PigeonRankâ„¢, The technology behind Google’s Great Success

0

The following top secret technology description has been sourced directly from the Google [ http://www.google.com/technology/pigeonrank.html
].

The technology behind Google’s great results 

As a Google user, you’re familiar with the speed and accuracy of a Google search. How exactly does Google manage to find the right results for every query as quickly
as it does? The heart of Google’s search technology is PigeonRankâ„¢, a system for ranking web pages developed by Google founders
Larry Page and Sergey Brin at Stanford
University.

Pigeon Rank.

Building upon the breakthrough work of B. F.
Skinner
, Page and Brin reasoned that low cost pigeon clusters (PCs) could be used to compute the relative value of web pages faster than human editors or machine-based
algorithms. And while Google has dozens of engineers working to improve every aspect of our service on a daily basis, PigeonRank continues to provide the basis for all
of our web search tools.

Why Google’s patented PigeonRankâ„¢ works so well

PigeonRank’s success relies primarily on the superior trainability of the domestic
pigeon (Columba livia) and its unique capacity to recognize objects regardless of spatial
orientation
. The common gray pigeon can easily distinguish among items displaying only the minutest differences, an ability that enables it to select relevant web
sites from among thousands of similar pages.

Power of Gmail for your own Domain name

10

Gmail is releasing a new service for website owners that would allow them to use their own domain names instead of gmail.com.

In other words Gmail will handle all the mail related stuff for your domain name. The service is currently Beta stage and it is available to limited parties only. If you think you may help Google by volunteering for the Beta test then simply go to the homepage of this new service and answer few quick questions and Google may select you for the beta test.

Here is what you’ll get after registration.

Bring Gmail to your domain.

This special beta test lets you give Gmail, Google’s webmail service, to every user at your domain. Gmail for your domain is hosted by Google, so there’s no hardware or software for you to install or maintain.

Gmail   Gmail – 2 gigabytes of storage and search tools that help your users find information fast. Instant messaging from right inside their accounts.
 
gtalk   Google Talk – Users can call or send instant messages to their contacts for free – anytime, anywhere in the world.
 
Google Calendar   Google Calendar – Users can organize their schedules and share events and calendars with others.
 
Google Control Panel   Control Panel – Easily manage user accounts, aliases, mailing lists, and chat settings.

 Have a question in mind related to this service? then just have a look at the Service FAQ page. Here you can get the answers for all common silly questions.

Now, I am just waiting for the day when Google will start the commercial web hosting service 😉

 

MSN is now hiring people to hand craft SERP in real time.

1

On the MSN jobs openings page I found something quite unusual for the Search engine industry. Before I say anything about this why don’t you have a look at the snippet from the original listings:

Hand crafted results
When all else fails, and the ranking algorithms do not pass the confidence threshold, we fall back to delivering handcrafted results. Working on a team of approximately 132 other handcrafters in 26 worldwide markets, you will receive a user query, use all the available search engines to quickly scour the web for results, pick the top 10 results for this query, and send it on to the user. Successful handcrafters can typically find top 10 results for a real-time user’s query in less than 3.8 seconds. This is an opportunity to truly connect with customers, because the queries that get routed to you are precisely the ones that the engine cannot answer well. We will have adequate staffing to allow generous coffee and bathroom breaks.
If you are an expert at using at least 3 different search engines, well versed with American English/colloquial usage, and can type at > 149 words/minute as measured by the Simia-Lico method – come join us and delight users real-time!

🙂 So now MSN wants to serve us better by employing special handcrafter to send the results in real time to the user. I guess with millions of hits a day it would be quite tough job for the MSN to server people better this way.

One thing that made me smile was job responsibility to “use all the available search engines to quickly scour the web for results” , So Now MSN knows who is the Boss and would like to steal the results form their competitors and quickly and manually serve the top results to their user. 🙂

I knew that MSN is desperate to win the great search engine war, But didn’t know that they can do the painful task to hand pick results from other search engine result pages to manually build their own results in real time.

‘Wallet365’ India’s online payment solution.

0

Well, It is not the first of its kind, Not even in India. But it is kind-of special because: It is a service by well established ‘times group‘. And guess what? Mr. Amitabh Bachchan himself launched the Wallet365.com 🙂

 After getting to the homepage of Wallet365, I was happy to find out some good options and services proposed by this Indian equivalent to PayPal. Although PaisaPay is the proposed service to Indians by eBay group and their PayPal is also available to Indian consumers and I use it more often. But the proposed options like funds withdrawal by local courier and direct transfer to band account are more tempting to me.

 

So, it was certainly impossible for me Not to test drive such a proposed service. So, I popped up new browser window and got the site opened. The layout is quite simple and in odd lemon colour, But who cares if you get a good service for nominal fee.

 

Wallet365

 

Anyways, Then I clicked on the link to sign-up page. I don’t know why they have made it mandatory to enter both home and office phone numbers(with STD codes). And more interestingly Why they only accept numerical Password (PIN number) of exactly 5 digits in length? It is kind of weird policy for an online financial service. but anyways I continued and filled the whole form just to find out that they have some silly bug in the form validation that gives a fake error even if everything is correctly filled. I tried it many times with different email ids but the form kept declining my email ids stating them to be in invalid format. Duh!!!

I cannot review it further because of that silly bug and completely bad impression. The proper testing is required for any web service and it is more important if you are starting an online financial service, The security is also important and 5 digit numerical passwords can not keep an account safe, a simple brute force attack can easily break it easily. I just wish to conclude that this is NOT what we need or can even use. Certainly it will get 3/10 on my rating system.
