Google SearchWiki Expands Personalised Search Results

24th Nov 2008 News, Industry News | No Comments


As discussed in one of my posts from last week – Personalised Search Rankings and SEO Success – the personalisation of search results means that now, more than ever, you need to focus on more than just your search position in the major search engines.

Now Google have launched SearchWiki. This service allows users who are logged in to their Google account to promote (move up) or remove listings from their personalised search results:

They can even add URLs themselves and notes to listings. As I write, conspiracy theorists everywhere are preparing blog posts and articles about how Google will use this data. For their part, Google state clearly that any adjustments are associated with your Google Account and will only affect your search results. So there you have it, SearchWiki will not improve your search rankings and that’s official!
