Google employees and executives, including co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, disagree about how much and how much intervention in search results. Employees can request Industry Email List revisions in specific search results, including on topics such as vaccinations and autism,” the journal wrote. Google employees are constantly discussing algorithms and whether Google should take certain action. There are real humans in the business and these Industry Email List conversations are likely to happen. But has Google ever been proven to make algorithmic changes to promote a political or economic agenda for the company?
Not yet. Google does a lot to ensure that search results are authoritative. Google has done this in many algorithmic updates over the years. One Industry Email List of the most public was named Project Owl. The overall theme of Project Owl was to make search results return more reliable results that users can trust more, and to reduce the amount of fake news Industry Email List and content showing up in search. “To evaluate its search results, Google employs thousands of poorly paid contractors whose purpose, according to the company, is to assess the quality of the ranking algorithms.
Even so, the contractors said Google gave these workers feedback to convey what it believed to be the correct ranking of the results, and they revised their ratings accordingly, according to the contractors interviewed by the Journal. The collective Industry Email List ratings of entrepreneurs are then used to adjust the algorithms,” the Wall Street Journal report states. These contractors have no access to or control over the search results that you or I see in Google. All they do is report to Google engineers whether the search results they are looking for are good or Industry Email List bad results. It's the same as when you go to a hotel, you might get a survey asking you how was your stay.
