What I am noticing is that ever since panda was released, google has made a point of showing "high quality results". However, the answer we are searching for is not always found on a high quality page. Maybe the answer to my question is on a low quality directory page filled with no content and just basic rehashed information.
Google feels well if this high quality page has authority backlinks and has unique in depth content, it must be the answer to everyones questions. This is not the case. Showing relevance is sometimes a lot more important than showing a quality site. Google would rather show an authority site that has only one of the words in my search rather than show a result that has the exact phrasing or contains all of the words in my search because clearly to google, if this result has ALL the words listed in my search they are clearly trying to game their algo by purposely listing all those words for searchers like myself.
The proof is in the pudding, if you search google right now anything related to jupiter dermatology, this webpage will show up. Why? because WebmasterWorld is an authority site. Meanwhile a low quality website with questionable content and a handful of low quality backlinks may have the answer to my question, but I will never know.
