Re: <nettime> Google cranks up its Engines of Consensus


Page rank has far less significance than it had 6-7 years ago when Google, Inc.
got established - exactly by using page rank.

The problem is the ratio of human-generated links to
machine/corporation/blogger generated links. These days it's far smaller than
it used to be. When was the last time you created a permanent link to an
interesting permanent page on a permanent publicly-accessible page? Even if
Google, Inc. wanted to harvest it it's just not there.
