The Rise of Google: Beating Yahoo at Its Own Game




Category: History
Link: The Rise of Google: Beating Yahoo at Its Own Game
Description:: Before 1995, search engines relied on databases of textual keywords to find relevant results. Whenever a user entered a search term, search engines such as AltaVista and Lycos would compare the search term to their databases of terms. The pages that had text most similar to the search term were considered to be more relevant and were featured higher in the list of search results.

I love Google. It is so simple and effective. But what I love even more is MacRumor's own rendition Mroogle!
