Google to tinker with search engine, even though it works perfectly well

15 March 2012

Google PopeyeEver used Google's search engine and thought: "This needs to be more sophisticated and fancy!" Chances are, you haven't. They liven up proceedings with some 'doodles' now and then and, if there's any improvements that need making, then they could get rid of the 'I'm Feeling Lucky' button which is only used by psychopaths.

However, Google are looking at giving their search engine something of an overhaul.

Instead of showing a list of blue web links, the new search engine will present more facts and direct answers to search queries. They'll do this by using ‘semantic search technology’, which sounds like something from an Isaac Asmiov novel.

Basically, users will now see more answers, rather than mere web links... not that you wanted anything more than a web link, but there you go. Ostensibly, it'll be a mixture of what you're familiar with and something that looks like the eerie Wolfram Alpha. It might even start calling you 'Dave' and sing 'Daisy Daisy' at you.

For every website on Earth, it'll be fun trying to work out the best way of getting in their already stupid ranking system, not to mention the hateful Google News feed which hates Bitterwallet so. Not that we're peeved by it at all.

    @rob I had some government training on just this kind of thing. Get your assistant to type "fox images" into the Google box and away you go.
