Google Executes 100 Billion Search Queries Per Month
Google didn’t invent search, but in many ways the tech giant has perfected it. When other search engines labored on how to deliver results in a fancy way, Google kept it simple and relevant. That very skeletal, yet effective approach has helped Google become the world’s most popular search engines and one of the world’s biggest companies by Market Cap.
Today Google executes over 100 billion searches every month and crawls over 20 billion web pages every day. Now the search engine giant is looking to redefine search in another way.
The folks over at Google believe that the future of search will be context based and no so much query based as it is today. When asked about the future of search, Google gives a rather cryptic answer: “Everyone who asks that question, knows the answer deep inside their heart. They’ve actually dreamt the search engine of the future already.” The search giant is also quick to highlight the challenges of taking search from where it is now, into the context-based realm that it thinks will dominate the future.
According to Google, the biggest hurdles will be speech and language recognition. As one spokesperson puts it: “If we are going to build the search of the future, we will have to solve difficult technology issues like speech recognition and natural language.”
If anyone can help shape the future of search, it’s Google. As internet and web users we can only hope it sticks to its mantra of ‘not being evil’.
