This week, Google announced another significant development in how they will be changing the search results landscape powered by latest database driven development. The new Knowledge Graph project, rolling out to English-language Google search users over the next few days, provides more data snippets alongside its query results than the search engine currently provides. The results are based on Google’s new database of 500 million people, places, and things.
This is a major move from Google as we enter the era of the semantic web. In the last few years, we have seen Google release various developments in their algorithm as the engine looks to provide more intelligent results to the consumer. The main purpose of the semantic web is driving the evolution of the current web by enabling users to find, share, and combine information more easily.
With the growth in semantic, local and real time results, we know one thing is for sure: that Google is continuing to invest in its core search product and provide consumers with the most relevant experience to their search query faster, deeper and more engaging than ever.
