Inside the Google algorithm

The algorithm that powers Google Search is one of the most important, most complicated, and least understood systems that rule the internet. As of this week, though, we understand it a little better. Thanks to a huge leak of API documentation, we got an unprecedented look at what Google cares about, how it ranks content, and how it thinks the internet should work. The leaked documentation is dense, and it doesn’t tell us everything about how Google ranks, but it does offer a set of signals we’ve never seen before.

On this episode of The Vergecast, we discuss everything in the leaked documents, the SEO community’s reaction, the potential regulatory implications of it all, and what it means to build a website in 2024.

After that, we talk about the recent spate of media companies (including Vox Media, The Verge’s parent company) making content and technology deals with OpenAI. Are media companies making the same mistakes they did with Facebook and others, or are they actually trying to make sure they don’t make those mistakes again? We have a lot of thoughts, and we also want to hear from you in particular — disclosure is The Verge’s brand, after all, and we want to know how you think we should talk about all this. Email us at [email protected], call the hotline at 866-VERGE11, and tell us everything on your mind.
