Search engines for everything, right? Yes, we do that. Whatever the term or even for a website, people first open search engines (mostly Google).
It was very hard to get the relevant answer years ago. Longtime internet users know how a search engine has important, credit goes to artificial intelligence. Now we can get relevant results with the single click which was very difficult years ago.
These days I do not even go to the second and third pages, relevant results mostly appear on the first page.
How did search engines improve so much?
It is all by tracking you. Google, Bing, Yahoo and other search engines keep your data/search terms to improve the result.
This is why they request you to register.
- Improving web indexes
- Working with fast computing speed
- Collecting tons of data about what people search.
Why Google is so popular
Possible because of its most relevant search result. Advertising/promotion and first in the race do matter but Google is not number one only of these. Leave all others and just think about how Google is making network among businessmen and customers and even for normal people who just know who not know it’s important.
Google has many products and these products help a lot to make Google search most relevant. It has an advertising program for businessmen which connect all together whether small or large. By making a network it becomes so easy to find who is using their product and how they are benefiting. Tracking one about their interest and how many times they look for the information is one make it number one.
They also collect information about your location, IP, search terms, the video you watch, the product you purchase, sensor data from your device and more…
