Matt Cutts Video Jan 15, 2014

Google’s Matt Cutts head of search spam has put out a new webmaster help video comes from Jacob Worsøe, Denmark on January 15, 2014 . Cutts discusses whether results in different positions are ranked by different Google algorithms.

And the Question Is mentioned below..?

Do Google use the same algorithm to rank all the results on page 1, or different algorithms for a wider variety in the results? (Pos. 1-3 – primary focus on freshness Pos. 4-6 – primary focus on backlinks Pos. 7-10 – primary focus on social signals)

Here is the video for you all to watch:

Video Transcription

I’m only going to concentrate on the web ranking because that’s what I know about, and in general, the rankings are not different for, you know, positions 1-3 and 4-6 and 7-10,” Mattt says. “It’s the same algorithm that returns lots of different web results – you know, 100 or even 1,000, and then with those, we just sort them in order of what we think the trade-off of relevancy vs. reputation. So we want something that’s very relevant, but also as reputable as we can find.

So it’s the same algorithm that generates all of those sorted lists of results, and then that shows up on the first page,” he adds. “So for the most part, for web ranking, it’s not the case that position number 9 is saved for, you know, things based on backlinks or anything like that. It’s the same algorithm that’s generating that list of search results.

Bottom Line

Matt’s answer is that it’s the same algorithm that returns all results in spite of the position. For web positions, the algorithm does its best to sort as well as order results based upon relevance and reputation.
