Wikipedia authority dilution after WikiSearch?

    Google has algo which highly consider backlinks to rank webpages for search queries. [accepted by Google for miserable failure bomb case]

    But sometime its not all backlinks which play the role -- other important factor is authority of the domain [not particular webpage]. And in this area nobody seems to beat wikipedia in Google.

    But if WikiSearch comes out with this face

    Note -- sponsored links on right side. ---- this is same spot from Google earns its living.

    Would WikiSearch effect authority value of wikipedia in Google?

    I am sure it will effect.

    Though i am not sure how devaluing authority rank of wikipedia will help Google to sustain same position in search engine world. But on the other hand if they don't touch authority rank ... its undigestable to me. :)

    hmmm interesting... Would google's adsense arm deliberately tamper with returns to keep away competition.... and will this reduce value of Wik links? Interesting questions... Sorry- no answers.

    The face of the search engine looks very familiar. Google allows you to use their search API to make your own little search engine for you site, so maybe this is just a version of that. It does look a lot like a Google style search. On a side note, it would be about time that Wikipedia started making some money instead of asking for donations.

    No NO... :rolleyes:

    It would be search engine based on human intelligence and experience not machines

    See this "Search Wikipedia & External Links" under wikisearch logo [though not official]

    Guys keep in mind the name of it isn't wikiasari it's the name of the software that will power it. Not the actual search engine. And that screenshot was discredited by the wikiasari homepage by the way. Plus I really don't think it's going to come out this quick it takes a lot to manage something as big as this not to mention getting all the bugs out. So I'd really wait and see if they announce a date of release before getting excited, it could be in 2008 for all we know.

    Thank you
