    Ok so I noticed at the bottom of the goog search it says Add a result if you are logged into your Gmail. I added the URL and for me personally it shows it at the top of the search list. I also wrote a public comment. So what Im wondering is does google take that into consideration. Say you Proxy it and make like 50 accounts and Add its to the add result and commented it like 5 times a week?

    If anyone knows what Im talking about let me know! you have to be logged into gmail when you goog search your niche and its at the bottom.

    If this has any weight with the goog search HOLLA!

    thanks

    While that would be awesome I would be highly surprised if it did impact the search rankings much at all. It would be way too open for abuse and google are not stupid.

    Its kinda like the new up/down arrows next to each result which you can use to increase or decrease the ranking for each listing, I doubt this will change the rankings either.

    I agree with jim. Although this would be nice, i think it's a long from happening if ever.

    Google is definitely not stupid, and I'm sure they already took into account that some people will try to game them on this.

    Not saying that it's impossible, just saying it doesn't seem like it will be happening anytime soon.

    Google's official comment is "At this time data entered in Search Wiki only effects that current user, and is not utilized for general SERP's"

    Will it be used in the future? Somehow yes, whether it's used to "profile people" to stuff more targeted advertising down their throats or a factor in the algo nobody knows.

    But rest assured, they didn't just build it for the hell of it there's always a motive.

    They most likely built this to help them get a better idea fro what sites people are loving and not loving when hey search for something. Google is all about its users.

    So what better way to find out what they are liking than allowing them to customize their search results?

    There are probably many other reasons, but I have a feeling this is at least part of it.

    They can already do this by click/bounce patterns in the SERP's, Adsense Data, Analytics, Google Toolbar, Chrome etc right down to things like Feedburner stats.

    Problem is most this data is tied to an IP, Specific Machine or Browser which may have different individuals using it like family members etc. Search Wiki is tied to a personal account and typically a specific individual, so this goes in to the realm of human profiling especially after their announcement of their new "DART Cookie".

    Google is about advertising, and gathering every piece of data about it's users as possible in order to present them ads that will convert.
