  • 1. Anything but Google You can say “NO” to Google Tuesday, 19th November 2013, London Karen Blakeman karen.blakeman@rba.co.uk, www.rba.co.uk Slides available at http://www.rba.co.uk/as/ Also on authorSTREAM and Slideshare X XX 21/11/13 www.rba.co.uk 1 This presentation is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License
  • 2. Why not Google? Results vary from one moment to the next – results are personalised – 500-600 changes to its algorithms/year – we are all Google’s lab rats subjected to up to 12 experiments each time we visit – Just Testing: Google Users May See Up To A Dozen Experiments • http://searchengineland.com/just-testing-google-searchers-may-s Google is continually dropping advanced search commands and options – more difficult to get what WE want instead of what Google thinks we want 21/11/13 www.rba.co.uk 2
  • 3. It’s difficult to kick the Google habit Good coverage Much of the time it gives reasonable results Personalisation is sometimes a good thing Synchronisation across multiple platforms and services means can access calendars, bookmarks, maps and directions any time, anywhere Can’t escape “Powered by Google” - Google search engine used by many websites for searching their pages 21/11/13 www.rba.co.uk 3
  • 4. Gary's Social Media Count | PERSONALIZE MEDIA http://www.personalizemedia.com/garys-social-media-count/ 21/11/13 www.rba.co.uk 4
  • 5. What is used depends on the topic http://www.business2communit Is Google+ Really The 2nd Most Popular Social Network? Google+ probably not intentionally used by searchers. Reviews of hotels found via Google Maps are on Google+ 21/11/13 www.rba.co.uk 5
  • 6. Search Engine Market Share http://theeword.co.uk/info/search_engine_market.html 21/11/13 www.rba.co.uk 6
  • 7. Apple Makes Bing The "Default Search Engine" For Siri http://searchengineland.com/apple-makes-bing-the-default-search-engine-for-siri 21/11/13 www.rba.co.uk 7
  • 8. Private browsing - quickest way “un-personalise”search Private Browsing/Incognito ignores tracking and search cookies – Chrome - New Incognito window - Ctrl+Shift+N – FireFox - File, New Private Window - Ctrl+Shift+P – Internet Explorer – Tools, InPrivate Browsing [location varies depending on which version you have] - Ctrl+Shift+P – Opera – File, New Private Window - Ctrl+Shift+N – Safari – click on Safari next to the Apple symbol in the menu bar, select Private Browsing and then click on OK. Will not remove country personalisation
  • 9. Bing/Yahoo Yahoo now uses Bing’s database, commands and ranking algorithms Yahoo Finance still available No advanced search screen on Bing - use commands List at Advanced Operator Reference http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff795620.aspx filetype: site: inbody: inurl: AND, NOT, OR parentheses for complex Boolean searches NEAR:n where n is a number, specifies that the terms must be within that number of words of each other and in any order -banana NEAR:3 toffee Date option only for US version 21/11/13 www.rba.co.uk 9
  • 10. Limit by date Bing – US version only 21/11/13 Yahoo – all versions www.rba.co.uk 10
  • 11. Bing http://www.bing.com/ Results seem to be more consumer/retail focused – more ‘shopping’ than research – results improve as soon as you start using the advanced search commands Sometimes more up to date than Google – updates sites more frequently – adds new sites more quickly – useful if you are looking for information on a new company or organisation BUT interesting features and options available to US users only – changing location and version of Bing does not always work – using anonymous proxy does not always work 21/11/13 www.rba.co.uk 11
  • 12. Bing search history “Adaptive search” – but can turn off search history 21/11/13 www.rba.co.uk 12
  • 13. Bing gets personal – US users only 21/11/13 www.rba.co.uk 13
  • 14. Bing vs Google 21/11/13 www.rba.co.uk 14
  • 15. bingiton.com 21/11/13 www.rba.co.uk 15
  • 16. Bing Bing images – good alternative to Google Bing videos – good alternative to Google (includes YouTube in results) Bing maps – much improved over the last 2-3 years and generally a good alternative to Google but availability of different views including Streetside dependant on location Bing news – limited coverage of non-US and regional titles compared with Google Bing Social (Twitter and Facebook search) – US only Close links and integration with Facebook, also LinkedIn 21/11/13 www.rba.co.uk 16
  • 17. Yahoo! Finance 21/11/13 www.rba.co.uk 17
  • 18. DuckDuckGo – http://duckduckgo.com/ Does not track, does not personalise Results are a compilation of about 50 sources including Wikipedia, Wolfram Alpha, Bing, Blekko and its own Web crawler DuckDuckBot Advanced search commands include: site: inbody: intitle: filetype: sort:date to sort by date (uses results from Blekko) region:cc (e.g. de) to boost a country DuckDuckGo Syntax http://help.duckduckgo.com/customer/portal/articles/300304 DuckDuckGo – silly name but a neat little search tool http://www.rba.co.uk/wordpress/2011/11/07/duckduckgo-silly-name-but-a-nea 21/11/13 www.rba.co.uk 18
  • 19. DuckDuckGo Great if you are fed up with Google “spamming” your results list with pages from just two or three sites Great if you want a good range of different types of sites in your results Web is the default but click on the downward pointing arrow next to the search box on the results page to see other options (some of them Google) 21/11/13 www.rba.co.uk 19

Mandated Open Access US All research publications resulting from work funded by the US National Institutes of Health are expected to be deposited in PubMed Central (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/) – some material embargoed for up to 12 or 24 months ( http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/journals/) – Europe PubMed Central (http://europepmc.org/) part of PMC network of international repositories UK 1st of April 2013 - researchers at UK Research Institutions are expected to publish as open access any peer‐reviewed research papers and conference proceedings that acknowledge Research Council UK funding 21/11/13 www.rba.co.uk 48
  • 49. UK Gold versus Green OA Gold OA – researchers publish their articles in journals that offer open access publishing (can be established “conventional” publishers) – articles can be made available free of charge to readers immediately – author or institution/department pays article processing fee – CC-BY Green OA – researchers deposit copies of articles in an institutional or subjectbased repository, subject to copyright/license permissions – repository makes copies available to the public either immediately or embargoed (more common) – period of embargo varies (for example http://cdn.elsevier.com/assets/pdf_file/0018/121293/external-embargo-list. ) – CC-BY-NC 21/11/13 www.rba.co.uk 49
  • 50. Fragmentation of open access Where are the open access publications? – Individual OA articles within existing subscription journals? – Separate OA journals? – Publishers web site? – Author’s website – Institutional repositories – Aggregators e.g. Scopus, Web of Science, Google? – “Predatory publishers” • see Jeffrey Beall’s list at http://scholarlyoa.com/publishers/ 21/11/13 www.rba.co.uk 50
