Will the weird results (after penguin) make any difference to Google?

    In my opinion a common user will not be able to spot these blunders on the part of Google. But any experienced person can notice these easily. I would not be surprised if more and more internet users start using other browsers like Bing. User experience is the primary reason for the success of Google and if they are not able to provide relevant results for the users, they might end in deep trouble. What do you think about it ?

    I think that you messed up "browsers" with "search engines". I also think, that penguin works exactly as intended. Google wants to get rid of "spammy" results. The problem is, that due to the high black-hat competition of recent years, many niches do not contain non-blackhat sites. Even legitimate businesses used black-hat tactics and "over optimized" their content, because everyone else did it and without it you just could not rank. Therefore some freak results happen. For a short time there simply is nothing "valid" to put on the first page in those niches.

    Also: Google starts to understand the quality of texts. They bought algorithms, which are able to distinguish between real and fake user-reviews with 90% accuracy (we are speaking of texts where humans are not able to make out the difference at all). Can't post links yet, so if you want a reference do a little search. Its easy to find. The principles used in these algorithms can of course be applied to other "spammy" topics. Lets face the facts: 99% of the content produced by IMers is written with the goal to sell, not to inform. Googles customers want information, not salespages.

    In my opinion, the so called "blunders" are signs of google beeing on the way to clear its search-results of websites made with the intent to sell. Which, if true, of-course will mean a large paradigm shift for the IM world. Adapt or die is the game.

    Hello, I do not mean to sound like a A$$ but I have to mention to you two important things to know.
    1. Bing, Google and Yahoo ect. Are all Search Engines.
    2. FireFox, Chrome, Safari and Opera are all examples of Browsers.

    As you can see their is a difference.
    Now to the subject...Yes I do think Google is hurting themselves.

    Good Luck

    Well, you can get a "Bing" toolbar as a part of your IE browser if you want. It is a customiz-able search engine that I think maybe would be perfect for use in building smaller niches.
