1.6 SOME GOOGLE PARAMETERS
Some of the parameters which we think Google use to decide the position in search engine
results of particular keywords are as follow:
Let’s take an example of "best free antivirus"
1. Page rank (weight age can be 40%)
2. Meta tags (5%)
3. Keywords density (10%)
4. Title tags (10%)
5. Heading tags and other punctuation on pages (5%)
6. Quality content and new content (10%)
7. Domain age (5%)
8. Quality back links (15%)
This is some of the parameters which Google looks from a webpage to fit into there are more like
webpage should meet Google guidelines and should have sitemap with no dead links and many
many many other parameters.
1.7 Future Inventions from Google
• The Google GoBot.
The Google GoBot is a little walking piece of hardware with an unprecedented level of
intelligence. Fifty-thousand beta versions have been produced in the year 2032, set loose on earth to crawl
our cities. A GoBot has just one mission in its electronic mind: uncover fresh information where ever it
may hide, whenever it may show. Details will be reported back to the Google headquarters in real time.
• What went right: Google GoBots were designed to uncover secrets, and they were bound to legal
laws, too. Spying on dark alleys with their night vision lenses they helped report several crimes.
One rather important Las Vegas led drug syndicate had to give up its nationwide activities “due to
those pestering Google bots alerting the police.”
• What went wrong: Google GoBots had their own idea of human privacy. They started lurking in
people’s backyards and gardens, peeking through windows into their bathrooms, questioning
neighbors, and even handing out Google Candy to kids who reveal important information on their
• Google Satellite.
In 2011, Google Inc acquires Satellite Empires’ network of floating eyes in outer space. Using
their image processing technology Google will take a snapshot of everything once a week; plus whenever
something moves, they record that too and update their servers. Now when you look to Google for
information on John M. from Denver, Colorado, not only will you get whatever’s available on the web –
you will also be able to get a crystal clear view on his roof and balcony.
• What went right: Google Satellite with its seamless zooming into four Exabyte raw image data
was a dream come true for city builders and architects alike. Never before would people have
such complete grasp of what the world looks like from above. From complete understanding
sprang completely new ideas.
• What went wrong: Thanks to the ever-preying set of Google Satellite eyes, older people were too
afraid to leave their homes to walk the streets of their neighborhood ever again.
• Google Image Spy.
Many big bosses around the world have a common problem: they don’t know how to monitor
their employee’s internet usage in meaningful ways. One of the biggest causes of delayed projects since
the invention of that world wide web (which will be completely lower-case by 2020) is a staff busy
looking at videos of dogs wearing clothes, tripping housewives, drunk teenagers jumping off the balcony
into trees, subservient Presidents, or scantily clad, mud wrestling ladies battling for no prize at all to the
soundtrack of “I will survive”. In the near future, Google Image Spy will try to solve this disturbance by
analyzing company web traffic and reporting dubious saucy & funny imagery straight to the CEO.
• What went right: Large software projects suddenly got finished in half the time. Global internet
traffic decreased by 40% and System Administrators didn’t need to remind co-workers to stop
sending large attachments.
• What went wrong: Some of the bosses were so busy looking at all the stuff Google Image Spy
dug up, they forget to lead the company and steered right into even bigger chaos.
• Google Ad Walls.
Inspired by a scene in Truffaut’s “Fahrenheit 451,” a Google engineer in 2028 creates Google Ad
Walls. Like a living poster on the wall, they display a variety of items to shop for. The spin here is that
Ad Walls listen to what people in the room are talking about, managing to display context-relevant
information only. If they hear a “Honey, where’s the toothpaste?” in the morning, they will instantly
display the fitting spot advertising toothpaste and talk the viewer into buying it.
• What went right: Lonely people realized they could talk to their walls to suppress boredom.
While not exactly intelligent, the algorithm always managed to stay on topic.
• What went wrong: Landlords installing Ad Walls could lower the rent because they’d get a
commission for items bought. The idea was this way everybody would benefit. However after the
first wave of suicide attempts caused by annoying, ever-talking Ad Walls, Google felt forced to
shut down the program.
• Google Body parts.
