Few hours ago, Google has launched a new feature allowing users to personalize search results – Google SearchWiki.
Google’s new feature lets you customize your search by re-ranking, deleting, adding, and commenting on the given search results. By clicking on the results – you can move those you find to be related to your needs right to the top.
Playing with this feature, and actually “cleaning” out a phrase I’m frequently following (“TRENDS”, of course) few thoughts crossed my mind:
It takes a lot of work to customize search results according to your need.
1. Google should “pay” users to refine searches or use those who will do this sisyphean work to redefine its algorithm.
2. Google should let you follow the “cleaning work” done by professionals in your field.
Google SearchWiki presents the gap between search results provided by Google to those you would expect from your search engine. The more I use the X sign and promote other results – the more I experience dissatisfaction from Google Search.
What does Google suggest by this tool? should we reconsider automated search in favor of the human based one? .
