Internal: PC Games Hardware with new search option
PC Games Hardware now integrated a new search option that uses the Google search technology and offers several advantages.
PCGH is now using the Google algorithm for the website's search.
You can think what you want about Google, but currently the search algorithm his hardly beaten by any self developed mechanism. Since we at PC Games Hardware have already been working on an enhanced search, we decided to use the Google search until we can offer a better solution.
Advantages of the Google search: • Speed: The Google search is much faster than the old version. • Relevance: For the Google search results the relevance of an article is taken into account. Thus you can find interesting articles more easily. • Search on the website and in the forum: The search is checking the website itself and the forum. Thus you can also find relevant posts in the forum, too.
Disadvantages of the Google search: • Advertisements on the right side • No adjustment to the appearance of the website
Of course you can still use the classic search where you can narrow down the parameters by setting a specific date and/or type of article.
