evolution of search engines: past, present, future
Origin and Evolution
The history and evolution of search engines can be divided into distinct periods. The first period begins from the development of Archie, which was a search engine program launched in 1990 by a group of university students. The Archie program worked by scanning files on scattered servers connected to the Internet and retrieving them for users using FTP protocol. A few years later, Veronica and Jughead search engines were launched that could search and retrieve documents using the Gopher protocol. An important breakthrough took place with the launch of the first robot search tool, the Wanderer. This was the precursor to the modern day web crawlers and worked by scanning the World Wide Web and indexing data from servers as well as ULS on a database. However, it was quite inefficient and required a lot of….

This paper discusses the web search engines market, and will aim to analyze the main players in this industry, how they compete and what their market share is. The paper will also briefly look into the history of web search engines and will investigate some of the public policies that affect the firms that operate in this industry.
The web search engines appeared in the early 1990s, as the Internet began to grow and more and more pages, on different topics, became available for the users. Up to 1993, however, there was no web search engine in existence, most of the information on the Internet was stocked in catalogues, but there was no electronic indexing of these catalogues and these could only be consulted manually.….

I was shocked to watch the TED talk by Eli Pariser on “filter bubbles.” I did not know that two people could search for the same term and receive completely different results. After watching this video, I will become more aware of how the information on the Internet is being filtered for me by digital gatekeeprs, algorithms that determine what I can and cannot see. Pariser (2011) calls them the “invisible algorithmic filters” that are in social media and on search engines. I appreciate that Pariser (2011) uses the TED forum to call directly upon those who are in control of these algorithms, asking them to take greater responsibility. The Internet is supposed to represent the ultimate freedom of information. Filter bubbles contradict that ideal. Coders and the senior managers of all technology companies do have a responsibility to give back the power of information to the people. The only potentially….
Written Assignment: Case study1. Why is important that businesses maintain a high level of visibility on SEPs?Maintaining high visibility on SEPs increases a businesss visibility on search engines, translating to increased website traffic. With high visibility, more people will see the businesss content in search results and interact with the content by visiting the business website. A company that maintains high visibility on SEPs indicates that the business is credible, and more people will trust the business (Schulthei & Lewandowski, 2021). When a business appears on the first page of SEPs, visitors will subconsciously trust the business, assuming the business must be doing something right to have such a high ranking. Visitors are more likely to make a purchase or recommend the company to others, increasing the businesss organic traffic. Domain authority is another benefit the business will get from high visibility on SEPs. Having a high domain authority leads….

Its success might be called an 'anti-marketing' campaign given that it was done without careful marketing segmentation -- it was marketed to all consumers, with a unified image. Although it does not fit the conventional definitions of either service or product design, and in many ways seems to exist in undefined virtual space, it still possesses a loyal core of users.
The goal of every branding campaign, Taylor suggests, is to create a clear brand image. The simpler the object, like a soda, a hamburger, or a search engine, and the greater the number of competitors or substitutes, the clearer a product's image must be in the mind of the consumer. Clutter and added amenities do not necessarily add to the perceived, unique value of the product. Make sure that the product delivers on its promises. Because Google has done all of these things, it is hard to imagine a….
The Google Scholar search engine appears more comprehensive in scope relative to ProQuest as well. This is attributable to the greater number of courses Google indexes from an academic standpoint to gain this data. While ProQuest does not have as much content accessible using Boolean search parameters as Google Scholar, of the documents it indexes, a higher percentage of them are accessible. There is also a greater level of flexibility in how citations are downloaded on ProQuest relative to Google Scholar. Support for APA, AMA, Turabian, and Harvard formats is available on ProQuest for example and not available on Google Scholar. This can be a significant time saving feature when larger papers are being researched.
When a Boolean search was completed using the Google U.S. Government Search, 58,200 documents were found, and like Google Scholar, when the exact search term "Tenured faculty & Post-tenure review models" was used, no matches….
search I intended to use various keyword searches in order to find the relevant literature regarding how lifestyle modification compared to no modification in liver transplant patients, with a view to the impact on quality of life over 4 months post-operation. I was utilizing an intervention PICO and the reviews that I deemed relevant were systematic, reviews with meta-analysis of randomized control trials, case control studies, qualitative studies, and articles in which expert opinion was pronounced. Thus the purpose of these searches was to find literature which represented the extent of academic work on the subject in recent years.
The purpose of this review was to discover primary sources in various databases such as Medline, Cinahl, Embase, PsychINFO, and PubMed. Secondary sources were also targeted using Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials.
Strengths and Weaknesses
Medline was utilized primarily because it is a well-known database,….
Key word searches included various phrases such as "post liver transplant patient," "post-operative liver transplant patient," "change in diet," "nutrient levels," "quality of life," and any combination of the aforementioned among other similarly worded combinations of key words. Key words were culled from various commonalities among primary reading at the beginning of this research.
The PICO searches were generated using combinations of "post liver transplant patient" and "life style modification" and "quality of life" and various combinations with results being works such as Masala et al. (2012) study entitled "Quality of life and physical activity in liver transplantation patients: results of a case-control study in Italy." This article was helpful in pointing the way to other articles as it also contained key words that would later be used to generate further results in the search engines and databases mentioned above.
Google Cluster Architecture
"Web Search for a Planet: The Google Cluster Architecture," IEEE Micro, Mar-Apr., 2003, 22-28.
The central idea of this IEEE Micro article is that Google has designed a search engine which is energy efficient, reliable, and so cost effective that it allows them to provide superior service. The article begins by pointing out that every request to a search engine requires complex computations. When Google gets a request, it reads hundreds of megabytes of data and uses tens of billions of CPU cycles. With thousands of such requests happening every second, Google's infrastructure compares in size to a supercomputer installation! Energy efficiency and price-performance ratio are the most important factors to its design. Easy parallelism is the main priority so that different queries can run on different processors (the overall index is partitioned so that a single query can use multiple processors).
Google's architecture provides reliability by using many commodity….
This literature review looks at the question of SEO return characteristics of large and small firms from several different perspectives. The goal is to determine whether small firms are more effected by the equity offering than larger firms. This section examines the overall evidence for performance issues (including financial anomalies and manager performance) and whether research indicates evidence for a rational or behavioral explanation.
A firm's success in a seasoned equity or initial public offering is determined by many factors that are seemingly disconnected, but which the research shows are interdependent. Among these are the anomalies that cannot adequately be described by rational theories of pricing. As an example, Li (2012) suggests that the cyclical nature of the economy has a far greater effect on certain types of offerings (IPOs and SEOs among them) than was previously thought. Again, the relatively unpredictable nature of firms and investors can cause problems….

