MENLO PARK, California | Thu Sep 26, 2013 6:25pm EDT

(Reuters) – Google Inc has overhauled its search algorithm, the foundation of the Internet‘s dominant search engine, to better cope with the longer, more complex queries it has been getting from Web users.

Amit Singhal, senior vice president of search, told reporters on Thursday that the company launched its latest “Hummingbird” algorithm about a month ago and that it currently affects 90 percent of worldwide searches via Google.

Google is trying to keep pace with the evolution of Internet usage. As search queries get more complicated, traditional “Boolean” or keyword-based systems begin deteriorating because of the need to match concepts and meanings in addition to words.

“Hummingbird” is the company’s effort to match the meaning of queries with that of documents on the Internet, said Singhal from the Menlo Park garage where Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin conceived their now-ubiquitous search engine. Sigue leyendo

Exitosas empresas nacieron en el garaje


Algunas de las firmas más importantes del mundo se originaron en el fondo de un hogar y lograron expandirse a niveles insospechados. Conozca cuáles son
Por
 

Comenzaron en un garaje y crecieron hasta cruzar las fonteras de sus países.

De hecho, se convirtieron en grandes negocios que actualmente son inmensas fábricas donde se define parte de la economía global.

En la actualidad las utilidades de esas compañías, según Eurobrands, superan los u$s344 mil millones, cifra que sacaría de apuros a cientos de empresas en crisis.

Según informa Dinero.com, ellas son:

Comenzó en el garaje de la casa de Steve Jobs a mediados de los años 70s.

El padre de Steve, Paul Jobs, tuvo que sacar sus herramientas para que su hijo pudiera trabajar con Stephen Wozniak en el diseño de los primeros aparatos de Apple.

Actualmente es la empresa más valiosa del mundo y cuesta u$s130 mil millones.

Google patents smart watch with flip-up display that could reveal everyday objects’ secrets


By  | engadget.com

Google just announced its earnings for Q1 of 2012 and the company did not disappoint. It raked in $10.65 billion, a full 24 percent higher than last year for the same time period and a hefty improvement over last quarter. Of that rather sizable chunk of cash, $10.2 billion came from advertising revenues — $7.3 billion of that placed on Google’s own properties.
GAAP net income for the quarter was $2.89 billion, more than twice that of Q1 2011, which brings its total war chest to $49.3 billion in cash on hand.

Perhaps the biggest news for investors, though, is the 2-for-1 stock split, which is a perfect accompaniment for the skyrocketing price. It’s worth noting however, that this new stock is a new class of non-voting shares.

Para Fortune, Steve Jobs es “El empresario más grande de nuestro tiempo” – FayerWayer


Via Scoop.ithuman being in – perfección

En un conteo realizado por la revista Fortune, Steve Jobs, el fallecido co-fundador de Apple fue declarado como “El empresario más grande de nuestro tiempo”. Esta designación se debió a que Jobs tuvo ese instinto para crear productos que hicieron la diferencia frente a sus competidores, ya que no era algo intestinal, sino como él decía “conectar los puntos”.
El conteo se basó en el impacto social y económico que cambió la visión, inspiración, innovación y el desempeño de las empresas a través del tiempo, como lo fue en su tiempo NeXT y posteriormente, la adquisición de Pixar. Aunque se le acusó por ser abusivo o mezquino, para Fortune, Steve Jobs es el empresario por excelencia de nuestra generación por ser “visionario, inspirador, brillante y vivo”.

Esta es la lista completa de Fortune… Sigue leyendo

Si Pinterest es la red de las mujeres, Google+ es la de los hombres


http://www.marketingdirecto.com
-.-

Con todo el interés está centrado en hablar sobre cómo el uso de Pinterest está enfocado hacia las mujeres, Google+ se posiciona, aparentemente, como una red dominada por los hombres, ya que más de dos tercios de sus usuarios son chicos. ¿Buenas noticias para los anunciantes que tengan una estrategia centrada en los hombres? Según un reciente estudio deNetworkWorld, llevado a cabo porWebsite-Monitoring.com, la red social de Google es el anti-Facebook, red en la que el 55% de los usuarios de EEUU son mujeres.

Otros datos interesantes que cabe destacar del estudio son:
- Los estudiantes son los usuarios más abundantes en Google+ por ocupación, ya que representan un 20% del total. Otras profesiones populares para Google+ incluyen ingenieros de software (2,65%), consultores (1,99%) y managers (1,72%).
- EEUU e India son los dos países con más usuarios de Google+, ya que en EEUU hay un 31,5% mientras que en India hay un 13,7%. Sigue leyendo

A Proposal For Social Network Détente


by
http://searchengineland.com/a-proposal-for-social-network-detente-109120

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

google-facebook-twitter-missilesFor the past two weeks, I feel like I’ve been witnessing some type of Cuban Missile Crisis going on between Google, Twitter and Facebook. I’d like to suggest some ways that social-nuclear war might be averted.

