This Week at Neatorama

Posted in Twitter with tags , , , on April 23, 2011 by gadler

The servers at Amazon had some technical problems this week that affected a lot of sites, most notably reddit. Neatorama always welcomes poor lost internet surfers in when their favorite networking site is down. It’s the least we can do! If you weren’t with us all this week, here are our exclusive articles you might want to catch up on.

Jill Harness brought us The History of The High Five in honor of National High Five Day on Thursday.

And she also found us 10 Things You Didn’t Know About IKEA.

From Uncle John’s Bathroom reader, we learned about the movie Robot Monster: The Ultimate Golden Turkey. The full movie is also embedded in the article.

How to Cater a Roman Orgy is a classic article from The Annals of Improbable Research.

Mental_floss magazine gave us How an Island Full of Landmines Led to a Thriving Penguin Population.

Mal and Chad’s Fill in the Bubble Frenzy came around on Wednesday. The winning entry is from Alan: “Be careful; someone started a flame war between mac and pc users and it’s a long way down.” However, Alan did not select a t-shirt.

In the What Is It? game this week, ladybuggs was the first of many with the correct answer. This is a National Cash Register Stamping Phone, used in bigger department stores. It was for clerks to get approval from “credit specialists” in the back room for customers to charge their purchases. Read more about them here. Ladybuggs wins a t-shirt from the NeatoShop! The funniest answer came from next2exits, who declared that this is a Wisconsin voter polling station. The handset allows the governor to call you and tell you who to vote for. But next2exits didn’t select a shirt.

For Now, Twitter Shares Count More Than 1′s in Google Search Ranking [NetworkEffect]

Posted in search engines, social media with tags , , , , , , on March 30, 2011 by gadler

Here’s a funny thing about Google’s new +1 tool, which lets users vote up search results. At launch, Google is keeping recommendations from its new +1 voting tool out of its ranking algorithm, even though it does consider shares on services like Twitter as a signal in its core search results.

Plus-one-ing (or however you write that!) a link doesn’t make it appear higher in search results, yet. The search result shows up in the same order it would have, annotated with information about people who have +1′ed it.

After seeing lots of confusion about this, we followed up with a Google spokeswoman this morning to talk through exactly how this works.

Eventually, the plan is to consider +1 votes as one of many signals in Google rankings, she said. But right now, while +1 activity is just getting started, Google is excluding it from its ranking algorithm. In part that’s because early +1 users could warp search results before there’s enough data.

Currently, Google does use Twitter shares to help rank core search results. That was part of its big social search launch in February.

So for the moment, sharing a link on Twitter counts for more in the Google search algorithm than +1′ing it on Google.

Though Google may not re-rank yet based on +1, people who sign up to participate in the trial will start seeing +1′s from their friends and the rest of +1 testers immediately.

So as not to crowd the page, if a link has been +1′ed more times than it has been shared on Twitter, the +1′s will show up, the spokeswoman said. If there have been more Twitter shares than +1′s, those will show up.

Google does not yet count public Facebook “likes” as a social search signal, though it plans to, Director of Product Management Mike Cassidy told NetworkEffect earlier this month. At the time, Cassidy maintained that the omission of Facebook data wasn’t due to tension between Google and Facebook over personal data sharing. Rather, he said, it was a “technical issue” that would be resolved soon.Here’s a funny thing about Google’s new +1 tool, which lets users vote up search results.
