Search has undergone significant evolution over the years, driven by advances in technology and changes in user behavior. This interesting topic came to our attention from 9to5Google in their article, “Report: Google making Search more ‘visual, snackable, personal, and human’”.
Traditional search engines used keyword matching to retrieve relevant results. With advancements in natural language processing and machine learning, however, search engines have become better at understanding the meaning behind queries and web content. This has led to more accurate and context-aware search results.
With the proliferation of smartphones and tablets, search has shifted to a mobile-centric approach. Mobile search takes into account factors like device compatibility, location-based results, and voice search. Mobile-first indexing has also become a priority, ensuring that websites optimized for mobile devices rank well in search results.
Search has become more intelligent, personalized, and diverse, leveraging technologies to deliver faster and more accurate results across a wide range of platforms and devices. Making the content findable is important to knowledge management.
