accounts page could it have something to do with the "authorized websites" feature (that dissapeared)
Did we ever find out what that was?

Not all my services are listed though and e.g. groups is also listed beneath 'try something new' but as I use groups a very long time it isn't that new for me...

The new layout is probably in function of the checkout thing. But i do not see the link right away, anybody does?

I think all it means is that Google Groups is not linked yet to your Google account! Are you using the same password for both ?

Try loging to Groups this way and check back your accounts page:

Sorry – yes, I should've said that you get redirected to www.google.com with a gsessionid querystring parameter appended to the URL, which errors on the first visit but then redirects to www.google.com after the gsessionid has been allocated on the first visit...

NateDawg [PersonRank 10]

Ionut is correct in his thinking. If you go to mobile.google.com/mmconsole/robots.txt you find this

# allow-all
#
# Google Base pages may be crawled by robots for the limited purpose of
# including content from Google Base in publicly available search engines.
# In order to automatically access data for any other purpose please contact
# Google at gb-feedback[put at-character here]google.com

User-agent: *

### END FILE ###

Granted, what the heck is a robots.txt file doing in a subdirectory? (don't ask why I tried this, lets just say weird obsession) But the text file comments clearly indicate that this is some sort of base extension.

One other thing, this is definitely for the mobile domain and not just a redirect trick (ie base.google.com/mobile or mobile.google.com/base). Changing the subdomain to "base" will give you a 404
