The world’s renowned search engine, Google, has been providing the best services to its customers since the moment it entered the Internet arena. It is famous for bringing its innovative and simple means of searching for just about anything under the sun online. To further improve its services and make the lives of people more convenient, Google regularly updates its data and software for enhanced performance. Here are some of the recent updates they’ve made on their innovative search engine.
The months of August and September were packed with a total of 65 updates that had provided much assistance to the web audience. These updates included knowledge graph expansion, how page quality is being calculated, and changes on how local results are determined. These Google updates for referenced months are meant to improve search quality, thus, developing a search engine for the future. Among the significant updates made by Google are requirements for more high quality content from trusted sources, improved displays of various search features, better Safe Search to handle data with adult-related content, refreshing of data used to generate site links, an added lists and collections component to the knowledge graph, development of signals used to determine the relevance of result titles for blog web pages, and a better understanding of natural language searches for calculator features that are focused on currencies and arithmetic. One of the most innovative updates they’ve completed is their knowledge graph, which presents factual information and enhancements related to many types of searches. This major launch extended the knowledge graph to English-speaking locations outside of the United States of America.
To further improve and make life better, Google improved the accuracy and coverage of their system to yield more relevant web results. This change is beneficial to local users as it provides appropriate ranking of web results in accordance to their overall relevance to the subject being searched. Google made this possible while displaying fewer results for most queries to display the most relevant results as quickly as possible. It also made search results, more specifically those with long-tail auto-complete predictions, much more relevant by using new spelling algorithms that will definitely make your research work more convenient. Furthermore, Google became stricter in its Safe Search function by decreasing the amount of adult-related content that may show up in image search mode. This helps parents provide increased safety and security for children searching for information online. Google also developed a tool that enables their users to view the latest content of a given site that’s relevant to a given search query.
