I wonder if HP ever considered creating their own HP search engine to compete with Google...Good idea or Bad idea ?
Do you have any idea of the work that goes into creating and maintaining a search engine algorithm? Google tweaks theirs over 300 times a year and still can't beat the spam.
I'll write one up for them over the weekend.
I believe strongly we need to address the searches within our own site for offering the highest quality. I love HubPages but often search via Google with HubPages in the search terms to find the best of the best.
When I search within our site, I see time and time again hubbers with no photo, low quality hubs (great key terms but no substance).
I agree with WryLilt, it is a daunting task but one we should start with the objective simply of offering the best of the best when searching within our site.
I would like to see a filter where the hubbers without a profile photo don't even show up in the internal search.
There is a lot of difference between creating a stronger internal search and creating one that indexes and returns results from the entire internet.
I could not agree more. My opinion is IF we cannot have a strong internal search, how can we even begin? I feel strongly that our internal search weakens our site overall.
If we are showcasing hubbers without photos - aren't we doing a dis-service to those who are trying?
Before we even attempt an algorithm, we first must be able to perform a basic filter internally.

I noticed that 98% of my hub organic traffic is from google, why not from other search engines, specifically yahoo search engine and bing?
