My point here isn't that the algorithm isn't objective- but that the rankings aren't. The two shouldn't be equated. Google has already acknowledged human tweaking of results (SearchKing isn't the only case). The human "adjustments" are more publicly visible when weaknesses of the algorithm raise discussion online- e.g. the case with that town in England.
