Bless this man for digging into this.

How Google May Calculate Site Quality Scores (From Navneet Panda)

This post is about a Google patent from a well-known Google Engineer, that describes ranking search query results at an internet search engine, such as Google.

Google aims at identifying resources, of different types such as web pages, images, text documents, multimedia content, that may be relevant to a searchers situational and information needs and does so in a manner that they hope is as useful as possible to a searcher. They do this while responding to queries submitted by searchers.

Great read. Bill rules.

That patent seems to provide some backing to the theory that EMDs just don't get you that far, because Google can't as easily tell if they're "site queries." Among many other takeaways.

"Bill rules." I'll second that, Phil!

Can't wait to read. Thanks for sharing Justin and for pulling out some of the gold nuggets Phil, which makes me want to read it even more!

Great point Phil and that's why its so important to use multiple channels to promote your brand. Queries go several layers deep
