Never before has it been so easy to find information so quickly until the advent of the Internet, especially with a google search. And it is that any user with a data rate and a smartphone can search and find what he needs by typing a couple of words in Google. But the search engine will provide you with a new tool to find what you have in mind faster.
Google will show you more suggestions in its search engine
The people of Mountain View already know what you want to find on the Internet before you type it. No, they have not yet developed software to read users’ minds, but they are capable of predicting what you want to search for. As you know, as you type, new suggestions appear so that you don’t type so much and focus on what you want to find. But Google is working on a new recommendation system to navigate faster.
Until now, some of the search results had below some suggestions that you might find useful and, in the end, a button marked next. This will still search for these terms, but will now be called ‘show more’. This will be useful if you want to search for more similar results and not skip directly to one of the suggested terms, making navigation easier. According to Android Police, this function is currently in the testing phase but it is likely that we will see it very soon.
Introducing the three phases of Google Search
Google Search works in three phases, but not all pages go through each of them:
- Crawling: Google downloads text, images, and videos from pages it finds on the Internet using automated programs called “crawlers.”
- Indexing: Google analyzes the text, images, and video files on pages and stores the information in Google’s index, a large database.
- Search Results Posting: When a user searches on Google, Google returns relevant information about their query.
Publication of search results
When users enter their queries, our system searches the index for pages that match them and returns the results that we consider to be the most relevant and of the highest quality. To determine this relevance, the system takes hundreds of factors into account, such as the user’s location, language, and device (computer or phone). For example, if a user from Barcelona searches for “bike repair shops”, she will get different results than users from Hong Kong who do the same query.
A page may be reported in Search Console as being indexed, but not displayed in search results. This may be due to the following reasons:
- The page content is irrelevant to user queries
- The quality of the content is low
- There are meta robots directives that prevent them from being served.
- While this guide explains how Search works, we are continually working to improve our algorithms. To stay up to date on all these changes, follow the Google Search Center blog.
