When you perform a search with the Google search engine, the search is no longer only by keywords, it can now answer the questions and statements in the same way a human could do. This is done by analyzing the motion in its entirety, even if it is not an exact answer.

For example, ask Google this: “Tell me about the Impressionists.” Google will display a list of artists but it also displays information to learn more about the Impressionist movement, browse individual works, or switch to abstract artists using filters.

“Remember what it was like to look in 1998? You sit down and start your bulky computer, dialing your modem, type in a few keywords, and you get 10 blue links to websites that have these words. It seemed like magic!” 

“The world has changed so much since then: billions of people are coming online, the Web has grown exponentially, and now you can ask any question about what is the powerful little device in your pocket.”

Users need only once mentioning the context. For example, if searching for information concerning Big Ben, the researcher has to do is say ‘Big Ben’ once, Google will know that if someone requests information on this monument, but then asks for directions that the two questions concern the same thing.
