'Mobile search is just broken. Everyone in this goes to Yelp and searches and each of us get the same result. That’s clearly a broken model because every one of us is going to do different things or have different favorites' [Dennis Crowley] said, highlighting that Foursquare’s focus is on personalized search, with result tailored to the user based on their previous information.

Eventually Google will understand why users are searching for information and provide them with answers they didn’t even know they needed. The education of such an omnipotent new mind will take the vast stores of Google’s database

Google’s Expanded Travel Info Revamps Marketer Landscape - eMarketer

Google’s Hotel Finder and Flight Search have fundamentally altered what travel consumers see above the fold on search engine results pages (SERPs). Travel researchers who search potential flight destinations or hotel accommodations will no longer see 10 blue links immediately below the top-of-page paid search ads… 
Google’s redistribution of search traffic renders what previously passed as “SEO” basically meaningless. Integrating all travel marketing content—not just planting SEO and pay-per-click keywords—is becoming much more important.

Search engines have long been judges of what is important; now they are also arbiters of the truth.

Danny Hillis, The Opinions Of Search Engines (via Edge.org)

Hillis makes the case that adding by semantic knowledge into search Google and others are inherently and inescapably advancing a worldview, like the editor of a magazine.

Consider me. Not only have I not liked my electrician, my plumber, my dentist, my doctor or my tax person on Facebook but I don’t even know if they have Facebook pages. I have nothing to offer to my Facebook friends in this regard.

Similarly, despite the huge number of books I read through my Kindle, I never go to like those books on Facebook, so books I love are more or less invisible on Facebook.

Facebook itself understands this challenge, but it’s hoping the promise of what search can provide will help encourage people to build the connections they may lack now.

“There are now new reasons to make these connections. We’re hoping the existence of that will encourage it.”
How The New Facebook Search Is Different & Unique From Google Search
It’s Google, the social also-ran, that knows your real secrets. It knows the things you wouldn’t ask your friends. It knows things you can’t ask your spouse. It knows the things you haven’t asked your doctor yet. It knows things that you can’t ask anyone else and that might not have been asked at all before Google existed. Google’s servers are a repository of the developed world’s darkest and most heartbreaking secrets, a vast closet lined with millions of digital skeletons that, should they escape, would spare nobody.
Why Google, Not Facebook, Knows Your Darkest Secrets - BuzzFeed Mobile (via futuristgerd)
Google says that its search engine now contains 500 million objects and knows more than 3.5 billion facts ‘and relationships between these different objects.’
'Information' To 'Knowledge Agent': Google Changes The Way It Does Search 
[L]ately when using Google search I’ve found myself nostalgic for the old days, when Google was true to its own slightly aspy self. Google used to give me a page of the right answers, fast, with no clutter. Now the results seem inspired by the Scientologist principle that what’s true is what’s true for you. And the pages don’t have the clean, sparse feel they used to. Google search results used to look like the output of a Unix utility. Now if I accidentally put the cursor in the wrong place, anything might happen.

Google +1 is Available Now: Why it Matters & Why it May Not Work
"Google search is being overrun by low-quality pseudo-spam and SEO gamed content. At some point you’ve just got to have a human hand try to solve the problem. If that hand works at Google, then the company has legal problems regarding favoritism and near monopoly power. But if that hand that edits the search results is a trusted friend of each user - that could work."
Smart… but also sounds a little evil.
