Obviously the quality of content should be the #1 ranking factor but it isn't. But that's no-one's "fault". It's just that technology isn't advanced enough to do that yet. Until then it's down to us to be resourceful.
The main issue is that Search is in it's infancy and it's far, far away from where it needs to be. That should hopefully change one day but even if it does there will never be enough effective spots to keep everyone happy.
