Wiki-Searching

Anything Google says, you sometimes have to take with a pinch of salt.

However, in the wake of yesterdays blog about Yahoo Glue, Google has announced its SearchWiki, the new application that will let users customise their search results by re-ranking, deleting, adding, and commenting as to whatever suits their needs.

To quote the release on the Google Blog;

“With just a single click you can move the results you like to the top or add a new site. You can also write notes attached to a particular site and remove results that you don’t feel belong. These modifications will be shown to you every time you do the same search in the future. SearchWiki is available to signed-in Google users. We store your changes in your Google Account. If you are wondering if you are signed in, you can always check by noting if your username appears in the upper right-hand side of the page……The changes you make only affect your own searches.”

Cool.

  1. Swikis have been around for two years +. Social bookmarks slightly less. Neither have really taken off. The current editing functions are more of a nuisance than a revolution.
