    That person who wrote that, makes a lot of mistakes. They don't know the difference between Google Bombing and Google Washing. They have an example of a Google Bomb and called it Washing. Also:

    "Mayer also talked about Google’s use of user data created by actions on Wiki search to improve search results on Google in general. For now that data is not being used to change overall search results, she said. But in the future it’s likely Google will use the data to at least make obvious changes. An example is if “thousands of people” were to knock a search result off a search page, they’d be likely to make a change."

    That reads more like personal search or search on wiki (wikipedia?) and using that data for the SERPS which has been talked about over the years. It's impossible to hand adjust billions of pages. So this:

    "Google this week admitted that its staff will pick and choose what appears in its search results. It's a historic statement - and nobody has yet grasped its significance."

    Is just your typical overblown and taken out of context (aka link bait) statement to get links and attention, like this thread
