    I didn’t know Google had their own Council of Elders called the “Google Search Quality Launch Committee.” But that’s interesting to know!

    Wouldn’t click rates on search results measure the “teaser impact” of page titles and snippets, as opposed to the quality of search results and listed sites?

    Still, if click rates are being used as a quality metric, SEOs and site owners who focus on long, boring, keyword-stuffed titles might want to review their titling tactics.

    So how it is going to help in SEO? They change their algorithms whenever they want and never disclose all the changes they do.

    “Hundreds of quality raters”? Almost choked on my tea…

    I can only imagine the temptation to remove manually those spam outliers. But that’s where ethics comes: “knowing the difference between what you have a right to do and what is right to do”.

    This is a pretty decent bit of information Matt has shared about the click rates being used. Nice share.
