Using Google’s Advanced Image Search Features (4:35) | Under Ten Minutes | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it

In an effort to stem teacher apprehension about letting students at the elementary level just “google” their image, Fred Koch created this screencast on the features of Google Advanced Image Search. In particular, this tutorial points to the importance of citing images, finding images which are ‘labeled for reuse’ and examining the SafeSearch options.

How a Google Search Travels Around the World [INFOGRAPHIC] - Mashable

How a Google Search Travels Around the World [INFOGRAPHIC] - Mashable | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it
Google has put together an infographic that shows the journey of a search on the site, from how a query travels 1,500 miles at nearly the speed of light to hit different data centers around the world to how it ranks its results.

 

In an infographic given to Mashable, Google likens the web to a book with millions of pages. The search engine giant has spent one million computing hours building the index, which consists of over 100 million gigabytes. When you conduct a search, Google’s algorithms kick in and the query travels hundreds of millions of miles per hour to hit different data centers and retrieve relevant results.
