Reuters | Ask Jeeves Personalises Web Searches: "California-based Ask Jeeves said MyJeeves helps users compile search queries and results, which they can then save, sort into folders, annotate and share. The resulting list of documents then becomes searchable within MyJeeves.
'With MyJeeves, you're now creating your own personal Web,' Jim Lanzone, senior vice president of search properties at Ask Jeeves, said in an interview on Monday."

Observing Real Time Search:
"Both Dogpile and MetaCrawler have setup live feeds of the search query strings that are being entered into their respective meta search engines. These feeds are available in filtered or unfiltered formats and produce a scrolling list of search queries that are being typed in as you watch. The feeds can provide some insight into what's heavy on the minds of searches on any given day. For instance, as I've been typing this article Hurricane Ivan and other hurricane related phrases have been appearing on each list every few minutes. "

Delving Deep Inside the Searcher's Mind:
"Google was perceived as the leader in terms of both customer experience and satisfaction. However, although actual search results returned by Yahoo!, Google, Ask Jeeves, Lycos and MSN were not dramatically different, Google users had a higher perceived rate of success and satisfaction.
'Search engines are at performance parity when success is measured objectively,' said Edison. 'Despite performance, people prefer Google.'"

Think local, act Google | CNET News.com:
"Google polished up its relatively new local search service Tuesday by simplifying the site's layout and enhancing query results with detailed maps. Still only in test form, Google Local lets people search for addresses or information on shops, businesses or landmarks. Because the service draws on vast amounts of Web data, it had previously served more inexact answers to user queries. Now, Google Local delivers more precise query matches, the Mountain View, Calif.-based company said, and it displays maps of businesses within the list of results. Web surfers can zoom in and out of the maps without refreshing the page, too."

Four things Yahoo can do that Google Can't
Unlike Google, Yahoo lets you see all links to a particular domain rather than a URL, lets you filter out your own site when doing reverse link lookups, lets you search for more than 10 words in a query and lets you search for RSS/Atom/web feeds. Learn more in the PDF file from Tara Calishain

The Google Browser (kottke.org):
"Last summer, Anil Dash suggested that it would be a good move for Google to develop a Google browser based on Mozilla. Give that kid a gold star because it looks more than plausible. Mozilla Developer Day 2004 was recently held at the Google Campus. Google is investing heavily in JavaScript-powered desktop-like web apps like Gmail and Blogger (the posting inferface is now WYSIWYG). Google could use their JavaScript expertise (in the form of Gmail ubercoder Chris Wetherell) to build Mozilla applications. Built-in blogging tools. Built-in Gmail tools. Built-in search tools. A search pane that watches what you're browsing and suggests related pages and search queries or watches what you're blogging and suggests related pages, news items, or emails you've written. Google Toolbar++. You get the idea."

How Effective Is Your Keyword Research?:
"Many search engine marketers and ad agencies offer keyword research services. Keyword research and analysis aren't as simple as using the tools available at Overture and Google. Web site owners must go beyond these tools and look at the big picture."

ResourceShelf - Answer Engines
More and more "answer engines" are appearing - rather then sending you to a page that may or may not have an answer to your query, many engines (Teoma & MSN in particular), seem to be making headway extracting the answers that you are looking for and presenting them directly.

Capturing Your Personal Web:
"Forget bookmarks: Web content managers allow you to create your own personal, searchable cache of web pages.
This makes them ideal alternatives to the wimpy bookmark/favorites utilities offered by most browsers. The problem with bookmarks is that over time, once you've saved hundreds or thousands, it's easy to forget what a page is about, or why you bookmarked it. Worse, bookmarks break the moment content is removed or gets shifted from its original location.
Web content managers solve this problem by saving pages, either in a local data store on your own computer, or in Furl's case, on a remote server that's accessible from any net-connected computer."

Is Google Broken? - W3Reports - Daily Webmaster News:
"Google was written in C and C using ANSI C and Linux.
The database was constructed using a Document_ID that is associated with each Web page. This document_ID was published as being a 4-byte unsigned long integer. This means that for every single Web page Google has in their index, an ID was created to identify this Web page. But like everything, there is a limit and a 4-byte unsigned long integer has a maximum value of 4,294,967,296. So if no changes are made to their database structure, it would mean Google has probably reached this threshold. And as new pages are added, old pages are removed (disappear). Quite alarming isn't it?"
