At Google’s “Searchology” event this week, the search engine giant announced that it has tweaked its search alogrithm so that it pulls more personal information from user-created sites like Yelp and social networks like Facebook and LinkedIn.
The aim of this new improvement is meant to make people searches more powerful. People searches will now return more names, titles and locations, so as to improve results on people search queries.
The new personal information will help Google stay on top of the people search market.
