Google tweaks algorithms, affects 11.8% of search queries

February 26, 2011

At the end of this past week, Google (perhaps due to pressure by Blekko’s banning of content farms) announced that it has tweaked its search algorithm. According to Google, this should only affect 11.8% of search queries.

Oh, and it’s only for US users (for now).

In related items, the backlash against Google’s market superiority continues, including emerging research showing that Google hard-codes its own links to appear at the top of search results in both finance and map searches.

Two things to keep in the back of mind as we search.
