I don't want to get into an argument, but white space is a very important design consideration.
To quote Wikipedia :
White space should not be considered merely 'blank' space — it is an important element of design which enables the objects in it to exist at all, the balance between positive (or non-white) and the use of negative spaces is key to aesthetic composition.
White space is the foundation of minimalist design - take a look here for a good explanation [graphic-design.com...]
By Google's standards, a key visionary like Bill Bernbach would be slapped with an instant penalty.
Sure it's their algo...
