I do know Gary Illyes from Google goes to roll his eyes when he sees this put up, however I discover it humorous and I wish to share what he wrote on this Reddit AMA relating to Google’s rating elements. He was requested to share some extra search rating elements, and one which he shared was “Pornyness.”
It’s fundamental truly, Google does have an grownup content material classifier and that sort of content material does get handled in another way for a lot of causes. So sure, it’s a simple issue to tug out and say, sure, Google has an element for grownup content material. However simply the best way he stated it was humorous.
Right here was the query:
The CEO of Google throughout his testifying to Congress about person information (how the search works) stated that there have been 200 rating sign elements, however he solely talked about three of them: relevance, freshness, recognition. Would you want to say a number of extra rating elements?
He responded saying native, RankBrain, pageRank/hyperlinks, language, and he added “pornyness.”
The RankBrain bit was that he stated that however no matter. The “pornyness” is true however made me snicker as a result of most likely do not consider it as an element.
Somebody stated the identify “pornyness” sounds official and Gary wrote “Actually, it kinda is.”
