Google just announced a whole slew of changes to its search algorithms, a total of 50 changes in all.
If you’re a search geek, you’ll be impressed at the level of attention that goes into this stuff. And the codenames are interesting and diverse: “Blackboard,” “Cosmos Newsy,” “IceMan5,” and “Maestro, Maitre,” for example.
But this entry stopped me cold.
More relevant image search results. [launch codename "Lice"] This change tunes signals we use related to landing page quality for images. This makes it more likely that you’ll find highly relevant images, even if those images are on pages that are lower quality.
Yeah, the codename for this project was Lice. Ewwww. Was the team working on this feature being punished?
