How Google Hummingbird Changed the Future of Search

How Google Hummingbird Changed the Future of Search | Web 3.0 - The New Social Web | Scoop.it

The Hummingbird update was the most ambitious adjustment of Google’s search algorithm since 2001. In today’s post, we’re going to look at what Google Hummingbird is, what it means for SEO, and what the future of Google’s quest to become the “Star Trek” computer could hold.

 

So, if semantic search is the quest to provide relevant results based on user intent and context, then the semantic web must be all sites doing something like this, right? Wrong. Although similar in name, semantic search and the semantic web are vastly different.

Googazon: The Web 3.0

Googazon: The Web 3.0 | Web 3.0 - The New Social Web | Scoop.it

The Web 2.0 is all about the big providers: Google, Amazon, Facebook, Ebay, Paypal. They gift us with search and services, they make available products, they enable us to get in touch with our friends. And while they face competition, they operate for their benefit not ours.


They own our identities -- the credentials we use to pay for goods and services. Only Facebook provides a platform that enables user extensions, and only within strict limitations. The big providers give us the services they want and that they approve of.


Why can't you download your entire Kindle library from Amazon with a single button? Google abandoned Google Reader -- what service that we have come to depend on will they abandon next? Google Voice? Where will that leave people who have grown dependent on that service?


What we need for the Web 3.0 is Googazon. A kind of Wikipedia of goods and services. A Google, Amazon, Facebook, Ebay, Paypal, and more that belongs to us.

The Future Of Web 2.0 Websites (Possibly Web 3.0)

The Future Of Web 2.0 Websites (Possibly Web 3.0) | Web 3.0 - The New Social Web | Scoop.it
Web 2.0 is the terminology assigned to define websites that have been refurbished from an earlier version of the internet.

 

Since most Web 2.0 features are free, websites such as Facebook, Wikipedia, etc. have developed remarkably fast and, as these sites grow, more innovative features are being added using new technologies. In fact, Web 2.0 will continue to grow in the future. 


The simultaneous growth of these new trends is outside the scope of Web 2.0’s definition and this is where the next generation of the internet will begin. The third generation of the internet – the Web 3.0 – will completely alter social networking.

 

‘Web 3.0’ is a network of information that can be routed both directly or indirectly using computers and includes television quality video, three dimensional reproductions of images, enhanced reality, man-made semantic barometers, and the all-encompassing sensors – wireless and broadband.

Liveti Liiveti's curator insight, March 14, 2013 10:30 PM

With the evergrowing usage of social networking and video sharing mediums by contemporary society, it was inevitable that such an idea as Web 3.0 would be brought up. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. have some form of impact on everyone's daily lives. I myself constantly check my Facebook news feed, sadly even once every 5 minutes. This article states that the idea of Web 3.0 'will completely alter social networking', this is something that I will anxiously await to see. How will the general public react to such alterations? Will it be too much of a jump?

 

Facebook changes, such as the conversion from profile views to timelines (http://mashable.com/2012/02/07/dislike-facebook-timeline/) and the introduction of Graph Search (http://maximizesocialmedia.com/social-media-agencygraph-it-facebooks-graph-search-the-future-of-social-media), have been met with some very negative reviews. Many have panned these changes as they have been so accustomed to previous versions.

 

Web 3.0 will completely alter social networking, but is that a good thing?

 

 

Adam Woodbridge's curator insight, March 27, 2014 2:55 AM

As computers and software progress, so does the internet. Millions of people use the internet everyday and it has to be improved constantly. Web 3.0 is the next level of internet which will be a greater tool than Web 2.0 is at gathering and producing information, and connecting people. 

Derek Phillips's curator insight, March 28, 2014 6:44 AM

Due to the web rapidly grows in both users and content, it has, for many people, become a part of everyday life, whether it be in the workplace or for personal use. As a result of this, it is essential to improve the capability and resources available publicly through the web. This is being done within Web 3.0.

Three Reasons the Web Is Morphing Into Web 3.0

Three Reasons the Web Is Morphing Into Web 3.0 | Web 3.0 - The New Social Web | Scoop.it
When we look back at the evolution of the web, what three factors will contribute to the birth of the next level of interactive experiences? Will we even be able to pin it on any three factors?

In my opinion, three interactive elements are driving the evolution of how consumers interact with brands online:

- Video
- Social media
- Mobile

According to Wikipedia, "A Web 2.0 site allows users to interact and collaborate with each other in a social media dialogue as creators (prosumers) of user-generated content in a virtual community, in contrast to websites where users (consumers) are limited to the passive viewing of content that was created for them.

I think we're witnessing the beginning of Web 3.0 because video, social media, and mobile are contributing to a radical change in content consumption. Content is no longer limited to a site but rather is free to roam about the web. Consumers can morph content delivery by distributing a piece of content they like across their social networks in a matter of seconds. Second, consumers are no longer limited to one device to consume content, or even one location-they can consume at will in different formats in different places.

Imagining Web 3.0 [Book]

Imagining Web 3.0 [Book] | Web 3.0 - The New Social Web | Scoop.it

"My book, Imagining Web 3.0, attempts to develop a prescient theory of what the next stage of the web (web 3.0) will look like. Web 3.0 has also been the called the semantic web because the software that will allow the concept of a web 3.0 to come to fruition will have the power to learn, intuit and decide. This version of the web derives its “wisdom” from software that learns by looking at online content, analyses the popularity of that content and has the ability to draw conclusions.


 


In other words, instead of users refining information and opinion online, intelligent software would have the ability to do so.


