If you read their comments in a certain way, Amit Singhal and Matt Cutts have been dropping big clues about this for well over a year.
All those two ever seem to do is drop clues.
I know I just joined but I'm a long time reader here so I feel like I've been a member for years and one day I found a link to some youtube.com videos people were talkin about, so I watched tons of em that day tryin to figure out what I need to do to get this site I've been workin on to rank.
I remember in one Matt Cutts said "Wouldn't it be neat if we could find a way to tell someone really put a bunch of work into making a useful website for their visitors and reward them for it." or somethin like that, I probably don't remember exactly, because I was thinkin "No. What would be really neat is if you just told people what to do to rank #1 so we could all do it instead of puttin clues for people to try and find and figure out how to follow all over the place."
It's like they've hidden all these clues in what they say and expect us to track em down and figure out what the clues mean and how to use em instead of just tellin us exactly what to do.
I guess you're right though.
Some clues we can find and figure out is way better than not givin us anything at all to use.
