Search

Tony Karrer

This post likely will be quite a bit different because I'm convinced that most people have used different search tools enough that they are pretty comfortable with their current search behaviors. My intent here is to possibly expand the options for the average knowledge worker to be able to search a bit better than they do today. Yes, I personally use Google 95%+ for searching. But I do sometimes jump to other search engines. Search. In other words, 2007.

Steven Berlin Johnson

» Radical New Innovation at Outside.in: Search! Forgot to mention that we finally restored search to outside.in. We had a pretty lame search function in the original iteration of the site, which we decided to just kill off because it wasnt very useful (and, perhaps because it wasnt useful, no one was using it.) But we decided a few weeks ago to do a little mod of Google site search, which turns out to work very well.

Looking Back at 2007

Tony Karrer

In December 2006, I posted my challenges and predictions for 2007. Biggest challenges for 2007? I could answer this as the biggest challenges for Learning Professionals generally, and maybe I'll come back and do that, but for now, let me just write what I see as some of my bigger challenges in 2007. I found several very high quality developers at several levels in 2007. This continues to be a challenge, but I'm way ahead of where I was starting 2007.

Aha Moments in 2007

I wanted to go back and figure out what things really struck me during 2007. Authoring in eLearning 2.0 / Add-ins & Mash-ups Wow, what a great list from 2006, I'm glad I have that saved somewhere. ;) So how about in here's a random list of things from 2007: My 10 year old son edited Wikipedia - A Fourth Grader Wikipedia Update and added value.

Top Ten Subliminal Searches

Tony Karrer

As I mentioned before more than half of the traffic to my blog comes from search engines. What's sometimes fun to do is take a look at various search terms that people use to find my blog. This morning I had a really good chuckle because I saw that the search: top 10 reasons not to do your homework Put me in position number 2 on Google (at least on the servers in the US that I used). Or if there's some hidden meaning that I somehow get found for these searches.

Personal Search - and Naming Your Kids

Tony Karrer

I've recently been dealing with naming for a start-up and ran across a WSJ article - You're a Nobody Unless Your Name Googles Well. Given how hard it is to figure out business names, reading this was a little scary: So when Ms. Wilson, now 32, was pregnant with her first child, she ran every baby name she and her husband, Justin, considered through Google to make sure her baby wouldn't be born unsearchable.

2007 Traffic Stats - Hopefully a Meme

Tony Karrer

I've seen a couple of posts ( Matt Cutts , Dave Taylor ) talking about their relative web statistics for 2007. While my stats are very low in comparison to theirs, I was hoping that I could entice fellow bloggers to post some stats about their traffic in 2007. You can see that Search Engines generate more than half the traffic. I thought it might be interesting to share with each other and I'm guessing there will be a few surprises. Some thoughts / comments.

Why the Semantic Web Will Fail

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

A few of key things today: - Yahoo is forcing people to give up their Flickr identities and to join the mother ship, and - MySpace is blocking all the widgets that aren't supported by some sort of business deal with MySpace - the rumour that Google is turning off the search API And that's when I realized: The Semantic Web will never work because it depends on businesses working together, on them cooperating. Don't get too excited by the title. But I do want to share a few thoughts.
