Ever Wondered How Google Answers Your Search Query?

Have you ever wondered how Google goes about turning all of the sites on the web into a relevant search result when you go to Google.com and type in your search?

Google’s own, Matt Cutts, attempts in a brief 7 minutes, to explain the mechanics of getting you a search result that contains your answer!

Note: This is more of a “how do the mechanics work” rather than a “how do I SEO my site so it performs well” kinda video.

I did note however that this is a newer video and the infamous PR (PageRank) word was used… perhaps dispelling the rumor that it’s being phased out for at least the time being. (However, it is still only one of over 200 signals used which includes everything from backlinks to navigation to site design.)