Beyond Blame, Believing In Cooperation

Let’s set aside blame, because blame isn’t going to move anything forward.

Let’s also assume that all the players can be taken to some degree at their word, that they do indeed want to work together in some ways.

What does everyone want?

The Wants & A Game Changer

Google has wanted its own social graph for some time. By social graph, I mean a way for it to see how people are interconnected, which could potentially improve Google’s search results. Better ways to target ads, new “sticky” content where people spend huge amounts of time are other things it wants, but let’s focus on the search aspects.

Twitter has wanted, well, clearly money along with other non-disclosed things for what is mistakenly assumed to be its most valuable asset, its “firehose” of tweets. What’s really Twitter’s most valuable asset is actually its sharing activity, but I’ll get back to that.

Facebook has wanted, well, I don’t know — maybe to be the best social network out there. Don’t laugh. If Google once had a laser-like focus on being the best search engine out there, Facebook can have the same focus on social. That’s a vision that Facebook probably doesn’t want ruined by Google encroaching on its territory. A vision that, of course, makes Facebook plenty of money by tapping into social actions.

We also now have something new that both Facebook and Twitter say they want — to be better represented in Google’s search results. It’s not as if they haven’t been there. But releasing today’s Don’t Be Evil bookmarklet — which alters the Google’s Search Plus Your World service — was a game changer in these Cold War years between the search and social superpowers.

Is Too Much Plus a Minus for Google?


On Tuesday, Google announced something called Search, plus Your World (SPYW). It marked a startling transformation of the company’s flagship product, Google Search, into an amplifier of social content. Google’s critics — as well as some folks generally well-intentioned towards Google — have complained that the social content it amplifies is primarily Google’s own product, Google+.

They have a point. With SPYW, the search experience deeply becomes intertwined with Google’s social networking product. You see it in the search box, where the Google+ identity becomes the way to identify a person whose name is in a query. You see it in the search results, where Google+ content is overwhelmingly displayed compared to other social material from Google’s competitors. You see it in a “People and Pages” list — suggestions for connections on Google+ — that appears in the same column as Google’s ads.

In short, they say there’s too much Plus and not enough of Our World, which has oodles of content on other social networks. Sigue leyendo

Happy Google Fools’ Day: Timeline Of Pranks | Online Media Gazette


April Fools’ Day is a holiday celebrated in various countries on 1st of April every year. The day is marked by the commission of hoaxes and other practical jokes of varying sophistication on friends, family members, and neighbours. On top of that, the ‘victims’ may be sent to run a fool’s errand, in which it aims to embarrass the gullible.

Google, a multinational public cloud computing and Internet search technologies corporation shows their mischievous side during this time. In fact, they have a tradition of perpetrating hoaxes to the public. Let’s take a look at those that are caught my interest from the year 2000 to the more recent ones. What are your favourites?

2000

Google announced a new search technology called “MentalPlex” that supposedly reads user’s minds to determine what the user wanted to search for; simplifying search queries.

2000

2002

Google uncovers the algorithm behind its PageRank systems; the use of PigeonRank. The technology relies heavily on the superior trainability of the domestic pigeon and its unique capacity to recognize objects regardless of spatial orientation.

20012004

They announced that they were looking to hire for their research centre on the moon called the Google Copernicus Centre. On top of that, Google announced that they came out with a new operating system dubbed the Luna/X.

20042005

Google announced that they will start producing a beverage that would optimize one’s use of the Google search engine by increasing the drinker’s intelligence with the introduction of Google Gulp.

20052006

In 2006, Google claims that “Dating is a search problem. Solve it with Google Romance.” It tricks people into believing that from that year onwards they’ll be offering a “Soulmate Search” to send users on a “Contextual Date.”

20062007

At about 10:00 PM Pacific Time on 30 March 2007, Google changed the login page for Gmail to announce a new service called Gmail Paper. The service offered to allow users of Google’s free webmail service to add e-mails to a “Paper Archive”, which Google would print and mail via traditional post.

2007

2008

In 2008, Google announces a joint project with the Virgin Group to establish a permanent human settlement on Mars called Project Virgle. The announcement includes videos of Richard Branson as well as Larry Page and Sergey Brin on YouTube, talking about the project.

20082009

Google reports that on March 31, 2009 they’ll be releasing a new “Cognitive Autoheuristic Distributed-Intelligence Entity” or CADIE for short. This new technology is implemented into Google Mobile’s “Brain Search”. The instructions are to “Put phone to forehead for brain indexing” and “Think your query”. When you click “Try Now”, a page loads with “Brain indexing” status. When indexing is complete, a button comes up with “search me”. However, after clicking this button, the user is directed to fake search results.

20092010

Google wants to bridge the gap between animals and humans with the introduction of Animal Translator BETA. They placed a link on their main page and when users click on it, a new page opens up showing the app for Android phones for the translator.