 


Web 3.0 has the potential to change the entire process by bringing machines closer to users and producers which would result in more dynamic, interactive and efficient creation of content online as well as the management of that content".

The Evolving Web: Mapping the World's Data

The Evolving Web: Mapping the World's Data | Web 3.0 - The New Social Web | Scoop.it

 

Web 2.0 has been largely about social sharing, collaboration and user-generated content -- contributing to a more detailed web of information. But much of the information presented throughout the Web until recently has tended to be isolated content lacking relevant and dynamic context about how entities -- including people, objects, interests, locations, events or decisions -- are connected.

 

As we move towards Web 3.0 and the Semantic Web -- characterized by related, contextualized and personalized data -- there's a growing push for more robust context and relationship mapping.

 

Several companies, from search engines to social networks, have already begun mapping and graphing the way their customers use, interact with and understand data.

Welcome to Web 3.0: ‘The Integrated Web’ (Not ‘The Semantic Web’)

Welcome to Web 3.0: ‘The Integrated Web’ (Not ‘The Semantic Web’) | Web 3.0 - The New Social Web | Scoop.it

"Web 3.0 is knocking, and you will never guess who is opening the door: workflow software".

 

Many are pushing for this thing called “The Semantic Web” where an app will be able to understand user interaction in such a way that it will not only return directly relevant results (for example, a search for “showtimes 84003” returning what time movies are playing at the Cinemark in American Fork, Utah) but also indirectly relevant results such as places for dinner that are nearby because you are probably going on a date, or gas stations en route because the app knows your car is out of gas.

 

These concepts are exciting, innovative, and forward thinking, but there is a critical evolutionary step missing between the “The Social Web” and “The Semantic Web”: being able to take one object, and pass it through multiple services to accomplish a task.

Semantic & Graph-Based Search: The Future Face Of Search

Semantic & Graph-Based Search: The Future Face Of Search | Web 3.0 - The New Social Web | Scoop.it

In a June 2010 Semantic Web Meetup in San Diego, Peter Mika of Yahoo!’s research division gave a presentation entitled, “The future face of Search is Semantic for Facebook, Google and Yahoo!” As the title suggests, the presentation focused on the ever-growing use of semantic markup as a means for helping computers parse and understand content.

 

The talk focused on what was then the current state of the Semantic Web, as well as upcoming formats/technologies in development and the research being done in the field of semantic search.

 

The idea that the Semantic Web would be central to search within just a few years was met with some skepticism at the time — back then, all most folks were tracking was the adoption of Semantic Web technologies and semantic search using primarily RDFa, embedded metadata, or semantic markup.

The semantic web: a key to smarter natural language interfaces

The semantic web: a key to smarter natural language interfaces | Web 3.0 - The New Social Web | Scoop.it

Natural language user interfaces show great promise for a variety of situations, but Nuance Communications CTO Vlad Sejnoha sees a need for standard formats if new entrants aren’t to be blocked as data sources.

 

The semantic web, a term coined by Tim Berners-Lee, is an initiative being developed under the auspices of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). It aims, through the use of standardized tags and formats, to build a framework where content on the web has machine-understandable meaning, rather than simply being searchable by keyword.

 

Asked by GigaOM Research analyst George Gilbert how best to tap a variety of information repositories without having to “hardwire” the language interface into each one separately, Sejnoha said the answer lies in an open approach.

Semantic Web and Link Building without Links > The Future for SEO? | Web 3.0 - The New Social Web | Scoop.it

"Rand’s recent WBF about co occurrence was a real wake up call for those still transfixed with link building practices of old. While anchor text based links may still have some effect there is little arguing the fact that the factor’s importance is dwindling. In its place are things like social signals, link age and most importantly a growing reliance on relevancy and how that is deciphered.

 

For those that haven’t read it yet, I wrote a piece a few weeks ago about what I felt recent Google penalties are really trying to solve. My view is that Google is really trying to clear up the link graph and with it valueless links so that it can clearly understand relevance and associations again".

Big Data + Semantic Web: Love At First Terabyte? | Web 3.0 - The New Social Web | Scoop.it
The "Web of Data" remains an intriguing concept rather than the next big thing in digital information. But big data could help change that.

 

The term "Semantic Web" -- also known as the Linked Data Web, Web of Data, or Web 3.0 -- has been around for more than a decade. Its origins trace back to a 2001 Scientific American article by Tim Berners-Lee, better known as the inventor of the World Wide Web, and co-authors James Hendler and Ora Lassila.

 

The piece projected a futuristic Web where a common framework allows applications to share and reuse data.

Web 3.0: The Mobile Era

From The Original Article: "One era of the Web bleeds into another. Web 1.0 was defined by the rise of static websites and the ubiquity of browsers. Web 2.0 incorporated the infrastructure of 1.0 and added a social layer to it, giving the Web a new backbone.

 

One of the icons of Web 2.0, Digg, was sold to Betaworks yesterday and will be integrated into its News.me platform. This is the inflection point at which we see the definite transition of the Web 2.0 world to Web 3.0: The Mobile Era.

 

The Mobile Era has been built on the infrastructure of websites created in Web 1.0, and on the social layer of Web 2.0. If we are to describe The Age of Mobile with the Web 3.0 moniker, it's natural that all that has come before will be incorporated into it.

 

The Mobile Era incorporates its own bits into the aggregate, offering up dynamic new ways of computing (smartphones and tablets) where users interface not just through the Web and a browser, but also through applications available on these platforms that were built upon the principles of earlier eras of the Web.

 

Each era of the Web does not exist within its own bubble but builds upon the era that came before".
