The search engine

PageRank

Main article: PageRank

Google's algorithm uses a patented system called PageRank to help rank web pages that match a given search string. The PageRank algorithm computes a recursive score for web pages, based on the weighted sum of the PageRanks of the pages linking to them. The PageRank derives from human-generated links, and correlates well with human concepts of importance. Mathematical PageRanks (out of 100) for a simple network (PageRanks reported by google are rescaled logarithmically). ... Flowcharts are often used to graphically represent algorithms. ... For other uses, see Patent (disambiguation). ... Mathematical PageRanks (out of 100) for a simple network (PageRanks reported by google are rescaled logarithmically). ... This article is about modern humans. ... Positive linear correlations between 1000 pairs of numbers. ...


The exact percentage of the total of web pages that Google indexes are not known, as it is very hard to actually calculate it. Previous keyword-based methods of ranking search results, used by many search engines that were once more popular than Google, would rank pages by how often the search terms occurred in the page, or how strongly associated the search terms were within each resulting page. In addition to PageRank, Google also uses other secret criteria for determining the ranking of pages on result lists, reported to number over 150.[2]


Search results

Google not only indexes and caches web pages but also takes "snapshots" of other file types, which include PDF, Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, Flash SWF, plain text files and much more.[3] Except in the case of text and SWF files, the cached version is a conversion to (X)HTML, allowing those without the corresponding viewer application to read the file. “PDF” redirects here. ... Microsoft Word is a word processor program from Microsoft. ... Microsoft Excel is a spreadsheet program written and distributed by Microsoft for computers using the Microsoft Windows operating system and Apple Macintosh computers. ... This article is about the proprietary file format . ...


Users can customize the search engine, by setting a default language, using the "SafeSearch" filtering technology and set the number of results shown on each page. Google has been criticized for placing long-term cookies on users' machines to store these preferences, a tactic which also enables them to track a user's search terms and retain the data for more than a year. For any query, up to the first 1000 results can be shown with a maximum of 100 displayed per page. This article is about the HTTP state mechanism. ...


Non-web sources of data

Despite its immense index, there is also a considerable amount of data in databases, which are accessible from websites by means of queries but not by links. This so-called deep web is minimally covered by Google and contains, for example, catalogs of libraries, official legislative documents of governments, phone books, and more. The deep Web (or Deepnet, invisible Web or hidden Web) refers to World Wide Web content that is not part of the surface Web indexed by search engines. ...

Google optimization

Since Google is the most popular search engine, many webmasters have become eager to influence their website's Google rankings. An industry of consultants has arisen to help websites raise their rankings on Google and on other search engines. This field, called search engine optimization, attempts to discern patterns in search engine listings, and then develop a methodology for improving rankings. A typical search results page Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the volume and quality of traffic to a web site from search engines via natural (organic or algorithmic) search results for targeted keywords. ... A webmaster is a person responsible for designing, developing, marketing, or maintaining Web site(s). ... A typical search results page Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the volume and quality of traffic to a web site from search engines via natural (organic or algorithmic) search results for targeted keywords. ...


As Google's algorithms and results have gained the trust of web users, commercial websites will profit from subverting these results by artificially inflating their rankings. Some search engine optimization firms have attempted to inflate specific Google rankings by various artifices, and thereby draw more searchers to their client's sites. One of Google's main challenges has been to weaken some of these attempts by reducing the ranking of sites known to use them.


Search engine optimization encompasses both "on page" factors (like body copy, title tags, H1 heading tags and image alt attributes) and Off Page Optimization factors (like anchor text and PageRank). The general idea is to affect Google's relevance algorithm by incorporating the keywords being targeted in various places "on page", in particular the title tag and the body copy (note: the higher up in the page, the better its keyword prominence and thus the ranking). Too many occurrences of the keyword, however, cause the page to look suspect to Google's spam checking algorithms. The alt attribute is used in HTML and XHTML documents to specify text that is to be rendered when the element to which it is applied cannot be rendered. ... Anchor text is the visible text in a hyperlink. ...


The Google webmaster guidelines were published for website owners who would like to raise their rankings when using legitimate optimization consultants.[4] The Google webmaster guidelines are a list of suggested practices Google has provided as guidance to webmasters. ...


Uses of Google

A corollary use of Google — and other Internet search engines — is that it can help translators to determine the most common way of expressing ideas in the English language (and other languages). This is generally done by doing a 'count' of different variants, thereby establishing which expression is more common. While this approach requires careful judgment, it does improve the ability of non-native translators to use more idiomatically correct English expressions. The success of the Google search engine was mainly due to its powerful PageRank algorithm and its simple, easy-to-use interface. ... An idiom is an expression (i. ...


Google dance

Google dance refers to the period of time when Google indices are tuned. This will often cause both a fluctuation in index size as well a significant change in a web site's search result position.

Googlability

Googlability is the degree to which an individual index can be referenced.


Functionality

The Google search engine has many Intuitive Features making it more functional. This could have played a role in making it as popular as it is today. Google is one of the top ten most-visited websites today[5]. Some of its features include a definition link for most searches including dictionary words, a list of how many results you got on your search, links to other searches (e.g. you misspelled something, it gives you a link to the search results had you typed in the correct search), and many more. It is unknown whether its functionality, speed, or luck is what brought it its current status today (2008).


Search syntax

Google's search engine normally accepts queries as a simple text area, and breaks up the user's text into a sequence of search terms, which will usually be words that are to occur in the results, but may also be phrases, delimited by quotations marks ("), qualified terms, with a prefix such as "+", "-", or one of several advanced operators, such as "site:". The Google Help Pages document all of these additional queries.


Google's Advanced Search web form gives several additional fields which may be used to qualify searches by such criteria as date of first retrieval. All advanced queries transform to regular queries, usually with additional qualified terms.


Query expansion

Google applies query expansion to the submitted search query, transforming it into the query that will actually be used to retrieve results. As with page ranking, the exact details of the algorithm Google uses are deliberately obscure, but certainly the following transformations are among those that occur: Query expansion (QE) is the process of reformulating a seed query to improve retrieval performance in information retrieval operations. ...

  • Term reordering: in information retrieval this is a standard technique to reduce the work involved in retrieving results. This transformation is invisible to the user, since the results ordering uses the original query order to determine relevance;
  • Common words, also called stop words, are selectively dropped, although they are still used in phrases and when they are qualified by the "+" prefix[1];
  • Stemming is used to increase search quality by keeping small syntactic variants of search terms[2];
  • There is a limited facility to fix possible misspellings in queries.

Information retrieval (IR) is the science of searching for information in documents, searching for documents themselves, searching for metadata which describe documents, or searching within databases, whether relational stand-alone databases or hypertextually-networked databases such as the World Wide Web. ... A stemmer is a program or algorithm which determines the morphological root of a given inflected (or, sometimes, derived) word form -- generally a written word form. ...

Search engine features

Besides the main search engine feature of searching for text, the search engine can also be used as a calculator, currency converter, dictionary and many other useful tools. The largest number the Google calculator can compute (based on studies conducted at the University of Bath in January 2008) is 1.07257416E308. The University of Bath is a campus university located in Bath, England. ...

Domain names

In addition to the main URL Google.com, Google owns 160 domain names for each of the countries/regions in which is has been localized.[7] As Google is an American company, the main domain name can be considered as the U.S. one though the gTLD .com can be used by any company in the world (not only those from the United States). Google.us does exist but is only a redirection to google.com because dot-US is by far less common than dotcom in the United States. An example is Google.ca or Google Aus.
