Advanced Search Engine Lingo

Advanced Search Engine Lingo

Algorithm: This is a mathematical system that's used to determine which Web pages are used in search results.

Boolean Search: A Boolean search involves searching with words like AND, OR, NOT. Using these words and other similar words can help you get more specific results. For example, if you're looking for info on pop music, enter pop AND music and you'll get a list of sites that include both those words, not just one of them.

Direct Hit: This is a counting system that counts the number of times a site has been clicked on in different search engine results. The amount of clicks are then added up to determine a Web site's ranking in the search results.

Meta Search Engine: This is a search engine that looks up keywords in a bunch of other search engines and then combines the results. These engines are called metacrawlers. Besides Dogpile, another metacrawler is www.metacrawler.com.

Meta Search: A search of searches. Your keyword or phrase is searched in more than one search engine or directory and the results come from all the engines. There are several search engines that specifically do meta searches, such as Dogpile.

Spider: This is the software used by search engines. It crawls through the Web, scanning documents and then adding them to an index by going from link to link. Search engines are occasionally (and incorrectly) called spiders.

I Just looked it up and Here is what i found....: At the dawn of agriculture, about 8000 B.C., the population of the world was approximately 5 million. Over the 8,000-year period up to 1 A.D. it grew to 200 million (some estimate 300 million or even 600, suggesting how imprecise population estimates of early historical periods can be), with a growth rate of under 0.05% per year. A tremendous change occurred with the industrial revolution: whereas  it had taken all of human history until around 1800 for world population to reach one billion , the second billion was achieved in only 130 years (1930), the third billion in less than 30 years (1959), the fourth billion in 15 years (1974), and the fifth billion in only 13 years (1987). During the 20th century alone, the population in the world has grown from 1.65 billion to 6 billion. In 1970, there were roughly half as many people in the world as there are now. Because of declining growth rates, it will now take over 200 years to double again. So, There are definitely more people on earth now...huh?  Bravo
