CNBC: We sat in on an internal Google meeting where they talked about changing the search algorithm — here’s what we learned. “In an effort to demystify how it runs its search engine, the company invited CNBC to sit in on an internal meeting where search executives discussed whether or not to approve one particular change: whether to put images next to some kinds of search results. The proposed change was small and hyper-specific, and Google’s decision was predictably data-driven. Ultimately, the meeting revealed both the grand complexity and the incremental simplicity of how Google shapes its search product.”
