Searching On Google Glass? See How In Glass Diary Part 3

google-glass-logo-200pxSearch may become a common activity for Google Glass owners, but it’s a different kind of search to anything I’ve done before.

Since Glass is a mobile device and has no Web browser, it’s currently built for informational searches. Transactional queries (like [buy seattle mariners tickets]) and navigational queries (like [facebook]) don’t work well because Glass doesn’t have a Web browser. It’ll show you webpages that match those search terms, but you can’t visit them.

In other words: Search on Google Glass is about finding information, not webpages. And, for the most part, Glass seems to do pretty well already when answering informational searches. It also takes advantage of Google Now, the predictive search tool that Google uses to provide information before a search is done.

That’s the subject of my third “Google Glass Diary” article, which has just been published on our sister site, Search Engine Land:

Google Glass Diary, Part 3: How Search Works On Google Glass
