📚 This Week's Reading List
Why Google Won the Search Engine War by
Daniel Kosir (3min)
In short, Google had the best utility in terms of
search with a better business model that doesn't
ruin the user experience. What people seek for
relevant information to their search queries.
Indexing information based on linking helped them
surface relevant information. Also, implementing a
clickthrough rate helped them show relevant
information in search results.
discovery and marketing by Benedict
‘Yahoo’s directory didn’t scale’ misses the point.
What we’re really seeing is a trade-off between two
problems. You can have a list, solving
discovery and recommendation, but once the domain
gets big then your list is either unusably long or
partial and incomplete. Or you can have a searchable
index of everything but you’re on your own working
out what’s good and finding things you didn't know
to search for.
Future of Search Is Boutique by
Sari Azout (9min)
It’s no longer enough to organize the world’s
information. It becomes important to organize the
world’s trustworthy information. The opportunity in
search is not to attack Google head-on with a
massive, one-size-fits-all horizontal aggregator,
but instead to build boutique search engines that
index, curate, and organize things in new ways.
