Google Inc (GOOG) Launches Cool New Personal Search Feature

Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) got its name from Search, and it was living a pretty good life like that for most of the last 15 years. Sure, there have been other comers, and some still exist to try to grab market share like Bing by Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT). But when people think about Web searching, they think of Google because it is a verb now.  It’s kind of like Xerox, instead of “copy.”

Google Inc (GOOG)But one thing that has been missing from Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) has been the ability to look inside and help users find what they are looking for within Google’s own services, much less organizing them or having easy keywords to execute a search result. Then, Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) came long and established Graph Search, which allows Facebook users to search for information within Facebook that are relevant.

If you want a recommendation for  good restaurant in Houston, you might be more likely to check with your friends and their friends on Facebook by executing a Graph Search. Or if you want to find the best photos of butterflies on Facebook, you may not go to Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Search for that.

Well, at least you didn’t. Now you might.  Google may be taking steps to finally be more personally and individually relevant in search results for Google users, as the company announced this week the launch of a personalize photo search feature that allows Google+ customers to search through their photos for particular subjects or based on a timeframe. For example you could do a search of your photos on Google+ for “flowers,” or “my photos from last week.” The search algorithm still has some issues with certain searches like a particular month or certain objects, but it is at least a start to getting users organized with their photos, especially as photo libraries continue to grow and it gets harder and harder to categorize photos in a meaningful way to be easily found.

Let us know your thoughts about this new Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Search feature and your expectations for it down the road, in our comments section below.
