Lots of people are saying "I don't get the google thread"

Ok, so here's something.


A traditional search engine takes words you search for and tries to link to pages that contain those words or where people looking for those words go to those pages, or whatever. It's like you ask a librarian "I need to know about the American civil war" and she shows you a bunch of books.


Google has something called "one box"

This is where google tries to give you information up front directly. It's like if you asked a librarian "I need to know the years of the civil war" and instead she said "oh, 1861 to 1865. Also, here are some books that will tell you that"

These are examples of where google detects what you're searching for, and in addition to just sending you links to pages that talk about this stuff, Google gives you information directly. For example, in the poison control example, Google decided that someone looking for poison control - seconds could matter. So if you search for poison control, it recognizes you might really need the info, so instead of just linking to poisoncontrol.org and letting you search the site for the answer, it quickly shows you the number.

This is google being "smart" because it tries to give you info ASAP if it's sure it knows what you want (or highly confident). If you say "What is 100 pesos worth in dollars" isn't useful if you just see the conversion? That means Google knows enough about what you asked to answer the question for you. Not to just send you to a page where you'd have to do more clicking.
