If you want to find out something these days, you Google it. But being the planet's go-to search engine just isn't enough for the booming company, which is fast moving towards a radical new technological frontier. A boy - maybe he's in his early 20s - balances in a red hammock in the corner of a cafe, the northern Californian sun streaming through a picture window behind him. Black T-shirt, blue jeans, black sneakers. He has a laptop computer on his knees.
La recherche par facettes (en anglais: faceted search), également appelée ‘navigation à facettes’, est un moyen d’accéder rapidement à l’information via une catégorisation dynamique et combinatoire. Ce système permet d’identifier une information selon différents critères de recherche. Il s’oppose au principe de classification hiérarchique, unique, obéissant à une taxonomie prédéfinie.

Curation is becoming an increasingly important term and for good reason: the online world is increasingly messy, muddled and full of blind alleys.

One of the major trends explored in Econsultany’s new SEO Agencies Buyer’s Guide is that user search behaviour is changing. In this industry, there’s no shortage of information around how and why marketers are using SEO, but to me, there seems to be a distinct lack of research which looks from the other side of the fence at how we use search as internet users. Best practice is extremely important, but so is understanding how people are actually using search engines. So I jumped at the chance to check out some recent research out by Performics and ROI Research, where they had surveyed people’s motivations and behaviour when using search engines. The data is US-based, but in my opinion reflect trends that are globally applicable.
