Page Hunt : un jeu pour améliorer la pertinence de Bing - Abondance : Référencement et moteurs de recherche

Page Hunt est un jeu qui propose de deviner les mots clés nécessaires pour trouver une page donnée. But avoué : améliorer à terme la pertinence du moteur de recherche Bing de Microsoft... Alliés avec des universitaires pour initier un jeu, baptisé Page Hunt, le jeu devrait, à terme, permettre d'améliorer l'algorithme de pertinence du moteur de recherche. Principe du jeu : des pages web sont affichées sans leur adresse URL et l'internaute doit trouver les mots clés permettant de trouver cette page. Si, après avoir saisi un mot clé, le site en question en question apparaît dans les cinq premiers résultats, l'internaute gagne. Le tout en moins de trois minutes. Plutôt amusant comme concept (même si, dans les pages proposées, le jeu affiche parfois des erreurs 404...)....Bien vu... A noter que Google avait lancé en 2006 un outil nommé Google Image Labeler, sur un concept assez similaire, basé sur la taggage des images.
