Why Are My First Searches So Slow (And My Subsequent Searches So Fast)
Some of you have commented on the fact that the first time you search for a particular topic the returns come up rather slowly, while on subsequent searches for the same topic the returns popup virtually instantaneously.
The reason, very simply, is this. NeuroMama is not wired like other search engines. Its gene bank is different and its DNA is much closer to mimicking the thought processes of the human brain than the purelymathematical equations and older versions of artificial intelligence driving every other current search engine.
Which means (can you hear the drum roll?) that NeuroMama, like every real or silicone variant of the human brain, has to go through a learning curve (which typically takes one search on a given topic) before it can operate at optimal efficiency. The upside is that once it has “learned” something it can access, evaluate and return data about that “something” faster and more accurately than search engines relying on older technology.
Here’s a brief rundown of what our neural brain does during a learning search. It drills down into all the sites returning pages for that search word or term and examines them for quality, relevancy and all the usual factors used by other search engines.
On top of that, it analyses the search history of each site and assigns a searcher satisfaction level to each page based on a myriad of factors such as the amount of dwell time the average visitor spends on the page, whether the visitor went on from that page to other pages on the same site or ditched the site in favor of continuing their enquiries elsewhere and, in the case of e-commerce sites, home page to order page ratios.
Is our system perfect? No, but being self-learning it will continuously get better even without our help. And, most important, it’s damn sight better than search engines which base their rankings and return positions on the most corrupt beauty contest of all time – the wholesale buying and selling of boxcars full of back links that, according to the other search engines’ propagandists, somehow, in defiance of all reason and logic, confer “authority” on the “black-hat” sites buying the links.
Oh, one more thing … our neural analysis algorithms are based on raw data involving millions of aggregated searches and website activity. The neural analysis program puts nothing, not a cookie, not a crumb, not a spec of dust on your computer and it removes nothing whatsoever – your search history, ISP information, IP address, favorites, etc. etc. etc. – from it.
