82% Of SEOs Don't Trust Google Doesn't Share Data For Search Rankings

share data pollAbout a month ago, we ran a poll asking Does Google Search Quality Use Data From Other Departments (i.e. Analytics, AdWords, etc)?

I am honestly shocked to see that 82% of those who answered the poll do not believe Google when they say they do not use this type of data for search ranking purposes.

  • 82% said Google likely does use data from other Google departments for search quality purposes
  • Only 11% feel they do not
  • 7% said they likely use only some data

I know many SEOs do not trust Google but this is pretty overwhelming.

I should note, this poll only has 86 responses, which is a very low response rate for our polls.
