Is there a version of Google that excludes backlinks as a ranking factor?
The latest from yesterday’s news Google’s head of search spam Matt Cutts put out a new webmaster help video comes from BlueBumbleBee, Colchester, UK on Feb 19, 2014.
And the questioned is mentioned below …
does the big G have a version of the search engine that totally excludes any backlink relevance? I’m wondering what search would look like and am curious to try it out.
See the (short) video …
“We don’t have a version like that that is exposed to the public, but we have run experiments like that internally, and the quality looks much, much worse, It turns out backlinks, even though there’s some noise, and certainly a lot of spam, for the most part are still a really, really big win in terms of quality for search results.”
“We’ve played around with the idea of turning off backlink relevance, and at least for now, backlink relevance still really helps in terms of making sure we return the best, most relevant, most topical set of search results.”
Checked with reference to the documents mentioned below…
The conclusion is that in a short time outside the link building is still an important ranking factors and can not be removed. Before Alexander Sadovsky Head Of Web Search – Yandex, said the they will no longer count links as a ranking factor.
