Luke in one of his latest pieces talks about how Google is adding subtle clustering models to their results. I think it is all well and good, but what about the already good examples of clustering that are already out there?
Now someone could say these don’t work that well .. and btw, i don’t use them, so that must say something about HOW they are doing the clustering, but it sounds like the big boys are just ignoring the good work of others.
But I would ask the question, is “clustering” really the next way to make search results more meaningful and lead me to the end result of finding what I’m looking for. It does help to narrow the results, but does clustering help in the way that make findability better.
No answers, just questions.
