You have been the one who create contents for the web.
You have been the one who teaches the web semantic meanings by tagging and linking information.
How much can You involve in organizing the web? The next step is You can change the order of Google search results.
Google Search started off one decade ago in 1998 with their search algorithm, and it’s been the core of their success till now. As the time grows, Google grew to be #1 search engine but has been facing a lot of challenges. Not only including Yahoo! and Live and Ask, the list of competitors is crowded with Wikia search, Cuil, Visual Search and many more. From this list, Mahalo and Wikia involve users in where they can provide feedbacks to the search results.
So what’s next from Google? An experiment to allow Google user to re-rank the search results. You can see the arrows in the screenshot below:
This is, again, only their experiment. But ain’t it interesting to follow?
My wonder is: does this feature collaborative or simply personal? How will Google absorb this feedback channel – algorithmically or mass-manually?
What do you think of this feature from Google?

I just received a question from Darren Rowse from Twitter today.
So to answer his question, I’d like to share what I’m thinking:
1. Investment in emerging markets
The reason is that emerging markets behave in a different way from those of developed countries. Theory of macro-economics or technical analysis cannot be applied without customization. I’d wish somebody would write about this topic, beside Nam Le at Cofieu
2. The career of a Financial Analyst, especially in Fund Management, Banking and Securities
…Because this is my chosen career path.
I do read Jason Vu‘s and Khoa Pham‘s blogs regularly though.
How about you? What is your answer to the question?
These alternative search engines are not just text. Visual is there to make a difference experience. Try them out:

Dear Prudential PR Representative,
First of all, please allow me to make it clear that my family and I have been using some Prudential’s products in the last few years decades and we have been happy with Prudential’s service quality so far.
I also appreciate your recent efforts to reach me and other bloggers on Yahoo! 360 platform.
However, I wonder if you would have more luck with me with some other approaches?
Some reasons why your approach is not very effective:
- Mass communication is not the way to go. Basically it’s like a job applicant who write one cover letter to multiple prospective employers without changing a single word.
- Some bloggers including me don’t expect comments just for the sake of words on the page.
- It looks like you’re just there to “take” what you can.
- It looks like you’re going after quantity rather than quality opportunities.
If you segment me a professional working in the foreign sector which I am, kindly arrange a business appointment after business hours.
If you segment me a blogger which I am, please accept my suggestion to read Darren Rowse’s 21 tips on PR campaigns on blogs.
I’m looking forward to another opportunity of collaboration.
The 3 tools include:
1. Portfolio Management
2. Market Watch
3. Listed Stock Watch