It all started with the Google Brain chip, a mix between a backup memory and brain search
engine. You’d plug it into your head and it would keep a record of your life, and also allow you to search
your brain for things you thought you forgot. Google didn’t stop there and introduced all sorts of body
extensions, like the Google Power arms. You could now ask yourself for directions, and your fingers
would point the way. The Google Power arms would later be replaced by the Google Navilegs, which
would completely take over your navigation.
• What went right: The extra brain storage meant you could focus on important things in life, such
as love, philosophy, or altruism. People in general started to be nicer to each other because with a
perfect memory, disputes were easily settled (no more “I remember it differently”). The Google
Babel fish add-on made sure understanding foreign languages was a breeze.
• What went wrong: In one word, Ads. Of course Google displayed ads, and in their goal to make
them as unobtrusive as possible, they only did so during rather inactive brain periods (aka sleep).
At night-time, people would dream of the latest products – during day, their subconscious was
convinced they’d need to track down and buy them. While highly effective, this scheme quickly
came under fire by the American Psychological Association and other groups. The scandal that
finally ended Google Body parts, however, was when an underpaid programmer hacked the
Google Navilegs system and directed his boss towards outside the 9th floor window.
2.1 SEARCH ENGINE
Computing to examine a computer file, disk, database, or network for particular information.
Something that supplies the driving force or energy to a movement, system, or trend.
A computer program that searches for particular keywords and return a list of documents in
which they were found, especially a commercial service that scan documents on the internet
From a recent market research it has been proved that most of the popular websites and
successful websites owner get around 80% of traffic from organic search results.
But, the other 20% of non organic traffic is needed to build a good page rank in Google. As if for
now consider page rank as prestige of the website.
Also it should be noted that for particular keyword (the term used for searches) Google never
charges for organic search results. However, you can pay to get the sponsored listing for those
“The ultimate Search Engine would understand exactly what you
mean and give back exactly what you want.” - LARRY PAGE
3.1 HOW DOES GOOGLE WORKS
Google works on web spider now called a googlebot.
The spider consists of crawler and indexer.
Crawler crawls the WebPages on the internet and also saves the links mentioned on the
webpage and crawl them too. As crawler crawls a particular pages it gets indexed or
cached in the Google database by indexer.
Explanation in Steps
1. Google search engine use software called bots or spider to scour the web
2. These bots and spider find new websites and web pages by following links on the web page.
3. Once Google search engine find a web page, they "read" the text-based content and the search
engine stores this data into a huge library called an index.
4. When we search something on Google the search engine reaches into its gigantic index and
before displaying a list if web pages it uses its Algorithm to calculate which ones best match
your search query then it eventually presents you with search results that are related to your
query which leads you to the website you were looking for!
HOW GOOGLE EARNS
There are various possible ways through which Google generate its income.
The following are:
Google Search Engine
Google Ad sense
Google Ad words
Android (operating system)
4.1 Ad Words
It is the Google main source of revenue. Ad words basically deals with advertising. Reach
people when they are actively looking information about your products and services online, and
send targeted visitors directly to what you are offering. With Ad words it cost-per-click pricing.
It’s easy to control costs- and you only pay when people click on your ad
4.2 Ad Sense
It is basically use for web publishers. Earn more revenue from your website, while provide
visitors with a more rewarding online experience. Google Ad Sense automatically delivers text
and image ads that are precisely targeted to site and site content -ads so well-matched. In fact,
the readers will actually find them useful. And when you add Google web search to the site, ad
sense delivers targeted ads to the search result pages too. With ad sense you earn more ad
revenue with minimal efforts - and no additional cost.
4.3 Page Rank
Developed by Larry page and Sergey brin at the University of Stanford in 1997
Link analysis algorithm, measuring the relative importance of a website
"Page rank is a vote, by all the other web pages on the internet, about how important a web page
is. A link to a web page counts as a vote of support. If there are no incoming links to a web page
then there is no support."
Academic citation literature is applied to calculate page rank
PR(A)= (1-d) + d(PR(t1)/C(t1) + ... + PR(tn)/C(tn))
in this equation-
't1-tn' are pages linking to page A,
'c' is the number of outbund links that a page has and
'd' is a damping factor , usually set to 0.85.
