Google Revamps Search Engine to Feature In-depth Articles

Google, your ultimate search engine revamps its search to feature more content, appropriate, in-depth articles when you desire to use Google search. As a search engine, Google has gained popularity long ago, and now they want to modify their search patterns so that the users are able to read lucid, easy-flowing, in-depth information about their search.

While getting a quick-hit of information is one of the great benefits of the Internet, sometimes people want to know more about a certain topic; actually, they want to dig into the topic. If Google searches were only based on the particular words searched, it would not be enough to fulfill the users desires. Google is addressing this need by re-configuring its search results to help users find more in-depth articles. This time, Google doesn’t want the user to miss anything.

“Our research indicates perhaps 10 percent of people’s daily information needs fit this category — topics like stem cell research, happiness, and love, to name just a few,” Google’s Pandu Nayak wrote in a blog post. “That’s why over the next few days, we’ll be rolling out a new feature to help you find relevant in-depth articles in the main Google Search results.”

In general, the “Google Search” features are a huge hit among users; the vitality of each day gets new meaning by the graphics and now here is another reason to cheer up. From images to  videos to maps to other related articles, everything is going to be spiced up.

Google’s in-depth search results will be ranked, algorithmically showing “high-quality” articles, papers, and blog posts. For example, Nayak wrote, if a user wants to learn more about censorship they’ll find an article written by Salman Rushdie for The New Yorker. Or, if someone wants to know about Legos, a Google search will bring up longer articles on the plastic toy’s engineering, gender dynamics, and art. Another field of concern is sports. All types of sport information will be verifiable true. No wrong information will be provided based on rumors. The searches will be based on true information, not just current or in vogue matters.

If publishers want to make sure their in-depth articles appear high in Google Search listings, the tech giant offers webmaster guidelines on just how to do that. These guidelines include pagination, logos, and authorship markup.

“I’m happy to see people continue to invest in thoughtful in-depth content that will remain relevant for months or even years after publication,” Nayak wrote. “This is exactly what you’ll find in the new feature. In addition to well-known publishers, you’ll also find some great articles from lesser-known publications and blogs.”

Currently, the in-depth articles feature is only available on in English. It’s unclear if it will roll out to other languages. As more and more people are using Google search through gadgets, the more it needs to modify itself. The newly available search results are stated to be provided in all types of gadgets. And users won’t need to download any app for this; no Wikipedia app will be needed anymore, hopes the developer.

This in-depth search modification is going to be another feather in Google’s cap. After quirky dongle, sparky glass, marvelous mobiles, it’s their turn to turn Google search into more artful one. Obviously, it is more than just a search engine. Google’s attempt to revamp their search engine may bring something ‘extra’ into our lives. The features and in-depth articles may provide us more information for our information hungry minds and news hungry hearts. We just keep on keeping faith in Google.

    It’s surprising that the Guardian Express allowed such a poorly written article, full of hyperbole, glowing accolades toward Google, and silly metaphors to be published. Although readers might excuse the writer for having a poor grasp of the English language, I’m appalled that the publisher saw fit to print such a poorly edited piece.
