Google Relevance Might Improve

New Scientist reports in its May 1, 2005 issue that Google "has plans that will dramatically improve" ranking in news searches. Google has filed patents which suggest that they will give extra points to "credible" US & worldwide news sources which would be added into their relevance ranking formula. That is, content from CNN or the BBC would get extra points for being "credible", which might cause CNN or the BBC's site to display higher in the results list.

Definitely worth watching!