Electronic and Hybrid Engines Be Used Instead of the Petrol Engines
Hybrid engines and electric and other forms of fuel are being tried the world over on account of multiple problems. It is not only for vehicles but also for the industries that use fossil fuels and chemicals for manufacture. The primary problem is the pollution of the air, water and the entire planet on account of fossil fuel use. Not all fossil fuel forms are harmful. For example CNG, compressed natural gas is less harmful. The use of fossil fuel has deadly repercussions on human, animal and plant health. In other words all life on the planet can be at jeopardy. The shocking truth is revealed as follows: John Vidal of the Guardian reported that millions die in Asia on account of vehicle pollution. According to the report he quoted, issued by a consortium of universities working in conjunction….
Advances in jet engine design [...] new jet engine types or theoretical designs, including specifications, theory of operation, and how they will benefit modern aviation. Research on new technologies proliferates in the jet engine arena. There are many companies and government agencies attempting to advance jet engine design and performance, including engines that can think for themselves, engines which can fly at seven times the speed of sound, and advanced software to help create these new designs.
ADVANCES IN JET ENGINE DESIGN
Scientists and researchers are continually searching for new technologies for the future, and jet engine design is no exception to this search. New jet engine technologies are in various stages of research and design today, and modern aviation can look forward to many innovations that will move people and freight farther, faster, and with less jet noise in the future. NASA and the Air Force are two governmental agencies….
The aircraft collided with power lines. The flight was being operated without a flight plan being filed under the required rules. Visual conditions prevailed at the time of the accident and due to the accident; the commercial pilot and passenger received fatal injuries. The helicopter was destroyed. The flight had started at 1835 and according to the operator the pilot had a standard pattern of usage which included delivery of cargo to a facility and the carriage of a passenger was not authorized. A witness on the ground said that the helicopter was flying at a low altitude in a terrain of a pasture with many trees. This was about 4 nautical miles south of the airport from where the pilot took off. Then the witness saw the helicopter run directly at the power lines that crossed the valley and the witness ran to avoid what he though was….

There are several people who might fall into the class of people who create intellectual property. First, there are creatives, for example writers, visual artists, or even project managers such as directors or the team who write code for software. All of these are actively involved in the creative process. When they are doing as employees or contractors of a company, then typically the rights flow to the company, as the financier of the project. But someone creating on their own should have full right to distribute as they please, whether or not this involves active digital rights management. There are examples of star acts that have sought to exert greater control over their work, using digital distribution models to bypass record companies. This is an example of a content creator exerting their natural control over how they distribute and control their work (Clemons, Gu,….
Ethics and Promoting Your Site
Search Engine Optimization -- SEO techniques is the methodology of making a website and its content more relevant for search engines and eventually for the user community who search them through 'keywords' and 'phrases' for getting appropriate results. The entire process includes making strategies to enhance web pages so that they are able to gain a higher ranking in actual search engine results. The ideal scenario is the particular enterprise's website to get listed on the first page of search engine results when the targeted keywords and phrases are searched and for this the enterprise's website needs to be optimised for these terms. (Majchrzak, 2008)
Unethical marketing techniques used in e-business:
An ongoing debate often encountered is what is "unfair" or "unethical" in promoting website for e-business. Essentially the objective of SEO is to manipulate the search engines into ranking the particular site higher. However the methods….
Social Perceptions and Bias
Within any organization there is a dual cognitive and emotional role in making decisions. In the 21st century global environment, this role is accentuated and allows far less time than ever before. Typically, decision making is the result of stimuli, then choosing from alternatives based on past and current knowledge, then making a final choice of an action or group of action. One way of looking at the decision making process is that it is ingrained within the human psychological perspective, which makes it both unique and complex for the individual or organization involved. esearchers Seo and Barrett (2007) present a theory that contrary to the popular belief that emotions (feelings) are dysfunctional in decision making, in fact, research shows that individuals who are able to identify and distinguish among feelings have a greater chance of making successful and discreet decisions by looking critically at their own….
