Das „don’t be evil“-Bookmarklet

Ein Bookmarklet, das Google-Suchergebnisse mit Googles eigenem Algorithmus verbessert.

When you search for „cooking“ today, Google decides that renowned chef Jamie Oliver is a relevant social result. That makes sense. But rather than linking to Jamie’s Twitter profile, which is updated daily, Google links to his Google+ profile, which was last updated nearly two months ago. Is Google’s relevance algorithm simply misguided?

No. If you search Google for Jamie Oliver directly, his Twitter profile is the first social result that appears. His abandoned Google+ profile doesn’t even appear on the first page of results. When Google’s engineers are allowed to focus purely on relevancy, they get it right.

Das Bookmarklet wurde von Programmierern der Netzwerke Facebook, Twitter und MySpace erstellt.