4.4 Sponsored Results
These are the results that appear on the right hand corner of our screens after we execute a search
on Google. Websites that appear on the Sponsored Results tab have an agreement with Google
where they pay Google for showing their website on searches for specific websites. For example,
if we are searching for a Samsung mobile phone, we see websites selling Samsung mobile
phones in the Sponsored links section. Google earns some money when we click on any of these
links. The question is how much money does Google earn from this? Google Ad words allow all
potential advertisers to put up their adverts, specifying the keywords. After assessing the advert,
Google will quote a price for your advert.
4.5 Google mobile search
this can be explain with the help of an example
A) search the web - at the supermarket and need to find the ingredients for Thai curry? just
query "Thai curry ingredients" on your phone's web browser to search through more than 8
billion pages for the recipe that will wow the taste buds.
B) search images - is that an oak tree or an ash tree ? search more than 2 billion images and get
the one you need on your phone with Google image search.
C) search the mobile web - access the mobile web which s made up of site that are specifically
designed to fit your phone screen.
4.6 Google Image search
Google also shows sponsored results for images under Sponsored Links above the rest of
the results. These are also a means to earn a lot of money for Google.
When we sign in to our mail accounts on Gmail which is probably the most popular at
this point in time, we are shown sponsored links on our accounts. And these links are
always relevant to the keywords of the mails that we receive.
Google displays text and banner ads (Google Ad sense) on Orkut profiles and pages.
Google makes money (and justifies giving away the OS) by licensing the Google Apps
that come on most Android phones (but not all). Apps like Gmail, the Android Market,
Google Search, and others come in something called GAPPS. The Market is really where
Google is interested. Sure, the other GAPPS add value to the phone (hence why carriers
license their inclusion on Android-powered phones), but Google is making money with
every app sold through the Market. Even free apps make Google money. Developers
have to pay to have an account to list their apps under. Even ad-sponsored apps are likely
using Google Mobile Ads, so Google’s getting revenue from that source as well.

Google and Yahoo Search Engine Technology Comparison
A search engine, such as Yahoo! or Google, is an online tool that helps users of the World Wide
Web finds the sites and information they're looking for. The internet is a huge and overwhelming
place to look for things. Without search engines such as Yahoo and Google .it would be nearly
impossible to find exactly what you are looking for. This is the precise reason that Google has
continued to be a household name, they focus on saving your time and helping you find exactly
what it is you are looking for on the web with their advertisements being relevant to the search
topic. Yahoo more focuses on ad revenues and increasing page views.
These are the eight major differences what I have found till now.
1 Well Google is faster than Yahoo. Google index the site and articles faster than yahoo and
traffic more gather on Google.
2 Google updates very fast where as yahoo little bit slow.
3 Both search engines are good but in my opinion Google is best search engine because Google
provide always relevant results against query.
4 Google and yahoo both differ from each other and use its own algorithm. Google much
concern about off-page where as Yahoo much concern about one-page factors.
5 As what I know their difference is Yahoo algorithm doesn’t have page ranking feature while
Google has its own page ranking feature and most webmasters think meta description is quite
important in yahoo, but only little importance in Google. Tim Mayor from Yahoo says
6 According to united state serve in April 2008, Google acquired more than 62% search engine
market where as Yahoo 17.2%. It shows that there is very big difference in yahoo search market
and Google search market.
7 Google is simplistic whilst Yahoo is overcomplicated.
8 Google is famous for decentralization and redundancy whereas yahoo isn’t.
The difference is explained with the help of table –
Basis Google Yahoo
Nature Simple complicated
Relevant More relevant Less relevant
Search technology Similar to yahoo Similar to Google
ranking links Inbound links differently Inbound links differently
Redundancy Redundancy present Less redundancy
Update Update more frequently Update less frequently
Algorithm more concern about
Much concern about
Page rank Have own page ranking
Doesn’t have page ranking
In conclusion, the technology behind both Yahoo and Google is very similar but yahoo and Google differ
in the rankings. It is quite obvious that Google, the most important search engine, is the hardest to
penetrate and achieve high positions for competitive keywords. Yahoo has recently changed its policy and
is now harder to manipulate and to its merit also holds the most accurate back link count. Yahoo is more
complicated and advertiser-focused.
