However it's not a few results is it? Every sector I look at is a mess and don't even go down the images route, that's so screwed-up it's unreal.
Depends on how many sectors and queries you're looking at. I know someone said they track 600 queries here and it sounds like a bunch, but out of even 1 million unique queries it's 0.06% or barely even a blip and out of 1,000,000*1,000,000 (1 trillion) overall queries a year (some are obviously repeated in that number but) 600 queries out of that many searches is nothing even close to statistically relevant: it's 0.000000006%.
Even if we take the 600 queries and multiply it by 10 results per page to say they're tracking accuracy of pages returned in the results, then look we at the number of overall pages to choose from the portion being reviewed and tracked for accuracy is 0.00000006%.
