Has anyone ever tried to list the '100 algorythms' Google uses?
I don't get too hung up on the algorythm thing but I think it is a good place to start when trying to improve your serps position. I know over optimisation is a key problem, though.
I just recently launched a site and the logs report quite a bit of clicks for a certain keyword on Google. In one day I jumped three spots on the SERPS and I don't see any other reason for the sudden jump other than lots of people clicking on it (i.e. no new links, optimizations, noticable updates, etc). The page is very new too, only about a week old, so it first appeared at spot #7 then moved to #4 after I started getting lots of clicks. From looking at the SERPS it really is one of the most relevant results for the search term, so suspect the clicks are telling the same thing to Google.
