    It makes sense. The more randomness you insert into the ranking factors, the harder it gets for A/B testing.

    The only "randomness" is the factor is Google split testing multiple factors at once... but that only SEEMS random to the end user and is still decided upon based upon protocols generated either by Google employees or the AI. So no, Google doesn't waste time doing things for the fuck of it.

    I have personally experienced exhausting as much money & SEO effort as I possibly can only to fall short to sites who seemingly have done less than I, both on and off the page. I feel like there might be random factor, although I'm not sure. I mean this is Google we're talking about.

    How is this for random... if it's too close just display Amazon, eBay, Best Buy, and Target for the results.

    I have 2 websites which are basicly identical (same theme, same keywords, similar url, similar content, similar structure, similar seo).

    Site 1 ranked top 5, site 2 ranked top 20.

    After the Fred updates site 1 top 20, site 2 is now top 10.

    Never understood why...

    From personal experience I believe in it. Ideally what I do is have a small budget and put up 3 sites like if I wanted a drone affiliate site I would make.

    Droneaholics.com
    Droneguru.com
    Dronehq.com

    Put 5 1000 word articles that would be my main money keyword articles on each. Then shoot a few low level pbn links at each. Wait a few weeks see which one ranks quicker and then focus all efforts on that one expanding the articles and building it out.

    I usually find doing this 1 website stands out more than the others immediately.

    But this could be a number of different factors, even small changes in layout or text or strength of one pbn over another could change some factor sin the algorithm so it could just be one site is liked more than the other without any magic
