Personally no, I don't want Google to tell anyone how to rank #1, the SERPs are a big enough mess now, just imagine if there were hundreds/thousands of sites in every niche ALL implementing precisely the same/similar strategies?
Then you would see even more complaining with people saying "I've done precisely what you said and so has my competitor however why is he ranking above me?"
So you mean they really can't just tell us and they kinda have to do it the way they do cause there's no way all of us could possibly rank #1 all the time? Fascinating
Makes me wonder if that's what Matt Cutts was talkin about in that video.
Like maybe if people dig through things and figure things out more it'll show in the way they optimize and the more little clues they've figured out how to work into their site the more work Google will know they did and then they'll be rewarded with better rankings?
