The Google Dance
Google apparently had a party this past Tuesday. The party invited people who study and attempt to use their knowledge of Google’s algorithm to boost rankings of their site on Google’s search engine results pages. An article at CNN.com brings up the party as well as search marketing and the value of being listed within the first few search engine results pages. CNN.com also credits Shari Thurow with saying that the “best way to increase a site’s search engine ranking is to offer valuable content and products.”
While I was reading this article, I noticed Peter Norvig‘s name. I recognize his name, because he is a co-author of a favorite undergraduate computing book, Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach. I am unable to see limits to Google’s awesome ability to recruit top-quality computing professionals like Norvig.
