care to elab on if that references time for site to render, or time for user to be able to find answer within the page? or combo?

. There's a whole family of things you could measure as "time to result" and I can't go into detail about which ones we use. Sorry.

PS - really loved your presentation at SMX - it's the most transparent information I've seen from Google in probably five years

. Glad you liked. For transparency, I think the rater guidelines were actually a big deal. Read them yet?

Great prez. Where do Panda and Penguin fall in the life of a query? And are they query dependent/independent factors? cc

patent related to Panda suggests rank modifying near end, but score computed offline

1 thing they mention doing right at the end is determining if the query is navigational or not to decide if to apply Panda to result

that makes sense because it would allow them to whack sites kind of hard while still surfacing them for their brands

perhaps the most obvious "this is screwed up" / "what is wrong with Google" results is if navigational results are broken

good call…forgot about this. He did also mention in the q&a that panda falls in retrieval and scoring…guessing latter is focus.

right, don’t want to look bad on navigational stuff. Non-branded whole other story though.
