In this thesis, a scheme is presented that harnesses the power of Google to locate previously visited webpages. Instead of bookmarking webpages by their URL, this process is based on addressing pages by their Google URL, which is a short sequence of words that, when queried in Google, locates the desired webpage as the top search result. Good GoogleURLs are memorable and easily communicable, even by speech, and avoid the portability and scalability problems of traditional bookmarks. The GoogleURL Generator-a tool to automatically generate GoogleURLs-is presented, and is complemented with a Google Reordering tool that automatically reorders Google search results based on user browsing history. The goal of this thesis is to employ GoogleURLs and Google Reordering to make Google's "I'm Feeling Lucky" button more lucky.
