hypnosec writes: Google has announced a list of changes, totaling 86 in numbers, for the month of June and July that it is going to release for its search algorithm most of which are meant to influence the quality of search results. On its Inside Search blog post, Google has listed 57 changes for the month of June, 22 changes for the month of July and 7 other changes. The changes that Google is making include 6 “Page Quality” changes that will try and bring out more high-quality and unique material from trusted source. Changes under project codenamed “Answers” will incorporate detection of natural language and will address things whereby people search for things like “What is the time in India?”, "When is Mother's Day?", "What is $500 in euros?", etc. Google has also worked on how relevant images are being showed in results. Adult content filtering is also a focus in the current list of changes under project codenamed “SafeSearch”.
