IdeaEncore: This is a very exciting step - one that should accelerate the trend toward betting on people/organizations as expert curators creating their own collections.
Robin Good: In the overall effort to improve the quality of its search engine result pages Google is continuining to make significant improvements to its search engine.
Starting from now all users worldwide can see Knowledge Graph results showing up on top of search results as a visuable and browsable list of alternative options to explore.
Google is now officially goig after the gathering and curation of the best list, collections and guides on just about any topic.
From the official Google Blog. Read it carefully: "Finally, the best answer to your question is not always a single entity, but a list or group of connected things.
It’s quite challenging to pull these lists automatically from the web. But we’re now beginning to do just that.
So when you search for [california lighthouses], [hurricanes in 2008] or [famous female astronomers], we’ll show you a list of these things across the top of the page. And by combining our Knowledge Graph with the collective wisdom of the web, we can even provide more subjective lists like [best action movies of the 2000s] or [things to do in paris]."
Very interesting. 8/10
