Recently, Google had a major adjustment on its search algorithm: Users can directly see answers to the searched question on the top of the page.

There are billion of search requests each day on Google. There is no doubt that the algorithm will become the subject of discussion. Last year, Google did an adjustment to its search algorithm every 17.5 hours in average. We all experience the change of the algorithm. Following information chart summarizes the major changes of Google search algorithm since 1998.
