Google Battling Information Overload

What Google is doing to Battle Information Overload?

Bing, and its “decision engine,” is planning on relying on its partnership with Facebook to give the search market something that it has never seen before – a search engine that’s results show up based on what your friends like.

But what is Google doing to handle the Information overload that now is the Internet? With so much information on the Internet, it becomes harder and harder for Google to sort out the mess each day.

One of the things that Google is doing, and has recently stepped up and announced, is that its algorithm is to start recognizing who is writing what on the Internet.

Google “knows that great content comes from great authors” and the thinking behind this is that this will allow them to be one step closer to sorting through the information overload that the Internet now is. The markup uses the existing standards of the relatively new HTML attribute rel=”author”. This will also give authors the extra motivation to provide as much value on the Internet as possible.

An Outlook on the Google +1

Google +1 seems to be its way of battling Facebook’s “Like” feature and Bing’s plans on using it. It might even be a better way because using Facebook to help Bing in the search engines is somewhat limited because everybody’s friend’s amounts are limited on Facebook – some people have thousands of friends, but many people only have a few friends.

Google’s +1 seems like the first step to socializing their website. It is described as the “tour Guide of the Internet” and compared to a “note that has been left in the kitchen to help you make decisions for your day.” It is there way of socially integrating their search engines, and the thing is that Google actually has a lot of experience in social networking.

What most people don’t know is that Google owns and operates the most used social networking service in Google and India call Orkut of which only 2.2% of all of the users are from the United States. India, a country of over 1 billion people within the city lines, uses Orkut as its authority social networking site, and from this wealth of experience and knowledge Google will be able to apply it to their search engines, using the social experience unlike Facebook and Bing, but perhaps with the potential to be better – all the while allowing them to back of the weight link building campaigns hold in the SERPs.. The Internet experience, for now, starts with search – and using your friends and a “Tour Guide” is what ultimately will help Google battle the information overload.

    Bing/MSN did it right… they joined up with Facebook. Unlike Google who still thinks they can take on Facebook.

    Google+ is going to crash and burn. The fact that the +1 button isn’t integrated into the Google+ framework is laughable. Could you imagine having to have a separate Facebook profile to check just to see what somebody has ‘Liked’?

    Google need to stick to search, and search only. If you’re good at one thing, stick with it. Otherwise, you lose focus of what you’re good at which in turn opens the door for another company to swoop in and gain position.

  7. Google +1 is definitely its way of battling Facebook’s “Like” feature.

    Using this, Google can easily discover the pattern between people’s interest and what they normally look for. Therefore, different search results can happen for the same keyword for different people.

    Now it’s more about personalisation.

    As the two giants battle it out and form alliances, users will get more flexibility in terms of the way they can search for information and hopefully both will stay relevant in the future. But the effect of Google’s monopoly is becoming more and more apparent as Microsoft has been rumoured to be trying to sell off Bing.
