(EDITOR'S NOTE: But you do stack ranking based on what NSA tells you to do)
From the beginning, our approach to search has been to provide the most relevant answers and results to our users, and it would undermine people's trust in our results, and our company, if we were to change course.
(EDITOR"S NOTE: More lies. Not most relevant except most relevant to what the NSA tells you to do)
We have a great track record of providing open access to election information.
Our work with the Voting Information Project in collaboration with the Pew Charitable Trusts has helped millions of voters since 2008 get access to details on where to vote, when to vote, and who will be on their ballot. We have made this information freely available via the Google Civic Information API, which has allowed other developers to create useful applications, such as the work by Mobile Commons in 2012 that allowed voters displaced by Hurricane Sandy to find their polling place by texting. We will roll out even more useful search information tools during this U.S. presidential election cycle as well.
Just as any electoral system must be trusted to be considered valid, so too must our search results.
(EDITOR'S NOTE: Just as Diebold voting machines are rigged -- so are Google search results)
We know that; its essential to who we are, and a necessary part of our success as company. So, as a result, we work very hard to earn and keep the trust of everyone who comes to our site looking for answers.
