Do you think this idea for improved search engine rankings using
artificial game markets could work?
The idea is to create a very different kind of ranking than Google that
ranks highly those web pages that are not yet popular but are predicted
to be popular by the artificial game market.
For example, a search for "word processor" on Google might bring up
abiword and microsoft word ranked highly while a search using this
technique might bring up TeXmacs ranked highly.
Although TeXmacs is less popular than abiword and microsoft word right
now, it might be predicted by the artificial game market to increase
significantly in popularity in the future.
Re: Using Artificial Game Markets to Improve Search Engine Rankings
still allows players to compete by trying to predict which URL U will
rank more highly on Google in the future given some query Q.
The information obtained from this game will be used to build a
Speculative Search Engine that will rank more highly those web pages
that are not yet popular but that are predicted to be popular by
players of the Speculative Search Game.
Please let me know if you encounter problems with the game. BTW, I
plan to update the URL "recent ranks" at least daily.
