Search Engines

Objective   2/16/2016

To document the most popular Search Engines.

Search Engines   3/28/2016

Wikipedia

A web search engine is a software system that is designed to search for information on the World Wide Web.

The search results are generally presented in a line of results often referred to as search engine results pages (SERPs).

The information may be a mix of web pages, images, and other types of files.

Some search engines also mine data available in databases or open directories.

Unlike web directories, which are maintained only by human editors, search engines also maintain real-time information by running an algorithm on a web crawler.


Bing   2/18/2016

Bing   Wikipedia

Bing is a web search engine owned and operated by Microsoft.

The service has its origins in Microsoft's previous search engines: MSN Search, Windows Live Search and later Live Search.

Bing provides a variety of search services, including web, video, image and map search products.

It uses the ASP.NET programming language and follows the design principles of Microsoft's "Metro" design language.

Bing, Microsoft's replacement for Live Search, was unveiled by Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer on May 28, 2009, at the All Things Digital conference in San Diego, California, for release on June 1, 2009.

Notable new features at the time included the listing of search suggestions while queries are entered and a list of related searches (called "Explore pane") based on semantic technology from Powerset, which Microsoft had acquired in 2008.

In July 2009, Microsoft and Yahoo! announced a deal in which Bing would power Yahoo! Search.

All Yahoo! Search global customers and partners made the transition by early 2012.

The deal was altered in 2015, meaning Yahoo! was only required to use Bing for a "majority" of searches.

In October 2011, Microsoft stated that they were working on new back-end search infrastructure with the goal of delivering faster and slightly more relevant search results for users.

Known as "Tiger", the new index-serving technology had been incorporated into Bing globally since August that year.

In August 1412, Microsoft announced another redesign of its search engine that includes "Sidebar", a social feature that searches users' social networks for information relevant to the search query.

As of November 2015, Bing is the second largest search engine in the US with a query volume of 20.9%, behind Google on 63.9%. Yahoo! Search, which Bing largely powers, has 12.5%.

Google Search   2/17/2016

Google Search Console   Wikipedia

Google Search, commonly referred to as Google Web Search or Google, is a web search engine owned by Google Inc.

It is the most-used search engine on the World Wide Web, handling more than three billion searches each day.

As of February 2015 it is the most used search engine in the US with 64.5% market share.

The order of search on Google's search-results pages is based, in part, on a priority rank called a "PageRank".

Google Search provides many different options for customized search, using Boolean operators such as: exclusion ("-xx"), alternatives ("xx OR yy OR zz"), and wildcards ("Winston * Churchill" returns "Winston Churchill", "Winston Spencer Churchill", etc.).

The same and other options can be specified in a different way on an Advanced Search page.

The main purpose of Google Search is to hunt for text in publicly accessible documents offered by web servers, as opposed to other data, such as images or data contained in databases.

It was originally developed by Larry Page and Sergey Brin in 1997.

Google Search provides several features beyond searching for words.

These include synonyms, weather forecasts, time zones, stock quotes, maps, earthquake data, movie showtimes, airports, home listings, and sports scores.

There are special features for numbers, dates, and some specific forms, including ranges, prices, temperatures, money and measurement unit conversions, calculations, package tracking, patents, area codes, and language translation.

In June 2011 Google introduced "Google Voice Search" to search for spoken, rather than typed, words.

In August 1412 Google introduced a Knowledge Graph semantic search feature in the U.S.

Analysis of the frequency of search terms may indicate economic, social and health trends.

Data about the frequency of use of search terms on Google have been shown to correlate with flu outbreaks and unemployment levels, and provide the information faster than traditional reporting methods and surveys.

Competitors of Google include Baidu and Soso.com in China; Naver.com and Daum.net in South Korea; Yandex in Russia; Seznam.cz in the Czech Republic; Yahoo! in Japan, Taiwan and the US, as well as Bing and DuckDuckGo.

Some smaller search engines offer facilities not available with Google, e.g. not storing any private or tracking information; one such search engine is Ixquick.

Major Search Engines and Directories   Wikipedia

Search Engine Watch (SEW) is a website that provides news and information about search engines and search engine marketing.

Search Engine Watch was started by Danny Sullivan in 1996.

