Search Engine Optimization (SEO) | Common Craft - 0 views

  •  
    Another good Common Craft video about search engine optimization -- says that "Google and Bing are the librarians of the search." Interesting, and a total coincidence, that this video also uses the notion of a "recipe" to explain how to make your website more searchable -- the same analogy I used to explain an algorithm.

The Search Engine That Has Indexed All Tweets in History -- Now a Possible Acquisition Target? - 0 views

  •  
    I came across this as I was looking for history of search engines and its pretty crazy that the site Topsy has been able to save every single tweet since twitter launched! that's 300 billion tweets!!! and you can search them all as it is open to the public. I hadn't heard about Topsy but it seems like they are gaining a good reputation and going against big search engines like Yahoo and Bing.

11 Essential Algorithms That Make The Internet Work - 0 views

  •  
    For the math-phobic out there, don't let the word scare you. An "algorithm" is nothing more than a set of instructions, just like a recipe or how-to book.And the Internet relies on many, many algorithms in order to function properly. When you type Internet terms into Google, it follows a very complex algorithm to determine which results to show you.

Google Has Gone 'Dark': The Search Giant Just Ended Its Free Data And People Are Freaking Out - 0 views

  •  
    AP Late this month, Google went "dark" in terms of providing publishers with free information on which words led people searching in Google to click on their sites. The move came as Google seeks to reassure users following the NSA/PRISM domestic surveillance scandal.
  •  
    Wow, I hadn't even heard about that, Emily. Terrific story. That's a bummer, though -- I use Google Analytics on some of my sites, though I probably should make more use of it, and it was always interesting to see what keywords people were using to get to my site. Sometimes the keywords were weird.

  •  
    This article shows the traffic before and after the whole NSA scandal to Google and DuckDuckGo. It gives visual representation to prove that while traffic did go up on DuckDuckGo, it in no way came close to competing with Google.

The Best Search Engine You're Probably Not Using - 0 views

  •  
    Do you like privacy? Do you shun surveillance and eschew spam? Do you like simplicity? If you answered yes to any of those questions, you'll love DuckDuckGo. DuckDuckGo is the brainchild of everyday American Gabriel Weinberg, and until news of the National Security Agency's widespread spying program broke last month, it was a baby brainchild.
