How Google Evaluate New Search Algorithms

Few days ago Head of Search Spam Matt Cutts gives us a video that describe how Google evaluating new search algorithm which one they are going to use or which one they are going throw away.

A question was asked by James Foster of Sydney:


What metrics Google used to calculate that one function of the ranking algorithm is gives the good quality result to user than other?

Matt Cutts give the answer into the three steps, that how they evaluate search algorithms:

  1. They test the results of the algorithms and compare their results rank with the new algorithms offline, If the URLs in the result are of high quality then the last algorithms takes place. The quality of a URL is based on search quality raters that how they rate the URLs in the last cases. If the URLs are not rated, then Google could request the raters  to rate the new URLs or benchmark the previous search result to this set of new test. Based on these metrics, Google can decide to carry on to the next level.
  2. Online Tests, here Google have the sample of real live searchers and place them to the new results with the new test algorithm sets. If Google catch the high rate of clicks in new search results, then it shows that the results in this are better than older ones. Matt Cutts said that, this case is not for always but in general the more click at the specific search result page more is the quality result.
  3. After that the Search Quality Launch Committee of Google have to decide that the algorithm is going to live or not. Matt Cutts told that Google have a “very pretty system” but they need to filter some of his processes within the workflow.

5 More Killer Firefox Addons for Designers

If you compare the way you use your computer today with how you used it, let’s say 10 years ago, you will probably notice a big difference, even if you essentially still do the same tasks with it. Applications replace Software and Add-Ons replace Stand Alone Programs.

It’s obvious, we are doing a majority of our work in our browser. Even designers can utilize free photoshop alternatives which are completely web based, without ever leaving their beloved browser. Extensions and Add-Ons enhance this experience also, by turning your web browser into a real hub. Mozilla Firefox is one of the browsers which can offer you very powerful assets of tools, if it’s used right.

Whether if it’s Web Design, UX, UI, Typography or anything else; some of Mozilla’s Firefox Web Browser’s strong points lie in it’s broad selection of available add-ons. Apart from the must have add-ons as the Web Developer Toolbar by Chris Pederick , and Firebug by Joe Hewitt, there are a lot of other little tools which ca…

BlackBerry has a pleasant surprise for Android users: a partnership with Samsung will bring better Android security by coupling its BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) 12 mobility management platform with Samsung's business-centered Knox security system.

In a move that raised eyebrows, BlackBerry CEO John Chen announced at the company's enterprise event in San Francisco on Nov. 13 that it is working with Samsung, the very company that brought the Canadian smartphone maker to its knees, to deliver more secure mobility solutions for enterprises running on Android.

The partnership will provide Samsung's business clients using its Knox suite of secure work applications with an additional layer of security by having Knox run on BlackBerry's BES12 server.

"People probably didn't expect to see these two companies on the same stage, at least not willingly," says John Sims, BlackBerry's head of enterprises services. "We need to be abl…

Jessica Lange Is Definitely Done With American Horror Story But Look Who's Checking in...

Good news and bad news, American Horror Story fans.

Queen Jessica Lange confirmed at tonight's PaleyFest panel that she will not return for American Horror Story: Hotel.

"Yes, I'm done," she told the audience, "We've had a great run here. I have absolutely loved doing these four characters that I've had the opportunity to play. In all the madness, I've loved the writers, my actors, Ryan and the whole, I mean, insanity of it, shooting here, shooting in new orleans, the stories, everything."

While that is definitely not music to our ears, the panel did offer up a few happier Hotel tidbits, like the fact that White Collar star Matt Bomer will be joining the show for the season, along with 30 Rock star Cheyenne Jackson. Both Bomer and Jackson are pretty familiar with Ryan Murphy and co, having both guest starred on Glee. Bomer also appeared in American Horror Story: Freak Show as a prostitute who was brutally murdered by Dandy (Finn Witrock).
