I can only tell from my daily searches and the statements about panda/penguin before they have been released.
Nearly all of my searches does not give me -> the <- pages back where i do find the needed information. The returned pages have little information, near by information or are not relvant. But the serps do not give me back the pages with the "total picture" for my question, only pieces.
The anoying thing is, that this algo seems to think i am to stupid to ask a good query. It ignores one or more words or replaces it with a ( in most cases ) not relevant synonym. Even to put a + before a word or set it in quotaion marks will not bring the algo to search for it.
The obvious thing in serps is, that the returned sites are most brands or big websites or live in a near nightbar hood to them. The not relevant pages are the diversity that MC did mention but they are all from "trusted" big brands.
tedster - why should a machine learning algo degrade all the former realy good sites to page 50+ even if they are white hat and do have a very good UE, metric ...?
Google would have already pointed out that they know changed their system to machine learning algo!
And even a machine learning algo needs some human direction input?!
