Do you wonder what happens behind the scenes of Google search? There are many factors that are considered when we make changes to the search system.
This video footage comes from the engineers' internal weekly search meeting: "Quality Launch Review." We hold the meeting almost every Thursday to discuss possible algorithmic improvements and make decisions about what to launch. This video is from the meeting that happened on December 1st, 2011, and includes the entire uncut discussion of a real algorithmic improvement to our spell correction system. The language can be technical, so we've included annotations to provide some context for the discussion (and have a little fun!). #searchtips #powersearching
