Google - Blog Search

! Google Ultimate Interface About Google In 1996-1997, Larry Page and Sergey Brin came up with an algorithm to rank web pages, called PageRank. Realizing the potential to improve search engines, they tried and failed to sell the technology to any. So they founded Google, which in an incredibly short period of time has become one of the world’s most powerful companies. While primarily known as a search engine, Google now makes a wide variety of web-based and other software and is known for investing in wide-ranging projects outside their core such as through their philanthropic arm, Google.org. Google’s enourmously successful advertising business accounts for almost all of their revenue and allows Google to subsidize many other ideas. Google is a market and quality leader in web search, online maps, online video (through YouTube), and areas. Alternatives to Google Why not use nothing but Google all the time?

Search Google Anonymously While Logged Into Google In Firefox One of the things that keeps some users from using Google Search is the certainty that everything that is done on the site is being logged and analyzed by Google. While it is possible to overcome this, for instance by launching searches only in the browser's private browsing mode, or using search engines such as Startpage that use Google search results but do not track you, you may prefer an automated solution that just works in the background without you doing anything. You could try and use Google while you are not signed in to your Google Account, but that too means some form of tracking as there are other means besides tracking a user by account. Plus, it means that you cannot use other Google Services such as Gmail properly without signing in first again. Another option would be to use two different web browsers, one for Google searches, the other for all other activities. The new Firefox add-on Searchonymous introduces a solution that resolves this issue.

Even as search marketers, we are guilty of focusing a disproportionate amount of our time and resources into optimizing our campaigns, websites, and social media to Google. Google dictates what is acceptable and shape content strategies, campaign messaging, even business models.

In many ways, Bing was painted as everything Google was not. #1 – Reading Between the Lines Bing is often accused of being too literal for words. Google, on the other hand, changed the way users search with its Hummingbird update in that introduced semantic search. Balancing Bing and Google The first step is to get your on-page SEO spot on. #2 – The Backlinks Story In contrast, Bing’s focus on backlinks is not as intense as Google. #3 – Crawl Depth In Closing
