Google has tweaked the formulas steering its Internet search engine to take the rubbish out of its results. The overhaul is designed to lower the rankings of what Google deems "low-quality" sites.
That could be a veiled reference to such sites as Demand Media's eHow.com, which critics call online "content farms" -- that is, sites producing cheap, abundant, mostly useless content that ranks high in search results. Sites that produce original content or information that Google considers valuable are supposed to rank higher under the new system.

Coolness. This blog is #2 in the search for "Xenophilius" now. I hope it stays that way through the last Harry Potter movie, July 15th in the USA.
Tip: If you want to see the last HP movie a few days early on July 13th, you could fly to France or Sweden according to IMDB.
