Agora node [[crowdsourced-search]] ↓
Any entity can have a node in the Agora.
Search queries are entities.
- Search queries can also be decomposed in constituent entities for better modeling using a grammar, but that is not strictly necessary.
- Search queries are entities.
- The Agora is a distributed knowledge graph by the people, for the people.
- From the above it seems to follow that the Agora is a sufficient platform to implement crowdsourced search.
- pull jump agora search
- You can add the Agora as a search engine in your browser: https://anagora.org/jump?q=%s
Pulled node [[agora-search]] ↓
The agora is in essence equivalent to a distributed wiki.
- Note you could theoretically use a wiki to crowdsource search results; in the limit, think of having a wiki page for every likely user query.
Perhaps agora search tries to find a good match for your query locally and redirects to other agoras in the network or to google or duckduckgo if a good local result isn't available.
- When it volunteers something, it also offers to continue your query in the search authority of your choice.
- push and pull could be used to offer hints for how to route queries to relevant results.
The agora can already be used as a search engine.
To do so, you can use the following URL template in your browser of choice:
- Searching this way behaves the same way as searching using the text box always at the top of this agora.
- As of 2021-02-27, you can also just use open search to add the agora as a search engine; this works at least on firefox. You should be able to see the agora as an available search engine to add in the search box.
The agora will try to serve any relevant nodes for your queries -- useful for when you have notes on the topic you're searching for.
- In every case, the agora will try to make it easy for you to 'click through' and continue your search elsewhere -- in established search engines or the websites of your choice.
- To do so, you can use the following URL template in your browser of choice:
- Agora Search is crowdsourced search for the open internet.
- user story
- pull crowdsourced search
Pulled node [[jump]] ↓
- An Agora action.
- Jump is very simple: it encodes a query as a node id (using unicode-slugify, if you're interested) and sends you to the matching node.
- If you are viewing this in an Agora, you can use jump by typing in the jump box at the top of the page.
