Google changes search algorithm (Feb-2011)

Google changes search algorithm

Google has recently(24-Feb-2011) updated its algorithm. A lot of people are reporting changes in their rankings. Google launch this change in the U.S. only & planning to roll it out elsewhere.

The main adjustment is to move the content of better quality at the top of Google search rankings. The changes affect 12% of the results of Google, the company said in a blog on Thursday night.

Google said it makes about 500 changes to its algorithm for a year, but most are so small that the company did not indicate them. This affects 12 percent of searches, Google says, so it is large enough to significantly change the results people see.

"Our goal is simple: to give users the most relevant answers to their queries as quickly as possible," said Gabriel Stricker, Google spokesman. Generally, the Google algorithm changes are so subtle that few people notice them. But these recent changes can be seen immediately.
