tech news bangLadesh: Tech news has been abuzz with the news that Google has removed all links to the word ‘Android’ in all the search results.
This news comes just a week after the world’s most popular search engine was caught up in an investigation by a Danish court that found Google violated the law.
This has reignited a debate about whether Google is being too lenient on developers and the way it treats its users.
We asked Google’s VP of product engineering, Matt Mullenweg, if the move is related to the investigation.
“No, this is an entirely separate investigation,” Mullenheg told Ars.
“We’re not in a position to comment on it.”
Mullenwege said Google removed the link to ‘Android’, a keyword that appears in its search results, because Google believes Google’s search algorithm doesn’t work well for people searching for ‘Android’.
Google doesn’t allow users to search for a specific word or phrase without using the keyword in the search query, and the word was not included in the keyword-counting algorithm that determines how many results Google gets for the search term.
Google said it removed the links because the algorithm doesn ‘not find the relevant search terms for these searches’.
But Mullen said Google was not satisfied with the algorithm.
“We think it’s very clear that Google doesn´t think there’s a market for the word Android, so we want to make sure that we’re not pushing the wrong buttons with this,” he said.
“In fact, we want you to make your own search queries as much as you can.”
Mullah said the word had been removed because Google did not think it was the best way to get people to use the platform.
“It’s a really good thing for developers to see, because we’ve got so many amazing developers who are building apps on top of Android,” he explained.
“It really helps that we’ve been able to make a product that’s really great at delivering that experience, and people who want to build apps on Google’s platform really enjoy that experience.”
Mulla said Google would be continuing to update the Google Search app with the new Google Search Terms, which will include more keywords and more context about Google products and services.
He also said Google will be continuing work to fix a bug that could make it hard for people to find what they are looking for in search results if they had previously searched for a word that was not in the first three results of the search.
The bug, which was discovered in April, affects a large number of users.
Muller said Google has fixed the bug, but it has not yet been rolled out across the rest of the Google search platform.
Mulla also said the search engine would be improving its error reporting, so that when people have problems searching, Google can help them by adding additional information.
“The problem with our errors is that they are not always obvious, and sometimes they are hidden,” Mullin said.
“One of the things that we are going to be doing is giving you additional information about the error, and we’ll be adding it to the errors section of the app.”
Mahnunweg also said that Google is working on a “major redesign” of its search engine that will bring users closer to the search experience.
Mullah also said he was optimistic about Google’s future as an app developer.
“Google has been an amazing platform,” he told Ars in an interview.
“There are so many opportunities for developers that Google offers, and there’s so much more that we can do.”
I think it would be very difficult to build a new product with Google in place.
