Where will Qwiki fall in rankings on Search Engines?
Google resides as the most widely used search engine. Amongst their competition is Yahoo, Bing and perhaps now Qwiki. Qwiki is an Interactive Search Engine, and could quite possibly give Google a run for their money, ultimately changing the way that people utilize the internet and quest to find information.
Before now, the
way that a search engine displayed search results, was to provide the user with
links that would take them to a website to review the searched for information.
Qwiki aims to give an entirely new experience when searching the web. Now,
rather than links and small tad bits of information, Qwiki tells a story, combining
the text that other search engines display with the information on an online
information source such as Wiki.com and then accompany the information with a
visual element comparable to experiencing something on You Tube. Qwiki has been
partly funded by the co-founder of Face book, Eduardo Saverin who has given $8 million
towards its development.
Why search on Google to read information when you can utilize a search engine that will give the same information, but spare you the effort to actually read the findings. With Qwiki an audio/visual summary of information covering the search term is played- taking virtually all effort out of searching for information. When you are through with your search findings Qwiki takes information sharing to the next level, returning text to the user as well as a Multi-Media Presentation. With applications for your Mobile and I-Pad on the way, could Qwiki be taking the spot of Google as the most utilized search engine?
Although the innovation behind Qwiki blows the offerings of Google’s search engine away, does it really stand to give Google a run for their money for their TOP SPOT PLACEMENT AS THE LEADER OF ALL POWER HOUSE SEARCH ENGINES? With the launch of the Search Engine still fresh, it is too soon to tell the effect if any that Qwiki will have to Google. In the grand scheme of things 8million dollars may sound like a lot of money, but is equivalent to excess pocket change to a corporation such as Google. With the billions that Google has accumulated through its numerous endeavors over the years, they are not likely to be taken by surprise by anyone, even if Qwiki does become a household name.
Who knows, there is always the chance that Qwiki will partner up with another billion dollar company, such as Apple or Microsoft- and have the backing to reform Search Engines and put Google’s run as leaders of the Internet to an end. To give an accurate comparison, it is safe to say that this is a David and Goliath type of affair-and with technology, based on power and power based on money, Google won’t be losing their title anytime soon. Only time and search results will tell what the future holds for Qwiki, Google, and how we receive Information from the Internet.
