In 1998, Larry Page and Sergey Brin published a paper [PDF] titled Anatomy of a Large-Scale Hypertextual Search Engine , in which they outlined the core technology behind Google and the theory behind PageRank. Now, twelve years after that paper was published, the team behind social search engine Aardvark has drafted its own research paper that looks at the social side of search. Dubbed Anatomy of a Large-Scale Social Search Engine , the paper has just been accepted to WWW2010, the same conference where the classic Google paper was published. Aardvark will be posting the paper in its entirety on its official blog at 9 AM PST, and they gave us the chance to take a sneak peek at it. It’s an interesting read to say the least, outlining some of the fundamental principles that could turn Aardvark and other social search engines into powerful complements to Google and its ilk.
