Google is more than just a website. For some, the little search engine that could has redefined the way we look for things in the world wide web. For this top grossing mega-company, it's no surprise they need to keep growing and improving in order to stay on top. Google has just announced a redesign of their pages and software to make searching think more like a human. For example, when you search "kings", are you looking to know about the LA Kings or the monarchy itself?
Google employees have been hard at work and are now ready to unvail "the knowledge graph" which is designed to help you find what you need. "The web pages we [currently] return for the search 'kings,' they're all good," said Jack Menzel, director of product management at Google. "You, as a human, associate those words with their real-world meaning but, for a computer, they're just a random string of characters."
In essence, once you Google a term, there will be shortcuts to each of the different possibilities listed below and if any match your search, you can click on those to take you right to what you're really looking for. As you learned in web site design school, making your web site easy to navigate and understand is key in continuing it's success.
