Google tunes search engine for facts, events.

Google is making it easier for people to find factual answers and event information directly in its search engine results, as it continues evolving and enhancing its core product, the company said Friday.

"These [new features] focus on the efforts we've put in on understanding the Web better, understanding the content on it, not just [matching] keywords," said Noah Weiss, a Google product manager, in an interview.

For search queries that can be answered with a simple, short fact, such as a country's population, a book's author or the height of a landmark building, Google will in the coming days start delivering a new type of result.
