Relative search

Its been a while since I have posted on my blog. There has been a lot of work to do and i’m in the process of consolidating this blog with my tumblog. More to come but for now a quick post on Google Search Wiki.

I have been using it for the past few weeks on and i finally figured out why it annoys me way more than the average beta product — I have philosophically issues with this product, its inconsistent with what I want from a Google search.

I have become accustomed to Google representing a canonical point of view. Now all of a sudden Google has become a swamp of relativity. I have almost a physical response to seeing the arrows up and down on the results. Its fascinating that they would try this — after years of debate on the merits of personalized search — im surprised and watching closely, but now from afar — I wish would add a switch to turn this off.

    Relativity is what made Google so highly relevant in the early days with Page Rank. Page Rank lets well established organizations “vote” who they want to give legitimacy to. That was a big improvement over keyword stuffing, but still extremely oligarchical. What you see here is further democratization of the ranking process and I think if implemented properly can only be a good thing.

    Using Google or other search engine for good traffic is really hard because you have lots of competitors..
    Good work..
