To try to understand human interaction with a website as a guage of 'usefulness' is just so far beyond Google (or anyone) at the moment to be laughable.
Don't forget that their original way of classifying popularity by comparing "votes" of another content providers was very successful, although a kind of naive for some too. I don't think that the broadening of the model by including users/consumers in the voting process will be a wrong move. Actually, I am pretty sure, we have been witnessing it already for some time.
