Interesting, and good post, Mikkel.
Now that would be fantastic: an objective, third party relvancy test, held perhaps twice a year, augmented by an international board.
Would give the SEs quite an incentive to work on their algos, especially for new and second tier engines. I'm sure it would lead to great improvement across the board.
Google is vastly overrated, even by experienced webusers.
I think it's true that Google has not substantially improved their relevancy for a long time. They are still good though. The question is just how scalable their algo is.
