And I think MSN's new search can't beat Google because Google has worked "at it" for 7 years and now this new MSNbot comes along and thinks it can beat Google AFAIK , MSNbot has only been "at it" for about 1 year or so.
So any search engine's can beat Google but they need time , as Google keeps rising up and 1 of the most advantage Google has is the time, 7 years...
I'm not meaning in Traffic or richness in the search engine's but in the size and quality that google has.
I think MSNbot can only beat Google if it has a different , unique , better technology and any search engine can beat Google if has a different fast web crawling technology.
(Its all IMHO)but what do you guys think?
As for size, who cares if it's 3 billion or 5 billion. As for quality, I think they have gone downhill myself.
Alltheweb did come close and I think that with more marketing to the average user, they Ścould be/can beŚ bettter than Google.
Google definitely can be beat.
Try a query for the keyword: "the" (without quotation) and it will return with 5,220,000,000 results , keeping in mind that this is only for the query "the"
Is there any pressrelease or statements from Google backing this up? On the difference between the www and the www2 server on this guery is 2 billion!
Last month, Brett said he saw, "90 billion" pages returned for some query.
Should we go & say then that Google has surpassed the 90 billion mark? Hardly.
Believe the number on their home page, if you care too. They could be lying about that one, but who knows?
Kaltix.com -> better tech, faster computation of PageRank, and bleeding edge stanford researchers in on the whole thing.
Who ever scoops them up, will have a great shot at dethroning Google, provided they do the rest of it right.
In addition, there is always Yuntis - take a gander at them, very nicly done, university research project as well, starts at the same "root research" that the Google founders leveraged.
If I had money to spare I'd buy long-term put options on Yahoo.
Watch Google IPO before Microsoft launches its embedded Windows search.
Dominance is "never for all time" or Ghengis Khan would still rule large parts of the world, or the Romans, Rockerfeller, IBM, various empires, name your preference etc ..
As with everything in life
When you reach the top, the only way is down.
Its just a question of when and how.
