Can you remember the days of old when it comes to search? Many of us can remember the stone age style of search where basic keyword searches were the thing. But look at where we are at now. With the invention of the ever changing search algorithms, we’ve moved from this basic keyword style search to natural language processing. There sure has been huge steps taken in search since then.
These leaps and bounds have really helped search engines understand what people are wanting to search for. These newer search algorithms allow users to be able to search for the content they want easier than ever before. Hortense Soulier has written a YouMoz post on the future of search.
