How Search Engines Might Devine the Intent behind Regional Queries vs. Global Queries

How Search Engines Might Devine the Intent behind Regional Queries vs. Global Queries

A system for determining the intent of query that includes a search engine that receives a first search query, a query/click log module configured to store log data associated with the first search query; and a computational module that generates metric values associated with the first search query based on the log data and that determines that the first search query is one of a regional specific query or a global query based on the metric values, where the metric values reflect a likelihood of local intent of the first search query, and where the search engine provides search results selected in part based on the metric values.

Tiger Woods Quits Golf - an SEO Experiment

Tiger Woods is ready to quit golf to save his marriage, according to media reports.

Quoting a source close to the family, Woods and his wife Elin Nordegren are trying to reconcile, but it will be on his wife's terms, meaning no golf, Britain's Sun tabloid reported today.

"They have agreed to try and rebuild their marriage, but Elin will be the one calling the shots. It will be a long time before he's travelling the globe playing golf unless Elin's by his side," the source is quoted as saying.

"Tiger will have to work long and hard to get her to trust him again. Quitting golf shows he is willing to sacrifice something he loves so much to protect his family."

- my personal opinion is if she loved him then she woulsdn't ask him to quit their meal ticket... just take an extended vacation from the public eye until they get it sorted out. Honestly.. he cheated on her.. so.. it's kind of HER issue. right?

Now... what are the results in Google's Real time, Universal Search? What do they look like right now?
