I read on here once that Cutts said we wouldn't be able to backwards engineer the algo anymore? A slight randomise effect would certainly make that impossible....
In programming and organising results from a database this is very easy to achieve, even just “slight” randomising effect and a slight shuffle.
Since P2 im seeing movement all the time, sites just swapping 1-3 positions up and down, every update they re-shuffle (sites that aren't directories and glued into the serps I mean).
I’m starting to wonder if google runs a mini "randomise" effect every couple of weeks? It would make sense of the constant reshuffle I see anyway?
