“Be Lazy” may not sound like particularly good advice but that is the advice we give to Infoaxe users! 🙂
However, there is a slightly less obvious but LARGER benefit to using Infoaxe namely Personalization for Search. With Infoaxe searching your personal Web, you can now be lazy when you query Google/Yahoo/Live. (In the remainder of this post, when I say Google please do a macro substitution with Google/Yahoo/Live Search :)).
Let me explain with an example, say I wanted to go to Martin Lefebvre’s page on linkedin (Martin is an investor at Infoaxe). In Google only the query “martin lefebvre linkedin” gives me the right result at number 1.
With Infoaxe (see image below) on the other hand, I can just type in “martin” and get what I want right at the top! Here its a savings of 2 words (or ~67% improvement).
Here is another example (again from personal usage). There is this really cool Thai restaurant called Siam Royal in Palo Alto. Just like everybody else, if I want to meet someone for lunch at Siam Royal I send them a pointer to its yelp page. To get to this page in Google, I need to type “siam royal yelp”. With Infoaxe all I need to type is “siam” !!
Here, there is again a savings of ~67%. These savings add up very fast…
This is our challenge for Infoaxe users. Be Lazy! The next time you search on Google to get to a page you know you’ve visited before, query with RIDICULOUSLY fewer words. We’ll find it! Let us do the work for you.
If we don’t find it now, let us know. We are constantly tuning our ranking algorithms and your feedback is very important to us.
Infoaxe has ranking algorithms tuned for Web Memory search, these are different from a tradional Web Search Engine which cannot be as aggressive with personalization for obvious reasons. General Web Search is a one size fits all for the most part (with some exceptions), and that works best in many cases. Infoaxe is your Personal Web’s Search Engine. So, be lazy & try querying with fewer words…we dare you! 😉
