Imagine Google extracting keywords from image text or GPS to associate with those images, to show them off in location based searches.
A couple of years ago, I asked the question, Will Google Start Reading Text in Images on the Web Soon? I was writing about a patent from Google that described how the search engine might identify documents that matched visual queries. In a slightly different approach, a newly granted patent from Google describes how the …

The Lagoon is a great place to go take a walk.  I would like to go out there this weekend, but we are getting heavy rainfall in San Diego (it's making up for the drought.)

Thanks but this is not my brain pattern flow LOL I think it's great for the people who resonate. My work is over the top with people who do not understand Trauma or Traumatic Brain Injuries, I give lectures to medical and injured people in order to understand the recovery proces.
 I think it best that I focus on what I do for this life time.
Great you are helping others in other avenues
BTW my name is MicheleElys ;D kinda picky about my name, loved the mother who gave it to me
Thanks for writing me ;D Cheers

This is from the John Marshall Birthplace Park outside of Warrenton, Virginia. Marshall was one of the most well known chief justices of the US Supreme Court, and his rulings established the Separation of powers between the three branches of the government and the ability of the Supreme Court to decide upon the constitutionality of laws in the United States.

The Search Engine Google became more conversational when Hummingbird came out, and it become a more mobile friendly site; reflecting more people connecting to the Web via phones and a desktop search that now can handle spoken queries. I came across a patent that focused upon spoken queries and conversational search that answers the question, "How did they do that?"
Facebook0Twitter0Google+0LinkedIn0Pinterest00sharesThe future of searches on the Web will likely involve searches by voice, as more and more people are connecting to the web with phones and Google has added voice search interfaces to its search on desktop computers. I thought it was interesting when I ran across a patent that focused on a problem that …

What did the Google Brain team do in 2015? They appear to have been very active in bringing machine learning to Google.

Join us for the first Bogus Hangout of 2017, where we will have a conversation about Search and SEO.   Ask your questions about SEO in the event thread, and we will try to answer them in the Hangout on Air.
 
Bill and Ammon's Bogus Hangout is a weekly chat and discussion event. The main crew are #SEO and #marketing folks (of some note) but guests come from all sorts of jobs and interests and our discussions may meander onto all sorts of topics.

The norm for discussion shows is to carefully pick guests and topics. That's where this show is most Bogus. This is a casual chat between interesting people and whoever joins is welcomed. Serendipitous chaos is our USP.

Our habit is to simply throw out a few invitations to guests without much (if any) ado, often without asking them in advance, and simply seeing who is free to turn up.

This week marks our first Hangout of 2017. If anyone asks what our New Year Resolution is, the answer is "720 pixels".

Story
Tagline
Interested in seo, search engines, searchers' behaviors, the future of search, the semantic web, music, the environment, and how the Web works.
Introduction
I grew up in New Jersey and Ohio, studied at the University of Delaware and Widener University School of Law, and spend a lot of my time either doing SEO, looking at the code behind web pages or with my nose buried in a search-related patent.

I previously lived in the Virginia Piedmont, about 50 miles west of Washington, DC in a county filled with horse pastures and farm fields. I am presently located in Carlsbad, California.

I enjoy reading fiction and science fiction, listening to most types of music, delving into  the history behind small towns, out door photography, and exploring nature.

I am the Founder and President of SEO by the Sea, and I like working with people with their web sites, to help make them easier to find, and easier to use.

Some posts I've written in the past that focus upon analyzing patents from the search engines:

I am the Director of Search Marketing at Go Fish Digital, on Google+ at Go Fish Digital

I am often called a patent analyst or patent expert or patent guru by many people and bloggers and media writers, but my job is not to analyze or interpret patents. I do that for fun, and to learn things about search engines and search that I otherwise couldn't.

I consider it performing due diligence and feeding my curiosity - the information behind many business models and algorithms that search engines use are being made public, and it's worth taking the time and making the effort to read through them and trying to understand what they say and why they say it.

I needed help with some tax issues, and contacted Dawn who was able to help me resolve those issues quickly and painlessly. It was a very professional experience, and she explained all the steps to me before we began; and resolved everything quickly. Her services are highly recommended.

I was very happy with the home inspection conducted by the Elite Group, and the report they provided was detailed, helping us to prepare and plan for needed repairs to the property being purchased. They were very careful, and helpful, and I feel safer after their inspection.

Convenient pay-for-parking place outside of LAX. It was easy to use, and not too far from the airport. The shuttle got me to the airport with plenty of time; and the cost was affordable.

We had a great view of the Oceanside Pier while dining at 333 Pacific. There was an incredibly large selection of Vodkas, Wines, and Beers to choose from, and the food all turned out terrific. I ate the Kobe Beef Meatloaf, which was very flavorful. There was a gentleman playing Saxophone on the end of the Pier, and the sounds of his performance kept us entertained during our dinner.

I stopped by to pickup lunch to take home, and was surprised by how flavorful my selection turned out. I had a Spicy Chicken Kim Chi Taco, which featured Chicken Teryaki and Kim Chi. The dining room was interesting and there were some tables out in front, but I took my meal home with me. It was very tasty, and I will stop by again.
