Google retools Internet search engine

Google says it recently overhauled the closely guarded formula that runs its influential Internet search engine to give better answers to the increasingly complex questions posed by Web surfers.

The modifications were made as part of an update called “Hummingbird” that Google rolled out without disclosing. It’s a change that could have a major impact on traffic to other websites.

Google disclosed the existence of the new search formula at an event held in the Menlo Park garage where CEO Larry Page and fellow co-founder Sergey Brin started the company 15 years ago.

Google is describing Hummingbird as the most dramatic alteration to its search engine since it revised the way it indexes websites three years ago as part of a redesign called “Caffeine.”

    Google之前打擊文字工廠,成效如何姑且不論。如今連YouTube都變成影片工廠,搜尋要看的影片內容卻是狸貓換太子。很多電影都是片名與內容不符合,完全是搜尋結果烏賊化。鋼鐵人、復仇者聯盟、富春山居圖、新十二生肖,搜到的影片竟然全是不知名的其他電影移花接木。套用一句台語「攏系ㄍㄟˋ耶」
