Google Algorithms

You want the answer, not trillions of webpages. Algorithms are computer programs that look for clues to give you back exactly what you want.

For a typical query, there are thousands, if not millions, of webpages with helpful information. Algorithms are the computer processes and formulas that take your questions and turn them into answers. Today Google’s algorithms rely on more than 200 unique signals or “clues” that make it possible to guess what you might really be looking for. These signals include things like the terms on websites, the freshness of content, your region and PageRank.

Search Projects

There are many components to the search process and the results page, and we’re constantly updating our technologies and systems to deliver better results. Many of these changes involve exciting new innovations, such as the Knowledge Graph or Google Instant. There are other important systems that we constantly tune and refine. This list of projects provides a glimpse into the many different aspects of search.

Experiments: From Idea to Launch

A typical algorithmic change begins as an idea from one of our engineers about how to improve search. We take a data-driven approach and all proposed algorithm changes undergo extensive quality evaluation before release.

Engineers typically start by running a series of experiments, tweaking small variables and getting feedback from colleagues until they are satisfied and ready to release the experiment to a larger audience.

Search Quality Rating Guidelines

This document is a version of our Search Quality Rater Guidelines, which gives evaluators examples and guidelines for appropriate ratings. The document focuses on a type of rating task called “URL rating.” In this kind of task, the evaluator looks at a search query and a result that could be returned. They rate the relevance of the result for that query on a scale described within the document. Sounds simple, right? As you can see, there are many tricky cases to think through.
