Google: No Search Engine Is Completely Objective

Today?s Google Webmaster Help video gets a little philosophical. Matt Cutts takes on the question: How can Google be confident with their SERPs, when relying on inherently subjective signals that influence which sites display (i.e. using human ?quality raters? to ?

This is especially troubling when the studios’ notices catch media made specifically to criticize […]
