Things to consider when YOU search for information

In this interesting video, Eli Pariser raises the point of how search results are tailored according to your preferences.


Is this a problem? In competitive intelligence it might be if you don’t get the search results that are most relevant for your business. Therefore it is important for business users to get the most relevant results regardless of what your preferences are as an individual. Different search engines produce different search results. One of my favorite links is where you can see the search results from both Bing and Google side by side. Also, it is important to understand the difference between a web search engine and a enterprise search engine.
