I think a lot about search every day, at one level there's search at the scale of Google, but at the other end there's search as a feature of a product, like searching a catalog of things to buy, or looking for a movie, etc. #tweet100 #tech #business #search A 🧵 about search.
Today I sat down to write and the first thing that came to mind is how difficult it is for companies to implement search well in their products. 1/
How many times have you searched for a product on a site that you thought "surely I'll find what I'm looking for'', only to realize that they don't handle synonyms well or that you can only do an exact match to find the item you want. 2/

On Sunday morning, the #Taliban searched our house in #Kabul. No Imam (prayer leader) or Wakil-e Guzar accompanied the Taliban, but as it was house-to-house #search in the entire street, it is clear that those two couldn't go to each house.
Three TB for ca. 30 minutes searched...

Do you remember the #TikTok leggings?

If not then you definitely don't pay attention to social media. If you do remember, then let me introduce you to two guys that made them go viral and sold around 120,000+ units of the leggings in 2 months.

THREAD 🧵 (1/15)
Meet @josetorresrev and me, hi. We're the ones responsible for the hype around the TikTok leggings.

Anyways - we saw the potential of this product and knew that we could make this product pop, so we had to craft a game plan.

What we needed:

- Content (can‘t run Facebook Ads without proper creatives)

OK, some thoughts on the @elastic announcement and their move away from #opensource and the @TheASF license. A thread... ok a #rant. #search #elasticsearch
First these views are not those of the WMF, my employer, who happens to run a very large Elasticsearch cluster. Moreover, I competed with Elastic for a number of years as co-founder/CTO of @lucidworks and am a #lucene and #solr committer, so yeah, I'm biased.
I have a huge amount of respect for what Shay and others at Elastic built. Right time, right place, right execution across the board, esp. in those early years. But this blog post (…) is such typical corporate BS and so full of holes.

Last Saturday, @souvikdg and @hallidude chatted about #TechnicalSEO on the #ContentWeb series. Here’s a summary of takeaways: thread (1/12)
@souvikdg @hallidude Everyone wants to rank high on Google. Rarely do people care to understand how things work. Most want a quick fix. Hence SEO is often sold like Snake Oil. It may work. It may not work. And sometimes it may seem to work and then you’re busted for trying out evil tricks. (2/12)
@souvikdg @hallidude #Search engines are #website #aggregators, just like the food delivery aggregators who try to list every restaurant around us. But they also want to ensure that customers have a good experience. So they’ll prefer to recommend restaurants that offer great food and service. (3/12)

[#VEILLE|#SEARCH] Petit conseil pour votre veille Twitter sur le coranavirus : ne vous en tenez pas au simple #coronavirus, qui ne tient pas compte de la grande diversité lexicale sur le sujet, notamment quand vous comptez privilégier des sources scientifiques
Mieux vaut opter pour quelque chose comme

coronavirus OR covid-19 OR covid19 OR sars-cov-2 OR sarscov2 OR sras2 OR 2019-ncov OR 2019ncov

#Google is watching us…
How is #data #security done?
How can we get rid of the #adverts that we constantly encounter?
Google offers its users the most comprehensive #free #online services. But everything has a #price. Google collects #data by following us. It’s not a #secret anyway. Google, the data collection program does not keep confidential.
A lot of data is collected about things like #search queries, #location history, #voice commands, etc. The collected data is used by the #artificial #intelligence of google #technology to develop applications (smart, fast and sensitive).

About 40 ppl in a boat departed from #Libya and called the Alarm Phone at 18.30, after they reached the Italian #SAR zone near #Linosa. We immediately informed MRCC #Rome about the distress situation. There are no updates so far. Immediate #rescue is needed now.
Where are they?
We are worried about the people's fate. It's been nearly 4 hours since we lost contact with them. The Italian Coast Guard refuses to confirm a #search & #rescue operation.
Immediate rescue is needed, now!
We can now confirm that the boat which alerted us yesterday but then went missing was rescued by #OceanViking! The 50 people, including 10 children & an infant were rescued in the Maltese SAR zone. Despite severe weather conditions, they are all safely on board the #OceanViking!

John Maynard #Keynes was born on June 5, 1883, and died too early. Here's a few thoughts on why I keep circling back to him, & why his work forces 2 rethink the way we do & teach #economics, esp. #micro. I am sure this (partial) thread will upset someone: apologies in advance. 1/
#Keynes understood that #macroeconomics is about emergent properties: aggregate outcomes that don't make sense 2 the individuals populating the economy. The logic, e.g., of the #IncomeExpenditure model is that an economy can coordinate along any point on the 45-degree line.. 2/
and that, accordingly, we should expect economies to operate with slack. Then you have the #ParadoxofThrift and all that. He also talked about the #ParadoxofCosts when he discusses redistribution to lower income people who have higher propensity to consume... 3/

Startups enjoy ridiculing suits (& bus school profs!) for their focus on strategic planning rather than iterative learning, MVPs, etc... The tension betwn strategic planning and iterative learning has finally been resolved by @joshgans @sstern_mit @wu_jane
The Paradox of Entrepreneurship - ranking alternative viable strategies requires knowledge that can only be gained through experimentation, but experimentation to resolve uncertainty ultimately results in some level of commitment that can foreclose particular strategic options.
Implication for entrepreneurs: "to reject passivity in the process of commercializing their ideas, to recognize the shadow cost of learning by experimentation, and to apply "Test Two, Choose One" to guide their choice process." #startup #strategy #DecisionMaking

Les facteurs visuels qui encouragent le CTR sur les résultats de la SERP de Google. #SEO #Visibilité #Acquisition

Avec des chiffres dedans ! ⬇⬇⬇ 1/10
Quel SEO n’a jamais eu de discussion du type “si tu augmentes la meta description de 30 caractères, tu peux augmenter ton CTR de 10% !!” ou autres joyeusetés ?

Ca peut faire sourir. Reste qu’au fond, la question est : quels critères visuels dans les SERPs impactent le CTR ? 2/10
Une multitude de tests indépendants ont été effectués depuis des années, avec des méthodes allant du très hasardeux au solide ! :D
