The technology is making it possible for search engines to crawl for keywords that are better for search and more profitable for advertisers, according to a report in Business Insider.
Search engines can now “solve” problems that are not indexed by Google, and can crawl the top searches for a given keyword.
“Ajax is a way for search to crawl things that Google is not interested in,” John C. Gartner, president and chief executive of Gartners, told Business Insider in an interview.
“It’s not something Google is interested in, but it’s a way to crawl something that Google may be interested in.”
Search engine companies are using this technology to index the top search results for a keyword, and Google, Yahoo and Bing can crawl them.
It also allows search engines like Google and Bing to crawl the results of their competitors.
The news follows a report last month from The Information, which found that Google had been making millions of dollars off of its search engine indexing business for at least two years.
A Google spokesperson told Business Week that “we’ve been working hard to improve our search ranking” and that “the vast majority of people search for our products on Google.”
The company’s stock, which hit $50 on Monday, has soared in the last week.
“If you search for ‘apple’ or ‘covid’ or even ‘sugar’ or the like, you’ll get results for these keywords,” Google VP of engineering Marc Andreessen said in a blog post.
Google’s algorithm is designed to “automatically rank websites based on what other websites are saying,” he wrote.
“When you search on Google, you’re not looking for information.
You’re looking for a query, or something that might lead you to the right answer.”
A Google spokeswoman told Business Daily that Google was “committed to building the world’s most search-friendly search engines,” but that the company had been working on this technology for several years and was not aware of any previous cases of the technology being used to crawl search results.
“We’re working on the solution, and will continue to improve,” she added.
Google has said that it is in discussions with several other search engines about using the technology.
Google Search is available on the desktop and mobile versions of its web and mobile apps.
The search giant’s search engine has been around since 2006 and is a subsidiary of Alphabet Inc.
