It's always fun to look at new search engines and to see what is happening in the industry. However, while all roads may well lead to Rome, all discussions on search engines eventually return to Google; there is no getting away from the fact that Google is doing more in the search engine industry than anyone else. As a result I'm just going to bite the bullet and spend this column talking about Google-related issues.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue44/search-engines" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue44 regular column phil bradley bbc google algorithm database google search personalisation rss search engine optimisation search technology video Fri, 29 Jul 2005 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1171 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Search Engines: The Google Backlash http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue39/search-engines <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue39/search-engines#author1">Phil Bradley</a> reviews and analyses recent criticisms of the giant and takes an objective view from a broader perspective.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>When I run my courses on advanced Internet searching I always ask the delegates the question 'Which search engine do you tend to use most often?' A few years ago I could always expect to get half a dozen different answers, ranging from AltaVista to Yahoo! with a few others in between. Now however I can almost guarantee that it will be a single answer, and that's 'Google'. We're all aware of the power of Google, and the way in which, in the last couple of years, it has almost totally dominated the search engine scene.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue39/search-engines" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue39 regular column phil bradley bbc google harvard university microsoft oracle data database portal privacy research search technology sword protocol Thu, 29 Apr 2004 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1036 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Search Engines: The New Kids on the Block - Copying Or Competing? http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue32/search-engines <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Search Engines: <a href="/issue32/search-engines#author1">Phil Bradley</a> The new kids on the block - copying or competing?

This can be clearly illustrated this month as two well known favourites, Google and Ixquick are facing up to new competition. This article looks at who is competing with them, and provides some food for thought for those people who automatically go to one or other search engine.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue32/search-engines" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue32 regular column phil bradley bbc google search technology url Sun, 07 Jul 2002 23:00:00 +0000 editor 896 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Search Engines: The Altavista Relaunch, Personalised Search Engines http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue22/search-engines <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue22/search-engines#author1">Phil Bradley</a> on the Altavista relaunch, and Personalised Search Engines.</p> </div> </div> </div> <h2 id="AltaVista_relaunch">AltaVista relaunch</h2> <p>I don't know how many of you were aware that AltaVista [<a name="1">1</a>]was going to relaunch, so it may have come as something of a surprise if you visited after October 25th only to find the general appearance had changed. It was even a surprise for those of us who use it regularly! The re-launch has led to lots of confusion, many unhappy people and lots of comments, so before continuing with the rest of the column this month I'll do my best to set the record straight about what is happening with the engine.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue22/search-engines" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue22 regular column phil bradley alt bbc jisc ukoln university of bath copyright data passwords personalisation portal search technology standards url video zip Tue, 21 Dec 1999 00:00:00 +0000 editor 663 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk
