However, they do probably care that it does provide poorer quality results to their users, which is something I am sure google would care about.
Yes, but can they really measure this? Remember how thrilled Amit Singhal was when post-Penguin searchers were doing lots more searching, but we were all like, "Yeah, because they keep going back to refine the query in hopes maybe someday they'll actually get the results they wanted?" After all, it just wasn't physically possible that even more people would be using Google than before.
If that's how they measure user satisfaction, I'm not confident that what WE see as a crappy user experience will be seen by them the same way.
