You mention in your post that it gives a better user experience and almost everybody is in favor of that but at the same time it's a lot less frustrating for everybody that plays by Google's rules and try to create great content. So again, thank you for that. :)

On one search for a keyword phrase there's a completely unrelated Wikipedia page, a random Twitter account for some company, and a page from an independent search engine from 1997 showing in the top 10 results. Yeah, that's the kind of quality user experience we want to see. Way to knock it out of the park.

April 24, 2012 5:08 PM sajid said... so many .info, .co unrelated domains ranked for respected queries. are you sure no mistake in this update?

you said " even no search engine optimization at all"

that mean seo dead now?