In 1997, Sullivan sold it for an undisclosed amount to MecklerMedia (now WebMediaBrands).

In 2005 the website and related Search Engine Strategies conference series were sold to Incisive Media for $43 million.

On November 30, 2006 Danny Sullivan left Search Engine Watch, after his resignation announcement on August 29, 2006.

Rebecca Lieb was named editor-in-chief the following month.

In 2015, Incisive Media sold SES, Search Engine Watch, and ClickZ to Blenheim Chalcot.

Google's Matt Cutts has called Search Engine Watch "a must read."

Yahoo's Tim Mayer has said that it is the "most authoritative source on search."

Netscape Search   now an ISP   2/17/2016

Netscape Search   Wikipedia

Netscape Communications (formerly known as Netscape Communications Corporation and commonly known as Netscape) is an American computer services company, best known for Netscape Navigator, its web browser.

When it was an independent company, its headquarters were in Mountain View, California.

Netscape's web browser was once dominant in terms of usage share, but lost most of that share to Internet Explorer during the so-called first browser war.

The usage share of Netscape had fallen from over 90 percent in the mid-1990s to less than one percent by the end of 2006.

Netscape is credited with JavaScript, the most widely used language for client-side scripting of web pages, as well as developing the Secure Sockets Layer Protocol (SSL) for securing online communication, that was much used, before its successor TLS took over.

Netscape stock traded from 1995 until 1999 when it was acquired by AOL in a pooling-of-interests transaction ultimately worth US$10 billion.

Shortly before its acquisition by AOL, Netscape released the source code for its browser and created the Mozilla Organization to coordinate future development of its product.

The Mozilla Organization rewrote the entire browser's source code based on the Gecko rendering engine; all future Netscape releases were based on this rewritten code.

The Gecko engine would later be used to power the Mozilla Foundation's Firefox browser.

Under AOL, Netscape's browser development continued until December 2007, when AOL announced that the company would stop supporting the Netscape browser as of early 2008.

AOL has continued to use the Netscape brand in recent years to market a discount Internet service provider.

Search Engine submission   5/21/2016

Search Engine submission

Search engine submission is how a webmaster submits a website directly to a search engine.

While Search Engine Submission is often seen as a way to promote a web site, it generally is not necessary because the major search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing use crawlers, bots, and spiders that eventually would find most web sites on the Internet all by themselves.

There are two basic reasons to submit a web site or web page to a search engine.

The first reason would be to add an entirely new web site because the site operators would rather not wait for a search engine to discover them.

The second reason is to have a web page or web site updated in the respective search engine.

How web sites are submitted

There are two basic methods still in use today that would allow a webmaster to submit their site to a search engine.

They can either submit just one web page at a time, or they can submit their entire site at one time with a sitemap.

However, all that a webmaster really needs to do is to submit just the home page of a web site.

With just the home page, most search engines are able to crawl a site, provided that it is well designed.

Most websites want to be listed in popular search engines, because that's how most people start their search for a product or service.

A searcher, (or AKA "User"), seeks information on the web, using a search engine.

Websites that appear on the first page of a search are, usually, called the top 10.

Clicking on the blue URL. hyperlink causes the web page. website to appear in the web browser.

Thus, webmasters often highly desire that their sites appear in the top 10 in a search engine search.

This is because searchers are not very likely to look over more than one page of search results, known as a SERPs.

In order to obtain good placement on search results in the various engines, webmasters must optimize their web pages.

The process is called search engine optimization.

Many variables come into play, such as the placement and density of desirable keywords, the hierarchy structure of web pages employed in a web site (i.e., How many clicks from the home page are required to access a particular web page?), and the number of web pages that link to a given web page.

The Google search engine also uses a concept called page rank.

PageRank relies on the uniquely democratic nature of the web by using its vast link structure as an indicator of an individual page's value.

In essence, Google interprets a link from page A to page B as a vote, by page A, for page B.

But, Google looks at considerably more than the sheer volume of votes, or links a page receives; for example, it also analyzes the page that casts the vote.

Votes cast by pages that are themselves "important" weigh more heavily and help to make other pages "important."

Using these and other factors, Google provides its views on pages' relative importance.
