Google Survey On Improving Search Results

For years and years, as far as I know, users will sporadically get a survey from Google asking them to rate the search results or ask which search result they prefer.

Eli Schwartz (no relation) emailed me a screen shot about a week ago of Google asking him to take such a survey. It asked him to "help improve Google" by telling Google "Which result do you prefer" of the search results.

Here is a screen shot:

Google Survey

Google sent Search Engine Land a statement on this when we asked, they said:

As you know, we always ask for user feedback in a range of forms - from live experiments to inviting people in to our UX labs - in order to improve our products. This is one of our experiments - one of many signals we take into consideration to make search better.

Again, this is nothing new, but the first time I've seen a clear screen shot of it and the first time I think we've written about it here (although, I can be wrong about that).

As far as I'm concerned it's too little too late for Google to present itself as caring about anything other than revenue... imho the best way to get the best results from Google is use https://duckduckgo.com/blinders/ or http://www.soovle.com/
