Google Reportedly Blackmailed Websites Into Giving It Content For Free

http://t.co/HadYck7rrG - I wish the FTC had taken stronger action here, given their findings, but Google's immense lobbying efforts probably helped soften the impact.

A New Google Ranking Algorithm?

According to http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg22530102.600-google-wants-to-rank-websites-based-on-facts-not-links.html#.VPLTqMutvqD, it's coming soon:

"Instead of counting incoming links, the system – which is not yet live – counts the number of incorrect facts within a page. "A source that has few false facts is considered to be trustworthy," says the team."

Here's the paper on which the article is based http://arxiv.org/abs/1502.03519v1

"We call the trustworthiness score we computed Knowledge-Based Trust (KBT). On synthetic data, we show that our method can reliably compute the true trustworthiness levels of the sources. We then apply it to a database of 2.8B facts extracted from the web, and thereby estimate the trustworthiness of 119M webpages. Manual evaluation of a subset of the results confirms the effectiveness of the method."
