Report On The Emerging Face Of Information Search
K-Praxis has produced a huge, in-depth report on emerging search technologies and trends. If you can read the whole thing, please do. Here's just one quote:
In terms of information ranking PageRank - to quote from one of our earlier articles on K-Praxis: “Contextualized Tabbed OR Categorized Indexes and the Future of Search”, - system (to a great extent) assumes that the more linked a web page is, the greater is its value. And whatever algorithm Google uses to normalize this effect - to bring in other aspects such as keywords, relatedness of the content and so forth - because the basic system is PageRank, the results that are produced by Google tilt towards a theory where the more “networked” you are the more popular and trustworthy you are.
