A search engine retrieves information on the Internet for users. Typically a user types in key words and the search engine will display a list of links containing those terms. The search engine may list links based on algorithms designed to give priority to relevancy, or popularity, or fees paid by sites to the search engine company. Generally the methods used by search engines are proprietary and not completely known.
AltaVista was a popular early search engine in 1995, but its slow speed caused it to lose out to Google, which would retrieve information almost instantaneously based on presorted techniques. In the December 2008 Nielsen Online rankings, Google had over 62% of the search traffic on the Internet, and Yahoo! is a distant second. Google, Yahoo and AOL all showed good year-on-year growth, with Microsoft's MSN/Live Search being the biggest loser. Other new search engines have been developed as well, such as Microsoft's Bing (the alternative to MSN/Live Search), and another web site called Duck Duck Go. Each search engines aims to compete against the more commonly used information retrieval sites, and in doing so, they each typically have their own unique driver or capability that others do not offer.
Quotes on Police State Search Engine Surveillance
- "The progress of science in furnishing the government with means of espionage is not likely to stop with wire tapping. Ways may some day be developed by which the government, without removing papers from secret drawers, can reproduce them in court, and by which it will be enabled to expose to a jury the most intimate occurrences of the home. Advances in the psychic and related sciences may bring means of exploring unexpressed beliefs, thoughts and emotions. 'That places the liberty of every man in the hands of every petty officer' was said by James Otis of much lesser intrusions than these. 1 To Lord Camden a far slighter intrusion seemed 'subversive of all the comforts of society.' Can it be that the Constitution affords no protection against such invasions of individual security?"
