Google, MSN Search, Yahoo!, AOL, and most other search engines collect and store records of your search queries. If these records are revealed to others, they can be embarrassing or even cause great harm. Recent events highlight the danger that search logs pose. Disclosures like AOL's are not the only threats to your privacy. Search companies should limit data retention and make their logging practices more transparent to the public,4 while Congress ought to clarify and strengthen privacy protections for search data.

Find Other Web Sites Hosted on a Web Server Find other sites hosted on a web server by entering a domain or IP address above. Note: For those of you interested, as of May 2014, my database has grown to over 100 million domain names. I am now offering this domain list for purchase. A reverse IP domain check takes a domain name or IP address pointing to a web server and searches for other sites known to be hosted on that same web server. Background All web sites are hosted on web servers, which are computers running specialized software that distribute web content as requested. As of 2003, more than 87% of all active domains names were found to share their IP addresses (i.e. their web servers) with one or more additional domains.

Is Keyword Search About To Hit Its Breaking Point? As the Web swells with more and more data, the predominant way of sifting through all of that data—keyword search—will one day break down in its ability to deliver the exact information we want at our fingertips. In fact, some argue that keyword search is already delivering diminishing returns—as the slide above by Nova Spivack implies. Spivack is the CEO and founder of semantic Web startup Radar Networks and is pushing his view that semantic search will help solve these problems. “Keyword search is okay,” he says, “but if the information explosion continues we need something better.” At a certain point, with billions and billions of Web pages to sift through, keyword search just won’t cut it anymore. Spivack explains: Keyword search engines return haystacks, but what we really are looking for are the needles . So how do we get beyond keyword search and Google’s PageRank? Spivack covered these issues during a presentation earlier this month at the Next Web conference in Amsterdam.
